Understanding Calcium & Magnesium

Although Calcium and Magnesium might seem like miracle products because of their almost instant results, they are in fact what the body needs daily and should be a part of everyone’s daily nutritional intake. Calcium and magnesium are not drugs but minerals the body requires in order to function properly.  

Together, Calcium and Magnesium are crucial to bone health and are essential for many bodily functions, such as sleep, pain, cramp and muscle spasm alleviation, nervousness, restless leg syndrome, relaxation, alleviating stress, hyperactivity, heart function, blood pressure and blood clotting to name a few but the way your body uses them means the minerals have to work in tandem to be fully effective.



Everyone needs calcium - from infants to the elderly, and of all the essential minerals found in your body, calcium is the most abundant, with 99% of the body’s calcium found in the bones and teeth.

Like magnesium, it’s vital to bone health. It enables bones to develop and grow, keeping them strong and dense up to the age of around 25, when they begin to lose density as part of the ageing process. Calcium helps slow this decline, and also contributes to normal muscle function, blood clotting, neurotransmission and digestive enzyme function.

But it has some absorption problems: It must be balanced with magnesium if the body is to use it well. In fact, taking either calcium or magnesium alone is likely to cause deficiency problems with the other. If you take calcium alone long enough, it will cause problems in the magnesium area. If you take magnesium alone long enough, it will cause problems in the calcium area.



Magnesium is an important mineral, playing a role in over 300 enzyme reactions in the human body. It has many functions include helping with muscle and nerve function, regulating blood pressure, and supporting the immune system. Magnesium helps bones form and remain strong. It enables the small mineral crystals that comprise part of your bone structure to increase in density and gain strength and it also allows your bones to absorb calcium more readily.


Calcium Needs Magnesium

In order for your body to absorb calcium, it needs to be accompanied by its partner, magnesium, in a balanced ratio of two parts calcium to one part magnesium.

Your body doesn’t rely on magnesium to absorb calcium. But without it, calcium can become toxic, depositing itself in soft tissues, kidneys, arteries and cartilage rather than in bones where it has the greatest benefit. This can lead to some quite severe health conditions. Balancing calcium with the right amount of magnesium stops these potentially harmful issues occurring.


Calcium and Magnesium Need Vitamin C

Both calcium and magnesium are alkaline so they need some kind of acid before your body can fully absorb them. Failing to have this combination can lead to increased deficiencies of calcium and/or magnesium or, worse still, the calcium depositing in your joints (arthritis) or kidneys (stones). You can use apple cider vinegar or vitamin C, which is a more practical and better-tasting solution and commonly known as CalMag-C.
