“Some of the factors that destroy a good night’s sleep include daytime behavior, working or sleeping in the wrong position for a long time, having a big meal and going to bed immediately after,” said Chawakit Kaoien, a 34-year-old licensed physical therapist.”

Other factors that can influence sleep and insomnia are a lack of the minerals calcium and magnesium.  Here’s some research on this from the Nutrition Breakthroughs blog: “In a study from the University of Medical Sciences in Iran, research was done with 46 adults who were experiencing insomnia.  Taking two magnesium oxide tablets twice a day resulted in significant increases in sleep time and reduced cortisol levels in the body, which is a stress hormone that can keep people awake.”

“In another research study from the Human Nutrition Research Center of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, scientists found that a high magnesium diet is associated with deeper, less interrupted sleep.”

This natural health news is shared by Nutrition Breakthroughs, a publisher of nutrition articles and a supplier of natural remedies since 2002.  Nutrition Breakthroughs makes Sleep Minerals II, the effective natural sleep aid with calcium, magnesium, zinc and vitamin D.
