Kalm-Assure is a product advertised to combat stress, provide anxiety relief and even alleviate symptoms of depression. It is produced by Nature’s Plus, a well-reputed manufacturer of energy supplements that claims to focus on high quality rather than pricing.
Nature Plus, a company that has over 35 years’ experience, has made a purpose out of supplying its customers with high-quality and effective supplements to help them perform better in their daily activities, as well as to provide relief from chronic conditions. Most of their products are focused around increasing energy levels, although they have supplements targeted at the better functioning of specific body parts or organs.
Kalm-Assure is made from combination of activated nutrients and herbal extracts, meant to increase the effectiveness that these substances would have on their own. The suggested use for this product is stress relief, reducing anxiety and helping fight depression, and is recommended as a more natural alternative to prescription pills.
Kalm-Assure contains: Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, Passionflower, Eleuthero, GABA, Chamomile, Hops, and Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate, microcrystalline cellulose, di-calcium phosphate, stearic acid, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, magnesium stearate, silica, pharmaceutical glaze.
One of the main ingredients in Kalm-Assure is Pantothenic Acid, a substance also known as vitamin B5. Known usage of this substance includes improving hair quality, fighting obesity and acne, alleviating testicular torsion and providing relief for diabetes patients. It also has a major effect in the synthesis of coenzyme A which, in turn, is essential for the biosynthesis of compounds such as fatty acids and cholesterol, and it facilitates energy metabolism.
Magnesium is another highly relevant ingredient in this supplement, as it is commonly used for treatment-resistant depression. It also has been use for the treatment of migraines, and the prevention and treatment of kidney stones.
Passionflower, chamomile and hops have commonly been used as anxiolitycs and as treatment for insomnia, stress, fatigue and depression.
Eleuthero has not been extensively researched in the US, but so far it is reported to have effects against fatigue, in increasing memory capabilities and supporting the immune system.
GABA’s effects as a supplement aren’t proven, but it is rumored to provide a calming effect.
The effects of the products as a whole have yet to be proved; Nature’s Plus does not provide information on testing and, while the individual ingredients seem to perform to have the advertised effects, there is little proof that the compound as a whole works in the advertised way.
The recommended dose for this product is one capsule per day, and there are no known counter-indications for it. It is advised that pregnant or nursing women and people taking prescription medicine consult their physician before consumption of this product.

It is advised to do some research or consult a physician before consumption of this supplement, in order to ensure that the product suits your individual needs. It is also recommended to keep in mind that if you’re experiencing depression, seeking professional help is preferred to self-medication.
