Vitamins and anxiety

So I've been taking vitamin d due to a deficiency and also started taking magnesium and it's strange to explain but I feel like my head doesn't let me worry anymore? It's like things come and go but I can't focus on what I was really concerend/thinking about. I've just sat here worrying that I have some kind of Alzheimers...then I just thought wait a second this is what it should be like, not focusing on every single little thing that pops into your head! It's a strange new feeling that I've not felt for a while! Seems they're doing the trick for now!

Oh I'm happy for you. I too take Vit D for deficiency but not the magnesium.

Either it's the combination of both or the magnesium. Keep it up.

What type of magnesium are you taking? is it still working for you?


it actually did work yes. I don't take it any longer though as my anxiety seems to be (80% of the time) manageable. I was taking magnesium citrate...started on 100mg and then 150mg it can upset your tummy though so always start lower. I have to say though I think a mixture of iron, magnesium and vitamin d worked amazing for me. I asked my doctor to do a vitamin d test and I was incredibly low..which can cause anxiety and depression. so ask to have a bloody test to make sure your levels are okay
