Magnesium for Mood Support
Kelly Sherman, MS, NC, CPT
Magnesium is one of the most critical minerals in the body — in fact, it plays a role in more than 300 biochemical processes vital to everyday function, including muscle movement, bone integrity, immune response, insulin function, and of course, healthy mood.
Those who experience stress may know how difficult it can be to shut their brains off at night. Sometimes, racing thoughts and overstimulation can make restful sleep a challenge. Therefore, magnesium is sometimes suggested for people who struggle to sleep at night.*
If you are needing a little extra support, consider supplementing with magnesium to improve your sleep and overall wellness. Ideally, you should get your magnesium from whole food sources, but that is frequently not possible. Additionally, a diet high in sugar leaves many people deficient in magnesium. If you think you may be low in magnesium, check out this post to learn more about all that it does for your body.
