Magnesium is a powerhouse mineral. It’s involved in energy production, cell growth, blood pressure, bone health and the functioning of the heart, nerves and muscles. So, pretty much everything an athlete needs to perform at optimum levels.
What happens when we don’t get enough of it? Muscle cramps and weakness, fatigue, poor blood sugar control, elevated blood pressure and nausea, which all equals out to not feeling your best. Also drinking alcohol does a number on your magnesium level.
What’s the best way to keep your magnesium levels up to par? As with most things it all boils down to what you’re fueling your body with. Eat foods rich in magnesium – whole grains, nuts, beans, seeds, fish, avocados, and the tried and true leafy greens. Popeye was right. Spinach really is a superhero choice.
In a perfect world, we are all getting our daily-recommended requirements and tossing back leafy greens and feasting on perfectly prepared salmon for dinner. Right?
For the times when maybe you had a few too many glasses of wine and work has regulated your meals to take out, and what’s in the fridge right now, bringing your balance back in order may be helped with an IV treatment.
Research has found that IV infusions of magnesium may be more effective than oral or intramuscular treatments for correcting nutrient deficits. H2uP Tahoe’s Recoup treatment can help.
