The Anti-Stress Mineral
This important article outlines the benefits of adding magnesium to improve stress management and address many of the symptoms common in sufferers of PTSD, including anxiety, depression, insomnia and cognitive issues.

For the first time in years I found calm and rest… and clarity, making remission possible as long as I manage my stress levels as well.

There are many unprocessed foods that are good sources for magnesium and other minerals that are needed to support parasympathetic nervous system function, such as those listed here.
