The human condition can be affected by stress, overwork, worry & bad nerves. Our nervous system needs back up to work efficiently. When it is working properly we have calm feelings & good moods, we are happy & not overthinking.

Calmness is a skill to be worked at, though for some it seems to be their main state. Meditation, deep breathing & positive thinking can bring this state of calm on.

Our nerves can be undernourished & can over react as a result. One mineral highly valued in the working of our nerves is magnesium, sometimes called ‘the Great Relaxer’.

Magnesium can help with anxiety, with getting to sleep & alleviate muscle spasms, night leg shaking & cramps. Magnesium is involved in hundreds of functions in the body, one of the most important being to regulate heartbeat. In conjunction with potassium, it does this marvellously.

Magnesium deficiency is often overlooked as a reason for cardiovascular disorders. People suffering from Epstein Barr Virus & or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can benefit greatly by supplementing with magnesium. A dose of 500mg daily can start to benefit the user in many ways with its effects felt starting about a week into its use. It can help overcome paranoid feelings that arise in some people & is a safe alternative to for many overprescribed medicines for slight depressive states.

It may help your overall immune system, exercise performance, brain function & mood, diabetics management, prevent migraines, hangovers, PMS & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Serotonin relaxes the nervous system & is dependent on magnesium to operate. For better overall health & a calmer nervous system incorporate some magnesium into your daily intake. A safe mineral that many in the modern world do not get enough of.
