Are you tired all the time? Stressed Out in your daily life? Most South Africans have a magnesium deficiency within their diet and experience these symptoms on a daily basis. Slow Carma is a Magnesium compound, that together with L-Carnitine combats this deficiency, strengthens your metabolic system and helps the body to produce energy naturally.

What is L-Carnitine?

L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid derivative that’s often taken as a weight loss supplement. It plays a few crucial roles in our bodies that include assisting in the production of energy! It does this by transporting fatty acids into your cells mitochondria, this inhibits the build-up of lactic acid in your body – one of the primary causes of fatigue. L-Carnitine has also been shown to support the heart and cardiovascular system.

Taking just two capsules of Slow Carma daily will help introduce L-Carnitine into your system and where before you felt fatigued you will now have the energy you need to take on the day!

Why do I Need Magnesium?

Magnesium is a vital nutrient for your body, it is involved in many important physiological processes that occur when you exercise. Adding magnesium to your diet assists your body with the production of Energy through Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), considered by biologists to be the energy currency of life. It is the high-energy molecule that stores the energy we need to do just about anything and is especially necessary when you are going for that PB in a race. Magnesium also helps the body manage muscle contraction and muscle relaxation – important for those that suffer with cramping while exercising, but most importantly it keeps your body’s cells healthy!

Leading an active lifestyle means that there are numerous benefits to include Magnesium as a daily supplement in your diet, as it can improve your athletic training, your performance, and aid recovery. Studies have shown those with higher Magnesium levels showed better muscle integrity and function, grip strength, lower leg muscle power, knee extension torque and ankle extension strength. All vital for a runner!

Professional Athletes Agree!

As featured in the July edition of Modern Athlete, track, road and cross country star Thabang Mosiako believes that using Magnesium Café supplements after suffering severe head injuries in a brutal attack, was a tremendous contributing factor to his quick recovery and return to competition.

“Benita tracked me down after the attack and told me to try the product, that I will see the results. Everyone thought I would only be running again next year, or at least after six months of recovery, but I went to African Champs. What really helped me recover was the magnesium products, and I can’t thank Benita and Magnesium Café enough. It took away the headaches, and gave me the energy and focus I needed in training. The terrible headaches I was getting are not so bad now, and I plan to keep using the product, because it saved my career!”

Having earned IAAF Gold Label status after a brilliant run at the World Half Marathon Champs earlier this year in Spain, Nolene Conrad added magnesium to her current supplement regime and immediately noticed the difference.

“As I have been struggling with a magnesium deficiency, I started using Slow Carma as an additional supplement to my usual recovery drink. Magnesium is crucial for performance, energy and recovery, and I have seen the results after using this product on a daily basis. What is great is that it’s a combination of magnesium and L-carnitine to enhance the repairing of damaged muscles, relieve muscle soreness and give you more energy.”

The Perfect Partner for Comrades Marathon

Wiseman Sibaya, has attempted four and completed two Comrades Marathons, he says taking two Slow Carma before and during the race assisted his body to not cramp, “it’s a long race, and taking two 30 minutes before and two just before half way helped me a lot.” Speaking on the two that he didn’t finish, he realized there was something lacking saying, “it’s not only about running, it’s always what you put in your body to assist you, since using Magnesium it has helped my body to finish the race. After completing the 90km race, I could still walk 1km to my car and drive home, I didn’t limp the next day, and I believe it’s because of the Magnesium.”

Slow Carma is available from their online store Magnesium Café  at a special rate for the month of September.
