When working out, the body as a whole goes through chemical reactions that allow for the use and growth of all functions. However, added nutrients either post or pre workout can help better the flow of these reactions, allowing the body to heal and grow. Magnesium is a key vitamin that makes up 60% of the body and helps promote a healthy function of these reactions.
Magnesium is well supplied in unrefined whole grain cereals, such as whole-meal bread, and also in green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds, peas, beans and lentils. Fruit, meat and fish supply poor levels, as do refined foods. If you're not meeting your daily needs, you can always take a supplement!
