The Goal: Rehydrate and replenish electrolytes for optimal functioning.
The Plan: 30-minute session, up to 3 times per week.
The Goods: Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate, Selenium, Calcium Gluconate, B1, B2, B3, B6, and B12.
The Science: A healthy adult is comprised of about 70% water. Other than oxygen, there is no single more important substance critical to life itself. One can live weeks without food, yet only days without water. But water alone is not enough, it is the minerals carried by the moisture in the body that is essential to life itself. These minerals are referred to routinely as electrolytes. They actually allow for the conduction of electricity within the body, including the creating of electrical impulses throughout our nervous system. The human body is made up of 75 trillion cells and they demand sufficient nutrients, oxygen and waste removal to function optimally. Yet, without proper levels of hydration and electrolytes, tissues like your muscles that are highest source of hydration reserve within your body cannot function. Symptoms of insufficient hydration and electrolytes include: fatigue, lack of vitality, headache, an inability to concentrate, joint pain due to insufficient cushioning at the joint space, muscle pain and discomfort, skin conditions, constipation, thirst, restless or irritable behavior, decreased skin resilience, and dry mucous membranes.
The Deal: Magnesium is an essential electrolyte for hydration. Magnesium relaxes muscles and restores the balance of minerals in the body. It is the second most plentiful positively charged mineral within the body, following calcium, and is involved with more than 300 enzyme systems. The availability of magnesium for proper muscle and overall energy within all the cells of the body is critical. Calcium regulates muscle contractions and heart rhythm, aids in metabolism of essential nutrients, and is essential for bone and muscle health. Calcium is a key cornerstone in building a strong wellness foundation. The combination of magnesium and calcium is critical for healthy muscle function. Selenium reduces oxidative stress on the body by neutralizing free radicals. Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, and B12, boost energy and reduce fatigue caused by dehydration.
