Magnesium and the Mind
Mental health is a growing business. Many people suffer from depression, moodiness, memory impairment, cognitive dysfunctions, and other mind or mental imbalances. Many studies have been conducted showing a link between magnesium deficiencies and cognitive function, especially for children and the elderly. Other research clearly demonstrates the relationship of magnesium and overall brain health, chemical functions, and hormone production.
It’s a Fact: some of the cognitive issues more of the population faces every day
- Brain Fog
- Depression (or loss of desire)
- Memory Loss
- Serotonin Deficiencies
"The two most basic requirements for the normal operation of our brain are a sufficient energy supply and an optimal presence of biochemicals involved in transmitting messages. Magnesium is critical in both the production of energy and neurotransmitters, not to mention the integrity of the blood brain barrier. It is bedrock science that connects magnesium to neurological disorders."
According to Paul Mason, magnesium deficiency causes a serotonin deficiency with possible reluctant aberrant behaviors, including depression, suicide or irrational violence. “*
