My 10 year old daughter had massive, daily headaches for 1 1/2 years. They were debilitating, leaving us housebound. Nothing helped, not even prescription pain killers. 17 professionals had been consulted (doctors, neurologists, dentists, chiropractors, massage therapists, etc.) Psychology was suggested several times, but we knew this was not the answer. Finally, her body began to be racked with muscle spasms and it was discovered that the headahes were, in fact, muscle spasms. Hair analysis confirmed our suspicions...high on calcium, desperately low on magnesium and other minerals. Natural Calm significantly reduced the headaches within three days to the point where my daughter could, once again, play and do schoolwork. She is currently taking 6 tsp. divided between three times throughout the day (favorite flavor is lemon). After 6 months, we have finally reached the lose stool stage and have begun to back off. Thank you for carrying this wonderful prodct. Praise God for leading us to you.

Natural Calm is an essential in my natural health care cabinet. It not only benefits the health of my bowels, but is also necessary for a peaceful night of rest as it relaxes me and stops the awful leg and toe cramps I have experienced. It is my understanding that magnesium is also beneficial to the heart and proper absorbtion of calcium. I have recommended it to many people and they have all been extremely pleased!

Especially good as a bedtime tea

I usually get the unflavored and it's great but iHerb was out so I tried the Sweet Lemon. If you like very sweet things you will love it. I don't so I gave it to a friend who has kids. The mag really works to calm the muscles and nerves. I drink it before bed so I can fall right to sleep.

I'm not sure that taking the suggested amount doesn't throw off the balance of other minerals (now he has come out with a product that has added calcium). I haven't done enough personal testing, but does seem that my extremities have become sore in joints/ligaments due to ingestion of this product at suggested dose. I would use with care.

Natural Calm really works well, and I sleep so much better when I have a cup in the evening. I like the orange flavor and this flavor the best.

This is the most absorbable and noticeably beneficial magnesium supplement I have used- and there were many! I just can't decide whether I prefer the raspberry lemon, or this one. Both are delicious. P.S. My daughter has been giving her toddler the Children's Natural Calm before bed, and he has been sleeping MUCH better- and all through the night.

I am slowly increasing my dosage and I am finding Natural Calm a great muscle relaxant especially for period pain and PMS.

It does what it is supposed to, and the Sweet Lemon flavour is in my opinion, the best of P. Gillham's variety. Good for stuffy bowels, too.
