Twenty volunteers were used for this study. All volunteers have a deficient in calcium and magnesium. All patients were administered orally a tablet of combined calcium carbonate 292.5 mg and magnesium carbonate 232.3 mg produced by Commercial Company, Jordan. The mean concentration of blood calcium and magnesium after one week of tablet supplement was 100.8±8.3 and 15.7±1.0, respectively.
