Magnesium is... your post workout buddy
If you work out regularly, magnesium is definitely a nutrient that you don’t want to be lacking in. Sweating gets rid of key electrolytes in the body, including magnesium. These need to be replaced after a gym session, especially if it was a fairly intense one. 💪🏼
Magnesium helps the muscles to relax post-workout, which counteracts the role that calcium plays in contracting the muscles. 🏃🏽♀️ A lack of magnesium can upset this delicate balance and you’re likely to feel the effects of this as sore muscles. ⚖️ If you don’t replace the magnesium you lose while you’re working out, your muscles find it harder to recover.
