TRI-Magnesium Sleep combines three highly absorbable forms of magnesium with relaxation-supporting botanicals to promote restful sleep. This easy-to-mix powder provides 300 mg of elemental magnesium per serving. The botanicals in this product may support a healthy response to stress and enhance sleep quality and duration. With a delicious lavender and lemon flavor, it is naturally sweetened with monk fruit and does not contain artificial sweeteners or stevia.
A blend of Montmorency cherry powder, California poppy, and lavender extract is included in TRI-Magnesium Sleep. Studies have shown that Montmorency cherry powder (Prunus cerasus) supports sleep quality and duration by promoting melatonin metabolism.
According to animal studies, California poppy (Eschscholzia californica) has sedative and calming properties. Clinical studies have demonstrated that lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) extract improves sleep quality. Studies have shown that magnesium supports sleep and a healthy response to stress. Magnesium supplementation has also been shown to improve sleep time, sleep efficiency, and serum melatonin.
What makes up Tri-Magnesium Sleep?
Unlike other forms of magnesium, magnesium orotate contains orotic acid, which your body uses to make genetic material, including DNA. There are no strong laxative effects associated with this form, and it is easily absorbed. (1)(2)
Magnesium glycerophosphate is the ideal form of magnesium for boosting sleep quality. By activating the parasympathetic nervous system, it helps the body and brain relax. In addition, magnesium boosts the sleep hormone melatonin, which binds to GABA a neurotransmitter responsible for calming the nervous system. (3)(4)
Magnesium Biglycinate Chelate Taste Free
In this product, magnesium amino acid chelate is absorbed via dipeptide channels, bypassing the usual active transport and passive diffusion routes for intestinal ion absorption, where magnesium would otherwise compete with other minerals. Compared with many other forms of delivery, magnesium is absorbed more quickly and is better retained by the body when delivered this way. By protecting magnesium from binding to phytates and tannins, it enhances bioavailability and reduces absorption interference. (5)(6)
Montmorency Tart Cherry Powder (Prunus cerasus) (fruit)
Tart cherry may help reduce insomnia and increase the amount of sleep you get each night. Tart cherries naturally contain melatonin, a hormone responsible for sleepiness. Tryptophan and anthocyanins found in tart cherries may help the body produce melatonin and prolong its effects. It has been shown that tart cherry juice helps improve sleep quality and duration by increasing levels of melatonin. (7)
In contrast to melatonin and valerian, the two most studied natural products for insomnia, tart cherry juice seems to be just as effective. Oxidative stress may contribute to degenerative brain disorders like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. In addition to antioxidants, tart cherries contain other beneficial plant compounds that may protect brain cells. (8)(9)
Tart cherry contains many vitamins, minerals, and beneficial plant compounds that boost the immune system. Research suggests tart cherries may prevent infections due to their high antioxidant content. (10)
California Poppy Extract (Eschscholzia California Cham.) (aerial parts)
There are a variety of plant compounds in California poppies, including alkaloid segments. GABA receptors are found throughout your central nervous system, and these compounds act on them. Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) inhibits neuron firing through GABA receptors. It is one of the main neurotransmitters responsible for regulating sleep. (11)(12)
Several studies suggest that California poppy extract reduces anxiety and sedation in humans and animals. Studies from the 1990s and early 2000s should, however, be viewed with skepticism due to their age.
California poppy extract, for example, was found to have anti-anxiety and sleep-inducing effects in mice in an older study. In another older rodent study, the extract was found to relieve pain in the animals. (13)(14)
Lavender Extract (Lavandula officinalis Chaix ) (flower)
Lavender may also provide support for people with anxiety. In a large meta study found that people with anxiety disorders who took 160-milligram lavender oil capsules experienced significant decreases in anxiety. Other studies have found similar results. (15)(16)
On study involving 60 people in a coronary intensive care unit. The researchers found that those treated with lavender essential oil had lower levels of anxiety and better sleep. (17)
