Help Your Heart Work Smoothly
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? So, if you have a heart, you for sure need this.
Think of a heartbeat. Your 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 engine oil for smooth function, your nervous system needs calcium and magnesium for smooth function. Minerals are basically the spark plugs of the body. They ignite the appropriate responses when needed.
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”.
Your adrenal glands are responsible for the contraction and relaxation of the blood vessels that lead to your heart and that’s how they control your blood pressure. 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 that can cause muscle spasm of the heart – 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 all you’re feeling is a symptom of deficiencies of calcium and magnesium those symptom mean other areas of your body are being affected too!
You only have one heart and one body so it is worth ensuring that they get proper nutrition, including calcium and magnesium.
Minerals: Calcium and magnesium are minerals that your body needs to function. They are known as major minerals. Other major minerals include potassium, sodium, phosphorus, manganese, sulfur, cobalt and chlorine. There are also dozens of trace minerals that your body needs in lesser amounts. That’s why they’re called trace minerals.
Calcium: Calcium is one of the most abundant minerals in your body. It accounts for about 2 – 3 lbs of your total body weight. It is important for building and maintaining strong bones and teeth, good heart function and is a key ingredient in collagen, which is kind of like the glue that holds your body together. As collagen degradation occurs, so you get more and more wrinkles on your skin. That’s the visible part. Imagine what happens under your skin.
It also controls things like muscle growth and the electrical impulses in your brain and entire nervous system – which starts in your brain. It helps to maintain proper blood pressure via your adrenal glands and makes your blood clot when you cut yourself.
Calcium also helps make the molecules to digest your food, makes energy for your body, prevents heart disease, corrects and prevents arthritis, prevents cramps, muscle spasms, ensures that your bones don’t get brittle, ensures proper sleep, and many more. It is also nature’s own tranquilizer. Calcium gluconate is also a natural painkiller that is better even than morphine without the side effects!
Magnesium: Magnesium is calcium’s main partner. It helps with proper growth, formation and function of your bones and muscles, Magnesium works with calcium to control your muscles and how they contract. Magnesium prevents some heart disorders, helps your digestive system, helps prevent breathing problems like asthma (it relaxes the bronchial tubes), converts food to energy, helps your body absorb calcium and potassium.
“I am a 74-year old retired university professor living at the Makaha Valley Plantation on Oahu, State of Hawaii. I taught Linguistics at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). My degrees are from Harvard (B.A. cum laude ’58) and Yale (M.A. ’63, and Ph.D. ’65.)
“In 2004 I had a triple bypass surgery in St. Joseph Hospital in Chicago. I recovered from this 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 and adds cold water. A heaped tablespoonful is what I take — maybe once every second day. IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM.”Dr. Adam M, Hawaii
“I’m 52 and experienced heart arrhythmia for the first time a couple weeks ago. At least, 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 other customers’ stories.” AS in Florida
