Sam: One of the signs of calcium deficiency is twitching eyes. [There may also be one or some: increased irritability, muscles can't contract, muscle cramps, nervousness, sleeplessness, rickets, tetany (nervous affection)]. REMEMBER: Calcium must have acid for assimilation. If acid isn't present, calcium will collect in tissue and joints. It requires some fat, but excess fat hinders absorption. Also necessary are Vitamins A, C and D, magnesium, phosphorous and even exercise. Stress, excitement and depression hinder absorption and increases loss of stores. In fact, calcium deficiency can't be corrected with calcium supplements alone. For maximum absorption, zinc and inositol should not be taken at the same time. Excess phosphorus can cause calcium deficiency, and high animal protein diet increases calcium needs. (from "Minerals, a Short Course on Description, Use, Functions, Deficiencies" by Robert D. Gutting) Ok, I would try having some yogurt (I use no fat, plain yogurt with active cultures) mixed with some fruit (strawberries, blueberries, or other berries). Eat this before bedtime, and see if you don't sleep better, too. I'd do this every night for a while, or make it a longstanding ritual. This alone might help, but if not, I'd look into trying to incorporate the other nutrients by foods (preferable) or supplements as needed. You would need to look up this info either online or in a good reference for vitamins and minerals. NOTE: Magnesium is an alkaline element and could neutralize the acid required by the calcium. For this reason, it might be best to take magnesium supplements a few hours after taking calcium. GOOD LUCK!!!
