Calcium and magnesium are essential to the human body. Without them, our bones will break down and our muscles will cease to function properly.
Minerals, especially calcium and magnesium, are necessary for the contraction and relaxation of the muscles. When many of us are deficient in these minerals, we get muscle cramps, especially after doing activities.
Symptoms of Calcium/Magnesium Deficiency
Poor heart health
High blood pressure
The Calcium/Magnesium Blood Pressure Cuff Test
Lie down and place a blood pressure cuff around the largest part of the calf.
Begin inflating the cuff at a steady pace.
When you feel the onset of a cramp, or a cramp-like pain (not just pressure), stop.
What this does is replicates a trauma to the muscle and measures inflammation. You should be able to pump up the pressure cuff to 240 mm (but 200 mm at a minimum).
If you feel the onset of a cramp or cramp-like pain anywhere below 200 or 240, you are most likely deficient in calcium and magnesium.
What to Do If You’re Deficient in Calcium and Magnesium
A deficiency in these minerals is not to be taken lightly, especially if you’re already noticing heart problems or have a genetic history of heart trouble.
We strongly recommend filling the deficiency with Calcium/Magnesium Plus. This is not your run-of-the-mill calcium supplement you pick up at your corner drug store. The best way to get these minerals is in chelated form, and in a balanced ratio of calcium to magnesium (a 5:1 ratio). You won’t find that at CVS.
Calcium/Magnesium Plus is the perfect balance of chelated calcium and magnesium.
