Please note: A dose of Instant CalMag-C is different to other similar brands. Whereas most others call for a heaped teaspoon or a tablespoon of powder, with Instant CalMag-C one slightly rounded teaspoon is a dose and provides 290 mg calcium gluconate and 145 mg magnesium carbonate.
You can take as many per day as your body can tolerate and as needed. Being water soluble, it does not “build up” in your body. You lose it through your urine, stools, sweating and living (exercise, work, junk food, drugs, alcohol, sugar, etc, etc) so you don’t have to worry about overdosing.
Rest assured that stress will chew it up too so use as much as your body can tolerate.
Here are the dosages you can try for various ages:
Babies: Tip of a teaspoon in their water bottle made exactly as you would for adults with a bit of boiling water. You can give them more than one per day, depending on their tolerance. It’s great for helping to prevent the usual teething problems as it coats the nerve endings and helps prevent pain and discomfort. (Calciuim is a natural painkiller.)
Toddlers: 1/4 teaspoon. They too can take more than one per day, depending on needs and personal tolerance.
Young children: 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon: They too can take more than one per day, depending on needs and personal tolerance.
Teens: Can take adult dose. They too can take more than one per day, depending on needs and personal tolerance.
Mixing directions: Place required dose into a cup and add boiling water, stir till dissolved. Add ice blocks, favorite herbal tea (no sugar, please) or just top up with more hot or cold water.
Taste: For children who need to have a different taste, you can add unsweetened fruit juice. Or, you can put into a smoothie – no sugar, please.
Note 1: Sugar or any sweetener will affect the pH negatively so don’t use any.
Note 2: The boiling water is vital for the release of ions needed to break down the calcium particles and to create the correct pH, which improves absorption remarkably.
