If you are in this situation, don't automatically have your doctor increase your existing high BP medicine dose or let him or her put you on a NEW prescription without doing some tests and knowing what you are doing. I am NOT playing doctor here, however if you read recent my posts on doctors, nurses, pharmaceutical companies and medical errors being the #1 cause of death here in America, you do have the right to get your questions answered.
That being said, what about Magnesium L-Threonate?
- IT is a highly absorbable form of magnesium and plays a big role protecting the aging brain's structure and function and why conventional supplements don't deliver enough magnesium to the brain.
- IT has proven to rebuild ruptured synapses, and restores the degraded neuronal connections observed in Alzheimer's disease and other forms of memory loss.
- Magnesium deficiency can cause symptoms ranging from apathy, and psychosis to memory impairment and slowing brain recovery following injury from trauma and in lab studies accelerates cellular aging.
Sources I TRUST to order from are:
Swanson Vitamins, 1-800-824-4491 offering Doctor's Best Brain Magnesium $24.99 for 30 day supply at time of this blog post.
Life Extension magazine folks, POB 407198, Fort Lauderdale. Florida, 33340-7198 - a little pricey, however in my opinon one of the BEST out there.
From my own research, I THINK this may be more effective than the highly touted PREVAGEN available at Walgreen's etc.. I am NOT a scientist or a doctor, however I DO subscribe to several naturopathic type newsletters and websites.
