Magnesium is one of most important mineral for sports nutrition, however, many athletes remain unaware of its critical importance in maintaining health and performance.
Magnesium plays a fundamental role in optimal muscle contraction, skeletal strength and energy production, helping to sustain the high oxygen consumption necessary for athletic performance.
The BetterYou™ transdermal magnesium range has been scientifically guaranteed to replace magnesium lost through sweat and the accelerated metabolism of strenuous activity faster than any digestive form. Magnesium is delivered with optimal absorption directly into the skin tissue, with cellular uptake commencing immediately, effectively feeding muscles allowing them to recover naturally and speedily.
Without magnesium, it is impossible for the body to produce adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), the universal currency of aerobic energy within the body, highly efficient and effective. Low magnesium levels will mean the body begins to produce energy anaerobically, by burning glucose, an inefficient process, the by-product of which is lactic acid.
