ABSTRACT: In this research work, we examined the role of magnesium supplementation on aluminum induced lipid peroxidation in the brain of albino rats using standard protocols. Findings from this study revealed significantly (P<0.05), higher content (4.70??0.13ug/g) of aluminum in the brain of the group treated with only aluminum compared to the content (0.53??0.21ug/g) observed in the group treated with high magnesium supplementation. The tissue brain protein content decreased significantly in the aluminum treated group and low magnesium supplemented group compared to the control and high magnesium supplemented group (P<0.05). The malonyldialdehyde (measure of lipid peroxidation) content (3.04??0.09nmole MDA/mg) was significantly higher in the aluminum treated group, compared to the content (0.72??0.10 and 0.82??0.40nmole MDA/mg) observed in the control and high magnesium supplemented group respectively. Conclusively, high malonyldialdehyde content in the brain of the albino rats stimulated by aluminum intoxication was significantly lowered by high magnesium supplementation.
