Magnesium and your Brain

Magnesium and the Brain

Magnesium is a vital mineral for our overall health, and now a Chinese study has discovered that higher magnesium levels dramatically improve brain health. Guosong Liu, Director of the Center for Learning and Memory at Tsinghua University in Beijing, stated “Elevating brain magnesium content via increasing magnesium intake can be a useful new strategy to enhance cognitive abilities.”

The Chinese study showed magnesium’s effect on the brain cell’s synaptic plasticity: “… a key feature of nerve architecture that enables your brain to tolerate stress, recover from trauma, and make actual changes. Synaptic plasticity is based on having well-nourished and properly energized brain cells – contrasted to inflamed brain cells that have become damaged and ‘stuck in their ways’.”

Due to topsoil depletion from incorrect farming practices, most of us are magnesium-deficient. As we get older, less magnesium is present in our cells. Yet it takes around twice the amount of magnesium recommended for body health to enhance and preserve the brain’s optimum cognitive and memory functions.

Up to 1000 mg per day is recommended for optimum brain health.

Magnesium is critically involved with over 300 cellular metabolic functions. Magnesium has been called the “Lamp of Life”, as it is the major constituent for producing chlorophyll in plant life. Without that, plants could not interact with the sun and survive.

Obviously, organic green vegetables (such as wheatgrass) should be heavily consumed for a substantial magnesium intake. (Organic vegetables can have up to ten times more magnesium than non-organic.)

Commercial table salt and white processed sugar, as well as foods that contain white bleached flour, should be avoided. These items leach magnesium out of your body.

You can also supplement magnesium transdermally. If you overdo magnesium supplementation, though, you’ll notice quickly. Like Vitamin C, excessive magnesium causes diarrhea.
