I've taken these for a few months now. Not working as fast as I'd like them to, but I do believe they are making some difference.

Magnesium Threonate in combination with Alpha GPC
I was willing to give the Magnesium Threonate and Alpha GPC a serious try for a few weeks, and now I have been using them daily for several months. It took a couple weeks, but when they kicked in, the increased level of focus, energy, memory retention, and cognitive ability makes them worth the price, which by the way, is considerably cheaper with Swansons fine brand.
Before, my stressful hospital job had frazzled my nerves and exausted my mind to the point where I was forgetting numbers I had seen moments before. (I would like to point out I am in my mid 50s'). Now, I'm doing serious studies and retaining (AND understanding!) things that I never understood before using these great supplements.
I recommend them to the stressed- out worker, the student, and anyone else who wants a large improvement in their cognitive abilty. Whereas it is true, not all supplements will work for everyone, these have a growing reputation, and are well worth a try. Just allow them a few weeks to begin their good work, like any good supplement usually needs..
These supplements ROCK!

Although the L-threonate form of magnesium is new on the market, it has impressive clinical evidence of it's ability to dramatically improve synaptic density and neuronal plasticity.

Good value on mag threonate. Taken at bedtime to help relax.

This product, for me it would require several bottles to really test its efficacy toward its proposed goal & usefulness, I can't tell a difference. maybe the formula is Weak!

After reading exciting reviews about magnesium-L-threonate and the possibility of improved memory function I was most anxious to try it. As usual, I went to Swanson's as a trusted source and for pricing that would be more than competitive. As a 55 yr. old menopausal women, I found this product very helpful and have made it part of my daily extensive Swanson regiment.

Did not work for me
I have taken Magtein magnesium for three months at 3 capsules per day. I did not find any noticeable difference in memory. This product has been only tested on animals and not on humans. I went back to my regular old magnesium. This product is too expensive for its purported benefits. I do not recommend.

I wouldn't discourage others from trying this supplement, even though I didn't notice any benefit. I do take other forms of magnesium daily - maybe I didn't need this - I don't know. It didn't improve my brain function.

Does what it is supposed to do, and quite well.

why the confusing label?
There is no where on the packaging that indicates simply exactly how many gm/mg PER CAPSULE. there is just a chart on how much and percentages you would be getting in am dose and pm dose. Which is divided into Magnesium(from Magtein magnesium L-threonate) AND Magtein magnesium L-threonate. I am not new to deciphering supplement bottles, but find this one very confusing and hard to compair side by side for what I am getting.

better than expected results
bought this to help me with my cognition and production of brain neurotransmitters. This has greatly improved my quality of sleep, calmness throughout the day and overall mood has improved. Swanson products are the best around.

Brain fog cleared!
I have been taking Swanson's Magnesium L-Threonate for about two months and definitely feel that my brain is sharper and firing on all cylinders. It helps my work and I think and act more quickly. I will make Swanson's Magnesium L-Threonate one of my daily supplements indefinitely. Although fairly pricey, Swanson's is the best deal and quality on the market. Brain fog? Gone!

works for me!
I've been taking this product as recommended for about 3 months. I noticed that my mind was much clearer and more focused and alert within a day or two after taking my first dose. Before taking this product I felt the need to take a nap almost every afternoon. That need is now gone. Before taking this product I would rarely dream when asleep at night. I am now dreaming again. I am definitly thankful for this product and will continue ordering it.

Enhanced Mental Clarity
After taking this with Pterostilbene for a month, I'm a believer. My mental clarity and focus are better than they have been in my whole life.
I wish I could get this with the Pterostilbene already added. Priceless.

Best purchase from Swanson ever.
I am 72 years old, retired and work from my home as a day trader, and have been taking this supplement for three weeks. After remaining nearly inactive in the stock market for the past six months, due to the inability to think clearly. I am now trading and making money again. My sleep is deep with very vivid dreams, and my mind is clear. This product is well worth its money, and I plan to order again.

I have been taking this supplement for three weeks. I am not quite sure what to expect. The one thing that I do know is that my sleep is deep with very vivid dreams. I think after a few months I would be able to conclude if the product is worth the money. I will continue since I have read the research on this product. I will know more soon....

You need to take this product for at least a month to start seeing results. I've read several papers on this product and it does cross the blood brain barrier. Like I said, give it a month to see real results, especially if you are over 40 years old.

Magtein Magnesium L-Threonate
I have been taking this product for about 1 month. I feel less scattered, have an improved ability to rememeber things and in general seem more in control. In addtion, my sleep has improved. It is a much deeper sleep than before. I would recommend this product. I am 53.

Worth a Try
I am grateful to Swanson for bringing this news and product into my life. I do not trust buying from "other" sources who do not appear to be directly linked with the researcher that developed the product. Therefore, I have faith in Swanson to provide a pure and safe product. I hope the label reflects the physical values in the caps.

I've been using magnesium daily all my life. All types have been calming for the brain, nerves and also good for bowel movement. Magnesium L-Threonate was suppose to be special since it crosses the brain barrier. It did nothing for me at all. Could'nt even notice I ever took it. Don't waist your money on this product. I will not be ordering this product again.
