The Potential Benefits of Taking Calcium
Calcium is one of the most essential minerals in maintaining strong bones and teeth. This can be especially important as we age or for those who are prescribed certain medications that deplete calcium, such as chemotherapy drugs.
Calcium may also:
- Strengthen tooth enamel and reduce dental caries
- Help muscle contraction and relaxation
- Help regulate blood pressure and reduce hypertension by relaxing blood vessels
- Support good cardiovascular health
- Lower cholesterol
Dairy products contain lots of calcium, but that’s not the only way to get it. Two cups of almond milk is enough to get the recommended daily allowance! Beans, tofu, sardines, and dark green vegetables also contain this vital nutrient.
The Potential Benefits of Magnesium
Magnesium is a common mineral in many foods. The potential benefits of magnesium may include:
- Preventing bone loss
- Regulation of blood glucose levels
- Normalizing blood pressure
- Maintaining good muscle function
- Keeping the nerves in our body healthy
- Helping you get restful sleep
- Help reduce anxiety and depression
- Helping reduce the incidents and severity of migraine headaches
- Reducing the risk of diabetes
Like calcium, magnesium can regulate how effectively our muscles function and is crucial for transmitting nerve impulses. When we don’t get enough magnesium in our diets, our muscles can weaken or suffer from spasms or cramps.
Magnesium is readily found in green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, and Swiss chard. You can also get it in your diet through eating mung dahl beans, lentils, peas, soybeans, chickpeas, quinoa, and whole grains. Fatty fish, avocados, and nuts also contain a high percentage of this mineral. Magnesium can even be found in dark chocolate!
The Potential Benefits of Zinc
Zinc is vital for our immune system to function properly. It is essential in the formation of T cells and B cells and the production of cytokines, which are central to our body’s immune system.
Zinc can also help the body with wound healing. It plays a role in the production of collagen. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that supports healthy skin and tissue.
Zinc may also:
- Support reproductive health in men and women
- Support cognitive function
- Improve digestive health
- Possibly reduce the duration and severity of colds
- Protect against macular degeneration
- Regulate the production of hormones such as progesterone, testosterone, and insulin
Meat and eggs contain high amounts of zinc, but so do legumes, seeds, and grains. Fermenting the latter can increase the amount of zinc your body can access. Also, dark chocolate contains a surprising amount!
Our Royal Crest Vitamin D3 Supplements
Medical researchers and scientists are now keenly aware of the symbiotic relationship between calcium and magnesium. Magnesium is necessary for the body to make calcium soluble enough so that the body can assimilate and metabolize it properly.
Recent studies hint that taking these three minerals together may offer more significant benefits than taking them separately. Taken in a combination formula can ensure that these minerals work in harmony.
The recommended daily allowance of these three minerals are:
- Calcium – 1000 mg
- Magnesium – 400 to 500 mg
- Zinc – 15 to 50 mg
A good quality supplement of calcium, magnesium, and zinc will contain chelated versions of these minerals. Chelation is a process that can make them more stable and effective by making it easier for them to be absorbed in the body.
At Sir Jason Winters International, we have an all-in-one source of chelated calcium, magnesium, and zinc with our Royal Crest Cal-Mag-Zinc Complex. Just three tablets taken each day with meals provide all the necessary recommended daily values for these minerals.
