Calcium Citrate Caps Plus Magnesium by TwinLab go to work quickly in the stomach. Calcium and Magnesium tablets, on the other hand, need binders to hold them together.

Calcium: What is it?
Calcium, is the most abundant mineral in the human body, it has several important functions. More than 99% of total body calcium is stored in the bones and teeth where it functions to support our bodies structure. The remaining 1% is found throughout the body in blood, muscle, and the fluid between cells. Calcium is needed for muscle contraction, blood vessel contraction and expansion, the secretion of hormones and enzymes, and sending messages through the nervous system. Calcium is vital for our bodies to function effectively.
When calcium intake is low or calcium is poorly absorbed, bone breakdown occurs because the body must use the calcium stored in bones to maintain normal biological functions such as nerve and muscle function. Bone loss also occurs as a part of the aging process. A prime example is the loss of bone mass observed in post-menopausal women because of decreased amounts of the hormone estrogen.
Calcium and bone health
Your bones are living tissues and continue to change throughout life bones continue to add more mass until around age 30, when peak bone mass is reached. Therefore, it is particularly important to consume adequate calcium and vitamin D supplements. It is also important to engage in weight-bearing exercises to maximize bone strength and bone density to help prevent osteoporosis later in life. Weight bearing exercise is the type of exercise that causes your bones and muscles to work against gravity while they bear your weight. Resistance exercises such as weight training are also important because they help to improve muscle mass and bone strength.
