Magnesium and calcium play opposite roles to keep your body in balance. Magnesium helps blood flow freely, while calcium helps it clot. Calcium excites nerves, while magnesium calms them. Calcium forces muscle contraction, and magnesium allows rest between contractions.
When two nutrients support opposite sides of crucial functions, it is vital to get the right amount of each. Our diet does not support this balance. Dr. Jean Durlach (a leading magnesium expert) says that health suffers if we consume more than 2mg of calcium for each mg of magnesium (2:1 calcium to magnesium ratio). The healthiest ratio is thought to be between one and one and a half mg of calcium for each mg of magnesium.
In the United States, the average calcium to magnesium ratio is around 4:1 for women and 3:1 for men. According to magnesium researchers worldwide, this is extremely unhealthy. One daily serving of 300 mg of magnesium is enough to get most of us under the 2:1 ratio, and two servings will drop the ratio into the 1:1 to 1.5:1 range. Two servings is probably a good idea for those using calcium supplements.*
