Review of Nature's Wonder Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc, 150 capsulesI've been using supplements for many years, and am quite familiar with this product space. I have my favorites, based on results.
Nature's Wonder Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc is in tablet form, not capsule form. I hope they will correct the product label. These are tablets. And something I really like is it takes three tablets to get the full dosage. That means you don't try to choke down one tablet the size of a small horse. And you can take less than three if you don't want the full dose.
I also like the fact it doesn't have an adult-proof cap. You can actually open this without a chain saw.
This is not the first calcium/magnesium supplement I've tried, but this one also contains zinc (vital for supporting testosterone). I've been supplementing with these nutrients a long time, because inadequate levels of any of them can result in any of a long list of maladies. But I don't supplement daily and don't usually take the full dose.
Here are my reasons why. If one or more does not apply to you, then you need more magnesium than I do:
If you are on a grain-based, rather than green-based, diet you probably have a deficiency of all three of these nutrients. And you probably have assorted problems, including low testosterone (yes, that includes you ladies too). Supplementing with this product for a few months while you get your diet straight will definitely help your body recover from your poor diet.
Since my diet already provides me with more than enough of all three of these nutrients why do I bother with a supplement? Because these particular minerals are so important that I want to ensure against a deficiency. For me, it's not a daily thing because it doesn't need to be. About once a week is sufficient. If you're on the grain diet, daily is for you.
For the most part, minerals have become commoditized. So it's difficult to point out how one brand compares to another. But let me try to do that.
I like to evaluate supplements on several metrics:
A note on the RDA. The recommended values are based on many factors that may not apply to a given individual. For example, if your Vitamin D is sufficient (four times the RDA) and you're on a nutrient-dense, grain-free diet, then you get more than enough calcium in your diet even though it may be below the RDA. The RDA for calcium was arrived at based on insufficient Vitamin D. The body in low-D mode has problems absorbing using the calcium, so you take more to make up for this.
If you are on the typical American diet, you need to replace grain with green. This is a foundational step in personal health care. During the transition phase, while your body is detoxing and nutrient absorption is probably encumbered, add multi-mineral supplement to your program. This looks like a good one, to me.
The articles on this site are authoritative, because:
Where an article is not bylined with a specific author's name, it was written by Mark Lamendola (see photos on home page and elsewhere on this site). Mark is a 4th degree blackbelt, has not been sick since 1971, and has not missed a workout since 1977. Just an example of how Mark knows what he's talking about: In his early 50s, Mark demonstrated a biceps curl using half his body weight. That's a Jack LaLanne level stunt. Few people can even come close. If you want to know how to build a strong, beautiful body, read the articles here.
