I chose magnesium because I suffer quite badly with PMS and period symptoms. Since taking Thriva’s supplements, I’ve noticed a reduction in my menstrual headaches. I trust Thriva to produce high-quality supplements that contain what they say they do.
“Magnesium is one of your body’s most important nutrients.
Studies suggest between 10-30% of us are deficient. Magnesium deficiency is linked to diseases, like heart disease, diabetes, and depression. And can impact your sleep and stress.
Evidence suggests you can manage your stress and sleep levels with a magnesium supplement like Thriva’s.”
