Magnesium is so important for every one not just swimmers. Swimmers however are in a dangerous environment and having a low magnesium level can make one have cramps, muscle fatigue as well as cause a rise in blood pressure and mess with your glucose tolerance. A simple red blood cell taste performed can tell you if you are magnesium deficient, and if you are you can start raising your magnesium levels with some dark green fruits and vegetables and nuts. However if you are unable to consume an adequate supply there are also supplements and drinks that can be used to supply the necessary magnesium back into your blood. When magnesium is low it can result in heart conditions, glucose (diabetic issues) intolerance, sleep disorders, restless leg syndrome, and cramping. So if you are plagued by these symptoms whether you are an athlete or not beef up the dark green vegetables, have some Dark chocolate, sneak an avocado into your day, eat a banana and enjoy less symptoms. Sleep is important for a strong performance the next day, so keep the sleep deprivation at bay and raise your magnesium consumption. Its simple and yummy to do if you pick the right fruits, mix it up a bit and make a smoothy for an invigorating drink to wow the taste buds and improve your health.
