How Does Magnesium Help Me Sleep? 

Someone once said, "sleep is the most coveted luxury of all," and our CBD Bath Salts really heard that. They've been knocking people out left and right, sending them straight to sleep town for the most solid Zzz's of their life. Here's a review that sums it up nicely:  "When I tell you that I had the deepest sleep that night, I'm talkin' like put me in a rocket ship and blast me into the deepest, darkest depths of space." How do Life Elements CBD Bath Salts provide such a glorious sleep? The secret is in the Magnesium Chloride. 

Magnesium is a mineral in our bodies and also present in many foods. Deficiencies are extremely common even though our body needs magnesium for over 300 biochemical reactions and 600 chemical reactions. That's a lot of reactions, but don't worry—we're only going to focus on a few.

Magnesium for Relaxation 

On a chemical level, magnesium can help our body and brain relax by mobilizing the parasympathetic nervous system, also known as the "rest and digest" system that's responsible for making us calm. When our parasympathetic nervous system is activated, our breathing slows, and our blood pressure lowers, and yes, even digestion is improved. Magnesium helps keep the parasympathetic nervous system in equilibrium with the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for our "fight or flight," aka "panic!" response. So, while soaking in a bath is nice, soaking in a bath full of magnesium rich Life Elements CBD Bath Salts is even better.

Magnesium's Relationship with Melatonin

Healthy magnesium levels can boost brain neurotransmitters that help induce sleep and reduce stress. (Big reveal: Stress is inconvenient for good rest.) Magnesium may also promote melatonin, the sleep hormone some of that you only dream of. When melatonin levels are too low, we struggle to fall asleep because we're missing the hormone that tells our bodies when it's time to start winding down.

Magnesium and Mood

Did you know depression can impair sleep? 75% of people with depression have a hard time sleeping, whether it's falling asleep or staying asleep. Here's good news: A study in 2015 showed magnesium to be an effective treatment to treat depression. In the same study, magnesium was found to improve symptoms of other disorders such as chronic fatigue and postpartum depression. No wonder people are feeling so great after their baths.
