Calcium Citrate Malate 1000 mg + Vit D3 200 IU + Zinc 4mg & Magnesium 100 mg
CACIM contains Calcium citrate malate (CCM) 1000 mg which is a water-soluble calcium supplement. It is the calcium salt of citric acid and malic acid with variable composition. It is purported to be highly bioavailable.
Calcium citrate malate’s bio availability stems from its water-solubility and its method of dissolution. When dissolved, it releases calcium ions and a calcium-citrate complex. Calcium ions are absorbed directly into intestinal cells, and the citrate complex enters the body through para cellular absorption.
CCM has been shown to facilitate calcium retention and bone accrual in children and adolescents. In adults, it effectively promotes the consolidation and maintenance of bone mass. In conjunction with vitamin D, CCM also decreases bone fracture risk in the elderly, slows the rate of bone loss in old age, and is of benefit to the health and well-being of postmenopausal women. CCM is exceptional in that it confers many unique benefits that go beyond bone health. Unlike other calcium sources that necessitate supplementation be in conjunction with a meal to ensure an appreciable benefit is derived, CCM can be consumed with or without food and delivers a significant nutritional benefit to individuals of all ages. The chemistry of CCM makes it a particularly beneficial calcium source for individuals with hypochlorydia or achlorydia, which generally includes the elderly and those on medications that decrease gastric acid secretion. CCM is also recognized as a calcium source that does not increase the risk of kidney stones, and in fact it protects against stone-forming potential. The versatile nature of CCM makes it a convenient and practical calcium salt for use in moist foods and beverages.
CACIM contains 200 IU Vitamin D3 which refers to a group of fat-soluble secosteroids responsible for enhancing intestinal absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphate and zinc.
CACIM contains Zinc 4 mg which is an essential mineral that is naturally present in some foods. Zinc is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. It is required for the catalytic activity of approximately 100 enzymes.
CACIM contains 100 mg Magnesium is a co factor in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate diverse biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation. Magnesium is required for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation, and glycolysis. It contributes to the structural development of bone and is required for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and the antioxidant glutathione. Magnesium also plays a role in the active transport of calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes, a process that is important to nerve impulse conduction, muscle contraction, and normal heart rhythm.
