When stress and tension attack from all sides… how to relax the mind and body?

Stress and tension as parts of everyday life

Stress and its synonyms are probably, and unfortunately, the most used words nowadays. In the age we live in, it somehow seems to us that when we complain to friends or family, we mostly use statements and phrases: “I’m too nervous”, “I am feeling overwhelmed by tension “I’m under constant stress”, “I feel like a deflated balloon ”,“ I can’t get up, I’m aching all over ”…

If you are familiar with these phrases and statements, you know what we are talking about. When we feel that way, we think that we need who knows what miraculous products to “revive” us and relax our mind and body. And, of course, we have no idea that, as a rule, the best solutions are always the simplest and completely natural ones.

Let’s see what happens in our body when we are tense and exhausted, usually due to work, everyday problems, and obligations. Irritability tears us apart, our muscles ache and we often get cramps, we feel stiff, exhausted, and crushed.

 

The key role of magnesium in the response to stress

If you feel this way most of the time, it is very likely that you lack one important mineral – magnesium in the first place. You may not have known this until now, but in order to relax muscles, nerves and the whole body in general, it is necessary to take the optimal dose of magnesium (375 mg) on ​​a daily basis. Magnesium is a mineral responsible for over 300 of the most important biochemical reactions in our body, especially those for intercellular exchange, which cause nutrients to reach our tissues and muscles so that they can be nourished, loose and relaxed.

We can say that Magnesium is a universal solution for various physical and mental conditions that bother you. A study [1] by Wacker and Parisi back in 1968 confirmed that magnesium deficiency can cause depression, behavioral disorders, headaches, muscle cramps, seizures, ataxia, psychosis, and irritability, but all of these conditions led to the reversible improvement of the required magnesium dose with the compensation of this mineral.

There is a well-known theory that chronic stress leads to excess cortisol, which damages the hippocampus of the brain. Some authors [2] pointed out that magnesium has a key role in the regulation of stress, as well as the regulation of other hormones. Magnesium can suppress the ability of the hippocampus to stimulate the final release of stress hormones, as well as reduce the release of ACTH (a hormone that instructs your adrenal gland to “pump out” cortisol and adrenaline from cells) [3]. These are all reasons why magnesium is called a key mineral for relaxing the nervous system and mood lifting.

 

Vitamin B complex against fatigue and stress

In addition to magnesium, another vitamin complex – vitamin B complex – is very important for the fight against fatigue, stress and the nervous system overload.

There are eight basic B vitamins: thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), vitamin B6, biotin (vitamin B7), folic acid (folate or vitamin B9), and vitamin B12. Each of them plays a significant role in many functions in our body, the most important of which are nutrition and the normal functioning of the nervous system, cellular metabolism, the creation of red blood cells, and the conversion of food into energy.

The vitamin B complex plays a major role in stabilization of mood and the nervous system, supporting the proper functioning of the brain, neurotransmitters, nourishing and improving the condition of your nerves, which has been confirmed by many studies [4].

A 2014 study [5] by Swinburne University in Australia found that chronic stress reduces the level of vitamin B in the body. Also, this study showed a reduction in stress due to work by as much as 20%, in people who consumed the recommended daily dose of vitamin B complex.

A study [6] published in the British Medical Journal in 2004 found that folic acid (folate) can help boost a person’s mood. Folic acid, or vitamin B9, in addition to improving mood and ensuring healthy brain function, prevents the risk of birth defects and various fetal malformations during pregnancy, which is very important for pregnant women and women planning a pregnancy, to provide the required daily amount of this type of vitamin B [7].
