What is Magnesium?
Magnesium is an essential nutrient. Crucial for skeletal strength, normalised muscle function, energy production and the body’s ability to detox and relax. It is a responsible for over 300 chemical actions within the body and associated with thousands more.
Magnesium was first discovered outside of the Greek city of Magnesia, and was used curatively as early as ancient times. Then, in the 1600’s, water from the famous Epsom spring discovered in England was a popular curative, used as an internal remedy and purifier of the blood, still used now and better known in the form of Epsom Salts.
A body with sufficient magnesium will be more supple, will resist fatigue for longer and will be able to better repair itself. It is therefore incredibly beneficial for exercise recovery, for all sportspeople and those with achy muscles. For example, Ali Robinson, a Professional Triathlete, includes transdermal magnesium in his race preparation and recovery routines.
Habitually low magnesium levels can lead to or increase the likelihood of conditions such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes (possibly due to the important role of magnesium in glucose metabolism), osteoporosis (due to its role in vitamin D concentrations), and migraines.
