Recently a new form of Magnesium has been found by researchers. This Magnesium is called Magnesium threonate.
The reason people in the know are excited about this is because this form of magnesium is the first one scientists have found that can pass through the blood/brain barrier.
There is a tightly packed wall of cells lining the smallest blood vessels of the brain, the capillaries. There is another row of star-shaped cells called glia that hold the tightly packed wall together.
The barrier is there to let essential nutrients like sugars, fatty acids and amino acids into the brain and keep toxins and infections out. Great idea, huh?
Please listen to Dr Mercola as he explains more about the benefits of magnesium threonate and why this newest form is good for you.
