We make it no mystery how worry and stress can get in the way of our happiness and productivity. About a year ago we went on a holistic search for natural products that help calm our nerves and give us a sense of well being. One of our favorites yet is Magnesium. When Utzy Naturals reached out to us and offered to send us some products in exchange for a review we were more than pleased to give their Magnesium powder a try! What’s best is that all their products are backed by a 30 day, money back guarantee… so if something doesn’t work for you, you aren’t obligated to that purchase.

Okay so tell us more?!
The U-Mag from Utzy Naturals is a part of their Foundations line which works to enhance baseline nutrition. Because Magnesium is a naturally occurring mineral in the body this is 100% safe and natural. Each 30 serving jar is $19.95. The jars are really nice, and they’re dark colored so your product will keep well. Each serving contains your daily allowance of Magnesium as well – and considering that 50% of Americans are Magnesium deficient it seems like a great opportunity to make sure you’re covered. Why? Because Magnesium helps to relax heart, muscle and nerve cells. Without it you’re more prone to headaches, cramping, anxiety and sleep problems. If you are an athlete this is a great post workout / performance supplement.
Organic Lemon Flavor
Stevia Leaf Extract
(we swear you won’t taste it, we couldn’t)
The instructions for use are simple – add a scoop of this powder to a glass of water… it fizzes so you’ll want to sandwich the powder by adding a few ounces of water, the powder and then a few more ounces of water.
This comes with it’s own scoop to make measuring it out really simple! As soon as you open the jar you can smell the inviting lemon flavor!
So, our thoughts? We’ve taken Magnesium before so we know what to expect.. but in case you haven’t this is a really fizzy drink and the flavor of lemon in this one is really refreshing. Most people would do best to take this before bed (although we prefer to take it in the morning with our greens). We love that the supply is for 30 days as well!
In addition to the U-Mag Utzy also sent us some of their Utzzzz’s Stay Asleep Natural Sleep Aid.
Each bottle contains 60 capsules and costs $32. It’s important to note that this isn’t to be used regularly but more as an occasional sleep aid on nights when you experience wakefulness. This is part of Utzy’s Targeted Nutrition Line, and is aimed at helping you to maintain deep sleep throughout the night. So, in essence it’s perfect for people who suffer from sleeplessness throughout the night.
Each capsule contains a targeted blend of Calcium, Magnesium, 5-HTP (Hydroxytryptophan ((like in turkey)), Gamma Aminobutyric Acid, L-Theanine, Sour Cherry Powder, Ashwagahnda Root Extract and German Chamomile.
Our experience with this product was interesting. This is intended for people that are light sleepers or who may be in a place where they’ll sleep restlessly (this isn’t our problem as much as getting to sleep). We did notice when we took this we had NO DREAMS and did not wake up AT ALL! So that was unusual because our experience with products like Melatonin gave us really vivid dreams. Definitely good for light sleepers… ahem Mr. I’m Not a Tree
In addition to all these products Utzy also offers Immune Support Supplements (so perfect for this time of year), Multi-Vitamins, Fiber Supplements, Vitamin D3, Fish Oil, a Valerian Root Supplement (which if you aren’t familiar with Valerian Root… great way to fall asleep occasionally), Cholesterol Support, Allergy Support and a Melatonin supplement. So there’s tons to choose from and everything is natural!
