After my delivery, i have had a massive pain in my back and also in my hip. I started exercising after 6 months and heavy exercises without proper guidance were the main reason for this pain. When I consulted a doctor he told me to increase the intake of many minerals and vitamins among which one was Magnesium. During my research, I found out that the amount of magnesium we get from food is very less compared to what we really need. Though it is a naturally occurring mineral in our body because I need to increase its intake I had to go for supplements.
What is Magnesium Citrate?
Well, magnesium is very important for our body especially for strengthening bones and muscles and also to support nerves. Sometimes our food fails to provide the kind of nutrition we want and then supplements come in the picture they are not medicines but they are options available for a natural element.
I realized I have written a lot of supplement’s review for this brand but never really talked about the brand. After using their supplement for over a month I want to share some insight about the brand.

I have been using this for about a month and I must say that my back pain has relieved a lot. though not relying only on this I do some frequent exercises and also follow a good diet routine but this has also added to the relief. This has boosted up the level of magnesium in my body and also the powder is odorless, gluten free and no sugar and lactose so it’s completely safe to take. I have had it with my meals once a day and feel like I am just sipping normal water.
