Why we love magnesium and the best time to take it

Magnesium seems to be the current superstar of supplements, taking center stage in the wellness community and blowing up on TikTok. Seeing all the buzz, we decided to do our own research and try it out for ourselves. Was it worth the hype? Absolutely, and here’s why it’s been added to our list of must-have supplements, especially before nighttime. If you’re experiencing low magnesium symptoms, you might have higher blood pressure, higher blood sugar, more headaches, muscle cramping, worse anxiety, and trouble sleeping. So, let’s get into why magnesium needs to be on your radar.

Alright, let’s talk science for a minute. Bear with us—this is useful information, we promise. Magnesium is an essential macronutrient that plays a key role in the body’s processes. We’re talking about everything concerning muscle, nerve, and bone health, and keeping those mood swings in check. Essentially, it’s like the active mum of minerals, doing a bit of everything to keep your body in top-tier shape.

Now, there are different types of magnesium, and they do have slight differences. While many foods are rich in magnesium—like spinach, almonds, and avocados—it might not be enough if you’re deficient. That’s why it’s recommended to take 400–420 mg for males and 310–320 mg for females daily. 

But hey, we’re not doctors, so please check with your doctor before starting any supplements. We’re just sharing what works for us. For the girlies, magnesium glycinate can help reduce cramps and PMS symptoms. Trust us, this has been a game-changer for many of us!

So, what’s the best time to take this supplement? From our experience and research, the best time to take magnesium is either early in the morning after your meal or before bed after your dinner. 

For us, the goal is always to have a great night’s sleep, and magnesium can help achieve that. So, you can also give it a try by taking your doctor-advised dosage right after dinner and before bedtime, and prepare to knock out. It’s truly magical how it can help you drift into a peaceful slumber.

Incorporating magnesium into our daily routine has been a total game-changer. The benefits, from helping to reduce cramps and PMS to improving sleep, make it well worth considering. We think you’ll find it as beneficial as we do, but remember, it’s always best to check with a healthcare professional to tailor it to your needs. You know we’re particular about what we put in our bodies and how we do it.

We hope this little insight into the world of magnesium has been helpful and relatable. We’re all in this together, trying to find the best ways to take care of our bodies and minds. Here’s to a healthier, more restful you!
