To Combat Stress, Try Magnesium
Magnesium has been known as a calming and relaxing mineral for ages. It has been shown to regulate the nervous system and help us cope with stress. It is known to be crucial for muscle and nerve function, energy production/stress reduction, nutrient metabolism, and bone and cell formation. Outside of stress reduction, magnesium has also been shown to reduce muscle pain, help with sleep, aid in digestion and ease headaches.
Most of us don't get enough magnesium in our diets (from foods like dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, and whole grains). If you suffer from anxiety or even experience "natural" stress, it's extra important to incorporate magnesium into your diet.
