Do you have a hard time unwinding at night time? Are you achy and sore after a long day on your feet? Do you feel like your mind is racing with everything that needs to be done the next day? Are you having trouble falling asleep? If you answered yes to any of these, magnesium may be able to help! It can help relax muscles, support nerves, and help you get a good night’s sleep.
Required for more than 300 biochemical processes in the human body, magnesium helps:
• Support a healthy immune system
• Regulate muscle function and helps muscles relax
• Maintain nerve function
• Regulate heart rhythm
• Maintain normal blood pressure
Magnesium’s ability to relax muscles makes it a natural choice as a sleep aid. Calcium makes muscle fibers contract whereas magnesium makes them relax. Too much calcium and not enough magnesium can cause muscles to twitch, spasm, and convulse. Magnesium helps to soothe the muscles, and relaxed muscles lead to more restful sleep.
Magnesium can calm feelings of nervousness and irritability, and help with an inability to relax, all of which may be signs of a magnesium deficiency. When normal cells are at rest, they contain 10,000 times more magnesium than calcium. If our magnesium levels are low, calcium enters our cells when we don’t need it, creating a stimulated state that makes us feel nervous, irritable, and unable to sleep.
This is why we are now offering Pathway Mellow Mag. Pathway Mellow Mag features a highly absorbable, ionic form of magnesium. Available in either natural cherry or lemon flavor, this great tasting effervescent powder provides an immediate sense of relaxation and calmness.
