Calcium and Magnesium are two essential minerals for the correct functioning of enzymatic reactions both in muscles and other body tissues.

Calcium contributes to the normal function of skeletal muscle and has a role in contraction processes (crucial for activities such as lifting). It also acts at bone-level, with a structural role in the maintenance of bones and teeth.

People intolerant to lactose are at risk of developing calcium deficiencies, being perfect candidates for the supplementation with this mineral.
Magnesium, on the other hand, is involved in the majority of cellular functions and the metabolism of food, being its deficiency a very important health problem with direct implications on skeletal muscle and heart health.

The practice of different sport activities causes a loss of magnesium that we need to recovery either through diet or supplementation.

Both minerals work directly or indirectly in the synthesis of proteins and energy metabolism, so, presenting adequateamounts of these is essential to maximize our athletic performance.

Athletes deficiencies

Calcium and magnesium are important to a wide variety of body functions, such as mineralization of bones, serving as cofactors to many enzyme systems or sustaining muscle and nerve excitation.

Many female athletes consume less calcium than the recommended dietary allowance (RDA). This is of concern because of the need to achieve peak bone mass during adolescence and the possible relationship of poor calcium intake to stress fractures.

Athletes appear to have adequate magnesium status. However, those athletes who are on calorie-restricted diets may not be ingesting sufficient quantities of magnesium.

Data have suggested that magnesium status is indirectly related to strength improvement as well as the incidence of muscle cramps.

To maintain optimal status of these minerals, it is recommended that nutrient rich foods and supplements be ingested including dairy products and foods high in them.


1. Provides the recommended daily dietary allowance (RDA) for calcium and Magnesium

2. Contributes to muscle and bones metabolism

3. Improves cell functions


  • Any person who wants to meet their daily calcium and magnesium needs.

  • Athletes who wish to improve their performance and minimize the risk of muscle injuries.

  • Athletes seeking to maintains a good bone health.

  • Adults with risk of developing osteoporosis.
