Raise your magnesium intake to enhance your lifestyle with these supplements


MAGNESIUM is needed by all internal organs. The mineral helps regulate our blood pressure, it can ease sleep problems or anxiety and it aids the immune system, as well as muscle and nerve function.

I look at ways to get it, while our Beauty Editor tries vitamins to boost skin and nails.

Bioglan active magnesium cream delivers a daily dose of the mineral through the skin to areas requiring additional care.

I loved this.

I sometimes get restless legs but after putting this on before bed, the annoyance disappeared.

Brilliant. One of those products I will keep using.

FLAKES HI IMMUNE

Magnesium bath flakes are a brilliant way to increase your intake while relaxing

Magnesium bath flakes absorb into your body better than Epsom salts.

Put these flakes, from the Dead Sea, into your bathwater, then relax for 20 or 30 minutes and let the minerals absorb into your body.

Helps relaxation, soothing tired or aching muscles.

I love these – and also the modern packaging, which you don’t always get with bath salts.

I would recommend these for people who want to incorporate fish oil into their diet but can’t stand the taste.

The texture is just like gummy sweets.
