How important is magnesium to adrenal gland function?


Q: Hi Dr. Lam, How important is magnesium to adrenal gland function? Have you found with your patients that it can help with anxiety, fatigue and insomnia?

A: Magnesium is nature’s relaxant. It is excellent to calm the nerves and relax tense muscles. It may help one sleep as a result. Too much can lead to diarrhea, and that is often a welcome symptom for many in adrenal fatigue, which has low assimilation.
