Hello thanks for asking from HCM for your health related doubts.

Magnesium is thought to aid in anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue etc psychological disorders. Commonly magnesium is used in Magnesium Oxide, Magnesium Glycinate forms. Normal doses are about 400-800 mg per day. The supplement should be taken under proper supervision and with plenty of water. If taken with Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxin) then this gives best results.

Thanks, Hope this helps you. Please don't hesitate to ask again for more doubts.
