The miracle mineral for runners

This versatile mineral supports resistance to mental stress and acts as a smooth-muscle relaxant

Magnesium is one of the most plentiful minerals in our bodies and is essential for human life. It plays a central role in almost every bodily process including proper cardiac function, the proper contraction and relaxations of muscles, the production of energy, and so much more. Because magnesium is involved in many important processes in the body, it’s crucial for a runner to have sufficient intake of this crucial mineral.

Here’s how...

Reduces inflammation: Studies have shown that not having enough magnesium can lead to inflammation, which can increase your risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

Stress buster: Nervous about the big race ahead? Magnesium plays a role in regulating the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, our stress response system. It can suppress the release of the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline and prevent stress hormones from entering the brain.

Keep focused: Magnesium is essential for healthy brain and nervous system function which includes attention and focus. A magnesium deficiency can lead to irritability, restlessness, a lack of concentration, and fatigue.

Energy boost: A key role of magnesium is to convert the glucose in food into energy. Therefore, getting enough magnesium can help keep energy levels stable and prevent the onset of tiredness.
