The secret mineral for performance and recovery...

Perhaps one of the most important minerals for exercise is magnesium. Yet sadly, magnesium is severely underused by most sports trainers, athletes and even practicing sports physicians.

Magnesium plays a pivotal role throughout your body during and after exercise. In fact, even a small shortfall in magnesium status can inhibit your exercise performance.

Magnesium is involved in numerous processes that help optimize your performance:

  • Maximize protein synthesis: Protein synthesis is how you build lean muscle mass and it requires ample magnesium to function properly 1.*
  • Energy metabolism: ATP (adenosine triphosphate) -- your cells main source of energy -- must bind to magnesium ions in your body to be biologically active 2.*
  • Oxygen uptake: Magnesium may improve oxygen delivery to working muscle tissue 3.*
  • Electrolyte balance: Magnesium helps regulate levels of some of the most common electrolytes such as calcium, potassium, zinc and copper 4.*
  • Enhance muscle recovery: Magnesium is necessary for normal muscle contraction and relaxation. Low magnesium levels are often associated with increased muscle cramps 5.*

One of the best things you can do to prepare your body for exercise and assist recovery is by getting plenty of magnesium.
