Central Role in Energy Metabolism
Magnesium plays a central role in our energy metabolism and in both our internal and external body processes. To be able to function as human beings, all body cells have energy-rich ATP molecules. ATP initiates countless biochemical responses - a process that takes place thousands of times a day through the release of energy. Magnesium is crucial in the splitting of ATP so that energy can be released. Heavy physical effort increases the number of biochemical reactions, including the physical need for magnesium to release energy.
The importance of Proper Recovery
A common misconception is that the body becomes stronger through sports, but in fact only energy has been spent. Only through a proper (physiological) recovery, that mainly occurs during sleep, the body becomes stronger. Stimulating the recovery of the body to a higher level (in top sport know as super-compensation)is especially enhanced by the use of magnesium.
Without adequate recovery there is no physical top performance (stronger and improved stamina) in the short and long term with the consequence of an over trained body. Besides shortening recovery time, increasing of athletic endurance and improvement of strength performance, magnesium is also a natural muscle relaxer, repairs muscle tissue and reduces muscle fatigue and joint stiffness.
