It seems there are a few of us around
any idea why it does that Adreno - I might try it
The receptors probably desensitize.
thanks - do you just order if form iherb?
Yes. This is the cheapest one I could find:
I experience the same. Magnesium L-Threonate is strongly stimulating with a prolonged effect. Last year i'd been taking it for 2 months (3-4 capsules 667mg each a day) and for some moment I even lost my sleep at all))) I cut on MgT for a while a I was able to sle again though that stimulating effect persisted for about 2 weeks. I never got the same from even higher dosages (counted Mg2+-wise) of Mg Glycinate etc.
I haven't tried it yet, but Perlmutter's Empowering MagThreonate is combined with glycinate and malate. Maybe there's less of a speedy effect that way:
So far I have not noticed anything from it. I guess I need to take a larger dose...or maybe it just doesn't have that effect on me.
I've been taking it for a couple of weeks in the hopes that it will help deal with suppressing excitotoxicity from what I suspect to be excessive Glutamate. I seem to be having less excitotoxin issues and I don't really notice any stimulant effect either. I take 3-4 Jarrow MagMind capsules per day.
One capsule of LE or SN-branded MgT is 667mg of MgT which is mere 48mg of Mg2+
I experienced what I witnessed above when:
1) I took it more than 2 weeks
2) I took 5 capsules or so which is >3g of MgT therefore 240mg Mg2+, keep in mind that FDA-recommended daily intake for an average adult is 400mg Mg2+ a day (including food intake).
If we consider taking FDA's 400mg Mg2+ in MgT form it's gonna be 8 capsules 667mg MgT each)))
I tried Mg in many forms and I can certainly say that MgT is the most stimulating ever. I am inclined to attribute it also to threonate part per se.
I was wondering if you are still on the Magnesium L-Threonate? If so, can you tell me how you feel it is helping, if you continue to experience a stimulating effect and what your dose is? I think it might be really helpful for me and any follow up info is greatly appreciated. I am experiencing leg aches and cramping from revving up my methylation and the potassium along with other forms of magnesium do not seem to help for very long. I also continue to have a lot of fatigue even on Freddd's methylation protocol. I must be missing something. Thanks so much!
I am on and off MgT. it is stimulating when I take 2000mg or more MgT per day (sometimes 4000 which is 288 Mg2+ which is ok).
At times even too much so)
Sabre Sciences has a MgT product formulated with inositol to lessen the stimulating effect. It's called iMagT Powder. It's hard to find, but AZ sells it. Here are the ingredients:
Is that effect dose dependent? On my bottle a
On my bottle 3 capsules are equivalent to 2000 - so I tried one capsule to make sure I was not going to have a weird reaction and it made me tired - which is what I thought magnesium usually does - relaxes.
One capsule one time is about nothing at all)) You could've get tired just from anything else that happenned to you at that time)
Try at least the recommended 3 capsules for several days and see.
On MgT again. After MgGlycinate that sedated me A LOT
Quite the contrary, MgT is stimulating. I tend to take it several times before 3pm
I am inclined to consider threonate part a potent psychostimulator.
Pity there aren't any research on threonic acid effect on CNS.
One important thing: if you are or have been smoking/quitting - ALWAYS account for that when evaluating any medicine you began taking. Nicotine and nicotine withdrawal is one of the most powerful psychoactive factors.
