Magnesium Is Essential For Children’s Brain Health
Growing children are in desperate need of all kinds of nutrients.
And unfortunately, here in the states and many other Western countries, they simply don’t get enough of many of the minerals that are essential for good health.
Chief among those minerals they need for healthy development is magnesium.
Dr. Wiggy has spent more than a few articles discussing the usefulness of having adequate amounts of magnesium in your body, and also cited various reasons as to why most people don’t get enough of it in their diet.
The short story is that the soil many of our foods grow in are depleted of the minerals needed for healthy human development. And so foods that should nourish us simply don’t.
That’s far from ideal as adults, but when speaking of children being deficient in magnesium it gets a bit more worrisome.
Because magnesium is so important (necessary for over 300 enzymatic processes throughout the body) Dr. Wiggy and his wife worked to bring a product that every parent could use with their kids to help balance out magnesium levels in their child’s body.
The formula they made does this, plus, it also helps to relax kids and calm them down. And what parent wouldn’t appreciate the utility of a supplement that helps keep children healthy and also calms them down?
It’s called Raise Them Well Kid-Safe Calming Magnesium Oil Balm.

Magnesium Is Vital For the Brain
We don’t often think about this, but almost everything that happens in our bodies (and kid’s bodies) is the result of electrical signals of some sort.
We are electrical beings, and electricity coursing through our bodies helps to turn switches on and off so that various processes can happen.
Magnesium is one of the most critically important minerals for helping electrical pathways remain intact and operate as designed.
And nowhere is this more important than in your brain.
Our brains are firing hundreds of millions of electrical signals every single second, and magnesium plays a vital role in making sure the signals are relayed correctly.
When it comes to our brain, magnesium is necessary for helping proper levels of the neurotransmitter GABA being released. By modulating its availability it also helps to support how it calms us down.
It also works on keeping glutamate levels balanced. Glutamate is an excitatory neurotransmitter, and magnesium can influence glutamate levels so they don’t rise higher than would be ideal.
And as James Greenblatt, MD writes “patients with higher magnesium levels also have healthy amounts of serotonin in the cerebrospinal fluid. And the synthesis of dopamine requires magnesium.”
The big takeaway is that kids bodies’ need magnesium so they can create neurotransmitters and then guarantee the signals they’re meant to send actually deploy and arrive.
Kids who are deficient in magnesium have brains that aren’t functioning at full strength.
And if you’re a parent of a kid who doesn’t get enough magnesium in their diet, no doubt you can tell.
