Fight your insomnia with these magnesium rich foods

I've already written about the link between magnesium deficiency and insomnia - particularly for those also suffering from restless leg syndrome.

It's quite concerning therefore, to read about a Gallup poll that found magnesium consumption decreases as we age - apparently, 79% of adults over the age of 55 are eating less than the recommended dietary allowance of magnesium.

Magnesium and calcium are thought to strongly influence the quality of our sleep - so make sure you're eating a healthy, balanced diet.
