A simple search on Google will bring up a lot of articles discussing the benefits of magnesium to help with anxiety and stress. I’ve taken magnesium myself and have found it to help me relax before going to sleep. And when I get a good night’s sleep, my stress level goes down considerably.
While you should consult a healthcare practitioner before making changes to your diet, if you and your healthcare practitioner agree that adding magnesium could benefit you, I would suggest trying to get it from magnesium-rich foods first before adding a supplement.
As an additional benefit, most of the foods rich in magnesium will balance your overall diet. I recently started a vegetarian diet that includes many of these foods, and I have noticed my energy level go up and I don’t feel nearly as lethargic as I used to feel with more processed foods in my diet. I’ve also seen a significant positive effect in my glucose numbers as a diabetic.
