Think you’ve got a bad case of the Mondays? Think again.

While we all feel a bit tired or anxious from time to time, if you feel like you’ve been dragging for months (even years), you might want to add a natural relaxation mineral to your daily diet, otherwise known as magnesium.

Magnesium deficiency is quite common today. Research shows that about 80 percent of us are low, which is problematic for maintaining strong bones and muscles, getting sound sleep, and even proper heart and brain function.

In fact, every cell in the human body requires enough magnesium to function.

Some of the biggest signs that your magnesium levels might be low are sleep problems, irritability and anxiety. It also contributes to memory problems, PMS, muscle cramps, constipation, asthma, migraines and even panic attacks.

Whoa, where did all the magnesium go?

Modern conventional farming depletes our soil of magnesium, which in turn affects the crops. (Another reason to go organic!) Other habits that deprive us of normal magnesium levels include eating too much white flour and white sugar, excessive alcohol or coffee consumption and certain medications.

Good food sources of this magic mineral include dark leafy greens, sea vegetables, unrefined sea salt, pumpkin seeds, avocados and dark chocolate (at least 70 percent cacao). Yes, we just gave you another excuse to eat more chocolate.

If these foods are already staples in your diet, you might want to take a supplement. Dr. Mark Hyman recommends taking about 400 to 1,000 mg a day to boost your levels.
