Everyone knows calcium is important to our bone health; some people even take supplements to ensure proper skeletal growth. However, the problem with calcium is that it blocks your body’s ability to absorb magnesium. Without proper levels of magnesium, you are susceptible to migraines, constipation, insomnia, muscle cramps and even sudden death!*
If you do take a calcium supplement, make sure that your body is already getting its recommended daily dose of 400 mg of magnesium. To restore balance, you can also take a magnesium supplement, ideally in a 3:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium.
