- 500 mg of magnesium, 250 mg of calcium, and 1000 IU of vitamin D per dose
- Helps to maintain proper muscle function
- Helps the body to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins

Magnesium supplementation supports active lifestyles by aiding in the maintenance of muscle function and promoting healthy bone mineral composition. Vitamin D levels tend to be lower in overweight adults, and clinical trial results indicate that higher levels of vitamin D supplementation are needed to maintain normal vitamin D status in overweight individuals.
In a year-long, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, 1000 IU daily of vitamin D significantly attenuated hip bone mineral loss in women aged 60-70 with mean BMI values > 25. After 1 year of supplementation, mean hip bone mineral density loss was approximately 0.05% in the vitamin D treatment group, in comparison with an approximate loss of 0.60% in the placebo group. Serum calcium levels were also significantly increased in the vitamin D group.
