The Importance of Calcium and Magnesium
Calcium is an important mineral for the optimal functioning of many body systems. Calcium is a major mineral found in the bones and teeth. Deficiency of calcium causes bone and joint diseases such as osteomalacia, osteoporosis and osteo-arthritis. It also leads to poor growth and poor bone density in children. Calcium also protects the body from heavy metal toxicity because if calcium is deficient lead is absorbed by the body and deposited in the teeth and bones.
The muscles use calcium during contractions and by the nerves for proper transmission of impulses. If a deficiency of calcium affects the most important muscle, the heart, it can lead to arrhythmias. Calcium also helps with insomnia and muscle cramps by relaxing the muscles. Calcium lowers cholesterol, by inhibiting plaque formation, and lowers blood pressure, by ensuring the proper functioning of the arterial muscles. Calcium is pulled out of the bones when the body becomes too acidic. This can occur due to the use of some medications, poor diet or when the body is in a state of inflammation, like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. Calcium is involved at the level of the cell with the structure of the RNA and DNA molecules and the activation of enzymes for the use of fats. Calcium is commonly recommended by natural health care practitioners for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular disease, PMS, pregnancy, nervous disorders, and insomnia.
Synergistic Nutrients can make a substantial difference in the uptake of calcium by the bones. For a variety of different reasons calcium can be difficult to absorb - one of them being that as a mineral, calcium has a negative charge that can repel it from the cells of the body. It's very important, then, for people concerned about bone health that nutrients be taken along with calcium. Some of them include: magnesium (in a 2:1 ratio), zinc, silica, manganese, copper, boron, and potassium. While there are others, these are the ones that can make the biggest difference for bioavailability. Some of these, like magnesium and zinc, can increase absorption in the gut, while others, like the boron and silica increase the actual uptake of calcium by the bones and its subsequent integration as new bone mass.
Chelated simply means that a particular mineral is bonded to a protein molecule, for example aspartate or glycinate. This bonding makes it easier to digest and assimilate each nutritive mineral for proper utilization in the body.
