‘My legs won’t keep still…’
Low iron levels can be the cause of those night-time restless legs and there’s a whole stack of remedies that can help.
WHAT TO TAKE ‘Start tucking into iron-rich foods, such as turkey, chicken, beef, seafood and lentils,’ says Rick. ‘Then add a duo of supplements – a great daily multivit with iron and some magnesium with calcium nightly to help calm nerves and muscles.’

WHAT TO DO Create some pre-bed calm by spraying legs with magnesium oil – to ease restlessness – and sipping a cup of herbal tea, such as passion flower, lemon balm or valerian. It’s a no-brainer for relaxation and great sleep.
