Is Vital Magnesium Complex effective for insomnia?

- Jennifer / 1 August 2016


Dear Jennifer,

Vital Magnesium is not promoted as a cure for insomnia. It is known that the minerals calcium and magnesium are required for restful sleep. For that reason, a product you can consider is Vital Calcium Complex, as it contains calcium and magnesium.

Vital Chamomile Tea is another one to consider, as chamomile has soothing and mild sleep promoting effects.
3 Vital Chamomile teabags
300 ml boiling water
300 ml full cream milk
Honey to taste
2cinnamon sticks
Steep 3 Vital Chamomile teabags into 250 ml boiling water for an extra strong brew. Heat 300 ml full cream milk until boiling point. Pour equal parts tea and milk into 2 glass latte cups. Stir in honey to taste with cinnamon sticks, or sprinkle with freshly grated cinnamon and enjoy warm.
If you are watching your weight, replace full cream with fat free milk]
