Magnesium is a mineral involved in over 300 different biochemical pathways in the body, and that includes ones that promote relaxation. “When we’re stressed, we use up our body’s store of magnesium. This is one reason why I’ve been experimenting with taking magnesium for better, more restful sleep for years,”* Moday writes in her review of mbg’s sleep support+ supplement.
The integrative medicine specialist explains that magnesium supports muscle relaxation and eases the release of stress hormones like adrenaline, helping to maintain a healthy cortisol response. “It’s also crucial in maintaining healthy serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain, which are both needed for mood and a clear mind during the day,” she adds.
And in her quest to find the best magnesium supplement available, Moday discovered mbg’s pioneering sleep support+ formula. After taking it for a few months, her deep sleep increased in duration, she fell asleep faster, and she woke up feeling more refreshed, Moday writes in her review.*
