Magnesium's Role in Sleep

Magnesium is nature’s finest relaxant and has a calming effect on the entire body. Using the BetterYou™ transdermal magnesium range helps to relax muscles and get rid of excess tension helping to maintain a good quality of sleep.

Could deficiency be keeping you up at night?

It is well known that poor sleep can have a dramatic effect on our health and well-being. What is less well known is that a deficiency in magnesium can be one of the main factors affecting the quality of sleep we can achieve. The body needs magnesium to maintain a state of rest and a lack of magnesium can lead to restless muscles that can keep you awake at night.
