As much as 80% of the population is magnesium deficient? Are you sleep deprived, get leg cramps, headaches, crave chocolate, muscle spasms or twitching? Well, you might be deficient. There are different types of magnesium. Citrate is the least absorbed, so you would need a higher dose.
We use a lot of magnesium glycinate for sleep deprivation. There is another neat one that is magnesium threonate. This type of magnesium actually -crosses the blood-brain barrier and can get you out of that magnesium deficiency quicker. It can help someone fall asleep and also help to stay asleep to keep you from tossing and turning all night long.
So, the dose is about 2 grams roughly 30 minutes prior to sleeping or at bedtime. Give it a try, it may be well worth the pill. This is what we use in our office.
