The bone in your body is actually a metabolically active matrix of minerals in a framework of cartilage and connective tissue that blood vessels and nerves weave through. New bone is constantly being deposited to replace older bone.
The primary mineral in bone, calcium adds the strength and rigidity bones need to support your body.
According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), around 43% of the US population, including almost 70% of older women, uses dietary supplements with calcium, boosting their intake of the essential mineral by about 330 mg per day.
If we do not get sufficient calcium from our diet to maintain levels in the bloodstream, our bodies draw calcium they require from our bones. The result is decreased bone density and an increased risk of fragility and fractures.
Another essential mineral for skeletal development, magnesium affects the mineral and matrix metabolism in bone.
It does this through a combination of effects on hormones and other factors that regulate skeletal and mineral metabolism, and by direct effects on bone itself.
Almost 50% of the body's magnesium is located in bone.
Even though dietary surveys indicate that many Americans do not consume sufficient amounts of magnesium, the symptoms of magnesium deficiency are rare in the US.
Nonetheless, there are concerns that the many people may not have sufficient body stores of magnesium because their dietary intake may not be high enough.
Magnesium activates the enzyme alkaline phosphatase, which is necessary for increasing bone density.
The third essential mineral, zinc is needed for the synthesis of some amino acids used in the formation of collagen protein, which is the base of bone, onto which calcium is deposited.
A zinc deficiency will seriously impede bone building and bone strength.
Finally, MRM Cal-Mag Zinc Liquid also includes Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and its active metabolite 1,25-(OH)2D3 (calcitrol), well established regulators of bone mineral balance.
