Smile magnesium/calcium for anxiety

I am in alcohol recovery and have recently given up smoking as well. (madness!) I just wanted to let others know my experience incase it is helpful - I have started taking a magnesium/calcium supplement for osteoporosis prevention and amazingly almost straightaway my anxiety has disappeared. The desire to have a drink or cigarette to calm the jittery feelings has completely gone.
I am a particularly sensitive person which may explain why the effect has been so considerable but for those of you with jittery anxiety it might be worth a go.

Re: magnesium/calcium for anxiety

It is funny because the first thing I ever heard when I first started to get clean was " most addicts are extremely over sensitive people", somewhere along the line we took that as a negative however, having been clean for sometime it has made me an incredible empathizer, which has been a great advantage at work. I appreciate the information and I am going to check into that. I work with a number of people that might find that helpful. Having had a medical background it makes sense to me, I recently read a study about Dr's advising patients with Asthma to take large doses of magnesium, as they feel it calms them during an attack which enables them to reach normal breathing faster.
