Magnesium for Muscle Pain & Relaxation.
Muscle pain can be experienced in practically all areas of the body. This includes our back, shoulders, calves, hands and even our feet. Implementing regular exercise and stretching and respecting our body’s limits can play a role in keeping this type of pain managed. However, there are some contributors to muscle pain that cannot be managed through outside actions.
Inadequate levels of magnesium, also known as a magnesium deficiency, can cause tension and pain in our muscles along with muscle spasms/tics.
Intense muscle contractions, cramping (including menstrual cramps) and even Restless Legs Syndrome have been proven to be signs that there are insufficient levels of cellular magnesium, which is the magnesium contained within our cells. Inside of our bodies, there exists constant competition between minerals and nutrients. In the battle between calcium and magnesium, calcium always wins. When calcium accumulates in excess amounts, it can cause painful muscle contractions which are known to us as cramps, spasms and tics.
In simple terms – inadequate levels of cellular magnesium allows calcium to take control and create discomfort. This manifests as most types of muscle pain, tension, spasms and cramps. A fast, natural and effective solution and to soothing and preventing these symptoms could easily be the application of topical magnesium over the affected area. How does it work?
