Sleep Supplements: Magnesium

We always want to emphasize how important sleep is not only for your health but also your happiness and wellbeing. So anything that can potentially help increase the quality of sleep is always welcome! In this iteration of Sleep Supplements, we will look at magnesium supplements to see if they can help you get a better rest!

Studies on magnesium for sleep specifically is still relatively new, they have determined that a lack of it contributes to poor sleep. In fact, generally speaking, 48% of Americans don’t get enough magnesium in their daily diets. The understanding so far regarding sleep at least is that it helps regulate your sleep and specifically combats insomnia.

For daily supplementation, it is recommended to have 300-420 milligrams daily. If taken too much, it may pose the risk of nausea and diarrhea. With all current research, general magnesium supplementation even not for sleep can be beneficial for your overall health. Like all new supplementation however one should always check with your doctor and see if you can reach optimal levels with proper nutrition before turning to supplementation. Magnesium is found in vegetables such as spinach as well as yogurt and milk.
