The Calcium and Magnesium Relationship
Calcium is an important nutrient essential to maintaining total body health.
Your body needs it every day-not just to keep your bones and teeth strong, but
to ensure proper functioning of muscles and nerves. It even helps your blood to
But can too much calcium be a problem? Yes, it can.
A MATTER OF BALANCE
Calcium deficiency can be a serious issue and has been heavily promoted through
the media and advertising. But the hidden cause of calcium deficiency is the
fact that available calcium is not being assimilated by the body due to a lack
Without a proper balance of these two minerals, magnesium gets depleted, which
will result in the negative effects associated with lack of magnesium and a
buildup of unassimilated calcium.
In addition to the many calcium (without magnesium) supplements on the market,
calcium is now added to cereals, crackers, juice, antacids and other items
(including soft drinks). None of these products contain magnesium to balance the
CALCIUM, MAGNESIUM AND STRESS
Calcium and magnesium are two different 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. It is vital to keep these minerals in
balance. Too little magnesium to balance calcium can be both uncomfortable and
To ward off the negative effects of a prolonged period of stress or
over-reaction to stress, calcium needs to be balanced with adequate amounts of
magnesium. Going through a stressful period without sufficient magnesium can set
up a deficit that, if not corrected, can linger, causing more stress (see
symptoms of magnesium depletion listed below) and further health problems.
Today we have diets dangerously low in magnesium. Add the recent inclusion of
nutritional calcium via supplements and food fortifications meant to stave off
osteoporosis and many of us are getting inadequate magnesium plus too much
Women taking calcium supplements to prevent osteoporosis-without adequate
magnesium-can actually lower the vital bone mineralization process. Magnesium is
as important as calcium in the prevention of osteoporosis and is crucial to
increasing bone mass.
NATURAL CALM PLUS CALCIUM
If you feel you are not getting sufficient calcium in your diet, Peter Gillham's
Natural Calm Plus CalciumTM is the answer. It blends Natural CalmTM-the
best-selling, most absorbable and fastest acting magnesium available-with
calcium and other key ingredients so the calcium you take will actually be fully
utilized. Your body's magnesium level won't be depleted and there won't be any
buildup of unabsorbed calcium.
Symptoms of Magnesium Depletion
Millions suffer daily from symptoms that can result from a lack of magnesium.
Because magnesium is required for hundreds of enzymatic reactions (enzymes are
protein molecules that stimulate every chemical reaction in the body),
deficiency can cause a wide variety of symptoms, such as
PMS and Hormonal Imbalances
Inability to Sleep
Muscle Tension, Spasms & Cramps
Calcification of Organs
Abnormal Heart Rhythm
A NEW NATURAL CALM FORMULATION
by Peter Gillham
Natural Calm Plus Calcium utilizes the same advanced technology as Natural Calm.
The minerals in this product go into total solution in their ionic form and are
readily available to the body. Water acts as a carrier and transports the
minerals quickly to where the body needs them.
Natural Calm Plus Calcium contains added nutrients to ensure that the calcium is
absorbed and utilized. It is the most advanced formula available for the
assimilation of calcium. This is particularly important, as calcium will not be
efficiently assimilated by the body without these other nutrients being present.
In addition to calcium, Natural Calm Plus Calcium contains magnesium (Natural
Calm), vitamin C, vitamin D and boron, which assist in the assimilation,
utilization and distribution of the calcium within the body. This results in the
creation of strong bones, joints and connective tissue, and a healthy, active
immune system to protect against invasion of bacteria, viruses and other
uninvited guests. Natural Calm Plus Calcium also includes potassium, which is
vital for a healthy heart, nerve function and energy production.
This product is ideal for men and women of all ages and in particular for
seniors, as it helps in the reversal of bone loss, joint, cartilage and
connective tissue deterioration, and malfunction of the various glands and their
emission of hormones.
Natural Calm Plus Calcium is formulated with 3 parts magnesium to 2 parts
calcium, which will prevent a surplus of calcium robbing the body's vital
magnesium supply and avoid the symptoms associated with depleted levels of
