I posted this in the end of a very old thread where I was not able to sleep the whole night unless I ate 1/2 a bag of white chocolate chips. The only consistent supps I take are 5,000iu VitD and K2 and I wanted to see if anybody else had gotten results like this:
Ok I wanted to post this up to try and help anybody with this same issue I recently started taking 1 capsule (though they recommend 3) of Magnesium L-Threonate (Life Extension Brand) and it has almost completely made my sugar craving go away!! WTF? I was just looking to improve my memory as the other day I mistakingly placed a piece of grass fed steak in one of my kitchen drawers. Idiot.
This is crazy to me because I was taking natural calm and and doing epsom salt baths 3x per week, religiously. Ive also noticed I am more focussed and less sore after lifting and have been able to bump my workout to 3x per week rather than the two days I had been doing.
Only side effect seemed to be going #2 much easier the first couple days. Also I am told that Im sleeping with my mouth wide open now instead of clenched teeth.
Has anybody else experienced this from MgT? Was I simply suffering from a raging Mg deficiency, in spite of the Mg citrate and baths I was taking?
