Insomnia be gone! Magnesium lotion for sleep could be the perfect addition to your bedtime regime if you struggle to get a restful night’s slumber.

If you've ever struggled with a period of insomnia or sleep anxiety, we can all agree that it's no joke. When you've tried everything from laying your head down on the best pillow and best travel pillows (if you're away from home) to getting lost in the best autobiographies and found that nothing calms your mind to help you doze off, you find yourself saying "there must be another way". And there is.

Experts say the best course of action is to build a bedtime routine and prioritize good sleep hygiene. And, among these viable solutions, there's one that's getting rave reviews from those who struggle with sleep. Enter: the Magnesium Sleep Mineral Lotion.

Crafted by the BetterYou, Magnesium Sleep Mineral Lotion is a tried-and-true remedy against stress, muscle aches (like the ones you experience after all the best workouts), and nights spent tossing and turning or staring wide-eyed at the ceiling. 

All this for under £9. We'd say testing it's a product that's low stakes with the potential for high reward.

The lotion has been receiving plenty of 5-star reviews online, particularly from those wanting to learn how to sleep better.

One person said, ‘I have had problems falling asleep on and off for years. Tried quite a few remedies, essential oils, having a bath before bed, not drinking caffeine/ alcohol in the evening—nothing worked long-term. I had heard about magnesium being good to help with sleep problems but I didn’t want to take it in tablet form. I saw this product and am so glad I gave it a go." The reviewer then adds, "it worked the first night I used it, and every night since for almost a month. Within 30 minutes of applying it to my shoulders and neck, I can feel myself dropping off, and I sleep really well now."

Another very happy customer said, ‘Well I was cynical but on night two it actually worked. The stresses of life were stopping me from a restful sleep, but I can honestly say I’m impressed." This reviewer concludes with, "Finally have slept solidly for the first time in ages."

The magnesium cream for sleep can also help with restless nights during pregnancy, as one customer found, saying, ‘I've had restless legs throughout my pregnancy and nothing has helped. I tried warm baths, exercise, bananas, hydration, refresher gel. I thought I would give this a go and it is fantastic. I use it on my legs, shoulders, back, and arms and it really helps me doze off." The reviewer then advises, "Be careful how early you apply before bed though as any more than 30 minutes and the restlessness starts to come back."

Leave counting sheep for another night: it sounds like this could give you just the dreamy night’s sleep you are looking for.
