Original Formula Colloidal Minerals
|T. J. Clark Catalyzed Calcium/Magnesium
FormulaTM contains our
exclusive catalyst, PolyfloraminTM,
to optimize your body's ability to absorb and utilize the calcium, magnesium
and potassium compounds found in our special formula.*
The importance of the mineral calcium in your daily diet cannot be overstressed. Calcium is needed for many body function -- nearly every body cell relies on calcium to properly function, including cells in the heart, nerves and muscles. Calcium builds and maintains bones and teeth, regulates heart rhythm, eases insomnia, assists in normal blood clotting, aids in normal kidney function and lowers blood pressure. Ninety-nine percent of the calcium in the body is stored in bones and teeth; the remaining 1% is taken by the blood and soft tissues, and is essential for life and health. Without this 1% of calcium, the muscles won't contract correctly, blood won't clot, and the nerves won't carry messages. Studies show increasing evidence that calcium intake during growth increases bone mass.
Calcium levels in the blood must stay constant in order for the body to function properly, which means that calcium must be consumed throughout the day; otherwise, the blood will "steal" calcium from the bones to maintain the level it requires. The bones continue to grow more dense until approximately age 30, provided enough calcium has been consumed, after which a gradual decline begins to occur. And while a person's genetic makeup plays a major role in determining the size and density of bones, lifestyle is also important. Regular physical activity and a calcium-rich diet are the best preventative measures, although there is no guarantee that regular exercise and a calcium-rich diet will prevent osteoporosis. Smoking and consuming too much alcohol and caffeine also have a negative impact on bone health, especially when coupled with a low calcium intake.
Osteoporosis, characterized by calcium-depleted bones so fragile that they break easily, is believed to affect one in four women and one in eight men over the age of 50. Aging causes loss of bone mass, and whether you develop osteoporosis later in life depends on how big and dense the bones become during development.
Calcium alone is insufficient to maintain a healthy body; magnesium and potassium are also needed to assist calcium in its essential functions.*
Magnesium is considered to be the anti-stress mineral and works synergistically with calcium. Both calcium and magnesium are present in all cells, particularly in heart and artery muscle cells. While calcium stimulates muscle fibers to tense and contract, magnesium stimulates muscles to loosen and relax, and regulates the amount of calcium that enters the cells. Needed for muscle relaxation and calm nerves, magnesium is part of over 300 enzymes and thus required for almost every imaginable aspect of health, especially energy metabolism. Magnesium is concentrated in the brain, heart, liver, and kidney. Without the balancing influence of magnesium, calcium will cause arteries to tense up, particularly the ones to the heart and brain, constricting the flow of blood, which can result in high blood pressure, heart attacks, stroke, and migraine headaches.
Magnesium deficiency, a common occurrence constituting a serious threat, is characterized by asthma; loss of appetite, growth failure, osteoporosis; leg/muscle cramps/menstrual cramps/sensitive to the effects of stress; fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS); nervousness; insomnia; confusion; irritability, easily angered; depression; PMS, dysmenorrhea; nerve conduction; heart disease, cardiovascular disease, acute myocardial infarction, angina, cardiac arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy, congestive heart failure, heart disturbances, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, intermittent claudication, mitral valve prolapse; low HDL-cholesterol; diabetes; stroke; hypertension; irregular heart beat, heart attack; migraine headaches; pregnancy-related seizures; kidney stones; glaucoma; hearing loss; cancer; fibromyalgia, eosinophilia-syalgia syndrome; and complications of pregnancy such as toxemia and premature delivery. The average American magnesium intake is well below the RDA standards because of our lifestyles, especially the consumption of carbonated beverages, which removes magnesium from the body. Food and herb sources that are rich in magnesium include kelp, almonds, blackberry molasses, whole grains, and green vegetables.
Potassium is important for a strong healthy nervous system, maintaining a regular heart beat and proper muscle contraction. Potassium nourishes the heart, kidneys, pancreas, muscles and nerves. It works with sodium to regulate the body's water balance. Potassium is important to chemical reactions inside cells. It also controls the flow of nutrients through cell walls, which decreases as we age and may account for circulatory damage and weakness in the elderly. Potassium also aids in transmission of electrochemical impulses needed by the human nervous system. Potassium is also needed to maintain a stable blood pressure level. Potassium deficiency can cause: Dry skin; acne; chills; confusion; constipation; depression; diarrhea; edema; headaches; heart beat problems; high cholesterol levels; low blood pressure; muscle fatigue; nervousness; nausea/vomiting; poor reflexes; respiratory problems; salt retention problems; thirst disorders; and weakness. Diets rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grain cereals may reduce the risk of stroke, especially in persons with high blood pressure, which appears due to the high potassium content of these diets.
All three of these vital nutrients, calcium, magnesium and potassium, work together to contract and relax muscles, maintain a healthy nervous system, and nourish vital organs such as the heart, kidneys, and pancreas.* Without the balancing influence provided by calcium, magnesium and potassium, damage can occur to the arteries, especially those leading to the heart and brain, constricting the flow of blood to these organs. The result can be high blood pressure, heart attacks, stroke and migraine headaches.
