Magnesium comes in many different forms. Today, I want to cover magnesium threonate or magnesium L-threonate.

This is a specific type of magnesium. Threonate transports magnesium across the blood-brain barrier to the hippocampus.

The hippocampus is involved in memory, learning, focus, and concentration. People typically take magnesium L-threonate when they want to support the brain.

A magnesium deficiency can lead to various issues related to the brain and throughout the body.

Benefits of magnesium L-threonate:
• It may help reduce worry and anxiety (especially when trying to sleep)
• It may help decrease neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration
• It’s a calcium regulator and antagonist
• It helps maintain and support the blood-brain barrier
• It can act as an antioxidant
• It helps support BDNF
• It may help with androgenic alopecia

If you want to use magnesium to support the brain, I would use magnesium threonate. To support other issues like cramping or fatigue or to support the heart, I would take magnesium glycinate. Magnesium citrate can be helpful as well, especially to help prevent kidney stones.
