Natural Calm Plus Calcium
Calcium is an important nutrient essential 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 helps your blood to clot. But can too much calcium be a problem? Yes, it can.
Excess calcium can deplete its vital sister mineral, magnesium, from the body and, as a result, can bring about symptoms of magnesium depletion, listed on the green page of this brochure. 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 their 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.
Athletes put their bodies under intense stress. Strenuous exercising and sweating (due to exertion and high temperatures) cause the body to lose magnesium. Many athletes are deficient in both calcium and magnesium.
Magnesium is also essential in addressing an issue common to almost all athletes-muscle cramping. When cramping occurs in workouts or competition, it is a sign of low magnesium levels. Natural Calm Plus Calcium balances a highly soluble and bioavailable form of calcium with Natural Calm-the best-selling, award-winning magnesium supplement-plus vitamins and minerals, so that the calcium you take will be fully utilized and you will have healthy magnesium levels. Magnesium won't be depleted by calcium and there will not be a buildup of unabsorbed calcium.
