Mind and Memory

Our world is a busy one and the more advanced our technology becomes to “save us time” the opposite seems to be happening. With all this busyness it can be hard to “power down” our brains, making restful sleep but a dream!

Because even marginal magnesium deficiency can cause muscle spasms, irregular heartbeat, and hyper-excitability, it is quite easy for low magnesium levels to set off insomnia. Much as magnesium reduces nerve conduction in the muscles, it can also slow down neuronal activities in the brain. By reducing the electrical conduction between brain cells, magnesium reduces the “noise” signals that cause anxiety and sleeplessness. Instead, it induces calm and promotes sedation.

Magnesium deficiency has been attributed to reduced neural function and increased muscular tension and stress. It has been accepted in modern and eclectic medical philosophy that muscular tension and ailment inhibits mental clarity, memory, and focus. Memory is the storage and retrieval of information. Memories are essential for learning and incorporating our experiences into behavior and are part and parcel of our consciousness. Stored somewhere in the three pounds of wrinkled brain are zip codes, the face of your grandmother, and the taste of yesterday’s lunch. Your memories truly reflect your lifetime.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Tsinghua University in Beijing researchers found that increasing brain magnesium using a newly developed compound, magnesium-L-threonate (MgT), improves learning abilities, working memory, and short-term and long-term memory because [magnesium] is an essential ion for normal cellular functions and body health, many physiological functions are impaired with the reduction of body [magnesium].
