AIDP, Inc. is pleased to announce the clinical study publication “A Magtein®, Magnesium L-Threonate, Based Formula Improves Brain Cognitive Functions in Healthy Chinese Adults”, in Nutrients on Dec. 8, 2022.

In this double-blind, placebo-controlled study, Magtein®PS, a magnesium L-threonate (Magtein®)- and phosphatidylserine-based formulation additionally containing vitamins C and D, was tested for its cognitive benefits in 109 healthy Chinese adults aged 18–65 years. Subjects were randomly assigned to receive either Magtein®PS or placebo (starch) capsules, at a dose of 2g / day.

“The Clinical Memory Test,” a standard test commonly used in Chinese hospitals and academic institutes for cognitive evaluation, was administered before and 30 days after subjects received the supplement. Subjects receiving Magtein®PS showed significant improvements over the control group in all five subcategories of “The Clinical Memory Test” as well as the overall memory quotient scores.

“This study is the third human clinical publication in healthy adults and validates, Magtein’s cognitive support for a broad age group as well as an ethic group,” said Dr. Jennifer Gu, Vice President of Research and Development at AIDP, Inc. “There is a significant research pipeline for Magtein, and we are pleased with this recent publication.”

Magtein® a patented magnesium l-threonate was introduced into the market in 2014 after scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) reported their discovery that it can effectively deliver magnesium to brain cells as noted in the 2010 publication in the journal Neuron. Magtein® has since grown in popularity and is a highly successful supplement ingredient providing noticeable consumer benefits for cognition, and neurological health including support for mood, sleep, stress and anxiety. Magtein is available exclusively from AIDP, Inc.
