Magnesium, Aging, and the Biochemistry of the Brain

This past week Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote a blog titled: Magnesium the Anti-Aging Miracle and once you read the article I think you’ll agree with me:  your brain with magnesium and without magnesium behaves as two completely different organs and has significant implications for health, longevity and cognitive function.

In addition to the studies and research Dr. Dean provides in her article we also site the 2011 the University of Adelaide Press comprehensive study titled Magnesium and the Central Nervous System.  In the study the editors provide comprehensive documentation about the role of magnesium in a normal brain, in neurological diseases such as learning and memory, headache and migraine, pain, cerebral ischemia, clinical stroke, and Parkinson’s as well as magnesium in psychiatric diseases such as Alzheimer’s, stress, neuroses, autism, depression and addiction. The opening statement of the booklet provides a thesis for all the studies included:

Our understanding of the physiology and biochemistry of the brain has improved dramatically in the last two decades. In particular, the critical role of cations, including magnesium, has become evident, even if incompletely understood at a mechanistic level.

The exact role and regulation of magnesium, in particular, remains elusive, largely because intracellular levels are so difficult to routinely quantify. Nonetheless, the important of magnesium to normal central nervous system activity is self-evident given the complicated homeostatic mechanisms that maintain the concentration of this cation within strict limits essential for normal physiology and metabolism.

There is also considerable accumulating evidence to suggest alternations to some brain function in both normal and pathological conditions may be lined to alterations in local magnesium concentration [saturation].

The good news is in most every case these symptoms can improve or prevent with the appropriate magnesium saturation or magnesium sufficiency. In the case of those who are magnesium deficient [about 80% of the people you know] Dr. Dean’s ReMag Magnesium Solution provides a 60,000 ppm concentration of 99.99% pure elemental magnesium designed to slip right into the mineral channels of your cells and saturate your entire body with magnesium delight!

Tonight on the show Dr. Dean reviews this as well as many other topics on the show.
