Magnesium and your Body. Four facts You Never Knew!

Multi-Tasking Magnesium

 

Magnesium is an all round hero nutrient needed for hundreds of reactions and functions in your body, including :

  • Energy creation: Helps convert food into energy.

  • Protein formation: Helps create new proteins from amino acids.

  • Gene maintenance: Helps create and repair DNA and RNA.

  • Muscle movements: Is part of the contraction and relaxation of muscles.

  • Nervous system regulation: Helps regulate neurotransmitters, which send messages throughout your brain and nervous system.

Boost Exercise Performance

 During exercise, you may actually need 10–20% more magnesium than when you're resting, depending on the activity.

Magnesium helps move blood sugar into your muscles and dispose of lactic acid, which can build up in muscles during exercise.
