DNA-MLT Magnesium L-Threonate 60’s
Developed by MIT researchers, Magnesium L-Threonate has been shown to reverse clinical measures of brain aging by nine years.
Magnesium L-Threonate is the only form of magnesium that crosses the blood-brain barrier.
Magnesium L-threonate is a nutritional supplement containing the L-threonate form of magnesium (Mg) that can be used to normalize Mg levels in the body.
Upon administration, Mg is utilized by the body for many biochemical functions and reactions including: bone and muscle function, protein and fatty acid formation, activation of B vitamins, blood clotting, insulin secretion, and ATP formation. Mg also serves as a catalyst for many enzymes throughout the body. In addition, magnesium improves the functioning of the immune system by enhancing the expression of natural killer activating receptor NKG2D in cytotoxic T-lymphocytes and natural killer (NK) cells. This increases their anti-viral and anti-tumour cytotoxic effects.
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. It’s involved in over 300 metabolic reactions that are essential for human health, including energy production, regulation of blood pressure, nerve signal transmission, and muscle contraction.
Low levels of magnesium are linked to a variety of illnesses such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, mood disorders, and migraines.
Although magnesium is present in many whole foods like green leafy vegetables, legumes and nuts, up to two-thirds of people in the Western world don’t get enough magnesium that the body requires to function.
Many people take magnesium supplements to increase their magnesium intake but there are so many forms of magnesium available that it can be difficult to decide which one to take.
Here is a short description of the various forms of magnesium available, as well as their uses.
Magnesium L-threonate is easily absorbed, can cross the blood-brain barrier and supports brain health, potentially aiding the treatment of disorders like depression and memory loss.
