And now we go to veggies – Swiss chard! This is one of the leafy greens that are super rich in magnesium. And why does the body need Magnesium? Well, the simple explanation to that is when your body lacks Magnesium because your “stress” has messed it all up, you are prone to getting irritated easily, anxious even at the smallest of things and agitated most of the time. This is a sign of stress and lack of Magnesium.
Eating Swiss chard can help with that provided you only eat the leafy part. Throw away the stalk. It provides 150 mg of Magnesium (one cup serving – cooked) and that can alleviate anxiety while regulating your body’s cortisol levels which is for stress management.
