Magnesium – Crossing the Blood Brain Barrier

Every generation believes itself to be the most fraught with upheaval, fear, and anxiety.  And, with the events playing out in the world today, perhaps this generation does have a legitimate claim to title Most Fearful Generation. In the United States, fear and anxiety disorders are together the most common psychiatric problem, affecting roughly 20 percent of all Americans at a cost of more than $40 billion in lost productivity every year.
What percent of fear, anxiety and other behavioral issues are a result of magnesium and mineral deficiency have not been proven but we can certainly consider the potentials.
As Dr. Carolyn Dean has previously written: Byron Richards wrote that in a 2011 study, researchers found that Magnesium Improves Fear Conditions. Elevated brain levels of magnesium induce the production of BDNF, a brain rejuvenation compound. This leads to an increase in synaptic plasticity (malleability), enabling, for example, a learned fear response to actually change. Emotional experiences contribute to future behavior and are influenced by fear or anxiety. Intense painful experiences can lead to an overheated brain stem and limbic system. But, elevating brain levels of magnesium can help undo the bad programming and help create new brain response patterns not influenced by fear or anxiety. There is no need to get stuck in a rut. Fear and anxiety erect obstacles that interfere with the quality of life and willingness to do new things. Magnesium is a potent anti-inflammatory mineral, which eliminates brain irritation that can cause behavioral changes. Magnesium also helps make energy in the brain. The fact that magnesium is able to assist in the rewiring of past memories is good news for any person who is tired of listening to their old tapes play at the most inopportune times.
A highly absorbed form of magnesium like  ReMag will cross the blood brain barrier without the causing the laxative effect, a feature that is particularly helpful for folks who have gut issues. And, for many people ReMag is the “go-to” for anxiety, insomnia, and a whole host of other fear-based conditions.
