Magnesium Can Help You Combat Stress



Magnesium is a mineral that is found naturally in many foods.  Magnesium's
role in keeping your nervous system healthy and in combating anxiety is just
now beginning to be understood by researchers. One research study in
2000 from the University of Birmingham in the UK found that
supplementation with magnesium, calcium and zinc reduced anxiety in 80
young males after 28 days of treatment.


A second study in 2000 from the Food Science Technology Department of
the University of Reading in the UK found that taking a supplement of 200
milligrams of magnesium in combination with 50 milligrams of Vitamin B-6
alleviates pre-menstrual symptoms and depression.

What is unclear from these studies and others is whether magnesium alone
was responsible for the decrease in symptoms of stress and anxiety. To
answer this question, more research is needed. However, since neither
magnesium nor the other vitamins and minerals used in combination with
magnesium are toxic when taken in recommended levels, you certainly can
benefit by including  a multi-vitamin with magnesium or eating more
foods
rich in magnesium in your efforts to combat stress.
