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.)
One of the best sources of magnesium is wheatgrass.
Wheatgrass has hundreds of nutrients, but the most prevalent and powerful one by far is chlorophyll. Magnesium is the primary component in chlorophyll. The calming power of the magnesium in chlorophyll relaxes muscles and acts as a natural stress-reliever. This vital nutrient is involved in cell transport and biochemical reactions throughout the body. Magnesium has often been used as a home remedy for many physical and emotional maladies, including irritability, headaches, depression and menstrual cramps. Recent studies show that magnesium can help reverse anxiety, depression and fatigue in patients.
