We are thrilled to share a groundbreaking moment for Ambio Life Sciences and our esteemed collaborators at Stanford University. Our latest study, “Magnesium–Ibogaine therapy in veterans with traumatic brain injuries“, has been published in the prestigious Nature Medicine journal. 

This publication marks a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to improve the lives of veterans suffering from traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and we strongly believe this will pave the way to expanding treatment options far beyond the veteran community.

The study focuses on a novel treatment approach using Magnesium–Ibogaine, targeting veterans with TBIs. Ibogaine, a plant-derived compound, has shown promise in treating substance use disorders but has been underexplored for TBIs, especially in veteran populations. This study is a pivotal step in understanding its potential.

Here are the Top Takeaways from the Ibogaine Therapy for Veterans Study:

1. Significant Improvement in Functioning and Psychiatric Symptoms:


The study revealed remarkable improvements in functioning and symptoms of PTSD, depression, and anxiety among the participants immediately and one month post-treatment. These findings are not only statistically significant but also represent a substantial improvement in the quality of life for these veterans.

2. Safe and Well-Tolerated:

Importantly, the treatment was found to be safe, with no serious adverse events reported. This is crucial as safety concerns have historically limited ibogaine research.

3. Cognitive Benefits:

Beyond the primary psychiatric outcomes, the treatment showed significant improvements in cognitive functions, including processing speed and executive functioning. This aspect is particularly relevant considering the cognitive impairments often associated with TBIs.

4. Groundbreaking for Veteran Care:

Given the high rate of TBIs and associated psychiatric conditions among veterans, this research offers a beacon of hope. It’s a testament to the potential of ibogaine therapy in addressing the complex needs of this vulnerable population.

We are proud to contribute to this revolutionary work. This publication in Nature Medicine is a step towards changing the lives of veterans for the better.
