Presented by James Greenblatt, M.D.
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in the central nervous system. Through neurological and endocrine mechanisms, magnesium maintains healthy mood, eating behavior, cognitive performance, sleep quality and stress responses. The neurological actions of magnesium involve neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, dopamine, GABA and glutamate, and hormones such as cortisol and melatonin. James Greenblatt, M.D. is an integrative psychiatrist who is the Founder and Medical Director of Comprehensive Psychiatric Resources, Inc., in Waltham, MA. He is the author of two books addressing nutrition, neurotransmission and mental health. In this one-hour webinar, Dr. Greenblatt will discuss the proper use of magnesium in clinical practice. Bioavailability and dosage will be discussed with relevance to psychiatric applications. Strategic combinations with other nutrients for maximum benefit will also be presented.‡
