Bluebonnet's Calcium Magnesium Softgels are specially formulated with a high potency combination of calcium, magnesium, zinc, plus natural vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) from lanolin. Bluebonnet Nutrition's Calcium Magnesium Softgels are available in easy-to-swallow softgels for maximum assimilation and absorption.
Calcium (macromineral) is the most abundant mineral in the body found primarily in the teeth and bones, supporting their maintenance and growth by making them dense and strong. A small amount of calcium is present in blood plasma (1%) and other body fluids, where it influences muscle contraction, nutrient passage through cells, nerve transmission and blood clotting. Dietary sources high in calcium include milk, cheese, fortified cereals and green leafy vegetables.
Magnesium (macromineral) helps maintain muscles, nerves, bones, and teeth and is essential for carbohydrate and protein metabolism, cell reproduction, and smooth muscle action, including heart muscle tone. Magnesium is required for cellular metabolism and energy production. It also facilitates absorption of calcium and potassium and the processing of vitamin D. Dietary sources high in magnesium include milk, cheese, green leafy vegetables, yogurt, grains, apples, bananas and wheat bran.
Zinc (micromineral) is vital to a multitude of biological functions, including immune resistance, digestion, reproduction, physical growth, blood sugar/insulin control, taste and smell. In fact, zinc supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood and adolescence. Immune cells, pancreas, salivary glands and the prostate gland secrete zinc. Dietary sources high in zinc include meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, brewer’s yeast, dairy products, beans and lentils, yeast, nuts, seeds (especially pumpkin seeds) and whole grain cereal.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient that undergoes conversion in the liver and kidneys to form a physiologically active form of vitamin D called calcitriol. Active vitamin D’s most significant role is to increase calcium absorption, which helps form and maintain healthy bones and teeth. Other physiological functions include maintenance of normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. There are two forms of vitamin D: D2 and D3. Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is found in yeast and plants that have been exposed to ultraviolet light. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), however, is found in animal products and is also made in the body when sunlight triggers its synthesis in the skin.
