What is magnesium?
Magnesium is a macromineral that participates in numerous chemical reactions in the body and is naturally present in foods such as sesame, oatmeal or almonds.
Why is Magnesium important for athletes?
Magnesium plays a crucial role in relaxation and muscle contraction, intervenes in energy metabolism, is necessary for protein synthesis and also in cell division mechanisms, helps reduce tiredness and fatigue and contributes to improving electrolyte balance muscle recovery after exercise.
Why do magnesium levels decrease in athletes?
Exercise causes a decrease in Magnesium due to losses in urine, sweat and a reduction in plasma Magnesium that occurs when the pH decreases when lactic acid increases.
Lactic acid is produced in our metabolism as a product of the metabolism of glucose to produce energy. Increased lactic acid concentration occurs when muscle energy demand exceeds oxygen availability in the blood. The accumulated lactic acid then produces an acidification of the surrounding muscular environment, the inhibition of muscle metabolic enzymes, the appearance of fatigue, a decrease in the effectiveness of muscle contraction and a failure of the effectiveness of the contractile system.
In athletes, magnesium needs are greater and its scarcity produces: increased muscle cramps, reduced resistance, weakness and increased irregular heartbeats.
