By the way magesium is a sleep aid taken before bedtime. It relaxes your body and muscles.
I've heard the same thing about magnesium glycinate - also, that it's good for fighting depression. I always sleep better when I take my cal/mag supplements regularly. Thanks for the reminder!!!
You should keep the Epsom salts around, though. They're great for drawing infection out of your skin, or bee venom, or whatever. I found a cream called Epsal that has the salts in an ointment base - it can be a livesaver.
