How well you get through your day and how well you sleep at night are highly inter-related. Daytime inflammation in excess leaves extra inflammation in your nerves at night which gets in the way of sleep. A new study with adults shows that 320 mg per day of supplemental magnesium1 can lower inflammatory CRP and help sleep.

Magnesium is one of the most common and widespread deficiencies, even in healthy people. A problem with sleep often represents a magnesium deficiency.  Many people benefit from taking magnesium at bed to help sleep. However, even taking magnesium during the day to lower daytime inflammation (wear and tear) can help sleep.

If you don’t sleep well then you are more tired and more inflamed the next day. Thus, magnesium is a tool that can help you break out of this rut by lowering inflammation. You’ll sleep better, wake up rested, and have a less-inflamed day simply by starting out on a better footing.
