Mellö Magnesium FAQs
Which form of magnesium is best for absorption?
Magnesium Glycinate is considered to be the best form of magnesium when it comes to absorption, which is why we use it in our Mello Magnesium products. It calms down your body and mind, has a wide range of health benefits, and doesn’t just pass through your system like other less efficient types of magnesium.
Two other types of magnesium that are also highly absorbent are Magnesium Citrate and Magnesium Lactate gluconate. We use both of these types of magnesium in our Mello Magnesium products alongside Magnesium Glycinate to ensure you experience the full potential health benefits of taking magnesium. Magnesium Gluconate is the most orally bioavailable magnesium salt and can be beneficial to consume if you have a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium Lactate is another type of magnesium salt. It’s closely linked to your energy levels and helps prevent excitotoxicity through the regulation of your neuronal activity.
Can magnesium help with sleep?
Our Mello Magnesium helps to relax your body and mind, thereby increasing your chances of staying asleep throughout the night and experiencing high-quality REM sleep. If you suffer from sleep conditions such as insomnia, Mello Magnesium may help alleviate your symptoms and maintain healthy energy levels. Magnesium glycinate in particular helps to calm your body and mind, reduce stress, and improve sleep. In addition to this, our Mello Magnesium products contain natural calming aminos such as GABA and l-theanine, which further help you to relax both physically and mentally.
How much magnesium should I take daily?
It's recommended to take around 300mg of magnesium per day. You don't want to exceed the stated dose as taking too much magnesium can sometimes result in negative side effects. Our Mello Magnesium comes with an easy-to-use dosage scoop, so you can be sure that you're including the right amount of magnesium every time you use it. You'll also find instructions on how much to use for each of our products on the bottle label or outer packaging.
What are the benefits of taking magnesium supplements?
From improving the quality of your sleep and strengthening bone health to regulating your blood sugar levels and providing pain relief, magnesium supplements really do have a range of health benefits. Our Mello Magnesium supplements support positive cognitive function, too, so you may also see a reduction in symptoms of anxiety and an improvement in your exercise performance.
Can magnesium supplements help with anxiety?
Yes, magnesium supplements may help if you’re experiencing anxiety. One of the main ingredients in our Mello Magnesium is Magnesium Glycinate, which is well-known for its ability to calm your body and mind. It also contains GABA, an amino acid that helps to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. Taking magnesium regularly may help to regulate your neuronal activity and promotes healthy sleep, too, which also helps to reduce feelings of anxiousness.
Can magnesium supplements help with muscle cramping?
If you’re experiencing muscle cramps, magnesium supplements may help to reduce your discomfort. Magnesium Glycinate, an active ingredient in our Mello Magnesium products, is effective at reducing pain levels because it helps your body to relax by interacting with a variety of receptors in your body. Magnesium deficiency is also a likely culprit when it comes to muscle cramps, so taking magnesium supplements can help to replenish your body’s stores and reduce muscle cramping.
The Best Magnesium Supplements of 2021
What makes Mellö the best? It’s simple.
The secret’s in the Superblend: 3 highly absorbable forms of magnesium, plus powerful amino acids, lemon made citric acid, and 72 trace minerals sourced sustainably off the Irish coast.
Tested and certified by a third-party laboratory.
3 Most Absorbable Forms of Magnesium
Mellö is a full spectrum magnesium supplement that blends three of the most bioavailable and absorbable forms of chelated magnesium to ensure the widest range of whole body benefits.
Why? Because there is no point to taking a supplement that passes straight through you before your cells can use it.
Magnesium Lactate Gluconate
Magnesium lactate gluconate is the magnesium salt of lactic acid and gluconic acid. As its name suggests it combines the benefits of magnesium lactate and magnesium gluconate into one form.
Magnesium gluconate is the salt formed by combining magnesium with gluconic acid. It demonstrates the highest oral bioavailability of magnesium salts and is recommended for treating magnesium deficiency.
Magnesium lactate is a salt formed by binding magnesium with lactic acid. Lactate is a compound naturally produced by the body for various purposes, many of which are related to wakefulness, arousal, and energy production. It has been found to prevent excitotoxicity by inhibiting excess neuronal activity and can be used as a source of energy.
Magnesium Glycinate is the most bioavailable form of magnesium, magnesium glycinate has a calming effect on the brain and body, making it the preferred magnesium for helping to reduce anxiety and promote healthy sleep. It is also known to promote bone health, manage blood sugar regulation, amplify exercise performance, and help with pain related issues.
Aquamin Magnesium Citrate
Aquamin-Mg, or Aquamin Magnesium Citrate is a natural magnesium source derived without coastal impact from the clean waters off the Irish coast. It contains 72 additional trace minerals and is bound to citric acid for enhanced bioavailability and absorption.
Magnesium citrate supports healthy digestion and regularity by causing the intestines to release water into the stool. This softens the stool helping to relieve constipation. As such, it is a common ingredient in many laxatives.
Mellö contains just enough magnesium citrate to promote regularity and healthy digestion without causing undesired laxative effects.
Magnesium citrate also helps regulate calcium transport across cell membranes and is commonly used to prevent arrhythmia because it causes artery walls to be more flexible thereby reducing the risk.
2 Powerful Amino Acids
Mellö blends the amino acids l-Theanine and gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) to promote enhanced cognitive performance, immune function and relaxation.
l-Theanine is an amino acid found in tea leaves. Research suggests it may have a wide range of health benefits including enhanced mental focus and cognitive performance, better sleep, improved immune system function, and increased relaxation without drowsiness.
l-Theanine has also been shown to have positive effects on nutrient absorption and transport such as the ability to regulate glucose, lipid, and protein metabolism.
Gamma-Aminobutyric acid, or GABA, is an amino acid naturally produced by the body. It’s various roles include acting as an inhibitory neurotransmitter and a mediator of the endocrine system.
GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain and nervous system, which means that it suppresses or quiets down neuronal activity to promote rest, relaxation and healthy sleep. It produces natural calming effects by attaching to GABA receptor proteins. This can help with feelings of stress, anxiety, fear or restlessness.
Research also suggests that GABA acts as an endocrine mediator that influences a diverse array of gastrointestinal tract (GI) functions including intestinal motility, gastric acid secretion, lower esophageal relaxation as well as the inhibition of GI carcinogenesis and tumor growth.
Citric Acid from Lemons
Citric acid is a weak acid that plays various important roles in the body. Naturally found in coffee, lemons, and other citrus fruits, citric acid is an alkalizing agent that makes the urine less acidic, acts as an antioxidant to combat free radical damage, and enhances the absorption of minerals in the body.
Perhaps most importantly, citric acid is essential to metabolism and energy production. A central component of the citric acid cycle, a.k.a. the Krebs cycle, citric acid is a driver of cellular respiration and enables the chemical reaction responsible for metabolizing food into energy.
Unlike common products on the market Ned does not use lab made citric acid which is created by black mold, Aspergillus niger as it feeds on sugar. The citric acid in Mellö is naturally sourced from lemons.
72 Trace Minerals
Trace minerals are those which the human body needs in tiny amounts to perform vital functions. These include synthesizing hormones, metabolizing food, regulating blood sugar levels, building bone and cartilage, preventing tooth decay, wound healing, immunity and every other major function in your body.
