Improve your chances of waking up happy, with magnesium!
Your body has over 600 uses for magnesium, including protein formation, muscle movement, energy creation, nervous system regulation and more!
In a recent study magnesium was shown to improve depression in participants who took 2000 mgs a day for 6 weeks. The study also found that participants had less aches and pains, headaches and constipation.

Good old avocados are also high in magnesium, as are nuts, legumes, tofu, seeds and bananas.
Great news! Dark Chocolate is chock full of magnesium, but be mindful of not going overboard on portion size.
