I love Genestra HMF Forte. Probiotics work for me, along with a healthy diet and magnesium in the evening! Magnesium plays a role in numerous enzymes systems throughout the body. A few of these processes include energy production from protein, carbohydrate, and fat metabolism. Magnesium may also improve your sleep. It plays an important role in your nervous system, helping to activate mechanisms that quiet and calm you.
