Magnesium helps activate melatonin, the sleep hormone that is triggered by low light (usually in the evening). Magnesium also regulates the nervous system and relaxes the muscles, both of which can help improve sleep problems.
Magnesium supports sleep, but it isn’t a sedative. You can take it during the day and not feel sleepy. If you need to sleep during the day, try taking Natural Calm a half hour before you plan to sleep and resting in a dark room, with a sleep mask and earplugs, ideally!
