A Solution for Calcium and Magnesium
Our unique calcium magnesium citrate co-salt is an ideal product for customers producing a solution that contains both Ca and Mg.
There is a strong tendency for mixtures of Ca- and Mg- Citrates to solidify in solution. They become cement-like. This is a natural reaction that occurs often in water suspensions. Jost R&D developed a proprietary process to create a unique product: Ca2 MgCitrate which will not harden in water solution and gives the correct ratio of Ca: Mg of 2:1 — the same ratio as the recommended daily requirement. Calcium Magnesium Citrate Pentahydrate provides 14% calcium and 4.2% magnesium per unit dose on an “as is” basis, delivering 140mg of calcium and 42mg of magnesium per gram of Calcium Magnesium Citrate Pentahydrate used in a formulation.
Our calcium magnesium citrate co-salt is a unique compound and has been approved by the FDA as a New Dietary Ingredient. Jost offers two product codes:
Code 2200, Purified Powder is beneficial to customers that desire aqueous suspensions of Ca and Mg with excellent mouth feel and unmatched suspension stability. Jost’s calcium magnesium citrate co-salt stays in suspension and therefore alleviates solidification, hardening and flowability issues, even over an extended period of time.
Code 2206, Purified Granular is beneficial to customers that desire a directly compressible magnesium source for tablet manufacturing. Typically magnesium salts are very difficult to tablet. However, the compressibility of calcium magnesium citrate co-salt is superior to both calcium citrate and magnesium citrate.
Our calcium magnesium citrate co-salt, like many other products manufactured by Jost, has low levels of vagrant metals including a lead limit of 0.2 ppm maximum. Read more.
