Standing in a natural foods store, I came across a product called Natural Vitality's Natural Calm. I for one love any product that helps to reduce stress and help us keep a sane mind. I picked up the product and read the label and looked to be a simple magnesium powdered supplement. So why would this work more effectively than a tablet or capsule version? The only way to find out is to buy it, so I did! And I picked the Raspberry Lemon flavor (sweetened with Stevia).
I took my new found purchase home to check it out and use it to see what all the hoopla is about. First thing, the magnesium is a blend of citric acid and magnesium carbonate, so it'll have that fizzy effect when you add it to water. Kind of like Alka-Seltzer, but healthier. I took the 2 teaspoon dose and added it to water and watched it fizz and when it calmed down (no pun intended) and drank with a 'wow' look on my face. This stuff taste great!!
Let's get to the health benefits of magnesium and why a product like this will benefit you.
Magnesium is known to reduce muscle tension, lessen pain associated with migraine headaches, improve sleep, and address neurological disorders such as anxiety and depression.
Conditions linked to magnesium levels include:
Back to Natural Vitality's Natural Calm. I find the best time for me to take it is at bedtime, but it can be used anytime and should be taken daily. Today's society is extremely deficient in magnesium which explains why this nation is one big ball of tension. Magnesium won't cure all your economic problems, but it'll greatly benefit your over all health. And don't just take from me, Natural Vitality's Natural Calm has won many awards and continues to be a best seller!
So if you are feeling stressed, muscles cramping (PMS too) or anything listed above, do yourself a favor and give it shot. Your body will benefit daily by improving your magnesium intake. Calcium gets all the glory, but magnesium is far more important than calcium will ever hope to be so go get it. And take it from this doctor, your health will improve when you start giving it the life-giving nutrients it needs every day.
