I don’t believe in supplements but somebody I know who is in healthcare strongly recommended a magnesium (glycinate) supplement. I tried, and wow. Great sleep, great mood. It makes me feel really cozy and calm. I’m starting to think there’s something wrong with it because it’s kind of too good.

  1. If you’re taking prescription medications, you should check with your doctor about possible drug interactions before starting any non-prescription supplements.

    Remember that not all people involved “in healthcare” are knowledgeable about potential problems with over-the-counter supplements.


  2. Nearly everyone in the US is magnesium deficient. Adding a magnesium supplement is almost guaranteed to make you feel better, because your body needs it. Nothing wrong with it…just something your body is telling you it needs.

  3. The supplements probably don’t make much of a difference when you are young but as we age, our bodies makes/store less of everything and that way we can boost the natural processes.

    I sometimes get tendonitis in my ankles and taking collagen reduces the healing time by half. Taking biotin makes a huge difference with the appearance of my nails and hair. I take magnesium for better sleep and sometimes vitamin B which gives me the most amazing dreams.


  4. I don’t take a magnesium supplement but epsom salts have been a huge part of my recovery from injury during exercise. Either by a compress (salts dissolved in water and sponged into a washrag with ice for acute injury) or via a hot bath to relax tight muscles. There are ways to eat magnesium too – spinach, cashews, and other foods. I used to take a lot of supplements but they waned over tiime – i.e. stopped working. Now I just try to eat healthy. Of course, that’s a continuous struggle.

    I hope the magnesium doesn’t make you so cozy and comfortable that you stop writing the blog because you are so contented that you forget to be bothered by the shenanigans.
