Magnesium to treat depression:
Research suggests that depression and magnesium deficiency are linked. Magnesium deficiency can cause agitation and severe anxiety coupled with feelings of depression.
Symptoms of a magnesium deficiency include anxiety, insomnia, irritability, confusion, abnormal heart rhythms, hyperventilation, agitation, nausea, fatigue, muscle spasms, low blood pressure, vomiting, and seizures.
Your magnesium levels may be depleted by too much coffee, soda, salt, alcohol, or diuretics. It can also be lowered by excessive sweating, heavy menstrual periods, and long-term stress.
How To Get Enough Magnesium
Unfortunately, magnesium is often not well absorbed by the digestive track, and is even more difficult to absorb if you are deficient or are low in vitamin D, have poor gut bacteria or suffer from a number of other conditions. On top of that, most foods are depleted of their natural magnesium levels and the water supply is lacking also. For this reason, we use topical magnesium supplementation for our family.
The best way to supplement with magnesium, is by using it on the skin, where it is absorbed more directly to the cells. This is not only the safest way, since the body will only use what is needed, but the most effective.
Unlike internal doses of magnesium, topical magnesium does not have to pass through the digestive system and kidneys and can more quickly enter the blood and tissues of the body.
