26Y, 185/75 male here
Some 5 years ago I developed some anxiety related symptoms - such as trouble concentrating, bad memory, GI issues, heart rate issues, and some trouble sleeping as well (unrefreshing sleep in combo with early awakening).
While Im positive that one of the reasons for all this is anxiety, I am also sure that it is caused by some sort of deficiency.
One of the reasons I am suspecting is lack of magnesium in my system, that has been depleted due to stress and anxiety.
So I have tried different forms of magnesium afterwards - citrate, threonate, glycinate etc.
And while all of them give me some positive benefits around 2 weeks after using (more energy, less stress, better mental clarity) I have one really bad side effect due to which I am always stopping taking it - that is insomnia (feeling wired during night).
I am always taking magnesium during breakfast and have tried lowering the dose - but the problem always remains the same.
Have you guys had something similar? If yes, did you find some workaround?
Maybe Im missing some other nutrient that is needed for absorption? None of other crucial nutrients have been low on my bloodwork.
Will highly appreciate your response.
