Lacking energy, feeling flat or not sleeping well? Magnesium could be key to helping you feel re-energised
Ad Feature by FutureYou
Across the country people are increasingly battling with lethargy.
This can have mental and physical knock-on effects on your mood, your muscles and how you feel as you face each new day. It can also, inadvertently, impact those close to us.
Recently, many of us have found our normal sleep routine disrupted and while some struggle to get out of bed in the mornings, others lack energy throughout, or at different times of the day.
Day to-day activities like work, gardening or going for a stroll can leave you feeling more worn out than usual.

Some of us are also now feeling increasingly low and anxious. If any of this sounds familiar, you’re not alone.
The good news is these feelings of low energy can often be addressed with a healthy diet, routine and food supplements.
In particular, more people are discovering the link between a magnesium deficiency in their diets and those debilitating feelings of tiredness and fatigue.
To assist, the experts at nutritional supplement company FutureYou Cambridge offer a solution that maximises absorption and helps maintain the required levels of magnesium for your body.

Magnesium supplement use has almost doubled in the UK since 2016 according to the 2019 Health of the Nation Survey released by the Health Food Manufacturers’ Association.
Nearly 70% of UK adults now take food supplements with 13.4% opting for magnesium. Miriam Ferrer PhD, head of product development at FutureYou Cambridge is not surprised by these recent trends: ‘With the increase of fast and pre-prepared foods and less access to quality fresh produce, it’s difficult to ensure you consume the recommended balance of vitamins and minerals on a regular basis.’
Magnesium is an essential mineral that helps muscles function correctly, keeps bones strong and importantly where fatigue is concerned, it’s fundamental for energy production at a cellular level. It’s found naturally within common food items like kale, spinach, nuts and whole grains.
Michelle Green says she feels she has had more energy and improved mood since taking Magnesium+
Michelle Green, 52, a busy mum-of-two who also runs a blog for over fifties, Fifty & Fab says: ‘I’ve coped much better and have had more energy thanks to supplementing my diet with Magnesium+. It’s improved my mood and helped me relax * – I think it’s something we should all be taking.’
According to the last UK National Diet & Nutrition Survey, less than half of adults in the UK consume the recommended daily amount of magnesium. Increasing intake can help bring back normal energy levels.
However, sometimes it’s just not enough to have an extra helping of greens or to add a banana to our cereal, to meet our recommended daily intake.
Unfortunately, as we get older, it also gets more difficult to absorb magnesium. Sleeping well is also crucial to our physical and mental health and wellbeing, but getting a decent night’s sleep is not always easy.
The magnesium lactate used in Magnesium+ is an organic form. It’s at least twice as easy for the body to absorb as magnesium oxide
Michelle has been taking Magnesium+ for about a year and has seen a real difference. She takes one capsule every night before she goes to bed, and adds: ‘I definitely wouldn’t want to stop taking them. I’m sleeping so much better so I feel much more rested during the day.
‘I’m going through the menopause right now and insomnia is just one of the symptoms’ she continues.
‘During lockdown the family has been around much more than usual and I’ve been preparing three meals a day as opposed to the usual one evening meal, as well as working on my blog – I feel Magnesium+ has really helped me.’
Another person who swears by Magnesium+ is Mark Wishart, 45, who works as a recruitment consultant and is also a keen runner.
He explains how taking the vegan-friendly Magnesium+ helps him stay energised: ‘I’m constantly on the go at work and like to run in my spare time – everything from park runs to marathons.
‘Magnesium is absolutely key to me and the importance has been underlined since recently studying for a BTN Academy online nutrition course. It confirmed just how difficult it is to gain the correct amount of magnesium through food and how a lack of magnesium can affect your energy levels.

‘I first heard about taking magnesium through friends at my running club. I used to suffer with sore muscles after long runs. I tried a few high street brands but since moving to Magnesium+ I’ve really noticed that I recover quicker, I have more energy and I’m less tired than I used to be. I just don’t think people are aware what a difference it can make.’
Sara Carnegie-Brown, who is in her seventies agrees: ‘I’m usually quite sceptical about these things, but I’ve found taking FutureYou Cambridge’s Magnesium+ supplement has quite literally changed my life.’
Sara continues: ‘I like to keep myself busy with my allotment, looking after my own garden, doing pilates as well as seeing my network of girlfriends. After my husband died seven years ago, I felt tired and lacking in energy and had lost my natural zest for life.

‘I tried other supplements on the market, which had very little effect. I did my own research as well as hearing good things about FutureYou Cambridge from friends, so decided to give their magnesium a try. For me it was simply revolutionary. I feel more energised, more in tune with myself – Magnesium+ really works. I now begin to panic if I start to run out.’

Miriam Ferrer explains: ‘The magnesium lactate used in Magnesium+ is an organic form. It’s at least twice as easy for the body to absorb as magnesium oxide, which is most commonly used in supplements.
‘Magnesium oxide products may contain high amounts but they’re not easily released in the body, meaning they tend to have lower absorption rates.’
She adds: ‘Taking too much magnesium over a long period can affect the digestive system. By taking the more absorbable lactate form, more magnesium enters your bloodstream despite the lower levels per capsule. This also means it’s less likely to cause side effects, such as an upset stomach, that can result from too much unabsorbed magnesium.’
She continues: ‘Our fruits and vegetables are often ripened artificially so even when we’re getting our five a day, it’s often not enough to meet the daily recommended intake of magnesium.’
