magnesium anti-stress properties

Posted by rjlockhart37 on April 19, 2022, at 12:04:25

i found this article, i've very much noticed this, under high stress and while on sleep deprivation, it acutally reduces stress and like puts a fire out in the nerves. This happens with me only at high doses, such as 2000mg. If you take more than 2000mg you will have gastro side effects.

this is the link: its a long article but magnesium is very much a drug of choice during high stress situations

1000-2000mg's is a high dose for magesium but it's the only dose that i noticed the anti-stress over active nerves, standard doses don't seem to work with me. I have to take high doses, then i notice the stress reduce in the nerves. I'm not saying take 2000mg because doses very but it's good to know, this supplement's antianxiety-stress properties (at high doses)

Yes, couldn't agree more!! I used to not have such a great effect with Magnesium, but a few times now, it's been..just...WOW!! I was preparing for a very, very high stress job interview, as a clinical addictions and mental health supervisor, and it helped me retain TONS of very complex information. Still gotta find out if I got the job, but regardless, it gave me confidence I did not realize I had. I applied tons of textbook theory to real life situations...so...best to say, I am praying..lol.

Not to spoil the Mg party, but... I used to drink a lot of magnesium because I liked the taste of the effervescent tablets. Once I drank too much and I felt weird. Maybe my taste became odd, I don't remember. I then drank some calcium (not as tasty) and I felt better. Maybe it balanced things out again.

With some of these (chemical) elements you can upset your electrolyte balance, and if the imbalance is severe enough, it could result in death.

It may be possible to use blood tests to see which electrolytes you are low (or high) on.

Well, Mg has been on-off for me. Some days, it works good, others, it sucks, and I do also turn to Calcium. I will have to get levels checked in my next blood exam.

Jay, yes magnesium works very well at higher doses, but don't go over 2000mg, you will have gastro side effects, and some unpleasantness. Keep it down around 2500-2000mg, because above that yes produces side effects. Glad it's working!!

I'm pretty sure it helps (not cures!), especially physical reactions to stress and fatigue. Hugh, here, suggested magnesium threonate, and I like it.

Usually, I take 2 grams a day without gastric upset, at least not now. In the beginning, I had an off day or two.
