Source of magnesium to support cognitive function in those with mild cognitive impairment
Several studies indicate that synaptic connections in the brain hippocampus, a critical brain region for learning and memory, decline during the normal process of aging. NeuroMag™, which uses the unique, patented, chelated mineral Magtein™, contains magnesium which is chelated to threonic acid (magnesium L-threonate). It is superior to other forms of magnesium at getting through the blood brain barrier because it is able to transport magnesium ions across lipid membranes, including those of brain cells.
Researchers at MIT concluded that elevating brain magnesium content via supplementation with Magtein™ may be a useful strategy to support cognitive abilities and decrease common age-related memory decline.
