Soothe Your Stress

15 May

Feeling on edge?  You may not be getting enough magnesium, about two-thirds of us aren’t.

Research shows that skimping on this mineral could contribute to anxiety symptoms like irritability, tension and difficulty sleeping. Eating enough, however, about 400 mg a day, may help reduce risk of diabetes, heart disease and cognitive decline. That’s because magnesium is like your metabolism’s point guard: It assists in over 300 chemical reactions, including those involved in blood pressure regulation and muscle and nerve function.

Eat more magnesium: Swiss chard (150 mg per cup), salmon (60 mg per 6-oz serving), almonds (80 mg per serving), soybeans (55 mg per 1/2 cup edamame) and avocado (58 mg in one)!
