The research spearheaded by Dr. Guosong Liu, one of the world's leading cognitive health researchers, suggested that elevation of brain magnesium through dietary intake of magnesium threonate exerts substantial positive effects on brain synapes in a mouse model of AD, actually restoring aging brains to their youthful conditions.

"The body of our peer-reviewed and published work underscores that magnesium threonate can help maintain healthy brain activity. There is no doubt that magnesium threonate has dramatic effects in preventing synapse loss and reversing memory decline in mice with Alzheimer's disease," Liu said.

The study is expected to be published in a leading peer-reviewed journal in 2014.
