Sylvie Thome Posted May 4, 2012 Share Posted May 4, 2012 I have been taking Magnesium as a sleep aid since I did my Whole 30 in February. I started with Mag Citrate tablets right before bed, which produced a lovely, deep sleep that I hadn't felt in decades, but also produced first thing in the morning runs to the bathroom. Recently I've been using unsweetened Natural Calm (also Mag Citrate), which has fixed the digestive issue, but doesn't seem to produce the same quality of sleep. Does anyone have recommendations of what other types of Mag (malate?) can give me that deep kind of sleep without also giving me the runs? All in all I'm sleeping much better than I have in decades due to switching my diet from typical American 'healthy' diet (who knew gluten was the cause of some of my sleep issues!?) to Paleo/primal, but I still am a light sleeper except for when taking the Mag Citrate tablets, so I'd love to find something that will help me regain that lovely deep sleep. thanks for any suggestions!
