Causes of Magnesium Deficiency
The following substances create magnesium deficiencies:
They are so high in calcium and low in magnesium that they tie up large quantities of the body's magnesium stores creating a deficiency!
Some cheese (particularly in pizza) contain 28 parts calcium to one magnesium, and milk and other milk products contain about 10 parts calcium to only one part magnesium.
Remember! Calcium and phosphorus without adequate levels of magnesium will cause calcium salt deposits to form in the body! This tends to harden and clog the arteries, create kidney stones, and promote arthritis, and stiff joints!
Know that magnesium is absolutely essential for calcium to be used properly in the body! The three major hormones that control calcium are all dependent of magnesium!
Vitamin D allows calcium to be absorbed from the intestine. Magnesium is needed for this!
Magnesium keeps PTH (parathyroid hormone) from taking too much calcium out of the bones (major calcium storage site) when the body calls calcium out of the bones to keep the blood calcium levels up.
Magnesium is needed for TCT (thyrocalcitonin) to direct calcium into the bones to make them strong!
