Kourtney Kardashian is the queen of sharing non-toxic, all-natural products she uses on the regular, such as a $36 “superfood” honey and trendy collagen powder. Some of her picks are pretty out there for the typical shopper, but sometimes the oldest Kardashian suggests an item that hits the sweet spot of affordable, effective, and genius.
While it might seem like an unnecessary addition, Kardashian points out that many people are unknowingly deficient in magnesium — and she’s not wrong. “Roughly 75 percent of women don’t get enough,” Liz Applegate, Ph.D., the director of sports nutrition at the University of California, Davis, previously told Shape. Considering magnesium can help increase endurance, boost sleep, reduce anxiety (and your cancer risk), and aid in muscle recovery (FYI, low levels can contribute to lactic acid buildup), Kardashian certainly makes a strong case.
However, if you do believe you could be at risk of magnesium deficiency, for oral ingestion, the ConcenTrace Trace Mineral Drops can be added to any liquid for an instant boost. Already a favorite of more than 2,800 shoppers, the drops taste like mineral water (so they’re essentially tasteless!) and have helped people with issues like muscle cramps, headaches, and vertigo, according to reviews.
Either way, you’ll be one step closer to reaping the same benefits of magnesium as Kardashian, which she told Poosh includes less anxiety, a relaxed mind, and soothed muscle cramps. Better yet, embracing your inner Kardashian won’t cost a fortune this time around — both muscle recovery products are listed for under $20.
