If you are deficient in magnesium it can cause muscle cramping and weakness. Increase muscle soreness and lower your immune system

 One way to make sure that you’re getting enough magnesium is consuming foods high in magnesium.  Cacao (dark chocolate 70% and higher), kelp and other sea vegetables and blackstrap molasses are all particularly high in magnesium. 

Also majority of people have a difficult time getting adequate amount of sleep.  One reason can be again magnesium deficiency, so taking magnesium supplements should help.  

If you aren’t able to get enough magnesium through diet, you can always take magnesium supplements. Magnesium does have potent laxative affect, so be careful when you first start , its best start out with a lower dosage and gradually increase it.

I have taken magnesium for years, even a dose (tablet form) of magnesium an hour before the dentist has a calming effect on me
