Natural Calm Magnesium

  • Helps with stress
  • Improves sleep
  • Supports concentration
  • Promotes regularity
  • Vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, Non-GMO
  • No preservatives, artificial flavour or colour


The health benefits of magnesium are clinically proven, but most Canadians don't get enough through diet...not the least, kids, who often avoid high-magnesium foods, like leafy greens, legumes, seeds, nuts and whole grains.

Natural Calm is the better-tasting, better-absorbing, best-loved magnesium supplement for kids. The proprietary magnesium citrate formula is fast-acting to relieve stress, improve sleep and more. Parents tell us Natural Calm helps their kids with regularity, concentration, mood and pain from headaches and muscle cramps.

Identical to our best-selling adult formula, Kids’ Calm includes easy-to-follow dosing on the label for kids from 1 - 18.

Kids love the fizzy bubbles and the organic raspberry flavour. Parents love that Natural Calm has no sugar, preservatives, additives or artificial sweeteners.

And it’s great value! Each bottle contains a:

  • 180 day supply for ages 1 to 3
  • 90 day supply for ages 4 to 8
  • 30 day supply for ages 9 to 18

Backed by thousands of five-star reviews and testimonials, Natural Calm has been enjoyed and trusted for 38 years.

Most kids aren't getting enough magnesium through diet.

Directions for Use: Pour about ½ cup of very hot water into a cup or glass.  Add Natural Calm powder, let fizz, stir, and enjoy.

Hot water speeds up the process whereby Natural Calm becomes ionic and highly absorbable.

You can also add Natural Calm to cool or cold water, or even to juice. Simply stir in and wait about 15 minutes, or until the mixture is completely clear – a sign that the magnesium has become ionic.

Ingredients: magnesium carbonate (when dissolved, Natural Calm becomes magnesium citrate)

Non-medicinal ingredients: citric acid, organic natural raspberry and lemon flavours, organic stevia.

Mechanism of Action: The citric acid combines with magnesium carbonate to create magnesium citrate, the most absorbable form of magnesium available.

Nutrient Value, per 1 teaspoon: 205mg of magnesium

Recommended Dose:

Children 1-3 years ¼ tsp daily
Children 4-8 years ½ tsp daily
Adolescents 9-18 years 1 ¼ tsp daily
1 teaspoon (tsp) = 2.5g by weight, 205 mg of magnesium

Known Adverse Reactions: Comfortably loose stools are an indication of the optimal amount. Adjust as required.

    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.

  1. Tracey M.

    “My son and I both suffer from anxiety. His to the point where he’s been diagnosed with inattentive ADD. This product has made an enormous difference in both our lives.”
    Tracy M.

  2. Pamela D.T.

    “We use Natural Calm for our son who has Autism. It’s amazing for our little guy. He is more focused, has fewer tummy issues, fewer behaviors, sleeps better and looks healthier. Thank you!”
    Pamela D.T.

  3. Sherry C.V.

    “Our 4 year-old son has been in and out of hospital for testing for 2+ years now, he has been misdiagnosed a couple of times and tried on different medications that seemed to mask symptoms and make him extremely hyper. He is a high energy child anyhow. We recently received an autism diagnosis for him, and since then we have started him on Natural Calm on a daily basis. We use it once a day, 1 teaspoon in the evening prior to bedtime. It helps keep him settled down so that he has a good night’s rest and he is calm and focused through the following day. Since starting with Natural Calm, he feels better, he is more relaxed and he looks better. We currently use the original flavored powder for him, that way he doesn’t really taste it and fight taking it. We also use the cherry flavored powder in yogurt if he is not wanting to drink the powder. I would highly recommend Natural Calm!!!”
    Sherry C.V.

  4. Lorraine and Kevin C.

    “Thanks for your incredible products! I have been completely convinced with the calm products. The kid calm helps my daughter both with her behavior, sleep better and improves bathroom patterns. My son does not need it daily as he is very regular but on the odd occasion when we gets constipated I offer him a dose and the next day he is back to normal. I too take the calm daily which helps keep my bathroom routine regular.””
    Lorraine and Kevin C

  5. Katherine C. Diamond Bar

    “Natural Calm is the best thing our family had done for peace of mind and sanity at night. We have two young children and it really works well with them. Gives them a good night’s sleep and they just feel better. They like it so much that they ask for it with their vitamins at night. Thank you for showing me this product.”
    Katherine C. Diamond Bar

  6. Miss Mary

    Natural Calm may be the best magnesium product going as I’ve tried a few. During my senior years I am aiming for smooth, gentle sleep with no disruptions so when I take at bedtime enjoy a sound sleep and wake up refreshed and renewed. Thank you for the $3 coupon!

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Thank you so much, Mary! We’re so pleased to hear it. And your testimonial helps others decide whether Natural Calm is right for them – much appreciated!!

  7. Trish

    My son was diagnosed with ADHD and we put him on a stimulant medication under the advice of his pediatrician. After a few months he developed really bad side effects, including tics and stuttering. I immediately took him off. After reading up on natural alternatives to treat his ADHD, I decided to try the CALM magnesium, along with a really good quality omega-3. After a couple months we saw a huge improvement! My son has now been on this combination for almost a year and is completely different child. His teachers send home notes on a frequent basis letting us know how much his behavior has changed and he is now able to get all his work done in class now. Please give this a try before medicating your child. This product has definitely changed his life!

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Hi Trish, thank you so much for sharing your story! We’re thrilled to hear about the results!

  8. Joanna

    Will this be as effective if I add it into homemade gummies?

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Hi Joanna,

      Yes! There are a few recipes for Natural Calm gummies out there on the internet. The key thing is that the Natural Calm should be dissolved in liquid, as I’m sure it will be when you make the gummies.

      Feel free to send pictures and your recipe. Maybe we can share it on the blog…


  9. Sarah

    My daughter doesn’t have bathroom issues – will this affect her in adversely in that area? She just turned 2, is still in diapers and has very sensitive skin so we already have issues with diaper rashes.

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Hi Sarah. Magnesium can be a natural laxative, but it depends on dose. I would give her just 1/4 tsp before bed and see how it goes. You can always add 1/4 tsp in the daytime. I’d also recommend the new MagTherapy Balm. My little kids love it and it delivers magnesium through the skin without irritation.

  10. shantala

    NAtural Calm for Kids says 1 tsp = 2.5 g, so 1/4 tsp = 625 mg which is very high than the daily intake of recommended magnesium (80 mg for 1-3 years old). Are there any side effects by giving such high dosage magnesium? Further it says its ionic, so why give such high dosage?

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Hi Shantala,

      The weight of a teaspoon of Natural Calm is 2.5 grams, but there are about 200mg of magnesium in that teaspoon. 1/4 tsp is about 50mg of magnesium. I’ve updated the product page to make this clearer.

      Thank you!


  11. Shayna

    I can’t find the kids ones here anywhere (Canada?) so I bought the adult one. Where Can I find dosing instructions for kids ?

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Hi Shayna,

      If you look in the information section on this Calm Kids page you will find the dosing information by age!

      Thank you,


  12. Stacy

    This has changed my 7 year old grandsons life. He focuses in school and is doing great. He is way calmer than he was and less aggressive .Ty so much for this amazing product. He was diagnosed with ADHD and natural calm works as good as meds and the best part it’s natural. I would highly recommend it. Give it a try you won’t be sorry.

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Hi Stacy,

      This is such a great testimonial! We especially love to hear success stories about kids. Thank you for sharing!!


  13. Ayesha

    My daughter likes to add a little bit sugar with this otherwise it’s a fight to give her the drink… is this ok if I add a little amount of sugar?

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Hi Ayesha,

      Kids do tend to like it sweeter. For my children, I add honey instead of refined sugar. You could try that. Also, I add just a tiny bit of hot water because I give it to them before bed. Mixed with honey it’s a lovely, sweet little shot of magnesium.

      I hope this helps! Please note we have magnesium gummies coming in the spring/summer and they are perfect for kids!


  14. Amber Fox

    If I have the regular Calm, can I give that to my 5 year old children? I am still confused as to how much I should give them?

    • Anna O’Byrne

      Hi Amber,

      The regular Natural Calm is the very same product as Kids Calm, but the kid’s bottle has dosing by age and only comes in Raspberry Lemon. Here is the dosing by age:

      Recommended Dose:

      Children 1-3 years ¼ tsp daily
      Children 4-8 years ½ tsp daily
      Adolescents 9-18 years 1 ¼ tsp daily
      1 teaspoon (tsp) = 2.5g by weight, 205 mg of magnesium

      Please feel free to use these guidelines when preparing the regular Natural Calm for your children.

      Thank you,


  15. Tam

    When is the best time to give naturally calm? For an anxious, constipated child? For an ADHD child? Do you give the dose once a day or twice? How long until you see or experience noticeable benefits.

    • Anna Bolton O’Byrne

      Hi Tam.

      Every child is different. It depends on their age, diet, condition and how they metabolize magnesium. Please see the dosing guidelines on the Natural Calm Kids product page.

      If you can, split the daily dose into two or three smaller doses – this helps with magnesium absorption. You can add the complete dose to a bottle of water and have the child sip periodically throughout the day if that’s easier.

      Results really vary from individual to individual! Thank you for your interest and all the best with the child.


  16. Laura

    My 16 month old son has just started taking this but doesn’t like the flavour. Is there a natural, unflavoured option?

    • Anna Bolton O’Byrne

      Hi Laura,

      The kids’ formula is the same as the adult formula – regular Natural Calm magnesium citrate. The only difference is that the kids’ bottle includes dosing by age. I would suggest ordering samples from our store so you can try the other flavours or the unflavoured version.

      There are several ways to help small kids take Natural Calm. We sometimes add honey or a splash of juice if they need more sweetness.

      I hope this helps!


  17. Sandra Baiao

    Does Natural Calm Kids come in original flavor? My son would not like raspberry lemon. Can it be added to juice or pop?

    • Anna Bolton O’Byrne

      Hi Sandra,

      Sorry for the delay. Natural Calm Kids is the same as Natural Calm magnesium – the adult version. It has the same potency. The difference is that the Kids bottle has dosing by age. So, you can order any flavour of the regular Natural Calm for your son and follow age-appropriate dosing.

      You can add Natural Calm to almost any liquid, but dissolve it in hot water first. Avoid mixing with milk, caffeinated products (obviously for older kids and adults) and taking it with sugary drinks somewhat undermines the health-benefits of taking magnesium because sugar depletes magnesium.

      Thank you,


  18. Natasha Lesar

    My 13 yr old deals with anxiety. I just started giving to her at bedtime. Its only the 2nd night ..when will we see improvements with her sleep and anxiety..

    • Anna Bolton O’Byrne

      Hi Natasha,

      Many customers say they can feel the difference within 15 to 30 minutes of using Natural Calm. How are things going with her sleep and anxiety since you began using Natural Calm?



  19. Heather

    My five year old has been suffering with growing pains for well over a year now. A friend suggested trying calm and gave me some samples. It’s made an enormous difference!!! She now sleeps through the night without waking up from the leg pains. I ordered a big bottle of the cherry flavoured one, she loves it. Thank you so much. This product has made a huge difference in our family.

    • Anna Bolton O’Byrne

      Hi Heather! This is great news about your daughter! Thank you for sharing and all the best:)

  20. Heather

    My son won’t take this in drink form. So I mixed it in yogurt and I noticed a difference in bedtime, but I want to make sure that it’s safe to mix with yogurt before I keep doing it in yogurt. Thanks!!

    • Anna Bolton O’Byrne

      It is definitely safe to use with yogurt! The magnesium becomes ionic (and better absorbed) when fully dissolved. In cold liquids (or semi-liquids) this takes a bit longer than in hot liquids. I would mix it a bit in advance to be sure it’s fully dissolved.

  21. Heather

    See great results as it takes the ‘edge’ off my 5yo. However it’s a huge fight to get it down. Would LOVE a gummy option!

    • Chad Shears

      The Gummies are here!

  22. Hilda

    My 4 years old refuse to drink it Can I add half teaspoon in his cereal? Is it ok to mix it with milk?

    • Chad Shears

      it is fine to mix with milk after you prepare it with hot water as directed on the label

  23. Maryann

    Would you know if this would help kids with tics??1 my 6 year old has started twitching and it’s freaking me out. Wounded if this would help??
    Ps can’t rate until my child has tried the magnesium

    • Chad Shears

      Hi, Magnesium is great for tics and twitches, I find the trandermal options work right away and are really good for tics and spasms and growing pains as well

  24. Maryann

    What do you mean the trandermal options?? Also can I give it like a shot. Easier for my child to swallow at once ??? Or do I need slot of water

  25. Maryann

    Please respond. What do you mean transdermal options ???

    • Chad Shears

      Sorry Maryann, our transdermal options are our Balm, oil, gel and spray magnesium chloride products

  26. Angel

    i bought this product for my 2 1/2 year old son but i got the gummies, it says 4 and up but is it okay to still give it a try?

    • Chad Shears

      Yes absolutely, but only give 1 a day

  27. Lindsay Johnson

    Just a question

    My child will not drink anything hot?? How can this work then?

    • Chad Shears

      HI Lindsay, once you disolve the Calm in hot water you can cool it down with cold water or add it to juice or anything else. Hope that helps!

    • Chad Shears

      HI Lindsay, once you dissolve the Calm in hot water you can cool it down with cold water or add it to juice or anything else. Hope that helps!

  28. Shahina Hussain

    I have a boy age 8 with autism he is eating all non food items like tissues, papers, wood etc etc now days my question is does he need magnesium ? And he is very hyper too

    • Chad Shears

      Hi Shahina, while we can’t prescribe anything for certain behavior, or claim that our products will cure any issues, we can say that magnesium has been shown to calm nerves and been helpful in autism cases. We hope this helps and that this finds you well
