Review: 3 key ingredients target muscle soreness and recover: Creatine monohydrate, L-carnitine L-tartrate and Corosolic acid. Creatine (formed from the amino acids arginine and glycine) is the primary draw card of this product, with its benefits for restoring energy at the cellular level.
For runners, creatine has benefits for lactate threshold and glycogen storage (increasing both) while also improving muscle hydration and acting as an antioxidant.
Naturally sweetened with stevia.
No artificial colors or flavors.
Contains a whopping 60 servings per container.
Significantly decreases post-run soreness.
Negatively affects some people’s digestive systems.
A great quality supplement to add to your recovery routine if creatine is something you are considering including. This is the best supplement for recovery after running.
Review: This herbal turmeric mix contains a prebiotic blend for added benefits to your gut flora, as well as other delicious chai spices such as cinnamon, ginger, black pepper, cardamom, holy basil and star anise, each with their own benefits.
Add it to warm almond milk for a cosy, restorative latte, or into a smoothy with ice and coconut milk for a refreshing shake.
Consuming a natural anti-inflammatory like turmeric is also far more beneficial that synthetic anti-inflammatories in pill form such as ibuprofen, as the anti-inflammatory effects are wide spread and gentle on your stomach without necessarily targeting the localized inflammation that may actually be beneficial in moderation.
The body usually knows what it’s doing so natural alternatives typically come with less side effects.
No added sugar or flavourings.
Easy to add to smoothies or just mix with your favorite milk.
Concentrated turmeric extract contains 42mg of curcumin (active ingredient in turmeric) per 1.5 teaspoon serving.
Versatile, can be drunk warm or cold.
Doesn’t contain fat which can play a role in turmeric absorption.
Doesn’t contain protein so would need to be combined with a protein powder to form the ideal recovery shake.
This is a fantastic option for a recovery drink if used in combination with a protein source, speeding recovery through reducing inflammation.
Review: For a refreshing hydration focused drink, green tea is becoming as popular as chocolate milk for recovery purposes due to its high concentrations of catechins, antioxidants that help repair muscle damage.
For those looking for a recovery drink with caffeine to follow their morning run, a study has shown that green tea is a fantastic choice for supporting endurance and preventing decreases in iron levels.
However, a decaffeinated version will provide the same benefits sans the caffeine!

380mg sodium with magnesium, calcium and potassium.
