Calcium (Ca)andmagnesium (Mg) have become the Gold Standard when discussing nutritional supplements, mineralratios,paired cell receptors, or many nutrition-related health issues in general. Calcium is now the most promoted nutrient by proponents of conventional, nutritional, as well asalternativemedicine - yet at the same time, the assumed need is based purely on the speculation that the body'sdietarycalcium intake is well below its requirements.Of the approximately 1,000 g of calcium in the average 70 kg adult body, almost 98% is found in bone,1% inteeth, and the rest is found in blood, extracellular fluids, and within cells where it is a co-factor for anumber of enzymes. Calcium promotes blood clotting by activating the protein fibrin, and along with magnesiumhelpsto regulate the heart beat, muscle tone, muscle contraction and nerve conduction.Parathyroid hormone (PHT) secreted by the parathyroid gland and calcitonin secreted by the thyroidglandmaintain serum calcium levels at a range of between 8.5 to 10.5, whereby calcium is mobilized from bonereserves, and intestinal absorption of calcium is increased as needed. The parathormone can also affectrenal functions to retain more calcium. When blood calcium does up from too much parathyroid activity,calcitonin reduces availability of calcium from bone.The calcium to phosphorus ratio in bone is about 2.5 :1, while the ideal dietary phosphorus / calcium ratioisestimated to be about 1 :1. Many dietary factors reduce calcium uptake, such as foods high in oxalic acid(spinach, rhubarb, beets, chocolate), which can interfere with calcium absorption by forming insolublesalts inthe gut. Phytic acid, or phytates found in whole grain products, fiber-rich foods, excess caffeine fromcoffee,colas, tea..., as well as certain medications may all reduce the absorption of calcium and other minerals,or leach calcium from bone. Normal intake of protein, fats, and acidic foods help calcium absorption,however high levels of these same sources increase calcium loss.Chronic calcium deficiency is associated with some forms of hypertension, prostate and colorectal cancer,some types of kidney stones, miscarriage, birth (heart) defects in children when the mother is deficient incalcium during pregnancy, menstrual and pre-menstrual problems, various bone, joint and periodontaldiseases, sleep disturbances, mental health / depressive disorders, cardiovascular and/or hemorrhagicdiseases, and others (listed onPage 2).  Osteoporosis can result from both, low and  high levels of calcium, magnesium, copper, phosphorus,silicon,fluoride, chromium, (and Vitamin D), but mostly as a result of their improper ratios to one another. Thereare just as many patients with excessive, as with deficient calcium levels, whereby the treatment chieflyconsistsof having them supplement whichever co-factors are low in ratio to calcium, which may includemanganese,phosphorus (protein), magnesium, zinc, Vitamin C..., or the use of acid-raising digestive aids to increasesolubility or bioavailability of calcium. (see also Acu-Cell Osteoporosis ).Random intake of high amounts of calcium for the prevention of osteoporosis can be bad news for aperson'scardiovascular system, since it is frequently promoted without any individual assessment to establish thatit isindeed calcium which is needed, and not any of several co-factors that help absorption of calcium intobone.As mentioned already, the foremost task when dealing with mineral-related medical conditions, is tocorrecttheir  ratios . Deficiency symptoms - particularly those involving calcium and copper - can still take placedespite their levels being above-normal, when either associated, or interactive elements are even higher yet. Vitamin K fulfills an important role in the utilization of calcium and prevention of osteoporosis through itseffect on osteocalcin, which helps maintain calcium in bone, but at the same time keeps it out of softtissue.While Vitamin D helps in the synthesis of osteocalcin, Vit K is required for it to function properly.Researchhas shown that both, Vitamin K and Vitamin E help reduce calcification of arteries, however Vitamin K(ideallyin the form of Vit K2) was additionally able to slow calcium loss in those with a tendency to lose it, andthat itbetter helped maintain bone density and prevent osteoporosis than Vitamin D and synthetic estrogen.Individuals who exhibit below-normal calcium or magnesium levels get away with more atherogenic (junk)diets compared to those with normal or higher levels, and I always point out to patients that once their calciumor magnesium levels are raised, they will have to watch their sugar and (trans) fat intake more. Thereasonsare very simple:   Calcium raises:VLDL TriglyceridesMagnesium raises:LDL CholesterolCalcium lowers:MCT & SCTMagnesium lowers:HDL CholesterolCalcium lowers:Total TriglyceridesMagnesium lowers:Total CholesterolCalcium lowers:PhosphorusMagnesium lowers:SodiumMCT = Medium Chain TriglyceridesSCT = Short Chain TriglyceridesFor the above reasons, calcium and magnesium, at higher amounts , exhibit atherogenic properties.
