USANA Active Calcium Magnesium – Chewable
USANA’s Active Calcium Chewable provides the same benefits as the tableted form of Active Calcium. It, too, can help ensure you get sufficient amounts of calcium every day to help in the maintenance of your bones and teeth. The chewable tablet is ideal for teens, those who dislike swallowing tablets, and pregnant women or anyone who suffers from occasional heartburn.*
Because the teenage years are a critical stage in development, USANA formulated this chewable calcium supplement to make it easier for those 12 and over to get enough calcium in their diet to keep bones healthy and strong. Preadolescent girls who take a calcium supplement experience greater gains in bone mineral content than those who do not.
Additionally, the calcium and magnesium compounds in Active Calcium Chewable act as an antacid, neutralizing stomach acids and thereby eliminating heartburn symptoms while also supplying calcium. This is especially helpful for pregnant women, who often suffer from heartburn and who also need adequate calcium to maintain healthy bones and support the baby’s developing bones and teeth as well.*
In Australia and New Zealand, osteoporosis affects one in two women and one in three men over the age of 60, which accounts for hundreds of thousands of broken bones annually.
Although signs of osteoporosis usually don’t occur until the later years of life, getting the proper amount of calcium in your diet now may help prevent calcium deficiency later. Supplementation of calcium is one of the keys to helping prevent osteoporosis and increasing quality of life. USANA’s Active Calcium Chewable offers an effective way to increase the amount of calcium in everyone’s diet.
Active Calcium Chewable is formulated with the same amount of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D as our Active Calcium tablet, making it a great way to increase dietary calcium for young and old alike. However, because this product is chewable.
It appeals to young people who might not otherwise consider supplementing their diet with calcium. With young people drinking less milk and consuming more soft drinks that leach calcium from young, growing bones, Active Calcium Chewable is an easy, appealing way to add more calcium to a healthy diet and can help build stronger bones.

The Science of Active Calcium Chewable
Our entire skeletal structure is not static. It constantly remodels itself and, in 10 years, we have an entirely new skeleton. This remodelling process requires sufficient amounts of calcium and vitamin D to form the bones properly. And, if there isn’t enough calcium or vitamin D available from the diet, it can result in bone loss and, possibly, osteoporosis. Adequate calcium and vitamin D as part of a healthful diet, along with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in later life. Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or be miss-shaped.
An essential nutrient that plays a key role in the bone re-modelling process, magnesium helps in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth. Approximately 60–70 per cent of the magnesium in the body is found in the skeleton, and higher intakes have been associated with higher levels of bone mineral density. Supplementing is especially important for middle-aged or older adults who are not receiving sufficient amounts of magnesium from their diet.
