Magnesium and Calcium

To be included in this database, a food must contain both magnesium and calcium.

Magnesium is a mineral that's crucial to the body's function. Magnesium helps keep blood pressure normal, bones strong, and the heart rhythm steady.

Too much magnesium from food does not pose a health risk in healthy individuals because the kidneys eliminate excess amounts in the urine. However, high doses of magnesium from dietary supplements or medications often result in diarrhea that can be accompanied by nausea and abdominal cramping.

Very large doses of magnesium-containing laxatives and antacids (typically providing more than 5,000 mg/day magnesium) have been associated with magnesium toxicity. Symptoms of magnesium toxicity can include hypotension, nausea, vomiting, facial flushing, retention of urine, ileus, depression, and lethargy before progressing to muscle weakness, difficulty breathing, extreme hypotension, irregular heartbeat, and cardiac arrest.

The RDA for magnesium is approximately 410 mg for adult males and 315 mg for adult females.

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body.

Ninety-nine percent of the body's calcium supply is stored in the bones and teeth where it supports their structure and function. Bone itself undergoes continuous remodeling, with constant resorption and deposition of calcium into new bone. The balance between bone resorption and deposition changes with age. Bone formation exceeds resorption in periods of growth in children and adolescents, whereas in early and middle adulthood both processes are relatively equal. In aging adults, particularly among postmenopausal women, bone breakdown exceeds formation, resulting in bone loss that increases the risk of osteoporosis over time.

The two main forms of calcium in supplements are carbonate and citrate. Calcium carbonate is more commonly available and is both inexpensive and convenient. Due to its dependence on stomach acid for absorption, calcium carbonate is absorbed most efficiently when taken with food, whereas calcium citrate is absorbed equally well with or without food.

The RDA for calcium is approximately 1,000 mg for adult males and 1,100 mg for adult females.

Foods Richest in Magnesium and Calcium Combination

Ounce for ounce, the foods in list below contain the highest content of both magnesium and calcium.
The Magnesium + Calcium Score takes into account not only the absolute content of magnesium and calcium in a food but also their respective RDA and approximates the multiples of RDA of magnesium and calcium in 100 g (3.5 oz) of a food item.

Note that many of these foods are fortified breakfast cereals.
