‘FLU, PAINKILLER: “I am an Orthodontist practicing in Pretoria, South Africa for many decades. I have been prescribing CalMag -C to my patients instead of giving them pain killers after banding/bonding for the past about 18 years. ……… 

My staff has so much faith in this product that they always take it as a first line of defense if they are not feeling well or are aware of a cold/flu on a sub-clinical level.

As for myself…if the temper gets a bit short, I know I haven’t taken my regular dose of CalMag-C and I would often find a glass of the potion has quietly appeared on my desk while some staff members exchange glances of satisfaction when they realise that I have swallowed the “magic water!”  Dr Piet B, South Africa

Hard Water and Calcium BI-carbonate

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.

It is this calcium bicarbonate that is essential in the bloodstream to prevent children from becoming susceptible to polio, colds and the diseases of childhood which produce fevers.

In fact, calcium bicarbonate deficiency alone can cause a child to have a recurrent fever that disappears at once when they’re given calcium lactate or calcium gluconate (both of which form calcium bicarbonate after absorption).

Calcium deficiency fevers are common in children during the ages of rapid bone growth, especially if they’re getting too much cereal foods like processed dry cereals, without enough hard water calcium. The phosphorus is out of proportion to the calcium bicarbonate intake. Phosphorus, an important mineral, needs to be kept in balance with calcium.

I raised my kids on calmag, literally from the day they were born. None of them had colds, ‘flu, teething problems or ongoing upsets because they were getting their daily intake of calmag.

Calcium, along with its balancing partner magnesium, is perfect for any teething baby too. These two minerals coat the nerves, alleviate the pain and improve their immune function, which results in a much happier baby – and family.

ASTHMA, ‘FLU:I’m a mother of two beautiful twin girls. They are both 6-years-old. Last year my first daughter was suffering from ‘flu. When I took her to the doctor they told me that she had asthma. She was put onto a whole range of medication. One day I explained to your representative that my child is not getting better. In fact, she is getting worse and very fast. She recommended Whey Protein, Combovite Powder (multi-vitamin formula) which the twins love and CalMag-C. My kids started to use the products in November and haven’t had any ‘flu since then! The asthma has disappeared!” AM, Pietersburg
