Magnesium is an important mineral, playing a role in over 300 enzyme reactions in the human body. Its many functions include helping with muscle and nerve function, regulating blood pressure, and supporting the immune system.
Mechanism of Action
During exercise, carbohydrates, fats, and protein are broken down sequentially to provide energy and support muscle movement. The underlying mechanism of Mg-induced strength improvement is possibly due to the function of Mg in protein synthesis and energy metabolism, contributing to the process of muscle contraction and relaxation. Additional Mg supply may decrease the oxygen requirements for muscle cells during exercise, leading to optimization of physical movements.
- Improve exercise performance
- Decrease the accumulation of lactate (high lactate levels means insufficient oxygen reaching muscles)
- Increase muscle strength
