34 year-old nutrition student, Anne Lecomber use to lay awake for hours each night until she used her nutritional knowledge to source a solution to her sleep problems.
“I suffer from anxiety and depression, and found it extremely difficult to have a good night’s sleep. I’d lay there worrying and normally get up in the night.
“This has really impacted my everyday life, as I was very tired and the lack of sleep was exacerbating my anxiety and depression.
“I am a nutrition student who has read studies on how magnesium can benefit mood disorders, as well as sleep. I used to also compete in fitness shows, and the harsh dieting would sometimes cause insomnia.
“I use BetterYou MagnesiumOil Goodnight Spray as soon as I get out of the shower before I go to bed. I previously had no bedtime routine and would stay up as long as I could so I didn’t wake up for it all to start over again.
“I now relax before falling asleep and enjoy being in bed. I am also waking up feeling more rested.
“Sleep is so important to my lifestyle and it really affects my mood if I am sleep deprived. It also makes me worry about not sleeping, making my anxiety worse.
“I would absolutely recommend these products to anyone who has trouble sleeping, the Goodnight Spray also smells really nice with the infused essential oils.”

Stress and sleep
Almost half of Britons say that stress or worry keeps them awake at night, with health problems impacting on how well we sleep. Not only do health problems affect quality of sleep, but also the amount of sleep people have. Of those who sleep for less than five hours per night, one in three suffer from insomnia and one in five suffer from depression or anxiety.
Recent studies suggest that magnesium has a calming effect on the nervous system and can help ease anxiety, relax muscles and nerves helping maintain a good quality of sleep.
When your body is magnesium deficient it’s as if your cells and nerves are on edge. Going to bed in this state means neither your body nor your mind can relax and you toss and turn all night. Simply helping your muscles relax by giving them the proper amount of magnesium turns off that tension and allows you to slip into sleep.
