Unleash Your Vitality

Imagine it like this; salt and pepper, macaroni and cheese, Batman and Robin… what do they all have in common? They all go flawlessly together; you know what this leads to, right? When iron and magnesium are combined, they harmoniously join forces to promote your well-being. 

Iron is an energiser; it powers vitality and keeps you going strong. Whereas magnesium is the relaxation guru, it lets you loosen up, destress and embrace a peaceful state of bliss. Combine them, and they make an unbeatable team that supports overall health and wellness. 

These metals with the mostest can definitely coexist in your supplement routine. In fact, they complement each other, with magnesium enhancing the absorption of iron in your body. 

Finding the Right Balance

The two essential minerals happily share the spotlight, but striking a balance is important. You don’t want to take excessive amounts of iron or magnesium. When taking new supplements, it’s always a good idea to consult a healthcare professional to determine the proper dosage for your individual needs. 

Maximise the Benefits

We all know that iron and magnesium are great individually, but they create perfect harmony together. We first need to learn how to boost absorption to maximise its effectiveness. 

Timing is key! 

To avoid any potential interference, try taking one of the two supplements in the morning and the other at night. Since iron is energising, it might be more beneficial to take it in the morning and take relaxing magnesium at night.

Pair it up!

Another way to boost absorption is to combine vitamin C-rich foods like tangy citrus, crunchy capsicum and more or supplements. 

Level up your diet!

You know what they say; you are what you eat. Packing in a nutrient-dense diet with plenty of leafy greens, nuts, seeds, whole grains, lean meats, and legumes will make you feel on top of the world and become the best version of yourself.
