Magnesium is an essential nutrient found inside of every cell in the human body. It is critical to over 600 cellular reactions and 300 essential functions in our bodies including memory and brain function, nerve and muscle health, sleep, mood regulation, energy and our physical response to stress.


Despite magnesium's life sustaining functions, research suggests some 75% of Americans are not consuming enough of it. Magnesium deficiency may be the root cause of a laundry list of modern ailments from anxiety and depression to insomnia and stress. Feeling better could be as simple as restoring your magnesium levels. That’s why we say Minerals Before Meds!

Magnesium deficiency is common because it is difficult to get the recommended daily intake of magnesium from diet alone. This is because the nutrient composition of our food has steadily declined over the past century, so much so that the foods we’ve traditionally relied on for magnesium are themselves deprived of magnesium.

To give you an idea, today you would have to eat 4 carrots to get the same amount of magnesium from 1 carrot grown in 1940! It takes eating 3 cups of boiled spinach or 17 cups of broccoli or 3 pounds of salmon A DAY to get enough magnesium through diet alone. That’s why magnesium supplements are becoming more and more popular.

Magnesium supplements can help bridge the gap between what you consume in your daily diet and the recommended daily intake. That’s why we created Mellö.

Mellö blends three different highly bioavailable types of Magnesium with GABA and L-theanine for an added boost.

Aquamin magnesium citrate is included for its 70 trace minerals and is essential for nerve and muscle health, digestion and regularity. It is the most nutrient dense form of magnesium on earth. This certified organic marine plant multimineral complex is sustainably sourced from the pristine waters of the North Atlantic. Unlike a lot of magnesium citrate out there, Aquamin Magnesium Citrate is very gentle on your stomach and easy to digest.

Magnesium L-threonate is included for brain absorption and is the most advanced form of magnesium in the world. It is one of the only types of magnesium that has been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier, giving your brain a superboost by directly supporting memory, brain function, and neuroplasticity. 

Thirdly, we added Magnesium lactate gluconate for blood, bones, and muscles. It is among the most bioavailable forms of magnesium on the planet. 

We also added GABA which works to reduce the activity of neurons in the brain and nervous system, contributing to healthy sleep, pain relief, reduced anxiety, and lower blood pressure.

For added support for stress and anxiety, we added L-theanine, an amino acid most commonly found in tea leaves, which helps promote relaxation without drowsiness. Studies suggest L-theanine can decrease anxiety, improve immunity, promote healthy sleep, and help regulate the body’s stress response.

To use Mellö, add one scoop to 8-10 oz cold cold water, a smoothie, or your favorite beverage.

And here’s the secret to success in all things, not just natural remedies.

1. Give it time. Everything worthwhile in life takes time.

2. Be consistent. Consistency is the difference between good and great.

3. Find your sweet spot. The best path is the one that fits you.


“I've been taking Magnesium before bed for ages, but I could tell a difference immediately with this Ned product over the product I had been using previously. Worked great - calming before bed and slept well. I won't be switching back.”-Shelby

“I've taken magnesium supplements before (in pill and powder form) and I can say without a doubt that Mello is my favorite! I take it in the evening before bed and sleep so well. Ned really crushed it with the addition of this new product!” -Char
