AIDP, the manufacturer of Magtein™, a proprietary blend of magnesium L-threonate, released a white paper demonstrating the extensive peer-reviewed and published science behind the product’s mechanism of action, safety and efficacy. The product helps consumers maintain cognitive health.
Dr. Guosong Liu, one of the world’s leading cognitive health researchers, said, “There is general scientific agreement that magnesium is an essential cofactor for more than 300 enzymes involved in biosynthesis processes and energy metabolism. In addition, it plays an important role in many of the brain’s functions; but most magnesium compounds have low brain bioavailability and severe gastrointestinal side effects.
“However, a significant number of health care providers are unaware that Magtein, is the only magnesium compound that has been shown to effectively raise the brain’s magnesium levels, which leads to enhanced learning abilities, working memory, and short- and long-term memory in both young and aged animals. Four published preclinical studies found that Magtein improved memory.”
The white paper notes:
- The ability to raise brain magnesium levels were evaluated among the most bioavailable organic and inorganic magnesium forms. Magnesium concentration in the cerebrospinal fluid was evaluated following treatment of different magnesium compounds available including Magtein and the most bioavailable inorganic magnesium, magnesium-chloride, and the most bioavailable organic magnesium, magnesium-gluconate in milk. After 24 days, Magtein was the only magnesium compound to raise the cerebrospinal fluid magnesium concentration with statistical significance.
- Learning and memory are fundamental brain functions affected by dietary and environmental factors. Our research shows that increasing brain magnesium using a newly developed magnesium compound (magnesium-L-threonate, Magtein) leads to the enhancement of learning abilities, working memory, and short- and long-term memory in rats.
- Evaluations of animals taking different magnesium forms for their short-term and long-term memory by a novel object recognition test demonstrated that only Magtein subjects showed a significant increase in both short term and long-term memory.
