Rub your Feet with this Before you Go to Bed
Some people swear by taking a magnesium bath in the evening to fall asleep faster. Magnesium is said to penetrate your body through the high temperature of the water and help your body and brain relax. For a while now, however, there appears to be another trend in this area. In fact, rubbing your feet with magnesium oil is said to have the same effect.
What is Magnesium?
Magnesium is a mineral that your body needs for many processes, such as converting food into energy. In addition, it is important for the functioning of your skeletal muscles, heart and blood vessels, healthy bones, and inflammatory processes. Magnesium is also known to have a relaxing effect on your nervous system. As a result, it can therefore also help you sleep better. After all, those who are more relaxed also fall asleep faster.
How does it Work?
On Instagram, the hashtag #magnesiumoil is trending and several people swear that rubbing their feet with magnesium oil has made them fall asleep better. Although there is no scientific evidence for this, it could certainly be that magnesium oil helps you fall asleep faster.
In fact, in some cases, it is possible that magnesium can get through your skin barrier, for example, with elevated temperatures or changing hydration conditions (if there is a high concentration of salts in the environment or water) or with the help of penetration promoters.
In addition, of course, it could also be that the massage itself causes you to relax more.
