Magnesium for Restful Sleep
At Long Natural Health, we are sympathetic towards the variety of issues people have with getting adequate sleep. While how well you sleep is dependent upon many factors, one easy step anyone can take toward getting better sleep is to start supplementing with magnesium.
Several studies have indicated that magnesium provides the body with neuro-protective actions, without which, sleep stages lose their harmonic order. This erratic and unpredictable pattern leads to less restful, restorative sleep, which is very detrimental to overall health.
“When you’re deprived of sleep, your brain can’t function properly, affecting your cognitive abilities and emotional state. If it continues long enough, it can lower your body’s defenses, putting you at risk of developing chronic illness. The more obvious signs of sleep deprivation are excessive sleepiness, yawning, and irritability. Chronic sleep deprivation can interfere with balance, coordination, and decision-making abilities. You’re at risk falling asleep during the day, even if you fight it. Stimulants like caffeine are not able to override your body’s profound need for sleep.”

We have several options for magnesium supplementation at Long Natural Health. You can take magnesium either as a single supplement, or in combination with other minerals.
Bio Nativus has two options for you. First, we have their trace mineral drop concentrate. It provides 250 mg of magnesium per serving, along with potassium and a wide range of trace minerals.
Alternatively Bio Nativus offers a well-balanced calcium, magnesium, and zinc powder. Each serving contains 450 mg of magnesium in addition to several other minerals. This is a great option for someone who is also looking to supplement their calcium intake.
Premier Research Labs also makes a magnesium powder, but in pure form rather than with other minerals. It dissolves in water and has a pleasant watermelon flavor. Each serving has 400 mg of magnesium, as magnesium lactate.
Magnesium Taurate, from Cardiovascular Research, is another excellent choice. Magnesium in this form is highly bio-available and helps promote relaxation. It’s useful for those looking for relief from tense, painful muscle cramps and is also beneficial for anyone who has heart issues such as angina or arrhythmia.
