Have you ever wondered why you sometimes get muscle cramps after exercise? Or why athletes are prone to taking magnesium supplements?
Magnesium is a mineral that is needed in the body for it to function efficiently. It regulates blood pressure, supports the immune system and helps with brain, nerves, heart and muscle functioning.
But while research shows that magnesium is a natural component of bones in the human body, it is important to take additional magnesium supplements for energy production, increased bone development and muscle recovery.
That is why athletes commonly increase their magnesium intake after training because it helps with the relaxation of their muscles after a gruelling session.
Benefits of Magnesium
Commonly the skeletal system in the body contains an estimated 25 grams of magnesium. Including extra magnesium into your supplements or diet, is encouraged by professionals due to the wide range of benefits it has.
It prevents or relieves migraines and headaches, reduces premenstrual symptoms such as cramps and bloating in females, reduces anxiety and aids a person’s sleep.
There are many different magnesium supplements that one can take, or you can choose to eat foods which are dense in that mineral. Some of these foods include; dark leafy greens, legumes, seeds and whole grains.
