For the bodybuilder their is a simple but very effective way to boost your energy levels, stamina and immune system in one go.
Let me explain…
Before I even talk about training aspects, let me first take you down the road my wife was the past few years. She had severe restless legs syndrome and were continuously fatigued. Those that have severe restless legs syndrome will know that it can drive one crazy!
After many prescribed medications was tried, I got here to do some extensive blood-work tests.
A surprise was that she had very low magnesium levels in her blood.
Immediately the light went on! Magnesium plays a crucial factor in various muscle related functions as well as energy and ATP related functions in the body. It even have an impact on the nervous system and skeletal bone maintenance.
She was put on high dosage slow released magnesium supplements and within just a few days her restless legs syndrome disappeared. For her it was like a miracle. Her energy levels also drastically increased.
Slow Mag is now part of her daily supplementation.
This is a mineral that is so underrated. By far the greatest majority (in excess of 70%) of people is deficient of magnesium.
For the bodybuilder, a magnesium deficiency presents a big problem:
He WILL struggle to build muscle, feel fatigued and energy less continuously.
Being deficient will even result in an immune system being under pressure, thus further impact on available gym time. Thus also why critically important that any hiv+ person must make sure he/she supplement with slow mag.
Athletes and bodybuilder need more nutrients than less active people. So it will be a given that you will require supplementation of magnesium.
Magnesium further helps the bodybuilder to reduce the accumulation of lactic acid and reducing the perception of fatigue during heavy training.
Magnesium even helps lowering the blood pressure resulting in healthier kidneys and heart.
To sum it up, the bodybuilder will struggle severely to build muscles when magnesium deficient. He will be regularly sick due to compromised immune system, more prone to become diabetic and have a much higher risk for heart disease. His energy levels will be severely compromised and he will feel on edge the whole time…and much more!
