    Signs of Depression – Information you must know when dealing with depression:

    Courtesy of HealthLine, as the info-graphic above demonstrates, depression has become increasingly common, with 1 in 10 Americans being affected. If you or a loved one are showing any signs of depression, getting the right help and support is crucial. An area that is often overlooked yet incredibly important when dealing with depression is ensuring you are getting the right nutritional support. It is all too common to see, people who are suffering from depression, falling into the trap of eating comfort or processed foods which contain very little nutritional value. This having a big impact on how their body & mind functions. Thinking about it in simple terms, in order for your body to be able to function properly, it needs the right nutrients. It’s a bit like looking after your car; if you put the wrong gas into your car it will not perform or run as well. If you put the wrong food into your body, it’s not going to function as well either.

    Magnesium deficiency has been linked to depression. It is a critical mineral that helps support the nervous system function which can impact our emotional state, including stress & anxiety levels and generally how we cope under pressure.

    Processed foods are depleted of their magnesium content through the manufacturing process. Because of the daily pressures that come with living in today’s world, it is easy to disregard the importance of giving our bodies the building blocks necessary for it to look after itself. If you are finding it hard to get the nutrients you need from the food you eat, supplementing your diet with top quality nutritionals is very important. A 2008 clinical trial found that magnesium supplementation was as effective as a tricyclic antidepressant in treating depression in diabetics and without any of the side effects of imipraminei.* As more research is being done in this area, more connections are being found between magnesium deficiency and depression. Although there is no official recommendations on how much magnesium you should take to treat depression, the clinical trial used 125-300mg of magnesium bisglycinate form, with each meal. We advise that you speak to your doctor before self-administering magnesium at this dose to make sure there are no ii in a contraindications for you, and always make sure that you have a professional guidance and support. Magnesium deficiency could be the missing piece in the puzzle for you.
