Can magnesium supplements treat anxiety?

Can magnesium supplements treat anxiety? Topic: Can magnesium supplements treat anxiety?

Question: I heard they are effective, have any of you tried it? I tried many various prescription drugs in the past. They usually didn't help and gave me side effects that just made the anxiety worse. I am looking for a natural remedy to relieve anxiety. So far I found that exercise, books, time with friends, and movies/shows help a lot to distract me and make me feel good. However, when I can't distract myself with something, I feel anxiety. I am looking for a good natural supplement. I don't get panic attacks often, but I almost always feel the effects of anxiety.

A lot of the herbal teas, like, Chamomile, Peppermint and Jasmine help to calm and soothe (Jasmine is particularly helpful with aiding and relieving stress)...I'd stay away from anything with caffeine or added sugar, that will do nothing but reek havoc on your poor system. Using scented bath oils, like Jasmine, Lavender, Chamomile and Orange also soothe and comfort. If you can get the herbs and vitamins from your every day food and drink, like adding more omega 3 fatty acid (helps in reducing anxiety and jitters) by eating more fish (which also helps ward off the blues), taking flax oil or using flax seed in your food, that would be helpful too. Vitamins and supplements are good, I would check all of them out before first using them (in pill form)...the FDA doesn't regulate the usage of them, so there's no real warning labels on the bottles (ie for certain medical conditions and drug interactions)...if you could afford it, try looking up a local Alternative Medicine Doctor or Nurse Practitioner...they have a lot of pharmaceutical grade supplements and vitamins you can buy direct and can really recommend them to you, work with you about drug interactions, recommended dosages, etc. Or if you have a local Health Market you could always ask around too...(but a lot of people that work in there don't have to have formal training, stick with someone you know and trust if you go that route! Hope this helps!

It can help a great deal with the anxiety. Like anything else it takes time and taking it regularly. Too many people try something and give up in a week. Good Luck!

Magnesium citrate is used to clean out the bowel/colon in preparation for a barium examination and x rays of the colon. We give instructions to take the whole bottle. I think it will work, but if it does not work well enough, we tell our patients to use a fleet enema in the early morning to finish the preparation to clear out the colon completly and if all works, you actually feel lighter.
