Magnesium for Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) and Sleep


Table of Contents

RLS is a disorder of the part of the nervous system that affects movements of the legs. For most, it occurs most at nighttime, so RLS is considered a sleep disorder.

RLS sufferers have strange sensations in their legs and an irresistible urge to move their legs to relieve the sensations. RLS sufferers describe “jumpy” “twitchy” or “creepy crawly” feeling deep in the legs.

The severity of these symptoms can range from mild to intolerable. At its extreme, RLS makes it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep. For about 60% of people with RLS, both the frequency and the intensity can worsen over time.

The Magnesium Solution

Many physicians suggest lifestyle changes or prescription drugs. Some of the suggested Rx ‘solutions’ for RLS include benzodiazepines, opiods – heavy duty narcotics designed for pain relief, anti-epileptics, and dopamine agonists.

Testimonies from Natural Calm users suggest without a doubt that RLS can be ameliorated by addressing magnesium deficiency. Hundreds of fans have written to say that their RLS symptoms were completely eliminated when they discovered Natural Calm.

And scientific studies on the efficiency of sleep (decreased episodes of awakening and increased sleep time) showed significant improvement when magnesium supplementation was introduced, especially for people reporting episodes of RLS.

RLS is one of the leading conditions for which magnesium has proven to be a literal overnight cure for even the most severe cases.

Some of our most enthusiastic testimonials come from Natural Calm fans who use our magnesium citrate drink and apply our transdermal magnesium chloride to their legs before bed. Magnesium applied topically – to the skin – absorbs quickly, and it completely bypasses the gut. For those with sensitive digestive systems and RLS, Natural Calm transdermal magnesium is the perfect solution.
