Natural Calm is a highly absorbable magnesium supplement. Magnesium is an important nutrient that is used by muscles, organs (including the heart and kidney), contributes to the makeup of teeth and bones, activates enzymes, and is part of energy production. Even though you can get magnesium from many foods including whole grains, nuts, and green vegetables, many people are deficient in magnesium and positively benefit from the right kind of supplementation. Natural Calm is a very popular magnesium supplement because it restores healthy magnesium levels and balances calcium intake, which ultimately results in natural stress relief. Who doesn’t want that?
Here’s a quick flashback to biology class: magnesium and calcium are fundamental nutrients that need to be in balance with each other and are important at a cellular level. Calcium and magnesium basically have opposite functions in the body. Calcium excites nerves, contracts muscles, and helps clot blood. On the other hand, magnesium calms nerves, relaxes muscles, and keeps blood flowing freely. You experience the tensing (calcium) and relaxing (magnesium) interaction of these two nutrients every time your heart beats and you take a breath!
Since this relationship between calcium and magnesium is so vital for our body, having the proper balance is critical. If magnesium is deficient it causes stress on the body that can present as symptoms such as muscle tension, headache, leg cramps, irritability, insomnia and fatigue. Magnesium deficiency can be caused by many factors including inadequate dietary magnesium, emotional stress, some medications, heavy exercise, too much calcium in the diet, and some illnesses. Natural Calm is an easily absorbed and effective form of magnesium and quickly goes to work to restore balance in the body to provide natural stress and symptom relief.
