Experiencing anxiety is more than just feeling butterflies in your stomach. Anxiety can have a direct impact on your overall health, from causing digestion complications to worsening symptoms of chronic diseases. You’re not alone.

Stress and common nutrient deficiencies could be contributing to this problem. Today we present a magnificent remedy as a solution and it consists of a homemade recipe for magnesium gummies for anxiety and this series of problems that, as a supplement, are exceptional.

Magnesium: The great stress buster

The recommended daily intake of magnesium for adults is between 320 and 420 mg. Whole grains used to be an important dietary source of magnesium, but the switch to refined flours in baked goods has largely contributed to a magnesium deficiency across the country.

Since your body stores magnesium primarily in your bones (and some cells), a blood sample is not a reliable way to assess whether your magnesium levels are healthy.

Instead, healthcare professionals rely on diagnosing a magnesium deficiency through the elimination process and considering your symptoms. Symptoms of deficiency include:

  • Muscle cramps
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fatigue
  • Muscular weakness
  • Hypertension
  • Asthma
  • Arrhythmia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

A 2017 scientific review found that there is much evidence that magnesium may be beneficial against anxiety . About half of the studies that were examined pointed to magnesium as a useful treatment for general anxiety, PMS, and even hypertension.

The only anxiety-related condition that did not appear to have been counteracted by magnesium was postpartum anxiety.

Other benefits of magnesium

Magnesium is essential for the normal function of hundreds of enzymes in your body, and is involved in multiple processes such as metabolism, nerve health, and maintenance of tissues and muscles.

Therefore, reversing a magnesium deficiency through dietary habits or supplements has many benefits. In addition to helping calm anxiety, magnesium can:

  • Promote bone health
  • Help prevent kidney stones
  • Reduce the risk of diabetes
  • Help prevent clogged arteries
  • Help lower blood pressure
  • Prevent migraines
  • Relieve symptoms of PMS
  • Improve sleep quality

Recipe for magnesium gummies for anxiety and insomnia

Try this simple home remedy to make a convenient way to supplement your magnesium intake and help ease anxiety symptoms .

Ingredients:

  • 5 tablespoons magnesium citrate
  • 3 tablespoons of organic gelatin powder
  • 1 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey or organic maple syrup
  • a pinch of salt
  • Instructions:

1. Slowly add the magnesium citrate to the lemon juice in a small bowl, stirring constantly.

2. Once mixed, pour into a saucepan and add the gelatin.

3. Heat over medium heat until the gelatin dissolves.

4. Mix salt and honey. Continue heating until the mixture is reduced to about 3/4 cup.

5. Pour the mixture into small baking sheets (silicone works best) and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and enjoy up to 5 gummies per day.

Depending on the size of the baking pan, this recipe should make about 35 gummies, each with around 70 mg of elemental magnesium.

Potential side effects

As with any natural remedy, there can be potential side effects. Ingesting large amounts of supplemental magnesium can have a laxative effect in most people. Make sure you don’t have more than 5 gummies in a day. It is recommended to start with 1 to 2 per day and work your way up to 5.

Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified healthcare provider with any questions regarding your current medical condition and / or medication.
