This product was recommended by our physician to combat hypomagnesia in our child. It certainly worked to raise magnesium levels and we had no complaints about the taste. However, it caused major gastrointestinal issues. The culprit? Stevia. This product is loaded with it. If you have an intolerance to artificial sweeteners or Stevia save yourself the trouble and stick with a more natural product.
i use the natural calm magnesium powder in the raspberry lemonade. I love the flavor. its nice and light. I find the natural flavor is supposed to have no taste but it does. its like a salty sour taste. i have been using this product for a few months now. i do find that it helps with keeping calm. its a very nice soothing drink. i would recommend to try. most heath food stores where this product is sold sell trial packs that you can try. awesome.
This magnesium supplement is taken dissolved in hot or cold water. It brings a very nice citrate flavour to the water and is refreshing to take!! Calms the mind :)
Warning: this stuff is powerful. You will need to go to bed after taking it. Which is great for someone like me who has horrible anxiety. Also great if you have issues with constipation (sorry if TMI), but it will make you GO! The only problem I have with this is for me at least, it almost gives me a hangover, in the sense that the effects last well into the next day. So you just feel really wiped. Also, it's not cheap, but it does last quite a long time, as I don't take it every night. I would recommend getting the unflavoured version. I put the powder in 1/4 cup of boiled water and then put cold orange juice and ice in the rest, and drink it quickly. I tried the lemon flavour one and it was overpowering and tasted like Neocitran, which if you like, great, I do not! Overall, if you have anxiety that can get really bad at night, give this a try.
This product did not work for me immediately in terms of its relaxation properties but had an immediate effect on my foot and leg cramps during the night. I have switched to the lemon flavour which I drink in a glass of warm water and it helps me to sleep soundly through the night.
I just began using this product last month, my ND recommended I try it to help ease off headaches related to my cycle. The jury is still out on that as I need about a 3 month trial to see if that is successful. But I am impressed on how effective it is in helping me relax and settle before bed. I was sceptical when I saw the word CALM on the label but it really does live up to that description. I mix it with a little hot water and orange juice and it tastes fine, not a challenge to get down at all. I will continue to use this product as I can already see the health benefits to it. My ND did tell me to only use this product for 2 weeks at a time in order to experience the maximum effectiveness. I think this is a product that I will propose to my friends who are overwhelmed by their busy lifestyle and need help relaxing to prepare for sleep.
This a delicious and convenient prodcut to use.
The body needs magnesium and what a delicious and convnenient way to get this nutrition.
Take it after dinner and before going to bed. The product will also relax your muscles and your mind and assist you in sleeping. Using the product will also keep you "regular" and avoid you getting constipated.
The product is also sold in single serving pouches which is convenient for when you are travelling or staying over at a friends..
in the winter if you have a cold or would like a hot drink it is very soothing and comforting to drink

Amazing for sore muscles, stress, digestive issues... a must! Taste is great, easy to drink( makes me drink more liquids) and its super effective.
I don't know if I've been drinking WAYYYY too many Americanos lately but at any rate, my eye twitches have been off the charts. I was talking to my chiro and she suggested that perhaps I needed more magnesium in my diet (apparently as women, we don't have enough) to help with stress levels, so I set out to find something from the Health Food Store. The tree hugger at the Health Food Store suggested I try this product. Basically tasteless and put it into either water or tea and it dissolves instantly. When I asked what would happen after ingesting this, she suggested that I'd literally feel an instant calm come over me and that muscles would relax if I was tense or feeling stressed. I practically laughed in her face but bought it anyway. I went home that night, contemplated putting in a glass of red wine, and then opted for putting it into a cup of herbal tea. I shit you not, within 5 sips of my tea, I had this instant relaxation response and all of a sudden I felt this calming come over my body. It was kind of freaky actually because I didn't expect such a quick action (or any action at all for that matter). Anyway, this has become one of my nightly routines and it totally helps decompress after a day from hell at work. TOTALLY worth the coin.
