If you’re sweating it out at the gym or in the waves… take magnesium. If you’re guzzling down the coffee and feeling tense and uptight… take magnesium. If your legs are cramping up and your muscles are achey and sore… take magnesium. If you’re constipated or have headaches… take magnesium. If you wake up in the morning and still feel exhausted… take magnesium.
this bloke knows how important nutrition, hydration and muscle health is.. working well for him so far
When you sweat, you need to top up on electrolytes, not just water. Electrolytes are the minerals sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. If you don’t you can really cramp up and create a whole host of other deficiencies.
When it comes to supplements, you get what you pay for. If it’s on special on the supermarket shelves, ask yourself why. So I’d suggest getting some BioCeuticals Ultra Muscleze powder or Fusion Magnesium tablets. Don’t even get me started on Gatorade…
I buy this from Emma’s shop “Essential Health” and guzzle it 2 times a day… couldn’t live without the stuff!!
Is there anything magnesium DOESN’T do?? Well it won’t vacuum the house and cook dinner for you on your day off… but that’s what husbands are for right?
Hook into cashews, parsnips, coconut water, rolled oats and pink Himalayan salt. You can also add one cup of Epsom salts to a hot bath to revive your tired muscles and help you have a restful sleep
