257942257942B00125ZCWIA2ZJ07CLYM9R06paconj0341331424000good productCalm is one of those products you must research before buying and using. If you use it for calming effect, I have not realized it. I have been using as a laxative, it is magnesium citrate after all. It works as a an intestinal irritant and one should be aware of its side effects. Again, do your own research before using.
257959257959B00125ZCWIA2N3N439PRGV3IGregory Bravo374651268179200This one supplement has changed my life!!!!!I eat well. I read a lot of research on health. I'm a Medline junkie. I've tried a lot of different supplements in my time--- probably 40 or 50 different things over the years--vitamins, minerals, herbs. Some of them made me kind of ill, some had a minor positive effect. (For example, I noticed that ginkgo actually did help me think more clearly, at least a little bit.)

None of them, however, made a MAJOR positive impact on my life.

That is, until Natural Calm.

This miraculous substance has improved the quality of my life dramatically!

Here are the things this supplement has helped with:

Sleep--- Basically cured my occasional insomnia, and gives me a deep restful sleep every night.
Stress-- I now feel spectacularly relaxed. Also increased my ability to deal with difficult "crisis" situations.
Mood--- Made me generally happier.
Decreased muscle cramping and soreness.
Improved gums and teeth.
Improved hair loss.
Improved digestion and transit time.

Yeah, hard to believe it cured so many things, right?? Me too!

But out of all the things I have ever taken, this is the ONE THING that I would NEVER be without. It has made that important an improvement in my life. It is almost like a miracle. Really.

There is a huge amount of research on the need in the body for more magnesium than Americans usually consume. Especially important is the ratio of Calcium to Magnesium you consume. In America this ratio is about 4 to 1. Ideally it should be around 1 to 1 or 1.5 to 1. I have settled on a ratio of about 1200 mg Ca and 800 mg Mg per day. (Try "The Magnesium Factor" by Margaret Seelig or "The Magnesium Miracle" by Carolyn Dean here on Amazon if you want more science of magnesium.)

I highly recommend that everyone try this supplement, at least for a week or two. You probably won't need that long. I noticed an improvement in two days. A MAJOR and IMMEDIATE improvement.

If you try it, I'd be curious as to your results. Leave a message in the comments section of my post, if you want.

Here's wishing you great health!

257960257960B00125ZCWIA3Z1AUA74DP1NL. Snyder526651218672000Excellent to relieve muscle, joint pain, sleeplessnessMy 80 year old Mom suffered from excruciating back and muscle pain. When I took her to see an MD specializing in pain relief, he recommended she try using CALM first, stating many of his patients found significant pain relief by addressing their magnesium deficiency by taking CALM. After she successfully reduced the pain using CALM as part of the regimen prescribed by her MD, my husband and I started using CALM for our muscle and joint pains, (61 and 58) and also found relief from pain; we accidently discovered it promotes a good night's sleep when we missed taking it one night and did not sleep as well. All of us now use CALM daily and stockpile a 3 month supply!

Imagine my surprise to see a bottle twice the size at a lower price. I use it in hot water like tea. The raspberry-lemon flavor is very pleasant.

257961257961B00125ZCWIA30QOW3RYHGQA3Weimamom303751245974400A fanOk, this stuff is the cure for family visits lol. I only had this stuff a week or so before going home to visit my very large and loud family that although I love dearly, can drive me crazy when it's unheard of to stay in a hotel.
I drank this in the evenings and it is like it melted everything away including the anxiety of staying with my mother and dealing with her obsession of cleaning with her new mini sweeper, going here and there to see this and that person, having to of course spend extra money that I normally don't, AND having my Weimaraner at my moms hearing her gripe about what his claws will do to her wood floor. I know, too much information but seriously....I generally crack and I held it together this time. I give some of the credit to this stuff. Its taste is pleasant and it is easy for an on the go status like what I was.
I recommend this to anyone who has a lot on their plate, especially if it is temporary and you aren't used to dealing with it all on a regular basis. That kind of stress can lead to a meltdown! I usually get sick with a really bad cold or such within a week of being back in my own environment but this time I did not. I wonder....well, I didn't have as much stress knocking my immune system down to germ take over levels maybe. Either way, I like it and I am a gonna keep it! In fact, I am going home again in 3 days....Calm, don't fail me now! :D
257946257946B00125ZCWIA12B2H42QXCG3GMandala3931239408000Tastes horrible but I think it helped.I was told to use this product for tight muscles. It seemed to help with that. It tastes so bad, I have to put it in juice to hide the taste.
257962257962B00125ZCWIA3AAZCSMJHVGF1LeeAnn "Amazon Junkie"111251240012800Blood Pressure is downMy blood pressure had been in the prehypertensive (140s/90s) for several weeks.... my diet was pretty decent (5-6 frutis/veggies, good oil, etc.) and I walked 3-4 miles/day, so I was surprised.
Before going to a doctor for meds, decided to do some resesarch on natural blood pressure and magnesium came up as a suggestion. I settled on this on on a friend's advice. Take it 2x/day. My blood pressure has been 105-120/70s for the past month. Maybe it's a coincidence, but I'm happy.
257963257963B00125ZCWIA3TR1OAI4BZDZJRon Z172051305936000Great Product In Wrong ContainerUndoubtedly, the purchase and use of stool softeners would plummet if everyone, including physicians, considered magnesium.

Fact: An insufficient amount of magnesium in the body is a primary cause of constipation and hemorrhoids, yet most physicians unwittingly recommend stool softeners.

Fact: By taking your measure of Natural CALM daily your constipation will quickly subside.

Friends, before you devour any more medications why not try a natural remedy?

Natural CALM is an easy-to-assimilate powder that when mixed with water becomes effervescent. More effective and absorptive than tablet form, Natural CALM is the best selling ionic magnesium supplement to be found in health food stores to date. Choose natural or one of four flavored varieties. It's all the same healthful Natural CALM.

Magnesium is also attributed to curing or moderating all of the following conditions: leg cramps, headaches, hair loss, insomnia, high blood pressure, nervousness, muscular disorders and depression. That is not to say that any or all of these conditions are apt to be remedied in each and every case. Pardon me, but I had to laugh when reading one reviewer's comment that said the product helped her leg cramps but didn't do anything for her sleeplessness. She readily awarded the product a mediocre three stars.

Holistic alternatives are of utmost importance, especially--especially as we advance in years. I highly recommend this gluten-free product. You might be surprised at how little you require. Starting with half a teaspoon daily you increase or decrease as might be necessary. Soon you discover your proper dosage.

Directions are unclear as to the amount of water to be used: "Place powder in a glass or mug," it says. "Add 2-3 oz of hot water. Let it fizz, then stir until dissolved. Fill with warm or cold water and enjoy. You can also simply add Natural CALM to a glass or bottle of cold water."

Got it? Neither do I. It's confusing at best. Just how much water to how much powder? It seems that they leave this for us to decide.

Then there's the problem with this two-inch wide container. The size and shape may be suitable for stacking on store shelves, but not for home use. You need something wider. Consequently, I transfer the contents into something more sensible. Now I can utilize a measuring spoon, a measuring spoon for the sake of accuracy.

Consistent results are what we desire and consistent results require accurate measurements. My dosage being precisely half a teaspoon, I use water (at room temperature) in one measured cup. Directions advise us to heat the water, but I myself do not find that extra chore necessary. I stir and let it settle. Then down the hatch.

Need I mention that Natural CALM contains no yeast, dairy, egg, soy, wheat, sugar, starch, preservatives, artificial color or flavors? No fructose added. For further information call customer service at (866) 416-9216.

Take charge of your health. Live life to the fullest.
257964257964B00125ZCWIA1LSZETYVUCIOWLucille G. Hale "gramma"202451209945600Natural calm PlusI have been taking Natural Calm Plus for about 2 years. I have a milk intolerance and IBS. this gives me calcium and vitamin D, Plus helps my IBS constipation problem. . I helps to relax and make you sleep better.
257947257947B00125ZCWIAYUG441AEDXFQP from SC41111314662400DissapointedI read all the reviews before buying this product. I can not tell a difference by taking this supplement. I think it may have caused upset stomach. For the caling effect I have noticed nothing. I have been taking a week and a half and will allow more time
257965257965B00125ZCWIA1C1R6922S2V5YA. Clark161951275955200aptly named productHave been using Natural Calm for 6 years. Highly absorbable form of magnesium helps with nutritional balance and is a quick-acting, gentle muscle relaxer/tension tamer. If you take calcium supplements or eat a lot of dairy, you might consider supplementing with magnesium. Calcium is used in contracting muscles; magnesium is used in relaxing them. If you have a lot of calcium in your system and not enough magnesium, those muscles can't completely relax! My old massage therapist gave this to every client before his/her massage; she said she didn't have to work as hard to relax stubborn, tense muscles after folks had taken this. Hubby takes it on business trips to keep all systems balanced and avoid tension headaches from Atlanta airport! This is hands-down the best price I've seen for the product, and it was delivered to my door. Can't beat that.
257966257966B00125ZCWIA3DQWFWINN3V5ADavid A. Lessnau131541217376000Very Good Source of MagnesiumIf you're taking a lot of calcium, you'll need additional magnesium. This Natural Calm powder is a very good source of that magnesium. My wife is taking calcium and was suffering from severe feet and leg cramps (especially at night). A little research pointed to magnesium to help with this. As with calcium, the citrate form is best for absorption and that's what this Natural Calm provides (magnesium citrate). After just a couple of days of use, the cramping seems to have disappeared. One additional benefit is that certain digestive end processes seem to have smoothed out, too.

I have only two problems with the product. First, this particular flavor of Natural Calm neither tastes nor smells all that great: it's sickly sweet. However, there is a non-flavored variety which is great (Natural Vitality - Natural Calm, oz, 16 powder). Also, it would have been very nice if the bottle had included a little plastic teaspoon scoop for measuring the dosage. I've subtracted one star from my rating for those. But, still, I rate this at a Very Good four stars out of five.
257967257967B00125ZCWIA74Z12LIJZEGSD. C. Lawson "FlowerChild~FreeBird"101151299542400Great SupplementTHis is so good for you and It tastes good too.
If you put it with orange juice you can't even tell the difference. definitely a must buy. Great for getting greatly needed nutrients in reluctant kids AND adults.

257968257968B00125ZCWIA3ACCH1UM0OKVUviperron7751335571200viperronI've been using this product for about 2 years to treat skipped heart beats which I have suffered with for about 4 decades with zero help from the medical community. It has been one of the only supplements I've tried in that same period that has lived up to it's promises. I also have had problems with constipation for most of my life ( I'm sure it's because of my terrible diet which includes lots of sugar) and it also totally solved that problem. I would like you to know that I own no stock in the company, I do not know anyone in the company,I do not sell this product, and I do not have a dog in the fight however I would hate to think that I could no longer be able to get this product. After using several different types of magnesium I proclaim this to be the very best with no one in close 2nd place. I will tell you it takes a small amount of effort to figure out how much your body needs, I usually take about a teaspoonfull a day mixed in a bottle of plain water and I drink it though out the day and I do this about 3 times a day. This product has litterally changed my life and I think I could write a small book about it. I've told numerous people about it and it's a shame there are so many scams in the world that we as a people are so sceptical and that when a great product comes along we sometimes ignore it..
257969257969B00125ZCWIA27E9UIO2CAOT1gissella7751330646400Wow.I have suffered with insomnia for the past 10 years. This product cured it. I take it about 15 minutes before bedtime and fall asleep almost as soon as my head hits the pillow! Wake up feeling great. Why don't doctor's give us this information??
257970257970B00125ZCWIAYNIT5FYOCH30Benjamin M Dotte7731328832000Wish I could take thisI have a lot of trouble getting to sleep at night, and I have suffered from migraines for most of my life. This product seemed like the perfect solution to both problems.

For the sleep issue, I have never found anything that even comes close. I actually fell asleep, shortly after going to bed, with ease. This was really an incredible change for the better.

Unfortunately, I discovered that my migraines got worse when I was taking this. Not just a little bit worse, MUCH worse. It was as if the worst part of the migraine got extended much longer than normal. It was to the point that I had to be driven home from work and ended up in the ER in one case while I was taking this (the normal dose recommended on the label). This was the first and only time I have ever been to the ER for a migraine in 20+ years of getting migraines.

Even after that incident I really wanted to continue at least with a small dose before bed. I tried this on and off for several weeks, but unfortunately it consistently aggravated my headaches the next day anytime I took it.

I've noticed other forms of Magnesium also cause headache issues for me, which is odd since it is supposed to help prevent them. So, hopefully this reaction is fairly individual to me. But the lack of much of any negative reviews for this product compelled me to write a review. Evidently, not everybody reacts well to it (but I do really, really wish I could take it for the sleep benefit.)
257948257948B00125ZCWIA8GLWWOM0OMFIStyleeC112411282089600Beware: 8 oz only!!!The weight of this product was not specified by the seller and the picture is too blurry to see the details. The product description says 10+ oz, but it's only shipping weight. The actual bottle you get is only 8 oz.

I was very disappointed when the product arrived and saw the tiny little bottle. Won't purchase this item again.
257949257949B00125ZCWIA2L93QHTY267GTkarenso10431343174400not as impressedas the rest... Have been taking the product for over 3 weeks. Didn't notice any improvement or change in anything, and it tastes AWFUL>
257950257950B00125ZCWIA2TKXUCU8ZCA61liz0421342656000YUCKI bought this product, based on many positive reviews, and was not satisfied. I got the original flavor, which I followed the directions while preparing it. First of all, it is vile. My husband tried it also and agreed it is like the taste of acid, and burns the throat just as bad. I purchased this in hopes of getting some relief from my anxiety and also to relieve my IBS. To put it nicely I'm lucky to "poo" twice a week, but when I'm stressed it is non stop. So every week is different. This product boasts its ability to regulate you, as well as to relieve stress and anxiety. I have not found this to be true so far. The taste is hard enough to get over, but it is not the worst part. After drinking it my stomach fills with air to the point that it is painful. I still can't "poo" but my husband will not be pleased tonight while I fart all over him in my sleep. It sounds funny, but it sucks. I gave it two stars only because I seem to be the exception rather than the rule. I am disappointed.
257951257951B00125ZCWIA17R1ETU3HI9TJcorky212921318291200Nothing great day 2I bought this product once before and took for about a week. I did not notice it helping with sleep. I continued to wake every night. I also don't notice that it calms me down. I just had a screaming match after taking 1 teaspoon in hot water and hour before. Maybe it takes a longer time to notice? I didn't notice anything the last time either but I will continue to take it as I need magnesium.
257952257952B00125ZCWIA3DN9L5KILW0HPHealth Nut "Health Nut"21221279929600does not work-causes loose bowlesI have been taking this for several days on the advice of my acupuncturist and it has not had any effect on my chronic muscle pain and also has caused me to have loose bowls when going number 2 in the bathroom.

does anybody know of a product that can help get lactic acid build up out of muscles?
257953257953B00125ZCWIA3US1QSEMTLW18L. Betz "Lauren"21521311638400Not sure bottle was sealedI srewed the top off the bottle without removing the hard plastic pull ring. Makes me wonder if it's safe to use. There is not other covering and I put the cap back on and it looks like it's never been opened! Since it's a powered supplement this doesnt look safe. I gave it a two because of the seal and the fact that I'll probably have to return it.
257954257954B00125ZCWIAXERH6EMBR7MCmanoka54021219449600Chemical supplements should be taken based on the advice of a qualified health care providerAs I have problems with sleep at night and tried all sorts of things which are most commonly recommended to improve it, I tought I try this well rated product. I tried it in all the various recommended dosages. But it didn't make the slightest difference for me. Thus I guess that it probably only works if the cause of the unrest is a magnesium deficiency.
Reportedly:
"With supplements, overdose is possible, however, particularly in people with poor renal function; occasionally, with use of high cathartic doses of magnesium salts, severe hypermagnesemia has been reported to occur even without renal dysfunction".
"Safety Issues
The US government has set the following upper limits for use of magnesium supplements:
Children
1-3 years: 65 mg
4-8 years: 110 mg
Adults: 350 mg
Pregnant or Nursing Women: 350 mg"
"It has been called nature's calcium channel blocker."
"Magnesium assists in calcium uptake, but it also competes with dietary calcium for the same absorption site in the intestine. Excessive dietary calcium (or phosphorus) is much more likely to block magnesium absorption than vice- versa in the typical American diet. Magnesium absorption is also inhibited by excessive dietary fat, phosphate, lactose, phytates and oxalates which form insoluble compounds with magnesium. Magnesium is also lost in diarrhea, long term use of diuretics, excessive sugar intake and protein malnutrition...
... there are lower levels of minerals in food today due to depletion of the soil in modern farming methods. (23) Modern methods of milling, processing and the preservation of food cause nutrient losses, eg 85% of magnesium is removed from whole wheat in the milling."
Thus it is advisable to consult a qualified health care provider if a deficiency is suspected.
It's usually best to avoid deficiencies by a healthy diet: "Kelp is very high in magnesium, as are whole grains, almonds, and cashews..."
257955257955B00125ZCWIA1HEI1CQHCNB0VMrs. Curious9951333756800The Best Supplement EVER!!!When I read one of the reviews that stated that this supplement changed their life, I was immediately excited because this supplement has changed my life as well! I started taking this supplement as a part of my diet plan (Ideal Protein). I took it to help me with bowel movements. Lucky for me, not only did it improve my bowel movements, it fixed my insomnia problem. I had insomnia and could not fall into deep sleep for years. Within 2 weeks of taking this supplement, I was sleeping like a new born baby! In addition, I became more relaxed and my anxiety completely disappeared!! It did not stop there...my menstrual cycle is regular now and I no longer have muscle twitches. TOTALLY CHANGED MY LIFE!

I was soo excited about the improvement in the quality of my life, so I quickly spread the news to all my family and friends. I worked like wonders for all of my family members. The results from my friends was a mixed bag. I think that for the people that have a true magnesium deficiency, this is a miracle supplement. For those that may not have a true magnesium deficiency, this may not be the magic bullet for them. I hope that this review was helpful. I was compelled to spread the word about this supplement because it has truly changed my life!!!
257956257956B00125ZCWIA3GF6WXRV7YKQ7nem9931278374400Worked on leg cramps, no effect on sleepSince starting this powder about 6 weeks ago, I haven't noticed any effect on my sleep, but the number of times I have been woken up by leg cramps (a.k.a. charley horses) has diminished considerably. (I'm pregnant, so both sleep disturbances and leg cramps are common.) As to the taste, the powder mixed with water is not unpleasant and doesn't have much of a taste. I prefer to mix it with water, lemon juice, and pomegranate juice -- it's delicious!
257957257957B00125ZCWIA30VESJC65X8W3J. Ruckman "Books are the Greatest"9951178668800Peaceful LIfeThis is the absolutely best product. I have spent lots of money trying many different products to relax and calm me. The very first time I used it I could tell a huge difference. It relaxes me during the day so I don't feel stressed out. When I take it at night, I sleep great. When my shoulders and neck are tight and tense I take it and it relaxes them. I think this product is expensive...but it is SO worth it.
257958257958B00125ZCWIA2FU9YFTOUNARLM. Gaut121351309737600Weird and Amazing!I purchased this product because my muscles were very tight. It does a great job relaxing my muscles. The strange thing is, I can't take very much or I have the wildest dreams imaginable. It also makes me tired if I take even so much as a level teaspoon each day.

I started taking much less so that I wouldn't have those hyper-realistic dreams. I take 1/8 teaspoon twice a day. Here's the amazing thing. I get these spells of "skipped" heartbeats -- PVCs and PACs. A mere 1/8 teaspoon of this stuff nips it in the bud in minutes! I quit taking the betablockers I have on standby for this problem because this product is so effective.

This morning, my husband accidentally made me 16 oz. of caffeinated coffee. Since I have significant issues with anxiety, I *never* drink caffeine. I gulped it down and started feeling incredibly jittery and anxious. When I realized what had happened (and that I wasn't merely going crazy), I took 1/8 teaspoon of Natural Calm. While I still felt hyper-alert, the jitteriness went away entirely.

LOVE this stuff, and am so thankful that it is available!
