Provides A Boost Of Calcium, Magnesium, And D3 For Trying-To-Conceive, Pregnant, And Nursing Women
Support Bone Strength Before, During, and After Pregnancy*
Calcium is well-known for its importance in maintaining and promoting bone health, but calcium is not able to do its job without the help of magnesium and vitamin D:
- magnesium helps transport calcium into the bones
- vitamin D enhances the absorption of calcium
Adequate dietary intake of each of these three nutrients is important for women of all ages and life stages to maintain strong bones and healthy teeth. Optimal intake of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D3 is even more vital during pregnancy and lactation, when a woman’s own nutrient stores are constantly tapped to ensure her growing child is properly nourished.
How Calcium Contributes
Calcium is one particular mineral worth focusing on during pregnancy as it can play a key role in your health, your baby’s health, and your ability to carry to full term. Everyone knows calcium builds teeth and bones but some of the lesser known roles are that it keeps your blood and muscles optimized, helps your nerves send messages from your brain to the rest of your body, and, importantly for pregnant women, plays a role in hypertension disorders such as preeclampsia that often develop during pregnancy.
Your body can store calcium but cannot make it, so calcium must come through supplements or diet. When you are pregnant, your body will do everything necessary to nourish your fetus, which includes draining your bones and teeth of their calcium supply if necessary. It’s especially important for the sake of your own health to ensure you’ve got enough calcium on board for two!
Why Magnesium Matters
If there is a Jack-of-All-Trades mineral in the body, magnesium might be the one. More than 300 processes in the body rely on magnesium being present including muscle and nerve function, insulin control, and blood pressure regulation. Magnesium is required for energy production, contributes to bone and teeth development, and is required for the production of glutathione, often referred to as the body’s master antioxidant. Magnesium also helps relax and soothe muscles.
What D3 Does
Between 40-60% of the general U.S. population is deficient in Vitamin D, and pregnant women are no exception. Vitamin D has been studied extensively and found to have a key role in immune function, pregnancy wellness, healthy cell division, and bone health.
The Synergy of the Three
Sometimes a combination equals more than the sum of the individuals and this is most definitely the case with Calcium, Magnesium, and D. Calcium is not able to do its job without the help of magnesium and vitamin D – magnesium helps transport calcium into the bones and vitamin D enhances the absorption of calcium. PeaPod Cal-Mag was carefully designed to ensure efficient absorption of both calcium and magnesium. PeaPod Cal-Mag contains not only calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide (two commonly used forms of calcium and magnesium in dietary supplements), but also contains calcium citrate and magnesium citrate. Because calcium and magnesium are best absorbed in an acidic environment, the citrate (an acid) forms of these minerals can enhance absorption, especially in people with low stomach acid production.
Adequate dietary intake of each of these three nutrients is important for women of all ages and life stages, but even more vital during pregnancy and lactation, when a woman’s own nutrient stores are constantly tapped to ensure her growing child is properly nourished. Making sure you have enough of these nutrients on board for both you and your baby is critical for a healthy pregnancy.
