- 2 cups fresh blood orange juice (about 6 medium oranges)
- 1-2 teaspoons Natural Calm Raspberry-Lemon Flavor magnesium supplement
- 16 ounces sparkling water
- Fresh mint for garnish (optional)
- Juice oranges and mix with magnesium powder. Add sparkling water, ice, and garnish with fresh mint (optional). Serve and enjoy!
About a month ago I began including Natural Vitality’s Natural Calm magnesium supplement in my diet and have already noticed a huge difference. I am sleeping better, feeling less stressed overall (even while moving!), and saw a huge decrease in PMS symptoms. This is the only magnesium supplement I have tried, so I can’t personally recommend others, but I love how easy it is to add this powder to water. It’s vegan, gluten-free, and sweetened with organic stevia; so, when mixed with water, it makes a bubbly, sweet drink.
The magnesium powder mixes best with warm or room-temperature liquids, so be sure to mix the juice and powder together before adding any ice.
Disclosure: Natural Vitality provided me with complimentary samples of their products, but I was under no obligation to write a positive review or create a recipe. I was so shocked by my findings on magnesium deficiency and the difference that this supplement made for me that I wanted to share it with you. I would never recommend a product here that I do not personally use and believe in.
