According to Dr. Gruver, "We are calcium happy in this society. And I'm not saying we don't need it. But I think magnesium is more important and I keep a giant bottle of it in the house. It's helpful for muscle spasms, headaches, menstrual and muscle cramps, mood, sleep and PMS. And we need it for the calcium to be absorbed. Who can ask for anything more? "
