Magnesium is an element found in nature, and plays a vital role in diverse biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation.
Magnesium has the ability to decrease anxiety and act as a mental relaxant, hence its efficacy as a natural aid for insomnia. Magnesium can also relax the body by loosening muscles, adding to its therapeutic effects for insomnia.
There are multiple forms of Magnesium- Magnesium Oxide, Magnesium Citrate, Magnesium Glycinate, and Magnesium Threonate. We use Magnesium Glycinate, the best type for sleep and the one with minimal if any GI symptoms (too much of the wrong type of Magnesium can cause diarrhea).
