BUILD STRONG BONES NOW! Strengthen your bones with Salus® Calcium-Magnesium liquid This natural tonic is designed to address the needs of the average person. Calcium deficiency is responsible for more than 150 different degenerative conditions including osteoporosis, which results in weak, fragile bones caused by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue, leading to increased risk of fracturing the hip, spine and wrist. The disease most often occurs after age 50, but loss of bone density actually begins around age 30. That’s why you need to maintain strong bones throughout your life. Adequate calcium and Vitamin D as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life.

Salus® Cal-Mag liquid delivers 98% absorbability When vitamins and minerals are in tablet or capsule form, the ingredients are less bioavailable than in Salus® tonics, because they need to be broken down in the digestive tract. Salus® Calcium-Magnesium tonic is a liquid solution that allows approximately 98% of the elemental calcium and magnesium to be absorbed by the body.

• 3.5 mg of elemental zinc • 204 I.U. of Vitamin D • 1474 mg of compound calcium gluconate & lactate (equivalent to 155 mg of elemental calcium)

• 3106 mg of compound magnesium

gluconate & citrate (equivalent of 186 mg elemental magnesium)

It’s important to note that the compound value is what you consume, but the elemental value is the amount available for utilization by your body.

Why Magnesium? Magnesium competes with calcium for absorption in the body. And that’s a good thing. The combination of magnesium, zinc and Vitamin D ensures that the calcium is absorbed where it’s needed--in the bones. Making sure the calcium is absorbed properly reduces the risk of calcification problems that could lead to painful and debilitating ailments. Magnesium is an extremely important mineral, activating over 300 different biochemical reactions necessary for your body to function properly. Magnesium deficiency may lead to a number of conditions including fatigue, headaches, muscle spasms, anxiety and heart disorders.

All the calcium you need Your food provides you with some calcium (on average, 800 mg per day), so you shouldn’t try to fulfill your daily requirements with only a supplement. Numerous studies have found that when we reach the threshold of consuming approximately 1,000 mg, adding more calcium does not have added benefits.1,2
