Magnesium Glycinate for Depression and Sleep
Natural Depression Relief And Sleep Aid
If you are suffering from depression, you may also experience some issues with sleep. Some people with depression sleep too much, while others find it hard to sleep at all. For those of you who find it hard to sleep, you may want to try a natural supplement, known as Magnesium Glycinate.
Magnesium Glycinate has a relaxing effect on the body and can help promote sleep. However, even though it has sedative qualities, it can also help improve your mood. Falling asleep faster and staying asleep at night will help to improve sleep, which can then help to improve mood and give you more energy.
Proper sleep is helpful for people with depression. If you are only getting a few hours of sleep each night, you are most likely staying up thinking negative thoughts. If you can calm your mind naturally, you may find that your sleep habits will get better.
Another good thing about Magnesium Glycinate is that it is natural and rarely causes any side effects. Prescription medications for depression usually have a long list of risks and side effects. It may be beneficial to start out taking Magnesium Glycinate to see if that can help with your depression before taking an antidepressant.
Some people with depression may have low levels of magnesium in their body. This deficiency may even play a part in the cause of the depression. By supplementing with Magnesium Glycinate, 100mg to 300mg per day, you may find relief.
You could start out by taking 100mg of Magnesium Glycinate before going to bed. I use this supplement every night to help me fall asleep and it does the job. I am able to fall asleep within a half hour of laying down. If I do not take the supplement, it could take me hours to fall asleep.
This supplement has helped to improve the quality of my sleep. I have recommended this supplement to others who have had issues with sleep. These people have been pleased with the results.They were able to fall asleep faster. One person said to me after trying Magnesium Glycinate for sleep, "I slept like a baby."
Hopefully Magnesium Glycinate will be able to help you with your sleep and depression. If it does not help, there are other natural remedies available if you do not wish to take prescription medication.
