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 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'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)

Ive tried Natural Calm and it gave me vivid dreams and made me really lethargic the next day. Upon suggestion from Paleohacks I bought some Magnesium glycinate which doesnt give me the dreams but I still feel like I was hit with a tranquilizer... (more)

Magnesium is a muscle relaxant. Calcium is it's opposite and triggers contraction. Either lower the dose of mag or try adding calcium.

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)

Magnesium glycinate is generally well-tolerated and I at least haven't experienced any vivid dreams, out-of-body experiences, Casper attacks etc. One thing about magnesium that I don't understand is why it's taken at night like a pharmacological... (more)

I trust Robb Wolf's advice usually, but Natural Calm is where I draw the line. This stuff has been giving me near death experiences. This morning, I had leaky stool, bloody nose, clogged sinuses, muscle sorness, tiredness. On top of that walking... (more)

Natural Calm contains "MSG" or "free glutamic acid"(excitotoxins) in significant amounts because it contains factory created "citrate"(from citric acid that is made from corn, usually GMO) that is bound to the magnesium. The symptoms of... (more)

I currently take 2 teaspoons of Natural Calm before bed. I have no issues at all with it, except for one thing. Because I take it right before bed, I wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and then have a hard time going back... (more)

I truly love my magnesium citrate goodness before bed, deep sleep, and the impeccable timing of my morning trips to the "think tank", BUT Has anyone stopped taking Natural Calm after a long period of using it? Did you have a hard time sleeping?... (more)

I went on a work trip for a week and forgot it. My first thought was panic because I thought I would be constipated the next day, however, I wasnt. My movement was as smooth but I got the job done. I didn't notice a huge change in my sleep either. (more)

I bought some Natural Calm magnesium citrate supplement about four or five days ago. I bought it because Robb Wolf recommended it, and I occasionally have trouble getting to sleep, but so far it seems to be more of a detriment than an aid. The... (more)

With Natural Calm, ignore the label. I usually suggest people start with a quarter teaspoon a day for a week, then increase by a quarter each week until you're up to two teaspoons a day. Otherwise, bowel tolerance is normally an issue. If you... (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)

Magnesium binds to GABA sites(a brain neurotransmitter) and helps you retain the GABA in your brain. GABA is a calming neurotransmitter. That is most likely what is happening. Re: your night cramps - my dh takes magnesium for heart issues and he... (more)

A magnesium insufficiency is a lot less paleo than taking natural calm. Yes I do think it will help things, generally magnesium works to relax the nerves and inhibit various neurotransmissions that can lead to cravings. Calcium is always needed,... (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.
