Magnesium In Sport
Magnesium is one of most important mineral for sports nutrition, however, many athletes remain unaware of its critical importance in maintaining health and performance. Magnesium plays a fundamental role in optimal muscle contraction, skeletal strength and energy production, helping to sustain the high oxygen consumption necessary for athletic performance. Key benefits of transdermal magnesium The BetterYou™ transdermal magnesium range has been scientifically guaranteed to replace magnesium lost through sweat and the accelerated metabolism of strenuous activity faster than any digestive form. Magnesium is delivered with optimal absorption directly into the skin tissue, with cellular uptake commencing immediately, effectively feeding muscles allowing them to recover naturally and speedily. Energy production Without magnesium, it is impossible for the body to produce adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), the universal currency of aerobic energy within the body, highly efficient and effective. Low magnesium levels will mean the body begins to produce energy anaerobically, by burning glucose, an inefficient process, the by-product of which is lactic acid. Informed Sport BetterYou™ are proud to be involved with the Informed-Sport initiative giving athletes confidence in our products. The programme provides assurance that products have been tested for substances on the World Anti-Doping Agency list of banned substances. Products undergo rigorous testing at an ISO 17025 accredited lab to provide the highest level of assurance that they are safe for athletes to use. Unsurpassed quality The BetterYou™ MagnesiumOil range uses the purest and most easily absorbed form of magnesium known – magnesium chloride. Mined from European sea deposits over 250 million years old and one mile underground, unlike mineral salts from open water, the natural process of filtering and condensing produces a superior quality magnesium product which is guaranteed free from man-made pollutants. Performance is nothing without recovery BetterYou™ MagnesiumOil helps to facilitate oxygen delivery to the muscles tissue, improving performance and dramatically speeding natural recovery time for muscles stressed from exercise. We asked some of the UK’s leading sportsmen and women what difference using BetterYou™ transdermal magnesium had made to their recovery and sporting performance. Omari Caro - Bradford Bulls Winger. “A training day wouldn’t be complete until I’ve applied BetterYou™ MagnesiumOil Joint Spray to both knees and ankles as these are problem areas for me due to previous injuries. Thanks to the spray, flexibility and movement is coming back to the problem areas and I can only feel it improving with repeated use.” Kim Murray - Team GB Skeleton Athlete “BetterYou™ MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray allows me to recover without the need to run a bath; it is super convenient and I’ve noticed that my muscles were less sore the next day.” Alex Rhodes - Team GB Triathlete “BetterYou™ MagnesiumOil Original Spray offers me the best absorption of this important mineral and helps support my recovery and performance. I use the spray before competing to help combat cramping and also before I go to bed, as the most important part of the recovery cycle is quality of sleep. A huge part of my recent silver medal success at the European Cross Duathlon Championships is certainly down to using BetterYou™ MagnesiumOil Original Spray.”
