Magnesium: The Powerhouse Mineral for the Modern Go-Getter

Hello, SALTT community!

In the whirlwind of our dynamic lives, from boardrooms to beachside escapes, we often overlook a key ally hidden in plain sight – Magnesium. This mineral is getting a bunch of attention right now, stepping out of the shadows with the publication of a flurry of studies proving it's not just a supplement, but a cornerstone for living a full, vibrant lifestyle. 

Magnesium Uncovered: What We Are Learning

  1. The Relaxer: Magnesium is essential for proper muscle relaxation. When a muscle cell is at rest, magnesium occupies a special site on the cell membrane. During muscle contraction, calcium enters these cells and displaces magnesium, leading to muscle contraction. After the contraction, magnesium replaces calcium on the cell membrane, which helps the muscle relax. Signs you aren't getting enough magnesium? Cramps, spasms, or tightness. 

  2. Master of Moods: In a high-stakes meeting or a social gathering, keeping your cool is key. Magnesium plays a significant role in brain function and mood regulation, as outlined by research in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine which also found magnesium has a protective effect against depression. Think of magnesium like your personal zen master, keeping you composed and charismatic.

  3. Sleep Like a Dream: Nothing is worse than deciding to go to bed and not being able to fall asleep, or sleeping 8 hours and feeling as rested as if you got 2. Magnesium's benefits for sleep are backed by studies like this one from the Journal of Research in Medical Sciences, showing its role in enhancing sleep quality (and avoiding insomnia), so you can fall asleep, sleep deeply, and wake up ready to take on the day.

  4. Heart, The Lifelong Companion: When you feel good, it is so much easier to treat loved ones like you want to, but your heart isn't just for love; it's for loving life. Magnesium's positive effects on cardiovascular health are highlighted in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, making it a silent guardian for your most vital organ.

  5. Fitness Partner: Whether it's a spontaneous hike with friends or a scheduled indoor soccer game, muscle function is key. Magnesium aids in muscle health and recovery, a fact supported by numerous recent studies including this one in the Journal of Pain Research

  6. Energizer and Rejuvenator: We all know how it feels to leave the office and have no ability to do anything but plop in front of a TV. But what if you could leave the office, ready to enjoy the rest of life. How? Magnesium is crucial in energy production, transforming what you eat into energy. Numerous studies including this one from Oregon State, and this joint study between Indiana University and the Shanghai University of Sport reveals magnesium's role in energy metabolism, increasing endurance, and muscle performance, ensuring you're charged up for post-work scenarios – be it a golf swing or a sunset surf with friends.

Integrating Magnesium into Your Elite Lifestyle

Incorporating magnesium into your life is like choosing a timeless piece for your wardrobe – essential and effortlessly elegant. From nutrient-rich foods like spinach, almonds, and avocados to our thoughtfully crafted SALTT electrolytes, elevating your magnesium intake is both a pleasure and a smart choice.

This is one of many reasons we created the balanced formula we did. Some companies have high sodium in their electrolytes, but are forgetting the importance of magnesium (and potassium).
