Calcium and Magnesium - The Relaxation formula

Calcium and Magnesium - The Relaxation formula

For natural and healthier heart, take a mix of calcium, magnesium and other minerals. Calcium is natures sleep aid. Take it just before bedtime. It is absorbed well at that time and will relax you.

In addition, calcium regulates your heartbeat and is essential for proper muscle function, bone health and blood clotting.

Magnesium works in synergy with calcium and has dozens of important jobs of its own to perform in the body, including regulating fluid balance in your cells and acting as a cofactor for many enzyme reactions. One of magnesium's major roles is to strengthen and regu­late the heart muscle. Diets deficient in magnesium can lead to heart spasms. In fact, some physicians are giving their patients magnesium before heart operations. Magnesium also helps relieve most types of muscle spasm.

What to take: A multiple mineral mix of 400 to 600 mg calcium, 300 to 400 mg magnesium, twice daily.

Good foods for calcium and magnesium: Sardines, salmon, collard greens, kale, broccoli and dairy products are rich in calcium. Foods rich in magnesium include unmilled grains, figs, almonds, seeds, dark green vegetables and bananas.
