    Anybody in a health field or familiar with biology, there is always an opposite to everything in your body. Biceps-triceps. Hot:sweat-cold:shiver. I am POSITIVE that magnesium will clear you out, trust me on this one ;). Calcium is the opposite to magnesium, so Im guessing that it would make you constipated.(not sure on that though)

    From that website:
    I know men have estrogen too.

    As for womens estrogen levels falling off after menopause, what they need to do is start progesterone therapy. While estrogen levels plumit, progesterone levels can go to zero.
    If you guys want a good read, look up where estrogen for HRT comes from. Youd be suprised and disgusted....Its not hard to find.

    edit:// This site says it all pretty clearly http://www.rense.com/general16/estro.htm

    Brownguy, thanks for your input. In the health field, yes. Not employable yet, though. ;) I'm in PA school. I don't know if you know what PA's are...you have them in your military, but your country doesn't have civilian PA's yet.

    The National Osteoporosis Foundation has recommended TumsĀ® as an excellent source of calcium. (from http://www.calciuminfo.com/index.htm)

    Good enough for me. Though I will be sure to keep my daily level below 2500mg. Usually, I take just one antacid a day, and get calcium from other sources for the rest (including my multivitamin). The bottle says you can take up to ten, but that would put you above that limit.

    Glad I came back to read this thread. Lots of good info here!

    Nope, didn't know what PA's were. Had to look it up. Physician Assistant?

    Yes, that's right...also called Physician Associate since the word "assistant" is so misleading sometimes.
