Maga Therapy Wonders….Can Diet Reduce Muscle Tension? Is it possible our diet can help reduce muscle tension?
Indeed it can! The secret is Magnesium
A Magnesium deficiency can leave you feeling anxious, stressed as well as affecting muscles (tension) try peanuts which are a great source of Magnesium.
On a personal note I have found that whenever I feel stressed cashews and pistachios seem to make me feel calmer.
Great Sources of Magnesium are beans, nuts and vegetables.
Caffeine can cause a magnesium loss. Foods with caffeine include coffee, tea, some energy drinks and bars, and some types of fizzy drinks.
Soy milk is high in phytoestrogens as well as magnesium, however some suggest soy is unhealthy to eat in large quantities because it may raise oestrogen levels and suggest it may cause thyroid problems.
