Natural Vitality Osteo Calm

Natural Vitality Osteo Calm

Dietary Needs:
None

We like this product because it is all about the calcuim/magnesium balance. We hear a lot about calcium, and how important it is to our bones. But what we don’t often hear is that the balance of calcium and magnesium is a critical factor not only to bone health but to our overall health. Magnesium helps the body absorb and transport calcium into the bones as well as makes bones stronger and more flexible. Approximately 50 percent of total body magnesium is found in bone. Osteo Calm is made with calcium gluconate, which has high bioavailability and is significantly superior to many other forms of calcium, such as calcium carbonate. The magnesium is from Natural Calm (see review for Natural Calm.) This is sweetened with agave which isn't our favorite sweetener, but is much better then cane sugar or high fructose corn syrup.

Natural Vitality Life Vitamins

Natural Vitality Life Vitamins

Dietary Needs:
None

Natural Vitality has come up with a smart way to get your daily dose of vitamins in liquid form- and they actually taste pretty good! Liquid supplements are often absorbed better into the small intestine, especially important for those suffering from any kind of intestinal permeability, or leaky gut syndrome. This liquid supplement is loaded with nutrients including organic aloe vera, 24 organic superfruits, veggies and fruits. Organic Life Vitamins provides a range of important vitamins including A, B vitamins, C, D and E. It also includes 800 IU of vitamin D3, 450 mg of trace minerals, a good amount of chromium and selenium. These vitamins are sweetened with agave and stevia. We find them a bit too sweet. One bottle will last you one month.

Natural Vitality CALM

Natural Vitality CALM

Dietary Needs:
None

CALM is a blend of both magnesium and calcium,  both fundamental nutrients that need to be in balance with each other in order for one to fully experience good health. Magnesium participates in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body and nourishes the muscles and nerves while keeping heart rhythm steady. It also supports a healthy immune system, a positive mood, and sound sleep. The active ingredient in Natural Vitality CALM is magnesium citrate, however the two ingredients listed are magnesium carbonate and citric acid. Magnesium citrate is produced when Natural Calm's two ingredients are combined with hot water. The addition of hot water causes the carbonate in the magnesium carbonate to "fizz away" and the magnesium to combine with the citric acid producing magnesium citrate making it highly bioavailbale. While we think it's smart to supplement magnesium when deficient, we typically recommend magnesium glycinate because it is made up of magnesium and glycine, a non-essential amino acid. It is easily absorbed by your body, likely because it gets carried to your cells bound to the amino acid. This form of magnesium is also more desirable because it's less likely to cause a laxative effect. It's important to remember that taking magnesium long-term for its laxative effect is an inappropriate use of magnesium.
