Do supplements for focus actually work?

Taking focus supplements (such as our brain blend and Mellö magnesium) will provide your brain and body with a range of benefits that will in turn help to improve your ability to focus. By getting better quality sleep, reducing your anxiety and stress levels, and boosting your brain functionality, you’ll soon notice a significant improvement in your ability to focus when taking our focus supplements daily.

Can magnesium supplements help with focus?

Our Mellö Magnesium supplements have over 300 whole-body benefits, including helping you to stay focused. Magnesium supplements help to increase brain function and focus by calming the mind and boosting your memory. They also improve the quality of your sleep, meaning that you feel more refreshed when you wake up and your focus levels are more likely to remain high throughout the day.

Can magnesium help reduce brain fog?

Magnesium has a calming effect on the brain which helps to reduce brain fog. Magnesium glycinate, one of the forms of magnesium that are used in our Mellö Magnesium products, is well-known for its relaxing effects on the brain and ability to help improve focus.

Can supplements for focus boost retention?

People with magnesium deficiency might find it more difficult to transfer information from their short-term memory to their long-term memory. Our focus supplements help to boost retention by improving your memory and calming down brain activity, making it easier for you to retain and recall information.

What does magnesium do for the brain?

Magnesium binds to the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors in your brain and helps to stimulate them, increasing your GABA levels. GABA is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain that reduces neuronal excitability by inhibiting nerve transmission. This means that magnesium slows down brain overactivity and helps you to relax and concentrate without getting easily distracted. You should experience a reduction in your anxiety and stress levels and notice an improvement in your sleep quality, too.

How much magnesium should I take for brain health?

To experience the maximum benefits of our magnesium supplements, you should use them consistently on a daily basis. Our Mellö Magnesium products all come with individual sachets or an easy-to-use dosage scoop, so you know just how much to use each time. We recommend that you add one sachet or scoop of Mellö Magnesium to your glass of water once a day. Each serving provides you with 300mg of magnesium.

Which types of magnesium are good for brain health?

The best form of magnesium for mental health is magnesium glycinate, a highly absorbable form of magnesium that is combined with the amino acid glycine. This type of magnesium reacts with the GABA levels in your brain to increase alpha waves and decrease beta waves. This ensures that you experience reduced levels of anxiety and stress. It can also help you fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night, as well as helping you feel more calm overall.

What are the 10 signs of low magnesium?

The 10 signs that you might have low levels of magnesium are:

  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Abnormal heart rhythm 
  • Irritability and/or mood swings
  • Numbness/tingling in legs or hands
  • Muscle spasms
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite  
  • Shaking

However, these symptoms are not always directly related to magnesium deficiency. If you’re unsure about what’s causing your symptoms, it’s important to seek medical advice before taking magnesium supplements in case you have another underlying condition that needs to be addressed.
