PeaPod Cal-Mag is a calcium magnesium pregnancy supplement designed to help protect the bone health of pregnant and nursing mothers, as well as women hoping to become mothers and trying to conceive. Two daily tablets provide 50% of the calcium and magnesium recommended for pregnant and nursing mothers, to ensure just enough supplementation in a way your body can absorb and use.
Did you know you feel pregnancy in your bones? A growing baby needs plenty of calcium for developing bones, and if you don't ingest enough in your diet or through supplements, your body takes it from you to give to baby. While breastfeeding, lactating mothers can lose 3 to 5% of bone density due to inadequate calcium in their diets. While the bad news is that most women don't get enough calcium from their diets, the good news is that pregnant women's bodies absorb calcium better through food and supplements, and lost bone density can be restored after lactation.
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 and vitamin D enhances the absorption of calcium. As a result, 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 and to support the colon, heart, muscle, nerves, and the immune system.
With no artificial additives or preservatives, PeaPod Cal-Mag includes two different forms of both calcium (calcium carbonate and calcium citrate) and magnesium (magnesium oxide and magnesium citrate) for enhanced absorption.
PeaPod Cal-Mag is made in the USA and contains no yeast, wheat, soy, dairy, gluten, artificial preservatives or artificial flavors.
PeaPod Cal-Mag recommended use: Take 2 supplements daily with food. Designed to safely be taking in conjunction with PeaPod Prenatal Vitamins, or FertilAid for Women, or Milkies Postnatal Breastfeeding Multivitamin.

PeaPod Cal-Mag combines two different forms of both calcium and magnesium to ensure efficient absorption of these vital minerals. While this product contains calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide (two commonly used forms of calcium and magnesium in dietary supplements), PeaPod Cal-Mag 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.
