Unfortunately, it is very hard for your body to maintain optimal levels of magnesium in the brain.94 This problem is of special concern for maturing individuals, as magnesium deficiency increases over time.80
Most commercially available magnesium supplements are not readily absorbed into the nervous system. To overcome this obstacle, you can supplement with an innovative form of magnesium called Neuro-Mag®, shown to specifically target the aging brain and nervous system.
In pre-clinical models, L-threonate contained in Neuro-Mag® boosted magnesium levels in spinal fluid by an impressive 15% compared to no increase with conventional magnesium.94 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.94
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 supplemental choice.
This highly absorbable brain health-supporting magnesium is also available in a good tasting powder mix called Neuro-Mag® Magnesium L-Threonate Powder with Calcium and Vitamin D3. In addition to its appealing lemon flavor, the one-scoop-per-day serving size supplies the same 144 mg of elemental magnesium plus 500 mg of calcium (as calcium lactate gluconate — a highly soluble form of calcium) and 1, 000 IU of vitamin D3.
