Product of the Week: Metagenics MyoCalm PM

A tense body and overactive mind are common reasons why people have difficulty falling asleep. One of my favorite remedies for promoting muscle relaxation and a sense of calm is Metagenics MyoCalm P.M. This product contains a synergistic blend of minerals and soothing herbs to relax your musculoskeletal system, soothe tension, and address occasional sleeplessness. Key ingredients include calcium, magnesium, passionflower, valerian, hops, and lemon balm. I recommend taking 3 tablets at bedtime.

This product pairs nicely with Metagenics Mag Glycinate, which contains a highly bioavailable form of magnesium. Magnesium is an important mineral that supports muscle relaxation and nervous system health. It can also be helpful to preventing nighttime leg muscle cramps. It is estimated that at least 60% of Americans are deficient in magnesium. Medications such as antibiotics, diuretics, and oral contraceptives can deplete magnesium levels. In addition, people with gastrointestinal disorders such as Crohn’s disease also tend to be low in magnesium. I recommend taking 2 tablets daily.
