Natural Calm Plus Calcium Packets
Calcium and Magnesium Balance
Both calcium and magnesium play vital roles in the functioning of our cells. When cells are in a resting, relaxed state, contain magnesium. When we are under stress, a change occurs where calcium, normally outside of the cells, enter the cells and calcium levels go high. This creates an action state in the muscles, where our muscles will contract or tense the muscle. Afterward, magnesium pushes the calcium out of the cells, putting it again into a relaxed state. It's similar to a light switch with an "on" and "off" state. Calcium is the "on" and magnesium is the "off".
When there isn't a proper balance, with too little magnesium, the "off" switch never fully turns off. This causes calcium to make their way into the cells and stimulate activity. The result is stress and any of the other symptoms that go with magnesium deficient.
Magnesium helps your muscles and nerves function properly. Additionally, it helps keep your heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system and helps to regulate blood sugar levels. Magnesium promotes normal blood pressure and is needed in producing and storing energy.
Due to the intense stress put on athlete's bodies from exercise and sweating, magnesium loss can occur. Many athletes are deficient not only in magnesium, but calcium as well.
A common problem in sporting activities is muscle cramping, which is a sign of low magnesium levels. Calm Plus Calcium provides highly absorbable calcium, with Calm - an award-winning magnesium supplement. Additionally included in the formula are vitamins and minerals, so that the calcium and magnesium will be fully utilized and you'll have a healthy balance of the two.
