Do you wake up in the morning feeling so tired that it seems like you didn’t even sleep? You probably hit that snooze button a few times while trying to convince yourself to get up. Trust me, you are not alone because we have hundreds of people emailing us asking for help.

They tell us that they have struggled with sleep throughout their life and it negatively affects their family, work, and productivity. They are so sleep deprived that by afternoon, they already start dozing off and are desperately waiting to get back to bed.

Magnesium is a very important mineral since it is needed by every cell and organ to function properly. It is widely known for muscle/cramp relief, stronger bones and most importantly, sleep and relaxation.

Magnesium Benefits for Sleep, Bones, Anxiety and Stress

Research shows that up to 80% of Americans are magnesium deficient[1] Magnesium is essential for helping you cope with stress. It promotes deep, restful sleep and is essential for strong, flexible bones.

Magnesium is essential for the production L-Glutathione and ATP (the body’s master antioxidant and energy molecules), and to repair the damage that oxidative stress does to your cells’ energy making machines (mitochondria). Magnesium is crucial for cardiovascular and immune health and supports healthy blood sugar levels. According to the Mayo Clinic, magnesium deficiency contributes to muscle cramps.

Magnesium helps the brain and body relax so that you can get into that deep sleep you need to feel rested.

  1. It binds to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors which are responsible for quieting down nerve activity helping you sleep soundly. [2]
  2. Regulates the hormone melatonin, which controls sleep-wake cycles in your body. Proper melatonin levels help you achieve that deep and restful sleep so you wake up refreshed and ready to go in the morning. [3]

For a goodnight's sleep...

If you want to wake up in the morning with the best night sleep you haven’t had in a long time, the smoothie we created below is for you. You will wake up in the morning ready to tackle life challenges like you have never done before.

This smoothie contains Ionic-Fizz™ Magnesium Plus™, a powder that, when mixed with water becomes a delicious beverage that helps restore healthy magnesium levels. Each serving provides 300 mg of pure, ionic magnesium. The ionic fizz aspect is important, because ions are the only mineral forms absorbed by both active protein transport and passive diffusion. It also provides 13 other nutrients to aid in magnesium’s absorption and utilization in the body. There is simply nothing else like it anywhere.

Add to it the banana and kiwi, which also promote sleep, and cherries for extra antioxidants and anti-inflammation, and you've got a refreshing smoothie that's perfect for your bedtime routine!



1 Kiwi, chopped
1 Banana, chopped
½ cup Yogurt
½ cup chopped Tart Cherries
½ cup Coconut Water
1 serving Ionic-Fizz™ Magnesium Plus™



  1. In a blender add the kiwi, banana, yogurt, cherries, coconut water, and Ionic-Fizz™ Magnesium Plus™.

  2. Blend on high until creamy and smooth, scraping down sides as needed.

  3. Serve as is or layer with Greek yogurt and top with desired toppings.
