Magnesium, improves athletic performance and accelerates recovery
Magnesium plays a key role in metabolism and supports muscle function (contraction, relaxation). Sport accelerates metabolism. This is why athletes need more magnesium than people with sedentary lifestyles. Magnesium has a beneficial effect on the functioning of the skeletal muscles and the heart muscle. Studies in athletes show that magnesium intake has a significant influence on performance, contraction strength, muscle recovery and the development of cramps.

Magnesium promotes sleep
Insomnia is common among the general population and increases from the age of 40. Insomnia has an important impact on the quality of life, reduces performance, negatively influences emotions, increases the risk of accidents, can lead to mood swings and disrupts social life.
Stress, tension and anxiety are factors that promote the development of sleep complaints. Clinical research shows that magnesium improves sleep patterns. One possible reason is the influence of magnesium on melatonin, the sleep hormone.

Clinical research shows that magnesium deficiency plays an important role in the development of migraine. The main causes of magnesium deficiency in this form of headache are stress, low dietary magnesium intake, insufficient magnesium absorption and excessive magnesium excretion through the kidneys. Taking all these facts into account, it is highly recommended to take sufficient magnesium in migraine. Magnesium reduces the number, duration and severity of attacks.
