How does magnesium lower stress?

Jacob Teitelbaum
Integrative Medicine
Magnesium has been called the “anti-stress mineral” because it relaxes muscles, improves sleep, and relieves tension. Low magnesium levels can trigger hyperventilation, panic attacks, and even seizures. These attacks can be relieved with magnesium therapy.

It’s important to choose the right kind of magnesium. Magnesium oxide and hydroxide are poorly absorbed, but many nutritional supplement manufacturers use this form because it is inexpensive. Choose absorbable forms, such as magnesium citrate, malate, or glycinate.
