Why Low Magnesium Could be Keeping You up at Night

Magnesium is essential for human health. In particular, Magnesium helps you fall asleep and stay asleep. Clinical studies show that the vast majority of people in modern society don’t get enough magnesium in their diet for optimal functioning.[1]

Magnesium calms the nervous system and can regulate the hormone Melatonin, which guides your natural sleep/wake cycles. A lack of magnesium can cause frequent awakenings, so it is no surprise the research shows that magnesium supplements in the evening can improve sleep quality.[2] Confirmed in the book Modulation of Sleep, there is a link between low magnesium and poor sleep quality.

So what can you do about it?

Current guidelines suggest that 400 mg (men) and 310 mg (women) is the recommended daily amount. Peak Rest delivers a whopping 320mg of super high-quality German Magnesium per serving. So it is no wonder we are seeing such good feedback in terms of Peak Rest’s impact on sleep.

Other great sources of magnesium include dark leafy green vegetables, avacados, nuts and seeds.

Remember, if you work out hard, your optimal intake of magnesium could be higher than average to take care of those worn-out muscles.
