PrizMAG Magnesium , £22.95 for 90 capsules
Magnesium is important for heaps of reasons, including tiredness and fatigue, muscle cramps and sleep. PrizMAG pure magnesium bisglycinate is free from fillers, stearates and magnesium oxide, so you can be sure you are getting a high quality magnesium supplement. PrizMAG Magnesium binds to an amino acid called glycine, which is small enough to pass through your cell walls so that your body can absorb and utilise the magnesium, rather than have it pass through your gastrointestinal tract like many other forms of magnesium. It’s great for those who prefer capsules over powder, and it doesn’t cause bowel intolerance like some magnesium supplements. Studies show that both magnesium and glycine can each be beneficial for sleep. Combined into one easy supplement, PrizMAG packs a powerful punch to help you get a good night’s sleep. Take two to four capsules daily.
