At the biochemical level, magnesium and calcium are known to act antagonistically towards each other. For example, many enzymes whose activities critically depend on sufficiency of intracellular magnesium, especially transphosphorylases, will be detrimentally affected by small increments in levels of cellular calcium ions. Growth of cells, cell division cycle progress and intermediary metabolism are also absolutely dependent on the bioavailability of magnesium, which can be compromised if… CONTINUE READING
