You may know of the important role that magnesium plays in maintaining healthy bones and muscles, but did you realise that magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body? One of magnesium's important functions, is the role it plays in our ability to cope with anxiety and stress, helping to moderate the stress response and keep us calm. The lower your magnesium levels, the more you will react to stress. Unfortunately, stress itself, whether mental or physical, seriously depletes magnesium, as our stores are used up in reacting to stress. So it`s a catch 22 situation!
Moreover if your diet is high in sugars, more magnesium will be excreted from the body via the kidneys. Magnesium is also rapidly depleted in the body by excessive alcohol as well as by certain prescription medications such as diuretics and painkillers.
Food sources of magnesium include leafy green vegetables, nuts and seeds, whole grains, bananas, beans, lentils and salmon, but when the going gets tough you may benefit from topping up your magnesium levels with a well absorbed magnesium supplment.
When taken about an hour before bed, magnesium may help to calm the nervous system and relax the muscles for that all-important good-night`s sleep.
