Dynamic Duo provides calcium and magnesium in equal amounts, with 200 mg of each mineral per 2 capsule serving. Although the most commonly recommended dietary ratio for calcium to magnesium is 2:1, magnesium depletion has become very common in the US. Many components of the modern lifestyle increase magnesium loss, including stress (physical or emotional), alcohol or coffee consumption, exercise, excessive sweating, and certain medications such as birth control pills, various antibiotics, and common diuretics. These factors cause many individuals to require extra magnesium to compensate. The calcium and magnesium in this product are Albion® mineral amino acid chelates for optimal tolerance and absorption.

When in balance, calcium and magnesium play vital roles in many areas of human health. Calcium is crucial for muscle contraction, proper blood clotting, wound healing, the secretion of hormones and enzymes, nerve transmission, the building of strong bones and teeth, and for inhibiting the build-up of lead in the body.
Magnesium, one of the most critical minerals in the human body, is involved in hundreds of enzyme reactions and plays a pivotal role in muscle relaxation, energy production, heart health, maintenance of proper blood pressure, and in helping to prevent the accumulation of aluminum, a toxic metal implicated in many common degenerative neurological disorders.
Great examples of this harmonious duo: calcium is necessary for muscles to contract, while magnesium is needed for muscles to relax; calcium works to stimulate nerves, while magnesium calms the nerves.
Dynamic Duo offers chelated calcium and magnesium in the standard 2:1 ratio, the ratio found in the human body. It has long been understood that the key to these two minerals comes, not simply from their extensive individual roles, but rather from the synergistic effects when they are in proper balance with one another.
Signs and symptoms of magnesium deficiency include: • Fatigue • Irritability • Becoming easily startled • Muscle cramps/twitches • Difficulty phasing out background noises • Insomnia
A fundamental point is that overly imbalanced calcium supplementation can actually lead to greater demand for magnesium.
Why Albion® Mineral Amino Acid Chelates are superior to mineral salts: • Most bioavailable form: not only allows for superior absorption but is retained better in body tissue such as bone • Easy to tolerate: chelated calcium is better tolerated than non-bound calcium salts; does not cause the milk-alkali syndrome which can lead to stomach upset and kidney problems • Do not interfere with the absorption of other minerals • Exceptionally stable: stays intact throughout the digestive system • Phytates (i.e., from fiber) and picolinates will not interfere with the absorption of Albion chelated minerals due to these minerals’ stability
Great buffers for balancing pH Both calcium and magnesium are alkalinizing minerals, functioning as buffers which help keep the body’s pH from becoming too acidic. Thus, these minerals can easily be depleted during this buffering process in situations involving high acid diets (protein/grains). For best results in raising patient levels of these minerals.
Who should consider Dynamic Duo? Dynamic Duo is ideal for people who are not consuming enough green leafy vegetables, nuts/seeds (magnesium sources), and dairy products (an ideal calcium source) to obtain adequate levels of these essential minerals. Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take one capsule per day with a meal, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
