Magnesium: An Underrated Electrolyte

"What's so great about magnesium anyway?" you might ask. 

As an electrolyte in the body, magnesium is in high demand for muscle function, circulatory health and hydration, but it easily used up during times of stress.  Calcium is responsible for muscle contraction, where as magnesium does the opposite, allowing muscle relaxation.  Thus, having enough magnesium available to your body when recovering from intense times can be very, very helpful.

Alan Chang here at Amara likes to use readily bio-available magnesium water to boost magnesium levels, since it may be a mineral that is largely depleted in our soil and thus our food sources.  

Once you find a magnesium source that is right for you, happy relaxing!  You deserve some calm!
