Natural Calm Magnesium Powder, 8 oz
Magnesium influences many bodily processes, including digestion, energy production, muscle function, bone formation, creation of new cells, activation of B vitamins and relaxation of muscles, as well as assisting in the functions of the heart, kidneys, adrenals, brain and nervous system. The fact is that lack of sufficient available magnesium in the body can interfere with any or all of these processes. The National Institutes of Health, Office of Dietary Supplements, reports that there is an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Magnesium is an essential mineral. This means that the body doesn't manufacture it and it must be obtained through diet. Most people don't get enough magnesium. "If you wanted to take the most important, the number one, mineral in the human body that is sorely neglected," says noted author Sherry Rogers, MD, "it's magnesium. The average American diet, government studies show us, provides only 40%-less than half the magnesium that we all need in a day. So almost everybody is low!" A significant percentage of the population have below healthy magnesium levels, including many who already use magnesium. Why? First, the amount of magnesium required by the body is greater than people think. Second, most magnesium capsules and tablets are not completely absorbed by the body.
According to Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, and author of The Magnesium Miracle, "The powdered form [of magnesium] is the best because you start absorbing it straight away, even in the mouth. So, powdered first, and then capsules, and then tablets. The tablets usually have a lot of binders and fillers and are harder to dissolve than capsules."
Individual needs may vary. Start with 1½ teaspoon (1 gram) daily and gradually increase to 2 slightly rounded teaspoons (4.5 g) per day as needed. Some people may need to start with a half teaspoon only and gradually work up to higher amounts. For best results, divide your daily amount of Natural Calm into two or three servings. Natural Calm can be taken with or without food. During times of stress or heavy physical activity your body may need more Natural Calme.
