For high performance athletes, a magnesium deficiency can prevent you from taking your game to the next level.
During physical education class you’re taught to replace the electrolytes sodium and potassium after a workout, practice or match. However most of us don’t even consider replacing our magnesium storages after a workout.
It’s extremely bad news considering that the competitive athlete is predestined to suffer from hypomagnesemia and other electrolyte imbalances more than the average person.
Whether you’re crushing it in the gym or sweating on the practice field, electrolytes are lost in greater amounts through consistent perspiration, urine excretion and from not practicing proper electrolyte replacement after your workouts.
