Benefits of Magnesium L-Threonate
Improves sleep and reduces anxiety
A recent study(1) on humans has shown improvements in the cognitive function of human brains when supplemented with magnesium l-threonate, resulting in better sleep quality and reduction of anxiety.
Better brain function
Magnesium l-threonate has been shown to improve brain function through its effect on brain synapses.(1)
A synapse is a small gap at the end of a neuron that allows a signal to pass from one neuron to the next. As brains age, the density of these synapses decreases however research has shown that magnesium l-threonate increases synapse density and improves brain function.
Reverses brain aging
Magnesium l-threonate rapidly crosses the blood-brain barrier resulting in regeneration of brain tissues.(1-4)
Better brain function means improved memory. Supplementation with magnesium l-threonate has been shown to improve recall and slow age-related memory decline.(5)
Magnesium promotes relaxation which may result in loose stools when ingesting large amounts.
