    Magnesium heightens the activity of vitamin D3 and in doing so, enhances calcium transportation throughout the body, especially the bones, teeth, and muscles [1-4]. Vitamin D3 is more effective at raising and maintaining optimal levels of vitamin D in the blood than vitamin D2; thusly it is recommended by numerous clinical studies for bone and muscle health [5, 6]. In addition, vitamin D3 is more potent, more stable, and has a longer half-life than vitamin D2 [5, 6]. Vitamin K plays an important role in regulating blood sugar levels, it works together with vitamin D3 to promote the transfer or calcium to bones, and it supports immune system health [8]. Probiotics and digestive enzymes have been clinically proven to enhanced digestive health and boost the absorption of nutrients [10]. Whole fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of bioflavonoids and beta-carotene that promote overall health due to their powerful antioxidant properties [11, 12].

    Magnesium promotes the transfer of calcium into bones by accelerating the activity of vitamin D3 [1]. It also plays a role in the formation of hard tooth enamel that resists acid-induced tooth decay [2]. Without magnesium, calcium cannot be properly transported to the bones and teeth, and would instead begin to accumulate in organs such as the kidneys or liver [1, 2]. In addition, magnesium promotes muscle contraction and relaxation [3]. Low levels of magnesium are associated with electrolyte disorders and may contribute to the development of muscle fatigue, cramps, and spasms [3]. Furthermore, magnesium supports heart health by influencing electrical signals that regulate the heartbeat [4]. In addition, magnesium helps lowers the accumulation of fatty/lipid (plaque) build up in the arteries and it improves blood flow, which supports optimal blood pressure [4]. Vitamin D3 raises the concentration of calcium and phosphorus as theses nutrients work together to facilitate the growth of new bone [5-7]. More specifically, vitamin D3 ensures the body properly transports calcium into the bones where it is used to build layers of strong bone tissue; the absence of adequate calcium levels in the bones causes them to become brittle and prone to fracture [7]. Vitamin K promotes optimal blood sugar regulation, it works with vitamin D3 to support bone health, and it is especially beneficial towards preventing bone mineral density loss [8, 9]. RAW Calcium also contains vitamins (including vitamin D and vitamin K2) and minerals plus live probiotics and enzymes. Calcium uses the MK-7 form of vitamin K2 which lasts longer in the body than the other form of vitamin K2 called MK-4. Probiotics help maintain the optimal balance of good bacteria in the gut [10]. Probiotics also support optimal digestive function by releasing enzymes that help digest food as well as enzymes that target foreign invaders. They also promote the proper breakdown, absorption, and transport of nutrients into the bloodstream [10]. Whole fruits and vegetables contain powerful bioflavonoids and beta-carotene that combat cell damage that is linked to free radicals and they subsequently promote detoxification, which dramatically improves health [11, 12]. Certain fruits and vegetables boost blood and oxygen circulation as well as the transportation of nutrients to vital parts of the body including the bones [11, 12].
