This formula is to supply essential minerals for the body with emphasis on calcium and magnesium. It is formulated in such a way as to maximize its absorption and utilization.
Specifically for calcium, magnesium, and zinc, citrate has been shown to optimize the absorption of these specific minerals; prevent the formation of kidney stones; easily ionized; almost completely utilized and degraded; And It has no toxicity
As an added benefit, approximately 95% of citrate, a Krebs cycle intermediate, is utilized for the production of energy with the remainder excreted in the urine.
Although a buffered vitamin C may be better tolerated than ascorbic acid, it can only reduce the absorption of minerals, which generally need a higher acid environment. Studies show no significant difference in vitamin C absorption between buffered and regular vitamin C although blood levels were higher with regular ascorbic acid.
