Calcium is remarkably similar to magnesium and yet they act very differently. They work together to help maintain normal function in the body.
Calcium works to excite nerves, to stimulate a reaction, allowing the body to communicate, contract muscles etc. Magnesium is vital for inhibitory control, blocking certain channels to prevent unwanted reactions, allowing muscles to relax and generally helping to control the nervous system. It is especially important for control of the cardiovascular system and regulation of the heart, preventing misfired signals caused by excess calcium, to maintain a steady even beat with a strong contraction.
Both calcium and magnesium have a number of other roles in the body and are vital for a huge range of interrelated functions that contribute to overall health, energy, metabolism, and brain function.
Recent research is finally gaining magnesium the recognition it deserves. For instance, most people know that calcium is good for bone structure, however very few people are aware that magnesium is also hugely important, and that treatments for osteoporosis and similar conditions require a combination of magnesium and calcium.
Magnesium deficiency can be responsible for a whole host of symptoms including, depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. Magnesium is also vital for proper melatonin and serotonin regulation, which greatly affect mood. Due to its regulation of the nervous system, magnesium is routinely used for muscle issues such as cramping and restless leg syndrome.
Magnesium is a key component of most heart disease treatments. Risk factors associated with heart disease such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and stress itself are all strongly associated with poor magnesium intake.
