Purchased a new supplement

I recently ordered Max Neuromag by My Wellness Journey. It looks promising, can't wait to try it. The formula is comprised of three different forms of Magnesium: Dimagnesium Malate, Magnesium Levothreonate, and Magnesium Lysinate Glycinate Chelate. The middle form is capable of crossing the blood brain barrier. There is an additional gram of it in the formulation. Anyway, I am looking forward to seeing results!

I tried Sarcosine (N-methylglycine) a couple years ago. It worked well for me and I felt better while keeping it as part of my daily regimen. It was a brain health supplement, as is the one in the aforementioned paragraph. I have some mental health issues, which I hope to keep at bay or even correct. Anyway, the reason I stopped taking the Sarcosine (by Brain Vitaminz) is because it became unavailable. But hopefully this new nutraceutical will work well for me.

What is the reason for this supplement uniden, mental focus/clarity?

I am hoping it helps with my cognition, mental productiveness, memory, and sleep quality. I am looking forward to trying it.

Very good, please let us know if you notice any improvement after you've taken it for awhile.

I have taken the supplement for five nights in a row, and my insomnia still persists. If anything, it has gotten worse since I began taking it. My sleeping patterns are way out of whack. I stay up all night and sleep until the afternoon. I am on three medications besides the supplements I take. So it could be one of my medications causing this aberrant circadian rhythmic pattern. If I were to take a guess, I would say my Olanzapine is too high. I am on 30 mg per day of this medication. The maximum recommended therapeutic dose for this medication is 20 mg per day. I will have to mention to my psychiatrist that I think it is too high.

Sorry to hear that Uniden. I don't know anything about the medication you're taking but I hope your psychiatrist can do something to help you. Good luck, not sleeping is so unhealthy for mind and body.

I purchased a different brand of the Neuromag supplement. It has no other ingredients besides the three forms of magnesium. I took it for the first time tonight. I am feeling different already. I feel more relaxed and at ease. Perhaps the extra ingredients in the Neuromag by the other brand interfered with the efficacy of the forms of magnesium. This product is much more clean.

*UPDATE*

I had actually stopped taking the supplement for a little while. I began taking it again about three weeks ago. Ever since then, I have been feeling more relaxed and able to think more clearly. One of its nutraceutical constituents is Magnesium Levothreonate, which is the active form of an amino acid covalently bonded to a major mineral/electrolyte. This form of Magnesium is patented as Magtein. The slogan for the latter is "Think Clearly". It's funny, because that is what I have noticed the most so far; the ability to think more pellucidly.

Also, I think the reason I was having difficulty sleeping while I was on the Max Neuromag, as opposed to Neuromag Plus; was because the first ingredient in the formulation was citric acid. I believe this phytonutrient has the potential to interact with a medication I take. So I have been taking the Neuromag Plus instead. I am feeling good on it.

That's good. Thanks for giving us a review. I know that magnesium is very calming to smooth muscles. It's the opposite of calcium. It's great when we can find the right formulation of magnesium.

You say that you take it at night. Do you take it right before bed or some hours before? Do you take anything else along with it? Have you had food close to that time?

I take it about an hour before bed time. I take a fish oil supplement a little while before the magnesium. My diet is terrible. I am always snacking on unhealthy things close to bed time. My medication makes me eat unhealthy things. It's part of being "normal", I guess. If I were engaging in these unhealthy habits and not taking the magnesium, I would get worse. I remember when I stopped the magnesium, my Schizophrenia got worse. I was more symptomatic. I remember telling my psychiatrist about my symptoms worsening, and all he said was, "Huh." Then after I began taking the Neuromag Plus again, my symptoms abated. I know if I want to be completely healthy, I will need to change my dietary habits. My psychotropic medication helps me, but the side-effects are unbearable. I would rather choose a real solution, like Orthomolecular medicine. But as long as I am taking my antipsychotic medication, which isn't real medicine, I will have to "choose" to eat unhealthy things. The antipsychotic medication controls me. I remember when I was reducing my antipsychotic medication, with my psychiatrist's permission, I was also eating a healthy diet; which made my symptoms go away. But the medication was still in my system, and I was seeing a conventional psychotherapist. So there were still times when my symptoms got worse because at times I was still consuming unhealthy things.
