IMO shoot for equal amounts of magnesium and calcium in your diet
“Silica, an essential mineral, plays an important role in many body functions and has a direct relationship to mineral absorption. Several studies show silica can help restore the calcium-magnesium balance.” Kaufmann, Schneider, Leibold, Note believe it or not silica may be more important to the calcium-magnesium balance than calcium
“Millions of lives would be saved if magnesium was supplemented and used widely as a medicine.” Magnesium for Life Mark Sircus Ac., OMD
“Vitamins and minerals
are not functionally separable. They make each other work. Example: vitamin D
is necessary for the body to absorb calcium. Copper is necessary for
vitamin C activity. And so on. Mineral deficiencies can cause vitamin
deficiencies, and vice versa. Epidemic mineral deficiency in
“Our diets today are very different from those of our ancestors
though our bodies remain similar. Thousands of years ago, our ancestors ate
foods high in magnesium and low in calcium. Because calcium supplies were
scarce and the need for this vital mineral was great, it was effectively stored
by the body. Magnesium, on the other hand, was abundant and readily available,
in the form of nuts, seeds, grains, and vegetables, and did not need to be
stored internally. Our bodies still retain calcium and not magnesium although
we tend to eat much more calcium (in the form of dairy products) than our
ancestors. In addition, our sugar and alcohol consumption is higher than
theirs, and both sugar and alcohol increase magnesium excretion through the
urine. Our grains, originally high in magnesium, have been refined, which means
that magnesium is lost in the refining process. The quality of our soil has
deteriorated as well, due to the use of fertilizers that contain large amounts
of potassium a magnesium antagonist. This results in foods lower in magnesium
than ever before.” Doctor PhD
“One can live longer with a vitamin deficiency than with a mineral deficiency.” Whiting 1989

study of 15,000 men and women aged 45 to 64 found those with existing cardiovascular
disease had significantly lower magnesium than those with no disease. Those
with high dietary and blood levels of magnesium had higher HDL levels as well
as lower blood sugar and insulin.”
“Magnesium stimulates endothelial cells to produce nitric oxide a vasodilator.” Nadler and Rude
“Low Magnesium levels are common findings in noninsulin-dependent diabetic patients.” Paolisso et al 1989
“Over 100 patients suffering from coronary heart disease were treated with intramuscular [injected] magnesium sulphate with only one death, compared to their findings in the previous year when, of 196 cases admitted and treated with routine anticoagulants, 60 died.” The British Medical Journal January 23, 1960
“Clinical data suggest
that magnesium supplementation may benefit PMS (11), some heart conditions (10), diabetes, chronic fatigue, and
in conjunction with calcium for osteoporosis.”
“The range of pathologies associated with Magnesium deficiency is staggering: hypertension (cardiovascular disease, kidney and liver damage, etc.), peroxynitrite damage (migraine, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, Alzheimer's disease, etc.), recurrent bacterial infection due to low levels of nitric oxide in the cavities (sinuses, vagina, middle ear, lungs, throat, etc.), fungal infections due to a depressed immune system, thiamine deactivation (low gastric acid, behavioral disorders, etc.), premenstrual syndrome, Ca deficiency (osteoporosis, mood swings, etc.), tooth cavities, hearing loss, diabetes type II, cramps, muscle weakness, impotence, aggression, fibromas, K deficiency (arrhythmia, hypertension, some forms of cancer), Fe accumulation, etc.” Doctor Steven Johnson
“In a study of 93 individuals almost all the CFS patients (54%) had a magnesium deficit (47%) with a lower total antioxidant capacity in their blood serum. The authors concluded that successful magnesium supplementation in CFS patients was followed by improvement in magnesium body stores; in serum vitamin E and in its interrelated lipid peroxidation.” Manuel et al
“Magnesium chloride, especially when applied transdermally, is reported by Dr. Norman Shealy to gradually increase DHEA in a natural way. Dr. Shealy has determined that when the body is presented with adequate levels of magnesium at the cellular level, the body will begin to naturally produce DHEA and also DHEA-S. Because of the problems with supplementing directly with DHEA, transdermal magnesium chloride mineral therapy holds great promise for DHEA hormonal supplementation because taking magnesium could counteract the heart attack and stroke hazards of synthetic DHEA hormone replacement therapy.” Magnesium for Life Mark Sircus
“A variety of cardiac arrhythmias have been associated with magnesium dis-equilibrium, including ventricular tachycardias, fibrillations, and ectopic beats. Coronary spasm is also a major pathogenic feature of hypo-magnesemia. For patients with variant angina, 24-hour magnesium retention after intravenous magnesium loading was 60%, while it was only 36% in control subjects. Substantial evidence has associated magnesium deficiency with sudden cardiac death, a condition that claims 300,000 lives every year.” Doctor Michael Lam MD
“A deficiency of magnesium can present common psychiatric symptoms including depression, anxiety, restlessness, and irritability. Depressed patients have been found to have lower levels of magnesium. Oral supplementation of magnesium has been tried as an adjunct treatment in psychiatric patients and been found to be successful in rapidly cycling bipolar affective-disorders. “ Doctor Michael Lam MD
“Sugar interferes with absorption of calcium and magnesium.” Lemann
“Heavy exercise also makes you lose magnesium in the urine and explains why long distance runners may suddenly drop dead with heart arrhythmias. Magnesium intake is most often marginal at best and heavy exercise is a factor that is particularly likely to expose athletes to magnesium deficit through metabolic depletion linked to exercise.” Doctor Sarah Mayhill
“When 3000 women who suffered from migraine pain were given 100 – 200 mg of magnesium, 80% reported a good response.” Weaver 1987
“Intravenous injections of magnesium, vitamin B6 and ascorbate can substantially reduce or eliminate the pain of acute migraines in most cases.” Wright 1989
“The blood of 26 women who experienced PMS had less magnesium in their red blood cells than in the blood of the control women.” Abraham et al 1981
“Animals starved of magnesium are nearly perfect specimens of accelerated aging. The lower the level of magnesium the more rapidly the animal ages and the more likely it is to die. Young animals deprived of magnesium develop neuromuscular problems resembling those of older animals. But when magnesium is restored their aging problems disappear.” French Research
“Consumption of soft drinks (pop or soda) decreases the body's absorption of magnesium. In the intestines, the phosphoric acid in soft drinks and the phosphates in baking powers combine with the magnesium to form magnesium phosphate, an insoluble precipitate that is excreted through the feces. The typical high-dairy, high fat North American diet contains almost four times as much calcium as magnesium. This unbalanced ration coupled with the high fat content tends to suppress magnesium absorption. Further, high levels of dietary or supplementary magnesium tend to suppress calcium absorption. Excessive supplemental calcium taken to encourage bone growth in children and prevent osteoporosis in adults leads to a decrease in magnesium absorption.” Doctor Michael Lam MD
“Magnesium can be recycled through the kidneys, with a 95% recovery rate. However, alcohol promotes magnesium loss, as do diets high in animal protein, sugar, sodium, and calcium. High blood levels of adrenaline and cortisol (hormones released during stress) cause serious urinary magnesium losses. Excessive noise and heat stress also promotes urinary magnesium losses. “Doctor Michael Lam MD
“Without magnesium the elderly person taking calcium supplements is at risk of blood clots, heart attack and stroke. Long term magnesium deficiency leads to vitamin E deficiency, perhaps because vitamin E is used up in fending off the free radicals the magnesium deficiency lets in.” Doctor Ronald Klatz
“Magnesium inhibits the
formation of blood clots. Magnesium inhibits the release of thromboxane a
substance that makes blood platelets sticker and more likely to clot.” Doctor

“Administering 360 mg a day of magnesium to patients produced an average drop in BP from 154/100 to 146/82.” Swedish Study
“4,500 mg four and one half grams of magnesium per day for four weeks dramatically improved glucose tolerance in elderly people.” Doctor Ronald Klatz
“26 formerly inactive
people were put on a weight lifting regime. One group received 507 mg of
magnesium a day, the other group 246 mg. The group receiving the higher dose of
magnesium reported an average 26% increase in strength, the group receiving the
lower dose an increase of 11%.” Exercise and Sport Science Lab,
“Soda pop beverages are the most toxic commercial beverages consumed and they are made from distilled water. Studies have consistently shown that heavy consumers of soft drinks (with or without sugar) spill huge amounts of calcium, magnesium, and other trace minerals into the urine. Long-term consumption has been linked to high blood pressure and increased risk of heart attack and stroke.” Doctor Michael Lam MD
"It is important to have adequate magnesium intake and most Americans do not. A number of people have written about muscle cramps after they start sunbathing or taking Vitamin D. This is likely caused from the neuromuscular hyperexcitability of magnesium deficiency that is somehow unmasked by higher Vitamin D levels. All the enzymes that metabolize Vitamin D require Mg. It is also required in each of the steps concerned with replication, transcription, and translation of genetic information, and thus it is also needed for the genetic mechanism of action of Vitamin D.” Doctor John Cannell MD Abbott LG, Rude RK. Miner Electrolyte Metab. 1993;19(4-5):314-22.
"At one event I was surprised to see a thin young man collapse to the ground just yards from our emergency aid station. His heart continued to violently race, as we put an oxygen mask over his blue lips. Another runner in his 20’s made it to our station but had to kneel down to wait for emergency assistance. He was weak, dizzy and frightened, with a dangerously irregular heartbeat.” Doctor Al Sears MD. Note these symptoms are almost certainly an indication of very low or exhausted magnesium or other mineral levels. If you run, or if you do not run assure ALL your mineral needs and protect against magnesium and sodium exhaustion.
"One of magnesium's many important functions is to
maintain a sodium and potassium balance. If your muscles lack potassium taking
magnesium can raise your potassium level better than taking more potassium."

Mortality in subjects with [magnesium deficiency] was
significantly higher for all-cause deaths ...and cardiovascular deaths ... This
corresponds well with recent findings that hypomagnesemia is associated with the
increase of left ventricular mass over the following years."
"The proteome, or entire set of proteins expressed by
the human genome, contains well over 100,000 distinct protein structures,
despite the fact that there are believed to be only 20,300 protein-coding genes
in the human genome. The discovery of the "magneseome," as its being called,
adds additional complexity to the picture, indicating that the presence or
absence of adequate levels of this basic mineral may epigenetically alter the
expression and behavior of the proteins in our body, thereby altering the course
of both health and disease."
Magnesium is a mineral essential for over 350 biochemical reactions, muscles, heart, nerves, immune system and bones. Most of us are at least somewhat deficient in magnesium. When you suffer a heart attack the first thing that is often done, and should be done MUCH MORE often, is to inject magnesium directly into your heart as you are being rushed into the emergency room. Without magnesium your heart cannot beat. According to Doctor Russell Blaylock, low magnesium is associated with dramatic increases in Free Radical generation as well as glutathione (See Glutathione Protocol) depletion.
If you eat magnesium foods in excess of your daily needs your body will
store the excess magnesium on your bone surfaces. IMO this is a great idea.

Modern Eating and Drinking Wastes Magnesium
"A diet of processed,
synthetic foods, high sugar content, alcohol and soda drinks all "waste"
magnesium, as a lot of it is required for the metabolism and detoxification of
these largely fake foods.”
If you eat the standard American diet, gosh I hope
you don't, you will be burning up a LOT of magnesium just to detoxify the junk
food you are eating and drinking.

Balance your Calcium with equal amounts of Magnesium
“Researchers such as Dr. Abraham further postulate that Primary Postmenopausal osteoporosis is predominately a skeletal manifestation of chronic magnesium deficiency, facilitated by estrogen withdrawal during the postmenopausal period. He suggested raising the RDA of magnesium to 1000 mg/day and lowering the RDA for calcium to 500 mg/day. His proposed daily intake for calcium would be more in line with the World health Organization's "practical allowance" of 400 - 500 mg daily for adults. Such a reversal of the magnesium/calcium ratio would most probably lower the incidence and prevalence of many other degenerative diseases as well.” Doctor Michael Lam MD
“Magnesium deficiency can cause various abnormalities of calcium metabolism, resulting in the formation of calcium deposits in arteries. Osteoporotic women who were deficient in magnesium had abnormal calcium crystals in their bones, whereas osteoporotic women with normal magnesium status had normal calcium crystals in bone.” Doctor Michael Lam MD
“Bones and teeth certainly do require calcium—as well as phosphorus and magnesium, but without adequate amounts of the latter, calcium will not be deposited in these hard tissues, and the structures will not be sound. When you load up your system with excess calcium you shut down magnesium's ability to activate thyrocalcitonin, a hormone that under normal circumstances would send calcium to your bones." Instead of providing benefits to the body, the displaced calcium actually becomes toxic …Numerous studies, in fact, have established the fact that it is dietary magnesium, not calcium, (and certainly not fluoride) that creates glassy hard tooth enamel that resists decay, and strong and resilient bones." William Quesnell, Minerals: the Essential Link to Health
Magnesium helps your arteries and muscles to relax and open, calcium helps them constrict. This is one reason why calcium and magnesium MUST be balanced in your body. Magnesium helps your bones absorb calcium. If you want to prevent osteoporosis, don't take more calcium; take more magnesium. Most of us get plenty of calcium from our food. But many of us don't absorb it well because our magnesium levels are too low for the absorption to take place.
Magnesium is distributed widely in fresh whole foods and like calcium is found in green leafy vegetables (See Green Leafy Vegetables Protocol). GREEN is the color of magnesium. Magnesium works best in combination with calcium, vitamin B6, and zinc.
The American ratio of calcium to magnesium is approaching 6:1, while the recommendation for healthy living is often given as 2:1.But even 2 parts of calcium to 1 part of magnesium is probably too much calcium, since current research on the paleolithic or caveman diets show that the ratio they used to eat was about 1:1. IMO shoot for equal amounts of magnesium and calcium in your diet.
Indications of LOW Magnesium Levels
Indications of LOW Magnesium Levels
If you are having ANY of these problems often just a few days of heavy
magnesium containing foods will lessen your symptoms and in a few weeks your
problems may be gone. At least that is the way it is with me. I often run low on
magnesium despite eating a LOT of high magnesium containing foods.
