Magnesium is pretty awesome stuff. I’ve tried all sorts from citrate, oxi-something and glycinate. To summarise it’s great for:
- Enhancing recovery
- Reducing pain & soreness
- Reducing muscle tension
- Reducing anxiety naturally
- Increasing focus (in some forms)
- Reducing high blood pressure
- Aiding sleep
The only forms of magnesium that I’ve found helpful & provide an obvious mood-lift (and reduction in muscle stiffness in my back & neck) are Magnesium Natural Calm and Doctor’s Best Magnesium Glycinate.
Please note I am NOT affiliated with these products.
The only issues I have is that the glycinate makes me very sleepy and too much of the calm powder upsets my stomach (it’s also a great treatment for constipation).
Both are great for anxiety and stiff back & necks.
Magnesium has a range of important functions – If you suffer from headaches, stress or muscle pain; it’s something worth looking into & possibly supplementing with.
