Portland, OR (PRWEB) August 26, 2013
Kirkman®, a manufacturer known for the purity of its nutritional supplements, has just released a new product, Calcium/Magnesium - Hypoallergenic.
This proprietary product provides calcium blended with magnesium for comprehensive care, offering two important minerals in one hypoallergenic capsule. The suggested daily dose of two capsules supplies 300 mg of calcium from a carbonate-citrate blend and 150 mg of magnesium from an oxide-glycinate blend. Vitamin D is added to enhance absorption.
Calcium is an important component of a healthy diet and necessary for life. Approximately 98 percent of the body’s calcium is stored in bones and teeth, which makes sense because calcium is critical for building bones and teeth in childhood and for maintaining strong bones and teeth thereafter. In the rest of the body, calcium supports heart function, circulation, nerve function and muscle tone.
Magnesium is an essential mineral that is involved in many body functions as well as being a constituent of bones and teeth. In addition to being an essential element of cellular metabolism and an enzyme activator, magnesium also relaxes nerve impulses and muscle contractions and promotes relaxation, contributing to restful sleep.
As with all products that Kirkman® manufactures (except lotions, creams and oils), Calcium/Magnesium - Hypoallergenic is Ultra Tested®, which means that it has been purity tested for more than 950 environmental contaminants. No other nutritional supplement company in the world even comes close to Kirkman’s purity testing standards.
More About Ultra Tested®
Kirkman® developed its Ultra Tested® standards for purity in response to the growing problems of environmental contamination in the nation’s food supply. In our modern world, environmental contaminants are ubiquitous. Natural ingredients in dietary supplements such as minerals and herbs that come from the ground may be exposed to dangerous pesticides, air or water pollutants or other environmental toxins. Moreover, the sources of supply for most of the raw ingredients used in nutritional supplements have shifted to countries such as China and India.
Kirkman® uses state-of-the-art mass spectrometry equipment and methods to test for 950 environmental contaminants that include 24 heavy metals, bacteria, yeast, mold, common allergens, pesticides including fungicides, insecticides, herbicides, biocides, endocrine disruptors and other potentially harmful chemicals.
No other nutritional supplement company in the world tests its products for purity more thoroughly than Kirkman® does. Kirkman® believes that this degree of testing is necessary to assure customers that their nutritional supplements are pure and safe to take.
