No!: Fixed magnets (as opposed to powered electromagnets) produce weak magnetic fields. There is no compelling evidence that these types of magnets exert any physiological effect. They should have no effect on adrenal glands or potassium. Furthermore magnets do not "improve blood flow". The iron in your blood exists in a form that is totally non-magnetic (like rust).
