Ensure Adequate Calcium Intake Before, During and After Pregnancy
PregnancyPlus Cal-Mag provides the essential nutrients needed to promote and maintain bone health: calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D. These three nutrients work together to make sure that the calcium you take in gets absorbed efficiently and carried into your bones where it is needed. As a result, sufficient intake of all of these nutrients is important throughout your life, but especially vital during pregnancy and lactation when your nutrient stores are constantly tapped to ensure your child is properly nourished.

Doctor-formulated to Help Support Bone Health
Formulated by leading OB/GYN, Amos Grunebaum, PregnancyPlus Cal-Mag provides 50% of the Daily Value of both calcium and magnesium, along with vitamin D, to help ensure that your total dietary intake of these key nutrients is sufficient to maintain bone health before and during pregnancy, and during lactation. Calcium is well-known for its importance in maintaining and promoting bone health, but calcium is not able to do its job without the help of magnesium and vitamin D: magnesium helps transport calcium into the bones and vitamin D enhances the absorption of calcium. As a result, adequate dietary intake of each of these three nutrients is important for women of all ages and life stages, to maintain strong bones and healthy teeth and to support the colon, heart, muscle, nerves, and the immune system.
PregnancyPlus Cal-Mag combines two different forms of both calcium and magnesium to ensure efficient absorption of these minerals. While this product contains calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide (two commonly used forms of calcium and magnesium in dietary supplements), PregnancyPlus Cal-Mag also contains calcium citrate and magnesium citrate. Because calcium and magnesium are best absorbed in an acidic environment, the citrate (an acid) forms of these minerals can enhance absorption, especially in people with low stomach acid production.
