Wonders of MgT

June 4, 2018

We, often, think of the brain as this separate entity from the body. When we picture the brain, we picture it as the master of all other organs, and the maestro of body functions. But do we reflect the same importance on the role of other parts of the body when it comes to brain health?

Research has been finding that there is a tight link between gut and brain health. Certain mineral deficiencies can affect cognitive functions, and can cause inflammatory brain conditions such as: Alzheimer’s disease, long-term and short-term memory issues, insomnia, and even depression, and anxiety. A magnesium deficiency, in specific, can impact brain health significantly.

Why is magnesium important for the brain?

Think of magnesium ions as the guards between neuroreceptors and the cell membranes. The neuroreceptors are responsible for your long-term and short-term memory functions. So, without an adequate magnesium (gatekeepers) intake, there would be no control over the free-flow of ions that can lead to cell death and other serious impacts on brain health.

How do i know i have a magnesium deficiency?

Current research studies estimate that about 75% of the population is magnesium-deficient. A simple magnesium deficiency is very difficult to determine even by lab tests. Therefore, relying solely on blood tests without looking for signs, can often lead to misdiagnoses. There are signs to look for, of course, such as: tics, muscle spasms and cramps, seizures, anxiety, and irregular heart rhythms, which are all linked to low magnesium intake. Migraine headaches, insomnia, depression, and chronic fatigue are all signs to take seriously as well.

What is the most effective form of a magnesium supplement?

Magnesium L-Theoronate (MgT) found in Magtein!

This is the only form of magnesium that cross the blood-brain barrier to raise magnesium levels. One study showed that when the bioavailability of several magnesium compounds was compared to controls, only Magnesium L-Theoronate significantly enhanced magnesium bioavailability and produced a significant increase (7% to 15%) in cerebrospinal fluid. These small but remarkable increases in brain magnesium levels produced profound effects on neurological function.

Why do you recommend magtein, in specific?

Magtein is the result of 10 years of research at MIT. This novel form of magnesium is changing the way we support brain health. Unlike other brain products on the market that work via brain stimulation (often overstimulation), Magtein works via a completely different mechanism. When brain magnesium levels are not optimal, synapse function deteriorates. By delivering magnesium into synapses, Magtein helps brain cells stay healthy, without being overactivated; consequently, brain cells respond to signals with clarity and robustness.

Magtein can be found in OptiMag® Neuro, which is also available in delicious Lemon-Lime and Mixed Berry flavors.

How will magnesium l-theoronate reflect on my brain health?

This wondrous form of magnesium is scientifically-proven to support:

  • Healthy Brain Magnesium Levels.
  • Healthy Synapse Number and Function.
  • Cognitive Health.
  • Stress Management, Sleep Quality, and a Healthy Mood.

In addition to that, it helps ensure an optimal magnesium Intake for overall Health.
