Magnesium: The mind mineral
White paper by James Greenblatt, M.D. and Kelly Heim, Ph.D.
Magnesium is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It ranks fourth as the most abundant mineral in the body, and second to potassium, is the most prevalent intracellular mineral. Its roles in brain function are diverse—it is essential for the neurotransmission that orchestrates mood, cognition, memory, sleep, relaxation and overall emotional well-being.
