Calcium Gluconate

Calcium gluconate is a mineral supplement. It most widely used in the treatment of hypocalcemia. It is also used to counteract an overdose of magnesium sulfate,which is often administered to pregnant women in order to prophylactically prevent seizures. Calcium gluconate is also used as a cardioprotective agent in hyperkalemia.

Calcium Lactate

Calcium Lactate is a white crystalline salt made by the action of lactic acid on calcium carbonate. It is used in foods and given medicinally. It is often found in aged cheeses. Small crystals of it precipitate out when lactic acid is converted into a less soluble form by the bacteria active during the ripening process. In medicine, it is most commonly used as an antacid and also to treat calcium deficiencies.

Properties Suppliers
Calcium Lactobionate

Calcium Lactobionate is used in dry pudding mixes, and mineral supplements.Calcium Lactobionate is an important drug intermediate used for the preparation of calcium tablets and injectables. It is used in proprietary oral liquid calcium preparation

Calcium Phosphate

Calcium Phosphate is the principal form of calcium found in bovine milk.It is used in the production of phosphoric acid and fertilizers, for example in the Odda process. Overuse of certain forms of calcium phosphate can lead to nutrient-containing surface runoff and subsequent adverse effects upon receiving waters such as algal blooms and eutrophication.Calcium phosphate is used in baking as the acid in a leavening agent.It is also used in cheese products.It is used in a variety of dental products for remineralization and as a diluent in some medications where it will give the tablet a grey colour in the absence of additional colouring agents.

Properties Suppliers
Calcium Sulphate

Calcium Sulphate is a common laboratory and industrial chemical. It is also used as a coagulant. Calcium sulfate is a common component of fouling deposits in industrial heat exchangers.Calcium sulfate can be used to make calcium tablets and it is used to cure brittle nails, weak hair, yellow teeth, frequent muscle cramps, joint pains, constant fatigue, kidney stones, PMS, gallstones, and high cholesterol.

Magnesium Chloride

Magnesium chloride salts are typical ionic halides, being highly soluble in water. The hydrated magnesium chloride can be extracted from brine or sea water. Anhydrous magnesium chloride is the principal precursor to magnesium metal. Magnesium chloride is used in the manufacture of textiles, paper, fireproofing agents, cements and refrigeration brine, and dust and erosion control, used as a fertilizer in agriculture to supplement soil deficiencies.Magnesium chloride forms a hard material called Sorel cement with hydrated magnesium oxide. It is an important coagulant used in the preparation of tofu from soy milk.Magnesium chloride is also used in several medical and topical (skin related) applications. It has been used in pills as supplemental sources of magnesium.

Magnesium Gluconate

Magnesium Gluconate is the magnesium salt of gluconic acid. It is a naturally occurring mineral. It is important for many systems in the body, especially the muscles and nerves.Magnesium gluconate is used as a supplement to treat low levels or to maintain adequate levels of this mineral in the body.

Magnesium Sulfate

Magnesium sulfate is a chemical compound containing magnesium, sulfur and oxygen. It is used as a drying agent. In agriculture and gardening, magnesium sulfate is used to correct magnesium deficiency in soil, since magnesium is an essential element in the chlorophyll molecule. It is commonly used as a desiccant in organic synthesis due to its affinity for water. It is used in bath salts, particularly in flotation therapy where high concentrations raise the bath water's specific gravity, effectively making the body more buoyant. This property is also used to restore some Lava lamps damaged by being shaken by exchanging the water and adding drops of a concentrated solution until sustainable buoyancy is reached. It is also used as a reactive compound in the manufacture of Black Powder, where it contributes to a violent burn rate thus reducing material costs. Oral magnesium sulfate is commonly used as a saline laxative. Epsom salt is also available in a gel form for topical application in treating aches and pains.
