MAGICAL, MAGNIFICENT, MAGNESIUM!
Magnesium is one of seven essential macrominerals that the human body needs in large quantities. Here’s the catch, our bodies don’t produce it. It must come from outside sources. Here’s the extra catch… Most Americans don’t get enough of it! It's estimated that at least half ( some say 70%) of Americans are deficient in this critical mineral, due to stress and our modern diet—which typically consists of food grown in mineral-deficient soil. It's dizzying to see how many medical conditions can be attributed to magnesium deficiency. Things like migraines, depression, kidney stones, asthma, obesity, chronic fatigue, osteoporosis, IBS, insomnia, and even menstrual cramps have all been associated with magnesium deficiency.
Here's the good news.Magnesium is kind of our thing. All Peace Love Rally products are loaded with it!
Magnesium is one of the only minerals that can be absorbed transdermally.In addition to being ingested, it can also be applied directly to your skin, promoting better health (lowering risk of the yucky stuff listed above) and aiding in stress reduction, better sleep, muscle recovery, and pain relief. And since topical magnesium also bypasses digestion, higher doses of this key mineral can be delivered.
It's super important for all moving bodies!
While imperative to overall whole-body health, Magnesium is also an athlete's best friend (well, maybe second best—after dogs.) It’s effects on muscle function, recovery, and performance are huge.
