Why take Magnesium?
Magnesium is an essential mineral needed for countless bodily functions. From an athletic point of view, magnesium is necessary to maintain proper muscle and nerve function, synthesise proteins and play a key part of energy production. Magnesium is required by every organ in the body, especially the heart and kidneys, but magnesium levels can be reduced after periods of training or working out so you will need to increase your intake. Green vegetables, grains and nuts are the key sources of magnesium from food sources, but many of us don’t get enough from diet alone, so supplementation can help ensure a sufficient amount. A deficiency in magnesium can lead to symptoms like cramps and fatigue, delaying recovery. Magnesium helps to regulate the levels of calcium, copper, zinc, potassium, vitamin D, and other important nutrients.
