Why should you take magnesium? How much should you take?

“The recommended daily intake is 300 milligrams for a man and just slightly less for a woman. 

Many people use up more than average amounts of magnesium on a daily basis, but the good news is that it’s really easy to top up your magnesium levels. 

We recommend taking a magnesium glycinate supplement, between 100 and 200 milligrams.”

How can magnesium help you get a better night’s sleep?

If you’ve been struggling to get a good night’s sleep, you’ll be pleased to discover the role magnesium can play in helping you drift off.

Sarah explains;

“If we’re not topping up our magnesium levels, then our body stores can be depleted. One consequence of that is our sleep can be affected, as magnesium helps to facilitate a number of neurotransmitter functions in the body that help to influence our sleep. 

Taking magnesium in its glycine form can really help to support sleep, as it can help to calm neurotransmitter function and ensure we’re going to have the best opportunity for a good night’s sleep.”

What can I do to reduce my infertility anxiety?

This can be an incredibly complex topic, Sarah so rightly acknowledges, but stress around infertility is very common. 

“There are a few things that you can do around the usual diet and lifestyle recommendations for stress. For example, magnesium is really important to manage stress hormones and reproductive hormones. 

Topping up with something like magnesium glycinate supplements works on your calming neurotransmitters and helps to minimize the impact of some of that stress.”

Incorporating magnesium for stress and sleep into your routine can significantly improve your overall health and well-being, aiding in stress management and reducing infertility anxiety.

Remember to consult with your healthcare provider for the right dosage. Prioritize self-care and embrace the tranquility magnesium can bring to your nights and days.
