Magnical-D provides an exclusive blend of vitamins and minerals that are necessary for the body to absorb calcium,
facilitating its use in bones, cells, and the heart.
What does it do?
In order for the body to properly use calcium, several other elements must be present, including vitamin D3, magnesium and vitamin K2. Vitamin D3 is critical for calcium absorption, while magnesium helps to regulate calcium transport and plays an important role in mineralization bone. Vitamin K2, derived from traditional Japanese natto, is key to unlocking the door that sends nutrients from your blood to your bones. All of these important elements, and more, are packed inside Magnical-D to make sure that your body can effectively use the calcium you take.
Why do we list Magnesium Oxide as one of the ingredients in Magnical-D if it’s poorly absorbed?
In the EU, allowed sources of minerals are limited. Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate, our preferred source due to its bioavailability and absorption, is not currently allowed. When introducing the Magnical-D product to the European market, we were insistent that the US version be used, and our regulatory team found a way to allow this to happen.
You see, this chelate is produced by complexing or chelating Magnesium Oxide (which on its own is not very bioavailable at all) with an amino acid, in this case from rice protein. By listing the two starting materials for Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate separately on the label, the product technically meets the regulatory requirements and can legally be placed on the market.
We can assure you that the EU version of Magnical-D is exactly the same as the US version, and is equally as potent, bioavailable and efficacious. It is often disappointing to see how innovation outpaces regulation, but we are committed to working within those regulatory boundaries, and pleased that our regulatory team found a way to get an amazing product onto the market in Europe, which normally would have required a formulation change.
Why isn’t there more calcium in the Magnical-D?
A study released in the June 2012 issue of the journal Heart, concluded that taking too much calcium, taking calcium supplements alone or taking calcium supplements that were not balanced with other important nutrients, could result in an adverse health condition. These researchers demonstrated that some of the calcium was not being deposited into your bones, but instead was being deposited into your arteries. Unfortunately, however, 80 percent of adults and 40 percent of children are still deficient in calcium, which is an essential nutrient for our health.
So, how can you supplement calcium safely? Cutting-edge research done by the medical and scientific staff at ARIIX has shown that calcium needs to be supplemented with magnesium at a 1:1 ratio. Since the average person is receiving around 700 to 800 mg of calcium from their diet, supplementing with 400 to 600 mg of calcium, balanced with magnesium is more than adequate for the average individual. It is also critical that the calcium and magnesium in your supplement is highly absorbable. Therefore, you need to avoid calcium and magnesium supplements that contain the poorly absorbed calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide. Magnical-D also contains 2,000 IU of vitamin D3, which is important to begin absorbing calcium. Magnical-D also contains vitamin K2 that allows the calcium to be deposited into the bone and blocks it from being deposited into your arteries. Unfortunately, vitamin K1 does not accomplish this key goal.
Why do I have loose stools when I take Magnical-D?
Most individuals who supplement using Magnical-D will not notice any change in their bowel habits; however, calcium tends to cause constipation and magnesium tends to cause loose stools. Magnesium works by improving the contractility of muscles including the muscles within the GI tract. Magnical-D does not contain magnesium oxide, which is known to cause significant diarrhea due to poor absorption. If you are experiencing some loose stools after starting Magnical-D, our research has shown that this will usually settle down within a week or two. If loose stools persist, please see a doctor.
Why are reishi and shiitake mushrooms in Magnical-D?
Clinical studies have shown that the essential nutrients in both reishi and shiitake mushrooms have a wide variety of health benefits. We have chosen to add them to Magnical-D because the shiitake mushroom has a high content of both copper and zinc, which is critical for bone growth and maintaining healthy bone. While the reishi mushrooms are key for maintaining bone density and also have natural anti-inflammatory properties to help with joint health.
My calcium and magnesium supplement contains Vitamin K1, is this okay?
Vitamin K2 is the key nutrient you want in your calcium/magnesium supplement and not vitamin K1. Vitamin K2 has the unique property of actually attracting the calcium you consume via your diet and supplements and making sure that it is deposited in your bones. It also has the ability to actually block the deposit of calcium into your arteries, which is the primary health concern when consuming calcium supplements alone or not balanced with highly absorbable magnesium.
What is the dosage for Magnical-D?
The recommended dosage for Magnical-D is 2 capsules, twice daily
What are the key ingredients in Magnical-D?
Vitamin C is important for healthy gums and strong bones, and is essential to the formulation of collagen, the foundation upon which bone mineralization is built. Studies have also associated greater bone density with increased levels of vitamin C.*
Reishi and Shiitake Mushrooms
Clinical studies have shown that the essential nutrients in both reishi and shiitake mushrooms have a wide variety of health benefits. We’ve chosen to add them to Magnical-D because the shiitake mushroom has a high content of both copper and zinc, which are both critical for bone growth and maintaining healthy bones. Reishi mushrooms are key for maintaining bone density and also have a natural anti-inflammatory properties to help with joint health.*
Shiitake mushroom extract has been used by traditional Chinese and Japanese herbalists for thousands of years because of their unique immune-supporting properties.*
Acerola cherries have more vitamin C than an orange and support essential immune functions and cardiovascular health, all while helping to keep bones and teeth healthy.*
