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.
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.
