How Magnesium , Zinc and Vitamin B6 can improve your sleep and recovery
What is Magnesium? Do only athletes have to take it only for muscle cramps? If I am not an athlete, should I take magnesium? Lets go over this and some other questions in this new video ZMA GOPRIMAL

What is magnesium?

Magnesium is a mineral in the human body. It plays several important roles in the health of your body and brain. Every cell in our body contains magnesium and needs it to function. So you get the importance, right? Magnesium is used to improve sleep quality, to help relaxation of muscles and other tissue, together with zinc is one of the best antiviral supplements you can take.


it’s involved in more than 600 reactions in your body, like:
  • Energy creation: Helps convert food into energy.
  • Protein formation: Helps create new proteins from amino acids.
  • Gene maintenance: Helps create and repair DNA and RNA.

Prevention of muscle cramps. It is involved in the contraction and relaxation of muscles. This is the main reason why all our customers feel an automatic benefit, specially in muscle soreness. Many times due to a lack of rest, sleep or bad nutrition our body is not able to relax the tissue after a strenuous exercise routine. stop the bullshit

Stress support

It helps the body relax after acute stress situations and it has a positive impact on your sleep. One of the biggest problems of our modern society is stress. There are many factors that alter our stress, from light, noise, due the most known work, exams, family etc... Many athletes suffer from stress, before competition or even during training, as Fronnin once stated that was his reason for dropping individual competition. Athletes are under pressure to reach a certain level of performance, to beat their opponent or even their gym rivals....

It Has Benefits Against Type 2 Diabetes

Magnesium has a positive effect on the insulin resistance and blood sugar levels.

Magnesium Improves PMS Symptoms

Good levels of magnesium reduce premenstrual syndrome symptoms (water retention, abdominal cramps, tiredness and irritability) And then there are the other 596 or more mg functions. To answer the question, do only athletes need magnesium? Knowing a it has such a big of an impact on our body’s regulation, everybody benefits of a magnesium supplement.

Magnesium in food

A lot of foods contain magnesium but as a consequence of depleted grounds in current agriculture. We don’t get enough magnesium through food. Soil depletion, what is it and how it affects us - Due to modern farming, soils have been overused to continues farming cycles, maximising the amount of units that they can produce, but and this is a big but, the quality of the ingredients have dropped not only in taste, but also in the amount of vitamins and minerals that they can provide. No matter how healthy we are eating, unless we are able to get the vegetables from a local organic source that we know exactly their farming process, we wont be able to get all the nutrients we used to obtain from food. This is why, supplementing with Magnesium and other multivitamins is so important, so we have a pretty solid baseline.
magnesium recoverySo what about supplements?
There are several types of magnesium forms in supplements. The best are Magnesium-glycerophosphate, Magnesium- bisglycinate, Mg-taurate. Always avoid Magnesium-oxide. The body does not absorb this type of mg and only causes diarrhea. The body can only absorpt max. 300mg of Magnesium per uptake moment. If a capsule or tablet contains more. Think twice about buying it. The recovery and regenerate supplement of GP contains 150mg Magnesium per capsule. The recommendation is two caps per day. I hope the importance of Magnesium was clear. A magnesium therapy every couple of months is recommended for everyone!
