Calm Balance can be taken with or without food. We recommend using Calm Balance in the earlier part of the day, before school or work.

If you use Calm Balance during the day but also need help relaxing and sleeping at night, try taking regular Natural Calm magnesium citrate and/or Calmful Sleep before bed. Simply adjust your dose of each product to suit your total daily magnesium requirements.

Recommended Dose:

  • Adults, up to 2 tsp daily
  • Adolescents 9-18 years, 1 tsp daily
  • Children 4-8 years, 1/2 tsp daily

Each 113 g bottle contains 31 tsps.

Cautions: Anyone with a known medical condition or using prescribed medication should consult a healthcare practitioner before trying a new supplement. If you have a kidney disorder, in particular, consult your doctor before taking oral magnesium. In the healthy population, magnesium of any kind taken in excess can cause a laxative effect. Should this occur, take smaller doses, dividing your daily amount into two or three servings.

CALM BALANCE FAQs

  • CAN I TAKE CALM BALANCE PLUS OTHER NATURAL CALM PRODUCTS?
    Yes, you can combine Calm Balance with any other Natural Calm products throughout the day. If you take Calm Balance at the start of your day to support a more productive, balanced mood, you may wish to add Natural Calm magnesium citrate (our classic product) in the evening or use Calmful Sleep if you need extra sleep support. Decide how much magnesium you need to supplement your diet and determine your total daily intake of Natural Calm products. You'll know you are supplementing magnesium properly when you sleep better, feel more relaxed and calmly energized during the day and have regular bowels.
  • WHEN CAN I TAKE CALM BALANCE?
    Calm Balance can be taken with or without food. We recommend using Calm Balance in the earlier part of the day, before school or work. If you use Calm Balance during the day but also need help relaxing and sleeping at night, try taking regular Natural Calm magnesium citrate and/or Calmful Sleep before bed. Simply adjust your dose of each product to suit your total daily magnesium requirements.
  • WHO CAN TAKE CALM BALANCE?
    Calm Balance is licensed in Canada for adults but formulated and sold in the US for children. We have provided general Calm Balance dosing suggestions, however, parents should consult their healthcare provider if they are unsure whether this supplement is appropriate for their child. If you have a medical condition or are on prescribed medication, please consult your healthcare provider before taking any new supplement.
  • WHAT IS CALM BALANCE USED FOR?
    Calm Balance is formulated to promote a relaxed, calm, focused state. Magnesium relaxes the muscles and regulates the nervous system. Suntheanine, a premium patented form of the amino-acid, l-theanine, is mentally calming. Choline supports brain development. B12 is essential for energy and B6 enhances mood. D3 supports mood, cognition, healthy skin, bones and teeth and vitamin C is a potent antioxidant for cellular defence and repair.

NATURAL CALM USE FAQs

  • WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO SCOOP OUT NATURAL CALM POWDER?
    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.  
  • WHY ARE NATURAL CALM BOTTLES SO TALL AND NARROW?
      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.
  • HOW DO I PREPARE NATURAL CALM AS A DRINK?
    For Natural Calm's magnesium citrate to become ionic and best absorbed, it needs to be fully dissolved. Watch Linda Bolton demonstrate how to make Natural Calm.
  • SHOULD I TAKE NATURAL CALM WITH OR WITHOUT FOOD?

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

  • WHEN SHOULD I TAKE NATURAL CALM?

    Magnesium is excreted approximately every 12 hours, 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.

  • MY NEW BOTTLE OF NATURAL CALM IS ONLY HALF FULL. WHY?

    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. 

  • CAN I PREPARE NATURAL CALM IN ADVANCE AND DRINK IT LATER?
    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.
  • IS IT NECESSARY TO USE HOT WATER, OR CAN I ADD NATURAL CALM TO COLD WATER?

    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 INGREDIENTS FAQs

  • IS THERE SALT IN NATURAL CALM MAGNESIUM?
    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.
  • IS NATURAL CALM ORGANIC?
    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.
  • WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF NATURAL CALM MAGNESIUM AND THE CALCIUM IN NATURAL CALM PLUS CALCIUM?
    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.
  • DOES NATURAL CALM CONTAIN ANY SUGAR, CALORIES OR CARBOHYDRATES?

    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.

  • DOES NATURAL CALM CONTAIN CORN OR ANY OF ITS DERIVATIVES?

    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.)

  • WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF THE CITRIC ACID IN NATURAL CALM?

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

  • WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF NATURAL CALM’S MAGNESIUM AND THE CALCIUM IN NATURAL CALM PLUS CALCIUM?
    Natural Calm’s 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 is derived from Limestone, where it is extracted as calcium carbonate. Then gluconic acid is added to it to convert it into calcium gluconate.
  • WHY DOES IT SAY MAGNESIUM CARBONATE IN THE INGREDIENTS LISTINGS? I THOUGHT NATURAL CALM WAS MAGNESIUM CITRATE?
    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.

NATURAL CALM SIDE EFFECTS FAQs

  • IS NATURAL CALM A LAXATIVE?
    Natural Calm can be used as a gentle, natural laxative. However, the laxative effect is not specific to magnesium citrate and is unrelated to the ionic status of Natural Calm. Dr. Carolyn Dean explains that “...loose stools…(are) a mechanism to release excess magnesium...Even non-laxative picometer magnesium will cause the laxative effect when you reach saturation and take more than you require.” (The Magnesium Miracle, p. 240) Whether you experience a laxative effect from magnesium depends on how much you take in a single dose. Dr. Dean explains, “If you develop loose stools while taking magnesium...it may mean you are taking too much at one time. Never take your daily magnesium all at once; four times a day is best if you’ve been experiencing diarrhea.” (The Magnesium Miracle, p. 247) Some users may welcome the gentle laxative effect. After all, up to 27% of the Canadian population suffer from chronic constipation. This does not include the population with intermittent constipation due to travel, variations in diet, medication, periodic inactivity, etc. Many users find that Natural Calm soothes the gastrointestinal system quickly and effectively. Magnesium works to regulate healthy nerve function, including the nerves of the digestive system. If a recommended dose on the bottle label is causing loose stools or diarrhea, simply cut down the dose or break it up into two or more doses through the day.
  • I EXPERIENCE A LAXATIVE EFFECT WITH NATURAL CALM. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

    Too much magnesium taken orally at one time can cause loose stools. Don't be alarmed! Magnesium is safely excreted by healthy kidneys and loose stools are part of the elimination process.

    If you are uncomfortable, simply decrease the amount of Natural Calm magnesium citrate you take at one time. For example, take smaller amounts throughout the day.

    Healthy, regular bowel movements are one indicator that you are getting the right amount of magnesium.

NATURAL CALM SAFETY FAQs

  • ARE THERE HEAVY METALS OR TOXINS IN NATURAL CALM?
    Natural Calm is subjected to extensive purity and safety testing to pass Health Canada standards for purity. We retain the certificates of analysis proving that Natural Calm is deemed safe and surpasses purity requirements. In the US, the HealthyLiving Foundation independently purchased and tested all Natural Calm ionic magnesium citrate formulas for chemical toxins including inorganic arsenic, cadmium and lead. Natural Calm received the Tested & Approved Seal from Healthy Living Magazine. This seal assures retailers and shoppers that awarded products are free from harmful amounts of chemical toxins including inorganic arsenic, cadmium and lead, meeting the stringent standards of California’s Prop. 65.
  • CAN I TAKE NATURAL CALM AFTER ITS EXPIRATION DATE?
    We do not advise consuming or selling the product beyond its expiration date. Magnesium is a mineral and does not degrade, but the natural fruit flavours in the flavoured versions of Natural Calm have the potential to spoil in the long-term.
  • IS THERE ANYONE WHO SHOULD NOT TAKE MAGNESIUM?

    People who have kidney disease, a low heart rate (i.e. less than 50), Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome, myasthenia gravis or anyone on blood thinners such as Coumadin should consult their doctor before taking Natural Calm.

  • CAN I TAKE NATURAL CALM WITH MEDICATION?

    A medically-trained professional may advise you to avoid magnesium while taking certain prescription medications, including blood thinners. If you are taking any prescription medication, please defer to medical advice.

    Magnesium will interfere with the efficacy of iron supplements and antibiotics. Discontinue magnesium while on a course of antibiotics. If you take both iron and magnesium daily, take these supplements at different times of the day.

  • IS NATURAL CALM SAFE TO TAKE WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING?

    Yes, healthy pregnant and breastfeeding women can safely take Natural Calm magnesium. In fact, magnesium needs will increase during gestation and lactation. Enough magnesium during pregnancy may help with DNA formation and is thought to play a role in preventing complications such as pre-eclampsia. Taking Natural Calm during breastfeeding is beneficial for both mother and baby. 

  • CAN I TAKE TOO MUCH MAGNESIUM?

    If you take too much magnesium, as with vitamin C, the body will use what it needs and eliminate any excess. The excess will go into the colon, causing it to hydrate, where the only effect is stools that are “loose.”  Millions of people around the world use magnesium simply because of the natural, laxative properties.

    This would be the only side effect, and any "overdose" is safely depleted through the kidneys. In fact, magnesium is completely depleted from the body every 12 hours, requiring continual replenishment.

    Take caution if you have kidney problems.  Because excess magnesium is detoxified through your kidneys into your colon, a weak kidney may not work well enough to properly excrete the magnesium.  People on kidney dialysis or who have severe kidney disease should consult their physician before taking any magnesium in supplement form.

    Anyone with IBS or loose stools should divide their Natural Calm magnesium into smaller, more frequent doses throughout the day.

    This helps my autistic son with sleep, anxiety, and digestion. Can’t recommend it enough. Talk to your child’s doctor first, but I think it could be helpful for any child, but especially those with troubles listed above. I also take an adult version myself and it helps with headaches and lots of other things.

    Easy to dose and mix and can mixed with juice or herbal tea, but taste is great on its own. Effective.

    My toddler loves it. Since she drinks only water. A little zap of flavour is like a treat for her. She loves it.
