Magnesium is essential for multiple body functions including building your bones, your DNA and genetic materials. It also helps your body to relax and detoxify.
Despite a healthy diet rich in fresh organic vegetables, you may still come up short in certain nutrients.
As you grow older, your body becomes less efficient in absorbing important vitamins and minerals. One such mineral is magnesium.
However, if you do choose to supplement, it's vital to choose a readily absorbable form! Non-compatible forms of magnesium can cause unwanted effects such as a laxative effect on the bowel.
Experts believe that as many as 80 percent of westerners don’t get enough. Because there are no reliable lab tests for magnesium, you have no way of knowing where you stand. Fatigue and weakness may be your only clues that you’re low!
So why Magnesium L-Threonate? This form of magnesium is preferred over other types for several reasons, including:
High cellular penetration characteristics to allow it to cross your blood-brain barrier and penetrate cell membranes
Significantly reduces GI discomfort, unlike other forms of magnesium that can cause gastrointestinal discomfort and loose stools (Magnesium L-Threonate does not act as a laxative)
Superior absorption characteristics of any form of magnesium.
