Magnesium and GABA Receptors in the Brain
Magnesium plays an important role in a multitude of biochemical reactions in the body, including the brain. Neurological functions of magnesium include cellular energy product, regulating neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine and gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA), regulating ion gradients, and neuronal excitability.
Dysregulation of these systems plays an important role in the etiology of both depression and anxiety.
Magnesium has been shown to modulate GABA activity in the brain. Magnesium ions can occupy GABA receptors acting as GABA receptor agonists to help facilitate GABA neurotransmission. GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain that plays a role in motor control, vision, and anxiety.
Recommendation: Take one serving daily or as directed by your health care practitioner. Mix two teaspoons in water or juice and stir well. This powder dissolves best in warm water.
