Magnesium is the fourth most common mineral in the body. It is a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems necessary for human body functions, including the regulation of muscle contractions and relaxation, energy production, nerve conduction, and gating of calcium channels.
Magnesium has been shown to support sleep and a healthy response to stress. Laboratory studies suggest magnesium deficiency affects circadian cycle and sleep disorders.
A placebo-controlled, clinical trial randomized participants to either a magnesium group or a placebo group. In this study, both subjective and objective markers were assessed, and statistically significant improvements were indicated for sleep time, sleep efficiency, sleep latency, serum melatonin, and serum cortisol concentrations.
A cross-sectional analysis of 3,604 adult medical records in a primary care setting assessed the relationship between serum magnesium levels and depressive symptoms using the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ)-2 and PHQ-9. Findings showed that lower magnesium levels were associated with increased depressive symptoms.
Due to the critical role in many enzyme systems in the body, magnesium supplementation can support sleep and relaxation.* Certain botanicals have been used for hundreds of years to support sleep and relaxation, and recent scientific studies agree. TriMag Supreme™ Night contains lavender, California poppy, and Montmorency cherry powder, which supports relaxation and
