Finding good deals on good quality magnesium supplements may feel like a challenging task. But with the Amazon Prime Day event in full swing, now may be the best time to stock up on your dietary supplements, without overstretching your budget.
It may not always be possible to get most of our essential nutrients from whole foods. Although it is universally hailed as the best approach, we may simply not have the time, or resources, to eat right at all times. The right dietary supplements can help us bridge these gaps in our diet and prevent nutrient deficiencies. Magnesium in particular is crucial to our health, but many struggle with obtaining enough of it. What's more, our levels of this essential mineral drop when we are stressed or anxious.
Magnesium plays many important roles in our body, especially when it comes to the functioning of our nervous system. This nutrient is known to help promote restful sleep, increase energy and relieve symptoms of restless leg syndrome. You can currently save on BioEmblem's Triple Magnesium Complex, now just $22.79 at Amazon, while Nature Made Magnesium Oxide 250mg are 24% off at Amazon.
We've pulled together the best deals from Amazon's Prime Early Access Sale to see you through the next few months.
It is worth noting that the tolerable upper limit for magnesium is 350mg from supplements only (this excludes food). It is always worth speaking to your doctor before you take any new supplement, to make sure the amounts are safe for you.
