Goodnight Lotion for a Better Night’s Sleep

22 February 2013 - Posted by Ashley under ,

The time has come – finally! Yes, we’re very excited to announce that our much anticipated new addition is available at last!

Ancient Minerals Goodnight Lotion

One of the many issues plaguing a vast spectrum of our society – an issue that spans age, gender, lifestyle, and health status – is poor or inconsistent sleep quality.

The benefits of a good night’s sleep reach far and wide as a key factor in helping maintain overall health and well-being. More than simply altering your energy levels, a lack of deep, quality sleep results in a change in brain activity, immune response, organ function and even gene expression. Surprising, isn’t it?

Ultimately, our goal in creating our Goodnight formulation was to attempt to tackle this burden in the same way that we have tackled other issues – transdermally. In that respect, we feel that we’ve hit the nail directly on the head.

Melatonin

Melatonin as a nutritional supplement is probably best known for its use as a sleep promoter – which is certainly one of the reasons we selected it for our formula. This vital hormone is also a prevalent and powerful antioxidant with a multitude of uses ranging from anti-aging hormone, to immune booster, to radiation protector.

On top of the more common uses, melatonin has also been used effectively by physicians and clinical researchers in the treatment of some mood disorders, migraines, and even a number of neurological issues such as periodic leg movement.

In bygone days, when plant derivatives were the only way to obtain extraneous sources of chemicals like melatonin, flora such as Feverfew and St. John’s Wart were used in tinctures, tonics, and topical salves and packs. Although the majority of research involving the topical use of melatonin involves its direct antioxidant benefits pertaining to skin health, evidence of deeper influence from transdermal absorption is stacking up.

MSM & Magnesium

Ever since we began a more in depth study of methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) on our journey to creating our Ultra formula, we’ve been taken in by the sheer multitude of uses for this valuable compound.

Despite our use of MSM primarily as a means to help increase skin permeability and absorption, it has also been used successfully in sleep studies as a means to relieve respiratory issues such as snoring and sleep apnea.

And lastly, it shouldn’t be any wonder that our magnesium makes for the ideal “base” to this formula. Given its ability to help relax the body from muscles to nerves while also aiding in the production and regulation of those hormone “puppet-strings” of sleep, topical magnesium is already capable of significantly impacting sleep quality.

By combining these three ingredients into a topical application, we’re confident that we’ve found a potent and efficacious means of delivering a better night’s sleep.

    Melatonin helps me sleep! I do now what I would do without it!

    So in a question forum somewhere (I can’t remember how I found it exactly) a while ago a representative answering questions about AM magnesium products said that the oil is next to impossible to put in a lotion because of it’s make-up somehow. So I’m wondering is this the same magnesium oil you produce and sell and if so how are you able to make it into a lotion then with the other ingredients? Also is this a roll on or pump or just a regular twist off top? I have been using your oil and it helps with sleep a great deal but it also has some application draw backs so I’m interested in this sleep formula (since that’s when I use it) Thanks

    I love this lotion…..,if I don’t apply it to my “affected areas” before I go to bed my restless leg syndrome is out of control. This is a controlled pump bottle, so a specific amount comes out per pump. I use one pump worth on each of my buttock cheeks and sleep is just around the corner for me.
