Calcium & Magnesium - Information

Calcium and magnesium – ingenious combination

Calcium is the building material for the body's supporting system – the skeleton. Almost all calcium in the body is bound to bones and teeth. But a small part, barely one percent of the body's calcium, is found in other tissues. There it has the function of "pulling out" if a bone needs to be repaired, so that the blood can coagulate and the like. But it also has a role that is less well known – it is calcium that allows us to contract our muscles. That is, calcium allows us to walk with muscle power, grab the carry handle of the lunch box and a host of other everyday things.

Relieves tense muscles

But like so much else, our muscle work is an interaction. And if calcium helps us contract the muscles, magnesium has the other function - to make the muscles relax after contraction. This is important in case of involuntary muscle tension. Let's take an example of a day in front of the computer: you feel that the muscles in your neck and back have been tense, but you don't want to relax properly. That's where magnesium comes into the picture. With the right level of magnesium in the body, the muscles are helped to get out of the (involuntary but sometimes painful) tense and locked position. However, magnesium has more functions in the body. It is estimated that over 300 different reactions and biological processes in the body are activated by magnesium, including digestion and energy production.

Optimization of calcium absorption

Swedish research at Örebro University has studied the importance of vitamin K (especially vitamin K2) for the distribution of calcium in the body. Simply put, you can say that vitamin K distributes the calcium in the body, a bit like a policeman directing how road users should drive. The main purpose is to remove the calcium from the bloodstream (where it is transported around the body and in unfavorable cases can get stuck). The primary goal of calcium is where it does the most good - to strengthen the bone structure. Vitmain K2 has the ability to strengthen the bones without increasing the mineral content in general.

Bone-strengthening collaboration between K and D

The interaction between vitamin K2 and vitamin D is particularly beneficial. Namely, vitamin D has the ability to increase the availability of calcium in the body. When this ability is combined with vitamin K2's ability to distribute the calcium supply where it is most needed, the combination provides a very beneficial effect on the strength of the skeleton. An extra important feature especially for women who tend to suffer from osteoporosis.

Turmeric complements

The older you get, the more help your joints may need to function properly and maintain their mobility. Turmeric has a documented triple effect on the joints: On the one hand, the joints are protected by the active substance, and on the other hand it supports mobility so that it is maintained. Thirdly, turmeric contributes to general joint health. A strong contributing factor is the documented ability to help the body work to control inflammatory reactions in the body and reduce the inflammation that causes the problems.
