This is the best calcium / magnesium supplement that we have ever found. It really works. Older women really can reverse osteoporosis. Many women have said goodbye to PMS (PMT) and menstrual cramps with GNLD’s unique Cal-Mag. If you are easily irritated, nervy, jumpy or can’t sleep, take Cal-Mag at tea-time and bedtime.
It is safe to take larger amounts than on the bottle. Cal-Mag even relieves the muscle pain associated with arthritis and can ease acute back spasms.
Your body’s most abundant mineral
Ninety-eight percent of the body’s calcium is in bones, 1% is in teeth, and the last 1% is distributed throughout our body in muscle tissue, nerve tissue and in the bloodstream.
More than just bones and teeth
Calcium is needed for all muscle growth and activity. Our heartbeats, our breathing and our ability to move depend upon calcium. Impulses cannot be transmitted throughout our nervous system without calcium.
Along with several enzymes, it is involved in blood clotting, and in both nutrients and waste passing through the cell wall. Magnesium is involved in muscle activity; heart beat regulation and hundreds of enzyme reactions.
Calcium deficiencies are real
The average man consumes about 50% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA); women generally less than that. Although milk and dairy products are dependable sources of calcium, they are also usually high in calories, fats and cholesterol, the very things most people are trying hard to avoid. (Pasteurising or heating milk makes the calcium harder to utilise.)
Coffee and alcohol drain calcium from the system. Stress decreases absorption but increases the body’s demand for calcium. Drinking too much soda (approximately five cans/ day according to a USDA study) upsets the body’s calcium/phosphorus ratio. The body attempts to maintain balance by drawing calcium from bone.
Deficiency signs are muscle cramps, numbness and tingling in the arms and legs, joint pains, heart palpitations, a slow pulse and tooth decay. In children, deficiency may result in bone and growth problems. Later, osteoporosis may develop. Extreme deficiencies may lead to slow blood clotting or bleeding.
Osteoporosis results from a prolonged dietary deficiency in calcium and affects 25% of women. It afflicts more women than do heart attacks, diabetes, arthritis or breast cancer. To prevent osteoporosis, women and men need at least 1000mg of calcium per day. Post-menopausal women are advised to take 1500mg daily. The average diet provides 400 - 600mg daily.
Teamwork is involved
Calcium needs Vitamin A, C, and D to function and iron needs calcium. Magnesium and calcium work as a team to promote cardiovascular health. A correct calcium/phosphorous balance must be maintained for the efficient formation of bone tissue.
Current research: Calcium
Research suggests that calcium may work against the changes in the colon lining which precede cancer. Calcium deficiency or an imbalance with sodium is linked to high blood pressure.
Magnesium plays an important role in regulating the glands, cardiovascular system and muscle contraction. It assists utilisation of carbohydrates, protein, fats, iron, calcium and other minerals. Stress depletes the body’s supply of magnesium, and research is looking to see if that depletion leads to a contraction of blood vessels, thus producing hypertension.
Cal-Mag has relieved:
Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), period pain, low back pain and the dragging down feeling after childbirth. It helps muscle injury pain and chronic pain associated with joint problems. It is fantastic for restless, aching legs, irritability, insomnia and nervous upsets.
