Excerpt from the Massage Today article noted below:
"Magnesium is responsible for allowing calcium into the cell when a muscle needs to contract or a nerve needs to fire. Calcium helps it contract. Magnesium helps it relax. Magnesium is responsible for pushing the calcium out of the cell when the job is done. This allows the cell to return to normal and await its next command. If there is insufficient magnesium, calcium enters the cell and never leaves."
And what does the calcium do when it does not leave? ----- Makes us creaky and crackly where we should not be. Takes up space, cluttering where other things that need to move around have less room to do that. Calcifies us?....stiffens, hardens? Are you seeing it?
My coffee pot will eventually cease to work if I let the calcium deposits build up in it.....AND ALTHOUGH our bodies (Thank God) are more forgiving than my coffee pot... keeping the calcium moving in and out and working for us is so much better than letting it accumulate and turn us "stone-like."
Seriously, magnesium and fascia....two things to consider together.
