Difficulty in getting to sleep, cramps or waking frequently during the night: these are all common sleep disturbances which may be caused by different things, such as a poor diet, excessive consumption of nerve-exciting drinks, a sedentary lifestyle and, in particular, stress.
Especially during busy, tiring times, our body tends to consume more magnesium, and this is why UltraMag® can offer valid support in replenishing the body’s natural reserves, helping to restore the correct balance and help us to relax and sleep well at night.
The role of magnesium in fostering rest and preventing sleep disorders
Magnesium is a fundamental element for the health and well-being of our body. In addition to significantly contributing to reducing tiredness and fatigue, it also contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system and psychological function.
With a direct effect on neurotransmitters, including melatonin, magnesium contributes to regulating the sleep-wake cycle, stimulating the body to synchronise with its natural biological rhythm. The role played by magnesium in helping night-time rest is also linked to its relaxing properties, which act on the muscles to control contraction and relaxation processes.
If you have trouble resting well or suffer from sleep disorders in certain periods, in addition to taking magnesium before going to bed, you should avoid excessively stimulating activities for the nervous system, including:
- sporting activities late in the evening;
- spending too much time using electronic devices (computers, tablets, smartphones);
- playing video games and watching TV;
- working or studying after dinner.
All these activities cause excitatory responses, when linked to existing stress, and have a negative impact on night-time rest. On the contrary, relaxing activities such as reading a book, listening to peaceful music or having a hot shower can help us to reduce tiredness and fatigue and sleep better.
Restore natural magnesium reserves with UltraMag®
With its unique formulation with Sucrosomial® Magnesium, a single sachet of UltraMag® every day provides 100% of the DRV (Dietary Reference Value) of magnesium.
The application of Sucrosomial® Technology helps the magnesium to pass through the gastric environment unaltered, as it is protected by a matrix of phospholipids and sucrose esters (sucrosoma), which improves its efficacy and tolerability. After passing through the stomach, Sucrosomial® Magnesium is absorbed in the intestine and is made available to the body, also limiting the onset of those unpleasant side effects normally associated with the administration of magnesium.
In cases of magnesium deficiency, first of all it is recommended to adopt a healthy balanced diet, rich in foods that guarantee the correct intake of minerals and nutrients. Hydration is also essential for maintaining stable magnesium reserves: water alone provides 10% of the daily requirement, so don’t forget to drink at least 1.5/2 litres of water every day!
