Thorne Research, Cal-Mag Citrate Effervescent Powder 8 oz

SKU: TR-M222

Availability: Out of stock


Quick Overview

    Product Description

    The effervescent quality of citric acid coupled with its high dissociation constant greatly increase the bioavailability of citrate mineral chelates. Cal-Mag Citrate Effervescent Powder provides 500 mg calcium and 200 mg magnesium per scoop. This ratio is especially desirable for individuals who
    need a high dose of calcium but who, because of its laxative nature, cannot tolerate equal amounts of magnesium. One scoop also provides 500 mg of vitamin C and 500 mg of the amino acid glycine.

    Place the desired dosage into a small amount of water and allow it to effervesce. Once it has stopped bubbling, the solution can be consumed or mixed with juice. The resultant calcium and magnesium chelates include citrates, ascorbates, and glycinates.

    The most helpful favorable review

    Thorne Research Cal-Mag Citrate (effervescent powder) is actually quite enjoyable and smooth to take. I prefer it to capsules, take it before bed to soothe inflammation, constipation, and soreness. It also helps me sleep. The citrus flavor is mild and light, and I notice the difference when I run out or forget to take it, for sure. Also, the quickly dissolving powder makes for easy preparation, no waiting.

    • Calcium Magnesium Citrate Powder

      Posted by Cindy on April 26, 2010
      This product was recommend by my naturopath. The powder, when mixed with liquid, is similar to a carbonated-type beverage . . . . it's fizzy! The taste was a little powerful when I first began to use the product, but I quickly got used to it. The product does enter the bloodstream more quickly, especially for an individual such as myself, who has a digestive system that is not as efficient as it should be. Overall, I rate this as a 4 star instead of 5 stars, due to the taste. Otherwise, it's a great product.

    • Great magnesium supplement

      Posted by Michelle on July 26, 2011
      My naturopath recommended this brand of magnesium citrate to help with muscle pain, headaches, and blood sugar control. My husband takes it every night before bed to relieve muscle pain and stiffness from his strenuous workouts. It has a pleasantly tart flavor that we both like, and drinking our magnesium has become part of our nightly ritual.

    • The Best Cal-Mag

      Posted by Patricia on April 26, 2010
      I have tried a number of Cal-Mag powders and Thorne Research Cal-Mag Citrate Effervescent Powder is the best. It is light, without heavy flavors and added sugar. It desolves fast in water and absorbs fast in the body. I get relief within a minute of taking it from muscle cramps.

    • "Like being Born Again, Again".

      Posted by David T. on November 28, 2010
      The Cardiologist had no answer for the A-phib. My Naturopathic Dr. got me started on this simple combination. Being Born Again gives you a new heart. Thanks Dr. McBride. Dave
