The most important mineral, which we hear from all sides - is probably calcium. Calcium, calcium, calcium ... If you break a limb - you will register calcium. If you have weak bones or teeth - you will register calcium. If you are 50 and above - you, too, will likely get a recommendation from your doctor for calcium reception for the prevention of osteoporosis, or something else.
 It is believed that calcium is easily washed out of the body that it why is never enough. Especially lovers of coffee and green tea. In reality, the situation is somewhat different.
Calcium is found in almost everything: from greens and vegetables to pizza or cheesecake with cottage cheese. Why, then, it's kind of like, always not enough? Because the body lacks other more important minerals, without which calcium can not be absorbed. The problem is not lack of calcium, but in its digestibility. And magnesium, silicon and vitamin D are helping to assimilate calcium.

   Magnesium deficiency of experience of more than 80% of the population. This mineral is almost gone in the soil over the past few decades, and consequently even less in vegetables, fruits and animal products. Lack of magnesium critical impact on the health and declares itself such options as heart attacks (problem №1 in the world), depression, low mood, fatigue, high blood pressure, irritability. In this, magnesium is our best antidepressant. It relaxes the nerves, lifts the mood and relieve PMS, improve sleep, protects against osteoporosis and tooth decay. Together with calcium magnesium regulates the transmission of electrical impulses to the cells, but that this process was correct magnesium in healthy cells should be a thousand times more than calcium, and we have just the opposite. In our diet too much dairy products and the critical shortage of magnesium. And this imbalance leads to hardening of the arteries, brittle bone, kidney stones, and health problems in general. Add to this the stress-filled life, the constant torment yourself in the gym, taking birth control pills, sports and energy drinks, excessive consumption of coffee and alcohol - all of these elements of modern life and reduce the already low amount of magnesium. And finally intestinal problems, because of which the body's ability to absorb magnesium reduced to zero.

   Run to the lab does not make sense. In the circulating blood is only a couple of percent of magnesium present in the body, in that the results of such a test will not be accurate, and diagnose the lack of magnesium is at the cellular level and in the muscles is very difficult.

   What to do? Firstly remove or reduce as much as possible in the diet and living habits and products contributing to the rapid consumption of magnesium:

 - alcohol

 - Sausages and smoked meats
 - Sugar and flour
 - Excessive athletic exercises "through I can not" (especially women)
 - energetic drinks
 - Fast food
 - Industrial food Fast food
 - Industrial margarine or other low-quality fats

   Secondly add foods high in magnesium, preferably of organic origin:

 - Every green

 - Green vegetables
 - Fruit, in particular bananas
 - Raw nuts and seeds
 - Wholegrain cereals
 - Raw cocoa powder (it has a lot of magnesium)
 - Black bitter chocolate without sugar

   If you decide to take magnesium in the form of supplements, then let it be a natural marine magnesium (magnesium marine). Such magnesium can be taken any time, it is well absorbed and does not cause side effects. The synthetic chemist Magnesium is best taken only when absolutely necessary, and short courses, as it creates a burden on the liver and digestive system. Such forms as magnesium oxide, magnesium gluconate or carbonate should be avoided. They are poorly digested, heavily loaded with bodies, including the kidneys.

   And forget about crazy idea of calcium! We imposed its postwar rapidly growing dairy industry. Believe me, you have enough calcium.
