Anxiety & Magnesium

DID YOU KNOW THAT 75% OF AMERICANS ARE MAGNESIUM DEFICIENT?

 

 

 

Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral that has such a strong connection to anxiety that it's considered to be the original "chill pill". 

 

This mineral restricts the release of stress hormones and acts as a filter to prevent them entering the brain which essentially helps reduce stress, anxiousness, restlessness and brain fog. 

 

Another cool thing about magnesium is that it aids as an anti-inflammatory and brain inflammation is linked to anxiety, depression, and memory loss. 

 

 

FUN FACT

 

 

Increasing brain plasticity can help you rewire your anxious brain and magnesium is one of the only minerals that can help with that!
