This Calcium and Magnesium sleep aid supplement supplies 1000mg of Calcium and 500mg of Magnesium per 4 capsules. Dr. Oz's recommendation is 600mg of calcium and 400mg of magnesium. We recommend taking 2-3 capsules per day to meet this recommendation. This bottle will then last you 30-45 days.

The minerals in Solaray Calcium and Magnesium are reacted with whole rice concentrate rather than ordinary soy, yeast, or milk proteins which are commonly used to chelate minerals. The special rice concentrate used is approximately seven times higher in amino acid content than ordinary rice and is preferred by many over soy.

Calcium is directly related to our cycles of sleep.  Studies have shown that calcium levels in the body are higher during some of the deepest levels of sleep.  Studies have also shown that disturbances in sleep, especially the absence of REM deep sleep or disturbed REM sleep, are related to a calcium deficiency.

In magnesium deficiency, chronic insomnia is one of the main, central symptoms.  Magnesium helps act as an antidote to stress and help improve your sleep.  It is one of the most powerful relaxation mineral available.  You must have it for your cells to make energy, for many different chemical pumps to work, to stabilize membranes, and to help muscles relax.

Magnesium and calcium are both sleep boosters, and when taken together, they become even more effective.
