Calcium & Magnesium (Cal-Mag) for both Mother and Baby
Pregnancy Plus Cal-Mag chewable, chocolate-flavored tablets were developed by an ObGyn, Dr. Amos Grunebaum, specifically for pregnant or trying-to-conceive women and nursing mothers. Calcium and magnesium are essential nutrients before and during pregnancy and neither a healthy diet nor prenatal vitamin supplements provide the right amount for the demands of mother and the baby's development.
Adequate levels of calcium are critical during pregnancy for the growth and development of strong bones muscles and teeth and a healthy heart. Calcium is important for the health of the mother as well - women with low calcium intake during pregnancy lose bone mass and increase their risk of osteoporosis.
Magnesium regulates insulin and blood-sugar level and helps certain enzymes function properly; it is also significant in the healthy development of bones and teeth. Magnesium deficiency during pregnancy has been linked to premature labor and birth, which can lead to health risks, including neurological conditions and cerebral palsy, of the newborn baby. Magnesium supplementation has also been shown to decrease pregnancy-related leg cramps.
Calcium and magnesium taken together increase the absorption and utilization of the other. Magnesium is pivotal in the body's efficient intake of calcium; the two minerals should ideally be taken together.
