Frequently Asked Questions
1. What does Natural Calm do?
Magnesium is a mineral that relaxes nerves and muscles. Natural Calm is the only formula that absorbs instantly and is properly pH balanced so it doesn't cause your body to be overly acidic. Millions suffer daily from symptoms that can be remedied or significantly improved by restoring sufficient amounts of magnesium.

- Body tension
- Bowel imbalances
- Calcification of organs
- Tightening of the muscles
- Heart-related problems

2. How does it work?
Water reacts with Natural Calm and causes it to go into a solution. The water then acts as a carrier for the magnesium so it can reach all parts of the body. Natural Calm is the most bio-available(1) form of magnesium.
The Natural Calm formula is very specific and goes through rigorous testing to ensure that it is not too acidic-just enough to help the magnesium go into solution. This is an important point. Without the proper amount of acidity, magnesium will not dissolve properly and will not be available for use by the body. Too much acidity will cause other body problems. This is why Natural Calm is carefully pH balanced and gets better results.
3. How much Natural Calm should I take?
Individual needs may vary. Start with 1 teaspoon (or less) daily and gradually increase to 3 teaspoons (or more, as needed). When bowels are comfortably loose, this is the optimal amount. Some people may need to start with a half-teaspoon only and gradually work up to higher amounts.
4. Are there any side effects?
Natural Calm can be taken safely without side effects. As with vitamin C, the body will use what it needs and eliminate any excess. The only temporary discomfort that may result is, if you take too much at one time and your body is not accustomed to magnesium, you may get diarrhea. (See suggested use directions on the bottle.)
5. Why can't I just take magnesium pills or capsules?
According to doctors, patients, natural products retailers and thousands of customers, magnesium compressed into pills and capsules does not absorb as well as when it is dissolved in water. Natural Calm is the most bio-available form of magnesium. Peter Gillham developed Natural Calm twenty years ago for this reason alone. The results reported from using Natural Calm are significantly better than from taking any pill or capsule.
Here is what one natural products retailer says:
"We've been very pleased with the increasing sales of Natural Calm in our store. Because I like it so much myself, I've been promoting it in our newspaper and radio advertising campaigns. Many people have said they love Natural Calm because it helps them to feel less anxious, have fewer aches and pains, and most of all-it helps them to sleep better, which, in turn, helps them feel better in general. I also recommend it to moms for their hyperactive children, who normally aren't eating properly or sleeping enough.
"With so many people deficient in magnesium, it's no wonder so many benefits are felt. Natural Calm is easy to use, has a pleasant taste and it only takes a small amount to be effective, so a container lasts a long time. Thanks again for making such a great product!"

6. What is the difference between Natural Calm and other magnesium powders?
The difference is in the acid-to-mineral ratio. Natural Calm goes through rigorous testing to ensure that it is proportioned correctly with the proper pH balance. Products that use too much acid in order to get the mineral to dissolve are potentially harming the body. Those with not enough acidic content fail the bio-availability test.
7. How does Natural Calm relate to calcium?
Calcium needs magnesium in order to assimilate into the body. Calcium should never be taken on its own because it will pull magnesium out of body parts in order to assimilate. Not only will you not get the calcium your body requires, but you will deplete your body's supply of the essential mineral magnesium.
Taking more calcium will rarely remedy a calcium deficiency. It is magnesium that will handle the calcium deficiency as well as the lack of adequate magnesium (it will dissolve any excess calcium from the body, while helping any needed calcium to assimilate).
The solution to restoring a healthy magnesium level and assimilating the calcium you need is Natural Calm .
8. Can I give it to my child?
Yes, and you should. Try Kid's Formula Calm for children four years old and up. Children respond very well to Natural Calm. It has an orange flavor that tastes like a juicy orange, contains no sugar or artificial sweeteners and zero carbs. This formula will relax the nerves and help a child to grow, concentrate and stay healthy.
Scientific studies suggest that some children with ADHD have lowered levels of magnesium. In a preliminary controlled trial, children with ADHD and low magnesium status were given 200 mg of magnesium per day for six months.Compared with 25 other ADHD children with depleted magnesium levels, those given magnesium supplementation had a significant decrease in hyperactive behavior.(2)
9. What is the source of the Natural Calm?
Our magnesium comes from sea water.
10. Does it have salt in it?
11. What are the ingredients in Natural Calm?
Balanced magnesium citrate powder blend.
Supplement Facts Serving Size: 3 teaspoons
Amount per 3 teaspoons % Daily Value

12. Can I mix warm water with Natural Calm or does it have to be boiling?
Natural Calm is best prepared with boiling water. Natural Calm will even dissolve in warm or cold water; however, it absorbs faster and more completely the higher the temperature. For best results, we suggest preparing and drinking Natural Calm like a hot tea.
13. Is it better to take Natural Calm at night or in the morning?
Whenever your body needs it most. This varies from person to person.
14. Can too much magnesium intake over a period of time develop a magnesium toxicity in the body?
Magnesium is not stored like other minerals such as calcium. As with vitamin C, your body will use it and eliminate what it doesn't need.
15. What is in Natural Calm that makes it fizz?
The proprietarily blended magnesium citrate.
16. What are "flavored Calms"?
Natural Calm products in natural raspberry-lemon, orange and sweet lemon flavors are the same classic Natural Calm formula but with delicious natural flavors and stevia.

"The added ingredients (natural flavoring and stevia) increase the chemical reaction, which is necessary to get all ingredients into our superior bio-available solution.
