Calcium & Magnesium: A Matter of Balance
You experience the tensing (calcium) and relaxing (magnesium) interaction of these two elements each and every time your heart beats, when you’re feeling your pulse, and each and every time you breathe.
When we are under stress, our cells—which in their resting state contain magnesium—go through a change. Calcium, generally out of doors the cells, enters the cells and the calcium level becomes high. This is the action state in which a muscle cell, for example, will contract and tense the muscle. The magnesium then pushes the calcium out of the cell and the cell is again in its resting, relaxed state. Think of it as an on-off switch. The “off” is magnesium and the “on” is calcium.
But what happens to a cell that may be not in balance—where the magnesium level in the body is deficient?
In simple terms, the “off” switch doesn’t fully turn off. That means calcium can often leak into the cells and stimulate cell activity (the “on” switch). The result is stress accompanied by a number of of the magnesium deficiency symptoms.
Magnesium helps your muscles and nerves function properly; it helps to keep your heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system and also helps to keep your bones strong. This essential mineral helps keep an eye on blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure and is required for producing and storing energy. It’s easy to see why many researchers say that no single dietary factor is as critical as magnesium.
