An English woman has lived with the very annoying Restless Leg Syndrome for 40 years which has made her life a total misery, with legs “jumping” day and night. She has tried many things over the years with little or no relief until she tried magnesium supplements, Bio-Magnesium.
Mrs Sandra Duckworth (late fifties) lives in Poulton Lancashire. She is a widow with 3 kids, one of which is still at home. She works from home and assists a local hedgehog rescue charity ran by her sister. Mrs Duckworth has lived with restless legs since she was a teenager. As a young woman, this meant that socialising was difficult. She couldn't sit still. Going to shows or to the cinema with friends was impossible due to her legs taking on a life of their own. When married life came along, the combination of looking after small children and a snoring husband made it difficult to sleep. The restless legs made quality sleep impossible.
Medication had no effect
Sandra was very self-conscious about her problem, which she considered too trivial and embarrassing to take to a doctor. When she did seek help, she took part in a twelve week trial of the medication that had no effect, apart from causing constant nausea.
Sandra did some research and found the recommendation of magnesium supplements. She tried a number of brands, including sprays, all to no avail. Eventually, she came across Bio-Magnesium, which contains a combination of three types of magnesium to ensure easy digestion and good bioavailability. It is made to pharmaceutical standards, blister-packed and produced by Pharma Nord.
Magnesium is a versatile mineral involved in over 300 enzyme-catalyzed essential metabolic reactions within the body. In particular, magnesium is important for the normal functioning of the heart and skeletal muscles, the normal functioning of nerves, and normal blood clotting, as well as in the body’s energy supply process. Many individuals do not have an adequate intake of magnesium, because of their reliance on processed foods. Magnesium stores are depleted by drinking alcohol. Magnesium used in dietary supplements may occur in several chemical forms with great difference in their bioavailability
Restful sleep at last
After taking Bio-Magnesium, Sandra found that she could lie in bed, watching TV and then gently drift off to a peaceful sleep. Before then, she lived with the fear of being kept awake and pacing the floor all night.
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
Also called Ekbom's disease is often described as crawling sensations, electric charge and jumpy or twitchy legs. Attacks can occur every 10-60 seconds and are worse in the evenings when resting or lying down. The effects can also affect the arms. Sufferers may not notice attacks happening while they're sleeping.
RLS is rare in individuals under 30 years of age. The frequency of attacks increases with age. Some experience RLS only at bedtime, while others experience it throughout the day and night. Most sufferers experience the worst symptoms in the evening and the least in the morning.
A connection seems to exist between lifestyle, a general state of health, and the frequency of RLS attacks. People suffering from anaemia, diabetes, kidney problems, heart problems, atherosclerosis and nervous diseases are more likely to develop RLS. Those that are overweight, smoke or do not exercise are also more likely to develop RLS. The cause of RLS is unknown. In about 1/3 of the affected people, the condition is hereditary. The symptoms it is believed to originate from spasms in the arterial walls. In some cases, the cause can be vitamin- and mineral deficiencies, electrolytic imbalances, and lack of fluid.

Transcript of original letter: Hello, I would like to tell you about my experience with your Bio-Magnesium tablets. For as long as I can remember I have suffered from RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome), which has made my life a total misery, with my legs 'jumping' day and night. I have tried many things over the years with little or no relief until I tried your tablets. I can honestly say they have made a huge improvement and have quite literally changed my life. There I was, absolutely desperate to find something which would help this condition and I have at last found it. I am in my late 50's, so it's been a long, difficult journey, but you have no idea what it means to be able to sit or lie down without your legs taking on a life of their own and jumping around. I will make sure I take my daily dose to keep this awful condition at bay. Many thanks. Yours sincerely, Mrs Sandra Duckworth.
