Below we take an in-depth look into PureCalm, a product that is said to induce a feeling of calm and relaxation, to see whether it delivers on this interesting promise.
PureCalm is a nootropic supplement that works by making customers feel calmer and more relaxed. The product is administered via a liquid dropper, where it can be put directly into the mouth or mixed with juice or water. PureCalm is described by the manufacturer as a long-term treatment which may take a few days or more to take full effect.
This interesting product is manufactured by Native Remedies, a company that currently offers, ‘more than 250 herbal remedies and homoeopathic remedies especially formulated for complete holistic health and wellness’. The website has a very high rating on shopping.com and is based in Florida, USA.
Potential side effects from using PureCalm include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, dizziness, wheezing, constipation, increased appetites, headaches, confusion, involuntary muscle action, altered consciousness, rapid/abnormal heartbeat and inflamed blood vessels. Allergic reactions to passionflower can be particularly unpleasant, although rare – some reactions have only been reported by a single person.
The price of a single 59 ml bottle is roughly the same from most American online stores (such as the official Native Remedies store or Amazon), costing $38.95 plus shipping. In the UK, the website for Troo Health Care sells PureCalm for £27.97 and South African customers can buy it for 96.60 Rand from Feel Good Health’s website.
PureCalm is a pretty good product in several ways. Its formula and ingredients list are backed by a reasonable amount of scientific evidence, so customers can be assured that the product works roughly as advertised in most cases. Depending on frequency of use, the bottle is also very reasonably priced; for just under $40, customers receive a supply that can last from 40-80 days.
Native Remedies also appears to be a good company to buy from. The company enjoys a good reputation for customer service, and offers an outstanding one-year money back guarantee for dissatisfied customers. This makes purchasing from Native Remedies much less risky than from other companies – customers can try out PureCalm safe in the knowledge that the product is easily refundable if it doesn’t work.
After looking at customer reviews, it’s clear that PureCalm won’t work for everybody. Although there are a lot of interesting success stories to leaf through, some customers claim that the product had no discernible effect on them whatsoever. Although we didn’t see any customer reviews that mentioned side effects, readers should still remember that each ingredient has the potential to cause issues on occasion, some of which are quite serious. It is also somewhat worrying that some customers appear use PureCalm to tackle serious anxiety disorders, ADHD problems in children, and other conditions.
PureCalm can be used as a helpful supplement, but we still recommend that customers avoid using it as a medical treatment. Readers should remember that this company still does not print individual ingredient quantity information and should not be considered a drug. We can’t recommend it as a treatment, although it might be a nice pick-me-up for some.
We do not recommend PureCalm to our readers.

PureCalm is a nootropic supplement that claims to induce calm and relaxing moods. It is intended to be a general means of relieving stress, helping customers to sleep more easily, relieve anxiety and ease the symptoms of physical or mental tension.
PureCalm is manufactured by Native Remedies, a BBB-accredited supplement retailer from Florida. Native Remedies has attracted good ratings on most independent watchdogs, and has been praised for its customer service and on-time deliveries. The website also has a very high rating on shopping.com, and has a contact us page, complete with fax, address, contact phone numbers and a contact box through which customer services can be emailed.
Dilute drops in a small amount of water or juice, or drop directly into the mouth.
Adults & Children 15+: Take 0.50 ml 3 times daily.
Children 10-14: Take 0.25 ml 3 times daily.
Children 6-9: Take 1 drop per year of age.
PureCalm is intended to induce feelings of calm and relaxation, and is designed to be taken in times of stress or when going through periods of anxiety. Customers are encouraged to take the product regularly, as the positive results reportedly take a few days (or even weeks) to materialise. Native Remedies also specifically recommend a number of stress-relieving activities on their website (such as healthy diet, exercise or good time management) that customers can use alongside PureCalm to speed up the process of feeling calmer and more relaxed in general.
The ingredients contained within PureCalm are all proven quantities. Lemon balm has repeatedly been proven to make subjects feel calmer and more relaxed during stress tests, and lavender has been shown to reduce anxiety and improve sleep problems over a 2-3 month period. Passionflower has actually been found to be as good at reducing the symptoms of anxiety as some prescription medications. Based on the scientific evidence, we would estimate that this product should work as advertised.
That being said, the evidence shown by customer reviews suggests that the product does not work for everyone and is not a ‘magic pill’ that cures all individual circumstances and life situations. Interested readers would be advised to try combining the product with other stress-relieving activities, such as health diet, exercise and meditation.
The ingredients contained within PureCalm are listed below. Readers should note that the individual ingredient quantities are not listed, which can sometimes make it difficult for us to estimate how effective the product is.
Proprietary Formula 0.50 ml
All of PureCalm’s ingredients have the potential to cause side effects. In the past, lemon balm has sometimes caused nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, dizziness and wheezing. When taken orally, lavender can cause constipation, increased appetite and headaches.
The side effects associated with passionflower can be slightly more extreme, causing dizziness, confusion, irregular muscle action/coordination, altered consciousness and inflamed blood vessels. On one occasion, a person experiencing an adverse reaction to passionflower reported vomiting, drowsiness, a rapid heart rate and abnormal heart rhythms.
If pregnant or breastfeeding, ask a health professional before use. If symptoms persist or worsen, consult a health care professional. Keep this and all medicines from the reach of children.
PureCalm has so far received quite strong reviews on Amazon, as many report interesting success stories of it changing their (or their children’s) overall mood and well-being. Praise is not universal, however, and a significant number of former customers simply claim that the product did nothing for them.
This stuff has worked SO well for my 8-year-old daughter, in terms of helping quell her anxiety issues. Within a few minutes of taking this she is significantly calmer and can focus on things easier. We will definitely be reordering.
We bought this product three months ago when our 7-year-old daughter was on the verge of being sent to a hospital for children with severe behavioural problems… She would kick and scream, bite and slap people just for not getting her way or for not understanding. It was like she wasn’t in control of herself or her emotions …. The behavioural specialist had been coming for months and we saw little improvement. With the pure calm, she seemed to be able to tolerate other people more and be calm enough to absorb all the things she was learning at school and at home. This product literally changed, not only the quality of life of my little girl, but also the entire household of her family, whose lives were just a couple of months ago, almost unbearable. I love this product because it is all natural and has no side effects. We put it her juice and she can’t taste it when she is takes it.
I get really anxious when my daughter rides horses because I have anxiety and panic attacks. I take this before I watch her lessons and it really helps me relax.
It did not work for my son. Maybe because he is severe ADHD, it made him more hyper. It may work differently for somebody, but it didn’t work for him, but everybody is different and if one thing doesn’t suit somebody, something else will.
This product did seem to reduce nervous sweats and anxiety but unfortunately taken at the recommended dose of 5 drops there times a day it made me very tired and sleepy.
Native Remedies offer a very strong one year unconditional money back guarantee on all products. The company requires that customers try the product for 30 days, and if dissatisfied, they may contact customer service to organise a full refund (minus shipping). This offer extends to any order totalling $200 or less.
PureCalm is available to buy from a number of online stores, including the official Native Remedies store, Amazon, Troo Health Care, Feel Good Health (SA), As We Change and more. The general price for a 59 ml bottle is $38.95 from most American outlets. British customers can pick up the same bottle for £27.97 (from Troo Health Care) and South African customers can pay R 96.60 (from Feel Good Health).
