Don't take magnesium and calcium together, that's if you supplement calcium. I don't.
I disagree with this statement.
Almost all dark green vegetables contain both calcium and magnesium, and most times (in nature) copper and zinc are also found together.
Calcium cannot be absorbed without magnesium, and if you don't supplement with calcium you will end up with arthritis, osteoperosis, hypertention, kidney stones, bone and heel spurs, calcium deposits, gingivitis, low back pain, cramps and twitches, etc...
Taking this or that is fine, but won't prevent deficiency in what you don't take. Therefore, besides a good diet, you need all essential vitamins and minerals. (and fatty acids)
