Why Melatonin Makes Sleeping Problems Worse
Melatonin supplements are popular natural sleeping aids. But taking them too often can ruin our sleep quality... and even change how the brain works!
Staggering through the day bleary eyed... foggy brained... and bad tempered is never fun.
So it’s no wonder lots of people are turning to melatonin supplements to get more shuteye.
But what most people don’t know is that melatonin supplements can wreak havoc on our sleep cycle… alertness... and even how our brains work.
The good news is that a safer alternative now exists.
And this solution can help us feel sharper... smarter... and younger too.
Melatonin Acts as the Brain’s Alarm Clock
What is melatonin, exactly?
Melatonin is a hormone our bodies make naturally.1
And it acts like our brain’s alarm clock - telling us when it’s time to feel sleepy and when it’s time to wake up.
But like many things in the body...
We struggle to make enough melatonin as we age.2
Modern diets and staring at screens all day can also make our melatonin levels plummet.
So that we find it harder to sleep... to stay asleep... and then end up feeling groggy and lousy throughout the day.
However, there are two ways of helping to support melatonin levels at their peak.
Option one is to eat foods containing melatonin... like tomatoes, walnuts, and bananas.3
But the problem is that you’d have to eat them by the truckload to get enough melatonin.
In fact, to get just 0.3 mg of melatonin you’d need to eat over 1,500 pistachios... or nearly 4,000 bananas a day!4
So it’s no wonder people are choosing option two…
Which is to take melatonin in supplement form instead.
Melatonin Supplements Wreak Havoc to the Wake-Sleep Cycle
Feeding the brain a huge dose of melatonin may work wonders for jet lag, shift work, or the odd bout of poor sleep...
But long-term use of melatonin supplements can turn our days into a waking nightmare.
Firstly, because a standard supplement can flood the brain with 60 times the melatonin it needs.5
This then can cause our natural sleep-wake cycle to go haywire…
STOP our brains making melatonin altogether...6
And result in a dangerous reliance on melatonin supplements to get any sleep at all.
But even worse than that…
Taking melatonin supplements night after night can skyrocket our blood melatonin levels.
And trigger nasty side effects like...
X Stomach discomfort
X Low moods
Taking melatonin long-term is a TERRIBLE option for our sleep quality… our productivity… and our general health.
The good news is there’s now a third option.
An option developed by Nobel prize winning scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
And an option that helps the brain to make all the melatonin it needs on its own…
Naturally and without side effects.
Feed Your Brain the Melatonin Building Block Instead
The MIT solution revolves around feeding the brain the one key mineral it needs to make melatonin on its own: MAGNESIUM.9
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in our bodies.
And plays a vital role in all sorts of biological processes, including the creation of melatonin.
But the problem is that most types of magnesium can’t reach our brains from the foods we eat, or even from supplements.
Because the brain has a defensive wall called the blood-brain barrier.
It’s like a wall that keeps toxins out and allows only nutrient rich blood in.10
But sadly, our blood-brain barrier also blocks magnesium from entry.
This explains why the root cause of poor sleep may not be low melatonin at all…
But a lack of magnesium in the brain.
The good news is that the smart folks at MIT found a way to fix that.
An MIT Breakthrough for Getting Better Sleep
What the MIT scientists did was to invent a new type of magnesium called Magnesium-l-threonate.
Or MagTein for short.11
What makes MagTein special is that it’s the ONLY form of magnesium able pass through the blood-brain barrier
And is the only form of magnesium able to support the production of melatonin…
Along with promoting calm moods... mental clarity… and even how young our brains act and feel.
The stunning benefits of MagTein for our brains were demonstrated in a groundbreaking MIT study.
In the study, MIT scientists gave subjects a daily dose of MagTein for three months.
The subjects were also given brain performance tests, at the start and the end of the study.
Then after comparing their scores…
The MIT scientists’ jaws dropped when they saw the subjects’ brain scores had improved across the board.
In fact, their brain performance had improved so much…
It was like they had the brain power of people 9 YEARS YOUNGER.
Let’s repeat that…
The MIT scientists found that taking MagTein for 12 weeks REVERSES brain age 9 whole years!
And this vast improvement can be directly linked to MagTein’s ability to promote peak levels of melatonin...
And to support healthy, restorative sleep as a result.
Swap Melatonin for MagTein for a Better Night’s Sleep
So the science is clear...
For anyone wishing to support deep, rejuvenating sleep the answer is NOT to flood the brain with melatonin…
But to feed the brain MagTein instead.
So the brain can make melatonin on its own naturally…
Support healthy, rejuvenating sleep…
And enable people to feel sharper… smarter… and even mentally younger!
The even better news?A breakthrough new method has been developed for helping to support the brain with peak levels of mind sharpening MagTein…
