Did you know that your body can have TOO MUCH Calcium? For years we have often been told we need more Calcium - so much so that we now have Calcium-fortified milk, juice, and cereal, along with the large amounts found in our vitamins and supplements. Has anyone ever told you what happens to your body when you get too much Calcium? Have you ever heard that you need Magnesium just as much as you need Calcium?
A little known fact - Magnesium and Calcium work directly together in many functions. Calcium contracts your muscles, while Magnesium relaxes them. Together they regulate heartbeat, muscle tone and contraction, and nerve conduction.
Magnesium is used to transport Calcium and Potassium ions in and out of cells. It also contributes to the absorption and retention of these important minerals.
