Feeling a little forgetful lately or not as bright as you used to be? At times it can be normal to struggle with the occasional memory issues when we do not get enough sleep or have experienced a heavy amount of stress. However, if you are experiencing brain fog or memory issues regularly due to aging or health, you may be wondering, “What can be done to improve brain health? We want to shed some light on magnesium and how it can contribute to improving brain health. After all, who does not want to be as sharp as a tack when it comes to brain health?
Magnesium is one of the most essential minerals in the body and is used in every cell activity from the gut to the brain. It should be easy to get magnesium through our foods like beans, nuts, some fruit and dark leafy vegetables. However, our food is not as nutrient rich as it used to be due to soil depletion, GMO’s, and pesticides. Not having enough magnesium in our body can have an adverse impact not only on our overall health but in our brain health too. Here are a few magnesium deficiencies symptoms that affect our brain function: insomnia, restlessness, hyperactivity, and anxiety, depression, migraine headaches.
Studies show that magnesium can help improve memory and learning in those who are young and older. Magnesium boosts brain support, function, and health.
