Troubled with disease or excess weight? Perhaps a mineral deficiency is to blame. Even if you eat the best diet in the world, through no fault of your own you may still be missing out on minerals. This is mostly due to reduced soil health and the advance of chemical agriculture. The good news, is we can fix this.
One mineral in particular, magnesium is vital for over 300 bodily functions. What to do? Consider supplementing. Natural Vitality’s Calm is considered the most absorbable magnesium on the market. Greater absorption means your body gets more mg it can actually use.
Natural Calm is great to drink alone or mix into some fun recipes. The following Love Potion Smoothie recipe is provided by Natural Vitality, find more on their website.

If you’re interested in trying out full spectrum mineral products, I personally recommend Youngevity’s products. Youngevity was founded and created by Dr. Wallach, who through his veterinarian experience helped save animals from nutritional deficiencies. He soon realized people were missing out on essential minerals. Hence his mission became to help all people and animals enjoying thriving health. Learn more and order Youngevity products here. (After trying and loving the products so much myself, I became a distributor for Youngevity also.)
Groundbreaking research on Trace Minerals
In 1977, Dr. Wallach discovered the world’s first known case of non-human cystic fibrosis in a selenium-deficient Rhesus monkey while he was a researcher at the Emory University Yerkes National Primate Center in Atlanta, Georgia. At the time, cystic fibrosis was believed to be the result of a human genetic disorder. Dr. Wallach’s monumental discovery set him on a 20-year path of research surrounding the health benefits of selenium and other trace minerals. As a result of this work, he became known as the “Mineral Doctor” and the “Father of Liquid Mineral Supplementation.” – See more
