Talking about the need for calcium supplementation Dr. Kevin Gellenbeck, Senior Research Scientist, Nutrilite Health Institute, Amway, said, “Our current lifestyle which includes less exposure to the sun, irregular eating habits, and junk food preference in the daily diet can lead to a shortfall in essential nutrients required by the body. Calcium is one of the key micronutrients that is needed to support important functions in the human body that goes beyond just healthy bones and teeth. While food is the best source, a high-quality dietary supplement can help fill the nutrient gap in our modern diet. Therefore, the Nutrilite Cal Mag D Plus is a valuable addition to our existing portfolio of Nutrilite products as it offers a unique combination of 5 essential nutrients to support bone building and maintenance processes. In our quest to offer the best from nature, we have procured plant-based calcium from an algal source and additional vitamin D to promote calcium absorption, as well as added zinc, manganese and magnesium, making Cal Mag D Plus more effective calcium supplement.”
