Hi all! Hoping you can help me, as I'm a little confused about Natural Calm. I have struggled with constipation issues, for about 20 years. I have been diagnosed with IBS-C, and pelvic floor dysfunction (after 3 kids). I also have some nerve... (more)

I don't have any of the issues you do, but I take Natural Calm. I seem to have difficulty absorbing magnesium, so I started with the full dose of Natural Calm and quickly upped it to double the recommended dose- 2 tsp twice a day. I have noticed... (more)

Has anyone used Natural Calm, the original version without flavoring? If you have, could you please describe your experience with it? Do you have any concerns related to the product? Would you recommend the product to others for use? (more)

I have used it off and on, most when I was VLC and experienced some leg/muscle cramps. It definitely helped relieve the cramps. Have to be careful though as it can give you diarrhea. Although have also used it once or twice to clear up some... (more)

I was browsing some chocolate craving questions and the inevitable "you're low on magnesium!" answers come up. I'm NOT low on Magnesium because I take my tolerance dose each night as NaturalCalm fizz. After dinner but before bed is when I feel... (more)

I love natural calm for when I need help sleeping, but not sure I'd assume that because you're taking it every night, you're not low on magnesium. I would try another form, like unbuffered mag glycinate, for a few weeks and see if that cuts back... (more)

I've been having REALLY bad anxiety lately, and the only way I've solved that the past few days is by eating lots of nuts or nut butters (too much of them might I add...), for instant relief, but I'm trying to lose weight so I knew that I needed... (more)

I suspect your body stores may be depleted, so keep listening to your body! Most folk need 400-600 mg daily to maintain optimum health, but everyone is different.

I'm re-starting Whole30 today, after eating much cleaner than usual the last 2 weeks: I was pretty much in the Robb Wolf protocol without blacking out my windows, but still had hung on to my Bulletproof coffee with butter, some 100% chocolate, and... (more)

I started taking Natural Calm a week ago because I often get leg cramps in the middle of the night and, after researching, I felt like I could have a magnesium deficiency. I started slowly and have now gotten up to 1/2 a teaspoon morning and night... (more)

According to my limited understanding, the body maintains certain ratio between the various electrolytes, so if there is a surplus of one certain mineral, the body will flush it out to maintain balance. My long term strategy is to put enough salt... (more)

Pretty much every night I'll heat up a mug of water, let me Natural Calm (unflavored) do its fizzy thing and then pop a tea bag in the mug, usually chamomile. I'm not very knowledgable on metals yet, could combining the two have any negative effects? (more)

Okay Geoff admittedly I cheated, I just copied my earlier answer from elsewhere in the forum. The pineal gland, located roughly in the center of the head, depends upon magnesium for its own production of melatonin. So a body that is quite... (more)

I was at the Vitamin Shoppe and saw it. It's natural calm plus a calcium supplement. I wonder if it adds any additional benefit?

From my understanding magnesium intake helps support calcium absorbsion so less is needed. If yu are eating plenty of paleo foods and supplementing with magnesium then you shouldn't need to supplement with calcium.

Recently started taking calm at night before bed. Now I wake up and have a vibrating humming sensation all over my body, could this be from the calm?
