There is a strong link between insomnia and magnesium deficiency especially in women. Magnesium is one of the 24 essential vitamins and minerals and its super powers have for many years been under-rated.
Magnesium is a mood stabilizer, bone builder, muscle relaxer and most importantly sleep promoter.
- Magnesium helps people to sleep more deeply with fewer wakings. Those who take magnesium report that they sleep more soundly.
- It supports the restorative process of sleep by joining forces with a sleep-promoting neuro-transmitter known as GABA.
- Magnesium reduces the symptoms of Restless-Leg Syndrome which often interfere with sleep quality.
- It also helps to relieve muscle pains in adults and growing pains in children.
- Magnesium relieves the symptoms of anxiety which can be linked to difficulty with sleep onset.
Could adding some magnesium to your life improve your sleep?
If you are deficient (which many stressed people are) then the answer is yes.
Foods rich in magnesium include:
- Dark leafy greens
- Seeds and nuts
- Squash, broccoli and other vegetables
- Dairy products
However, to be sure you are getting enough, you may want to add a magnesium supplement to your daily routine.
