Kids Magnesium FAQs

Magnesium is important for children and adults alike, however, children naturally need a far lower amount of magnesium supplementation compared to adults. An appropriate dosage of magnesium for kids falls around 65mg of magnesium in total for young children, up to 110mg per day for children between 4 and 8 years and up to 350mg of magnesium for children aged 9 years and up.

Too little magnesium in the diet can lead to your kids getting magnesium deficiency – however, magnesium supplements for children may be toxic in too high quantities. A child should usually have around 65mg of magnesium daily; this can be provided by the diet, but any magnesium deficiencies not met in the diet can be corrected with magnesium oil and supplements for kids.

Magnesium supplements for kids are valuable sources of magnesium if your child’s diet isn’t meeting their magnesium needs. Magnesium is important for children as it helps ensure a good sleep pattern, healthy bones, good blood pressure and glucose levels, and the like. A well-planned diet that includes high-magnesium fruits, fish, seeds, whole grains, and the like may be enough to meet your child’s magnesium needs, but most Canadian diets will not meet the required 350mg for over 9-year-olds; in this case, magnesium supplements for children can help prevent deficiencies.

Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQ

We have a selection of samples available for a low cost in our shop.  

Magnesium supplements in liquid form are the best absorbed. Tablets, while convenient, are widely-known to be less effectively absorbed. Your body only uses a fraction of the magnesium in a tablet.

It is  difficult to get the magnesium we need from food alone. Health Canada confirms that most Canadians aren’t getting enough magnesium from diet. This is no surprise given that magnesium is only found in significant quantities in seeds, nuts, legumes and leafy greens. Most North Americans don’t eat enough of these foods to meet their requirements. For a listing of magnesium in foods see

Ionic means that the molecules have gained or lost an electron and seek to attach to something to balance out the electron count. Research has shown that ionic minerals are more easily absorbed by the body. That’s because “the amount of magnesium your tissues can use is based on how soluble the magnesium product is and the amount of elemental or ionic magnesium that is released” (Dr. Carolyn Dean, The Magnesium Miracle, p. 243) Natural Calm magnesium citrate powder becomes ionic when prepared as directed, for fast, effective absorption at the cellular level.


There is no sodium in Natural Calm. Magnesium citrate is called an organic “magnesium salt” in chemistry terms, like sodium chloride (table salt), but the two are very different. “In chemistry, a salt is an ionic compound that can be formed by the neutralization reaction of an acid and a base. Salts are composed of related numbers of cations (positively charged ions) and anions (negative ions) so that the product is electrically neutral (without a net charge).” (Wikipedia)  These component ions can be inorganic, such as chloride, or organic, such as citrate.


Natural Calm magnesium is sourced from deep in the ocean. It is a naturally-derived product, but because it is harvested, not produced, it is never certified organic. The fruit flavours used are 100% organic.

Natural Calm magnesium is extracted from ocean water. The citric acid in both the Natural Calm Magnesium Citrate Powder and the Calm Plus Calcium is sourced from sugar beets. The calcium in Natural Calm Plus Calcium is derived from Limestone, where it is extracted as calcium carbonate. Then gluconic acid is added to it to convert it into calcium gluconate.

There is 0.015 g of stevia per teaspoon of flavoured Natural Calm (no sugar); there are no sweeteners or flavours added to the unflavored version.

Flavoured Natural Calm contains 0.7 calories per teaspoon, and 0.3 grams of carbohydrates. Unflavoured Natural Calm contains zero calories and zero carbs.

The unflavoured version of our Natural Calm does not contain any corn or derivatives of corn. The flavouring used in the other varieties (Raspberry Lemon, Sweet Lemon, Orange, and Cherry) does have a sub-ingredient that is derived from corn (organic maltodextrin); however, there are no corn proteins in the product and all flavours of Natural Calm have been verified as non-GMO by the Non-GMO Project. (Calmful Sleep is also Non-GMO, but certification status is pending for Calmful Sleep in 2017; the process takes time.)

The citric acid is derived from verified non-GMO sugar beets sourced from Belgium.

The final product when consumed is magnesium citrate. It is created with a proprietary blend of magnesium carbonate and citric acid. Once added to water, a chemical reaction binds the two together and creates ionic magnesium citrate. As per Health Canada regulation we must list the ingredients in their elemental state.


Some customers have asked us how to best scoop the powder out of the container. We find that the best method is to tip the container slightly and use a teaspoon. 

The reason a long, narrow container is used (instead of a wide, flat container) is that retailers require bottles that are tall, rather than wide, to make better use of shelf space.

For Natural Calm’s magnesium citrate to become ionic and best absorbed, it needs to be fully dissolved in hot, preferably boiled, water. ( It can then be added to cold water or any other beverage if preferred. )

You may take Natural Calm’s magnesium with or without food depending on your stomach. It is well absorbed with food. Most people like to take Natural Calm on an empty stomach, and the vast majority of consumers prefer to take Natural Calm in the evening, about 30 minutes before bedtime. 

Magnesium is excreted daily, so ideally you should take Natural Calm morning and night. The very best method is to add Natural Calm to a large water bottle and sip slowly from morning until night. During the day, magnesium can help you to feel a steady, calm energy to meet the challenges of work and play. In the evening, magnesium helps activate melatonin, so you can get a deep and restful sleep when you need it.

Natural Calm is sold by weight (grams or ounces), not volume. When the container is initially filled, the powder has a higher volume because of the distribution of air. Natural settling occurs, during which the air rises to the top and the powder becomes denser. 

Yes. Many customers do prepare Natural Calm in advance, add it to a large bottle or jug of water, and drink it throughout the day. We recommend that you refrigerate any prepared Natural Calm that is unused after one day.

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.


Natural Calm Kids is the same award-winning formula as our Natural Calm formulated for adults. The ingredients and concentration of magnesium are the same, however, the Natural Calm Kids bottle includes a chart for dosage by age, on the label. This dosage table makes Natural Calm Kids more convenient for families with children.

  • Caution should be taken when considering any supplement for infants or children with a medical condition. Always consult your health care practitioner. From toddlerhood to teenage years, kids can benefit significantly from Natural Calm. Often their diets are low in magnesium, and even children experience symptoms of magnesium deficiency, including constipation, poor sleep, mood disturbances, fatigue, anxiety, and more. Natural Calm Kids Calm is identical to our adult formula but provides dosing for ages 1 – 18 on the label. Kids will love the natural Raspberry-Lemon flavour, parents will love that it contains no sugar, artificial sweeteners, fake flavours or dyes.
