Novel Magnesium Compound REVERSES Neurodegeneration Feb 2012 Life Extension Magazine

Summary of article and observations after searching the web in Jan 2012

  • Magnesium L-Threonate has been found to deliver Magnesium to the brains of rats.
  • This appears to reverse brain problems like Alzheimer’s – at least in rats.
  • No studies so far on humans.
  • No indication that Magnesium L-Threonate is better absorbed outside of the brain – in rats or humans.
  • Many supplement companies are selling the patented compound
    Example: Swansons
  • Seems like the rats were given a LOT of the stuff. Calculation by a person on the internet found that the equivalent for humans would be 7 grams per day.
    Unsure of that persons assumptions (Rat = 6, human = 37?)
