Dr. Sharlin's Brain Tune Up Supplements
Neuro Mag Pro
HOW NEURO MAG PRO HELPS✅ Aids the brain’s ability to process information
✅ Combats memory-related issues
✅ Promotes healthy sleep
Neuro Mag Pro provides three unique forms of highly absorbed magnesium to ensure maximum absorption of this important macro-mineral. Most magnesium supplements use only a single-source of magnesium, which can easily overwhelm a single pathway of absorption and limit uptake of high-dose magnesium regimens.
Neuro Mag Pro takes advantage of three unique pathways of absorption by providing magnesium as di-magnesium malate, magnesium citrate and magnesium glycinate for enhanced absorption, improved utilization and gastrointestinal comfort. The areas that magnesium supplementation supports are heart health, insulin health, and bone health.
Magnesium plays a key role in the brain and nervous system function. From a neurological standpoint, magnesium plays an essential role in nerve transmission and neuromuscular conduction. It also functions in a protective role against excessive excitation that can lead to neuronal cell death (excitotoxicity) and has been implicated in multiple neurological disorders.
Magnesium status is highly associated with stress levels, with both stress and low magnesium potentiating each other’s negative effects. Hypomagnesemia has been associated with stressful conditions such as migraine, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Lastly, Magnesium stimulates electrical activity in the brain and aids the brain's ability to process information, helping both memory and sleep. Magnesium helps promote memory, positivity and quality sleep.
Bioavailability - The Mineral Chelate Difference
The importance of bioavailability is obvious. If consuming a magnesium supplement has little effect on improving the body’s magnesium balance, there is no reason to ingest it. Signs of inferior mineral supplements include the use of cheap, poorly absorbed, rock-salt minerals like calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide. These mineral forms slow and limit absorption, relying on adequate stomach acid to release magnesium ions which then enter the body via passive diffusion. And, because they tend to remain in the intestines longer, these forms of mineral supplements can cause intestinal distress such as constipation (calcium carbonate) or diarrhea (magnesium oxide).
Reacted Magnesium provides the additional benefit of highly-absorbed, Albion® mineral chelates. Albion® is the world leader in manufacturing highly bioavailable mineral chelates, a specialized form of minerals bound to amino acids. This patented process creates organic mineral compounds which use active absorption mechanisms in the gastrointestinal tract to greatly enhance mineral absorption.
In a magnesium comparison study reported by Graff et al. at Weber State University, Albion®’s magnesium amino acid chelate had:
- 8.8 times greater absorption than magnesium oxide
- 5.6 times greater absorption than magnesium sulfate
- 2.3 times greater absorption than magnesium carbonate
In addition, other comparison studies have shown significantly superior absorption of magnesium chelates compared to other mineral forms:
At a dose of 400 mg, magnesium chelate significantly reduced or eliminated menstrual abdominal discomfort.
Multiple double blind studies found urinary excretion of magnesium chloride higher than magnesium glycinate, proving superior absorption.
Magnesium glycinate is shown to have a reduced laxative effect when compared to other forms of magnesium.
Mineral chelates are gentle, gut “friendly” minerals that do not cause diarrhea that often accompanies magnesium oxide and other rock-salt forms. Albion®’s mineral chelates have extensive clinical research proving their superior bioavailability, biologic activity, stability, and improved tolerance.
WHO SHOULD TAKE NEURO MAG PRO?Those who have memory-related issues, want to sharpen their minds, get better sleep, or relieve stress-related health issues should take Neuro Mag Pro.
WHO SHOULD TAKE BRAIN BIOTIC?
Recent studies show a link between poor gut health and poor immunity. When you are sick, your brain doesn't function as well as it normally would. My Brain Biotic supplement helps to improve your overall gut function and keep your brain sharp and your immune system strong. Those who struggle with getting sick or have frequent issues with their digestive system should really consider purchasing my Brain Biotic and taking 1 pill per day.
Please let me know if you have any questions or need help finding a particular supplement.
