Microgenics Ultra Magnesium Sleep Raspberry Flavour 250g Powder

Magnesium can help induce sleep
To achieve a healthy, restful sleep, the body and mind need be able to relax. Magnesium can assist with this by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, the part of the nervous system that makes you feel calm and relaxed.

One of the ways it does this, is by lowering levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Studies show an inverse relationship between cortisol levels in the blood and magnesium: the higher the magnesium, the lower the cortisol1. When you have sufficient magnesium, you are less likely to have high levels of cortisol and therefore less trouble falling asleep or waking up through the night2.

Magnesium is also involved in regulating melatonin, the hormone that plays a role in the natural sleep-wake cycle. The production of melatonin increases when it gets dark and its levels in the blood are highest at night, allowing for a healthy, restful sleep3.

Finally, research shows that magnesium can help induce a good night’s rest due to its ability to increase GABA levels. GABA is a neurotransmitter that decreases feelings of tension, mental rumination (when you can’t switch off your brain and thoughts keep going round in your head) and stress. When GABA levels are low, tension and thoughts that keep going around in your head can stop you from falling asleep. Supplementing with magnesium may help boost GABA levels and relieve nervous tension that stops you from falling asleep4,5.

Several clinical studies have shown that supplementing with magnesium can make it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep and thus help promote a good night’s rest6-9.

Passionflower may help relieve nervous tension
Passionflower has a long traditional use to help promote a restful sleep, and research now shows that it can significantly improve a healthy, restful sleep. Like magnesium, it is believed to act on GABA level to reduce brain activity, promote relaxation and induce sleep10.

It is also believed to improve dopamine and 5-HTP levels to help improve sleep patterns11. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that is associated with wakefulness12.

5-HTP is a building block for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is not only involved in moods but that is also needed for the production of melatonin.
