Brief Summary:
This study aims to determine how a 6-week magnesium supplementation with 400 mg magnesium from magnesium citrate/magnesium oxide affects stress parameters in students in exam preparation.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Stress Physiology Dietary Supplement: Magnesium Dietary Supplement: Placebo Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The examinations are carried out in 70 students in exam preparation (6 weeks before exam). The target parameters are determined in blood and 24h-urine. Blood sampling takes place at confinement, after 3 weeks and at the end of the study (week 6). In addition, heart rate variability is determined.
