Endurance athletes you need to know…

If you’re a specialist athlete into endurance sports then you will be aware of your body’s higher nutrient requirements.

Magnesium is one of those nutrients. High-performance athletes have a faster turnover of energy, use their muscles more, put greater stress on their bones and sweat more, so it stands to reason they require more magnesium.

Magnesium is an electrolyte — the importance of replenishing your body of it after you’ve been sweating for an extended period of time can not be stressed enough.

According to Fuelnutrition.com “Magnesium is one of the most important nutrients for athletes who want to maximize athletic performance. It’s involved in optimizing strength, energy metabolism and protein synthesis—all key factors for athletic success. Magnesium also has a protective effect against stress and may enhance recovery from intense exercise.”

Where they go wrong is of course by recommending oral magnesium because as we mention often, it’s rather pointless as most is lost in the gut.

Due to industrial farming practices, most soil is lacking in nutrients, which translates into fewer nutrients in our food. Therefore, using a transdermal spray, roll on or flakes is the best way to get the results you want and it works real quick too.
