Magnesium and Depression

Did you know that a deficiency in this mineral has been linked to  depression, anxiety and other mental health issues? With more and more people being diagnosed with depression and anxiety every day, it’s worth taking a look at the nutrients in our diet and if  nutrient deficiencies could be playing a role.

Magnesium is one of the most  common minerals that we are most likely deficient in, due to poor soil and diet quality – it’s important for many things, but essential for mental health.

A magnesium deficiency will result in a serotonin deficiency, which as we know is a cause of depression. So aim for more magnesium in your day to stay happy and healthy!

Foods that are high in Magnesium are: Dark leafy greens like kale and spinach, nuts and seeds, avocado, banana, dark    chocolate Supplementation is advised to get adequate dosage.
