Stress Reduction and Magnesium Intake

Magnesium Intake and Stress Reduction

MMW Fortschr Med. 2016 Dec;158(Suppl 6):12-16. Epub 2016 Dec 8. [Long-term HRV analysis shows stress reduction by magnesium intake]. Wienecke E, Nolden C. Abstract BACKGROUND: Mental pressure and stress represent an ever-increasing socio-political challenge. The heart rate variability (HRV) measurement, which has its origin in the cardiac function diagnosis, gives information on the neurovegetative activity. [...]

Magnesium Treatment for Depression

Clinical depression is a serious mental disorder characterized by low mood, anhedonia, loss of interest in daily activities, and other symptoms, and is associated with severe consequences including suicide and increased risk of cardiovascular events. Depression affects nearly 15% of the population. Treatment for the last 50 years has focused on monoamine neurotransmitters, including such [...]

Magnesium Deficiency Significantly Related to Depression

Abstract: The objective of this study was to evaluate the nutrition status of people referred to a nutrition and physical activity program for the management of mental health in general practice. Patients currently being treated for depression and/or anxiety were referred by their GPs to a lifestyle intervention program. The nutrition status was assessed during [...]

Magnesium and Hearing Loss Reduction

Magnesium Reduces Hearing Loss

Oral magnesium intake reduces permanent hearing loss induced by noise exposure. Abstract: Introduction: Following animal experiments where correlations were observed between serum magnesium level and noise-induced permanent hearing threshold shifts (NIPTS), we tested the prophylactic effect of magnesium in human subjects exposed to hazardous noise. Methods: Subjects were 300 young, healthy, and normal-hearing recruits who [...]

Magnesium and Chronic Stress

Alterations in magnesium and oxidative status during chronic emotional stress. Abstract: Magnesium and oxidative status were investigated in young volunteers exposed to chronic stress (political intolerance, awareness of potential military attacks, permanent stand-by duty and reduced holidays more than 10 years) or subchronic stress consisting of everyday mortal danger in military actions lasting more than [...]

Magnesium and Anxiety

Magnesium Deficiency Induces Anxiety

A 2012 study in Neuropharmacology1 initially sounded promising, “Magnesium Deficiency Induces Anxiety and HPA Axis Dysregulation” but then the second part of the title, “Modulation by Therapeutic Drug Treatment” made no sense at all. This study proves that in an animal model magnesium deficiency induces anxiety and dysregulation of the way the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis works. [...]

Magnesium and Inflammatory Stress

Magnesium supplementation improves indicators of low magnesium status and inflammatory stress in adults older than 51 years with poor quality sleep. Abstract: Low magnesium status has been associated with numerous conditions characterized as having a chronic inflammatory stress component. Some animal findings indicate that a moderate magnesium deficiency, similar to which apparently commonly occurs in [...]

Magnesium Stress and Metabolic Syndrome

Magnesium, Stress and Metabolic Syndrome

Magnesium deficiency and metabolic syndrome: stress and inflammation may reflect calcium activation. Abstract: Magnesium (Mg) intake is inadequate in the western diet and metabolic syndrome is highly prevalent in populations around the world. Epidemiological studies suggest that high Mg intake may reduce the risk but the possibility of confounding factors exists, given the strong association [...]

Magnesium Protects Against Stress

Magnesium Protects Against Stress

Magnesium, stress and neuropsychiatric disorders. Abstract: Magnesium has a profound effect on neural excitability; the most characteristic signs and symptoms of Magnesium deficiency are produced by neural and neuromuscular hyperexcitability. These create a constellation of clinical findings termed tetany syndrome (TS). TS symptoms include muscle spasms, cramps and hyperarousal, hyperventilation and asthenia. Physical signs (Chvostek’s, [...]
