Who doesn’t lead a fast paced life these days, even more so when you have a young family? It still surprises me as we have so much technology and things at our fingertips than in days gone by, but when speaking to my husband this weekend about it, he believes it is because we do more in one day than we did probably 50 years ago.
Therefore leading a fast paced life on a regular basis can lead to stress, tiredness and unhealthy habits such as junk food and certainly no time for regular exercise or ‘me time’. This is where the power of vitamins come in and I understand that they are not for everyone especially if you eat a well balanced diet. However for some of us, convenience and time seems to take priority.
Vitamins are simply compounds that our bodies cannot produce and we need to get from food but when you are not eating a balanced diet that is when you can start to feel sluggish, tired and irritable, to name a few symptoms. Unfortunately it is only when we feel this way we understand that we are lacking in certain vitamins, therefore I truly believe people should take vitamins before reaching that point.
Today I have been researching magnesium and have found that low levels have a huge impact on both anxiety and depression which appears to be on the increase as certain statistics are showing one in five adults now suffer from depression. Other connections to low levels include headaches, insomnia and poor concentration to name a few.
Foods that are high in magnesium include seeds, nuts and oats. Therefore if you think you have low levels of magnesium increase the foods that have high levels of it and take a supplement. If you suffer with anxiety or depression and no one has mentioned magnesium to you, then I would speak to your doctor and get some. If this has been of some value, please do share and please reach out if you would like to know about the magnesium supplements that I recommend.
