Half of the aging humans in the developed world are magnesium deficient.1
Found in dark, leafy green vegetables, magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body.2
In addition to support for cardiovascular3-5 and bone health,6 energy, metabolism,7 and mood,8 researchers are now focusing intensely on magnesium's benefits for cognitive function.2 Unfortunately, it is very hard for your body to maintain optimal levels of magnesium in the brain.2 This problem is of special concern for maturing individuals, as magnesium deficiency increases over time.1
Most magnesium supplements are not readily absorbed into the nervous system. To overcome this obstacle, an innovative form of magnesium is being introduced called Neuro-Mag™, shown to specifically target the aging brain and nervous system. In preclinical models, L-threonate contained in Neuro-Mag™ boosted magnesium levels in spinal fluid by an impressive 15% compared to no increase with conventional magnesium.2 Even more compelling, animal models revealed improvements of 18% for short-term memory and 100% for long-term memory using the Neuro-Mag™ form of magnesium.2
The suggested daily dose of three Neuro-Mag™ Magnesium L-Threonate Capsules provides 2,000 mg of magnesium-L-threonate. While this supplies a modest 144 mg of elemental magnesium, its superior absorption into the bloodstream and nervous system make it a preferred choice for aging humans to supplement with.
Magnesium L-Threonate has less of a laxative effect than other forms of magnesium.
