The 2-to-1 calcium-to-magnesium ratio (2:1) was
first suggested by the French magnesium researcher
Jean Durlach5 as a high limit not to be exceeded, when
he warned against excessive calcium relative to magnesium
intakes; that is, one’s calcium intake from all
sources including food, water and supplements should
not exceed one’s total magnesium intake by more than
2 parts calcium to 1 part magnesium on a weight basis.
As a cholesterol treatment, niacin has strong evidence. Several studies have shown that it can boost levels of good HDL cholesterol and lower triglycerides as well or better than some prescription drugs. Niacin also modestly lowers bad LDL cholesterol. It's often prescribed in combination with statins for cholesterol control, such as Crestor, Lescol, or Lipitor.
