Benefits of Magnesium-Based Pools for Sports Recovery

Magnesium-based pools have become increasingly popular in recent years as a sports recovery modality for athletes. These pools offer different benefits to other standard pools you may have used before. We’ve outlined a few for you here -

1. Reduces Stress

Magnesium is known for its ability to promote relaxation and reduce stress. When you soak in a magnesium pool, the magnesium is absorbed through the skin and into the body, helping to relax muscles and calm the nervous system.

2. Reduces Inflammation and Pain

Inflammation and pain are common issues for anyone that’s active, from athletes to casual gym-goers - especially after intense workouts or competitions. Magnesium has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation and pain. Soaking in a magnesium pool can help to speed up the recovery process and reduce the risk of future injuries.

3. Improves Sleep Quality

Sleep is critical for sports recovery, and magnesium has been shown to improve sleep quality. Once magnesium is absorbed, it can help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and wake up feeling more rested and refreshed.

4. Enhances Muscle Function and Performance

Magnesium is also essential for muscle function and performance. It can help to regulate muscle contractions, reduce muscle fatigue, and improve energy metabolism. Using a magnesium based pool in your recovery can help to replenish magnesium levels in the body, which can enhance muscle function and performance.

5. Detoxifies the Body

Magnesium pools can also help you to detox. Magnesium is a natural detoxifier that helps to remove toxins from the body, including heavy metals and environmental pollutants, to improve overall health and wellbeing.

While it’s definitely something you need to try for yourself, it’s safe to say adding magnesium pools to your recovery is a good idea. Luckily for you, our cold pool is now magnesium based! You can book a session here.
