Natural Vitality CALMTM FAQs
Natural Vitality Calm is the solution to both restoring a healthy magnesium level and balancing your calcium intake
What type of magnesium is used in Natural Vitality Calm?
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.
What does “ionic magnesium citrate” mean?
Ionic means that the molecules have gained or lost an electron and seek to attach to something to balance out the electron count. Our product is ionic – magnesium carbonate binds to citric acid. Research has shown that ionic minerals are more easily absorbed by the body.
The directions say that you can prepare Natural Vitality Calm with 2-3 oz. of hot water or simply add to a glass or bottle of cold water. What is the difference?
The powder form of Natural Vitality CALM is comprised of magnesium carbonate and citric acid. Adding water triggers a chemical reaction, binding the two together to create magnesium citrate. If you add hot water, this reaction will occur immediately and you will know the product is fully converted into magnesium citrate when the fizzing has settled. If you add cold water, the reaction can take up to 15 minutes before it is fully converted. Neither method yields more or less of a benefit; it is mainly a matter of how promptly you’d like to consume Natural Vitality CALM after preparing it.
When should I take Natural Vitality CALM?
Natural Vitality CALM may be taken any time of day. Some prefer taking the product in the morning while others prefer taking it later in the day. Consistent intake of Natural Vitality CALM on a daily or regular basis is the best way to experience the benefits and achieve an optimum magnesium intake.
What does it mean/what should I do if diarrhea occurs?
Magnesium may promote loose stools when taken in amounts at or above 100% of the Daily Value. For those with sensitive digestive systems, or for those who are just starting to use the product, begin with half a teaspoon daily, and increase to recommendations as stated on the product label. Always consult your healthcare professional if you have any health concerns when using this product.
Is Natural Vitality CALM a laxative?

Can I take Natural Vitality CALM after its expiration date?
We do not advise consuming or selling the product beyond its expiration date. While the magnesium is a mineral and does not degrade, there are food-based ingredients in the product (citric acid, and flavoring agents) that have the potential to spoil beyond the expiration date.

Can I put Natural Vitality CALM in something besides water?
Yes. We recommend you first activate the product in 2-3 oz. of hot water. Once the fizzing has stopped and the blend has settled, you can add it to a juice, smoothie, or herbal tea. You can also add to cold water (water bottle or iced drink). In cold drinks Natural Vitality CALM will take longer to dissolve but, once dissolved, it functions the same as in warm or tea beverages.
Are there any contraindications with Natural Vitality CALM and prescription medications?
Please defer to the advice of your physician or pharmacist prior to beginning magnesium supplementation if you are taking any prescription medications.

Every batch of our products are tested by a third party laboratories to ensure levels of metals meet our safety specifications. Nearly every product has trace amounts of heavy metals in it due to the fact of being produced in the organic world. We regularly test our products for heavy metals to ensure that they are in compliance with Federal and State limits.
Should you refrigerate Natural Vitality CALM after opening?
No. We recommend the product be stored in a cool dry place.
Can I prepare Natural Vitality CALM in advance and not drink it until later?
Yes. Many customers do prepare Natural Vitality CALM in advance and drink it throughout the day. If you do not plan to consume it within 48 hours, we recommend refrigerating it (since there are food-based ingredients in the product).
Why isn’t my bottle of Natural Vitality CALM full?
When the powder is bottled, it is extremely fluffy from the mixing that occurs in the production process. Due to this fluffiness, the bottles start out extremely full; so full in fact that a giant auger has to press the product down in order to apply a cap. Over time, the product settles and may appear to be less, although the net weight has not changed.
Do your products come with a safety seal that you have to peel off?
Each bottle of the Natural Calm is sealed with a rip-tab seal on the outside of the lid or a foil seal over the top of it. The rip-tab is designed to not allow the lid to be taken off without having to remove or break it.
