What is Magnesium?
Magnesium is an essential mineral for human health that has multiple wide-ranging effects throughout the body being involved in over 600 cellular reactions. It is essential for organ function, contributes to good bone health, relieves muscle tension and has many relaxing qualities
Why magnesium can help promote a good night’s sleep?
Magnesium works as a sleeping aid by helping both your body and brain to relax. This is essential for falling asleep and achieving a deep and restful night’s sleep. On a chemical level, magnesium activates the parasympathetic nervous system which helps relax the body, calm the brain and quiet a racing mind. Magnesium regulates neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) which can send signals throughout the nervous system and brain, such as gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors. GABA is a neurotransmitter which is often included in sleep drugs that helps to quieten down nerve activity. Magnesium produces similar effects to GABA by binding to the GABA receptors, which in turn quietens down the nervous system and helps to prepare both the body and the mind for sleep. In addition to this, magnesium can help regulate the hormone melatonin which helps regulate sleep-wake cycles.
