Calcium is one of the most popular dietary supplements on the market, and for good reason. The body can’t absorb nutrients from conventional dairy. Homogenization and pasteurization zap the enzymes that help the body utilize vitamins and minerals, leaving nothing but empty calories. This unabsorbed calcium can cause build-up in arteries and actually cause the arteries themselves to stiffen and harden up. Excessive calcium can also cause kidney stones and affect the absorption of iron, magnesium and zinc.
These recent findings have caused most doctors to advise against calcium supplements, and in most cases, they’re right. Most companies use synthetic calcium that the body doesn’t recognize and cannot absorb. However, with the prevalence of osteoporosis and bone loss in America—to the point that by 2020 half of Americans over 50 years old will suffer from bone disorders—it’s clear we’re not eating enough calcium from plant-based or animal sources to meet our needs.
What’s more, we need more than just calcium for sufficient bone health.
The fourth most abundant mineral in the body, magnesium is required for bone density. Over 50% of the magnesium in the human body is found in the bones, and with over two-thirds of the American population deficient in this essential mineral, it’s no surprise bone loss has been on the rise.

Vitamin D—fondly called the sunshine vitamin—is another requisite for a healthy skeletal system. It’s vital for calcium absorption, as well as many other processes in the body. Over half of Americans are deficient, which can lead to the development of several chronic health issues, including breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, and more.
Vitamin D helps:
- Boost metabolism
- Increase health & longevity

In September 2013, I had bone spurs on my heels. I came to see Jim and he recommended Cal-Mag in combination with vitamin K. Within three weeks I felt better. In six weeks the spurs were gone.
I had back issues which were making working out or sitting for any period of time extremely miserable. I began taking Cal-Mag and saw tremendous improvement! So much so that my gym workouts are some of my personal best! Thanks so much for giving me my active lifestyle back. I'm 57 and going strong thanks to Nature's Finest Nutrition!
