A little sleep does the body wonders!!

When I was on medication I never ever struggled to sleep. It would seem like I had just laid down my head and the alarm clock would be going off. Such a sound sleep. After weaning off meds, being med free and getting healthier I still felt I was getting plenty of rest until kiddies came along and then rest well that is that?

So once my sleep (the little I got) began to dwindle I started looking for natural ways to enable my body to get sleep. I worked out, was taking vitamins yet changing my eating habits but still did not seem to get the rest I needed. Eliminated caffeine and any other stimulants before bed then completely. Yet I would still wake up.

What I had not considered was what minerals were missing in my diet. So as I continued to search I came upon calcium and magnesium powder. Now separately calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body. It required for vascular contraction, muscle function, nerve transmission, intracellular signaling and hormonal secretion, though less than 1% of total body calcium is needed to support these critical metabolic functions Magnesium on the other hand is important for many processes in the body, including regulating muscle and nerve function, blood sugar levels, and blood pressure and making protein, bone, and DNA. It is also considered the relaxation mineral. Now balance both of these minerals and they can provide a wonderful nights sleep.

When I came upon a product that had the benefits of both I thought I would give it a try. Its called “Natural Calm Plus Calcium” Magnesium-Calcium Powder. And after my first night I was pleasantly surprised it actually worked. It was such a relief and there was no side effects. And it is gluten-free so no additives!! So if you are looking for a natural way to sleep like a baby it is a great place to start. You can find it at Goodness Me, SuperStore and most health food stores. So until I write again….

keep calm and sleep on
