If your body could tell you what it wants, heres what it would say: I want magnesium.
And why does your body love magnesium?
Boosting your brain
A recent laboratory study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US reveals that an adequate amount of magnesium is necessary to maintain the plasticity of synapses – the connectors that move information from neuron to neuron in the brain.
In this case, plasticity refers to the ability to change. When synapses are flexible to change, learning and memory are enhanced.
The study hasn’t been published yet, so details about the exact methodology will have to wait. But according to a report released by the MIT News Office, the researchers believe their results confirm that cognitive function is stunted when magnesium is deficient, but clearly improved when magnesium intake is abundant.
Other conditions that have been associated with a magnesium deficiency include depression, anxiety and attention deficit disorder.
