It boosts your performance while exercising, fights depression, improves sleep, can protect you from Type 2 diabetes, reduces insulin resistance, balances hormones, lowers your blood pressure, helps prevent migraines, and even reduces the symptoms of PMS.
Medical scientific research has shown that magnesium is involved in numerous processes that affect muscle function including oxygen uptake, energy production and electrolyte balance.
If you’re not optimizing your magnesium stores, you’re missing out on peak performance and muscle gains. Without magnesium, the enzymes that enable muscle protein synthesis are impaired, compromising recovery, hypertrophy, and strength. In addition, magnesium maintains the equilibrium for healthy testosterone and balanced cortisol levels, which can make or break an athlete. It also allows for the metabolism of cortisol after hardcore workouts by reducing nervous system activation, as well as accelerating the recovery process.
In the past few years, transdermal use of magnesium – applying it to the skin for absorption into the blood stream – has gained a lot of attention because it bypasses the digestive system and can provide results much more quickly than oral supplementation. This transdermal application is particularly useful in the sporting world where athletes and players need targeted and speedy relief.
Wintergreen™ Magnesium Gel
Magnesium Gel is easy to massage with, and is quickly absorbed through the pores without leaving any oily residue on the skin. It replenishes magnesium lost through sweating, while at the same time the Wintergreen and Arnica oils act to reduce inflammation and minor pain, and help to heal tears in any microfibers in the muscles.
Wintergreen™ Magnesium Spray
Magnesium Spray absorbs straight through the skin into the blood stream and into the muscles, replenishing lost magnesium fast. It is the quickest and easiest way to get pure magnesium sulphate into the system where and when it’s needed most. Its water based formula means it leaves no oily residue.
Wintergreen™ Magnesium Lotion
Perfect for daily maintenance of magnesium levels, this Magnesium Lotion also has many benefits for the skin when used as a daily moisturising lotion. By applying it after a shower or bath when the body is warm and the pores are open, the magnesium with added Vitamin E oil and Shea butter help hydrate the skin and improve its appearance, keeping it toned and supple, while reducing the effects of ageing and helping to repair sun damage.
Wintergreen™ Magnesium Soak
A warm 20 minute bath in Wintergreen™ Magnesium Soak, made with the highest grades of pure magnesium sulphate (Epsom Salts) and magnesium chloride, will open the pores in the skin allowing for the best possible absorption - improving circulation, helping to ease stiffness and pain in the muscles while reducing inflammation in aching joints, and helping to detox the body from the effects of lactic acid build up after an intense work out.
