If you find yourself irritable, stressed or downright depressed, this critical mineral may help. Studies suggest adequate magnesium intake can calm stress, improve mood and enhance sleep.

The study put together the first-ever viral population database detailing the flora of the human digestive system, identifying over 33,000 unique viral populations living in the gut, titled the Gut Virome Database. (Don’t be alarmed – most of these viruses don’t cause disease.) Compiling this data has established a robust starting point to see what the virus biome looks like in humans, scientists say. Olivier Zabolicky, a co-author of the study and a postdoctoral researcher in microbiology, says, “If we can characterize the viruses that are keeping us healthy, we might be able to harness that information to design future therapeutics for…
