It is well established that many people's diets are deficient in the two essential bone-making nutrients, calcium and magnesium, and that low calcium intakes can contibute to osteoporosis. The DoH recommends that women should have an intake of up to 1200mg of calcium per day, a level that is hard to achieve through the diet alone, especially if the diet contains little dairy produce.
Magnesium, which is increasingly absent from the food we eat, is known to help in the deposition of calcium in the bones. A dietary intake in the ratio of 2:1 calcium:magnesium is often recommended.
Osteoguard provides calcium and magnesium in a 2:1 ratio, along with boron and the Vitamins D and K, which facilitate the utilisation of calcium. Whilst one tablet a day provides good support for most diets, two tablets daily is particularly preferable for those with ingrediets containing little diary produce or those of menopausal age. Osteoguard is an excellent partner for most multis.
1 to 2 tablets daily.
Over 400mg of magnesium may cause mild stomach upset in sensitive individuals.
