My Rating: 9.5 out of 10
Natural Calm is an effervescent drink that promotes healthy magnesium levels and balances calcium intake—helping you (reportedly) feel less stressed and more relaxed. It comes in a ‘natural’ and ‘raspberry-lemon’ flavor.
A balance must be maintained between the levels of magnesium and calcium in your body—especially at a cellular level. Most often than not, most of us do not get enough magnesium in our diets on a daily basis. Calcium, on the other hand, is a supplement we don’t often lack and get enough through dairy products and other fortified dairy alternatives.
Calcium is responsible for making muscles contract while magnesium helps muscles relax. Calcium is needed in the process of blood clotting while magnesium helps to thin out the blood and let it flow naturally. It is said that both high-calcium diets and stress-filled lives deplete the magnesium in our bodies even further.
How Does Natural Calm Ease Stress?
Let’s face it, we all have stress in our lives – some more than others. Not only does stress wreak havoc on our body but it also increases your blood sugar. When we are under stress, our cells go through a cellular change. Think of it this way, calcium is the “big brother” and magnesium the “little sister”. During times of stress the big brother wants to throw a party inside the house and kick little sister out – leading to magnesium deficiency.
Cellular magnesium deficiency can also express itself as fatigue and low energy; inability to sleep; muscle tension, spasms and cramps; anxiousness and nervousness; headaches; constipation and abnormal heart rhythms. Natural Calm, sourced from the ocean’s rich mineral content, delivers magnesium in a highly absorbable and quick-acting powder form.
Do you need natural calm?
Many of us do not get adequate daily magnesium, including many who already take over the counter supplements. Most often or not it is not the right type of magnesium. There are three reasons for this: the amount of magnesium required by the body is greater than people think; fruits and vegetables have lost mineral content over time due to soil depletion; and some magnesium supplements are poorly absorbed by the body. Magnesium powder is high absorbable by the body. Magnesium depletion can be caused by a number of stresses on the body, among them high blood sugar; mental, emotional and environmental stressors; some drugs (diuretics, antibiotics, oral contraceptives, insulin, cortisone); heavy exercise; diabetes; gastrointestinal disorders; and excess calcium in the diet. Magnesium is similar to water soluble vitamins in that the body with excrete what it doesn’t need (similar to vitamin C).
How do I use it?
Directions for Use (per the manufacturer): Place powder in a glass or mug; add 2–3 oz of hot water. Let it fizz, then stir until dissolved. Fill with 4-6 oz warm or cold water and enjoy. You can also simply add Natural Calm to a glass or bottle of cold water other beverages.
My Recommendations: Start with 1/2 teaspoon mixed with 8 oz cold or hot water. I personally like mine cold. Take at NIGHTTIME! Increase by 1/2 teaspoon nightly until you reach maximum dose of 2 teaspoons. Pay attention to your body and bowel movements and how you feel. If you get loose stools back off on the dose. I personally don’t think this is something that you NEED to take daily, but every other day would be fine.
Magnesium is essential in our overall health and mental well-being. Once I tried this product I was instantly hooked. The price is affordable and the container lasts a LONG time. The taste is a little tart and chalky, but I also tried the ‘natural’ or plain flavor first. The raspberry lemon is too sweet for me, but most people prefer this one over the plain. It’s personal preference.Honestly, this is the only reason I rated this product with a 9.5 instead of a 10 – due to taste.
It works not only for stress relief and relaxation, but also for:
- high blood pressure
- headaches and migraines
- restless leg syndrome
- irregular heart beats
- arthritis, muscle pain, fibromyalgia
- regulate bowel movements
The only way to have The CALM experience is to try it for yourself.
