Who thought the humble magnesium could have such powerful effects on our health and wellbeing? Never underestimate the power of good nutrition again!

Do you know that 7.5 per cent of Indians suffer from depression, and that our country is the worst hit by depression? Worldwide, this rate has increased by 18 per cent in just 10 years. That’s worrying, to say the least. Adults and children are both being prescribed antidepressants to combat this disorder, which come with their share of side-effects.

Depression and anxiety disorders are rampant in today’s day, given the high stress levels experienced on the work front, social front, and personal front. What’s alarming are the number of children who are dealing with stress and depression. Therapists have reported a high increase in patients who are school-going children. They’re prescribing them antidepressants to deal with their mental health issues.

A breakthrough study, conducted at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont, has published that instead of taking antidepressants, people should be taking magnesium.

Magnesium, an inexpensive and safe mineral, has the ability to reverse the symptoms of depression. 248 grams of magnesium, taken every day, is all you need to get rid of depression and anxiety disorders.

Magnesium is known for benefitting cardiovascular health, brain health, and kidney health. Foods rich in magnesium include dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, fish, beans, whole grains, avocados, yoghurt, bananas, dried fruit, and dark chocolate.

So instead of spending a packet on medication to treat depression and anxiety, you can now add a dose of magnesium to your daily nutritional intake, and beat the blues.
