I started taking magnesium glycinate before bed, so that my muscles would relax, helping me to fall asleep.
As I also tend to hold stress in my jaw, I also use this supplement to help stop jaw clenching which often lead to stress headaches.
There is much scientific research backing so many uses of magnesium bisglycinate supplementation. There are many more professional studies being done as we speak. For now, here are few examples of the benefits:
Decreases anxiety, depression and stress
Helps with insomnia
Improves heart and cardiovascular health
Control chronic pain problems
Reduces migraine frequency and severity
Reduces general headache frequency and severity
Increases testosterone levels in men and helps women’s hormone balance
Controls blood sugar and protects against type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure
Helps irregular heartbeat or heart palpitations
Helps fibromyalgia and osteoporosis
Helps leg cramps
One last little tidbit: take magnesium bisglycinate with vitamin B6 to improve better absorption of the magnesium.
Magnesium bisglycinate is four times more effective than citrate forms of magnesium.
