What insomniacs should know about magnesium and calcium

I've written about the importance of magnesium rich foods before, but I've not really spoken much about calcium, and how both magnesium and calcium can help insomnia sufferers.

According to the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, calcium deficiency is associated with type 1 insomnia (difficulty falling asleep) and magnesium deficiency is associated with type 2 insomnia (you can fall asleep, but you can't stay asleep).

Therefore, if you have trouble falling asleep you should consider increasing your intake of calcium.

If you struggle to stay asleep, consider increasing your intake of magnesium.

Foods that are rich in calcium (for those who struggle to fall asleep) include:

* Dairy products
* Collard greens
* Spinach
* Sardines

Foods that are rich in magnesium (for those who struggle to stay asleep) include:

* Nuts
* Green, leafy vegetables
* Beans

I'm not saying that changing your diet will cure your insomnia, but it may help - so surely that makes it worth a try?
