New Study – Magnesium Found to Treat Depression Better Than Antidepressant Drugs
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), depression is the most common illness worldwide and the leading cause of disability. They estimate that 350 million people are affected by depression, globally.
Depression is a mental disorder that causes people to experience the loss of interest or pleasure, low self-worth or feelings of guilt, disturbed appetite or sleep, low energy, and poor concentration.
Signs and symptoms:
Tiredness and loss of energy.
Loss of self-confidence and self-esteem.
Sadness that doesn’t go away.
Not being able to enjoy pleasurable and interesting things.
Avoiding other people, even your close friends.
Feeling anxious all the time.
Feelings of hopelessness and helplessness.
Very strong feelings of worthlessness or guilt.
Loss of appetite.
Finding it hard to function at work/school.
Physical aches and pains.
Loss of sex drive and/or sexual problems.
Thinking about suicide and death.
In order to treat depression, most of these people turn to psychotherapy or take antidepressant drugs prescribed by doctors. However, not all depression sufferers can afford the necessary medications and treatments.
But recently, a study has discovered an affordable alternative that can help the treatment of depression at a very low price.
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.
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.
New clinical research results show magnesium is effective at addressing symptoms and is safer and easier on the wallet than prescription therapies.
Today, even mainstream science is now confirming that magnesium is a safe, affordable and effective treatment for depression.
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.
