> Has anyone had success in treating anxiety symptoms with Magnesium supplementation or is this concept fools gold? I've read a little bit about Magnesium Deficiency and how it can effect cognitive issues and other psychiatric issues like anxiety, depression, etc. But I don't know whether to take it seriously or not.
> It sounds like a load of BS but I wouldn't be opposed to starting a daily supplement if anyone else has had some form of success with it, even if it was marginal - I'll take all the help I can get considering this is relatively inexpensive to do on your own without prescription.

I've used magnesium in the past for sleep and relaxation with some success (and I know others who swear by it). I certainly don't think it can hurt. I feel the best supplements for anxiety/depression are those that reduce inflammation- particularly high quality fish oil (krill is great for brain health), curcumin (the active compound in turmeric), and probiotics. I do think, though, that the ability of these supplements to work depends on how well they are absorbed. I'm having a hard time absorbing anything right now because my gut is in very poor health. But there are many studies that connect those three things (especially curcumin) to the relief of anxiety/depression. At least one study found curcumin to be as effective as Prozac. I've also had some success with Vitamin D in the past. Good luck to you!
