+ Calcium Carbonate
Calcium Carbonate is a naturally occurring mineral. We source high purity, high performance raw materials. HuberCal® pure and natural calcium carbonate offer superior texture and high purity, outstanding performance and exceptional value. Calcium Carbonate is used as a calcium supplement to support bone and muscle health, nervous system and heart health. It is also used as an antacid to relieve heartburn, acid indigestion and upset stomach.
+ Calcium Citrate
As an organic form of Calcium, Calcium Citrate has better bioavailability, solubility, texture and taste than other forms of Calcium. It has a neutral flavor profile, and is the only organic Calcium source that does not influence the taste of fortified products. Calcium Citrate is used for the fortification of food and dietary supplements as well as an acidity regulator and firming agent for food. Calcium Citrate is the most effective source of Calcium.
+ Calcium Phosphate
Calcium Phosphate is an inorganic source of calcium, providing a calcium and phosphate is the recommended RDA ratio. This white, free flowing powder is tasteless, odorless and insoluble in water, the finer grade material is not detectable in the mouth. Calcium Phosphate is used in the fortification of food and beverage, including cheese, yogurt, soy, rice and cows milk, juices, baby food and cereal. It is also used as a free flow agent in powdered products such as premixes, salt and beverage powders.
+ Calcium Potassium Citrate
Gadocal K is a patented organic Calcium Potassium Citrate compound with 15% Calcium and 6% Potassium. Potassium Citrate contributes to a higher bioavailability of the Calcium. Gadocal K allows for complete dispersion and suspension of Calcium without sedimentation of the Calcium or coagulation of proteins, eliminating the need of stabilizers or gums. Gadocal K provides calcium fortification to dairy, soy and rice beverages and yogurt.
+ Magnesium Carbonate
Magnesium Carbonate is a free flowing white, granular or powder material that is insoluble in water and alcohol. It is used in the production of antacid tablets and mineral supplements and cosmetics. Magnesium Carbonate is also used for color retention in the food industry. ICL's magnesium is known for its particularly low heavy metal content, high purity and tightly controlled chemical and physical characteristics.
+ Magnesium Citrate
Magnesium Citrate is non-GMO, white crystalline powder used as a high bio available source of Magnesium for food fortification and mineral supplements. It has a neutral taste without having a soapy, bitter or sandy taste of other sources of Magnesium. Magnesium Citrate absorption does not cause stomach upset, it can be taken on an empty stomach and has minimal interference with other mineral and nutrient absorption. Optimal Magnesium consumption reduces stress, sleep disorders, fatigue and as well as neuromuscular abnormalities while maintaining bone mass.
Gadot's Tri Magnesium Citrate grade range includes:
- Powder for general applications
- Micronized with low particle size for easy suspension in beverages, dairy products and protein drinks
- Tableting grades for direct compression tablets.
+ Magnesium Hydroxide
Magnesium Hydroxide is a white, free flowing powder used in the manufacturing on antacids, laxatives, mineral supplements and is considered a strong electrolyte. This organic compound is often called milk of magnesia because of its milk like appearance. Different bulk densities offer a choice of compounding possibilities for tablet and powder dosage systems.
+ Magnesium Oxide
Magnesium is a naturally occurring mineral that is an important nutrient for the human body, supporting the muscles and nerves. Magnesium Oxide is used as a Magnesium supplement or an antacid for the relief of heartburn, indigestion and sore stomach.
We are proud to offer Magnesium Oxide from ICL-IP Dead Sea Periclase. ICL-IP supplies the world’s purest high end Magnesium Oxide, meeting strict criteria of standards such as: EP, FCC, USP, BP, JP, IDL and GMP. By processing magnesium compounds from the waters of the Dead Sea, ICL-IP is able to offer superior quality Magnesium Oxide with significantly low levels of heavy metals lead, arsenic, aluminum, and mercury. This free flowing ingredient is used in vitamin and mineral supplements, antacids, cosmetics and food additives.
Magnesium is an essential nutrient to the proper function of the human body. It is required for over 300 different reactions within the body. 70-80% of the American population is not meeting their daily recommended intake of magnesium, making supplementation an essential key to proper health and cell function. Magnesium assists in the body’s absorption of potassium and calcium. Insufficient stores of magnesium within the body can affect calcium metabolism as well as the hormones that regulate calcium. Magnesium in combination with calcium supports strong bones and teeth.
Magnesium is one of six essential minerals required in large volumes by the body. Sufficient levels of magnesium support a healthy immune system and normal kidney, nerve and muscle function. It plays a key role in energy metabolism and protein synthesis so that you don’t experience muscle weakness or exhaustion. A few signs of magnesium deficiency include muscle spasms, cramps and weakness, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, and numbness or tingling.
Research has shown the impact magnesium has on heart health by regulating heart rhythm and lowering blood pressure. It can protect against cardiovascular disease and may even reduce the risk of having a stroke and complications after a heart attack.
Magnesium plays a significant role in reducing the risk of developing Type II Diabetes and can assist the body in regulating blood sugar by efficiently metabolizing glucose and carbohydrates as well as limiting insulin sensitivity.
Magnesium Oxide has shown to be beneficial source of magnesium, especially in diabetics, cancer patients, alcoholics, and people with chronic malabsorption issues such as Crohn’s disease and Celiac disease as well as people taking diuretics or antibiotics.
