That was a great post, Alma. Thanks. Since Magnesium is so important in the absorption of Calcium, these are very important foods to know, and particularly for menopausal women. You need a ratio of 2:1 of Ca to Mg to get maximum absorption of Ca to benefit your bone density. Also, for people with a history of kidney stones, balancing your CA/Mg intake helps prevent the formation of more stones. KK
