MagMind is a magnesium supplement with Magtein, which can enhance the general health of your brain and improve memory. It comes from California company Jarrow Formulas, founded over 30 years ago. They’re one of the older and more active supplement companies in business. Their products have a lot of positive reviews and many have won awards over the years. They even show when updates have been made. Some products might need changes as new research develops, and Jarrow does say they work closely with people who would be in the know. Their in-house medical and nutrition panel also helps to keep efficiency and safety high.
MagMind contains the following ingredients: Magnesium L-Threonate (Magtein), Cellulose, magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and silicon dioxide, capsule consists of gelatin.
Capsules have 48 mg of elemental magnesium (from Magtein Magnesium L-Threonate). Magtein is a new form of magnesium, a unique compound discovered by a group of MIT scientists. They call the patented compound “a breakthrough super-mineral.” There are several published studies about it, discussing how it works and why it’s beneficial for cognitive function. Initial studies were on animals. The first study showed how Magtein improved brain function through increasing its magnesium levels. It has the potential to increasing learning ability and memory in animals and humans. The most common forms of magnesium don’t appear to effectively penetrate the blood brain barrier, so many of the mineral’s benefits may be lost in consumption.
Magtein is said to be an effective alternative to other magnesium supplements, and you can safely take higher doses of it. Side effects can include slight drowsiness, dizziness, and minor headaches. These normally appear only during the first couple of weeks of taking Magtein, and go away after your brain adjusts to the supplement. You can also take fewer capsules at first, to allow your brain to gradually adjust. You can take capsules with food, water, or right before bed. If you have kidney problems, you probably shouldn’t take mineral supplements. It’s best to ask your doctor before buying magnesium.
- A lot of people have minor magnesium deficiencies and don’t even realize it. For instance, about half the US population is thought to have a magnesium deficiency. A supplement like this will help cover most people, in addition to providing other possible benefits.
- One serving is 3 capsules, which is more than many people will want to bother with. Most would prefer to take just 1 capsule if possible, in which case the concentration of magnesium should be increased. Capsules of 80 to 100 mg makes more sense than 48 mg each. It’s also a relatively small amount of magnesium per capsule, compared to the recommended daily amount.
Human studies are still being conducted, including at least one of high quality. So far, supposedly people report improved focus, memory, judgment, mood, and energy. Some reviewers say the capsules give them a relaxed state of mind. Since everyone has unique biochemistry and different levels of magnesium in their blood, your results may vary, but this could be a solution you’re looking for.
