Brain Calm Magnesium
The Importance of Magnesium:
Magnesium is present in all cells of the body and is involved in over 300 enzymatic processes, including energy production. Magnesium is essential for maintaining normal bone density, normal cardiac rhythmicity, normal pulmonary function, and normal blood glucose regulation.
Magnesium is one of the most common world-wide deficiencies and it plays a role in most of the common health struggles people face every day. Magnesium is a basic element of life much like water and air. We need a lot of magnesium, roughly 1000 mgs/day for a healthy active individual to keep up with the demands of the body. Magnesium is to the body like oil is to a car’s engine and if we are deficient problems will arise.
Magnesium and Detoxification:
Without sufficient magnesium the body struggles to make and utilize protein and enzymes. It is also unable to properly methylate and detoxify and/or process and utilize anti-oxidants like vitamin C and E.
Magnesium is extremely critical for proper detoxification processes. As our world has gotten increasingly more toxic, our need for magnesium has increased.
Introducing Brain Calm Magnesium:
We developed Brain Calm Magnesium in order to provide the best form of magnesium to improve brain function and neuronal health. This product helps you to focus, concentrate and perform at a significantly higher level. In addition, it is fantastic for reducing anxiety, while improving mood, memory and sleep.
Brain Calm Magnesium features key Albion forms of Magnesium (malate, lysinate & glycinate chelate) as well as magnesium L-threonate the only form of magnesium proven in animal studies to cross the blood-brain barrier. Boosting the brain’s magnesium level is vital to healthy cognition, which includes long- and short-term memory, learning, stress management and sleep.
Because many forms of magnesium have low bioavailability, we carefully selected magnesium compounds backed by research and studies to formulate Brain Calm Magnesium. This product features a unique combination of highly absorbable, organic Albion minerals—di-magnesium malate and magnesium lysinate glycinate chelate—and Magtein.
Magtein is a groundbreaking organic magnesium compound that was developed by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) researchers to support “brain power.”
Magtein – Patented Magnesium L-Threonate
Magtein is the result of 10 years of research at MIT. This novel form of magnesium is changing the way we support brain health. Unlike other brain products on the market that work via brain stimulation (often overstimulation), Magtein works via a completely different mechanism.
When brain magnesium levels are not optimal, synapse function deteriorates. By delivering magnesium into synapses, Magtein helps brain cells stay healthy, without being overactivated; consequently, brain cells respond to signals with clarity and robustness.*
Magtein Raises Brain Magnesium Levels
Studies show that Magtein crosses the blood-brain barrier and raises the brain’s magnesium levels, which result in increased magnesium deposits in neural synapses, increased neural synaptic density, and improved brain function.[2.4]
One animal study showed that when the bioavailability of several magnesium compounds was compared to controls, only Magtein significantly enhanced magnesium bioavailability and produced a significant increase (7% to 15%) in rat cerebrospinal fluid. These small but significant increases in brain magnesium levels produced profound effects on neurological function.
Magtein Supports Healthy Synaptic Number and Function
Maintaining extracellular magnesium in the brain helps preserve synaptic density and keeps the synapses working properly.[2,5] By increasing magnesium concentration in the extracellular fluid, researchers observed permanent enhancement of synaptic plasticity in networks of cultured hippocampal neurons.
Delving deeper into the mechanisms involved, later animal research showed that magnesium increased receptor signaling; specifically, the signaling of the NR2B-containing N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor. NMDA receptors are rich in the hippocampus and play a pivotal role in memory processes.
Data from these studies suggest that increasing brain magnesium with Magtein “enhances both short-term synaptic facilitation and long-term potentiation and thereby supports synaptic plasticity and learning and memory functions in rats.”[2,3,6]
Magtein Supports Cognitive Health
The benefits of Magtein were observed in several pre-clinical animal studies that used assessments, such as the NORT (novel object recognition test), T-maze, Morris water maze, conditioned fear memory, and conditioned taste aversion.
In these studies, researchers demonstrated that when brain magnesium levels were increased, significant benefits were detected in multiple aspects of learning and memory in young and aged rodents.[2,4,7]
For instance, NORT tests performed by Slutsky et al revealed ≈135% improvement in short-term memory and ≈85% improvement in long-term memory of aged rats treated with Magtein as compared to control (untreated) rats.
One study examined the effects of Magtein in test mice (genetically altered mice that model age-related cognitive changes). Li et al found that the test mice not given Magtein exhibited “unequivocal learning deficits,” while the test mice given Magtein performed similarly to normal mice.
In short, Magtein helped preserve normal brain function. When magnesium levels in the brain tissue were quantified, the relationship became even clearer: According to researchers, brain magnesium levels positively correlated with cognitive function; that is, the lower a mouse’s brain magnesium level, the poorer its memory function in the NORT task.
Furthermore, histological analysis of brain tissue showed that Magtein administration preserved synapse density and NMDA receptor signaling and also had positive effects on the expression of certain proteins associated with changes in memory.*
A large-scale human clinical trial has recently been completed. The results, publication forthcoming, support the in vitro and animal findings that Magtein positively affects memory, cognition, and synapse density.
Magnesium in Stress Management, Sleep Quality, and Mood
Magnesium is known to benefit the body in ways that counter stress, promote restful sleep, and support a healthy mood. In rats, magnesium administration attenuated neurologic changes brought on by chronic mild stress.
Additionally, by increasing fear memory extinction, Magtein showed promise as a modulator of worry.[4,9] In human studies, magnesium supplementation partially reversed sleep changes associated with aging and improved objective and subjective measures of sleep.[10,12]

I like Dr Jockers' approach to wellness and this translates to his supplements too! I specifically chose this item because I wanted these 3 types of magnesium for their specific benefits to my body. I've been taking it for 3 months now and feel it's working. I'll continue :)
I love Brain Calm. I had a traumatic event in my life and found I was having a difficult time sleeping. I started taking Brain Calm and my sleep pattern has went back to normal.
Been taking it for 3-4 months. No noticeable effect for me.
Hi Karen, Sorry to hear you didn't notice a change with Brain Calm Magnesium. Dr. Jockers does recommend different dosages depending on your unique needs. Advanced dosage is 2 scoops twice or up to three times daily. I hope this information is helpful!
I called a couple of days ago and have not received a call back. I have been using Brain Calm Magnesium for quite a while . The last two jars have been a little different than normal. Normally when I put the powder in water it changes color. The last ones I received do not and they don't dissolve completely, no matter how much I stir there are clumps left in the glass. I don't know if the color not changing is related to the clumping problem. I really like this product but the clumps don't taste good. Thank you
Hi Michael, We are very sorry you are experiencing this issue and apologize for the delay. We are a very small team and sometimes it takes time to get through our voicemails. A full refund has been processed for 2 units. If you would kindly email email@example.com with a picture of the batch information and a picture of the issue you are seeing we would like to understand why this is happening and resolve the issue. Your support of DrJockers.com is greatly appreciated!
Hope it's doing something because it tastes great and dissolves quickly! Less arythmias but I'm not sure this is the right form for that. Might be the Methylene Blue I've started taking.
Hi Susan, Yes Brain Calm Magnesium is great for supporting proper function of the cardiovascular and neurological systems.
