I’ve been using myself to field test taking my Magnesium Citrate daily for anxiety relief.
I first wrote about this topic almost a month ago– this is the original post: Magnesium for Anxiety & Stress Relief. I wanted to give you an update and let you know my results…
I have been taking 2 Magnesium Citrate capsules per day- one in the morning and one at at night. Each pill is 200mg.
Nothing else has changed about my life in the past month- no medication changes, no big crises per se. I have been going about business as usual and trying to discern whether or not I can feel anything appreciable that I could attribute to my new Magnesium regimen.
And I can say I definitely do feel better!
For one thing, my night time palpitations are gone. I have had these for years- they are scary and also annoying as hell. My doctor never said much about them since my heart is healthy. And I did get some relief from them by starting a gluten free diet. But after a few months, the palpitations came back with a vengeance. I am telling you they are gone. I want to pinch myself because I really almost don’t believe it.
Summer is a high anxiety time for me and I have bent your ear about it numerous times here on PanicFreeMe. With the heat, the kids home, being around the neighbors, I am usually a ball of nerves suffering in the house and wishing the summer months away.
This year it is different. And again I stress that everything in my life is business as usual. The only thing that is different is that I am now taking Magnesium.
I really think it did something and normalized some of that low level anxiety I always have in the summer.
So that is my experience. Take it with a grain of salt if you like but I am so happy to have found a link between low magnesium and anxiety. And even better, now I am doing something about it. I do feel very good indeed!
If you like to use natural anti anxiety supplements, remedies, or vitamins, I suggest you to look into taking Magnesium Citrate. Since 80% of women in the US are magnesium deficient and don’t even know it- odds are, you could definitely benefit and get some good anxiety relief!
I wish you peace,
