The Relaxation Mineral

One mineral to take to a desert island, if you had to pick just one, would be magnesium--the "relaxation mineral."

"If you are deficient in this mineral," says Dr. Mark Hyman, " you are twice as likely to die."

Though 65% of Americans are estimated to be deficient in magnesium, and despite thousands of medical references on how magnesium affects the body, we still don't think the take this simple supplement. Magnesium has largely been depleted through our processed foods diets, and is also drained from our bodies with caffeine, soda, alcohol, sugar and salt. As a result, we feel achey, stressed, cranky, and unable to relax or sleep. Millions have become dependent on sleeping pills and tranquilizers. But there is a very simple solution. Supplement your diet with magnesium, and increase your intake of magnesium rich foods, such as kelp, wheat bran, pecans, almonds, cashews, dulce, millet, collard greens, figs, avocado, garlic and more. Another great way to relax your muscles and absorb magnesium is to take an epsom salt bath.

This is your secret weapon against stress. Use it!
