Millions of Americans struggle with depression every single year. For them, life can feel like a never-ending battle, and a hole they just can’t get out of.
As a result, many seek anti-depressants for some much needed relief. Unfortunately, many times these drugs aren’t everything customers hope for them to be. Many also come with various side-effects, such as nausea, fatigue, drowsiness, insomnia, and loss of sexual desire.
In addition, some users even report that anti-depressants aren’t successful, and so they resort to more extreme measures to try to find relief.
Thankfully, there is new hope to those suffering from depression. According to a new health study, researchers are finding that magnesium can be a key ingredient to help pull sufferers out of their depressive slump.
According to Natural News:
A breakthrough nutritional study conducted at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont and published in PLoS ONE has found that just 248mg of magnesium per day leads to an astounding reversal of depression symptoms in study subjects.
“New clinical research results show magnesium is effective at addressing symptoms and is safer and easier on the wallet than prescription therapies,” reports Science Daily, echoing the reporting of Natural News from over a decade ago. Today, even mainstream science is now confirming that magnesium is a safe, affordable and effective treatment for depression.
What’s really astonishing about all this is that while dangerous pharmaceuticals are bankrupting our nation and causing our health care system to collapse under the weight of out-of-control costs, magnesium can treat and prevent depression for mere pennies a day. Just a quarter of a gram of magnesium is all that’s necessary, and it costs less than 10 cents a day.
Plus, the powerful nutritional benefits of magnesium help prevent mineral deficiencies and chronic disease in many other ways across the body, imparting enormous benefits for cardiovascular health, brain health, kidney health and much more. Yet, astonishingly, nobody in the Republican camp is talking about reforming health care by turning to natural nutritional remedies that could save billions of dollars a year on health care expenditures. That’s why I have called out Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Dan Bongino for failing to embrace true free market solutions that include health freedom and support for nutritional therapies and natural remedies. (Republicans seem forever stuck in the pharmaceutical model of treating sickness with chemicals, then claiming it’s a “free market” when you can buy into that system across state lines, even while natural medicine is criminalized.)
Isn’t it amazing how something as simple as magnesium can bring such an enormous transformation to your health? It’s truly astounding how something as natural as this chemical element can provide such an immense impact to your life and well-being.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that pharmaceutical companies are getting onboard with this. Which is why you shouldn’t hold your breath. Instead, it’s probably best to stock up on all the sources of magnesium you can find.
One of the best and easiest ways to load up on your daily dose of magnesium is to take a supplement. However, you can also find magnesium in all sorts of foods, such as spinach, chard, pumpkin seeds, yogurt, almonds, and black beans.
