The effervescent quality of citric acid can increase the absorption of citrate mineral chelates.* Cal-Mag Citrate Effervescent Powder provides 500 mg of calcium and 200 mg of magnesium per scoop. This ratio is especially desirable for individuals who need higher amounts of calcium but who, because of magnesium's laxative-like trait, cannot tolerate an equal amount of magnesium.* One scoop of Cal-Mag Citrate Effervescent Powder also provides 500 mg of vitamin C and 500 mg of the amino acid glycine.
The desired amount of powder should be placed in a glass containing a small amount of water and allowed to effervesce. When it has stopped bubbling, the solution can be consumed directly or it can be further mixed with a fruit juice. The resultant calcium and magnesium chelates include citrates, ascorbates, and glycinates.
Add 1 heaping (5.4 g) scoop to 8 ounces of water one to two times daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.
