Have you tried a magnesium supplement? Why should you?

Here is a simple explanation from Orange Naturals, the makers of MagPop:

Magnesium is, in fact, crucial for our bodies. It’s used by every cell to build proteins, repair DNA, and provide energy. It’s estimated to be used in over 350 different biochemical reactions! (from Orange Naturals: Why Magnesium Glycinate is Awesome)

So did I like MagPop? It was really easy to use – pour into a glass, pour water in, stir and drink. I drank it after a tough kickboxing workout (which I have been back to for 6 weeks – after not doing it for 8 years…) and it actually helped to settle me down more quickly. Typically I’m still sweating and feeling like my heart is racing for half an hour afterwards. So I was impressed with how the MagPop affected by post-workout feeling of “normalcy”. I also drank it before bed and had a great sleep! And – it tasted good! I’ve tried other magnesium supplements before and didn’t really love the taste of them. This one really does taste good!

Where can you buy MagPop? It’s available at select Rexall and Bulk Barn locations, as well as online through well.ca.
