So many people are anxious or stressed. These can be symptoms of a calcium or magnesium deficiency. The stress glands of your body – the adrenals – are dependent on minerals to function properly, two of which are calcium and magnesium.
Stress and Magnesium
“Stress is so prevalent in our daily life that we have become desensitized to it and the message it is trying to give us, which is to slow down.
Anxiety is a chemical reaction created when the adrenals glands respond to a stressful event, such as low blood sugar, by releasing adrenaline. Adrenaline is very useful if you’re trying to escape from a stressful situation because it stimulates the fight-or-flight response: the heart rate starts pumping faster; digestion slows down; energy stores are released from the liver and made available to the heart, lungs, and muscles; and the muscles of the arms and legs are activated.
All of these responses require magnesium. So each time we experience any kind of stress, our magnesium stores are tapped to create energy. This magnesium depletion itself stresses the body, which can result in panic attacks, which equals yet more stress.
Not only do our overworked adrenals cause magnesium depletion, but even more adrenaline is released under stress when magnesium levels are low in the body, leaving people feeling irritable, nervous, edgy, or even ready to explode. It’s the proverbial Catch-22. To put an end to anxiety, magnesium needs to be replaced
During stress reactions, calcium is also required to stimulate the release of adrenaline, but calcium excess causes a flood of adrenaline. However, having sufficient magnesium will buffer excess calcium and keep it within normal levels, limiting the stress response. Magnesium is important because it naturally diminishes the excitablility of the nervous system and lowers the level of calcium around nerve cells. This function of magnesium is also significant in heart disease and other stress-induced illness.”

We made this product in the exact ratio required for the body to use it. Two parts calcium gluconate (also a natural painkiller) with one part magnesium. Nature likes balance so we made sure we went according to her rules. In addition to the proper balance of minerals, it is also important that they have the proper pH balance and that’s why we added the vitamin C. In this way, your body can absorb and use the calcium and magnesium. In fact, your body uses it instantly as it ready for absorption.
“Instant CalMag-C became my lifeline in a time of severe anxiety and uncertainty about my future. During this period I started using Instant CalMag-C and can state without doubt that I probably would not have survived without it. The benefits, physically and mentally, were so amazing that I have become a sworn proponent of the product and have put a number of friends, family and employees on it, with consistently great success.
“I even have my 11 and 13-year-old children on it as well. The younger one is hyperactive at times, which can put additional strain on me. This has eased. Since we have had Instant CalMag-C in our household my children come and ask me for it and you couldn’t ask for a more peaceful environment.
“My 13-year-old daughter has been promoting its benefits to the girls in her netball team and I now get mothers calling me the night before matches to remind me to send some for their children too!”
