Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) can be very disruptive to your life, especially when you are trying to get to sleep. It is a condition from which many people suffer, with an endless feeling of numbness as well as prickling, tingling, and twitching that tends to be most troublesome at night. Unfortunately most people have, until now, had to get up and walk around to stop the sensation. But fortunately, many are discovering that Magnesium can assist in relieving the symptoms of RLS.
RLS affects one in 10 people who are aged over 65. It was identified by Karl-Axel Ekbom in the 40s, and is a syndrome that is more common in women than men. It is not only prevalent in women over 65, but also in pregnant women who can develop the syndrome during the final weeks of their last trimester.
The syndrome seems to be tied to dopamine which results in an imbalance that sends messages to your brain that you need to move. It is a very uncomfortable feeling but can also be painful in extreme cases. Those who suffer from a severe case of RLS will describe the sensation as “intolerable”.
Restless Leg Syndrome symptoms have been known to present in people with other health disorders such as autoimmune diseases, pancreatitis and diabetes.
The syndrome has been linked to severe magnesium deficiency which affects your nerves, blood vessels and muscles. Magnesium Gel or Oil can help alleviate
Magnesium is an essential mineral needed to assist in the musculoskeletal system function. It helps your muscles relax which leads to a deeper sleep.
Magnesium is also safe for pregnant women.
Inflammation and Magnesium
Because RLS is an inflammation of the nerves, magnesium works as the best medicine as it helps relax the nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Magnesium Gel Forte is a beautiful body lotion that can be applied directly to the legs prior to sleep, and a soothing bath using MiSMo's Magnesium Chloride powder can also assist in calming the restlessness.
