    Thorne Reaserch has very high level of standards in producing their supplements as they actually quarantine incoming ingredients in their South Carolina facility until they are throughly tested and verified. Their examination involves testing raw materials for 760 substances that determine whether they pass. This is truly a great practice which ensures purity. They also pride themselves on sourcing innovative, clinically researched ingredients. In manufacturing their supplements, they will not use any unnecessary filler ingredients which makes their supplements healthy. Their motto is "good enough isn't good enough." Thorne hires top level medical professionals, engineers, and researchers and tasks them with producing nutritional supplements that exceed expectations. With four rounds of quality testing, Thorne is truly considered a leader in quality.

    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]. Low levels of magnesium are also linked to electrolyte disorders [4-6]. Calcium plays a role in muscle movement and well as the circulation of fluid [6, 7]. Based on peer reviewed studies and science, it is recommended to maintain calcium intake from 500-1000 mg day for older individuals at risk of osteoporosis, but there seems to be little need for calcium supplements except in individuals with major malabsorption problems or substantial abnormalities of calcium metabolism. Therefore, it is important to consult with a doctor before taking calcium. [3].

    Important - Research indicates that widespread use of calcium supplements in individuals without a specific bone issue is not helpful, and may cause harm. Also, vitamin D supplements should be reserved for those with vitamin D deficiency or risk factors, principally low sunlight exposure or dark skin and not living in a sunny environment. These recommendations are consistent with those of the United States Preventive Services Task Force, which also does not support the use of either calcium or vitamin D supplements in otherwise healthy adults that live in communuties. The position of the International Osteoporosis Foundation is similar in that supplementation with calcium alone for fracture reduction is not supported by the literature but that calcium supplementation, with concomitant vitamin D supplementation, is supported for patients at high risk of calcium and vitamin D insufficiency [9].

    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]. The interaction between magnesium and vitamin D3 raises the concentration of calcium and phosphorus as theses nutrients work together to facilitate the growth of new bone [4-6]. 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 [4-7]. Magnesium supports proper muscle contractions and muscle relaxation during activity as well as glucose metabolism, which is involved in the production of energy [4-6]. Calcium helps regulate fluid transport by influencing the narrowing and widening of blood vessels [6, 7]. It also plays a role in the regulation of the heartbeat, muscle contractions, and nutrient transport [6, 7].
