Magnesium – the Vital Muscle Mineral



Muscle cramps during exercise


Magnesium is a vitally important mineral that’s involved in over 300 functions in the body - one of the most important being muscle relaxation. If you suffer from one or more of the below you may need more magnesium: These symptoms may occur because your muscles don’t have enough magnesium to relax properly, boosting your magnesium levels may help relax your muscles (and your mind).

Muscle cramps – Help flip the “relax” switch

Magnesium helps switch the nerve signal that allows your muscle to unwind, if there isn’t enough magnesium to flip the switch, muscles remain tight for too long, blood flow is restricted and cramping can occur. Tell your muscle to relax and go with the flow with magnesium.

Tense or tender? Loosen up!

Tight/sore neck and shoulders? Aching muscles? Muscle pain after exercise? One of the first signs that magnesium levels are low is muscle tension or tenderness. A high-quality, high-strength magnesium supplement daily may help your muscles loosen up and relieve the pain of tight/tender muscles. If stress is contributing to your tension, magnesium may be able to help there as well!



Tense, sore neck muscles


Migraines or headaches? The natural solution

Do headaches or migraines regularly put you out of action? Scientific studies have found that people who frequently get headaches or migraines often have low magnesium levels. This is because constant neck/shoulders muscle tension can restrict blood flow to the brain - leaving your head screaming out in pain. Daily magnesium supplementation has been shown to reduce the frequency and duration of headaches and migraines - wouldn’t you prefer prevention rather than relying on strong (and potentially harsh) medications to ease the symptoms once it’s too late?
