These past couple of weeks I was given the opportunity to review an awesome anti-stress supplement drink. Natural Vitality is a company that was founded in 1982 by Peter Gillham in an effort to provide and combat nutritional deficiencies America. It was founded on the fact that American nutrition has declined over the past 6o years and he wants to do something about it. So by creating nutrient rich, easy to use sustainable supplementation he is definitely on the right road.
Natural Vitality products are high quality and even are award winning dietary supplements. All of the products are Non – GMO and all the ingredients are organically grown. They are best known for Natural Calm, their magnesium supplement drink which helps to balance out the muscles and nerves in the body. Which keeps the heart steady and supports a healthy immune system.
This is not my first time using Natural Vitality, I have used their products over the past year, mainly their children supplementation for my kids. The main way that I have used them in the past was with by mixing them in the kids smoothies so that children would drink them with out even knowing I had them in there. Since for some reason if I tell my kids their taking liquid vitamins they just automatically want to say no.
But when taking cod liver oil they seem to have no problem…….
Anyhow, lets stay on track here.
Natural Vitality sent me their Natural Calm Anti-Stress raspberry lemon flavor packets to review. The purpose of the packets is supposed to balance your calcium intake and restore healthy magnesium levels in the body. Having healthy levels of both calcium and magnesium is very crucial , both of these play a major role in proper formation of bones and teeth, regular bowel function, regulation of the heart, relaxation of blood vessels and even help with giving you a boost of energy. More than 80% of Americans are deficient in healthy magnesium levels.
Now that's way to many people if you ask me!
Some symptoms that can you help you figure out if you might be lacking in these is two are:
- Numbness and tingling
- Muscle contractions and cramps
- loss of weight
- Fatigue and Weakenss
- Menstrual Cramps
I know from my own journey of having an issue with painful menstrual cramps that I had to do something about it. I decided to up my mineral game and include more calcium and magnesium along with other things. I hardly get nauseous anymore and I barley have cramps if any.
However, I have had great experiences so far with many of their products. The Natural Vitality calm packets taste quite good. You know how some powdered drinks can have a powdery taste to them, well these do not. The raspberry lemon flavor dissolved quite well and quickly enough so that I could enjoy it. Soon after I finished half the bottle I started to feel really calm, and very relaxed. It was a little more of relaxed feeling than what I'm used to since it made me want to go to sleep. However that was only the first time that I used it. Every other time it was not to that extent, where I needed to take a nap.
The Anti-Stress Drink is Gmo-Free, and it gets my vote for sure!
I also had the chance to try out their Natural Vitality Kids Natural Calm Multivitamin. This one in particular is one that I have used in the past and has a taste similar to that of a V8 if you ever had it. Not a big fan of V8 or the taste. That is why with this multivitamin supplement I tend to mix it in the kids smoothies when I to get the chance. It contains over 24 organic fruits and veggies, omega-3 DHA & EPA and Vitamins and Mineral along with amino acids. The kid natural calm is even gluten and GMO free! The only thing I don't like is that it contains agave nectar which I am not a fan of.
But hey you win some you lose some.
Even though, I don't like the taste it goes away when mixed in homemade Popsicles or smoothies!
Natural Vitality even has their own line of Vitamin C supplements, I already take some supplements in pill form. Although not many, because I have a hard time taking any pills that are not in gel cap form.
Don't ask me why, it stems from a horrible experience I had as child taking medicine.
So, I was totally relieved to see that their vitamin c was in a gel cap form, Lately I have been using a powdered form, but its great to have options. They are really quite small and easy to swallow making it snap to take the required amount for each day. The only thing I noticed is that I have not seen the product back on the site, so I don't know if they stopped selling it or if they are just plain out of stock .
Anyhow, I love the natural vitality products and will continue to purchase more in the future.
