What does the magnesium in Re-Lyte Muscle Recovery Capsules do?

Magnesium is an essential electrolyte that can help protect you from muscle-related symptoms like cramps, weakness, and spasms.

Re-Lyte Muscle Recovery Capsules are made with our Re-Lyte Electrolyte Mix, which includes the essential electrolyte magnesium. Magnesium performs some pretty important jobs for your body, especially your muscles. It supports the contraction and relaxation of muscles and can help loosen tight muscles. It also provides energy to your cells and promotes proper neurological functioning.

Magnesium is one of several electrolytes you lose in your sweat, so it’s important to replenish it regularly if you’re active. If you don’t and you’re levels get low, you could experience muscle-related symptoms like cramps, weakness, and spasms. Low magnesium levels can also increase the buildup of lactic acid, which can make your muscles feel more tired and sore after working out. In addition to its effect on your muscles, low magnesium levels can also contribute to overall fatigue, high blood pressure, heart arrhythmia, anxiety, and depression.

Some of the magnesium in Re-Lyte occurs naturally in our unrefined, ancient sea salt Real Salt. But we also add a 50/50 blend of magnesium malate and magnesium glycinate. There are a few important benefits to these forms of magnesium over other forms of magnesium.

  • Magnesium glycinate contains an amino acid (a building block for protein) called glycine that supports brain health, eases stress, and reduces anxiety. 
  • Magnesium malate helps keep blood sugar in balance. Plus, it contains malic acid, an amino acid that promotes muscle strength and recovery to help you power through those tough workouts. 

Both of these types of magnesium are lighter on your stomach and more easily absorbed by your body. The magnesium we currently use in Re-Lyte Electrolyte Mix is sourced both in the U.S. and abroad and is made following Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMPs) guidelines that ensure its identity, strength, quality, and purity.
