More than 1 in 3 Canadians report at least one symptom of insomnia, including difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep or early morning waking. This is problematic when we consider that inadequate sleep has been strongly linked with chronic health concerns like impaired immunity, low mood and even low bone mineral density. Mag Sleep-Matrix offers a balanced formula of evidence-based nutrients to help your patients get the rest and recovery that they need to stay in optimal health.
Magnesium is well-known for its ability to relax skeletal and smooth muscles, making it a crucial mineral for conditions such as muscle tension and pain. Magnesium also activates the parasympathetic nervous system, blocking NMDA receptors and activating GABA receptors, adding to its calming effects and making it a natural sleep aid for those with an overactive mind. Studies have found that supplementation can improve sleep quality, cortisol release and melatonin levels. Moreover, magnesium has been shown to be beneficial in individuals suffering from anxiety and low mood, common causes of insomnia.
Melatonin is the body’s hormone designed to regulate our circadian rhythm, the cycle that dictates when we should be awake and when we should be asleep. It is naturally produced in the pineal gland and found in various foods such as cherries and walnuts, but more importantly, it has well-established
benefits as a sleep aid supplement. Clinical trials have found that melatonin can reduce the time it takes to fall asleep and improve the ability to stay
asleep, increasing total sleep time and restfulness. Melatonin is particularly indicated for individuals that do shift-work overnight or to prevent jetlag in
people that travel often.
GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an inhibitory neurotransmitter often used to relax the mind in cases of anxiety, stress, low mood and insomnia. Research has shown that GABA can reduce anxiety and reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep, making this amino acid particularly useful in those with difficulty initiating sleep because they cannot calm their racing mind.
Collectively, Mag Sleep-Matrix contains 125 mg of elemental magnesium, 100 mg of pure GABA and 2.5 mg of stable melatonin per vegetarian capsule. This makes Mag Sleep-Matrix a gentle, yet effective, option for patients with insomnia due to stress, anxiety, circadian rhythm errors and chronic pain.
