Health benefits at a glance:
Magnesium in Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L Threonate plays a role in more than 300 biochemical reactions in your body and can help you support cardiovascular- and bone health, support energy metabolism, mood, and most importantly contribute positively to maintaining a normal cognitive function when aging.
Why it works:
Magnesium is essential for more than 300 different biochemical reactions in the body — from cardiovascular [1-8] and bone health support [9-12] to energy metabolism support [13-15], mood support [16-19] and most especially, magnesium can also contribute to your cognitive function [20-25].
Unfortunately, it’s hard to maintain optimal levels of magnesium in the brain - especially because magnesium levels in the body decrease with normal aging.
Some of the Magnesium l threonate benefits are that it can support healthy memory and cognition by optimizing magnesium levels in the brain. And because of its superior absorption into the bloodstream and nervous system, Life Extension Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L Threonate can provide the ideal form of magnesium for enhanced memory and cognitive function.
The science behind the product:
Magnesium is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions and 600 enzymatic reactions in the body. Furthermore, magnesium is also needed to support cardiovascular, bone health, energy metabolism, glucose metabolism, mood, sleep and vitamin D status.
Magnesium L threonate is a powerful form of magnesium that is delivered into the brain where it can maintain the quantity of synaptic connections between brain cells. It can also support important brain signaling pathways.
Increased brain magnesium levels can improve memory. It was shown in compelling animal models that Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L Threonate improved short-term memory by 18% and long-term memory by 100%.
The problem with many magnesium supplements is that they are not absorbed well enough into the nervous system. In order to solve this issue, a powerful form of magnesium known as Magnesium L-threonate has been created.
It was shown that this particular form of magnesium can target the aging brain and nervous system. In pre-clinical models, the magnesium L threonate contained in Neuro-Mag® increased magnesium levels in spinal fluid by 15% compared to no increase observed with traditional magnesium.
