We LOVE magnesium for the mood benefits—and have since our first CALM launch in 1982. But the fact is, magnesium is essential for over 300 processes in the body, yet most of us don’t get enough of it. So even if you’re taking your magnesium for serenity, you’re also doing far more for your total health and wellbeing.
Our favorite benefit of magnesium, by far, of course, is how well it works to support a balanced mood and healthy response to stress. It also eases tension and helps you relax.*
Because it’s involved in melatonin regulation in the body, magnesium can help prepare your mind and body to relax into sleep.*
When we say magnesium is an essential mineral, we mean it. Your muscles need it in order to contract and relax. That means the more active you are, the more you may need it to help support healthy muscle function.*
Brain & nervous system function
Magnesium protects the lining of your nerves and helps your nerves talk to each other. Ultimately, this all supports overall healthy nerve and brain function.*
Another reason to love magnesium? Your heart. Not only does it help maintain healthy blood pressure levels, but it’s also required for normal heart contraction.*
Keeping up your daily levels of magnesium helps you maintain healthy bones. When you don’t get enough, your body’s ability to absorb calcium and vitamin D might be impacted.*
