Magnesium Water: What is the hype?

Magnesium Water

If you’re having trouble sleeping, one of TikTok’s latest trends which has 1.5 million views and counting recommends having a ‘sleepy girl mocktail’ before bed which consists of tart cherry juice, magnesium powder and sparkling water to improve sleep quality. But what is the hype and does it really work? 

Magnesium is an essential mineral that people have been taking for years as it plays a crucial role in numerous physiological functions within the human body, from bone health to nervous system support. But those on TikTok are most interested in Magnesium’s contribution to better sleep by promoting relaxation and helping regulate melatonin, the sleep hormone. They also highlight  Magnesium’s positive impact on mood and mental well-being, by playing a critical role in brain function and reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Magnesium as a supplement is a popular way to get your fix but many people find magnesium supplements quite literally difficult to stomach. Magnesium causes the body’s muscles to relax, including those in the gut. As such, it can have a laxative effect – which is why it’s common to experience some form of bloating, gas and digestive discomfort after taking a magnesium supplement. This is why Magnesium powder mixed in water/juice has become more popular – it is more gentle on the stomach, reducing the risk of digestive discomfort that some people experience with pills.

Need a good product to put this trend to test? 

NaturesPlus Magnesium Powder is a TikToker’s dream in powder form available in three fabulous flavours; Orange, Pink Lemonade and Unflavoured (£25.95, amazon.co.uk). Suitable for your daytime or TikTok night-time routine, just add one scoop to your water. NaturesPlus Magnesium Powder restores healthy magnesium levels by delivering 400mg of pure elemental magnesium in a highly bioavailable citrate form, making it easier for your body to absorb.
