Natural Calm Questions
Hi all! Hoping you can help me, as I'm a little confused about Natural Calm. I have struggled with constipation issues, for about 20 years. I have been diagnosed with IBS-C, and pelvic floor dysfunction (after 3 kids). I also have some nerve... (more)
Has anyone used Natural Calm, the original version without flavoring? If you have, could you please describe your experience with it? Do you have any concerns related to the product? Would you recommend the product to others for use? (more)
I was browsing some chocolate craving questions and the inevitable "you're low on magnesium!" answers come up. I'm NOT low on Magnesium because I take my tolerance dose each night as NaturalCalm fizz. After dinner but before bed is when I feel... (more)
Ive tried Natural Calm and it gave me vivid dreams and made me really lethargic the next day. Upon suggestion from Paleohacks I bought some Magnesium glycinate which doesnt give me the dreams but I still feel like I was hit with a tranquilizer... (more)
Pretty much every night I'll heat up a mug of water, let me Natural Calm (unflavored) do its fizzy thing and then pop a tea bag in the mug, usually chamomile. I'm not very knowledgable on metals yet, could combining the two have any negative effects? (more)
Natural Calm causes me very vivid dreams and whenever this occurs (80% of the time) I dont feel well rested the next day. Im only taking 1/4 teaspoon. Does anyone have a recommendations for alternative sources? Ive taken some other versions of... (more)
Magnesium glycinate is generally well-tolerated and I at least haven't experienced any vivid dreams, out-of-body experiences, Casper attacks etc. One thing about magnesium that I don't understand is why it's taken at night like a pharmacological... (more)
I have been hearing good things about the magnesium supplement Natural Calm, should I try it? It seems un-paleo, if you will, kind of like Emergen-C, sort of unnatural?? I have fierce chocolate cravings and have read that it may be due to... (more)
I trust Robb Wolf's advice usually, but Natural Calm is where I draw the line. This stuff has been giving me near death experiences. This morning, I had leaky stool, bloody nose, clogged sinuses, muscle sorness, tiredness. On top of that walking... (more)
I currently take 2 teaspoons of Natural Calm before bed. I have no issues at all with it, except for one thing. Because I take it right before bed, I wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and then have a hard time going back... (more)
I truly love my magnesium citrate goodness before bed, deep sleep, and the impeccable timing of my morning trips to the "think tank", BUT Has anyone stopped taking Natural Calm after a long period of using it? Did you have a hard time sleeping?... (more)
I bought some Natural Calm magnesium citrate supplement about four or five days ago. I bought it because Robb Wolf recommended it, and I occasionally have trouble getting to sleep, but so far it seems to be more of a detriment than an aid. The... (more)
I've been having REALLY bad anxiety lately, and the only way I've solved that the past few days is by eating lots of nuts or nut butters (too much of them might I add...), for instant relief, but I'm trying to lose weight so I knew that I needed... (more)
I suspect your body stores may be depleted, so keep listening to your body! Most folk need 400-600 mg daily to maintain optimum health, but everyone is different.
I started taking Natural Calm a week ago because I often get leg cramps in the middle of the night and, after researching, I felt like I could have a magnesium deficiency. I started slowly and have now gotten up to 1/2 a teaspoon morning and night... (more)

I'm re-starting Whole30 today, after eating much cleaner than usual the last 2 weeks: I was pretty much in the Robb Wolf protocol without blacking out my windows, but still had hung on to my Bulletproof coffee with butter, some 100% chocolate, and... (more)
