Magtein & Other Magnesium Supplements Impact on Brain Function
Question: Do magnesium supplements, like Magtein, help memory or protect against Alzheimer's disease?
Answer: Magnesium plays an important role in brain cell function and some preliminary research in animals has suggested it may influence cognitive functions like memory and learning. A preliminary study in people found that magnesium-L-threonate (Magtein or Clarimem) modestly improved limited aspects of cognitive function. Another study of magnesium-L-threonate in people with dementia was completed in mid-2016 but the results have not been published.
