WHAT IS MAGNESIUM L THREONATE?
Magnesium is an essential cofactor for more than 300 enzymes involved in biosynthesis processes and energy metabolism. It plays an important role in many of the brain’s functions.
Magnesium has been implicated in many of the brain functions. However, most magnesium compounds have low brain bioavailability and severe gastrointestinal side effects. Magnesium L Threonate is the only magnesium compound that has been shown to effectively raise the brain’s magnesium levels, which leads to enhanced learning abilities, improved working memory, and better short- and long-term memory in both young and aged animals, making it the best absorbed magnesium supplement on the market to date.
MAGNESIUM L THREONATE BENEFITS AND USES
Various studies have shown that Magnesium L-Threonate (also known as Magtein, Neuro Mag or “brain magnesium”) plays an important role in regulating memory formation, mood and protecting the brain from various stressors.
However, various other studies have also shown that Magnesium supplements, especially forms such as Magnesium Oxide, have a fairly hard time elevating brain levels of Magnesium to statistically significant levels, which is why research shows, Magnesium L-Threonate is currently the only form of Magnesium that will produce significant effects on overall cognition.
Research also suggests when Magnesium L-Threonate reaches the brain, it mainly interacts with the NMDA receptors, which play a key role in the formation of memories. The NMDA receptor contains a specialised site within the receptor to which Magnesium can bind. When Magnesium binds to this site, it blocks the receptor, which prevents the receptor from activating.
This protects the brain from the negative effects of over-activation of the NMDA receptor. NMDA receptor activation, however, is also vital for the formation of memories and this is where Magnesium has a very unique effect. It increases the amount of NMDA receptors in the brain, whilst blocking background activation, which means that when the NMDA receptors get activated during memory formation, there will be a much stronger NMDA receptor response, leading to a deeper and faster memory formation.
Nootropic enthusiasts enjoy Magnesium Threonate for the reported improved cognitive & memory related effects making it an easy supplement to add to your nootropic stack.
MAGNESIUM L THREONATE DOSAGE
As a dietary supplement, take a dose of 1-2 200mg capsules of Magnesium L-Threonate capsules twice daily – once in the morning and once in the evening 2 hours before sleep.
IS MAGNESIUM L-THREONATE WATER SOLUBLE
Magnesium Threonate is the salt formed from mixing magnesium and threonic acid, a water-soluble substance derived from the metabolic breakdown of vitamin C. This makes Magnesium L- Threonate easily water soluble allowing you to mix it in drinks and smoothie with ease.
WHAT FOODS ARE HIGH IN MAGNESIUM THREONATE?
Unfortunately there are no foods that contain compounds like magtein. This is due to the fact that supplements like magtein are formulated and not naturally occurring.
CAN YOU OVERDOSE ON MAGNESIUM L THREONATE?
The body needs magnesium for more than 300 biochemical processes, making magnesium essential for well-being, however too much can cause problems, including digestive issues, lethargy, and an irregular heartbeat. Having too much magnesium in the blood is uncommon. It is more likely to occur in people with existing disorders or health conditions, such as kidney failure.
