Magnesium For Depression

Magnesium For Depression

Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in the body. Studies show that magnesium deficiency can put you at risk of depression and that people who suffer from depression are found to be magnesium deficient. People who have depression almost always have symptoms of extreme fatigue and constant brain fog. The reason you might have chronic fatigue and brain fog with depression is because you have a magnesium deficiency. Brain fog can cause you to feel confused, unable to focus, unable to think clearly and you might even experience memory problems. The reason you might have chronic fatigue and brain fog with depression is because you have a magnesium deficiency. And since magnesium is essential in maintaining optimal brain and cognitive function, having too little of it can cause these exact symptoms.

We get most of our magnesium from plants, seeds and nuts and is depleted by stress and mental health issures. Sometimes we do need to take a supplement to get the right amounts of magnesium in order to funcion properly. I call this magnesium therapy. I'm not sure if that's what it's actually called, but I kind of like to make up my own little phrases lol. Some people might think that this is a load of bull because "how can taking this simple mineral get rid of depression" and "if that were true then why wouldn't doctors either tell you to take it or prescribe it to you". Well, the simple short answer is that they push medications on us because that is what they are required to do by the pharmaceutical companies. Most people with depression don't really need anti-depressants and mood stabilizers. All they need is to take the right natural supplements, minerals and other wonderful miracle cures such as CBD oil which I have discussed in my previous blog post HERE
