Presented by James Greenblatt, M.D.
Clinical research supports a crucial link between mineral status and mental health. Zinc, magnesium, and trace minerals such as lithium play indispensable roles in hundreds of biochemical reactions in the brain. These elements regulate emotions, thoughts, mood, sleep, and behavior by modulating neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, GABA and glutamate. In addition, they play a key role in the synthesis of nerve growth factors and hormones such as cortisol. Studies show that supplementation supports emotional well-being, cognitive function and brain health. James Greenblatt, M.D., an integrative psychiatrist and Founder and Medical Director of Comprehensive Psychiatric Resources in Waltham, MA, is a prolific lecturer and author with 25 years of experience in nutrition and mental health. In this webinar, Dr. Greenblatt discusses evidence-based mineral augmentation strategies to support emotional, behavioral and neurocognitive health. Published research findings, proper dosage, bioavailability, interactions and clinical assessment methods will be presented.‡
