I've read a great deal over the last two years about the this exciting new magnesium which is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and improve memory (short term memory improvements of 18%, and long term increases of 100% in animal studies). I tried it 4 times (by 3 different manufacturers) and couldn't feel any particular benefits. I tried this as a last chance, not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. I prepare this as a tea--it tastes mildly sweet and lemony), and within a few minutes can feel a wave of relaxation washing over me. Nothing terribly dramatic, and I haven't noticed a particular increase in memory (yet). Of course, I've been using magnesium supplements for decades; it's very possible that the effect would be greater on someone not already taking magnesium. The calcium to magnesium ratio in this formula is >3 to 1, so anyone using it would be well advised to take additional magnesium in some form. I believe that nutritional supplements saved my life. I've tried a lot of products, and I know what works and what doesn't. My reviews are honest, straighforward, and based on my experience. Read my other reviews to quickly learn from my three decades of research and experimentation.

Magnesium usually relaxes muscles,so its good to take before going to bed. The L-threonate activates brainfunction so this one I take in the morning or during the day. The lemon flavour goes well with tea.

Great in a fruit smoothie from a very reliable company known as Life Extension.
Heard good things about this form of Mag, but it's not for me

Good brand, fair amount for the price, pleasant lemon flavour and nice fizz... HOWEVER... I get a twinge of pain around my left temple shortly after consuming and it happens every time. I guess from that effect you could conclude it definitely does something but I won't be waiting for any positive results because I've discontinued use on this one.

This has great absorption. I know this because I had terrible trouble with eye twitch and other powder magnesiums were not fixing the problem.
