Mommy MD Guides-Recommended Product Review: Natural Calm
by Mommy MD Guides cofounder Jennifer Bright Reich
It will not come as a surprise to anyone who knows me that I am an anxious person. If I’m not worried about something, I’m worried about what I’m missing.
A few weeks ago, my anxiety had grown to unprecedented levels. I was talking with a friend, who was experiencing the same thing, and we both agreed if something didn’t settle down soon, we’d consider going to a doctor for medication.
But the real turning point for me was when my son started to express that he was feeling anxious. My anxiety was probably making him anxious too! Ok, now I’d really better do something about this, I thought.
One of our Mommy MD Guides recommended a terrific product called Natural Calm. It’s a magnesium supplement they call the “anti-stress drink.” That sounded perfect to me, so I started taking it once a day.
Natural Calm is a tart-tasting powder that you mix into a beverage. I like it in iced tea, Diet Coke, and best of all mixed into water with a little powdered lemonade mix. The recommended dose is 2 rounded teaspoons, which provides 325 milligrams of magnesium.
Within a few days of taking Natural Calm, I noticed that I felt calmer and less anxious. To my tremendous surprise, I also noticed that I was sleeping better! I started to wake before my alarm, and I didn’t have that “is it possible to die from being this tired” feeling anymore! I was curious if this better sleep was from the supplement, so I skipped taking it a few days, and lo and behold I was back to not sleeping well again.
Why does Natural Calm help? Many people are deficient in magnesium, which in addition to easing stress and helping people to sleep better also reduces muscle tension, constipation, nervousness, irritability, and headaches.
You can buy an eight-ounce container of Natural Calm in raspberry-lemon flavor for $13.77 at VitaCost.com.
