Salt Lab magnesium oil for sore muscles

It is all too common for us to feel like we are dragging ourselves out of bed each morning facing the day feeling sub-par. Whether you are aching and sore from your previous day's adventures (or chores, let's be real) or exhausted and flat, here are some tips on introducing Magnesium into your day to give your body the opportunity to completely rest, recover and face the day with energy in abundance.

Muscle Recovery; Training hard or noticing those daily walks are having you wake up a little tender? If you are training or exercising regularly, chances are you will be depleting your body of essential minerals and nutrients - especially Magnesium. Therefore, it’s important to supplement these vitamins and minerals to give your body BACK these crucial nutrients - allowing your muscles, nervous system, and other systems to recover so that you can continue to progress and maintain a high level of fitness and overall wellbeing. Here are just *some* of the ways Magnesium oil can help with exercise and recovery:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Aids with sleeping (which helps with overall recovery) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Reduces occurrence and severity of muscle cramps⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Prevents or reduces DOMS⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Boosts muscle endurance and exercise performance ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Without enough magnesium, you may instead feel:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Weak⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Lethargic⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Low in mood⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Fatigued⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Anxious⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Tight and tense⠀⠀

After a workout, spritz 2-6 sprays of Salt Lab Magnesium Oil directly onto the muscles trained or area you are feeling tension, rub in and allow to dry before covering. Applying directly onto the muscle will allow that area to access the mineral directly resulting in fast effective relief.

Restless Legs; That dreaded itching, throbbing sensation in your legs that forces you to wiggle and kick about, desperate for relief? You’re not alone. Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) causes unpleasant or uncomfortable sensations in the legs and an irresistible urge to move them. RLS is classified as sleep & neurological sensory disorder. It can cause exhaustion from lack of sleep - strongly affecting your mood, performance, personal relationships & overall wellbeing. Thankfully, RLS CAN be treated, with care directed toward relieving symptoms. Moving the affected limb(s) may provide temporary relief, but often lifestyle & dietary changes are needed to provide ongoing relief and management. Maintaining regular exercise, massaging the legs, using heat packs, and decreasing the use of alcohol may all help. Supplement-wise - magnesium will be your lifesaver. Magnesium relaxes muscles and nerves and can provide relief for those restless legs when supplemented consistently over time. A few sprays of our Mag Oil before bed each night could provide the relief you’re after - simply spray 2-6 sprays of Salt Lab Magnesium Oil on your legs about 30mins before heading to bed, massage it in and let this miracle mineral work its magic.

Cramps; Anyone else get those mid-workout muscle cramps, or on the days following a big gym session, you find yourself stretching your toes back in an attempt to beat that cramp you can feel coming on? Perhaps you are victim to cramps in your legs at night (they always feel *extra* excruciating at night, are we right?!). When it comes to combatting cramps (including PMS-induced cramping!), magnesium is the mineral commonly on the top of every natural remedy list. Magnesium has the amazing ability to regulate neuromuscular signals and muscle contractions which can prevent the painful cramps associated with exercise. So go on and get spraying that Magnesium Oil before (and after) your next workout, before bed, or during that time of the month! Spritz 2-6 sprays on the area you are experiencing cramping, we recommend using it every night to help prevent the cramps from coming on. And if you have time bathe in our Magnesium Bath Salts for the ultimate unwind, soak and reset.

Keep in mind we are ALWAYS burning magnesium, whether you are at the gym sweating up a storm, in the office frantically tackling your to-do list or casually strolling to get your morning caffeine hit our magnesium stores are rapidly being burnt through. With this in mind it is essential we have a daily routine of topping this magic mineral up.

Some tips + FAQ’s; Magnesium should always be rubbed in for best results there is no need to rinse it off post application
