You have no sleep, a crying babe, new routine, or no routine, let’s face it, it’s a new kind of stress your body is adjusting to and the first mineral to go is magnesium.

Magnesium is responsible for over 300 enzymatic processes in your body! Isn’t that insane!

With a deep affinity to the nervous system its best effects are on sleep, resilience to stress, reduction in anxiety and energy…
