(NaturalNews) Anxiety can affect our lives dramatically. In a time when our society is more stressed than perhaps ever before, feelings of anxiety have become an everyday occurrence in many people`s lives. Anxiety disorders are also becoming evermore prevalent. Because of this, natural anxiety remedies are more relevant than ever. Magnesium, a vital mineral nutrient, is perhaps one of the most important natural anxiety remedies because of its effectiveness, record of safe use, availability and value.

Anxiety and Your Health

Anxiety impairs concentration and causes sleeplessness; it increases the risk for illness, chronic back problems, and even fatal accidents. Truly, anxiety can damage you mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Although there are numerous anxiety medications in the market today, these medications can only relieve some of the symptoms of anxiety and are not a long-term solution. Anxiety medications come with a long list of side effects and safety concerns, not the least of which is the risk of drug dependence.

Side effects of anti-anxiety medications include low libido, constipation, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, fatigue, trouble concentrating and many more. We should not have to live with these terrible side effects, nor should we be subjected to being overwhelmed by anxious feelings. Fortunately, magnesium offers a safe and effective solution for anxiety, without the side effects.

Magnesium Saves the Day

A magnesium deficiency can cause or worsen symptoms of anxiety. Magnesium naturally calms the nervous system and the muscles; whereas, a deficiency can result in a tense body and an anxious mind.

Eating foods that are rich in magnesium is an important step in correcting a magnesium deficiency naturally. Magnesium can be found most abundantly in coconut water, kelp, cashews, buckwheat, molasses, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, cocoa powder and rice bran.

Magnesium Supplementation

Those with anxiety will often benefit from magnesium supplementation. Start with 200 mg per day and work your way up to the most effective dose. Too much magnesium may cause loose stools. If this occurs, either cut back on your dose or divide it into smaller doses throughout the day. Most people find that 400-800 mg taken in divided doses will ease their anxiety symptoms considerably.

Magnesium citrate, magnesium glycinate and magnesium chloride are among the most absorbable forms of magnesium. Magnesium oil and epsom salts can also be used externally to boost magnesium levels.
