Magnesium is an essential mineral that is required for 80% of the body’s metabolic functions.
Most people don’t get nearly enough magnesium from their diet.
In the United States, approximately 65% of all adults are magnesium deficient.
That number gets even higher in older age, with more than 80% of people over 70 consuming inadequate amounts of magnesium.
This leads to magnesium deficiency, which contributes to many chronic conditions including heart disease and loss of cognitive function.
Magnesium plays an especially critical role in the brain, protecting synapses which are the communication connection points between brain cells.
In order to learn and form memories, synapses must have a property known as plasticity, the ability to adapt and change in response to stimuli.
The decline of synaptic plasticity is a major contributor to the loss of cognitive function in older age.
Our Magnesium L-Threonate was developed by a team of scientists at MIT. This form of magnesium is highly absorbable and has been shown to increase brain levels of magnesium much higher than any other form of magnesium. In a clinical study of adults with cognitive impairment, Magnesium L-Threonate reversed measures of brain aging by 9 years.
