Update & Review of ‘Isotonix Turn Down’

So in the wee hours of this morning I was awake and wrote a blog post over on my main blog. You can read it here:

I since have an amazing update. I am just thrilled!

While I was writing that blog post I drank this Turn Down supplement. I used warm water and it was so soothing and calming. I liked it so much that I made myself another one to sip on. So I ended up having two 8 oz servings.

It made be very relaxed and sleepy so when I finished writing my last blog post I went back to bed. It was around 6:15 am. And here is the awesome part….

I did not wake up at all until 11:15 am and when I did wake up I felt like I had slept for 10 years. I felt amazing. And it gets better. I am gonna get personal here. I went to the bathroom and had this amazing soft and gentle poop. I knew right that that not only did the Magnesium in this product soothe me and put me to sleep but it helped me to relax the colon and bowel and thus an amazing morning bowel movement!

It felt like Win-Win-Win I tell ya. I am still feeling amazing and couldn’t wait to share this product review here.

What did I take?

Ingredients in Isotonix Turn Down

There are fabulous ingredients in this supplement but I really want to point out the Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamin C, and L-Tryptophan among others! And I was pleasantly surprised to see 500 IU’s of Vitamin D3!

There has never been a better time than now to make sure that you are getting an adequate intake of Vitamin D.

I think this supplement is superb and I for one will use it when I need to relax or sleep or need help with having an extra easy bowel movement. 🙂

My Magnesium Hack

When you find a hack you love, sometimes you just have to share it!

Most people are deficient in the mineral magnesium. Magnesium is important for so many things. They call magnesium, “the calming mineral”. I feel much calmer since discovering my hack that I share in this post.

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and supports more than 300 enzyme systems. It supports normal energy release, regulation of the body temperature, nerve function, adaptation to stress, metabolism and much more. One of the main mechanisms of magnesium in the body is its support of normal protein synthesis. Normal protein synthesis relies on optimal magnesium concentrations, as magnesium supports the normal delivery to the building blocks of life – our DNA – of signals that triggering the expression of amino acids. In other words, this process supports the body’s normal ability to “make” proteins.

The recommended daily value for adults is 400 mg of magnesium. However, average daily intakes are much less. A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that most U.S. adults – especially those over the age of 30 – were receiving, on average, approximately 290 mg of magnesium daily. That study also showed that dietary intake is particularly low among women. Unfortunately, inadequate levels of magnesium have been linked to poorer concentration, memory and cognitive function and muscle discomfort. Sleep quality is associated with higher levels of magnesium and when these levels are low, sleep quality may suffer.

Here are 10 Key Roles of Magnesium in a Nutshell:

1) Magnesium helps to maintain normal muscle function.

2) Magnesium helps to maintain normal nerve function.

3) Magnesium helps to keep heart rhythm steady.

4) Magnesium supports a healthy immune system.

5) Magnesium helps to keep bones strong.

6) Magnesium helps regulate blood sugar levels.

7) Magnesium helps to promote normal blood pressure.

8) Magnesium is involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.

9) Magnesium serves as a building block for RNA and DNA synthesis.

10) Magnesium is a precursor for neurotransmitters like serotonin.

It is estimated that 80% of the North American population is deficient in Magnesium.

So with that said, I personally have taken a hair mineral analysis to find out that I too, am magnesium deficient even though I take supplementation! There are many factors that can affect mineral absorption and uptake in the body and heavy metals can play a key role in mineral deficiency.


Heavy metals are very toxic and they can interrupt the absorption, metabolism, and use of essential minerals, such as magnesium, calcium, iron, and zinc. This leads to a deficiency of some minerals, which can cause health issues. There are several ways metals and minerals interact with one another that impact your susceptibility to toxic metals and increase your risk of experiencing negative health effects, including serious health issues and deficiencies like magnesium deficiency.

So onto my hack. I have found something that I have been using which is an easy way to add in more magnesium. I find that both for myself and my clients, nothing works unless you use it and that is why I love this product, I find I am very good at adding it into my daily routine so it is helping me increase my magnesium levels on a daily basis and it is enjoyable to use!

It is a magnesium lotion with great ingredients like organic coconut oil, shea butter and has no scent! I love it. It is my new go-to hand lotion and I smile everytime I use it because I love it on my hands and I know it has added benefits that have a huge impact on my health.

This lotion contains 185 mg of elemental magnesium per teaspoon so I use it a few times a day to add in the extra magnesium I need. And as an added bonus it even has the added benefit of containing Lactobacillus ferment, a potent probiotic, which I love.
