Magnesium, Iron & Zinc

  • Magnesium deficiency has been shown to be in in 72% of ADHD children
  • Iron deficiency has been reported in children with cognitive and behavioral impairments that prominently include poor attention and hyperactivity
  • Magnesium and zinc are key nutrients and co-factors that plays an important role in the formation of neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin.

Why AccentrateMZI™?

Magnesium deficiency has been shown to be in in 72% of ADHD children1 and individuals with ADHD are likely to be deficient in zinc.2 Iron deficiency has been reported in children with cognitive and behavioral impairments that prominently include poor attention and hyperactivity.3,4

Magnesium and zinc are key nutrients and co-factors that plays an important role in the formation of neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Dopamine is important for attention and serotonin is important for regulating mood. Iron is a cofactor for enzymes necessary for the synthesis and catabolism of the monoaminergic neurotransmitters,5which are strongly implicated in the etiopathophysiology of ADHD.6

Restoration

AccentrateMZI™ provides minerals that are known to be deficient in individuals with ADHD.7

The minerals in AccentrateMZI™ are provided in chelated form that break down in the stomach to provide better absorption and increased bioavailability. Chelated minerals are a safe, effective and well-tolerated form that should not result in constipation, nausea, diarrhea, or gastric upset.

These minerals have important roles in neurologic function, including involvement in neurotransmitter synthesis.

Research

Stimulant medication has been shown to cause magnesium deficiencies that may increase irritability, anxiety, agitation, insomnia, facial tics, and nail-biting. Magnesium supplementation may improve these conditions. Low levels of zinc have been shown to impede the effectiveness of stimulant medication.9 And zinc supplementation has been shown to increase the effectiveness of stimulant medication.  It has also been suggested that iron supplementation could be considered as an important adjunctive therapy to strengthen the effectiveness of psychostimulants rather than as a treatment per se for ADHD.10

Patience

Studies have shown that magnesium supplementation in ADHD patients for at least 2 months resulted in improved clinical symptoms including reduced hyperactivity and aggressiveness, additionally, school attention improved. When the magnesium treatment was stopped, clinical symptoms reappeared in few weeks.  It has also been reported that the Parent and Teacher Rating Scale scores improved with zinc supplementation over a 6-week, double blind, and placebo-controlled trial.11 Supplementation with zinc has also shown to improve symptoms of hyperactivity, inattentiveness, and oppositional behavior.12
