Magnesium for Neurological /Neuromuscular conditions

Mg calms irritated and over-excited nerves

When Mg levels are low, nerves lose control over muscle activity, respiration and mental processes:

Mg Calms Nerves

The neurological effects are:

✔ Reducing electrical excitation

✔ Blocking release of acetylcholine

✔ Blocking N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) glutamate receptors - an excitatory neurotransmitter of the central nervous system.

A few of the Neurological /Neuromuscular conditions

improved by Mg supplementation

Sleep disorders/Insomnia

Promotes good sleep;

The 'shakes' in alcoholism

Mg levels are usually low in alcoholics

Parkinson's disease

Prevents shaking, eases rigidity

Preeclampsia

Pregnant women may develop convulsions, nausea, dizziness and headaches. Treated with magnesium infusions in hospitals

Headaches /migraines

Suicide

The lower magnesium content in soil and water in a given region, the higher are the rates of suicides

Epileptic Seizures

Marked by abnormally low magnesium levels in the blood, spinal fluid and brain, causing hyperexcitability in regions of the brain. There are many reported causes of epilepsy greatly improving or disappearing with magnesium supplementation. In a trial with 30 epileptics 450 mg of magnesium supplied daily successfully controlled seizures. Another study found that the lower the magnesium blood levels the more severe was the epilepsy. In most cases magnesium works best in combination with vitamin B6 and zinc. In sufficient concentrations, Magnesium inhibits convulsions by limiting or slowing the spread of the electric discharge from an isolated group of brain cells to the rest of the brain. Animal studies show that even the initial burst of firing nerve cells that starts an epileptic attack can be suppressed with magnesium

Pain

Mg shown to reduce pain by blocking NMDA receptors within CNS. NMDA receptors are involved with pain sensitivity and excitory neurotransmitter activities

SIDS

CFS

Psychiatric disorders / Age-related dementia

Burstitis

Chronic or acute inflammation of fluid-filled sac (bursa) that lies between a tendon and bone near joints, where tendons or muscles pass over bony projections to assist movement and reduce friction between moving parts. Bursa also lies between a tendon and skin. Burstitis can be caused by chronic overuse, trauma, RA, gout, infection, commonly occurring in the shoulder, knee, elbow, and hip. Also can affect the Achilles tendon and the foot.

Mg can free muscles that have become tight and knotted.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Fibromyalgia

Characterized by widespread pain in joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. Common symptoms include:

Fatigue

Morning stiffness

Sleep problems

Headaches

Numbness in hands and feet

Depression

Anxiety

Mg stops muscle spasms, which are primarily responsible for pain.

Osteoporosis

Scoliosis

Sciatica

Pain that radiates from the lower back into the buttocks and down the back of one or both legs caused by the irritation of the sciatic nerves. Mg stops muscle spasms, which are primarily responsible for pain.

Degenerative Joint Disease / Osteoarthritis
