Cal-Mag Plus is advertised as a potent source of Calcium and Magnesium designed to assist with the health of the skeletal system. The manufacturing company Goldshield Elite claims the product contains five bone-building Calcium sources. Additionally, Magnesium is added for better absorption of calcium, as well as Boron, a trace mineral which helps reduce Calcium excretion. This way, the manufacturer claims an optimum ratio of Calcium and absorption rate are achieved. Goldshield Elite is an American company which is composed of 3 different companies. The oldest has began its activity roughly 150 years ago. The company sells various home and health care products for the needs of the entire family. Goldshield elite distributes its products through a network of members/distributors in Canada, United States and United Kingdom.
Cal-Mag Plus is designed for anyone who wishes to have strong, healthy bones and teeth. Additional benefits include support for the cardiovascular system, nerve relaxation, digestion support, relief of muscle pain, and maintenance of heart health. Children in their growth period should discuss using the formula with a healthcare professional.
Cal-Mag Plus Ingredients

Cal-Mag Plus is based on combination of Vitamin D, Calcium and Magnesium. Calcium is one of the most important elements of bone structure, this is why when diet falls short supplements are a good solution. However its benefits extend to heart muscles, nervous system communication and blood clotting function. Vitamin D helps Calcium be absorbed by the body. Calcium depletion is the main cause for osteoporosis, one of the most damaging and frequent bone diseases. Calcium supplements cause few, if any, side effects, including gas, constipation and bloating.
One of Magnesium’s most important functions is supporting Calcium absorption. This is why research evidence indicates it may have substantial contribution to preventing osteoporosis. Low levels of Magnesium can fasten installation of Parkinson’s disease, ADHD, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss, and depression. Insomnia, hypertension, migraines, constipation and heart attacks may be prevented if Magnesium is supplied in the right amounts.
The suggested daily intake is 2 tablets. There are no side effects or special precautions mentioned by the manufacturer.

Nutrition is an essential part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Due to pollution and a number of other environmental factors, most foods are not able to supply the same amounts of nutrients they did several centuries ago (if not even decades). It hence makes sense to supplement these essential nutrients with dietary formulations, so as to prevent depletion and consequently disease. Cal-Mag Plus offers essential minerals (calcium and Magnesium), two of the most important minerals for the body. Magnesium is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions taking place in the body. The formula has not received any consumer reviews; however, this is a rather generic product and should work just as well as most other calcium-magnesium combinations. Before taking any dietary supplement, please consult a healthcare specialist.
