Magnesium L-threonate is a form of magnesium that has been developed to easily cross the blood-brain barrier and increase magnesium levels in the brain. It has been clinically proven to improve cognitive health and memory, and is recommended to be taken in doses of 1500 to 2000 mg per day. The suggested dose is three capsules of Mag Threonate, two in the morning and one in the evening. Magnesium L-threonate is generally safe and serious side effects are rare.
However, it should not be taken if you have kidney disease, as the kidneys normally remove magnesium from the body. Additionally, it is important to avoid products that contain artificial ingredients, food colors, flavor variations, and preservatives. Common side effects include headaches, drowsiness, or a feeling of increased blood flow to the head. Taking more than 1000 mg of magnesium can cause watery stools.
Animal research suggests that magnesium l-threonate might be particularly useful for anxiety disorders, such as phobias and post-traumatic stress disorder, but human studies are needed. It has also been demonstrated that chronic oral administration of magnesium L-threonate can prevent and restore short-term memory deficits and LTP in CA3-CA1 synapses in the hippocampus caused by SNI. Magnesium L-Threonate from Double Wood Supplements is clinically certified and contains no soy, gluten or GMO. It is an excellent choice for those looking for a safe and effective way to increase their magnesium levels and improve their cognitive health.
