Magnesium deficiency is common in America. It is associated with migraines, photo-sensitivity and sound sensitivity. Add magnesium. Magnesium deficiency is highly correlated with migraines. Evidently, the consumption of calcium without Magnesium can cause an imbalance. Most multivitamins do not have significant amounts of Magnesium.

I had always heard that chocolate was high in Mg, but didn't realize how *healthy* it was. Apparently, many women crave chocolate during PMS and this may be why. Oh, I just read that magnesium levels are at their lowest during menstruation. Then I realized that it is cocoa powder that is high in magnesium, rather than chocolate bars.

Calcium supplementation alone, without magnesium in balance, leads to brittle bones and magnesium deficiency.

Magnesium is needed for calcium absorption. Without enough magnesium, calcium can collect in the soft tissues and cause one type of arthritis. Not only does calcium collect in the soft tissues of arthritics, it is poorly, if at all, absorbed into their blood and bones. But taking more calcium is not the answer; it only amplifies the problem. In fact, excessive calcium intake and insufficient magnesium can contribute to both of these diseases. Magnesium taken in proper dosages can solve the problem of calcium deficiency.

When calcium is elevated in the blood it stimulates the secretion of a hormone called calcitonin and suppresses the secretion of the parathyroid hormone (PTH). These hormones regulate the levels of calcium in our bones and soft tissues and are, therefore, directly related to both osteoporosis and arthritis. PTH draws calcium out of the bones and deposits it in the soft tissues, while calcitonin increases calcium in our bones and keeps it from being absorbed in our soft tissues. Sufficient amounts of magnesium determine this delicate and important balance.

Because magnesium suppresses PTH and stimulates calcitonin it helps put calcium into our bones, preventing osteoporosis, and helps remove it from our soft tissues eliminating some forms of arthritis.
