The Importance of Magnesium for Muscle Recovery
Magnesium chloride has also been making waves in the health and fitness world too, with people recognizing its powerful rejuvenating properties.
Magnesium is required by almost every cell in our body and is especially important to cells in our muscles, particularly during exercise and for post-exercise recovery.
When you exercise, your body’s magnesium levels drop rapidly. This is because it is an electrolyte that is used to conduct electrical impulses and action potentials, such as the contraction of a muscle. When you stop exercising, magnesium continues working, preventing muscles from cramping and spasming, replenishing red blood cells (which have been hard at work providing your body with oxygen). It even plays a role in reducing inflammation
When you take a magnesium salt bath after exercise, the minerals in the water are absorbed into your body transdermally. As a result, blood magnesium levels are replenished directly via the skin, helping to relax muscles, reduce cramping and spasms, restore red blood cells and reduce inflammation.
