Magnesium is one of the most essential minerals required for your physical and mental wellbeing, as it takes part in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It is also crucial in the production of energy, and is the fourth most abundant mineral in your body.
We need a correct amount of magnesium to sleep properly, keep our blood pressure and heartbeat steady, absorb vitamin D, protect metabolic health, stabilize our mood, and maintain normal nerve & muscle function. These are just a few examples of the many life giving benefits of magnesium, and the effects are well studied.
However, most magnesium supplements are poorly absorbed and do not enter the brain in sufficient quantities.
As a result, consuming a typical magnesium compound other than magnesium L-threonate doesn’t affect brain functions like cognition and memory because much of it does not reach the brain. Luckily magnesium L-threonate solves this problem due to its unique molecular structure.*
Magnesium L-Threonate (MgT) is a nutritional supplement which consists of the salt formed from mixing magnesium and threonic acid, a water-soluble substance derived from the metabolic breakdown of vitamin C.
Magnesium L-Threonate was first developed in 2004 by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It appears that this specific form of magnesium, may in fact be the only form of magnesium that significantly increases the levels of magnesium within the brain through dietary supplementation.
Increasing brain magnesium using this newly developed magnesium compound leads to many neurological benefits such as the enhancement of learning and memory, reduced stress, clearer thinking and better quality sleep.*
Whenever you learn something new, your brain reorganizes itself by forming new connections between brain cells (neurons). The brain's ability to change and grow by forming these new connections is called neuroplasticity, and is fundamental for memory and learning to take place.
The connections formed between these neurons are called synapses. Researchers have demonstrated that increasing the levels of magnesium in the brain helps existing synapses work better, but also increasing the overall number of synapses.
Magnesium L-Threonate is found to be the only form of magnesium which readily crosses the brain’s protective filter, the blood-brain barrier, to deliver magnesium to the brain. Studies show this effect translates into improvements in cognitive function, including better learning and memory.
Another human study shows magnesium l-threonate demonstrated significantly increased speed in tests of reasoning, problem-solving, planning, and better concentration for sustained periods.*
Research has shown that oral magnesium supplements increase the duration of deep sleep, and decrease stress levels. Hence why magnesium is highly regarded as a natural relaxant.
GABA (short for Gamma-Aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid which plays an important role in determining the quality of your sleep. GABA essentially helps your brain power down for the night, to allow your body and mind to rest as it slows down the communication between your brain and your central nervous system.
Magnesium L-Threonate combines with the GABA receptors in the body and increases the neurotransmitter to calm down the nervous system. This allows the mind and body to relax, de-stress and fall asleep more easily.*
