GHC Calcium and Magnesium (formerly called Intracal) - 120 capsules (new label, new capsule count, new serving size)
Calcium and Magnesium (Intracal) by GHC is a superior quality calcium and magnesium supplement made with calcium orotate and magnesium orotate for maximum absorption. It is estimated that only about 9% of calcium is absorbed from traditional calcium supplements. Calcium and Magnesium (Intracal) effectively penetrates cell membranes to deliver calcium and magnesium where it is needed most.
The Health Benefits of GHC Calcium and Magnesium (Intracal)
Based on the Research of Dr. Hans Nieper
Dr. Hans Nieper, a physician and experimenter, believed minerals in an orotate form pass through cell membranes easily without breaking apart and reach the areas where it's needed most. The unique molecular structure of calcium orotate is able to penetrate bones, cartilage, and other tissue to act as a superior mineral transporter.
Dr. Hans Nieper's explanations rely heavily on a theory called "fixed pore mechanism," which suggests attaching a carrier molecule, Orotic Acid (B-13), to the compound being transported. This research has inspired the creation of mineral chelates called orotic acid chelates (or orotates) which offer a 20-fold increase in mineral utilization.
Dr. Nieper often combined magnesium orotate with calcium orotate to achieve optimal effect. "Magnesium orotate acts as a "transporter" to help push calcium more efficiently through your cells so it can reach bones, brain, and the cardiovascular system. Magnesium promotes the proper absorption of calcium by your bones and is vitally important for a healthy cardiovascular system." - Global Healing Center
