Magnesium for Sleep

Sleep is a critical part of self-care as a lifestyle. The CDC states that over one-third of Americans are sleep-deprived. They are calling it a “national epidemic”.

If you have difficulty getting up in the morning, staying alert during the day, or craving an afternoon nap, you may not be getting enough sleep. The daily stressors of life can take a lot out of us, both mentally and physically, so we tend to push our needs to the side until we have more time.

Sleep is often the first crucial daily activity that we forego as we experience the non-stop activity that we call life; be it our jobs, socializing, our family and children. We’re always trying to convince ourselves, “I’ll catch a nap later, or I’ll sleep in tomorrow.” But we all know that doesn’t happen.

We need to remind ourselves that sleep, like breathing, eating and drinking is an integral part of our bodies functioning at their greatest potential. We all know how we feel when depleted from any of those functions, but specifically from the lack of sleep. When we feel such pressure from so many external forces, missing sleep can be a true detriment. It is when we sleep that we allow our bodies to renew, regain, revive, restore, replenish, rejuvenate, reinvigorate & regenerate.

Magnesium is an essential mineral, one of seven essential macro-minerals the human body needs in large quantities.

Circadian Rhythms & Sleep

Magnesium regulates a neurotransmitter called GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid), which controls anxiety, stress and fear… key insomnia triggers. In addition to calming the body and mind, Magnesium is also instrumental in boosting your circadian rhythms. Circadian rhythms act as your internal clock; they send signals to your brain when it’s time to sleep, and when to wake, based on the time of day. Healthy circadian rhythms allow you to sleep deeper and longer.

At Mineral & Co. we want to give you the products you need to sleep better today and into the future. With a daily dose of just one teaspoon applied to the skin 30 minutes before bedtime, Magnesium becomes a balm for sleep.

Our bodies do not produce magnesium. The magnesium your body needs must come from outside sources, and be replenished daily.
