calcium magnesium ratio
I have carpal tunnel and extreme myofascial tightness in my calves and am going to try a magnesium remedy.
I understand I need twice as much calcium as magnesium.
I will work up to 950 mg of magnesium.
So: how much calcium do I need? 1800 mg?
Can you OD on calcium?
Should calcium be taken on an empty stomach or is it also absorbed with food?
My mother told me it's good to take calcium before bed as it's absorbed overnight. True?
How much calcium can the body absorb at any one time?
Thank you, Kerri.
*the fibrocomplex (metagenics.com) has thiamin 50mg, b6 50mg, magnesium 150mg, malic acid 600, manganese 5. I also take vitamin D 4000 IUs (Carlson), C 500-1000mg, E 400mg. The calcium supplement I use is Caltrate.
Any concerns/comments on my regimen? Thanks!!
Oh! I also take EPA fish oil 500mg 2x per day. Since I developed the calf problem, I've just increased to 500mg 4x per day.
I am 41, weigh 125 and exercise a LOT--I'm sure I have magnesium deficiency via sweating a lot.
