CALM Magnesium powder is a good one.
Try magnesium! Colace didn't do a thing for me, but I started taking a magnesium supplement before bed every night, and I am now the most regular and easy pooping girl you'd ever know. This is the stuff I got (https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Magnesium-Organic-Raspberry/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1473267595&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=calm%2Bmagnesium) -- but I found it locally in the health section at my normal supermarket for like $15, I didn't pay $25!!
You stir it in water & drink it, it tastes like overly sweet lemonade, and works like a charm for me!
Water + magnesium citrate is helpful. You may get diarrhea from changing gut flora. But if it's constipation, up your water intake and get electrolytes, including magnesium. Natural Calm magnesium citrate powder is a good one, you may find it at Walmart. Or a liquid magnesium citrate that you could find at Target or Walgreens - though it's not as tasty as the powder.
Magnesium! This seems to be a common problem with IF. Start adding way more leafy greens, pumpkin seeds and avocados, and/or supplement with magnesium.
I like Natural Calm: https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Magnesium-Organic-Raspberry/dp/B00BPUY3W0?th=1
It works immediately, so I keep some around for when I get that restless feeling.
I use Lyte Balance. It's an electrolyte concentrate, you add a capful to a glass of liquid. 281mg Sodium, 350mg Potassium, 50 mg Magnesium. Taste is fine, I usually say it tastes like tears. The bottle describes how to use it.
For more Magnesium, Natural CALM has 325 mg. I like the Raspberry-Lemon flavor but you can buy sample boxes of 5 flavors. I can't find the assorted box on Amazon without buying a whole display, but I've found it at health food/co-ops before.
I'm about 6 months on keto (lost 30lbs, no migraines from 2-3/monthly, lots of energy/stamina). At first I documented my electrolytes everyday now I usually just add the electrolytes when I feel like I need it. Usually I'll get a mild headache or not feel as energetic.
Hi there! I don't have insurance either at the moment and have had periods over they years with no insurance. I would start looking into a low carb diet like keto, this can help with your blood sugar and loose weight. I just started taking DCI for about 4 weeks, and got my first period in 10 months. I take two a day in the morning, along with coconut oil pills, vitamin D3 and magnesium. I recently purchased Ovasitol to try the mixture of both myo and d-chiro inositol. I've seen a lot of girls on here who use this brand. I've now been researching berberine which is supposed to have equivalent effects as metformin. Hope this helps!
I like Natural Calm for mag.
You can also get mag from adding Epsom salt to a bath and soaking for a bit(great for sore muscles).
I use the app Flo in order to track my PMDD and take HTP-5 and ashwagandha root capsules during those two weeks. I feel like they help my cravings, anxiety, and depression. I have been prescribed Prozac for depression and anxiety since I was 13, and I make sure not to forget taking it (my dosage remains the same).
At night I have trouble falling asleep, so I take these magnesium supplements a few hours before bedtime. I also try to meditate for at least 5 minutes every night using the app Insight Timer. It helps me with impulse control and not overreacting to things. All of this took many years to figure out. I hope you find something that brings relief!
EDIT: I didn't know there were any possible reactions of HTP-5 and antidepressants, but apparently the main warning for supplements containing 5HTP is “do not consume if you’re taking antidepressant drugs.” It can lead to serotonin syndrome.
I'm going to stop taking HTP-5 for now and just take the ashwagandha root supplements, which don't seem to have negative interactions with antidepressants. Let me know if I'm wrong.
Try magnesium supplements instead of laxatives. THIS ONE is my favorite.
Also helps improve calmness.
I had this happeneing and did two things - not sure if only one helped or if I needed both. First I started taking a magnesium supplement ( http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Calm-Raspberry-Lemon/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=pd_bxgy_hpc_img_y ).
I also started massaging my feet with a tennis ball while watching TV, and then I'll massage other tight muscles in my calves with the ball. So I guess pretty much "foam rolling" with a tennis ball.
I used to have trouble sleeping but then I discovered this stuff. I do a teaspoon ~30 mins before I want to go to sleep, put on an audiobook with a 15 minute sleep timer, usually out like a light five minutes in.
So I know a lot about this. I've been dealing with acid reflux at night for 10+ years and I have a pretty good handle on it. So first of all, if you can sleep on your back, it's the best position for acid reflux and noticing palpitations. What works for me also is to create a wedge incline with several pillows so that my head is elevated above my stomach. I also drink Calm mixed with Benefiber and that helps to aid with digestion, especially heavy meals (I sometimes drink Kefir as well). What I've noticed over the years is that once my stomach empties, maybe 3-5 hours after eating, I can usually sleep however I want, but sometimes you just eat really late and it can't be helped (maybe eat a lighter meal is this instance). So basically, try not to lay down or at least sit upright until it's time for bed. The last advice is to try and avoid foods that you know bother your stomach, for instance, I know that I can eat Whole Wheat Bread, because I get horrible heartburn and reflux. Good luck.
if eliminations is the issue - I would start with getting your magnesium in check.
https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Supplement-Raspberry-Lemon/dp/B00BPUY3W0 or similar
So thanks for the explanation. Someone recently suggested I get this one. Was it a good suggestion? And in case I'm missing anything, is the powder good as far as absorption is concerned?
Magnesium Threonate theoretically crosses the blood-brain barrier easier. I personally find it to be less sedating or calming than the Magnesium Citrate I take at night. It is pricier, but the research so far shows promising results. Also, my doc recommended it!
According to this study from the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease: "In an intact rodent, treatment with conventional magnesium salts is ineffective at elevating brain magnesium and improving memory function. This is because active transport systems tightly control the amount of magnesium that crosses first from digestive tract into blood, and then from blood to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). In human, increasing blood magnesium by up to 300% only changes CSF magnesium by less than 19%. To overcome this problem, we developed L-Threonic acid Magnesium salt (L-TAMS, formerly MgT), a compound that can effectively enhance CSF magnesium concentration via oral intake."
Also from the same study: "Supplementation with magnesium threonate may improve cognitive function in older individuals with memory and concentration issues, say results of a randomized, controlled, double-blind study."
I know grapefruit juice is supposed to help with swelling, although I didn't try it myself during/after my pregnancy (I had swelling everywhere but especially my feet for the last couple months of being pregnant as well as a week or so post partum).
What really helped me was magnesium, specifically this stuff. It helps with sleep and constipation too, which is also nice! :)
Things that have helped me:
Hi there, I've only been a lurker up until now, but I work night shift so I know a thing or two about sleep aids! Melatonin works really well and then there is this Magnesium drink called "calm" that I have also found to be helpful. Fair warning... it is magnesium so it can make you just a little more than regular!
I got mine at Whole Foods and I had the raspberry lemonade flavor and it's not bad!
try to get some really good fats. make sure you're eating healthy saturated fats like cold pressed coconut oil and then also cold pressed hemp oil (and hemp seeds) and olive oil.
It's easy to miss getting good fats if you're just cooking with a refined oil or light vegetable oil. Fat is one thing that depletes a lot after switching to not eating animal sources, but the health and tissue of your brain rely heavily on good fat consumption through your diet.
Also check your magnesium intake. I'll always recommend hemp seeds because they have a lot of magnesium. But supplements work well too. I like this https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Magnesium-Organic-Raspberry/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1495277823&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=magnesium+drink
I was getting horrendous daily headaches at the start of my second trimester (26 weeks now) and am not Pre-e. My midwife and doula both suggested taking Magnesium. So I ordered some off of Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Magnesium-Organic-Raspberry/dp/B00BPUY3W0?th=1)
No idea if its placebo or not, but it seems to have done WONDERS. I rarely if ever wake up with a headache anymore (unless I forget to take some). Might be worth looking into?
It's never given me a straight up laxative effect, but I definitely notice a smoother move! I use this brand and I think they even make gummies now. Hopefully you get some relief soon!
I found that Time Released Melatonin 1mg is very powerful. Too powerful for me but maybe an option for you?
Also Natural Calm Magnesium Is a particularly sedating form of magnesium in my experience.
The least practical form of magnesiumon a regular basis is a hot epsom salt bath. For me it’s about as sedating as a double dose of benzos.
[edit: Apology: reread your question and realized you’re looking for alternatives to melatonin. Will leave up that first sentence though, since I haven’t seen much discussion about time release melatonin and I was really surprised at how different it felt than 0.5mg quick dissolve melatonin.]
Not an herb, but Natural Calm magnesium citrate works wonders for me.
I take Natural Calm.
It's powder. I mix about 1/2 tsp in 4-6 oz water.
If you haven't taken magnesium before, start small. It basically relieves muscle tension...everywhere. So, basically, if you take too much too soon, pooping gets real easy...too easy.
Edit: you can also get it at Whole Foods.
Not sure what kind of magnesium it is, but Natural Calm , it helps a LOT...
I take 1 tsp Natural Calm in a tall glass of water first thing in the morning and before bed. It’s comes in different flavors, but I prefer the unflavored. Then, I can flavor my Magnesium water with Mio or another water enhancer. I highly recommend it to my IIH and keto-dieting friends.
Good job!!! I know the feels: panic attacks really suck.
FWIW, my severe attacks, palpitations, and insomnia are now reduced by about 90% (nearly cured) since I started supplementing with Natural Calm, a very good magnesium supplement, in the evenings. Anyone out there with these symptoms, it's really worth a try!!
Nope! Just start out with small doses and listen to your body. This is what I use: https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Anti-Stress-Supplement-Raspberry/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_sspa?keywords=natural+calm+magnesium+powder&amp;qid=1571579919&amp;sprefix=natural+calm&amp;sr=8-1-spons&amp;psc=1&amp;spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUFPSVdYV1ZBVlA1UUcmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTA1NzQ3OTgyNkJTSFZONTJEOTU2JmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA5NzYyOTEyUzM1NFE0QUtYOFY1JndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfcGhvbmVfc2VhcmNoX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=
I used a powdered supplement called "CALM" from amazon a few times a day and it really helped for anxiety.
Also, some sleep supplements will definitely help you get SOME sleep. This one is pretty cheap, has 3 natural sleeping aids and taking 2-3 WILL help you sleep
Over time my sleep has really improved on Keto, was an insomniac before. Maybe taking a chelated form of Magnesium before bed will help, I know some people like Natural Calm (though I haven't tried it myself).
Yesssss!! It's the worst! Unisom helps when I really need to sleep. I try not to use it too much because it loses its effectiveness and really knocks me out. I think good sleep hygiene is super important too. Try to have a bedtime routine for yourself. No TV or phone at least an hour before bedtime. Keep lighting low and activity calm before bedtime. Try to go to sleep at the same time every night. Do something that relaxes you (bath, glass of wine, reading, ect.) before bed. If you're consistent it will really help your body regulate hormonally. Another thing that really helps is magnesium. When I was having trouble sleeping early in my pregnancy I used to drink this:
Natural Vitality Natural Calm Magnesium Anti Stress, Organic, Raspberry Lemon, 16 oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_HCLOzbB8DKS75
It really helped!
I appreciate your help. Here’s a link to the product
Natural Vitality Calm, The Anti-Stress Dietary Supplement Powder, Raspberry Lemon - 16ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_dF5VCbBX8JX1H
This one works for me! I've heard great things about this drink, but I prefer the pills to just get it over with haha.
Magnesium will help with the insomnia, leg cramping and constipation! Are you supplementing at all? I know that some people find that taking a supplement such as Natural Calm helps them sleep better.
For your brain fog, make sure that you're getting all your electrolytes, not just magnesium.
Have you tried magnesium? There are a few different form but it May be worth investigating. Many of us are deficient so it can be a good item to throw into the mix plus it helps relax you and your muscles.
Some of my athlete friends swear by stuff called “natural calm” which is a magnesium mix. Found on amazon here It didn’t work great for me but multiple friends love it.
I like Doc Parsley’s sleep remedy which also uses magnesium as an ingredient (among others). You can check it out here

This may seem like some hippy mumbo jumbo, but I've had success taking magnesium (http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Calm-Raspberry-Lemon-16/dp/B00BPUY3W0 - I use the natural flavor) for a while to calm my conscious brain before bed if it is spinning too much.
I'd suggest taking a magnesium supplement, it helps you relax so you can stay asleep. I take this every night: http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Magnesium-Organic-Raspberry/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=sr_1_2_a_it?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1464977638&amp;sr=8-2&amp;keywords=natural+calm+magnesium+16oz
I don't think there's one nearby, but is this the stuff you're talking about?
I apparently need this miracle powder lol.
And I forget which brand but I think Bulk Supplements Potassium
Natural Vitality Calm, The Anti-Stress Drink Mix, Magnesium Supplement Powder, Raspberry Lemon - 16 ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_n5IsDb7GBFKGE
Ugh, that sucks I’m so sorry. My mom takes antidepressants too, which is why I kick myself for not bringing it up to her sooner- I knew she would have understood. But not everyone will. :(
Look into supplements and vitamins as well. Or even CBD oil, which you can get online and in local health/specialty shops.
Try Calm Magnesium powder at night- it really is so helpful, and I was taking less than the recommended dose. You should be able to find at Walmart or Walgreens.
There's a powdered magnesium drink I sometimes use here in the USA called "Natural Calm".
yeah it's a little expensive but there are lots of doses in one bottle. When I'm having trouble falling asleep I have a tablespoon of that in warm water and it gives me just a gentle nudge towards sleep. Not as strong as a sleeping pill, but it's natural and very safe.
You probably know this, but you should avoid all screens in the last few hours before you go to bed. The blue light jacks up your brains sense of day/night.
I also found that going for some intense exercise before bed, like running, helped tire me out and sleep better.
I have to respectfully disagree with the notion that one cannot "feel" magnesium. I believe that magnesium can very much create a tangible feeling of calmness, or reduction of anxiety for those prone to it. Reading the various reports of those who take it for those reasons can confirm this. In fact, one of the most popular magnesium products advertises it's feeling of calm and relaxation. Now obviously this isn't going to be along the same lines as marijuana or something, but it does induce a very noticeable feeling.
As for the reason I took double the amount of the RDV is because magnesium oxide is known to be the least efficiently absorbed forms of magnesium. Edit: After researching, magnesium oxide only has %4 bioavailability.
I only take it daily because I'm on the keto diet and it's one of the electrolytes that can become low in your body super quick. For a trip I'd take something like the powder you probably only need to dose an hour or so before.
Here's the link for the one I've used in the past.
You know, everyone has an opinion about this (what is the best form of magnesium) and I've tried them all. Honestly I can't really tell any difference, but I am a fan of Natural Calm and it seems to work pretty fast but its probably just placebo. Every night I take a cheapy magnesium and it really seems to work find.
One small caveat, if you take too much you'll probably have loose stools in the morning.
yes not being able to fall asleep can be a trigger to fap for sure. I just purchased magnezeium drops. something that trainers of superman were using. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BPUY3W0/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1 hopefully it works.
Its an electrolyte supplement. I use Calm Tea from Natural Vitality, but you could just buy a magnesium citrate supplement from any store. 300-400 mg of magnesium does the trick. You do want to be careful not to take too much.
Okay, so I ended up buying a magnesium citrate/calcium powdered supplement (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BPUY3W0/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1&amp;smid=A1P546TAL7E4CV), well a sample version. The recommended dose is 2 heaping teaspoons. I followed suggestions I had seen that said to only take a 1/2 teaspoon at first; I took 1/4 teaspoon yesterday morning with the plan to take another 1/4 at night. I had a pretty loose stool a few hours later but didn't know if it was the supplement or something I ate prior. I forgot to take the other half. So this morning, I took an entire 1/2 so I wouldn't forget, and a few hours later, had really bad diarrhea. There's only like 225mg in 2 full teaspoons, so I'm not sure if I just have to really slowly ease into using it or what. Any thoughts?
Also, will I feel the positive effects of the magnesium immediately or does it take time?
I'm tempted to just buy the magnesium glycinate pills I was originally going to get...
This is my fave
Sorry, it's Natural Calm? I got it off Amazon after reading the recommendations here. It's a drink mix with magnesium and some other electrolytes.
I'd avoid sleeping pills unless it's a last resort. What helps me is:
Exercise (I hate it, but it does help me fall asleep)
Magnesium supplement, specifically this:
(Sorry on phone, don't know how to embed a link). This stuff tastes like a tart lemonade and it's like magic. I sleep through the night.
Staying away from caffeine after 2pm (I'm really sensitive to it)
Also, I don't have too much experience with meditation, but I think that would help a lot to calm your mind.
Finally, my therapist suggested the following exercise- while you're in bed, think about 3 things you see, feel, and hear. Then think about 2 things you see, feel, and hear. Then 1 thing you see, feel, and hear. Keep cycling this until you drift off.
Worth a shot! Good luck!
If you’re not taking it already, try
Natural Vitality Natural Calm Diet Supplement, Raspberry Lemon, 16 Ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_Y1X-AbRET8SY7
I have bad constipation too, and if I take 2.5 - 3 teaspoons in 8oz of water 2x a day it helps. Added bonus is it tastes great and you’re getting magnesium.
I also find eating cooked spinach regularly helps loosen stool.
This is what I'm using to to manage the 'C' part of my IBS and I like it. Makes me go no more than twice a day and has a relaxing affect on my mental state. Linzess is harsh - at least it was on me. I did not enjoy being in the bathroom 24/7. Consider this if you want something gentler. The taste is pretty palatable too.
Dealing with sleep deprivation on top of such intense anxiety has got to be really hard! Something that really helps me is this product called Calm that I drink every night and Tension Tamer Tea. Having a set routine every day and rituals and minimal media/news/video games really helps me. Being outside doing yard work and gardening and walking helps so much. Eat really healthy, your body and brain need all those micronutrients to function at their best!
If I'm in the middle of a panic attack I practice breathing and I hold my little dog and count or put in head phones with really calming music.
You can learn self soothing techniques that can train your brain to get out of the anxiety zone!
Here is a link from the side bar that has some work books you can do to help train your brain. Also anti-depressants CAN help anxiety, but some can make it worse, make sure you are talking to your doctor and letting him know how intense your panic is so that he can help you best. Treating anxiety like it's depression is not always the best option...
Take care, we are here to help you!
I reall like Natural Vitality Natural Calm
Is this it ? https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Supplement-Raspberry-Lemon/dp/B00BPUY3W0?th=1
Ordering online is more convenient as my stoned ass will not be wanting to drive somewhere tomorrow.
So much for getting baked on edibles lmao. I still have two more brownies that I'm debating on whether I should just gobble them both up or wait until I find an answer to this.
I had the same exact issue and magnesium fixed me in 2 days. I LOVE Calm Magnesium
It isn't cheap, but it's worth every penny. If I don't take my daily dose for a couple of days, my leg pain comes right back. Further, I'm able to relax and sleep SO much better when I have a small glass before bed.
Thirding (fourthing?) magnesium! I drink Natural Calm every couple of nights.
I definitely do when travelling. You might try Natural Calm. It's a magnesium supplement that REALLY helps. You would take it at bedtime in conjunction with LOTS of water.
Something else that may help is probiotics, whether from fermented foods (think sauerkraut or kombucha) or supplements.
I add some Calm magnesium along with the Lite Salt and flavoring. This link shows the raspberry lemon flavor (it's NOT sweetened) but it comes plain too.
That gives you sodium + potassium + magnesium + calcium in certain versions of the Calm.
I take a small spoonful of Natural Calm mixed in water before about a half an hour before I go to bed. It really does calm your body down and let you go to sleep. http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Calm-Raspberry-Lemon/dp/B00BPUY3W0 I have got a lot of people to take it and they all say it has helped them get a better night sleep.
If you looking to purchase some, that product above is probably the best deal, you get a lot for your money (only need 1/4-1/2 a teaspoon to get more than enough magnesium for the day). Only downside is that is has a very chalky texture.
If the chalky texture is an issue, This product not only has no chalky texture, but it tastes great and is fizzy, so it's basically like soda. The downside though, is that you need a higher dosage. 2 teaspoons yields only 325mg magnesium, whereas the other product, even just 1/4 a teaspoon gives you 867mg of magnesium. Plus, it is a lot more expensive. But some people find the drawbacks worth it to not have the gritty chalky texture.
There is tablets yes, but I've heard several times that the powdered citrate form is the most absorbable.
I have been taking Wellbutrin for a month now and have had constant anxiety and sleeping problems since day one and haven't found anything that would calm me (except maybe some kava), and then today I got samples of this stuff called Natural Calm, it's Magnesium Citrate (From mixing Magnesium Carbonate and Citric Acid in your beverage) and in less than 20 min I was extremely relaxed. Sort of muscle relaxer relaxed. For me one packet was too much because I was tired all day but I can't believe how effective it was. Here's a link:
I wonder if it's the carbonate version that makes it so effective for me since I've tried magnesium citrate before and it wasn't like this stuff at all. It says the carbonate version is for better absorption.
Magnesium! Natural Calm - raspberry lemonade flavor is my favorite. It's like Emergen-C, I got it on Amazon but it may be at your grocer or a health store. It's kept me regular throughout my pregnancy (38+5 now), and it also helps me get to sleep. It's a thing that will continue well after birth.
Maybe listen some sort of music. Try to go to bed at 7-9 pm and take melatonin or something called calm powder. https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Anti-Stress-Supplement-Raspberry/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=sr_1_4?gclid=CjwKCAiAh5_uBRA5EiwASW3IakWP5Cnl830FPlmQF4o96LHbJC7M8lAEYJNYMIBe7DibSNFtnaS77xoC9U8QAvD_BwE&hvadid=232544940925&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9013277&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t2&hvqmt=e&hvrand=10757157066410699419&hvtargid=kwd-385342849831&hydadcr=21193_9334195&keywords=calm+sleep+powder&qid=1573414552&sr=8-4 That really helpedx me.
Someone on reddit told me this stuff was good for shaking from ayahuasca
Magnesium is good for muscles and helps with tremors in general. I've been preloading with it for the last few days with my first ceremony being this Friday
Edit: here is the original post that told me about this
You can get it online (https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Anti-Stress-Supplement-Raspberry/dp/B00BPUY3W0) I hope this works
Magnesium powder from either natural calm or now foods. https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Anti-Stress-Supplement-Raspberry/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=natural+calm&amp;qid=1571083253&amp;sr=8-3
My daily electrolyte supplements usually look like this:
The rest of my electrolytes come from food. If I still feel unwell after the above, I may drink another ElectroMix. This seems to be working well for managing my induction.
Remember: Spinach is a good source of potassium and other healthy nutrients. It never hurts to mix it into whatever you're making or have a side salad with some olive oil.
Best of luck to you and KCKO! :)
realize your anger does nothing to help you
go get some Natural Calm magnesium supplement and drink it up
I get tired of popping pills so I tried the Natural Calm Magnesium drink powder. The raspberry lemonade flavor is pretty good, not delicious, but good. You just mix it in water and drink. It has 325 mg per serving, which it claims is 85% DV on the facts chart.
You can get it on Amazon and natural food stores. Anyway, that's my 2 cents about reaching the magnesium levels sufficiently.
I drank this in a glass of water before bed with my first pregnancy and it helped: https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Magnesium-Organic-Raspberry/dp/B00BPUY3W0
I always preach Calm Magnesium Powder (take about a teaspoon, teaspoon and a half) and Magnesium Glycinate (I take 2 of these with the other). Helps you stay really regular and if you take them right before bed, they help you sleep as well.

If you're struggling to get 8 hours a night, you can focus on deepening the sleep you do get instead of sleeping longer.
Source: neuroscientist who focused on psychopharmacology and sleep when I was getting my degree.
I take a magnesium citrate supplement in the evenings that makes me very tired. I usually take it an hour or so before I plan to go to sleep. I told my OB about it and she had no concerns but obv consult yours first if it’s not something you have run by them in the past.
This is the one I use:

Yes. It's horrible.
Things that I've tried that have helped:
- Not eating anything at least 3 hours before bed
- Sleepy tea
- Some of this before bed
I like Natural Calm Tea:

Raspberry Lemon flavor is my fave and I drink it before bed.

I take this one before bed: Natural Vitality Natural Calm Diet Supplement, Raspberry Lemon, 16 Ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BPUY3W0
Taking magnesium citrate before bed is the #1 thing that has finally cured my insomnia. Read the reviews [here] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_sXqfub1NS6HJW) and slowly work yourself up to 2 teaspoons after a few days. Drink it 30 minutes before bed. I prefer it with warm water.
I focus on Potassium, Magnesium and Sodium.
EmergenC Electro Mix (sugar free) has Magnesium and Potassium
Natural Calm (Magnesium) (Stevia) (whoa, is Stevia Keto? I can't remember.) (I bought natural calm before keto to help me with Restless Leg Syndrome.)
I figure I get sodium in all the salt I put on my food (Himalayan Pink.)
Potassium-from my research (I can send one more link, I don't have time right now) it seems like we basically can't get enough potassium.. so go nuts. We would need like 40 cups of spinach a day or something.. crazy.
Bulletproof "get some ice cream" (Ice Cream Maker)

this changed my world, no more constipation
A magnesium supplement might help with both the restless/tired legs and the sleep issue. I use this stuff when I have muscle weakness http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Calm-Raspberry-Lemon/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1397140731&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=calm
It works for me.
Try Natural Calm! This stuff saved me in the 3rd trimester after having the worst charlie horse of my life.
My wife told me recently that she read somewhere that one of the reasons women crave chocolate at that time is due to magnesium deficiency, and chocolate has a decent amount of magnesium.
You could get a magnesium supplement and take that. It's pretty good for you regardless. http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Calm-Raspberry-Lemon/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1394719352&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=natural+calm+magnesium+powder
I drink 2 tsp of that in warm water every night before bed. It's naturally very relaxing - I sleep a lot better after using it as well.
This is the stuff I take, if you were wanting to know. It's not hard to find locally either. Whole foods, fresh thyme and even Sam's club has it.
Hope it helps, good luck mama!💖💖💖
Agree with another poster here that it sounds like a sleep problem rather than a diet problem. Your sleep has improved but it still isn't good. Diet alone cant fix that. One thing that helps me is magnesium citrate right before bed. I use calm:
Natural Vitality Calm, The Anti-Stress Drink Mix, Magnesium Supplement Powder, Raspberry Lemon - 16 ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BPUY3W0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_VHTrDbQVB2924
Natural Calm makes magnesium citrate that's flavored with stevia that tastes pretty good: https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vitality-Magnesium-Organic-Raspberry/dp/B00BPUY3W0
Magnesium has been a game changer for me.
A tsp of magnesium powder in an 8 oz glass of warm water, and not only do I sleep better, but my dreams are intensely vivid.
Like switching from a 14" b&w TV to a 65" 4k ultra HD TV.
You might look into the Magnesium supplements - I use this one before bed and I never have to think for more than a minute about whats happening when I wake up every morning. (and it helps with preventing muscle cramps as well...)
This is my favorite. I find it helps me drift off to sleep before bed. http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Calm-Raspberry-Lemon-16/dp/B00BPUY3W0
Natural Calm to help with the hip cramps! Within 2 days, my leg cramps were gone.
Just hang in there...I'm at 38 weeks and so miserable in this Texas heat but the good news is that the baby WILL come at some point!
I used the keto calculator that's listed in the sidebar and put myself at a 15% deficit at sedentary.
Here's my current macros:
1141 calories (I started w more at a higher weight and scaled back as my weight dropped)
20g carbs or less
87g fat or less
I supplement electrolytes with Lite Salt and CALM Magnesium
This has been saving me every night! I was having terrible leg cramps and not sleeping well due to anxiety. This helped with both my anxiety and leg cramps. I try to take it about 10 hours before I need to wake up (I wake up at 5:15, so I take it around 7:30).
Peeps...you don't have to suffer through anxiety. There is a reason why you are anxious so you need to figure it out. It may be a repressed memory, someone you are around, your lifestyle, etc but you have to be truthful and find out.
Or it may be an imbalance in your body. You may be deficient in a mineral. Magnesium helps a lot with anxiety and if you are under high stress the body becomes depleted in magnesium a lot quicker. I used stay calm magnesium supplement to get rid of my anxiety. Its an up hill battle but you can get your anxiety under control. Be safe out there.
Here is the link to it on amazon. Its also sold at wholefoods, cvs etc... take care of yourself...you are the biggest asset that you have.
