BetterYou is proud to be the official performance and recovery partner of rugby league team, Leeds Rhinos.
BetterYou have teamed up with the Rugby Super League Champions to help them harness the power of magnesium and other vitamins to help enhance their training, recovery and performance.
This unique partnership sees that BetterYou provide the players with key nutrients and minerals, including magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin K2 and vitamin B12 - which are often missing from diets - to improve their performance using the most innovative methods available.
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for sports nutrition, however many athletes are unaware of its role in maintaining health and performance.
It is vital for optimal muscle contraction, skeletal strength, energy production and assists in sustaining the high oxygen consumption necessary for athletic performance.
Without magnesium, it is impossible for the body to produce adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), the universal currency of energy within the body. By facilitating oxygen delivery to the muscle tissues after exercise, performance is improved and recovery time is dramatically reduced.
The mineral helps relieve tight and cramped muscles and dramatically reduces the potential onset of future cramping.
Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include:
We’re proud to be supporting a local club who are at the top of their game. It’s fascinating to see how building our transdermal magnesium and oral vitamin spray products into their daily routine, can impact on the players athletic performance, recovery and even quality of sleep.
Elite athletes have long been passionate advocates of the power of our magnesium products. Athletic endurance and strength performance increase significantly when a large amount of magnesium is given to the body. Even a small shortfall in magnesium intake can seriously impair athletic performance and increase chance of injury.
By building a performance and recovery routine using our Magnesium Bath Flakes, Sprays, Gel and Lotion, the players are able to easily absorb high amounts of this vital mineral through the skin without experiencing the laxative effect which is often associated with high dosage oral supplementation.
To maximise performance, it’s important for the players to know that they are getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals.
BetterYou is responsible for testing the team’s levels, which gives their performance and conditioning coaches an insight into the vitamin and mineral breakdown of each player.
We test the player’s magnesium levels using Mineral Check, to identify mineral deficiencies, excesses and toxicity.

We also test the team’s vitamin D level’s using our Vitamin D Home Test Kit, provided by Sandwell and West Birmingham City Hospital NHS Trust.
The BetterYou transdermal magnesium range has been scientifically proven to replace magnesium lost through sweat and the accelerated metabolism of strenuous activity faster than any digestive form.
The pure magnesium chloride is applied directly to the skin and is then delivered directly into the skin tissue, effectively feeding the muscle cells and allowing them to recover naturally.
Studies have also shown that magnesium absorbed through the skin works five times faster than tablets.
The superior quality of magnesium chloride is what guarantees such an excellent level of absorption.
The magnesium products can be used pre-activity to problem areas, during activity for relief from cramping and muscle pain, and post activity for recovery.
