There are two equally effective ways of preparing Natural Calm: hot or cold. Using hot water is the faster method.
The Hot Water Method: When you prepare Natural Calm with hot water, the magnesium powder quickly converts to ‘ionic’ magnesium citrate. This is one of the most absorbable forms of magnesium. Many customers add cold water or juice after the fizzing has settled and the hot solution is clear. When the mixture is flat and clear, it is ready to consume.
The Cold Method: When you prepare Natural Calm with cold or tepid liquid (water or juice), it takes longer to convert into ‘ionic’ magnesium citrate. We recommend that you wait approximately 15 minutes before consuming cold-prepared Natural Calm. After the elapsed time, it will be just as effective as if you had used hot water.
