      I just wondered if anyone here has supplemented with magnesium l-threonate, simply because it supposedly has better brain absorption.

      Since a lot on here already take mag, I'd be curious to hear people's opinions on this form of it.

      I use a topical magensium spray. it has improved my hyperacusis and lowered my T, been using it about 3 weeks. But I did have reason to believe I was deficient.

      That's funny, I just read a thread on a different forum the other day where a guy claims he was able to lower his tinnitus quite a bit with with 700mg Magnessium Citrate a day.

      Here's the link if anybody's curious:

      I bought some, but whenever I take I feel weird. Hard to explain. I also took 200mg of it last night and noticed a difference in my T within a couple hours. It wasn't any more quiet at all, but it felt like my T moved... like the position of it moved from directly in front of my ears to above my ears. Truly odd.

      I'm trying it again (malate this time) but I think that mg makes my t worse.
      This is the only form I haven't tried.

      I heard people with H say it improves their H but spikes their T?

      I found an article in CNN about magnesium levels in the brain helping tinnitus. I remembered I tried, L-Threonate before but unfortunately, I combined it with some other stuff (can't remember what now) and my brain felt cool. After that I got scared and haven't taken it again. That was sometime last year I think. I may give it another go, this time without all that other stuff. The article is here:

      You can make your own magnesium oil: https://wellnessmama.com/5804/magnesium-oil/
      My opinion is that it doesn't help with T or H, it might if you were deficient, like noisebox.
