Following Covid, my tinnitus has worsened. I understand magnesium can soften high pitch noise. Is there anything from the Naked Pharmacy that might help?
Many thanks for getting in touch. Yes, magnesium is a natural nerve and muscle relaxant that settles the nervous system - something that will help this worsening of your tinnitus. Our Marine Magnesium is from marine algae, so 100% natural, with some organic prebiotic added for gut health. The dose is 1 capsule daily, we tend to advise this to be taken in the evening for maximum relaxation - take one capsule in the evening
I have restless legs that keep me awake at night. I’m getting fed up! Is there anything that can help?
We recommend taking Marine Magnesium each evening to help settle the nervous system in readiness for a good night sleep. This is a 100% natural magnesium from algae and the dose is 1 capsule each evening. Magnesium is a nerve and muscle relaxant which can bring relief from both cramping and restless limbs that may be preventing good quality sleep and also just to dial the nervous system down to allow you to maintain a goods nights sleep.
I’ve been taking a magnesium tablet on and off for about a year. I note however you recommend your brand to be taken in the morning. Why is that?
Magnesium supplements can be taken at any time of the day, however we tend to recommend to take it in the evening to promote muscle and nerve relaxation and help sleep. Marine Magnesium is an easily absorbable form of magnesium that we take from marine algae off the Scottish coast. Magnesium is an essential mineral which means we don’t produce it in our bodies and so instead we get it from foods or sensible supplementation. It is a nerve and muscle relaxant and is best taken as 1 capsule in the evening around 7pm each day - especially if you are taking for restless legs. It is fine to take alongside any prescribed medication or other supplements you may be taking.
Hi, I’ve been told that I’m low in magnesium, despite having a healthy diet and having epsom salt baths. What would you recommend?
Our Marine Magnesium is a very absorbable form of magnesium that we make from marine algae. Magnesium is an essential mineral which means we don’t produce it in our bodies and so instead we get it from foods or sensible supplementation. It is a nerve and muscle relaxant and is best taken as 1 capsule in the evening around 7pm each day. It is fine to take alongside any prescribed medication or other supplements you may be taking. Each capsule contains 100% of your daily requirement of magnesium so don’t have any more in supplement form. Food sourced magnesium such as nuts/seeds as well as the capsule daily would be fine.
