Smidge® Evening Magnesium (formerly Good Night Maggie™)

  • Gentle magnesium glycinate complex

  • Supports rest and relaxation*

  • May ease mild stress and leg cramps*

  • No fillers, additives or preservatives

  • Non-GMO

  • Free of common allergens

Smidge® Evening Magnesium is a gentle, calming supplement made with a premium form of magnesium called glycinate complex.  

All-natural and easily absorbed, Evening Magnesium helps you relax, sleep and wake up the next morning feeling refreshed — not groggy and foggy-headed, like with commercial sleep aids.*  

And unlike other magnesium supplements for sleep, our formula is super clean and made in small batches. This means no common allergens and additives that might interfere with a restful slumber and digestion. Plus, it doesn’t include magnesium citrate, which may cause gastric upset, or magnesium oxide by itself, which is difficult to absorb. 

One capsule of Smidge® Evening Magnesium will begin to wind down your day, in addition to helping fulfill your body’s essential need for magnesium. It also may help reduce feelings of mild stress and restlessness — and soothe sleep-disturbing leg cramps.*

100 mg of magnesium per capsule (as Chelamax® magnesium bisglycinate, magnesium oxide*)

60 capsules (2-month supply)

What does Smidge® Evening Magnesium do?

Magnesium is one of the most natural ways to help with a good night’s rest.* So we created an all-natural sleep supplement with magnesium glycinate complex that everyone can love, even people with sensitivities. 

This way, Evening Magnesium supports deeply satisfying sleep, without unpleasant side digestive effects.

But magnesium goes far beyond getting your zzzs. Depending on which studies you read, magnesium is responsible for between 300 to 800 enzyme-driven processes in the body, many of which support the nervous system. This reflects the important role potentially played by magnesium in physiological and pathological function.* Here are more well-documented benefits of magnesium glycinate complex:

  • Provides a concentrated form of magnesium in an easy-to-absorb form
     
  • May ease feelings of stress and mild anxiety*
     
  • Helps relax muscles and reduce mild leg cramps by reducing c-reactive protein and other markers of inflammation*
     
  • Supports elimination and helps the body digest and break down food for energy*
     
  • Helps you feel more alert throughout the day (following improved sleep) thanks to magnesium's critical role in activating ATP, the stored form of energy in cells
     
  • May ease mild headaches*
     
  • May support blood sugar regulation and therefore, ease mild inflammation*
     
  • Supports blood pressure regulation and heart health*
     
  • Supports healthy cell function, cellular repair and antioxidant status*
     
  • May ease mild premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and period cramps by relaxing the smooth muscle of the uterus and by reducing the prostaglandins that cause uncomfortable periods*

As to potentially easing stress and mild anxiety, magnesium supports central nervous system function by helping regulate neurotransmitters, which send messages throughout your brain and nervous system.* It also may reduce the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis for a calming effect.*

Another huge role magnesium plays is aiding in the body’s regulation of calcium, potassium and sodium. It supports the absorption of calcium into the bones, rather than the tissues where it could cause health imbalances. And, magnesium is critical for the absorption and activation of vitamin D, which also helps support bone growth and maintenance.*

For a morning pep and additional magnesium supplementation, Morning Magnesium makes a fantastic companion to Evening Magnesium.

Dosage:

Always start with a smidge! Take one capsule, one to three times daily with food, or as directed by a certified medical practitioner. (See “low and slow” note below.)

How to take: Evening Magnesium should be taken with food at night or about a half-hour before you lay down to sleep. For best results, take Smidge® Morning Magnesium to start your day with pep and clarity — and to soak up a total of five different types of premium magnesium between the two products. 

Start low and slow: Smidge® supplements are premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it’s critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a very small dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what dosage feels right for you.

Storage:

Store in a cool, dry area, away from direct light.

Shipping:

This product is shelf-stable, does not require refrigeration. We’ll send it to you via UPS or FedEx Ground shipping that includes tracking.

We take pride in making sure your orders are handled with the utmost care, and that they arrive swiftly.

Ingredients

Magnesium (as magnesium glycinate complex)

Magnesium oxide

Vegetarian capsule

Magnesium (as magnesium glycinate complex)

Magnesium is a naturally-occurring mineral that’s essential for nearly every system in the body, especially the muscles and nerves.

When magnesium is combined with the amino acid glycine, the result is magnesium glycinate. This combination makes the magnesium extremely bioavailable. The magnesium glycinate complex also includes magnesium oxide (see below).

Magnesium oxide

A form of magnesium, also known as magnesia, magnesium oxide is a solid white mineral. It’s often recommended for heartburn and to ease symptoms of indigestion.* Magnesium oxide helps your body utilize the magnesium it has absorbed.

Vegetarian capsule

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), water. Our vegetable (vegan) capsules consist of only two ingredients: HPMC and purified water. HPMC is derived from vegetable cellulose of either pine or poplar. 100% natural, these capsules contain no preservatives, no gelatin, wheat, animal by-products or starch.

FAQ

Magnesium is prevalent in many foods. Why would I need a supplement?

Morley Robbins, founder of the magnesium-driven Root Cause Protocol, made a shocking discovery in researching hundreds of scientific studies: Magnesium deficiency, or insufficiency, was at the center of… common modern health issues due to its central role in activating 3,751 proteins, and thus thousands of enzyme systems.* This is why the extensive utilization of magnesium throughout the body is undeniable. 

In addition, magnesium is not manufactured in the body and therefore, the retention is extremely low. And low magnesium intake is linked to chronic inflammation, one of the drivers of premature aging, being overweight and chronic health conditions.* 

Studies suggest that about 48% of the U.S. population gets less than the recommended daily amount of magnesium.

Nuts, leafy greens, beans, seeds, avocado (and, yes, unprocessed dark chocolate!) are all high in this mineral. But your diet may be limited. And even when we eat these magnesium-rich foods, they still can fall short. 

Due to a depletion of soil minerals, many foods do not deliver the nutrients they once did. That’s why in addition to the whole foods they eat, nutrition-conscious folks often choose a premium magnesium supplement like Smidge® Evening Magnesium.

What foods are good sources of magnesium?

Lots of goodies. In general, foods containing dietary fiber contain magnesium. Check out the list below for your favorite nutritional sources of magnesium (RDA means recommended daily allowance).  

  • Pumpkin seeds: 46% of the RDA in a quarter cup (16 grams)
  • Spinach, lightly steamed: 39% of the RDA in a cup (180 grams)
  • Swiss chard, lightly steamed: 38% of the RDA in a cup (175 grams)
  • Dark chocolate (70 to 85% cocoa): 33% of the RDA in 3.5 ounces (100 grams)
  • Black beans: 30% of the RDA in a cup (172 grams)
  • Quinoa, cooked: 33% of the RDA in a cup (185 grams)
  • Halibut: 27% of the RDA in 3.5 ounces (100 grams)
  • Almonds: 25% of the RDA in a quarter cup (24 grams)
  • Cashews: 25% of the RDA in a quarter cup (30 grams)
  • Mackerel: 19% of the RDA in 3.5 ounces (100 grams)
  • Avocado: 15% of the RDA in one medium avocado (200 grams)
  • Salmon: 9% of the RDA in 3.5 ounces (100 grams)

It’s also important to note that many commercially available grains are processed in ways that remove the nutrient-rich germ and bran, lowering magnesium content substantially.

Why are healthy magnesium levels difficult to retain?

Magnesium is not manufactured in the body, but we need it for virtually every system in the body to work smoothly. So many opt to get it from food or clean supplements. Each person burns magnesium at different rates. Factors that contribute to low magnesium retention include age (the older you are, the less you retain), stress, exposure to aluminum and the body excreting magnesium through urine and sweat glands.

Why is magnesium glycinate complex so important?

Smidge® Evening Magnesium uses magnesium combined with the amino acid glycine to create magnesium glycinate — a unique compound that’s highly bioavailable and well-tolerated by even the most sensitive individuals. To take it a step further, we add magnesium oxide which helps your body utilize the magnesium your intestines have absorbed. 

Here’s the nitty-gritty on this special chelated form of magnesium (another name for it is chelated magnesium bisglycinate): 

  • It gives you the most concentrated form of magnesium in an easy-to-absorb form, as noted above.
  • It buffers the pH in the intestines, allowing for more magnesium to be absorbed via the passive pathway of magnesium absorption.*
  • It reduces the hydration shell that usually surrounds elemental magnesium. This not only helps with absorption, but seems to help limit magnesium's potential laxative effect.*
  • It allows some of the magnesium to be absorbed via the amino acid active pathway, thus providing two ways for the body to make use of magnesium. 

In addition:

  • Magnesium glycinate saves your body from attaching amino acids to the magnesium for active absorption because they're already chelated onto the magnesium.
  • The glycine occupies active receptors on the magnesium, interfering with phytate and other nutrients that can attach to magnesium and inhibit absorption.
  • Glycine also seems to help you sleep more deeply and feel more alert throughout the day.

So you can soak it all in!

How many hours before going to sleep would you recommend taking this?

You can take Smidge® Evening Magnesium about a half-hour before going to sleep. You can also experiment and see what works best for you, as every individual responds differently to different types of magnesium.

Is it better to eat something with Evening Magnesium?

It helps to take this supplement with food, as it’s better for absorption of the magnesium and digestive comfort. (Who doesn’t love snack time?) And if you can, take it with an easy-to-digest, nutrient-dense food, as Smidge® supplements work best with a clean, real food diet :)  

And for those with low stomach acid, try some lacto-fermented veggies or apple cider vinegar with food about a half- hour before taking your Evening Magnesium. (You can also try Smidge® HCl + Enzymes for low stomach acid production.)

Can I take Smidge® Evening Magnesium and Morning Magnesium together?

Definitely! Evening Magnesium and Morning Magnesium are designed to work together, so they complement each other beautifully. That’s why many of our customers take one upon waking and one before their sweet dreams. This way, you can enjoy five different types of magnesium that work in synergy to supply your body throughout your precious 24 hour cycles — the optimal way to manage your magnesium levels.

Can this be taken as a powder without the capsule?

Yes! You can take Smidge® Evening Magnesium as powder if you open up the capsule. It works best mixed with a smoothie or something blended, as it may not dissolve as well in just plain liquid.

Or you can try taking it under the tongue and then quickly chasing it with a sip of some fresh juice or spring water.

Where is this magnesium sourced and created?

Smidge® Evening Magnesium is sourced and produced in the U.S.

Evening Magnesium - Leg Cramps Gone

So far the Mg is helping with my evening tight muscles and leg/foot cramps so I'm happy. It's not helping with sleep, however, as I'm still waking up at 3 am.

Smidge®

Thank you, Tricia! We are grateful to hear your feedback about Smidge Evening Magnesium. We are happy to hear your legs are feeling like dancing legs. Foot cramps are not fun. Perhaps adding Smidge Morning Magnesium would be helpful to fulfill any magnesium needs. You could also try to increase the amount you use in the evening. Best regards.

Fantastic

I love this product. It’s the best one you can buy. I highly recommend this product.

Smidge®

Thank you, Joe! You are making us blush:) We do this knowing Smidge Evening Magnesium can be helpful to so many people. Kids can use it too. The lack of this mineral in our soils makes it hard to get your recommended amount from just food. Not only that, Magnesium might be needed in higher doses for some due to stress, lack of nutrition, and medications. Smidge Evening Magnesium will float in and have you on a cloud for restful sleep. It can help prevent leg cramps and muscle jerks from those who work out intensely or may be dehydrated. We appreciate your support!

This is fantastic news, thank you for your 5-star review. Smidge Evening Magnesium does the job of relaxing the body for the best night's rest. Some like to take it after dinner and give it time to work and others take it right before bedtime. Unlike other magnesium supplements for sleep, our formula is super clean and made in small batches. This means no common allergens and additives that might interfere with a restful slumber and digestion. Plus, it doesn’t include magnesium citrate, which may cause gastric upset, or magnesium oxide by itself, which is difficult to absorb. Best wishes:)
