Deficient intake of minerals;

An excess can be toxic in calcium, magnesium and phosphorus;

Good combinations of minerals and vitamins;

In the case of deficit contribution:

1. Insufficient calcium intake can cause pain and muscle cramps.
2. It is sometimes at the origin of rickets, osteopathic or osteoporosis.
3. It may also increase the risk of tooth decay, high blood pressure, especially during pregnancy, and cataracts.
4. In children, there may be a slowdown in growth and behavioral disorder.
5. Magnesium deficiency can manifest as fatigue, lack of appetite, insomnia, apathy or cramps.
6. Involuntary contractions of muscles and arterial spasms can occur and cause an increase in blood pressure.
7. The weakened immune system and allergic disorders are possible.
8. Phosphorus deficiency is very rare, and can cause muscle weakness.
9. Loss of appetite, increased susceptibility to infection and anemia.

Calcium and magnesium:

A supplement may be useful in the cases:
  • If the water in your area is low mineral content or if you drink bottled water low in minerals.
  • If your diet includes plenty of refined products and some dairy products.
  • If you drink alcohol regularly.
  • If you submit risk of osteoporosis.
  • During pregnancy and breastfeeding period.
  • If you take birth control or if you are on hormone replacement therapy.
  • If you take diuretics or preparations of antacids.

An excess of minerals can be toxic:

  • Excess of calcium is rapidly eliminated in the urine and feces, but it is combined with a magnesium deficiency, the calcium can be deposited on the soft tissue, particularly the kidneys.
  • In the long term, too large intake of calcium can cause kidney’s stones, constipation, abdominal pain, loss of appetite and nausea.
  • It could also promote atherosclerosis and lipid deposits on the artery walls.
  • When in doubt, it is best not to absorb high doses of calcium in extension manner, unless it is not for specific medical reasons.
  • Magnesium excess is rare because its elimination at the urine and the stool is very fast.
  • Certain toxicity is however not excluded in case of excess of magnesium supplements due to injections, especially if there is also a significant deficiency in calcium.
  • The symptoms are muscle weakness and fatigue.
  • The phosphorus is not toxic by itself, but excessive intake may promote the onset of symptoms related to calcium deficiency, including osteoporosis.
  • Too low presence of calcium to phosphorus also increases the risk of high blood pressure and colon cancer.

Good combinations:

  • A balanced diet should provide as much calcium as phosphorus, and about half as much magnesium.
  • Calcium absorption is favored by the presence of vitamins A and D and iron, while its availability in the body is reinforced by the presence of vitamin D, unsaturated fats and manganese.
  • The magnesium is most effective in the presence of vitaminB6, C, D, and protein.
  • To be well metabolized, phosphorus needs vitamin A and D, iron, manganese, protein and unsaturated fatty acids.
  • In practice, calcium and magnesium additions have to be taken together.
  • The dolomite and ashes of bones are rich in minerals and seem to be absorbed by the body, as well as calcium from dairy products.
