Feeling a bit moody?
Maybe a bit on the low end, a bit blue, not as chipper like a morning bird?
I get you, we've all been there, but if it has been a chronic and consistent problem, then it might be worth looking into as a possibly nutrient deficiency.
There are many minerals that can influence your mood, but one of the most important and pivotal minerals that hold many functions in the body is magnesium. Magnesium is essential for function within the central nervous system which can directly influence how the body reacts to one's environment, stressors, and emotions. For instance, let's say you've had a really rough day at work and you lack magnesium, you can end up feeling wound up, anxious and wired to the point that you may snap. Your mood is governed to how safe your body feels as a defense mechanism, for alertness is elevated to protect oneself in moments of danger or unease. In context of depression however, it's typically a sign of a lack of energy and a slower metabolic rate. It's the end-stage of stress, and both have been connected to magnesium deficiencies.
Several studies have shown it is useful in treating neurological and psychiatric diseases, and I quote "Some epidemiological or observational studies reported that greater dietary intake of magnesium is linked to a general reduced risk of depressive disorders or fewer depressive symptoms". You can find the study here.
Another study such as this one here shows that magnesium levels are lowered in the course of several mental disorders, especially depression and it has several mechanisms in the body linking it to the limbic system, HPA axis, nervous system, blood sugar, and more, expressing the way in which a mental health disorder manifests itself can vary from person to person but the deficiency is till the root cause.
