Having enough motivation to get to the gym is just half the battle. In order to crush your training session, you also need energy.
You may think drinking your morning cup of coffee and scarfing down a banana is all you need, but there’s much more to it than that.
Proper levels of magnesium are necessary to produce anaerobic and aerobic energy.(1)
If you expect to have the energy required to accomplish your workout, your body needs access to adequate magnesium. And if you work out regularly, your body uses more magnesium than it would for a non-exerciser, which means you need an even higher intake of magnesium to maintain healthy levels!
While you exercise, your body shifts around its magnesium stores to accommodate the activity. And if you don’t have enough? Studies show that it can actually hinder your athletic performance. (2) If you train or compete on any competitive level, something as simple as magnesium deficiency could hold you back from performing at your best.
That won’t do!
Especially since it’s an easy fix. Supplementing with magnesium oil on a consistent basis can help you reach your goals in the gym and recover properly at home.
Once you knock out your workout, there’s a certain level of self-care that you need to do to make sure you recover well. Proper hydration, stretching, icing… it’s all part of the scene.
But, adding magnesium oil to your recovery routine is going to change the game. Your friends will be begging you to tell them your secret.
3 Reasons For Post-Workout Magnesium
1) While you exercise, your body releases cortisol (the stress hormone). Working out is “good” stress, but you want to bring your body back to a normal hormonal balance once you’ve left the gym. Supplementing with magnesium can help your body reduce cortisol levels. (3)
2) Have you ever found yourself avoiding the stairs after “Leg Day”? We get it. Fortunately, magnesium oil is a natural muscle relaxant and when applied to sore muscles it can promote recovery and reduce soreness.(3)
3) You’ll sleep like a baby. Sometimes, even when our body is exhausted and needs rest, our minds race and keep us up. Magnesium oil can help calm your mind so that you can get the sleep you need to recover (and get back in the gym) fast!
