If you’ve been feeling more stressed than usual, perhaps its time to turn to magnesium? This mineral that is present in our bodies is responsible for hundreds of chemical reactions that keep our bodies in working condition. A lack of this essential mineral can cause aches and pains, poor sleep, and even impede on our abilities to manage stress and anxiety. In a study published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) it was shown that “magnesium has a profound effect on neural excitability.” The mineral helps your muscles and mind relax, making it an excellent source for stress relief. While you can get magnesium through a healthy diet (whole grains, veggies, and nuts are great sources) the stress-fighting power of magnesium doesn’t end there! Get your daily dose of magnesium with these relaxing spa treatments:
