Our founder John, started sleeping more soundly immediately after incorporating magnesium oil into his healthcare regimen. And we’re happy to report that this is a common benefit that is often a major attraction when people first learn about supplementing with magnesium oil.
After all, a good night’s rest goes a long way towards health, and settling for less than that just won’t do.
A study conducted by the Human Nutrition Research Center found that a diet high in magnesium is connected with sleeping more soundly and without interruptions. (1) Sufficient levels of magnesium aren’t a guarantee for a good night’s sleep, but being deprived of magnesium pretty much ensures that you won’t sleep well. (2)
The science behind it...
Magnesium has a hand in several bodily processes that impact whether or not you’re able to get some shut-eye.
Magnesium is an excellent stress reducer by promoting the production of hormones that reduce stress and anxiety, so if worries about work or bills are keeping you up, magnesium oil can be a great line of defense.
Magnesium is a critical component of correctly functioning GABA receptors. GABA is a calming neurotransmitter that helps the body and brain calm down, and as you know, you need a quiet mind in order to drift off to sleep.
Magnesium also works to naturally relax muscles so that your body can let go of tension and rest. (3) Plus, adequate magnesium levels regulate hormones to help you stay asleep through the night.
Our favorite way to apply magnesium oil to promote sleep is by taking a minute to rub our feet (both the tops and the soles) with several sprays of magnesium oil as we’re getting ready for bed. It’s a relaxing way to end the day, and we sleep like babies every time.
Here’s to sleeping better with every spray!
