It’s fantastic to be getting back into your fitness regime but you may have some issues with recovery after training, muscle cramps, or injury?
Let’s start with muscle cramps, magnesium is my first choice to try. You can take it, or use BetterYou magnesium spray which you massage into the skin before or after training. Or, add BetterYou magnesium flakes to your bath after training. Whatever you choose, magnesium can help to relax muscles to relieve the pain and soreness.
For recovery after intense or repetitive training try Lifeplan Montmorency Cherry Juice capsules. It has compounds with natural anti-inflammatory properties. It may help with faster recovery and reduces sore muscles after hard exercise, and may enable more frequent training sessions leading to improvements in performance.
Essential fatty acids found in Omega oils support the heart, brain, and vision. Without these fatty acids cells can’t function, renew, or maintain themselves properly. Omega-3s also play an important role in reducing inflammation throughout the body — in the blood vessels, the joints, and elsewhere. By reducing inflammation, you can shorten your recovery time by reducing soreness and joint stiffness after a workout.
To aid muscle repair and growth and speed consider Glutamine. This is an amino acid which may support recovery time, your digestive system, and supports your immune system too. It’s a popular choice for muscle repair with these all-round benefits.
Iron is lost through exercise, and is an important nutrient used by the body’s muscles to help produce energy and for oxygen transport around the body and muscles. Maintaining iron levels can support your performance especially runners, cyclists, and rowers. A boost of Floradix Liquid Iron might be a good option for you to help support energy levels.
Electrolytes are important, you can lose a lot if your exercise promotes sweating. Supplements like Viridian Electrolyte mix are a great choice, you simply add some drops to water and sip to replenish electrolytes. Coconut water can also help.
Have a tube of A.Vogel Atrogel on hand, it can be used for sporting injuries such as joint sprains and strains. As well as for general relief of muscular aches, joint pains and stiffness.
