The downside, though, has to be the lack of sleep. If you’re finding those summer days are leading to hot and sleepless nights (and not in the good way) there’s one trick you might want to try.
BetterYou, a manufacturer of health and medical products, recommend magnesium footbaths to help you drift off into dreamland.
Experts at the company suggest using transdermal magnesium to help relax muscles and reduce feelings of restlessness before sleep, citing a study published in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, which found that when the body’s magnesium levels are too low, it makes it harder to stay asleep.
Andrew Thomas, of BetterYou, said: “Magnesium is a natural relaxant and our bodies need this vital mineral in order to maintain a state of rest.
“When the body heats up we sweat and important minerals such as magnesium are lost depleting stores further.
“As our feet are amongst the most absorbent areas of the body and perfect for magnesium replenishment, the footbath is a great way to top up your magnesium levels and also helps to send you off into a wonderful slumber.”
