Introducing BodyHealth's Perfect CALM

Stress is an unavoidable aspect of life. Looming deadlines at work, busy family schedules and the responsibilities of trying to balance a healthy lifestyle and exercise on top of everything else. So it’s no wonder we get stressed out sometimes. The question is always: What can we do about it and how can we help our body cope with the effects of stress itself?

There are actually natural ways to lower our stress levels and to improve the way our daily stressors affect us.

Did you know that stress levels in a human body are linked to magnesium deficiency? Yep. Magnesium actually prevents stress hormones from entering the brain, inhibiting its ability to cope with it. Did you know that roughly 80% of Americans experience magnesium deficiency? Yes again. Magnesium is usually removed from our drinking water, and growing soils are now often depleted of magnesium and other vital nutrients. The Recommended Daily Value (RDV) for adults is between 320 and 420 mg, but the average person in the U.S. consumes just 250 mg daily.

Fortunately, one serving of BodyHealth’s Perfect CALM™ provides almost 90% of a full Recommend Daily Value of magnesium. This new, natural supplement has been formulated to promote relaxation, making it easier to slow things down, take a calm moment for ourselves and successfully navigate through the busy schedules and inevitable stressors in our lives.*

Perfect CALM is a natural formula that helps restore healthy magnesium levels in the body and provide improved calcium-magnesium balance, which helps support the body’s natural responses to stress. The natural blend uses the power of magnesium carbonate and citric acid, which when combined with water create magnesium citrate, one of the most powerful relaxation formulas available.

The Health Benefits of Magnesium: BodyHealth’s Perfect CALM

Available in 8oz. and 16oz. sizes in two effervescent flavors, Tangerine and Berry Lemon.

Magnesium deficiency can cause a variety of health issues, including negatively affecting cardiovascular health, digestive health, and bone health. Studies have even found that low levels of magnesium can negatively impact cognitive function in women and affect the ability to effectively cope with stress.

Magnesium allows the body to make more insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), a major factor in the growth and strength of muscles. On top of this, adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a cellular energy storehouse that’s created with a big assist from, you guessed it: magnesium.

Magnesium also helps untighten muscles. Without magnesium, muscles can’t relax and cramps happen. Magnesium is vital, too, for flexibility since low magnesium levels result in too much lactic acid, which causes pain and tightness. Magnesium is then ideal for post-workout muscle recovery!

While many people take dietary supplements containing calcium, many of these products do not include the all-important magnesium. Magnesium, calcium, vitamin K2 and vitamin D function at their best when working with each other, making each of these components necessary for the proper functioning of the others.

Perfect CALM harnesses the calming power of magnesium in a convenient powdered form that easily dissolves in water. In addition to supporting the body’s healthy response to stress, magnesium supplementation also offers benefits for cardiovascular health, healthy digestion, as well as bone health, when combined with the power of calcium, vitamin K2, and vitamin D.

The Link Between Depression, Antibiotics, and the Life Saving Benefits of Good Gut Flora
The Link Between Depression, Antibiotics, and the Life Saving Benefits of Good Gut Flora

Physicians over thousands of years have observed a link between a patient’s mental state and how swiftly they recover. It is a long-standing axiom that people who are determined to get better and maintain a healthy frame of mind recover more quickly, with better results.

But what if we told you that it’s a two-way street? That specific health conditions can cause conditions like depression and anxiety?

In 1931, decades before the first antidepressant and antianxiety medications had been developed, a physician named Yaskin discovered that clinical depression is the earliest manifestation of pancreatic cancer. Further research demonstrated that patients who suffered from gastrointestinal malignancies carried the greatest risk of suicide – which was one of the first science-based flags indicating that the digestive system can have an impact on mental health.

The simplest way to reduce toxins in your body is to avoid them. Despite today’s crazy world that has toxins everywhere, there are steps you can take that will reduce your toxin intake. This gives your body a chance to get rid of the “backlog” and catch up.

  1. Eat ORGANIC. One of the most important ways to reduce toxicity is to eat foods that are certified organic. Not only do these foods contain higher nutrient densities to supply your body with what it needs, but they are free from the pesticides and chemicals present in most food.
  2. Avoid exercising and training in a densely populated city (when possible). As an athlete, your respiratory system is much more active – and training in a city with high levels of pollution means you are inhaling toxins just by breathing.
  3. Avoid any household products that have artificial fragrances. Artificial fragrances are toxic and should be avoided.
  4. Stay away from pesticides.
  5. Avoid highly-processed foods, as these are generally chock full of toxic chemicals.
  6. Stay away from products that contain BPA, which means avoiding plastic bottles, cardboard, and cans as much as possible.
  7. Avoid the use of non-stick cookware, as the coating contains harmful chemical compounds that can enter your food and be consumed.

Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has been used for centuries as a natural herbal remedy for those who fall ill.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest,” and it has been noted as early as the 5th century BC as a medicinal tonic – forever cementing it as a staple in human nutrition.

But, it wasn’t until recently that we understood WHY it is so helpful to the body. And with this understanding came advanced methods of harnessing the incredible power of this medicinal plant.
