Her.ie cites studies that suggest magnesium footbaths may help with sleep.

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.
