Magnesium is one of the few supplements I genuinely feel almost everyone can benefit from.
If for no other reason than it’s beneficial effects on the nervous system! It’s been shown to noticeably reduce stress and as a result improve sleep quality, recovery and mental health.
Serotonin, your brain’s happy hormone is dependent on magnesium and keeping your magnesium levels healthy can go a long way to maintaining healthy serotonin production.
Sustained low magnesium levels can lead to high blood pressure and dramatically increases stress on your system! So keep it topped up.
The most simple option is tablets, most solid supplement providers have a quality magnesium these days.
Try to use a higher quality and more bioavailable variation such as magnesium bisglycinate rather than citrate or oxidate as these lower quality forms can cause you… well let’s just say “bowel issues”.
Dosage will vary based on your circumstances but aiming for 7-10Mg/Kg of body weight daily split between morning and evening meals is a solid place to start.
