Today we are talking about Super Cal and Super Cal Plus. Whenever new supplements come out, it can be confusing. We have so many supplements in Young Living that the names are kind of similar, what they do is a little bit similar.
Super Cal is an older formulation.
Both Super Cal and Super Cal Plus have roughly the same ratios of calcium and magnesium.
Super Cal = 24% RDA of calcium and 29% RDA of magnesium
Super Cal Plus = 20% RDA of calcium and 30% RDA magnesium
Both supplements help support normal bone and dental health. They also help support enzyme, nerve and muscle function.
The combination of magnesium and calcium ensures that magnesium is there to help drive calcium into the bones rather than into the fats inside of arteries which increases the risk of atherosclerosis.
Biggest difference between these two supplements and MegaCal is that MegaCal is powder.
It may not be necessary to take these supplements if you are already taking Master Formula which includes calcium.
Magnesium is critical to the absorption of calcium.
Super Cal Plus contains an extract of red algae. This is where the calcium, magnesium and up to 70 different trace minerals are found. Red algae absorbs all the minerals in the ocean and it is this blend that helps maximize the bioavailability.
Another major difference between the two is that Super Cal Plus contains vitamin D3 and vitamin K2. The inclusion vitamin D3 and calcium allows us to make the claim that this supplement can help prevent osteoporosis when it’s included with a balanced diet.
Vitamin K2 is critical for ensuring that calcium stays INSIDE the bones once there. This is cool because it helps to avoid calcium in the arteries.
Some women choose to avoid wintergreen and lemongrass while pregnant.
Super Cal is the only one with potassium.
If I had to choose, I’d probably do Master Formula because of the broad spectrum of vitamins in addition to calcium and magnesium.
