Our body is equipped with all the tools we need for a good night´s rest. However, more and more people have problems falling (or staying) asleep. Apart from daily routines, cognitive methods and other remedies to promote sleep, there is another healthy way getting more restful sleep – in fact, your body might even be deficient in it already: Magnesium. It supports sleep quality, helps you to fall asleep easier and reduces symptoms of restless leg syndrome.

Magnesium is a multitasker. As an essential mineral in our bodies, Magnesium plays a role in myriad of health benefits – bone health, metabolism, blood sugar regulation, and nerve and muscle function, among other things. And, no surprise, it plays a crucial role in sleep, too.
