Schiff Super Calcium-Magnesium Softgels contain key bone-building nutrients to help maintain strong bones. Adequate calcium and Vitamin D are important factors that may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life. Magnesium helps the body utilize calcium and is necessary for production of cellular energy. When taken as directed, this fast-dissolving supplement can help keep bones healthy and strong and improve overall health.
Calcium for Strong Bones and Teeth
Adequate calcium and Vitamin D intake throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Schiff Super Calcium-Magnesium softgels contain 1200 milligrams of calcium combined with 400 milligrams of magnesium, 800 IU of Vitamin D, and 3 milligrams of boron that help with calcium metabolism.
In addition to its bone-strengthing benefits, calcium is vital for building strong teeth, aiding muscle function, and the release of hormones and enzymes, along with assisting nerves in transmitting impulses.
Magnesium to Improve Calcium Absorption
Magnesium is a mineral that is needed for more than 100 enzymatic reactions in the body, including those for nerve and muscle function, regulation of body temperature, energy metabolism, and DNA and RNA synthesis. Along with aiding the absortion of calcium, magnesium also plays an important roles in cardiovascular health, mood, maintenance of bone mass, and the health of all tissues.
Quick-Dissolve Formula for Better Absorption
This supplement has Schiff's Sure Dissolve formula, which means it's made to disintegrate in the body within one hour for improved absorption and less waste.

From reading other peoples’ commentaries, it seems that people take calcium for many different reasons, and have different reactions to the calcium they take. In general, the body will not absorb more than 500 mg of calcium in one dose. So, when taking doses of calcium, it is well to split it into several doses per day, taken with food. Most adults only require 1000 mg of calcium per day, but aging women need at least 1200 mg of calcium per day. Magnesium is dosed at about one half the number of milligrams of calcium that you take. So if you take 500 mg of calcium, it should be accompanied by vitamin D as well as 250 mg of magnesium. Vitamin K and the other micronutrients are well to have combined with your calcium supplement if you are taking it for bone health.Read more ›
Finally, I thought it must be the Gel Capsule that makes the difference, not whether it was Coral or Calcium Citrate, and I tried this brand, which is delivered in a Gel Capsule. Well, lo and behold, I haven't had any IBS symptoms since taking it. It is 1/3 the price of Coral Calcium, and it does what I need it to.
On the other hand, my wife who is pregnant felt relief from her muscle cramps which were not responding to increased potassium intake(magnesium is required to utilize potassium) and she say's that these pills did the trick.
UPDATE 3/12/10: As it turns out, Boron, which is an ingredient in these pills, decreases losses of magnesium by an unknown mechanism. So she is probably not absorbing the Magnesium oxide, but the boron made her lose less magnesium to the point that what she was getting from her diet became adequate.
I was super happy to see this supplement that included the three vitamins I really wanted to incorporate into my diet! The calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D all work together to make my bones the healthiest they can be. I really appreciate that these are liquid capsules as well, because I understand that is absorbed into your body better than hard capsules.
Keep in mind, these are VERY big pills, so if you have a hard time swallowing pills, this is probably not the supplement for you.
