When I was pregnant a few summers ago I experienced the worst headaches which would last beyond 24 hours. As a pregnant woman I refused to take even the recommended pain relievers. This left me with a dilemma. When meeting with my doctor she recommended I supplement with magnesium as it helps with headaches. I was amazed at the results and how it reduced my headaches. Not only was increasing magnesium personally helpful to me it started my journey in wanting to learn more about the mineral Magnesium and little did I know it would be so crucial to helping others.
Throughout the week we help people with ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Sleep Problems, Mood Problems related to Physical Pain, Chronic Fatigue, Alcoholism, Pre-menstual Syndrome (PMS) and so on! As a constant student I have found Magnesium to be a core solution to all these problems. In fact, research studies show at least 80% of Americans have Magnesium deficiency (http://sleepsmarterbook.com). And in children diagnosed with ADHD about 96% are deficient in Magnesium (https://www.finallyfocusedbook.com).
Magnesium can be found in foods such as brown rice, bananas, halibut, cashews, almonds, chocolate (avoid high sugar), black beans, avocado, spinach, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, figs, edamame, broccoli and more. Consuming these foods will absolutely help your magnesium problem; however, its important to note Americans are experiencing magnesium deficiencies as our soil is not as rich with the nutrient. We also use a lot of Magnesium throughout the day requiring it to be replenished more often. Supplements can help but it's recommended you try a high quality to aid in absorption.
Magnesium is a must for healthy mental health as it helps facilitate neuron firing in the brain, functioning of the muscles, maintaining a healthy digestive system, and nerve functioning.
