It is well established that many people's diets are deficient in two essential bone-making nutrients, calcium and magnesium, and that low calcium intakes can contribute to osteoporosis. The Department of Health recommends that women should have an intake of up to 1200mg of calcium per day, a level that is hard to achieve through diet alone, especially if the diet contains little dairy produce.
Calcium plays the essential role of the mineralising agent for our bones and teeth and also assists in maintaining a healthy nervous system. Magnesium, which is increasingly absent from the food we eat, is also necessary for a healthy nervous system and a sufficient amount is required to maintain nerve health. Magnesium is known to help in the deposition of calcium in the bones rather than in to the soft tissues in our body and a dietary intake of the ratio of 2:1, calcium:magnesium is often recommended. Both calcium and magnesium are presented together because too much calcium can lead to low levels of magnesium, Lamberts Osteoguard formulation adheres to this recommended intake ratio
In situations where calcium absorption is of critical importance, it may be helpful to consider using Osteoguard Synergy
as well. Osteoguard Synergy is a soluble fibre prebiotic - not a calcium supplement - which studies indicate may modify the bowl flora in a positive way that improves the absorption of calcium.
