Acupuncture is very effective in addressing stress and anxiety. Adding Magnesium supplementation to the mix may work in further enhancing the benefit of acupuncture treatments. Besides proper absorption of calcium and structural bone development, magnesium is essential for numerous bio-chemical processes including synthesis of the antioxidant glutathione. It is essential for supporting normal nerve and muscle function, blood glucose metabolism, and blood pressure levels. Many experts feel that the body needs more than the RDA of 300-420 mg of magnesium.

Dry roasted almonds and cashews are a good source of dietary magnesium. For a lower fat alternative consider incorporating more spinach in your diet.
