Is the buzz around magnesium for sleep warranted?
There's a lot of buzz around magnesium and sleep, and with good reason!
What is magnesium anyway?
Magnesium is an essential mineral involved in more than 300 biochemical pathways in the body, including ones that promote relaxation. By helping to quiet the nervous system, magnesium can help your body and brain relax so you can fall asleep faster and stay asleep.
Magnesium, a team player!
Magnesium also regulates the hormone melatonin, which guides sleep-wake cycles in your body. Not only that, magnesium helps slow the release of stress hormones and can help moderate our cortisol response.
And to really get into the weeds here, magnesium helps calm your nervous system by binding to GABA receptors and activating them. GABA then acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain, promoting relaxation and calming the nervous system. When we have optimal levels of GABA in the brain, we fall asleep faster & reach deeper levels of sleep.
