Calcium is one of the essential minerals needed for the body, especially for bone health. Calcium needs to be ingested in the form of calcium-rich foods and additional supplements, especially by women, who tend to lose their bone weight as they age and many of them post menopause suffer from osteoporosis and other bone health-related disorders. Children too need calcium from food sources and other supplements to derive the required calcium for their growth and development of bone health. Thus, an external source of calcium is essential, since food sources usually do not suffice or are not eaten in desired quantities, if eaten at all.
Shaklee Chewable Cal Mag Plus is a dietary supplement that replenishes the body’s supply of calcium and magnesium to build stronger bones. As we age, the bones tend to lose an excessive amount of essential minerals content and proteins, especially calcium. This makes the bones brittle and very likely to break and result in a fracture. This is especially true in the case of women, who are five times more likely to face calcium deficiency and suffer from osteoporosis as compared to men. The Shaklee tablets provide the body with approximately 1000 mg of essential calcium and magnesium too. This helps peak the desired bone mass along with building bones, maintaining the requisite bone density, and slowing down the process of breakdown of the bones. All of this together reduces the chances of developing osteoporosis later in life. The supplements are also rich in Vitamin D which is vital for maintaining bone health and improving immunity as well as heart health.
A jar of Shaklee chewable cal and Mag contains 120 tablets recommended for 30 servings. This bottle costs approximately $25 and weighs about 6.4 ounces.
Directions and Taste
The chewable tablets have a delectable berry flavour which gives it a pleasant taste along with its ease of chewing. The recommended dosage is four tablets in a day for adults and two tablets daily for children aged 4 to 12 years and ideally to be had along with meals. Daily dosage greater than 2000 mg is not advised as it does not have any additional nutritional benefits.
Since milk alone does not suffice to provide the required content of calcium these chewables provide the desired mineral along with added benefits of magnesium and vitamin D 600 too which is equally essential for bone health. The easy to chew tablets are devoid of vitamin K and pleasant to chew too.
