Stress and Magnesium

Recently read a great article by Dr. Mark Hyman about the links between inflammation, stress, and a general deficiency in the mineral magnesium. You can read the full article here.

Be sure to check with your doctor before adding it, because it can impact people with heart issues in particular. Also the article indicates too much can cause diarrhea.

When it comes to stress relief and stress management, we need to take a multi-pronged approach. Nutrition is probably the first place we should start, and the easiest thing to change. The article provides a full list of foods to naturally boost your magnesium levels. Some of the foods listed that I love are cashews, brown rice, parsley, amongst others. Think I might find a recipe for a Mediterranean grain salad or something to add some of these ingredients and let go of my stress:-)
