G. Why doesn't EZorb Calcium contain Vitamin D or magnesium?
Very little of traditional calcium supplements can be absorbed in the pH medium of the small intestine. With the help of Vitamin D, their absorption rate increases slightly.
Traditional calcium supplements also suppress the body's ability to absorb magnesium. In the pH environment of the small intestine, inorganic minerals tend to attach themselves to one another and to precipitate magma, which renders the minerals impossible to absorb. Therefore, inorganic calcium supplements dramatically reduce magnesium absorption, necessitating the use of magnesium supplements for those taking inorganic calcium.
EZorb Calcium, on the other hand, does not need participation of Vitamin D for better absorption. Calcium aspartate anhydrous (CalAA) is absorbed in its molecular form therefore does not need Vitamin D as a carrier to help penetrate the mucous membrane.
CalAA doesn't interact with other compounds, thanks to its strong molecular structure. Therefore, EZorb does not affect magnesium absorption.
