Calcium + Magnesium + Vitamin C
Looking for natural remedies for anxiety and stress can cause more stress — there are so many choices. Understanding what makes your body relax can remove a lot of that stress and narrow your search. Find the right product, and you’ve found the right remedy for you.
Leonardo da Vinci, famous for his painting of Mona Lisa but also a renowned anatomist, wrote,”Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” more than 500 years ago. Perhaps he was looking for something simple to soothe his own anxiety and stress.
Natural remedies for anxiety and stress make products with fewer ingredients — ones that are easy to pronounce and understand — possibly your best answer for relief. One in particular, Instant CalMag-C, appears to measure up to the problem and provide a simple remedy.
The name Instant CalMag-C reveals what’s in the container: Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin C. No fillers, no flavors, no sweeteners or other ingredients added. Simple. Sophisticated. Relief.
The Right Kind of Calcium
Calcium is not easily absorbed or utilized, yet it is so vital to your diet and to many internal body functions that choosing the right kind of calcium is an important decision.
Calcium carbonate is a white, insoluble solid not easily dissolved in water. Commonly found as chalk, limestone, marble, and calcite, and mollusk shells and undersea corals, this is basically rock.
All waters in contact with the atmosphere absorb extra carbon dioxide, making bicarbonates.
Calcium bicarbonate, while it helps to build bone internally, cannot be purchased outright. It requires an aqueous (water-based) solution and is unstable in the external environment. Further, when coming into contact with mineral rocks and sediments, most commonly calcium and magnesium, this contact dilutes and upsets the bicarbonate balance by losing carbon dioxide units and reducing back to a carbonate. For these reasons, we cannot use calcium bicarbonate to enter the body.
Calcium Gluconate and Lactate
According to world-famous Dr. Royal Lee, founder of the wholefood supplements produced at Standard Process in Wisconsin, there are two types of calcium that can be properly used by the human body: Calcium Gluconate and Calcium Lactate.
Calcium gluconate is used in Instant CalMag-C. Calcium gluconate is neither calcium carbonate, nor calcium bicarbonate; yet, once inside a body where it can do some good, the gluconate regains a bicarbonate status and assists cells across a wide array of healthy functions.
Within the body, this new calcium bicarbonate assimilates well, builds bones by combining with organic phosphorus (a mineral found in grains) and lecithin (found in natural fats), and helps prevent polio, colds, and other childhood diseases that produce fever. In fact, a calcium bicarbonate deficiency alone can cause a child to have a recurrent fever, and such illness disappears at once upon introduction of calcium lactate or calcium gluconate into the bloodstream.
Calcium gluconate is a mineral supplement manufactured by bringing to a more neutral pH, gluconic acid, an edible that occurs naturally in honey, fruit and wine.
Calcium’s “Cousin” Mineral
Magnesium is basic to life’s nucleic acid (DNA) and to all known living-organism cells. A vital element of a healthy human diet, magnesium plays a role in preventing stroke and heart attack, and the absorption of calcium. Magnesium helps calcium survive stomach acids to arrive at the gastrointestinal area where absorption can take place. Magnesium energizes absorption of calcium by human cells.
The case made in recent years for the importance of magnesium over calcium, is significant, since little calcium gets used by the body without the presence of magnesium, leading to a host of other health problems.
The Importance of Vitamin C
Besides the fact that ascorbic neutralizes chlorine and chloramines, it is vital for many body functions too.
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, “Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning that your body doesn’t store it… you need vitamin C for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth.”**

One of the natural remedies for anxiety and stress
The combination of calcium gluconate, magnesium carbonate and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) provides a convenient, pleasant supplement capable of answering the call for natural remedies for anxiety and stress at a higher efficiency rate than using the ingredients separately. Mixed with boiling water, Instant CalMag-C powder transforms to a soothing glass of mineralized water that many people find is a natural remedy for not only anxiety and stress, but also muscle and menstrual cramps… even hangovers!
