The Magnesium Miracle

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.

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 benefits


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.
