Biotics Research Bio-CMP 250 tabs
Biotics Research's Bio-CMP is a special electrolyte mineral blend of calcium, magnesium and potassium.
When nutrient flow to muscle fibers is inhibited, a shortening or contracture of the muscle may occur. This shortening is frequently referred to as cramping and can cause considerable discomfort for your patients. Certain nutrients, such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium play a crucial role in the skeletal system and muscular function. Calcium is the most abundant mineral within the body. It comprises ~2% of the total body weight. In addition to its major function in the maintenance and repair of bone, calcium is important for most enzymatic activity, muscular contraction, the release of neurotransmitters, the regulation of cardiac function, and for blood clotting. Magnesium is the second most abundant mineral within the body. Like calcium, it is also contained in bone, muscle, and soft tissues. Magnesium plays a crucial role in energy production, and is necessary for activating nearly all enzymes. Magnesium deficiency, however, is overwhelmingly common in the United States –with many authorities estimating that over 80% of the population have insufficient magnesium status. Seniors and menstruating women are particularly susceptible to magnesium deficiency.
Lastly, magnesium is required for the activation of the potassium and sodium pump that pumps sodium out of the cells and potassium into the cells in order to avoid a disruption of cellular function (membrane potential). This activity has been estimated to account for 20%-40% of the total resting energy expenditure in the average adult. Potassium is one of the most important dietary electrolytes since it is critical for the transmission of nerve impulses, muscle contraction, and cardiac rhythm. Certain medications, such as diuretics, decongestants, and laxatives can deplete potassium levels. Extreme exercise, excessive alcohol consumption, or chronic vomiting or diarrhea may also lead to dangerously low potassium levels.
Bio-CMP™ is a special blend of electrolyte minerals designed to support muscular function. Each tablet contains a combination of 200 mg of calcium (as calcium gluconate), 100 mg of magnesium (as magnesium gluconate), and 100 mg of potassium (as potassium chloride) which supplies 18 mg of calcium, 5 mg of magnesium, and 52 mg of potassium in their respective elemental forms. Bio-CMP™ is many physicians’ first choice for supporting patients experiencing muscle cramping, particularly lower extremity and uterine spasm.
