The Magnesium and Restless Legs Connection

RLS Puzzle Piece #1: Clogged Dopamine Receptors & Chelated Magnesium

By now you probably realize the beneficial link that magnesium and restless legs have. And you may also know that faulty dopamine receptors are key in the restless leg dilemma. But why are these receptors not functioning properly like they should with RLS sufferers? And what is it exactly about magnesium that is so beneficial for restless leg sufferers?

One major clue has been found in the studies of magnesium. Magnesium is a major mineral that is responsible for over 300+ biochemical reactions in the body and is usually one of the first things our bodies go deficient in.

This matters to you because one of the things that magnesium does is magnetically bind with aluminum and other toxins which often clog delicate dopamine receptors, thus clearing the channel so that the delicate communication between nerve cells can function properly again.

Metals such as aluminum, are very poor conductors of electricity. Experts are finding that Alzheimer’s patients often have large quantities of aluminum in their brain tissue. Some believe that an accumulation of these types of metals in the body are interfering with proper electromagnetic signals within the nervous system.

The best type of magnesium is chelated magnesium, like magnesium glycinate, which permits just enough calcium into the cell for proper electrical transmission, then forces it back outside. Too much calcium in the cell and the nerve cells become irritated causing electrical impulses to fire rapidly causing contractions, spasms and tics.
