Calcium and magnesium are macro minerals - this means that every human body needs a lot of them on a daily basis. For a good absorption of calcium, a ratio with magnesium of 2:1 is recommended.
If there is a shortage of calcium, the body removes this substance from the bones, so that the bone density decreases even faster. This causes the bones to weaken. Sufficient calcium is therefore very important.
Many of the enzymes involved in the production of energy from carbohydrates, fats and proteins require calcium to activate themselves. Calcium is also involved in the maintenance of healthy cellmembranes, for nutrients and waste to get in and out freely.
It is important in all muscle activities such as heart rate, breathing, a wink and a quick movement. The body also uses calcium to transmit nerve impulses (this also calms the nerves). With too little calcium, the nerves can send or receive incorrect impulses, which can cause cramps or muscle twitches.
