Almost a week has passed since last weeks devastating rugby game between our Boys in Blue and the Aussies. We are all obviously completely devastated about the score but can't help but wonder, if the Scottish rugby team had a regular supply of seaweed could the score have been any different?
Mara seaweed, and seaweed in general is a great source of magnesium, potassium and calcium. Deficiency in these minerals can contribute to muscle cramping that can be incredibly painful and disabling, as Scotland rugby player Stuart Hogg found out.
Muscle cramps can be caused by a number of different factors including a change in surroundings such a beds and pitches as well as vitamin and mineral deficiencies. When we exercise we sweat. Sweat is made up from 99% water as well as calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, copper, zinc and amino acids so eating mineral rich seaweed is a great way to replenish the nutrients that have been lost.
Stay on top of your game with a daily fix of mara seaweed.
