Its estimated that around 15% of the general population have magnesium deficiency based on collective data from patients admitted into hospitals and GP blood tests.
𝐇𝐎𝐖𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐑 this seriously underestimates the problem, because a serum magnesium level is the 𝐋𝐄𝐀𝐒𝐓 sensitive way to detect a drop in your total body magnesium level. So rates of magnesium deficiency could be even higher!⁣

In addition to all of this taking a Magnesium supplement such as the one from Pharma Nord (using code PWTHERAPY10) is suggested.
Magnesium bath salts and body sprays are also an excellent source of magnesium and are great for after activities/training and before bed.
The most absorbable forms of Magnesium are magnesium citrate, glycinate taurate, or aspartate, although magnesium bound to Kreb cycle chelates (malate, succinate, fumarate) are also good.
If you think you could be Magnesium deficient speak to your GP or us, to have a chat, and potentially arrange a blood test. Keeping a food log is a great way to self assess.
