In this article we will be discussing a very common question: vitamin d3 calcium and magnesium. It’s quite a sensitive & complex subject, as such we will do our best at providing a clear and concise article to clear any doubts you may have.

Other supplements like vitamin K2 (VitK2) and magnesium (Mg) could contribute to the maintenance of skeletal health. This narrative review summarizes the most recent data on Ca, vitD, vitK2 and Mg supplementation and age-related bone and muscle loss. Ca supplementation alone is not recommended for fracture prevention in the general postmenopausal population.
Patients at risk of fracture with insufficient dietary intake and absorption could benefit from calcium supplementation, but it needs to be customized, taking into account possible side-effects and degree of adherence. Vitd supplementation is essential in patients at risk of fracture and/or vitD deficiency. Vitk2 and Mg both appear to be involved in bone metabolism.
Data suggest that VitK2 supplementation might improve bone quality and reduce fracture risk in osteoporotic patients, potentially enhancing the efficacy of Ca ± vitD.
Taking Vitamin D And Magnesium Together
It’s suggested that people whose magnesium intake is high are less likely to have a vitamin D deficiency than people whose magnesium levels are low. It’s also claimed that magnesium supplementation increases vitamin D levels in people who are deficient in the vitamin, but causes a reduction in people whose intake is high.
Like any vitamin or mineral, vitamin D can’t work without first being converted into a form your body can absorb. The enzymes (in the liver and kidneys) that enable vitamin D metabolism—converting it into its active form, calcitriol—can’t work without sufficient amounts of magnesium to draw upon. Vitamins and minerals all work in combination and rely on each other to be fully effective.
Itself has been portrayed as being the key nutrient for bone health. Vitamin D and magnesium are also important. Vitamin D facilitates calcium’s absorption, and magnesium helps keep calcium out of the soft tissues and in the bones where it’s needed most.
Most studies have found a combination of bone health nutrients to be superior to any single nutrient alone. For example, a study of fracture risk in postmenopausal women found a decreased risk of fracture in women who took supplemental vitamin D3, but found an even greater decrease in fracture risk when calcium was included. National survey data indicates that more than 40% of U.S. Adults are vitamin D deficient2,3 – defined as less than 20 ng/mL of serum 25(OH)D. On the bright side, data shows that 37% of U.S. Adults report taking supplemental vitamin D.2-4
Vitamin D and calcium are not the only nutrients that are dependent on each other for their efficacy.
* Furthermore, individuals with an adequate magnesium level were found to require less vitamin D supplementation to maintain a normal level of that vitamin. *5
Research has correlated diets higher in magnesium to lower incidences of vitamin D deficiency. Cal-Mag Citrate Effervescent Powder and Vitamin D Liquid – both non-encapsulated products provide easy supplementation for kids and adults.

help me sleep better and that is it. I have heard of the benefits of men taking zinc and magnesium before. No human should ever have to go into the next day with the day before feeling attached to them, as if they do not feel refreshed. I am also taking their multi-vitamin but i contribute my sleep successes to this calcium, mag, zing formula. I have started working out again now that i am 30, and these really help me sleep well so my muscles recover in my sleep, and my bones also feel good because of the calciu.
