Magnesium fulfils various functions in the body and is necessary for more than 325 enzyme reactions. However its most important function is the production of aerobic and anaerobic energy, particularly in the metabolism of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a basic energy source for the body.
Magnesium deficiency can lead to the following symptoms:
- Muscular cramps, muscular spasms or tremors
- Regular or excessive fatigue
- Restless leg syndrome (anxiety) at night
- Irritable state and/or lethargic
- Frequent mood changes, including depression
- Premenstrual bloating.
Therefore, maintaining optimal levels of magnesium in the body when practising endurance sports is fundamental for sporting performance. For this reason we have a supplement of magnesium and potassium, accompanied with vitamin B6 in order to facilitate the assimilation of nutrients.
Magnesium Liquid Plus contains 250mg per vial and it is recommended to take 1 vial every 60 minutes of physical activity. During long duration physical activities, you can take a vial once every 30 minutes after the 3rd hour.
