Sometimes, taking too much of one kind of magnesium causes digestive side effects. So this may be avoided by using a combination of three high-quality, gentle types of magnesium — malate, orotate and taurinate — in equal amounts and small batches. Importantly, magnesium citrate was left out, which is in many commercial magnesium supplements and can irritate sensitive systems.
Morning Magnesium can be great for folks who want to:
- Wake up with more energy
- Support cardiovascular health, circulation and mood
- Have regularity and smooth digestion
- Soothe muscles
- Ease mild stress and anxiety
- Ease mild headaches
What does Morning Magnesium do?
You may be surprised to learn that every little cell in your body contains magnesium and needs it to function. Yet studies suggest that about 48% of the U.S. population gets less than the recommended daily amount of this critical mineral.
So Smidge® Morning Magnesium was formulated to provide you with a refreshing, gentle, mag-infused energy boost, all while going easy on digestion.
This morning blend supplement works in the body by:
- Facilitating the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a busy molecule that provides energy*
- Supporting brain function and mood*
- Supporting cardiovascular health and circulation*
- Contributing to the proper function of muscles and nerves (relaxing them, too)*
- Helping to maintain optimal digestion*
Don’t forget the boron in this morning supplement, which supports bone growth and maintenance and helps absorb all of that beautiful magnesium.
Magnesium’s crucial role
Depending on which studies you read, magnesium is responsible for between 300 to 800 enzyme-driven processes in the body. Many of these are nervous system-related enzymes. This reflects magnesium’s important part in physiological and pathological function.* And, magnesium is critical for the absorption of vitamin D, which helps regulate calcium to influence bone growth and maintenance.
Further, Morley Robbins, founder of the magnesium-driven Root Cause Protocol, made a shocking discovery in researching hundreds of scientific studies: Magnesium deficiency, or insufficiency, was at the center of… common modern health issues due to its central role in activating 3,751 proteins, and thus thousands of enzyme systems.*
To really soak in all of the magnesium your body needs, it is recommended to use this morning supplement in combo with Smidge's bedtime magnesium supplement, Evening Magnesium.
Stress management and mental health
Here are more incredible ways magnesium supports mental health.*
Increases calming GABA: GABA is thought to play a role in controlling mild anxiety, stress and fear.* Decreased GABA levels are associated with several neurological and mental health conditions like depression, and other medical issues. GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that lessens a nerve cell’s ability to receive, create or send chemical messages to other nerve cells.
Reduces stress hormones: Excess levels of the primary stress hormone cortisol contribute to anxiety, brain fog, depression, mood swings, memory loss, dementia, concentration problems, insomnia and mental disorders. Magnesium may restrict the release of stress hormones and acts as a filter to prevent them from entering the brain.*
May ease mild anxiety: Magnesium deficiency is a contributor to anxiety and panic attacks. Under stress, the body creates stress hormones that cause a cascade of physical effects, all of which consume magnesium. The link between anxiety and magnesium is so connected that researchers say magnesium levels must be increased to ease anxiety.*
