Calcium ... don't too much.. Magnesium-calcium truth

A healthy cell has high magnesium and low calcium levels. Calcium can lodge anywhere in your body and cause serious harm if not balanced with magnesium, which regulates the action of calcium.

excess calcium buildup around your bones and joints mimics arthritis. Too much calcium lodged in your heart imitates arterial lesions. Calcification or calcium poisoning can manifest as heart disease, cancer, wrinkled skin, kidney stones, osteoporosis, dental problems, bone spurs, cataracts and many other health problems.

The adverse effects of excessive calcium intake may include high blood calcium levels, kidney stone formation and kidney complications. [17] [17] Elevated calcium levels are also associated with arthritic/joint and vascular degeneration, calcification of soft tissue, hypertension and stroke, and increase in VLDL triglycerides, gastrointestinal disturbances, mood and depressive disorders, chronic fatigue, and general mineral imbalances including magnesium, zinc, iron and phosphorus. High calcium levels interfere with Vitamin D and subsequently inhibit the vitamin’s cancer protective effect unless extra amounts of Vitamin D are supplemented.

Signs and symptoms of hypercalcemia may include:

• Nausea
• Fatigue
• Vomiting
• Lethargy
• Stomach Pain
• Moodiness
• Constipation
• Irritability
• Anorexia
• Confusion
• Excessive thirst
• Extreme muscle weakness
• Dry mouth or throat
Irregular heartbeat
Frequent Urination
• Coma

When it comes to magnesium and calcium neither can be divided from the other. One is not divisible from the other in terms of overall effect. They are paired minerals yet it is magnesium that holds the overall key for their paired function. In truth magnesium holds the key to life. It is, as the Chinese say, the most beautiful of all metals. It is a nutritional element that can and is used as a medicine to great effect by all who know of its beauty and power.
