Calcium is a bone building mineral and is an integral part of the entire skeletal system. Magnesium stimulates the body's production of calcitonin, a hormone which supports healthy bone density. Calcium and magnesium also aid in regulating muscle contraction (such as heartbeat), nerve signals and hormone production.
A major dietary problem in captive reptiles and amphibians is the low assimilation of calcium from their daily food. The Exo Terra Calcium contains 8% of highly absorbable elemental calcium and 1% Magnesium to help maintain a strong bone structure.
A liquid supplement provides high absorption and assimilation because it passes directly into the small intestine.
