3 hero herbs for fitness, strength and recovery
1. Turmeric can be helpful in helping the body recover and reduce any built-up inflammation. Turmeric also boosts metabolic rate and increases circulation and heart rate. It’s an excellent alternative to reaching for a conventional painkiller to alleviate muscular tension or pain.
Try Pukka Turmeric Active tea, Turmeric Active capsules and don’t forget about the Active 35 Oil which is perfect for that after-exercise massage.
2. Red ginseng is a powerhouse of energy. An excellent choice for that pre-workout boost. It builds core energy levels through boosting adrenal strength, increases oxygen availability to the muscles supporting recovery and repair and has a mild stimulant effect improving endurance.
Try Pukka Wholistic Red Ginseng capsules or Ginseng Matcha Green tea.
3. Both matcha and green tea boost our metabolic rate and are the perfect option for before, during and after exercise. They also improve cognitive functioning, so can be helpful in keeping us motivated. If you are into more endurance sports such as long-distance walking, then keeping a hot flask of matcha or green tea will help keep you energised and mentally motivated.
Try Pukka Lean Matcha Green tea or Turmeric Gold tea.
