Train Harder and Stronger with Mg12’s Magnesium Products
Whether you’re a powerlifter or CrossFit junkie, Spartan competitor or bodybuilder, quality strength workouts are essential to your success. Injuries, pain, muscle cramps, or DOMS can put a kink in your training routine, or even leave you on the sidelines. That’s where Mg12’s magnesium products come in.
Why Athletes Use Mg12
Athletes are at greater risk for a mineral deficiency, and that is particularly true for magnesium. One reason is because one of the easiest ways to lose magnesium is through sweat. As you sweat, you’re losing magnesium and other vital minerals. In addition, you’ll be sweating out electrolytes, and of course water, too. These losses mean that a ratio of calcium to magnesium will be changing in the body. The percentage of calcium will increase, and since calcium is a muscle contractor, the muscles cramp.
The RDA for magnesium is about 400 mg of elemental magnesium. Nevertheless, many people need much more than that. If you don’t have sufficient amounts of magnesium within the body, you can experience heart palpitations, leg cramps, and twitchy muscles. However, if you take a daily dose all at one time in pill form, the magnesium can overwhelm your intestines and cause a laxative effect.
One of the best ways to use magnesium chloride is transdermally absorbed through the skin. This is absorbed slowly and effectively into your body instead of running through your intestines.
The need for magnesium will vary from person to person. Don’t be surprised if you need a certain amount of the mineral while others need twice as much. Also, there is a greater requirement for magnesium during periods of stress, heavy athletic activity, or physical work. The best way to achieve a healthy magnesium level, even during times of excess stress of activity, is with daily usage of transdermal magnesium.
