Why You Need a Magnesium Powder Supplement?

Stress… it’s the wallpaper of our lives. Too much stress can:

  • Distract us (Ever feel like you have 100 thoughts racing through your mind?)
  • Make us feel irritable (Ever overreacted to an employee or child?)
  • Cause us to worry unnecessarily or excessively (Ever felt so wrapped up or drained by one concern?)
  • Make us feel overwhelmed (Ever feel anxious about all that’s on your plate?)
  • Make us feel helpless (Ever have so much to do you don’t even know where to start?)
  • Zap our motivation (Ever feel like all your energy has been sapped?)
  • Lead us to poor food decisions (Ever find yourself reaching for “comfort” foods?)
  • Cause us to make bad choices (Ever regret a choice you made when you were stressed?)
  • Make it hard to wind down (Ever find yourself reaching for an adult beverage at night?)
  • Keep us awake at night (Ever lay in bed feeling “tired yet wired” because you have a hard time shutting things down?)

If you’re feeling stressed—and more importantly, feeling the burden of too much stress—you’re not alone. The latest American Psychological Association Stress in America poll suggests that, collectively, we are at an all-time-high stress level. Simply put, stress is ubiquitous, and we’re constantly being bombarded with things that can add to our load of worries:

  • Work
  • Money
  • Family
  • Health-related concerns
  • Politics
  • Violence and crime
  • And more

Of course, chronic stress can be downright dangerous. It can interfere with your ability to live a normal life, make you feel tired (but ironically, keep you from getting a good night’s rest), affect concentration, make you feel irritable, and over time, damage your physical health. We’ve all heard about the well-established harmful effects of chronic stress and the plethora of health problems it’s linked to.

If only there were something you could do…

Sure, setting boundaries, practicing yoga, meditating, taking a walk, deep breathing exercises, practicing gratitude, and exercise are all helpful when it comes to stress management. But what if there were another overlooked (albeit mission-critical) piece of the puzzle that was so incredibly simple it would leave you in a facepalm of disbelief?

While there’s no single solution to calm the mind, body, and nerves, there’s one common denominator that’s underappreciated and overestimated: Magnesium.

You see, among its laundry list of functions and benefits, magnesium helps support a healthy stress response, relaxation, rest quality, and mood. For example, research has shown supplementation with magnesium can reduce cortisol levels when study participants are faced with an everyday stressful challenge, such as speaking among a group.

Research has also shown inadequate magnesium intake is associated with feelings of anxiety. It also initiates the body’s stress response and increases the production of stress hormones. On the flipside, supplementation with magnesium has been shown to reduce anxiety-related behaviors. What’s more, a recent systematic review confirmed that magnesium supplementation has a beneficial effect on subjective measures of anxiety and stress.

Additionally, magnesium supplementation has been shown to support relaxation and good-quality rest. In one study, supplementation with magnesium was shown to lead to reductions in sleeping cortisol levels and significant increases in slow-wave sleep, which helped normalize age-related changes in sleep patterns in older study participants.

Speaking of good ol’ rest and relaxation, in a study published in the journal Magnesium Research, researchers found supplementation with 320 mg/day of magnesium for 7 weeks significantly improved sleep quality in men and women with low magnesium status and poor sleep quality (revealed by the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index) at the beginning of the study.

How exactly does magnesium work? For starters, it can’t be overstated how important and ubiquitous magnesium is in the body. Consider this: Magnesium is necessary for the functioning of over 300 enzymes. These enzymes are linchpins for a long list of metabolic reactions in the body. This includes energy production, protein synthesis, muscle and nerve transmission, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation.

Now, when it comes to how magnesium works in the body to promote relaxation, there are a few things you need to know:

  • Without getting too thick into the weeds, magnesium controls the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary adrenocortical (HPA) axis. This is considered to be the body’s main stress response system (the “air traffic control,” if you will). While it’s a bit tricky, what’s important to understand is that it increases the body’s stress “set-point,” leading to an upregulated stress system. On the other side, magnesium supplementation has been shown to down-regulate the activity of the HPA-axis and lower levels of stress hormones (like cortisol and its predecessor, ACTH).
  • Magnesium also helps control the release of certain neurotransmitters, the communication currency. For example, magnesium inhibits the release of glutamate, the body’s primary excitatory neurotransmitter while it increases the availability of the body’s primary relaxing brain chemical GABA. GABA counterbalances the excitatory action of glutamate. Magnesium also helps increase levels of the “feel-good” neurotransmitter serotonin, which helps regulate stress through a range of actions.
  • One of the most important (yet overlooked) pieces of the puzzle is balancing intake of magnesium with calcium. This is mission-critical for proper cellular balance and function. No need to dust off your human biology book. What’s important here is that magnesium and calcium antagonize each other several ways in the body. For example, calcium excites nerves while magnesium calms them down. Calcium makes muscles contract while magnesium helps them relax. Unfortunately, most people consume far more calcium than magnesium, with the dietary calcium:magnesium ratio escalating to > 3:1. While many have argued that the ideal ratio is 2:1, more recent discoveries suggest that a calcium:magnesium balance of 1:1 (or even 1:2) is optimal.
  • Among its negative consequences, this imbalance leads to excessive levels of calcium in cells, which leads to inflammatory stress. In fact, this is thought to be the main reason inadequate magnesium levels contribute to unhealthy levels of inflammation.

Unfortunately, most people aren’t getting nearly enough of this essential mineral. And among its long list of vital functions, magnesium is mission-critical to supporting a healthy stress response, physical and mental relaxation, calmness, and restful sleep (to name just a few).

But sadly, most people—we’re talking at least 75% of folks—don’t get enough magnesium in their diets. (For women, that’s 320 mg per day, and for men, that’s 420 mg per day.) And when you consider that all the following contribute to suboptimal levels of magnesium, it’s easy to see why virtually everyone is missing the mark on this mission-critical nutrient:

  • Poor nutrition
  • Low-carb diets
  • Mineral-depleted soil
  • “Anti-nutrients”
  • Excess calcium intake
  • Digestive-related issues
  • Exercise
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Caffeine intake
  • Stress
  • Getting older
  • Certain medications

Simply put, a large chunk of people are suffering from suboptimal magnesium status, which is a significant nutritional concern for health and well-being.

And when you consider the vast number of people who feel stressed out, have difficulty getting good-quality rest, and struggle with physical and mental relaxation, the connection with magnesium becomes increasingly clear. It also becomes more and more evident that a high-quality magnesium powder is mission-critical to dealing with these problems.

But if there’s any remaining doubt, let’s peel back the layers once more…

What are the Signs of Magnesium Deficiency?

To understand how truly important magnesium is, let’s look at it through a different lens and consider some of the top signs that you’re not getting enough magnesium:

  • Feeling stressed out, worried, and anxious
  • Poor-quality or interrupted sleep
  • Difficulty falling asleep
  • Muscle cramps
  • Depressed feelings of well-being

But that’s far from all. Magnesium is an essential player in bone metabolism, nerve transmission, heart function, neuromuscular conduction, muscular transmission, vasomotor tone, blood pressure, and blood glucose metabolism.

That’s a lot of scientific mumbo jumbo. But what should be clear is that magnesium is intimately involved in how you look, feel, and move. And what it means to you is that magnesium is critical to feeling energetic, achieving peak mental and physical performance, and looking young and vibrant.

To more deeply understand and appreciate the gravity, let’s look through another lens and consider some of the most common signs of magnesium deficiency:

  • Poor appetite management
  • Feeling queasy or nauseous
  • Feeling tired or lacking energy
  • Feeling tingling in hands, feet, fingers, or toes
  • Headaches

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, studies report that upwards of 75% of folks don’t get enough magnesium in their diets. And when you consider that there are other factors that further deplete magnesium or increase magnesium needs (such as exercise and excess calcium intake), it’s likely that an even larger chunk of the people are suffering from a suboptimal magnesium status. This is a significant nutritional concern for health and well-being.

When you consider how challenging it is to get enough magnesium through whole foods, it becomes crystal clear that a high-quality magnesium powder is a linchpin to supporting health and wellness.

What Makes Zen-Zzz the Best Magnesium Powder on the Market?

The unfortunate reality, however, is that not all magnesium supplements are created equal. You see, most magnesium supplements out there suffer from several BIG problems:

  • They use cheap forms of magnesium that have poor absorption.
  • They use inferior forms of magnesium that cause digestive distress.
  • They use inferior forms of magnesium (citrate) that have a laxative effect. (Don’t believe me? Just check the ingredients on some of the popular over-the-counter laxatives.)
  • They don’t provide a meaningful amount of magnesium.
  • They don’t include research-backed ingredients that enhance the relaxation benefits of magnesium.
  • They contain ingredients that have no place in a magnesium supplement, such as added sugar, artificial sweeteners, GMO ingredients, and other “junk”

Then there’s Zen-Zzz, which is not your average magnesium powder. It was formulated with the optimal amount of magnesium (as well as a relaxation tag-team partner we’ll reveal in a moment) to provide you with a truly effective calming product. This relaxing effervescent powder can easily be mixed into a delicious, fizzy drink that can be enjoyed near bedtime to support relaxation and rest quality or used on high-stress days to help ease feelings of stress and anxiety and to support focus and serenity.

Zen-Zzz features 350 mg of magnesium as magnesium taurate and magnesium bisglycinate—highly bioavailable, gut-friendly, and well-tolerated forms of magnesium with demonstrated superior absorption over the most common form of magnesium found in supplements, magnesium oxide.

Magnesium bisglycinate is the element magnesium bound to the amino acid glycine, which is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that supports relaxation and healthy stress management. This form of magnesium is ideal to enhance magnesium’s natural relaxation properties.

Meanwhile, magnesium taurate is rapidly absorbed and has been shown to easily be shuttled to the brain. That may explain why it has been associated with decreased anxiety-related indicators. What’s more, magnesium taurate has been shown to be significantly more bioavailable than magnesium citrate, which is commonly found in other magnesium powder supplements.

The majority of magnesium supplements out there, on the other hand—including one that claims to be “the best magnesium supplement you can find”—use a form of magnesium called “magnesium citrate.” What you might find interesting (depending on how you look at it) is that this is the exact same ingredient that’s found in many popular laxatives.

In addition to magnesium citrate, you’ll also want to keep an eye out for magnesium oxide, sulfate, and carbonate, which tend to be relatively poorly absorbed. And because they linger in the intestines longer, they tend to lead to GI distress, such as diarrhea.

On the other hand, Zen-Zzz features forms of magnesium that not only demonstrate superior bioavailability, they are also gut-friendly, well-tolerated, and without the laxative effect typically experienced with magnesium supplements.

As awesome and powerful as magnesium is at combatting stress, Zen-Zzz is no “one-trick” pony. It also features 200 mg of L-Theanine, a unique, “super-chill” amino acid found almost exclusively in nature in the tea plant (Camellia sinensis). Although tea has traditionally been revered for its catechins (such as EGCG) and caffeine, theanine has become prominent in recent years thanks to its capacity to powerfully support:

  • Relaxation
  • Cognitive performance
  • Feelings of well-being
  • Sleep quality

The relaxation benefits of L-theanine are arguably most noteworthy. For example, research has shown that supplementation with L-theanine helps reduce psychological stress and helps support restful sleep. One way L-theanine seems to exercise its gentle, relaxing touch is by enhancing the production of key neurotransmitters, such as feel-good, relaxing compounds like serotonin and dopamine.

And because it’s structurally similar to glutamate, the most abundant and primary excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain, L-theanine can occupy glutamate receptors and inhibit its reuptake. This means L-theanine is like a multi-tool (increasing relaxing and decreasing stimulatory neurotransmitters) when it comes to helping calm the mind.

What’s more, L-theanine is highly regarded for its anti-stress properties. In a recent study, researchers found that healthy adults who supplemented with L-theanine reported a significant reduction in subjective feelings of stress in response to a stressful multitasking assignment. Three hours after ingesting the L-theanine, the researchers found that the study participants’ cortisol levels were significantly reduced compared to when they were faced with the same challenge without theanine.

Thanks to its anti-stress properties, L-theanine can also support positive mood states and help ease feelings of worry, nervousness, and uncertainty. In addition to its potential effects on neurotransmitters, research has also found that the anti-stress benefits of L-theanine may be traced back to direct effects on the autonomic nervous system. For instance, studies have shown that L-theanine can reduce the acute heart rate, blood pressure, and immune responses to a stressful task.

How to Use Zen-Zzz

Using this relaxing magnesium powder couldn’t get much easier!Conveniently packaged in individual-use stick packs, slowly mix powder into 8 ounces of water. Let fizz, stir until dissolved, then enjoy! We think you’ll love the refreshing raspberry lemonade flavor of this calming, fizzy drink.

We recommend taking one serving of Zen-Zzz daily to support healthy magnesium levels. Many people take Zen-Zzz near bedtime to support relaxation and rest quality. Folks often use Zen-Zzz on high-stress days to help support a healthy stress response, focus, and feelings of well-being.

Practically speaking, mix up a serving of Zen-Zzz when…

  • Work stress bogs you down
  • Financial worries leave you feeling helpless
  • Parenting challenges have you on edge
  • You’d rather not reach for that adult beverage
  • Traffic leaves you wanting to pull your hair out
  • You’re feeling tired yet wired
  • You want the wheels to stop spinning at night

Simply put, any time you’re looking to support a calm, relaxed, zen-like state of mind, look no further than Zen-Zzz!

Because Zen-Zzz is an effervescent magnesium powder, it’s not a good idea to add it a bottle of water, put a lid on it, and shake it up (unless you’re using it as part of a DIY science experiment). Similarly, we recommend adding it to a glass then adding water, not vice versa, as the effervescent formula will be more likely to overflow out of a full glass.

It also features 200 mg of L-Theanine, a unique, “super-chill” amino acid found almost exclusively in nature in the tea plant (Camellia sinensis). Although tea has traditionally been revered for its catechins (such as EGCG) and caffeine, theanine has become prominent in recent years thanks to its capacity to powerfully support:

  • Relaxation
  • Cognitive performance
  • Feelings of well-being
  • Sleep quality

The relaxation benefits of L-theanine are arguably most noteworthy. For example, research has shown that supplementation with L-theanine helps reduce psychological stress and helps support restful sleep. One way L-theanine seems to exercise its gentle, relaxing touch is by enhancing the production of key neurotransmitters, such as feel-good, relaxing compounds like serotonin and dopamine.

And because it’s structurally similar to glutamate, the most abundant and primary excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain, L-theanine can occupy glutamate receptors and inhibit its reuptake. This means L-theanine is like a multi-tool (increasing relaxing and decreasing stimulatory neurotransmitters) when it comes to helping calm the mind.

What’s more, L-theanine is highly regarded for its anti-stress properties. In a recent study, researchers found that healthy adults who supplemented with L-theanine reported a significant reduction in subjective feelings of stress in response to a stressful multitasking assignment. Three hours after ingesting the L-theanine, the researchers found that the study participants’ cortisol levels were significantly reduced compared to when they were faced with the same challenge without theanine.

Thanks to its anti-stress properties, L-theanine can also support positive mood states and help ease feelings of worry, nervousness, and uncertainty. In addition to its potential effects on neurotransmitters, research has also found that the anti-stress benefits of L-theanine may be traced back to direct effects on the autonomic nervous system. For instance, studies have shown that L-theanine can reduce the acute heart rate, blood pressure, and immune responses to a stressful task.

Because Zen-Zzz is an effervescent magnesium powder, it’s not a good idea to add it a bottle of water, put a lid on it, and shake it up (unless you’re using it as part of a DIY science experiment). Similarly, we recommend adding it to a glass then adding water, not vice versa, as the effervescent formula will be more likely to overflow out of a full glass.
