Magnesium is involved in numerous biological processes, playing an integral role in energy metabolism, as well as muscle and nerve function. For those who are very active and train regularly, ensuring an adequate intake of this mineral is especially important.

In the average adult, over a quarter of the body’s magnesium levels are found the muscles, and around 60% of skeletal tissue is comprised of magnesium. Much like calcium, it is a major component of the bones and teeth; it also contributes to protein and DNA synthesis, as well as the nerve impulse transfer and muscle contractions (including cardiac muscle). Thus, magnesium has the potential to impact exercise performance and muscle growth potential.

Since it is the mineral in chlorophyll – the green pigment found in plants – leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale are great sources, but magnesium can also be found in animal products such as eggs, meat and poultry. For those who exercise frequently and/or follow a special diet, a magnesium supplement is recommended. Albion® Magnesium Bisglycinate from Reflex Nutrition® is a supplement form of magnesium with a high bioavailability (said to be 80%), for a convenient way to meet your nutritional requirements and support your goals.
