LAS VEGAS, NEV. — On Friday, Jan. 17, 2020, my office filed a products liability lawsuit against the makers and sellers of the popular magnesium supplement Natural Vitality Calm. The lawsuit claims the product is defective because it contains “suspicious-looking, tiny red particles of unknown origin.”

“The magnesium powder contains microscopic particles that—upon contact with water—swell in size, turn the color red, become buoyant, and enmesh together inside a sticky film.”
Plaintiff argues that the Natural Vitality Calm is defectively labeled, for failure to mention, on the ingredient panel, that the product contains suspicious-looking, tiny red particles of unknown origin. What are these tiny red particles?
The Legal Claims
The lawsuit states five claims against the makers and sellers of Natural Vitality Calm: (1) engaging in deceptive trade practices; (2) selling defective products; (3) breaching the implied warranty of fitness; (4) causing battery (unconsented touching); and (5) inflicting emotional distress.
The Factual Allegations
The lawsuit alleges that: (a) Defendants fail to disclose “all” ingredients in the Natural Vitality Calm; (b) Defendants fail to disclose the presence of tiny red particles in the Natural Vitality Calm; (c) Defendants fail to disclose the ingredients in the tiny red particles; (d) Defendants fail to disclose the product manufacturer’s identity; and, (e) Defendants fail to disclose the red particle manufacturer’s identity.
The Outcome Sought
The lawsuit seeks a court order requiring Defendants to identify all ingredients in the Natural Vitality Calm, as well as a court order requiring Defendants to identify the product manufacturer. In terms of compensation, the lawsuit seeks general, special, and punitive damages in dollar amounts to be determined at trial.
What is Natural Vitality Calm?
Natural Vitality Calm is a magnesium supplement. Magnesium is essential for proper muscle function; magnesium promotes a healthy heart. Due to pesticide overuse, most Americans today are magnesium deficient.
Benefits of Magnesium
Magnesium tends to relax the body, which helps folks fall asleep naturally — without resort to sleeping pills. Magnesium also tends to create a laxative effect, which may help with constipation.
When mixed with water, the Natural Vitality Calm powder creates a chemical reaction. The white magnesium powder fizzes-up with carbon-dioxide bubbles. After the bubbles fizz away, the magnesium binds to the citric acid to form magnesium citrate, which folks ingest.
What’s Really Going On
Once upon a time, Garden of Life was a respected brand name, but then they were bought-out by a large, impersonal, multinational corporation — i.e., Nestle, which promptly bastardized product integrity — just to save a few bucks. So too, Natural Vitality was once a respected brand name, but then they were bought-out by a large, impersonal, multinational corporation — i.e., Clorox. (Get it?)
‘War on Health Foods’
The scenario is all too common — devoted mom ‘n pop supplement makers who strive for excellence — passionate about product integrity — who work for years to promote their brand names and earn customer loyalty. But then along comes the mega-corporations — which are unable to offer competitive, quality products — so instead, they just purchase the mom ‘n pop company — raise the prices, dilute the quality, then let it crash into the ground! Works every time!
What’s in the Natural Calm?
What are the tiny red particles? Are they legitimate food additives? Stabilizers? Preservatives? How did the tiny red particles get into the Natural Vitality Calm? Who knows! But one thing’s for sure—no red particles should be in the magnesium powder in the first place!
Below are photographs of the tiny red particles floating in a glass of water containing Natural Vitality Calm.
Looking down on the glass of water can be seen the tiny red particles as well as a peculiar gelatinous substance that seemingly binds the particles together.
The contaminants consist of approximately one dozen specks of red material, each speck smaller than a bread-crumb.
The tiny red dots become buoyant—and rise from the bottom of the glass—then float higher-up near the water line.
Suspicious-looking, tiny red particles of unknown origin.
