Anxiety is a normal, yet admittedly unpleasant, part of life, that can impact anyone's mental wellness in different ways and times. Anxiety is generally agreed to be feelings of unease that vary in severity.

Unlike stress, which can come and go as the factors causing it subside, anxiety can remain whether or not the cause is known to the person experiencing it.

Different Types of Anxiety

There are many different types of anxiety that impact the lives of different people. The four most common types of anxiety are:

  • Generalized Anxiety
  • Social Anxiety
  • Phobias
  • Panic Disorders
Generalized anxiety affects people on an almost daily basis, while social anxiety impacts those in social situations. On the other hand, phobias affect people in a specific situation and panic disorders influence an individual to have frequent panic attacks.

Does Magnesium Address the Symptoms of Different Types of Anxiety?

A number of studies conducted over the years have suggested that taking magnesium for anxiety can work rather well. Research finds that individuals suffering from feelings of panic and fear can dramatically reduce these feelings when they increase their magnesium intake.

Magnesium has proven its efficacy at alleviating the symptoms of most types of anxiety when it's taken correctly.

This is because when taken as a supplement, magnesium helps to stabilize one's mood, while simultaneously providing feelings of calm and a sense of well-being.

It's these positive effects that can help to reduce a person's anxiety.

How Does Magnesium Relieve Anxiety Symptoms?

Magnesium chloride acts as a muscle relaxer, which can help a lot with the many symptoms of anxiety. Due to the fact that it acts as a nervous system relaxant, magnesium is often cited as being an important mineral to assist with fear, restlessness, and worry.

Magnesium affects the hypothalamus which helps regulate glands that control stress and anxiety.

Because its effect on these glands, it's fair to say that magnesium supplements can help to dramatically diminish anxiety symptoms.

How Often Should Someone Take Magnesium to Help With Anxiety?

Magnesium should be taken once a day, if possible, around bed time. Taking magnesium before you go to sleep helps you calm your mind and nervous system as well as get restful sleep. Being well-rested can help reduce the stress you feel throughout the day.

While magnesium hasn't been proven to be able to stop panic attacks as they occur, it has been proven to greatly reduce the likelihood of anxiety attacks happening in the first place.

    Avi: Hello, thank you for your question! Any form of magnesium could help, but we specifically recommend magnesium chloride because it’s the most easily absorbable. We hope this helps! Please let us know if you have additional questions or concerns.

    Is it specifically Magnesium Chloride, or does it really just need to be magnesium? Because you see, when one needs iron, what they need is just the metal “iron”, and sucking on the pure metal will give them what they need as well. But when one needs the metal called “sodium” for example, they must not eat pure sodium, for that will catch fire in their stomach! So what they really meant to say, was not that they need sodium “metal”, but that they need the “salt” called: sodium chloride, right? So my question to you, is, do we need magnesium itself, i.e. the metal, and I can suck on some magnesium ribbon just like I can suck on iron? Or is it more like the sodium thingy, where what we actually need is not magnesium metal, but the salt called: magnesium chloride?
    (Since it’s not very reactive at all, I’m guessing we just need the metal, but you tell me.)
