Magnesium helps draw lactic acid and other toxins out of the muscles and joints, helping to enhance the repair process. The pure salt form is quickly absorbed relaxing and calming muscles and nerves and helping to relax blood vessels and provides comfort from joint and muscle pains.
Energy Production and Reduced Fatigue
Magnesium is responsible for the production of ATP, our bodys most important and efficient energy phosphate compound. Magnesium replenishment reduces fatigue, heat exhaustion and is essential for blood sugar control.
Joint and Muscle Pain
Magnesium works alongside calcium in the body, to regulate muscular contraction and relaxation. Calcium contracts muscles, magnesium relaxes them. After intense periods of exrcise, there is an increased risk of muscle spasm and the pain that accompanies it. Magnesium oil can help to reduce this when sprayed directly on to the affected area.
Magnesium is fundamental in the process of ensuring calcium is absorbed by the body to enter the bone. Magnesium deficiency can reduce calcium solubility and so restrict bone entry.
