Magnesium is one of most important minerals for sports nutrition but is often overlooked. This page looks at how magnesium can help improve your sports performance, recovery and why transdermal magnesium supplementation should be a key part of any exercise regime.

Magnesium's Role in Sports Performance
Whether you’re a professional athlete or just a casual gym goer, transdermal magnesium supplementation can help you train harder, perform better and recover faster.
Responsible for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body, magnesium plays a fundamental role in muscle contraction, skeletal strength and energy production, helping to sustain the high oxygen consumption necessary for athletic performance.

Key benefits of transdermal magnesium
The BetterYou transdermal magnesium range has been scientifically proven to replace magnesium lost through sweat and the accelerated metabolism of strenuous activity.
Magnesium chloride commences absorption immediately when massaged into the skin, providing a fast and effective method of replenishing magnesium levels.
Find your Magnesi-zen
Exercise is not only good for physical health, but just as importantly can aid mental wellbeing.
When the stresses of daily life begin to take their toll doing something physical, like going for a run, can help reset and refocus the mind. That’s because strenuous physical activity releases endorphins that trigger a positive feeling within the body, reduces the production of stress hormones and generally creates a sense of accomplishment that can leave an overall feeling of relaxation.
As a natural aid to muscle recovery and relaxation, our transdermal magnesium range provides an easy and effective way to soothe tired and aching muscles, creating a feeling of ultimate relaxation, helping you find your Magnesi-zen.
