Sleep Deep – Our Top Supplements For Sleep

Sleep Deep – Our Top Supplements For Sleep

So many of us are focused on being healthy throughout the day-time. But a healthy night is just as important, if not more so. A good sleep is essential to healing the body and releasing the stresses of the mind. If you struggle to get a good, long and deep sleep, here are our top picks for sleep-supporting supplements.

Relax The Muscles

Many people have very tense muscles, due to stress and the strains of daily life. The best nutrient for relieving this is magnesium. Magnesium is essential for releasing muscle tension, and also supports a healthy nervous system.

However, many of us do not consume enough magnesium to support the body. The average diet is quite low in magnesium, but the average lifestyle depletes magnesium quickly. That's why practitioners will often suggest a magnesium supplement for anyone that is under a lot of stress.

Magnesium can be taken at any time of day. For formulas with B vitamins, try taking them in the morning. Pure magnesium formulas are best taken shortly before sleep.

During the day-time – Nutralife Complete Calm – available online

Before bed – Nutralife Magnesium Complete – available online

Calm The Mind

Stress is one of the top reasons why people sleep poorly. So in order to improve your rest, you need to know how to release some of that stress. Our goal here is to calm the mind, so that the mind will calm the body.

An easy way to do this is to enjoy a nice warm bath a few times a week. The warmth will adjust your body to an ideal pre-sleep temperature. A bath is also another great way to get magnesium in – just add some magnesium flakes to relax the muscles.

You can also consider using a nightly remedy to release stress and calm the nervous system. Formulas that include calming herbs such as passionflower may help to induce a natural, restful sleep.
