Brain Health

The best quality magnesium for brain health, learning ability, working memory and cognitive function.  This product is pure ingredient and no additives or fillers.  

Magnesium L-Threonate is considered to be superior because it is better absorbed and can cross the blood brain barrier.  It supports nerve signaling pathways and maintains synaptic connections between brain cells.

The blood brain barrier separates brain tissues and the spinal cord from circulating blood.  Magnesium L-Threonate has demonstrated benefits of synaptic plasticity, which is a measure of how adaptable your brain is and how readily new connections can be formed.  

Magnesium is one of seven essential macrominerals required by the human body to function properly.  It is involved in more than 300 enzymatic reactions that control the synthesis of protein, the metabolism of energy as well as nerve signaling.  If you have low levels of magnesium in the brain, this may be associated with neuronal hyperexcitation and firing of nerves when they should be at rest.

This mineral is purported to have neuroprotective benefits, helping to prevent damage to neurons caused by excitotoxicity or over-excitation of glutamate receptors.  It is also believed to promote neuroplasticity and support the formation of new connections in memory centers of the brain.  

By boosting the number of synapses found in the hippocampus, which regulates emotions and plays a role in long-term memory formation and recall, it helps the brain remain adaptive throughout life.

Memory

It improves memory performance and enhances learning abilities.  It can improve dementia, PTSD, depression, anxiety and cognitive decline linked to aging.

Anxiety

A deficiency in magnesium can cause anxiety.  Combined with Vitamin B6 there is a significant reduction in anxiety.  It influences the levels of the brains primary inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA.  GABA is important to calm the brain down and keep the primary excitatory neurotransmitter (glutamate) from overexciting neurons.  Having adequate GABA activity in the brain is important for preventing feelings of anxiousness.

Magnesium is involved in GABA synthesis and other mood-regulating brain chemicals like serotonin and dopamine.  Proper balance of these brain chemicals is important for maintaining a stable mood.  It also modules anxiety and stress responses in the paraventricular hypothalamic nucleus.

Depression

Low levels of magnesium in the diet could contribute to symptoms of depression and related mood disorders.

ADHD

Promotes attention span, behavioral control and concentration in both adults and children.  A deficiency is linked to ADHD.  Used together with a fish oil supplement providing Omega 3 fatty acids improves efficacy.  

Sleep

Take it before bedtime and it will help you fall asleep.  It helps you to relax and quiet the mind.  A magnesium deficiency can cause sleep disturbances or chronic insomnia.  Insufficient levels may lower quality of sleep and increase the number of interruptions during the night.

Dr Josh Axe says that diets lacking in magnesium rich foods, and poor nutrient absorption shift our circadian rhythms as we age and increase the likelihood of developing insomnia.  It may also increase levels of the sleep hormone melatonin and decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

Migraines

Magnesium deficiency contributes to the development of migraine headaches and cluster headaches.  Migraines are marked by intense pain, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light.  Magnesium promotes the release of hormones that have an effect on reducing pain.  It may also promote the dilation or expansion of constricted blood vessels in the brain that contribute to migraines and elevate blood pressure.

Athletic Performance

Magnesium is involved in numerous processes that affect muscle function including oxygen uptake, energy production and electrolyte balance.  It also acts as a hydrogen buffer to help muscles to clear accumulations of lactic acid that cause burning during exercise.

Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless Leg Syndrome is a disorder that causes uncomfortable sensations in the legs and irresistible urge to move.  Users report feeling pins and needles or an itchy sensation in leg muscles that make it impossible to keep still.  The sensation typically occurs more frequently at night and can make it difficult to fall asleep.  Magnesium L-threonate is helpful at alleviating this condition.

Premenstrual Syndrome Symptoms

Adequate levels of magnesium can improve PMS symptoms, especially pain, mood changes and fluid retention symptoms.  Combining it with Vitamin B6 reduces anxiety-related symptoms such as mood swings, irritability and nervous tension.

Hair Loss

L-threonate can reduce the expression of a gene that is involved in mediating androgenic hair loss.  By repressing expression of the gene, it may inhibit a pathway involved in male pattern hair loss.  It reduces the expression of the dickkopt-1 gene, which is induced the the endogenous androgenic hormone DHT.  Higher levels of DHT have been associated with hair loss and premature balding in men.

Magnesium also supports hair and scalp health.

Fewer Digestive Side Effects

L-Theonate does not stimulate a bowel movement like other magnesium, because it is better absorbed from the gut into the bloodstream.

Directions:  Take 1 or 2 at night just before bedtime.
