Early results in mice appear to show promise. Increasing magnesium levels in the brain which may slow motor decline due to Parkinson’s.

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is neurodegenerative, meaning it causes decline in the brain function. It most often occurs in middle-aged people and is characterized by a tremor. 
We know that magnesium is a mineral supplement. It appears to effect, nerve cell transmission and neuromuscular coordination. In Parkinson’s patients, a low level of this mineral have been reported. Other studies suggest a higher presence of the disease when a magnesium deficiency is noted. Other benefits of Magnesium include prevention of migraines and help in reducing the effects of stress.
