Natural Calm Plus Calcium features the same highly absorbable, water-soluble magnesium that is in Natural Calm, along with calcium and other ingredients to aid absorption. The formula is ideal for those who require a calcium supplement, but want to maintain a good calcium/magnesium balance.
This formula contains:
325 mg elemental magnesium per serving, sourced from the ocean’s rich mineral content.
Calcium, which is great for anyone who is not getting enough calcium in their diet.
Bioavailable forms of potassium and boron, as well as vitamin C and D, to help the absorption of the calcium and magnesium.
Magnesium is an essential mineral and is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, however, the majority of us are not getting adequate amounts.
This could be due to a number of factors including: the amount of magnesium required by the body is greater than the intake, fruits and vegetables may have lost mineral content over time due to soil depletion, or the magnesium supplement currently being taken is poorly absorbed by the body.
Magnesium helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system and, in conjunction with calcium, keeps bones strong. Magnesium also supports healthy blood sugar levels and normal blood pressure. Cellular magnesium deficiency can express itself as fatigue and low energy; inability to sleep; muscle tension, nervousness; sluggish bowels and heart irregularities. It can also exacerbate an already existing disease state or increase the risk of complications in many health conditions.
Calcium is an important nutrient for maintaining total body health. Your body needs it every day, not just to keep your bones and teeth strong, but to ensure proper functioning of muscles and nerves. It even supports healthy blood clotting!
But too much calcium is a problem, as it can deplete the body of magnesium. Calcium acts to excite nerves and is necessary for muscle contraction. Magnesium, on the other hand, calms nerves and is needed for muscle relaxation. Calcium makes bones stiff and hard, but magnesium is needed to avoid them becoming brittle.
An excess of unabsorbed calcium may result in kidney stones and deposits in soft tissues such as arteries and heart cells, where it can calcify or harden into insoluble calcium. You experience the tensing (calcium) and relaxing (magnesium) interaction of these two elements each time your heart beats, when you feel your pulse, and every time you breathe.
Why they should be in balance?
Calcium makes muscles contract, while magnesium allows them to relax. Calcium is needed for blood clotting, but magnesium keeps the blood flowing freely. The good news is your body knows exactly how to create this balance, that is, when it has the right amount of these two fundamental nutrients available.
Our bodies are designed to obtain the nutrients we need from the food we eat, including plenty of magnesium. Most of us don’t get enough magnesium in our diet, while we often take in an excess of calcium, mainly in food products and supplements. Both high-calcium diets and stress-filled lives deplete the magnesium in our bodies even further. That’s where Natural Calm comes in.
