Is magnesium good for sleep? The science says yes!

Magnesium plays a critical, and sometimes under-recognized, role in our overall health. Magnesium is found in dark, leafy greens; seeds and nuts; and legumes. And maintaining a proper magnesium level in your body plays a key role in energy production, as well as the regulation of other important vitamins and minerals.

Magnesium also contributes to your cardiovascular health, it maintains fluid balance in the body, and it can actually help stabilize your mood. Join Dr. Michael Breus as he explains just HOW magnesium works in the body, why you need it for your sleep, and how to get more magnesium in your diet.

  4. I heard from several doctors that if you don’t sleep well for a long time you should just take melatonin and that it is not something addictive. is it true?
