Our children deserve the best. Good nutrition is a cornerstone of good health and vital for proper development. The objective in creating Kids Natural Calm Multi was to combine the beneficial effects of magnesium with a comprehensive premium multi to provide children with key nutrients missing from their diets.
24 Organic Fruits and Veggies
As we know, fruits and vegetables are fundamental nutritional factors in a healthy diet. Kids Natural Calm Multi incorporates superfruits (organic pomegranate, açaí, goji and noni), fruits (apple, banana, blackberry, blueberry, cranberry, mango, orange, pineapple, rasp-berry, strawberry and tart cherry) and vegetables (beets, broccoli, carrot, collard greens, kale, peas, pumpkin, spinach and tomato). We took extra care to use organic produce to ensure no pesticide, herbicide or fungicide residues, chemical fertilizers or genetically modified ingredients were included in our formula.
Omega-3 DHA & EPA
Technically, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are biologically active omega-3 fatty acids. They are basic building blocks in cells and are needed throughout the entire body for good health. As children grow and develop, they require these fatty acids as essential components in their diets. Omega-3 DHA and EPA are an integral part of cell membranes and precursors of several important cellular messengers. DHA has been recognized as necessary for brain, visual and nervous system health and development.
The fish oil used in Kids Natural Calm Multi is sourced from the purest wild sardine and anchovy, fished in cold, pristine waters off South America where there are significantly less environmental impurities. It is the product of a healthy, fully sustainable fishery and is a renewable resource.
Calcium and Magnesium Balance
It’s not just adults who can get anxious because of magnesium-deficient diets. Our children are also susceptible when their favorite foods are magnesium-deficient—hot dogs, pizza, and soda. The stress in their lives—from peer pressure, academic and athletic performance pressures, worries about body image, the changes and hormonal fluctuations of puberty, exposure to negative events and violence through the media—also contributes. Even playing in a band can be a risk factor! Children are underdiagnosed when it comes to magnesium deficiency, but they can have magnesium deficiencies for the same reasons as adults.—Carolyn Dean, MD, ND
Author of the book The Magnesium Miracle
Calcium and magnesium are key nutrients that need to be in balance with each other in order for good health to be fully maintained. Calcium excites nerves, while magnesium calms them down. Calcium makes muscles contract. Magnesium is necessary for muscles to relax. You experience the tensing (calcium) and relaxing (magnesium) interaction of these two elements each time your heart beats, when you feel your pulse, and every time you breathe.
When we are under stress (and don’t think that stress applies only to adults), our cells—which in their resting state contain magnesium—go through a change. Calcium, normally outside the cells, enters the cells and the calcium level becomes high. This is the action state in which a muscle cell, for example, will contract and tense the muscle. The magnesium then pushes the calcium out of the cell and the cell is again in its resting, relaxed state.
Think of it as an on-off switch. The “off” is magnesium and the “on” is calcium.
But what happens to a cell that is not in balance—where the magnesium level in the body is deficient?
In simple terms, the “off” switch doesn’t fully turn off. That means calcium can continually leak into the cells and stimulate cell activity (the “on” switch). The result is stress, which may be accompanied by one or more of the magnesium deficiency symptoms listed in the sidebar of this page.
Magnesium helps your muscles and nerves function properly; it keeps your heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system and also assists in keeping your bones strong. This essential mineral helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure and is required for producing and storing energy. It’s easy to see why many researchers say that no single dietary factor is as critical as magnesium.
Natural Calm is the solution to both restoring a healthy magnesium level and balancing your calcium intake—the result of which is natural stress relief. Natural Calm has been the best-selling magnesium supplement on the market for seven years in a row according to health-food supermarket scanner reports.1
