Our body is equipped with all the tools we need for a good night´s rest. However, more and more people have problems falling (or staying) asleep. Apart from daily routines, cognitive methods and other remedies to promote sleep, there is another healthy way getting more restful sleep - in fact, your body might even be deficient in it already: Magnesium.
Magnesium is a multitasker. As an essential mineral in our bodies, Magnesium plays a role in myriad of health benefits - bone health, metabolism, blood sugar regulation, and nerve and muscle function, among other things. And, no surprise, it plays a crucial role in sleep, too.
When deficient in Magnesium, serotonin levels decrease. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter involved in mood stabilization, meaning deficiencies may lead to fatigue, irritability and lack of concentration.
Because of the scientific evidence of the importance of Magnesium for the human body, the EFSA has approved several Health Claims for Magnesium Salts.
Various studies show that incorporating the recommended dose of Magnesium in our daily diet helps the body to relax and calm the nervous system down. Magnesium improves total sleep time and quality and shortens the time it takes to fall asleep.
To get the best Magnesium in an adequately high dosage we developed two Magnesium blends. By providing optimal combinations of high value organic and inorganic Magnesium Salts they are designed for the use in food supplements, e.g. capsules or in powder form. Due to the varying solubility and pH-value of the different Magnesium compounds, these premixes have a good effectiveness and are well tolerated.
