Dosage of Magnesium Glycinate +Melatonin can be tailored to your personal needs.
Some individuals might feel a bit foggy, when taking 2 or 3 capsules,
so they could just try 1 capsule at night.
Combining the well known relaxing properties of Magnesium Glycinate with the well known sleep regulating properties of melatonin into a powerful, natural, non-addictive and versatile sleep remedy.
Melatonin is a natural hormone made by your body's pineal (pih-knee-uhl) gland, a pea-sized gland located right in the middle of the brain, next to the Hypothalamus.
During the day the pineal is inactive.
When the sun goes down and darkness occurs, the pineal gland is "turned on" by the so-called Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SCN) and begins to actively produce melatonin, which is released into the blood.
Usually, this occurs at around 9 pm.
As a result, melatonin levels in the blood rise sharply and you begin to feel less alert, sleep becomes more inviting.
Melatonin levels stay elevated for about 12 hours - all through the night - before the light of a new day makes them fall back to low daytime levels by about 9 am.
Magnesium and melatonin work together.
Magnesium helps the body’s melatonin production. Think of magnesium as the body’s relaxer - of muscle and mind.
Magnesium suppresses the release of stimulating catecholamines.
This means magnesium deficiency leads to more stimulation = less relaxation.
