How Do Calcium and Magnesium Help with Fatigue?
"You know, that INSTANT CalMag-C of yours is magic! I hadn’t been taking it for a while but then I was getting very tired on my walks so I took one dose this morning and easily walked a long distance, about three miles.” Mrs N., London, England.
Fatigue is a feeling of excessive tiredness or lethargy, with a desire to rest, perhaps to sleep. Often it causes yawning. There are many reasons for fatigue. Nervous tension brought on by deficiencies of calcium or magnesium is a common cause. Calcium and magnesium soothe and protect the nerves. They are both critical for energy production and proper nerve function. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a disorder characterized by extreme exhaustion, muscle pain, joint pain, sleep problems and a number of other physical symptoms.
Persistent fatigue that is not caused by any underlying illness is usually the result of poor dietary lifestyle and habits, especially the combination of a high-fat and high-refined carbohydrate diet combined with emotional stress. Alcohol, caffeine, drugs, tobacco, stress and incorrect eating habits are all energy-robbers.
Calcium provides energy and plays an important role in protein structuring, as well as magnesium and potassium. Potassium cannot be retained by the cells unless magnesium is adequate. Whenever potassium in the cells is low, the blood sugar is also low. Low blood sugar is also a common cause of fatigue. Because magnesium is necessary to keep potassium in muscle cells, similar low blood sugar levels occur when magnesium is deficient. Without adequate magnesium, the potassium leaves the cells, creating in them an artificial potassium deficiency. Potassium is essential for energy to be produced. Magnesium is needed to balance with calcium.
Although 99% of the calcium in the body is in the bones and teeth, symptoms resulting from an undersupply to the nerves and soft tissues can make life quite unbearable. For example, calcium aids in the transportation of nerve impulses. When this mineral is undersupplied, nerves become tense, and you become grouchy. The calcium-deficient person wastes energy, and his nervous tension and inability to relax induce fatigue out of all proportion to the work he actually does.
Magnesium has been proven effective with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). People with CFS have low red blood cell magnesium levels. A recent double-blind study was conducted on CFS patients and magnesium supplements in the United Kingdom. The researchers concluded that 80% of the patients receiving magnesium reported "significantly improved energy levels, better emotional state, and less pain". Both calcium and magnesium in the proper ratio and the correct pH balance are known to relieve joint pain, muscle pain and soreness, nervous tension, fatigue, help with sleep problems and much more!
