Here is an informative chart containing five signs of magnesium deficiency. These include poor sleep and insomnia, ringing ears, muscle cramps, abnormal heart function and kidney stones.
Chronic insomnia is one of the main symptoms of magnesium deficiency. Sleep in magnesium deficiency is usually agitated with frequent nighttime awakenings. On the other hand a high magnesium diet has been found to be associated with deeper, less interrupted sleep. This was proven in a study done at the Human Nutrition Research Center in North Dakota.
When taking magnesium supplements it is important to balance it with calcium. The recommended ratio is twice as much calcium as magnesium.
