Magnesium helps you stay zen!
Daily life is frequently a source of stress and worry, leading to transient fatigue, irritability, etc. A number of natural solutions for preserving your balance and emotional well-being are available, such as magnesium consumption.
Magnesium is essential for many of the body's functions, contributing in particular to normal nervous system function. You should thus ensure that you maintain sufficiently high magnesium levels.
Magnesium requirements vary with age and sex. For example, an adult male needs 420 mg of magnesium per day, compared to 360 mg for an adult female. These values are of 410 mg for a teenage boy between the ages of 16 and 19 years, versus 370 mg for a similarly aged teenage girl.
What situations promote deficiency?
Some situations are conducive to magnesium deficiency, i.e. restrictive diets, the exclusion of certain foods (chocolate, starch products, bread, dried fruit, etc.) and over-consumption of processed foods. Moreover, stressful situations also tend to deplete magnesium reserves.
The body needs a regular input of magnesium, found in dried vegetables, wholemeal cereals, chocolate and some mineral waters.
What you should know
Magnesium can be combined with vitamin B6. Indeed, this latter reinforces its action and contributes to emotional balance. You can find this combination in certain food supplements.
