Magnesium for the Brain
Magnesium is an essential cofactor for more than 300 enzymes involved in biosynthesis processes and energy metabolism. It plays an important role in many of the brain's functions. Only recently, a unique compound called MagteinTM was discovered by a group of scientists from MIT, including a Nobel Prize laureate.
Magnesium has been implicated in many of the brain functions. However, most magnesium compounds have low brain bioavailability and severe gastrointestinal side effects. MagteinTM is the only magnesium compound that has been shown to effectively raise the brain's magnesium levels, which leads to enhanced learning abilities, improved working memory, and better short- and long-term memory in both young and aged animals. In four published preclinical studies, MagteinTM was found to improve memory, alleviate anxiety and help prevent and reverse the symptoms of Alzheimer's.
MagteinTM currently has several published studies in highly regarded journals reporting its mechanism of action and benefits to cognitive function. In addition, consumers of MagteinTM report good results and ones that make a difference. Magtein products are widely available from several branded manufacturers on the Internet, in natural food stores and national health retailers. MagteinTM has enjoyed a robust following among the health media, bloggers and industry advocates.
Dr. Guosong Liu, the principal investigator behind Magtein ™ describes the mechanism of action and the ingredient’s benefits.
An estimated 13 million adults in the US suffer from cognitive issues and brain health dysfunction.
Twenty percent of people aged 55 and older could be affected.
US consumers aged 65 years or older will double in the next 25 years.
In 2030 ~20 percent of the U.S. population will be older.
Approximately 50 percent of the U.S. population is deficient in magnesium.
The RDA for magnesium is 350-400 milligrams per day.
Magnesium can be found in leafy greens, healthy grains and beans.
