How to improve your sleep with Magnesium
Ever since I had my daughter I’ve found it incredibly difficult to go to sleep at night. This phenomenon is known as “restless leg syndrome” (RLS) which makes you feel that as you lay in bed your legs want to keep on moving so you begin to twitch and it generally just makes it hard for you to relax. Find out how to improve your sleep.
Thankfully, I came across a post on social media about putting a bar of soap under your sheets before bed to help deal with the issue at hand. While that mildly comforted my RLS, a recent visit to my local naturopath helped me crack the code for my restless legs at night! I am forever so grateful and I feel the need to share my experience. My naturopath mentioned to me the importance of magnesium & sleep and how they go hand in hand. Magnesium used to be found naturally in our soil, however, today that is not the case. Unfortunately, farming practices only deplete our soil and they never put any minerals back. She said that it is estimated that “over 70% of people are magnesium deficient” as a result. This holds true for her clients as the majority tested were magnesium deficient, including me. Magnesium helps you relax your nerves and gives you a restful sleep. So magnesium and sleep are crucial to our health. If you want to test if you are deficient in magnesium, it is as easy as going to your local naturopath to get the hair strand test kit.
Fortunately, you can supplement your magnesium intake to help boost those levels. Which in turn will help you sleep better, relax and actually give you more useful energy and not the nervous kind. You can easily buy it on Amazon for a reasonable price. See below for a good grade quality supplement.
