Natural Calm is a isotonic form of Magnesium that is absorbed into the body at a higher rate than tablets. The body needs a balance between Magnesium and Calcium in order to function properly. Magnesium’s role is to relax muscles, while Calcium’s role is to contract muscles. Due to the foods we eat, the majority of us have more Calcium in our system than we do Magnesium which leads to tightening of muscles.

Magnesium is found in a number of food sources, but many of these foods are not in the typical American diet. To see a list of foods that are high in Magnesium visit this page from the National Institutes of Health.
Magnesium is responsible for muscle relaxation, while calcium is responsible for muscle contraction. If we become out of balance with a ratio of higher calcium to magnesium, our muscles have a hard time relaxing. This is common in our diets because calcium is more common in the American diet, not to mention that a number of people take calcium supplements.
I have been using natural calm in my practice for a number of years and found that it has helped my patients with a variety of different conditions including insomnia, anxiety, constipation, migraines and muscles pains.
