The Magnesium Anxiety Connection
Research correlates magnesium deficiency with increased levels of anxiety (1). This is potentially due to reduced functionality in the hypothalamus; the part of the brain that controls the glands that regulate our stress response (2). To help combat this, I’ve created this juice to be high in magnesium.
Are Greens a Good Source of Magnesium?
Top of the list of foods high in magnesium are dark leafy greens, and I include two of the best in this recipe. Parsley is purported to have excellent antianxiety properties, which is supported by National Institute of Health findings (3). This humble herb contains nearly 10% of the RDA for magnesium in a cup. It’s also incredibly high in vitamin K (over 500% in 1/2 c) and vitamin C (over 50% in 1/2 c), both of which are also linked to reduced anxiety symptoms.
Spinach is also rich in vitamin C and magnesium, so aids in the fight against anxiety. Cucumbers add vitamin B to the anti-anxiety mix, as well as promote good gut health. Lemon juice contributes even more vitamin C. Combined, all these ingredients result in a powerful tonic against anxiety.
How Does Celery Help with Anxiety?
Celery contributes to the list of calming properties with vitamin K. One cup of celery juice has nearly 75% RDV of this key vitamin known to reduce symptoms of anxiety (4). It’s also known to reduce inflammation in the gut and provide prebiotic soluble fiber to aid in healthy gut microbe growth. Numerous studies link mental health to our gut biome, so a healthy gut may make for a calm, happy mind.
