2. Brain Plasticity
Here’s one you might not have heard of conversely. Brain plasticity describes the ability of the brain to grow and change shape in response to its experiences and learning. This occurs through the growth of new neurons and the formation of new connections between those neurons.
Brain plasticity can help us to prevent age-related cognitive decline and will also improve your ability to quickly learn new skills. With enough magnesium, you might just be able to teach an old dog new tricks!
Note that in this case, getting your magnesium from supplements might actually be the most effective option. That’s because magnesium ‘threonate’ has been shown to more effectively reach the brain than other types.
