Cogni-Zone: Magnesium Support for Cognitive Health
Cogni-Zone from Progressive Laboratories provides a highly bio-available kind of magnesium, Magtein magnesium-L-threonate, to help support learning and memory, as well as all brain-related functions.
In your brain, memory involves encoding, storing and retrieving information. The brain areas that play a part in memory include the hippocampus, amygdala, cerebellum, cerebral cortex and striatum. Damage to any of these areas can have a profound effect on memory. However, raising the level of magnesium in the body may maintain memory, even with age.
Memory Loss and Aging
Magnesium combines with calcium to manage ion channels that open in response to nerve impulses, which in turn stimulate the release of neurotransmitters (chemicals nerve cells use to communicate with one another). The most important of these channels is known as the "NMDA receptors," or protein channels that help strengthen the connection between nerve cells. Elevating magnesium levels may support the density of these receptors.
NMDA receptors also play a significant role in promoting neural plasticity, which is the ability of the connections between two neurons to change in strength. Plasticity enables your brain to change as you learn and memorize. When you remember something, the connections between brain cells, or synapses, physically change. However, as we age, the synapses become less plastic, leading to forgetfulness. Magnesium may play a role in a number of synapses and enhance brain plasticity.
