Superior Total Calcium Tablets 120

Superior Total Calcium Tablets 120

As we age, the risk of calcium deficiency escalates. Nutrition surveys show that many people, particularly women, eat diets that fail to supply the recommended calcium intake (800mg per day for adults). A good accumulation of calcium in the bones in the early stages of life is the best preventative to age-related bone loss and fractures. Studies show that in post-menopausal women supplemental calcium may help slow bone loss and the rate of reduction may be sufficient to potentially reduce the risk of fracture over time. SANDERSON™ Superior Total Calcium provides 270mg of elemental calcium from two bio-available sources – calcium hydroxyapatite and calcium citrate. The formulation includes vitamin C to aid calcium absorption, and Horsetail herb to provide a natural source of silica, which helps the body to ‘fix’ calcium stores. Nutritional cofactors zinc, boron, manganese and vitamin K are included to aid bone mineralization. Magnesium supports bone density, while vitamin D assists the body’s uptake of calcium. Low dietary levels of Calcium increase the risk of high blood pressure. Severe deficiency can lead to abnormal heartbeat, dementia and convulsions. As we age the risk of deficiency escalates because of decreased absorption due to lowered stomach acidity.

Magnesum FX 120s

Magnesum FX 120s

Magnesium FX 1000 is a high absorption complex of organic magnesium salts and does not contain inorganic magnesium oxide or phosphate, which have poor bioavailability; while magnesium oxide has a high elemental magnesium content, bioavailabilty may be as low as 4%. Magnesium FX 1000 has been formulated to include magnesium citrate, magnesium aspartate, magnesium orotate and magnesium amino acid chelate. Research has shown these organic forms are much better absorbed and are better utilized than inorganic forms. This formulation also contains vitamin B6, vitamin D and selenium as co-factors involved in the optimal absorption and utilization of magnesium. SANDERSON™ Magnesium FX 1000 may be useful for healthy heart function; muscle relaxation; sleep and relaxation; nervous system balance; PMS associated with cramps and changes in mood; anxiety, mood and irritability. Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and is essential to good health. Around 50% of total body magnesium is present in bone; the other half is found mostly inside cells of body tissues and organs. Just 1% of magnesium is found in blood, but the body works very hard to keep blood levels of magnesium stable. Over 300 biochemical reactions in the body require magnesium. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. It is well known that some forms of minerals or other substances can be absorbed better by the body than others. The most commonly used form of magnesium in supplements is inorganic magnesium oxide (MgO), because it is cheap and because it has a high (up to 60%) elemental magnesium content. However, the availability of the magnesium in MgO has been assessed at only around 4-5%. So a tablet boasting 500mg MgO may only provide around 15mg magnesium. Compare this is with the availability of Magnesium Aspartate at around 42%, Magnesium Citrate at 25%, Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate at 25% or Magnesium Orotate at 20% for example. Organic forms of magnesium are generally better tolerated and better absorbed by the body.

Magnesium FX 1000 may be useful to support healthy heart function; muscle relaxation; sleep and relaxation; nervous system balance; PMT associated with cramps and changes in mood; anxiety, mood & irritability. Supplementation with magnesium may also provide support to sufferers of migraine headaches.   Contraindications: Taking too much magnesium may lead to diarrhea. More serious problems can develop with excessive magnesium intake from magnesium-containing laxatives. However, the amounts of magnesium found in nutritional supplements are unlikely to cause such problems. People with kidney disease should not take magnesium supplements without consulting a doctor. Magnesium has a range of beneficial and adverse interactions with various medications so if you are taking a medication you should check with your health professional before taking it.   EACH TABLET CONTAINS: Ingredient Mg per tablet Equivalent Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate 400mg 80mg elemental Mg Magnesium Aspartate 66.76mg 5mg elemental Mg Magnesium Citrate 451.61mg 70mg elemental Mg Magnesium Orotate 76.92mg 5mg elemental Mg Pyridoxine HCL 5mg...

Superior Organic Iron Tablets

Superior Organic Iron Tablets

Superior Organic Iron. Iron is a mineral that is vital to both physical and mental wellbeing, yet it is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies. Iron is found in every cell of the body and forms a key component of haemoglobin, which transports oxygen around the body. Iron is responsible for the excretion of carbon dioxide and supports the body against infection. Adolescent females are at risk of iron deficiency owing to increased iron losses at menstruation and poor dietary habits. Pregnancy places great demands on iron stores, as do a strict vegetarian diet and frequent aerobic exercise. A daily SANDERSON™ Superior Organic Iron will support healthy iron stores and maintain energy levels. KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS: Symptoms such as fatigue, frequent infections, poor stamina, reduced athletic performance and learning difficulties in children may be signs of Iron deficiency. SANDERSON® Superior Organic Iron is indicated in these instances. SANDERSON™ Superior Organic Iron has a low risk of gastric upset or constipation as the form of iron used, ferrous fumerate, is more easily absorbed. Iron-rich superfood Pumpkin Seed is also included. Ferrous Fumarate does not act as a Vitamin E antagonist. Vitamin C is added to assist absorption of the iron; Vitamins B6 and B12 are included to support the formation of healthy red blood cells. A maintainance dose of Folic acid is included to support pre-conception requirements for this nutrient, and to further assist iron absorption.   Contraindications: Avoid taking iron supplements with milk or other calcium rich products as calcium reduces absorption of iron. Iron may interact with several drugs, resulting in decreased absorption of both iron and the drug.  Ask your doctor for advice. Available in a 100 tablet pack. EACH TABLET CONTAINS: Ferrous Fumerate (providing Iron 24mg) 73mg Vitamin C 30mg Folic Acid 100mcg Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) 3mg Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin) 2mcg Pumpkin Seed (Cucurbita Pepo)...
