Magnesium is a basic mineral known for its multiple effects in the body. One of the most important roles of magnesium is to maintain the health of the nervous system. In particular, it ensures that the transmission of signals from the nerves to the muscles functions smoothly (1). Magnesium deficiency is common in the general population, and symptoms range from headaches to anxiety and irritability, which overlaps with stress symptoms (2,3). Therefore, it is important to ensure adequate levels of this mineral in your body.
