Instant CalMag-C is a balanced calcium and magnesium supplement with vitamin C that your body can assimilate very rapidly. Unlike pills that can sit in your stomach and not be fully digested or calcium carbonate that cannot be used by the body, Instant CalMag-C has been formulated with the correctly proportioned calcium gluconate and magnesium carbonate in a precise pH balance so that it can be absorbed speedily into your body. The vitamin C is what makes Instant CalMag-C’s pH balance perfect so, your body absorbs it instantly without digestion.
Calcium Gluconate and Not Calcium Carbonate – Why?
Did you know that the hard water containing calcium BIcarbonate (the kind that leaves a calcium deposit in your tea kettle) is the best for drinking? As annoying as it is to have those deposits, you should cheer when you see them because then you know you are getting some sorely needed minerals.
Do not confuse calcium BIcarbonate with calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate is a white, insoluble solid occurring naturally as chalk, limestone, marble, and calcite, and forming mollusk shells and stony corals (basically calcium carbonate is rock) whilst calcium BIcarbonate is completely assimilated and builds your bones by combining with the organic phosphorus (an important mineral) found in grains (not the dead refined stuff nor GMO – genetically modified organisms) and lecithin (an emulsifier) in natural fats.
Calcium and magnesium are essential for more than 300 functions in your body, such as sleep, pain, cramp and muscle spasm alleviation, nervousness, restless leg syndrome, relaxation, alleviating stress, hyperactivity, heart function, blood pressure, blood clotting (especially important during tooth extraction, child birth, operations and so on), etc.
See the list of deficiencies.
Calcium Needs Magnesium: In order for your body to absorb calcium, it needs to be accompanied by its partner, magnesium, in a balanced ratio of two parts calcium to one part magnesium.
Calcium contracts your muscles while magnesium relaxes them and that’s a simple explanation of what these two minerals do.
Calcium and Magnesium Need Vitamin As both calcium and magnesium are alkaline, they need some kind of acid before they can be absorbed. Failing to have this combination can lead to increased deficiencies of calcium and/or magnesium or the calcium depositing in joints (arthritis) or kidneys (stones). You can use apple cider vinegar too but vitamin C is usually a more practical and better-tasting solution.
Why Instant CalMag-C Works Unlike tablets and capsules that sometimes don’t break down properly, Instant CalMag-C has been formulated in a 2:1 blend of calcium gluconate and magnesium carbonate with vitamin C to adjust the pH so your body can actually absorb the calcium and magnesium. This is very important. It is made with boiling water and this is very important as calcium particles are large and the chemical reaction created by dissolving the powder with boiling water breaks them down into absorbable ones.
Calcium Also Needs Vitamins D Most people know that vitamin D is needed to absorb calcium. This is correct but the vitamin D only absorbs it into your bloodstream. What most people don’t know is that, in order to get calcium from your bloodstream into your tissues, you need vitamin F (another name for essential fatty acids). Vitamins D and F need to be in balance with each other so make sure you take a good quality fish (or cod) liver or flax oil in your daily diet. They are very important for good hormonal function too.
We have not added vitamin D or F to Instant CalMag-C as they are both oil soluble vitamins whereas calcium and magnesium are water soluble and it’s not a good idea to mix them.
