Global mineral expert introduces unique calcium and magnesium blend for products supporting optimal bone health.
(HAIFA BAY, ISRAEL) Jan. 18, 2022 –- Addressing the growing bone health-support market, Gadot Biochemical Industries (GBI) has introduced an effective mineral blend, “Cal2Mag,” a combination of calcium citrate and magnesium citrate in the scientifically shown effective ratio that provides long-term bone support.
Ohad Cohen, chief executive officer of GBI, explained that the increasing number of studies showing that calcium ingestion by itself can increase arterial calcification (stiffness), and thus the need for corresponding magnesium has become more critical. “Without magnesium, calcium supplements can cause a negative effect of vascular calcification, depositing itself on the aortic wall, kidneys, arteries and cartilage rather than in bones where it has the greatest benefit. Balancing calcium with the right amount of magnesium is good for potentially mitigating those harmful issues.”
But, Cohen warned, while there are numerous calcium and magnesium mineral sources, formulators need to ensure they will be using the right forms. Citrates are preferred as they are absorbed independent of food consumption, have a high mineral concentration, neutral flavor, low interference with other minerals, and are highly compatible with other nutrients.
GBI’s Cal2Mag is a highly bioavailable composition of both calcium and magnesium citrates, in an optimal ratio. One Cal2Mag gram equals 100 mg calcium citrate and 50 mg magnesium citrate, amounting to 10% of the DV of calcium and 14% of the DV for magnesium.
GBI’s Cal2Mag is made with a unique granulation process with added binder, enabling tablet manufacturers to achieve four desirable results. It prevents segregation of the power mixture constituents, improve flow properties of the mixture, as well as improving compaction characteristics of the mix and eliminates excessive amounts of dust particles
