Magnesium is one of the four most abundant elements found in the body and is essential for
normal body function.
During sweating magnesium is also lost, together with other electrolytes.
Magnesium plays a vital role in the body's energy metabolism and is known to help recovery from muscle cramps.
Scientists believe that endurance athletes may be at heightened risk of magnesium deficiency and consequent health and performance problems as a result of metabolic response to exercise, as well as losses incurred via sweat and urine.
Staminade was the first ready to drink sports drink sold in Australia with magnesium in its formula. We put it in there because it's an essential body mineral and you lose it when you sweat. Low magnesium levels cause recurrent muscle cramps - the last thing you want when you've just pushed your body to the limit.
