Magnesium Glycinate + Melatonin

A natural sleep formula providing 3 milligrams of melatonin plus our highly bioavailable magnesium glycinate

Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland upon the shift from light to darkness, making us sleepy. It suppresses the release of noradrenaline, dopamine, and cortisol. All three of these stimulating chemical messengers can interfere with a good night’s sleep. Healthy melatonin levels are instrumental in feeling refreshed upon waking; they even support the immune system.

About Magnesium Glycinate + Melatonin

Under normal circumstances, melatonin secretion typically peaks between 1 and 3 a.m., but only IF you’re sleeping in total darkness. If this isn’t the case, then release is suppressed and the health-giving benefits of melatonin are missed. Exposure to artificial lights, particularly blue light from electronic tablets, phones, computers and TVs, and even long flights can delay the release of melatonin and wreak havoc with the circadian rhythms that tell us when to rest and when to be alert. Deficiency can even lead to appetite changes, nausea and weight gain.

Lifestyles today often include after-dinner workouts, shift work, airline travel, sedentary jobs, increased screen time and staying up later. No wonder so many of us are experiencing daytime drowsiness, poor concentration, irritability or forgetfulness. These are all symptoms associated with sleep deprivation.

Sleep cycle disruptions affect many groups of people, such as shift workers, frequent flyers, parents of young children, illness, individuals on certain medications, and anyone with chronic stress or anxiousness.

Pure Lab’s Magnesium Glycinate + Melatonin is a natural sleep formula providing melatonin and highly bioavailable magnesium glycinate. It’s a herb-free formulation suitable for bedtime use. Our formula helps to reduce the time it takes to fall asleep in people with delayed sleep phase disorder, and helps to reset the body’s sleep-wake cycle. promotes a deeper, longer, more restful sleep. The inclusion of magnesium glycinate reflects the fact that magnesium nourishes at least 300 essential metabolic activities in the body, including the relaxation of nerves and muscles. With the addition of a low dose of melatonin, the combo supports re-establishment of the sleep-wake cycle, adjustment from jet lag, and overall better sleep quality.

One capsule of our Magnesium and Melatonin provides 20 milligrams of elemental magnesium glycinate and 3 milligrams of melatonin.

Adults may take 1 to 3 capsules one hour before bedtime to help them fall asleep.

If they have trouble staying asleep, they can take 1 to 3 capsules right before they turn out the bedroom lights. This way, the effects will last longer through the night.

If a person has problems falling asleep AND staying asleep, they can take 1 capsule about one hour before bedtime, then 2 more as they turn out the lights.
