I visited some anxiety forums, and a lot of people blame anxiety on deficiency in zinc. If your nails have white spots on them and vertical lines then you got a zinc deficiency.
I started to take 50mgs of Zinc once a day with food. They also talk about iron and magnesium as a required minerals for the relaxed state of mind.

they say if you have too much copper relative to zinc in your blood and brain, you are prone to depression which is typified by high anxiety states and being wired. I've taken zinc 50 mg supplements and they calmed me down a little bit but didn't do anything else so I quit. Zinc is good at getting copper out of the bloodstream because it competes for it. Calcium and magnesium are important, too.
