Almost everyone believes that by taking adequate amounts of calcium one can cure osteoporosis. While calcium is an essential ingredient in bone-making, too much of it can lead to bone spurs and calcification of soft tissue, such as the arteries. In fact, calcification of blood vessels is precisely the same as hardening of the arteries.
If you want to avoid bone loss, you need to remember two things:
1. Take plenty of magnesium
2. Eat alkaline foods
Take plenty of magnesium so that the calcium can be properly assimilated. Magnesium is found in abundance in most nuts (particularly almonds) and dark, leafy greens such as spinach. Taking magnesium supplements orally is somewhat beneficial, but if you take more than about 400 mg/day, you will have a laxative effect. To take more magnesium without bowel problems, soak in a magnesium bath or spray your skin with magnesium oil. Magnesium oil is not really an oil; it just feels like one. You can make it yourself by mixing distilled water with magnesium bath crystals by putting 110 mg of magnesium flakes in 800 ml of distilled water. Then just six pumps on a sprayer on your skin will provide you with approximately 680 mg of magnesium. For other product info: outoftheboxremedies
