Magnesium and calcium are fundamental nutrients that need to be in balance with each other in order for you to fully experience good health. Their importance on a cellular level is critical. Calcium and magnesium are like opposite sides of a coin. Calcium excites nerves, while magnesium calms them down. Calcium makes muscles contract. Magnesium, is necessary for muscles to relax. Calcium is needed for blood clotting, but magnesium keeps the blood flowing freely.
Calcium & Magnesium: A Matter of Balance
You experience the tensing (calcium) and relaxing (magnesium) interaction of these two elements each time your heart beats, when you feel your pulse and every time you breathe.
When we are under stress, our cells - which in their resting state contain magnesium - go through a change. Calcium, normally outside the cells, enters the cells and the calcium level becomes high. this is the action state in which a muscle cell, for example, will contract and tense the muscle. The magnesium, then pushes the calcium out of the cell and the cell is again in its resting, relaxed state.
Think of it as an on-off switch. The "off" is magnesium and the "on" is calcium.
But what happens to a cell that is not in balance - where the magnesium level in the body is deficient?
In simple terms, the "off" switch doesn't fully turn off. That means calcium can continually leak into the cells and stimulate cell activity (the "on" switch). The result is stress.
Magnesium helps your muscles and nerves function properly; it keeps your heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system and also assists in keeping your bones strong/ This essential mineral helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure and is required for producing and storing energy. It's easy to see why many researchers say that no single dietary factor is as critical as magnesium.
Calcium - Too Much of a Good Thing?
Calcium deficiency can be a serious issue. It is an important nutrient your body needs every day, but too much calcium can also be a problem.
The recommended adequate daily intake of calcium according to the National Institutes of Health, Office of Dietary Supplements, is 1,000 mg for adults aged 19-50 and 1,200-1,500 mg of supplemental calcium in addition to their dietary intake of calcium (an 8oz cup of low-fat fruit yogurt contains 345 mg of calcium and one cup of nonfat milk contains 306mg). Unassimilated calcium can end up in the soft tissues of the body where it deposits and hardens (calcifies) or in the urine where it may results in kidney stones.
Reduce Stress Naturally
Unless calcium and magnesium are properly balanced, magnesium becomes depleted (too much calcium can deplete magnesium levels). This can results in an inability to quickly recover from stress and can itself be a source of stress.
Do You Have a Healthy Magnesium Level?
Most people don't get enough magnesium, including many who already take magnesium. There are two reasons for this: the amount of magnesium required by the body is greater than people think, and many magnesium capsules and tablets are not completely absorbed by the body.
Magnesium deficiency can be caused by a number of stresses on the body, including - but not limited to - lack of adequate dietary magnesium, emotional stress, some drugs (diuretics, antibiotics, oral contraceptives, insulin, cortisone), heavy exercise, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders and too much calcium in the diet.

"Both our current diet and tendency to oversupplement with calcium... make getting enough magnesium almost impossible." -Carolyn Dean, MD, ND
Symptoms of Magnesium Depletion
Millions suffer daily from symptoms that can result from a lack of magnesium. Due to the fact that magnesium is so vital to so many bodily processes, deficiency can contribute to a wide variety of conditions, such as:
• Fatigue & Low Energy
• Inability to Sleep
• Muscle Tension, Spasms & Cramps
• Anxiousness and Nervousness
• PMS and Hormonal Imbalances
• Weakening Bones
• Abnormal Heart Rhythm
• Calcification of Organs
Why is Nutritional Magnesium so Important?
Magnesium is one of the most important basic nutrients that power our bodies and it is required for more than 700 biochemical reactions. But since our bodies don't produce this mineral, we need to replenish its supply every day. Due to nutrient-deficient soil and fast-paced lifestyles, few of us (estimated at less than one in five) get sufficient magnesium in our diets. This means supplementation is needed, and Natural Calm is the best-selling, award-winning ionic magnesium that mixes easily in water to restore healthy magnesium levels quickly and affectively.
