Calcium and Magnesium: Working Together for Optimal Bone and Muscle Health
Though we would ideally get the right amounts of all
minerals necessary for health in our regular diets, this
unfortunately is not the case in modern Western society; too
often, we are suffering from mineral deficiencies without
even realizing it. When it comes to bone and muscle health,
two minerals in particular that we often get in insufficient
quantities are calcium and magnesium.
Calcium is particularly important for maintaining good bone and muscle health, and lack of it (or lack of absorption) can lead to conditions such as osteoporosis.
However, simply supplementing with calcium is only half the solution, given that your body requires magnesium to metabolize calcium properly. If you are deficient in either of these minerals, or if the ratios in your body are not balanced properly, not only will your bone and muscle health be affected, but so will the many other bodily processes that depend upon these minerals, particularly in cases of deficiency in magnesium, which is necessary not only for bone and muscle health, but also for over 300 other biochemical processes.
Usually, the recommended ratio of calcium to magnesium in supplementation is 2:1, though optimal ratios can vary depending on your diet, lifestyle, bodily condition, and other environmental factors.
