Most people spend hours every week (if not every day) driving and sitting in a truck or car seat. Overtime, if you are driving with poor posture, you increase your risk of developing painful conditions in the muscles and bones. Just as those with certain occupations may require them to sit in an office chair for hours on end, those who spend most of their day driving may experience painful issues that arise from improper posture.

Why Use Emu Oil?

Why-Real-Time-Pain-Relief-uses-Emu-OilEmu Oil is a hypo-allergenic oil and has no known harmful side effects. It is also effective when it comes to relieving pain and numerous other discomforts of the skin. Even Dr. Oz has recommended the use of Emu Oil for sore muscles and joints. Laboratories in the United States, as well as Australia, have proven that Emu Oil is very effective at reducing inflammation and joint pain.

The Ultimate Pre-Run Smoothie

electrolyte-spinach-smoothieGoodbye cramps and swelling, hello stamina and performance. What makes this pre-run smoothie one of the most efficient and nutritional beverages for avid runners? The proof is in the pudding. Sure, there are plenty of “superfoods” you can shove in your blender that are full of nutrients, but the dynamics of these three ingredients (yes, only three) are what makes it one of running’s best kept secrets. The process is simple: a handful of Spinach leaves (baby/regular), 1 cup of coconut water, and 1 peeled banana. Spinach has huge amounts of Vitamin A, K, and C, as well as potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium, and protein. It also helps to prevent inflammatory issues, oxidative stress-related problems, cardiovascular problems, and strengthens our bones. You might already be aware that bananas contain potassium, but they also contain high amounts of B6. B6 is pretty much the leader when it comes to metabolizing carbohydrates. In fact, the enzyme that actually pulls the carbohydrates from cell storage in our bodies, requires B6 to complete this process, making it not only useful but necessary. Finally, Coconut water will make sure you continue to stay hydrated properly with loads of electrolytes, potassium and sodium, which are things that normal bottled water lack. So there you have it. 3 ingredients that will maximize your running performance and keep your muscles working optimally. Oh, and we forgot to mention…it’s delicious.
