When thinking about supplements, many people think of them simply in terms of optimal daily amounts. What fewer people consider, however, are the ratios of vitamins and minerals that work together in the body to promote overall health. Further complicating this matter are matters of lifestyle and diet; though the recommended ratio of calcium to magnesium for bone and overall health is 2:1, the ratio will vary depending on how much of each you usually get in your regular health care regimen - for instance, those with high-calcium diets may need more magnesium and may run the risk of overdosing on calcium if they supplement with the standard ratio. If this describes your situation, Douglas Laboratories Mag 2:Cal 1 is an excellent option, delivering double the magnesium for every unit of calcium in the supplement.
