WHAT IS MAGNESIUM CARBONATE?
Also known as dolomite or magnesite, magnesium carbonate is a mineral salt.
Natural Vitality CALM Magnesium Carbonate Powder combines magnesium carbonate with citric acid. When mixed with water, that combination creates a solution of magnesium citrate, which is more easily absorbed than magnesium carbonate alone. In other words, it’s easy for your digestive system to absorb.
WHAT IS CALM MAGNESIUM POWDER USED FOR?
It’s dissolved in water or other beverages to take as a supplement to support healthy magnesium levels. Magnesium is a critically important mineral for hundreds of processes throughout the body. A few examples include:
- Helps maintain healthy functioning of the brain and nervous system*
- Supports protein synthesis*
- Supports healthy bones and muscles*
- Promotes overall cardiovascular health*
See above for more information about the benefits of magnesium.
DOES MAGNESIUM POWDER EXPIRE?
While magnesium is a mineral and does not degrade, there are ingredients in Natural Vitality CALM Magnesium Carbonate Powder (citric acid and flavoring agents) that have the potential to spoil beyond the expiration date. We recommend consuming the product prior to the expiration date on the package.
HOW DO I TAKE CALM MAGNESIUM POWDER?
Take daily. Anytime you’re ready to relax, mix up a cup of CALM and enjoy with or without food.
Step 1: Start with half a teaspoon (1g) daily and gradually increase to two leveled teaspoons (4g) per day as needed. Place powder in a glass or mug, add 2-3 oz. of hot or cold water.
Step 2: Let it fizz, then stir until dissolved and clear.
Step 3: Fill the rest of the cup with warm or cold water, and sip!
