Did Your OB/GYN Recommend Use Of Calcium Supplements?
Important Information For
As your baby begins to develop and grow, the demand for calcium from you increases significantly. As you breast feed, the demand for calcium in your milk will continue.
Most of the calcium will come from your diet.
However, if there is insufficient calcium in your diet, your bones will supply the needed mineral. In order to ensure that you have adequate calcium, your OB/GYN may have recommended use of calcium supplements?
MagiCal™ (calcium magnesium citrate) is an excellent source of both calcium and magnesium.
First, the two minerals are present in a ratio that provides optimal support to you and your baby. Secondly, the two minerals act together to deliver calcium to your bones and to the baby, both during development and post-partum.
Did You Watch Oprah's Interview?
The experience of potentially serious pregnancy complications, mental as well as physical, is strikingly common. One of these complications is depression, as described most recently by Meaghan Markle. If it has not happened to you, it has almost certainly happened to someone you care about, though you may not have known it.
Soon after Meaghan’s disclosure, Twitter was filled with people sharing their own stories of depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts both during and after pregnancy.
“The interview brought back for me that really bad time in my life where I felt like I was spiraling down a drain, when my thoughts just would not let me be,” Wendy Molyneux, a mother of four and the showrunner of the animated series "Great North," who experienced debilitating postpartum anxiety after having her fourth child, said via direct message.
Pragya Agarwal, a data scientist and the author of a forthcoming book about the history and science of motherhood, said that after her twins were born prematurely, “I just wanted to disappear.”
“I was really close to just wanting to go away, basically, to not be here, and not just live,” she said. “I would cry and sit in my car in the supermarket car park.”
Magnesium can help with these feelings.
Among the reasons we recommend MagiCal™ (calcium magnesium citrate) is that it supplies both calcium and magnesium in a ratio that is designed to provide you with the benefits of both minerals. Just as supplementation with calcium is known to support maintenance of bone health during pregnancy and lactation, supplementation with magnesium has been reported to work quickly to reduce the feelings of depression and anxiety that can accompany hormone swings during pregnancy.
