Why it Works:
Magnesium is an essential mineral for more than 600 different biochemical reactions in the body. These include processes that support bone- and cardiovascular health, energy management and mood . Although it is recognized for its many health benefits, one of it’s most crucial health benefits is its ability to help to maintain a youthful cognitive function. However, older people are often at risk of being deficient in this mineral [7-10].
Furthermore, the L-threonate form has been shown to increase the concentration of this mineral in the brain. Higher concentrations of magnesium in the brain helps support both memory [4,5] and cognition.
More specifically, this form helps maintain the quantity of synaptic connections that are present in brain cells [2,3]. It also plays a role in the facilitation of crucial signaling pathways between brain cells.
Moreover, this formula comes in an easily palatable and tasty tropical powder format. This oral format makes it one of the easiest supplements for memory to take on a daily basis, as it mixes easily into drinks.
The Science Behind the Product:
One of the key health benefits of magnesium L-threonate is that it helps improve memory. It is better absorbed into the bloodstream where it is delivered directly to the brain.
In a clinical trial study which lasted 12 weeks, subjects were given a supplement of 2 gr magnesium L-threonate. After the 12 weeks had ended, the working memory of the study participants had improved by 13% and episodic memory had improved by almost 38% .
