Has anyone ever linked their anxiety to vitamin or mineral deficiency? I am prone to having low iron levels and have vitamin D deficiency. I usually take a multi-vitamin plus vitamin D but I had stopped over the holidays. Then my anxiety increased tremendously!!! To the point that I had 2-3 anxiety attacks this past Saturday. I was doing research about anxiety and vitamin/mineral deficiency and it stated that anxiety can get worse when your supply of these nutrients run low. So I began taking my multivitamin and I also added magnesium, calcium, and zinc supplements. Its been 3 days and I feel AMAZING! Im drinking more camomile tea as well. What do you think???

I think of you check on magnesium and Vit-D you will find that both are important to replicate certain hormones that will decrease stress and anxiety.
If have felt it myself. When I’m low on magnesium, I’m not only getting muscle cramps but also heightened anxiety and problems with sleeping.

I didn't know that Rinka. Im not saying that Im not out of the woods or anything but this whole week I felt great all because I started taking multivitamins, vitamin D, and the magnesium/zinc/calcium supplement. I don't get the butterflies often and I think clearer. I have more energy too.
