Why take supplemental calcium?
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body
Calcium isn't just necessary for healthy bones.*
Liquid Calcium Magnesium maintains optimum bone health* and calcium may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.††
††Osteoporosis affects middle-aged and older persons. A lifetime of regular exercise and a healthy diet that includes calcium builds and maintains good bone health and may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life. Daily intakes above 2,000 mg are not likely to provide any additional benefit to bone health.
Most diets don't meet the body's need for calcium
Most Americans above the age of 9 don't get the calcium they need through diet alone. Supplementation with a readily absorbable calcium that combines magnesium and vitamin D can help fill the nutritional gaps often seen in the average diet.*

Please explain the rationale for using magnesium oxide as the source of magnesium in Liquid Calcium Magnesium.
Magnesium oxide is one of the most highly concentrated forms of magnesium, containing 60 percent elemental magnesium. Although research suggests that magnesium oxide is not as bioavailable as some other forms of magnesium, it is one of the only magnesium sources that does not negatively affect the flavor characteristics.
Liquid Calcium Magnesium is a once-daily supplement, with a pleasant natural vanilla flavor and smooth mouth feel. Because of this, consumer compliance is high. The formula also has a long history of use by a number of naturopathic physicians and medical doctors.
Can you tell me why the calcium products don't mention that they need to be taken with food? I've heard that food improves absorption.
Calcium absorption varies based on many things, including the form of calcium as well as the presence of food in the digestive tract. While some research suggests that absorption might be a little better with food, it is not necessary to take calcium supplements with food to receive health benefits. If an individual has a sensitive stomach, we do recommend taking supplements with food to lessen the chance for stomach upset.
Why does the Liquid Calcium Magnesium contain vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) rather than vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol)?
Liquid Calcium Magnesium is a dietary supplement which contains a liquid suspension of multiple minerals and vitamin D2 for the support of healthy bone structure.† Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) was chosen because of its vegetarian status and also its superior flavor characteristics. As such, Liquid Calcium Magnesium offers a great tasting vegetarian alternative to other bone support formulas.†
