I usually have real bad insomnia and can't get to sleep for at least an hour, sometimes two, after laying down and then I wake up throughout the night and have issues falling back to sleep. I usually wake about 2 hours after I finally fall asleep....
But, I started taking 120mg of Magnesium (citrate/malate
) every night, about an hour before bed
, over a week ago and already I find it a lot easier to fall asleep (about 15-30 minutes), I stay asleep for longer periods of time (about 4 hours now), and when I do wake up it doesn't take as long to fall back to sleep. I love Magnesium....Plus, it's a natural muscle relaxer
And, just like you, I eat healthy (organic all natural whole foods-Vegetarian turning Vegan) most of the time.
My cheats are usually stuff like Amy's Meals, Boca "meat", etc. And that's about twice a week.
I do have a weakness for sugar....but most of the time I bake my own stuff so it's 100% Organic and Vegan.
But, it's still sugar which does not help Anxiety at all
I also take B12 and I'm also planning on adding Niacin to my little supplement regimen.
Niacin is extremely helpful when it comes to any mental illness and a deficiency in it will cause all kinds of issues like depression and disorientation.
Anyways, Magnesium has been helping me.
