Quest Chewable Cal-Mag. Quest Cal-Mag Chewable is a high-quality supplement containing calcium and magnesium in a 2:1 ratio, plus vitamin D3. The spearmint flavour gives this product a refreshing taste and makes it ideal for those who want the benefits of a high-potency calcium and magnesium supplement, but have difficulty swallowing tablets. Calcium and magnesium are vital components of bone and tooth metabolism, and both participate in energy production, muscle contraction, nerve function, and the maintenance of the acid-alkali balance of body fluids. Vitamin D is essential for the absorption of calcium.

Calcium: This mineral is well known for its essential role in the formation of bones and tooth enamel; however, it also performs many other functions. Calcium is involved in fat and protein digestion and the production of energy. It is involved in blood clotting and the transmission of nerve impulses, and it regulates the contraction and relaxation of muscles, including the heart. In addition, calcium may reduce the risk of colon cancer and suppress the growth of polyps that can lead to cancer.
Magnesium: Besides its role in maintaining healthy bones by promoting the absorption of calcium, magnesium is involved in maintaining a healthy nervous system. In addition, magnesium is required for muscle relaxation, energy production, protein formation, cellular replication, the regulation of sodium and potassium in the cells, and efficient heart function.
Vitamin D: This vitamin regulates calcium metabolism. Without vitamin D, the body cannot properly absorb calcium, and the bones and teeth become soft and poorly mineralized.
