Magnesium Benefits for Athletes
“How magnesium works in the muscle and can improve your performance, exercise, and strength.”
In our recent search for expanding our demographic and new applications for our magnesium oil, we have found that Magnesoothe is a perfect fit for the sports world!
Magnesoothe has been tried and tested among everyone from Baseball Pitchers, Football Players, Swimmers, Runners and Bodybuilders! The results have been nothing less than amazing. The age range and performance level has been everything from High School, to College, and on to the Professional level.
Runners and Swimmers have seen a significant increase in their lap performance and speed.
In Pitchers and Football Players, we have seen injury recovery time dramatically shortened, performance levels increased, cramps reduced or even eliminated, and stamina/energy levels increased.
For Bodybuilders, they have told us that it has reduced or eliminated muscle burn and allows them to get a much deeper workout. It has helped with their sore muscles, cramps, energy, and injury recovery as well.
Why does Magnesoothe work in these areas for athletes who should have a body that is already at peak performance? In our research, we have found studies showing that magnesium plays a vital role in the performance of any muscles in the body including the Heart.
Magnesium plays an important role in the contraction and relaxation of muscles; it is responsible for the delivery of potassium and calcium across those cell membranes in the muscle, which are directly responsible for the conduction of nerve impulses, muscle contraction and the normal rhythm of your heart. Adequate levels of magnesium and potassium will reduce the chances of having muscle spasms or cramps. The easiest way to apply magnesium is through transdermal application.
Magnesium is also essential for maintaining muscle strength throughout life. Evidence from athletes supports a role for magnesium in avoiding damage to muscle cells.
Recent research, from the University of Palermo, has shown a significant relationship between measures of muscle strength - grip strength, lower-leg muscle power, knee rotation, and ankle strength and magnesium.
In another study, researchers report that a loss of magnesium may contribute to loss of muscle mass in older people. Muscle strength testing and function were evaluated in over 1,100 men and women with an average age of 67.
The researchers found there was a very strong relationship between magnesium levels and muscle function after adjusting for other factors. They reported that individuals with higher magnesium levels generally had a stronger hand grip, more power in their legs and were able to extend their knees and ankles with more force.
When it comes to energy, magnesium is a must. ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the main source of energy in cells, must be bound to a magnesium ion in order to be biologically active.
So, as we continue to see, Magnesium is the Body's Master Mineral and has the upmost importance when it comes to the functions of our muscles. These are the reasons why we believe we have gotten such amazing results with athletes.
