TRIPLE BYPASS AND IRREGULAR HEART BEAT: “I am a 74-year old retired university professor living at the Makaha Valley Plantation on Oahu, State of Hawaii. I taught Lingiuistics at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). My degrees are from Harvard (B.A. cim laude ’58) and Yale (M.A. ’63, and Ph.D. ’65.)

In 2004 I had a triple bypass surgery from which I recovered well, but I have had arrhythmia ever since. These irregular heartbeats can be quite disturbing. Luckily, we have discovered CalMag-C, a veritable miracle powder. I carry it with me on airplane flights, into restaurants, etc. Nothing works faster or better! One mixes it with hot water, then cools it down with ice cubes or adds cold water. A heaped tablespoonful is what I take — maybe once every second day. IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM. I recommend it enthusiastically for anyone with a similar problem.” Dr. Adam Makkai

ARRHYTHMIA: “I’m 52 and I experienced heart arrhythmia for the first time a couple of weeks ago.  It was the first time the arrhythmia was strong enough to make me uncomfortable and for me to be able to feel the erratic beats in the pulse at my wrist.  I made myself a cup of CalMag-C and sipped it.  Within minutes my heartbeat had steadied into a regular rhythm and I felt fine.  It was remarkable to experience myself what I had read about in customers’ stories.”  AS in Florida

How Your Muscles and Heart Work

Most people know that they need calcium to build healthy bones and teeth, but did you know that calcium contracts your muscles while magnesium relaxes them? Think of a heartbeat. The heart must contract then relax to perform its function of pumping blood through your body. If you’re deficient in one or the other, it can cause a malfunction.

All the muscles and organs in your body work this way. Like a car needs spark plugs to get the engine going and to keep it going, your nervous system needs calcium and magnesium to spark off electrical nerve flow.

Deficiencies in calcium and/or magnesium affect your nervous system. Its job is to send signals (messages) to all your organs and muscles to do their job. If your nerves can’t send the signals, your body will malfunction as the organs and muscles don’t get the “message”. This can vary from mild discomfort through various stages of discomfort and/or severe pain. Besides being vital for your nervous system’s proper function, they are also needed for controlling your heart beat and blood pressure.

Your adrenal glands are responsible for the contraction and relaxation of the blood vessels that lead to your heart. That’s how your blood pressure is controlled. In order to do this, they need calcium, magnesium, salt and potassium. If you have deficiencies of these minerals, your adrenals can’t do their job and that can lead to heart problems, including failure.

If your calcium levels are low, your blood vessels can’t contract so there is not enough force to push the blood through and if your magnesium levels are low, your blood vessels can’t relax and that can result in muscle spasm of the heart and that’s how heart failure can occur.

If you feel stressed, tense, have pain or spasms anywhere in your body or can’t sleep, imagine how much strain your heart is taking because what you’re feeling could be symptoms of deficiencies of calcium and magnesium and that means other areas of your body are being affected too!

Insufficient calcium and/or magnesium makes your nerves tense up which then tense your muscles and can cause misalignment of your spine, creating all kinds of apparently unexplained aches and pains.

You only have one heart and one body so it is worth ensuring that they get proper nutrition, including calcium and magnesium.

Instant CalMag-C

We made Instant CalMag-C the way we did with two parts calcium gluconate* and one part magnesium carbonate with vitamin C to adjust the pH so your body can absorb and use it! That is why we get such good results with it. It is properly balanced and ready for your body to use so your body can actually absorb and use it and it doesn’t create imbalances or deposits. (*gluconate – read the article on why calcium gluconate vs carbonate!)

Every week we have users reporting the positive effects they’re getting from using Instant CalMag-C, some of which can be seen below.

Other Successes

JOINT & BACK ACHES, SLEEP, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE:I have been taking your CalMag-C now for the past five months.  Boy, does it work.  I had aches in my joints, hands and back and couldn’t sleep because of that!  I feel much more myself now and the pain is under control.  I can’t go without it.  My mom is also using it now and her high blood pressure is much better and she can’t be without it either! Thanks very much for your excellent service and product!” OL Sunninghill

EXERCISE, SORE MUSCLES, BETTER SLEEP, LESS ANXIETY: That white powder (calmag) really works! I can exercise much harder every day. It helps me sleep. I wake up and my muscles are not sore anymore. I feel like I can work much harder at gym and in my sport. My muscles are recovering much faster. I also don’t worry so much anymore.”  …. Sean

EXERCISE, MUSCLES, SLEEP, HEARTBEAT: “I use it for running, muscles, sleeping, and I find that it helps to regulate my heartbeat. I use it daily” PW Florida

SEVERE LEG CRAMPS: “I was experiencing horrible leg cramps every night that left my calf muscles sore the next morning. I would be awakened as many as eight times each night which left me exhausted every day. Someone told me about Instant CalMag-C and since I have been taking it, I do not experience any cramps in my legs at night! Needless to say, I faithfully take “CalMag with C” every day. Thanks, Desiree!!“ Lee Margaret L, Florida 

SLEEP, CRAMPS: “Ever since I started to use your CalMag-C and vitamin formula I can sleep again.  I no longer have cramps in my legs and I feel much more myself. I can’t live without your CalMag-C and vitamins.  It worked for me within a week. Thanks so much for such fantastic products.” SN Vanderbijlpark.

CRAMPS:  “What a fantastic product! I started using the Instant CalMag-C two weeks ago and I am feeling much more flexible and energetic. I have no more cramps in my hands and legs! Where have you been all my life?” MM Eastgate

ACHES, STIFFNESS AND AGE: “I love CalMag-C! My husband and I have a painting business. We paint the insides of people’s homes for them. I am 55 and he is 62 and we don’t hire anyone. We do all the work ourselves. It is hard work. I might wash 50 doors and scrub and caulk the baseboards in an entire house, all before noon. My husband could roll 1500 square feet of wall in a day. Most people couldn’t do what we do. As a result we get aches and general stiffness that definitely make you feel old and worn out. When that happens I find myself automatically thinking that I have a “bad knee” and I better stop using ladders or that my old shoulder injury is “acting up” and I might even start thinking that I better slow down and take it easy because I am wearing my body out. But I am really not ready to stop! I like what I do and it works for us. 

“But then I realize I just need CalMag-C, or more CalMag-C. I now drink up to 3 glasses a day to keep the aches and pains completely at bay. It is that simple and it works fast, I feel a distinct difference within an hour and if I still have aches and twinges I drink more later in the day, and I keep it consistent until my muscles and nerves feel smoothed out. I have learned not to think but to drink CalMag-C! I would like to thank Desiree for creating this product and making it available. It has been a gift that has allowed both me and my husband to continue a successful business far longer than we expected to.  Along with that she has been a guide and teacher, which is a priceless bonus.” Mary F, Florida
