In brief: Unlikely
Calcium as a mineral causes an increase in muscle tone and in excess can contribute to muscle spasm, headaches, and heartburn.
Not a recipe for relaxation.

In brief: Calcium
Calcium & magnesium have been shown to benefit some, not all, people with chronic anxiety.
Consult your primary care doc. First.
