Magnesium - Studies Show Helpful for Brain Health

Magnesium is necessary for brain health. This plays a key role in the way neurons connect and communicate with each other. In a study with mice, it showed that this special form of Magnesium can penetrate the blood-brain barrier which leads to improved learning, working memory, and long and short-term memory.

This was the first study to demonstrate a mechanism for reversing cognitive decline in mice with advanced-stage Alzheimer’s disease and is also the first to show an effective long-term treatment for mice with early-stage Alzheimer’s.

The team’s previous research found that not only does magnesium L-Threonate effectively cross the blood-brain barrier and increase brain magnesium levels, supplementation with this form of magnesium enhances the connections (synapses) between brain neurons in the hippocampus, the region of the brain region where memories are processed. Profound loss of synapses is a major hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease and memory impairment.

Supplementing with 1,500 to 2,000 mg of Threonate Magnesium daily for 12 weeks showed improved magnesium status, improved cognitive abilities; reduced fluctuation in cognitive ability; reversal of brain aging. It should be a key part of any anti-aging program.

Here is the study:
