The UK’s ‘always-on’ culture means it is increasingly difficult to get a restful night’s sleep with Brits being as likely to dream about work and their colleagues as they are about their family.
Whether it’s worrying about an upcoming deadline, striving for a promotion or continually checking our emails before bed, it all disrupts sleep patterns.
With more than a quarter of people dreaming about work at least once a week, World Sleep Day (Friday 16 March) is the perfect opportunity to review sleeping habits.
For those feeling tired and not achieving natural restful sleep it is important to top-up vitamin and mineral levels help to regulate and restore the body.
A hero mineral, Magnesium, is one of nature’s best kept secrets. Not only does it fight fatigue and stress but an insufficient amount of cellular magnesium can result in a build-up of lactic acid, causing muscle tiredness, cramps and soreness.
Magnesium assists sleep by helping us unwind and it is an important factor in how our body manages its sleep cycle.
There are several magnesium rich foods that can improve our magnesium intake, however in our current environment we are surrounded by an excess of processed foods, bad fats and refined sugars which are decreasing our levels. In fact, low magnesium levels affect around 70 percent of us.
Ultimately, to boost and maintain magnesium levels, supplementation is the route to take.
Andrew Thomas founder of natural health company BetterYou, said:
Seven in ten of us suffer from low levels of magnesium. It’s a fact that we don’t get enough from our daily diet, and so a supplement that gets straight to where it’s needed is the way to recharge our systems.
Supplementing magnesium transdermally (through the skin) is a superior way to absorb this mineral, and has been proven to work five times faster than tablets. As it is absorbed through the skin, it bypasses the digestive system straight into the body tissue, providing a fast and effective dose directly to where it is needed.
