Anxiety Caused By Deficiency Of This One Mineral

Anxiety Caused By Magnesium Deficiency

I found this article of great interest because magnesium is a vital mineral.  The symptoms are varied, not just anxiety.  Further reading makes it clear just how many conditions can be traced to a deficiency in magnesium.

 While our ancestors had an abundance of magnesium from organ meats, seafood, swimming in the ocean, and rich soil, it isn’t uncommon to be depleted today. The modern diet is sufficiently lacking in magnesium and our soil is no longer as healthy as it once was. Stress is also a factor – not only does it worsen anxiety and depression symptoms, it rapidly depletes magnesium from the body. In a time when most people eat poorly, work long hours and stress is commonplace – it’s no wonder why most people are magnesium deficient. But could this also be the reason why so many people experience anxiety?
