Why DO the Best Race Horses Come From Kentucky?
It’s because the soil in Kentucky is high in phosphorus and low in calcium. Seriously. There’s an imbalance of calcium to phosphorus. That means you have horses that are wired and rearing to get out those starting gates and down the track!
Most people know that vitamin D plays a role in calcium absorption, but what many don’t know is that the best source is the ultraviolet rays from the sun, which convert skin oil to vitamin D.
Getting too much of this vitamin is called hypervitaminosis D. Many of us have experienced the pain and discomfort from too much time in the sun.
But, did you know that this is actually caused by a deficiency of fats? Also known as essential fatty acids or vitamin F.
Here’s how it works. Read more on How Fats Affect Your Calcium Absorption…
Why Calcium and Magnesium?
Your body needs a lot of calcium because:
- your bones consist mainly of calcium.
- one third of your body protein, by weight, consists of collagen (a jelly-like substance) that has vitamin C as its most important ingredient. This jelly is dependent on sufficient calcium to set. These two ingredients are mainly responsible for the firmness of your tissue.
Calcium (chemical symbol Ca) and magnesium (chemical symbol Mg) are macronutrients, what most of us know as minerals.
Minerals can be compared to the spark plugs in your car. They “spark” the chemical reactions in your body that make it function. If one of the spark plugs in your car doesn’t work, you may be able to start your car but you will feel that it’s lacking power and you will hear and feel it misfiring. If two spark plugs aren’t working, chances are it won’t start at all.
The Usual Solution for Headaches
Headaches can be caused by any number of things. Taking pills is the most common solution most people use – over-the-counter headache pills. If chronic, many people get tests like MRI’s done, but it is rare that any abnormalities are found and they usually just continue taking their pain-killers. The usual solution is to suppress the symptom. That’s what medication does. It doesn’t get to the underlying problem and correct it. It is like putting a plaster on a cut.

|Supplements for Stress|
In the same way that it requires more material to repair a damaged house than for the upkeep of one in good condition, every nutrient is needed in larger amounts to repair a body damaged by multiple stresses that cause disease and/or result from it.
Regardless of the causes or forms of stress, the body immediately tries to repair the damage done, but it cannot unless all nutrients are generously supplied. Nutritional needs increase tremendously at the very time eating can be most difficult; and a diet adequate for a healthy person becomes hopelessly inadequate for someone suffering from stress.
Below are some great supplements we’ve found to provide your body with what it needs to do the repair work. In addition, you’ll find a list of Simple Stress Relievers you can use. Take Care!
“My mom gives me Instant CalMag-C almost every day. She mixes it with juice and I love it.
It makes me feel better.
Sometimes when I’m upset, it’s because I didn’t eat very well that day; and probably had too much sugar, so my mom fixes me up a glass of Instant CalMag-C and it makes me feel a lot better fast.
