by Dr. Carlo Carandang, MD
What Is KalmPro?
Kalmpro is a natural supplement for anxiety. It was formulated by a psychiatrist, a medical doctor, an MD, who has clinical, research, and teaching experience in anxiety and depression. The biggest problem with prescription medications for anxiety is that they have multiple side effects which are often intolerable. Even though the prescription medications, especially SSRIs and SNRIs, are effective for anxiety, their side effects can be overwhelming to the point where you can’t continue with it anymore.
So the quest was on to find a natural treatment for anxiety that did not have the side effects of prescription medications. Dr. Carlo Carandang, MD, spent much time doing research into herbal and dietary supplements. With this research, he formulated his own natural supplement for anxiety, KalmPro.
KalmPro includes two dietary supplements, one of which is a carbohydrate, inositol, and the other an amino acid, theanine. It also contains 3 herbal supplements: passionflower, lavender, and lemon balm.

Rest assured, with Dr. Carlo Carandang’s clinical and academic experience, he has formulated a safe and effective natural supplement for anxiety.
Another important difference is that KalmPro is part of a larger, affiliated self-help program for anxiety, which includes AnxietyBoss.com, and AnxietyProtocol.com, both under the medical direction of founder Dr. Carlo Carandang, MD. Finally, Dr. Carandang is so confident that his product will work for your anxiety that he has a 100% satisfaction guarantee, or your money back- no other natural supplement for anxiety can give you such a guarantee.
