It has now been established that magnesium is a critical player in the activation of nerve channels that are involved in the generation of new synapses, as well as synaptic plasticity which is the core process behind learning and memory. As reported in the journal Neuron, researchers demonstrated actual enhancement in the learning abilities, working memory, as well as short as well as long-term memory and even quality of sleep, in laboratory animals, who were given Magnesium L-Threonate. Additionally, it appears that this specific form of magnesium, may in fact be the only form that significantly increases the levels of magnesium within the brain.
*Capsule variant contains approximately 800mg Magnesium L-Threonate (58mg elemental magnesium) per 1 capsule serving, no fillers, excipients or any other inactive ingredients.
*Powder variants come with a free orange measuring scoop that measures approximately 450mg Magnesium L-Threonate (32mg elemental magnesium) per compressed level scoop.
The proper magnesium threonate dosage is around 1 grams in order to yield a much lower amount of elemental magnesium (7,2%). Most evidence points to around 200 mg of elemental magnesium daily and threonate is one of the best sources.
