Drinking milk can be a great way to boost your body's Calcium supplies but did you know that without a healthy measure of Magnesium too you could be doing yourself more harm than good? A regular intake of Swanson's new balanced complex means you can safely develop stronger bones and teeth in the long term, worry free.
Since childhood we've all been warned of the risks of not drinking your milk. Our overprotective mothers would enthusiastically tip pints of the stuff down our gullets each day warning that without it we would surely end up with brittle and broken bones. And of course, like all mothers - they were right.
In recent years milk has come under a lot of scrutiny. There are questions over its legitimacy in a human's diet, there are those who choose not to drink it on ethical grounds and there have even been studies into whether or not it does actually make our bones and teeth stronger.
One study suggested that the high levels of acid produced in our urine as a result of drinking milk could damage our bones. Another sought to underline the fact that in countries where dairy consumption was low, hip fractures were high. The arguments have gone back and forth.
The truth is though that Calcium is crucial to bone and teeth growth and strength. It wards off serious illnesses and is also used to clot blood and transmit nerve impulses. In other words - it is vital. Here's the thing you don't hear so often though - high levels of Calcium without requisite balanced levels of Magnesium can be problematic to your health.
Swanson Calcium Citrate plus Magnesium is that balance - carefully compounded to ensure you get just the right amount, every day.
Calcium is as crucial for bone and teeth development as it is for muscle and nerve function too. This seemingly abundant mineral plays an absolutely necessary role in your everyday living.
Magnesium too, is just as important, performing a job in over 300 biomechanical processes in your body at all times. But did you realise that Calcium absorption is one of those jobs.
Why would you have a low magnesium supply? As it turns out, it's surprisingly easy to do. Alcohol, salt and coffee will all deplete your body of its ability to absorb Magnesium.
Swanson Calcium Citrate plus Magnesium allows the two minerals to work alongside each other harmoniously, doing your body nothing but good.
