Magnesium is not just another element on the periodic table that you needed to memorize in your high school chemistry class and obviously here we’re not talking about magnesium in its metallic state. Our muscles desperately need the mineral Magnesium otherwise they would constantly be in a state of contraction and our bodies would not be able to properly produce energy. The thing is, so many of us have a hard time getting enough Magnesium into our diets and suffer the consequences of muscle soreness or tightness, spasms, and inflexibility. This is why we have made Magnesium the next supplement included in our EPIC product line.

Our bodies naturally contain about 25g of Magnesium between our bones, blood and soft tissues but it is recommended adults get up to an additional 300-450mg depending on gender and age.

Since Magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical reactions and impacts almost all systems of the body we could be here all day listing the many reasons your body needs to supplement its Magnesium supply. But we won’t make you wait around all day ;) Instead here are just some of the benefits you can expect to see when you introduce more Magnesium into your routine.

More Energy

Magnesium supports the production of energy because it is required in the process of making ATP- this is energy management on the cellular level! This is one of Magnesium’s primary roles within the body and the most commonly recognized benefit. On top of this, Magnesium supports the nervous system and aids in sleep (ideal for those suffering from insomnia). More sleep = more energy.

Less Muscle Tension/Pain

This mineral is also known to alleviate muscle tension and support optimal muscle function by reducing lactic acid and regulating the body’s pH level. It is a required element of muscle relaxation so helps eliminate soreness, tenderness, and muscle fatigue allowing you to recover quickly. It has also been proven to mitigate pain felt with headaches and migraines.

Improves Cognitive Ability

Magnesium has been linked to aiding in all kinds of brain health activity from memory potential to learning abilities by maximizing various functions of the brain. It also helps to regulate mood and stress addressing concerns revolving around depression and anxiety by stimulating serotonin production.

Better Digestion

Through enzyme activation, energy transportation and protein synthesis, Magnesium plays an important part in digesting food. Magnesium deficiency is related to both sides of the spectrum affecting those suffering from constipation, IBD, and chronic diarrhea. Increasing your Magnesium intake can help you have healthy poops :)

Our Magnesium is Health Canada-certified and we only use the best select ingredients to maximize its benefits. Being one of the most common world-wide deficiencies, it’s imperative you make Magnesium a must in your supplement regime. We recommend it especially for people who suffer from muscle soreness and tension. As you progress in your fitness journey and your workouts continue to challenge you, Magnesium will become more and more important in helping your muscles cope.
