Magnesium is essential in over 800 different enzymatic functions in our body. It’s found throughout the body in our bones, hearts, muscles, and nerves, and works away inside every one of our cells. Its responsibilities include synthesizing DNA, RNA, and proteins, maintaining muscle function, creating cellular energy, and ensuring proper nerve function just to name a few. Magnesium is an essential mineral, meaning we need to continually replenish our body’s supply for it to carry out its important functions. Despite that, nearly half of Canadians aren’t getting enough. Magnesium deficiency can show up in various ways – stress, difficulty concentrating, inflammation, mood changes, migraine, fatigue, and insomnia among others. 

Research suggests that when magnesium is bound to threonic acid to form magnesium threonate, it reaches brain cells more effectively than other forms of magnesium. Magnesium’s important functions in the brain include nerve signal transmission and maintaining ionic stability. As part of these functions, magnesium is considered an antagonist of calcium. Too much calcium in brain cells can make cells overly active and potentially cause neurons to die, which can lead to further neurodegenerative outcomes. The brain uses magnesium to move calcium along and support various functions that are crucial for learning and memory, and magnesium threonate has proven to pass the blood-brain barrier very effectively.  

Each capsule of CanPrev’s Magnesium Threonate provides 50mg of magnesium sourced from magnesium L-threonate to help in energy metabolism, tissue formation, muscle function, and overall health.
