MAGNESIUM is involved in over 325 biochemical reactions in your body.
EARLY SYMPTOMS OF MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCY INCLUDE:
- body aches
- leg cramps
- fatigue or low energy
- restless sleep
- headaches and migraines
- muscle twitches
- chronic constipation
- insulin resistance
- severe PMS, and more.
Left untreated, a magnesium deficiency can lead to more life-threatening conditions such as:
- HEART DISEASE
- TYPE 2 DIABETES
- OSTEOPOROSIS and others.
CAL MAG INGREDIENTS
Most people think the main reason to take a Calcium/Magnesium supplement is to build strong bones. But the need for Calcium and Magnesium is so much more complex than that. An adequate intake of daily dietary Calcium is required to control the heart rate, blood clotting, muscle contraction, and much more. And Magnesium is an important co-factor in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the human body, contributing to the production of cardiovascular functions, and the production and synthesis of energy.
While Magnesium enhances the absorption of calcium, it also works hand in hand with calcium, one to contract muscles and the other to relax them, as well as relaxing and calming nerves. Together, they create an intricately linked relationship to support the nervous system. Although only a small amount of blood calcium is needed in the blood and soft tissues, without it your heart wouldn’t beat steadily, your muscles wouldn’t contract correctly, your blood wouldn’t clot, and your nerves wouldn’t carry messages.
HERE ARE THE BENEFITS OF EACH INGREDIENT IN CAL-MAG
CALCIUM – Is vital for the formation of strong bones and teeth and for the maintenance of healthy gums. It’s important in the maintenance of a regular heartbeat and for the transmission of nerve impulses. Calcium lowers cholesterol levels and helps prevent cardiovascular disease. It is needed for muscle growth and contraction and for prevention of muscle cramps. It may increase the rate of bone growth and bone mineral density in children. It is essential in blood clotting and helps prevent cancer. It may lower blood pressure and prevent bone loss associated with osteoporosis. Calcium provides energy and participates in the protein structuring of RNA and DNA. It is involved with the activation of several enzymes including lipase, which breaks down fats for utilization by the body. Calcium maintains proper cell membrane permeability, aids in neuromuscular activity, helps to keep skin healthy, and protects against pre-eclampsia during pregnancy. If high blood pressure develops during pregnancy, it can be reduced by calcium intake. Calcium protects bones and teeth from lead by inhibiting absorption of this toxic metal.
MAGNESIUM - The beneficial effects of magnesium are numerous. It was reported in the March 1, 2003 edition of the prestigious American Journal of Cardiology that patients with known coronary artery disease who were given magnesium not only improved exercise tolerance, but also reduced exercise induced chest pain, while improving quality of life.-is a vital catalyst in enzyme activity, especially those involved in energy production. It assists in calcium and potassium uptake. Deficiency of magnesium interferes with the transmission of nerve and muscle impulses causing irritability and nervousness. Magnesium can help prevent depression, dizziness, muscle weakness and twitching, and PMS. It aids in maintaining the body’s proper pH balance and normal body temperature. It prevents the calcification of soft tissue and protects the arterial linings from stress caused by sudden blood pressure changes. Magnesium plays a role in the formation of bone and in carbohydrate and mineral metabolism. Along with vitamin B-6, magnesium helps to reduce and dissolve calcium phosphate kidney stones and may prevent calcium-oxalate kidney stones. Research shows a link to the prevention of cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and certain forms of cancer, and may reduce cholesterol (probably in correlation with calcium). It is effective in preventing premature labor and convulsions in pregnant women as well as reducing birth defects such as mental retardation and cerebral palsy.
MANGANESE – minute quantities of manganese are needed for protein and fat metabolism, healthy nerves, a healthy immune system, and blood sugar regulation. It is used in energy production, bone growth and for reproduction. It is used for production of cartilage and synovial (lubricating) fluid of the joints. It is necessary for the synthesis of bone. It is essential to people with iron-deficiency anemia’s and is needed to utilize vitamin B-1 and E. In conjunction with other B vitamins, it gives an overall feeling of well-being. It aids in the formation of mother’s milk. It is a key element in the production of enzymes that metabolize fat.
BORON – is needed in trace amounts for healthy bones and muscle growth. Boron assists in the production of natural steroid compounds within the body. It is necessary for the metabolism of calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. It enhances brain function, promotes alertness, and plays a role in how the body utilizes energy form fats and sugars. Boron helps prevent postmenopausal osteoporosis and build muscle.
VITAMIN D – is a fat-soluble vitamin that has properties of both a vitamin and a hormone. It is required for the absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus. It is necessary for growth, especially for the growth and development of bones and teeth in children. It protects against muscle weakness and helps to regulate the heartbeat. It is important in the prevention and treatment of breast cancer, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and hypocalcaemia, and it enhances immunity. Vitamin D is necessary for thyroid function and normal blood clotting.
The question is.... can you afford to be deficient in Calcium, Magnesium and other essential trace minerals available through CAL-MAG?
