didn't relieve insomnia; did relieve restless legs,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this magnesium oil hoping it would relieve my insomnia. Unfortunately, if anything it caused more disturbed sleep (even using it at 7am, 4-5 squirts per bottle instructions). However, it does seem to relieve a slight tendency to restless legs when I go to bed. One squirt every other day seems to prevent restless legs without exacerbating the insomnia, so I'll probably buy it again.
I only experienced the burning that some others have mentioned the one time I sprayed it under my arms--ouch! No problem on my legs, hips, belly, arms.

Huh. Interesting point. I did cut waaay back on wheat about a year ago. Haven't had restless leg problems since I started using magnesium, so couldn't tell if cutting back on wheat might have helped with the legs. However: for 2-3 years prior to cutting back on wheat, I had sporadic problems with itchy red bumps on my elbows (possibly dermatitis herpetiformis, mentioned in the book "Wheat Belly"), and that problem has not recurred since the near elimination of wheat from my diet.

Since I find restless legs to be quite nightmarish, it seems almost amusing the product only received three stars for that--and based on what it couldn't do. I didn't know it was promoted as relieving insomnia though, and maybe it is.

a critical review for a product that relieved restless leg for less than $10? tough crowd.
