Get Set Go!!!

Its Marathon time…..gear up for the Mumbai Marathon and improve performance on the day of the race with our Good Health Always Infusion

Mountain runners Emelie Forsberg and Kilian Jornet, have been known to fuel themselves before or during a race with cookies soaked in tea. They aren’t the first to boost their endurance with tea- for centuries, people in the Andes have made tea from cocoa leaves, dried herbs and spices to be used to boost energy and performance and aid with altitude acclimatization.

Fresh and dried herbs and spices are not just flavor additions merely for taste… they are actually powerful performance aids for sportspersons! The energy enhancing properties of herbs and spices help promote vitality, decrease tissue inflammation and provide much needed antioxidant boosting- to fight inflammation, boost circulation and heal damaged tissues. In fact, the Ancient Greek word for fennel (saunf) is ‘Marathon’- they believed that fennel promoted endurance and longevity.

Marathon runners can have a tremendous amount of tissue inflammation. Inflammation is caused by a flux of free radicals in the body and can stem from issues such as diet, lifestyle choices, digestive issues, and chronic conditions like heart disease or diabetes. Exercise is also a natural cause of free radical production.

There are different teas/brews/infusions you can incorporate into your diet to manage inflammation and improve stiffness, soreness and overall well-being. These teas/brews/infusions also have performance-boosting benefits when consumed before, during or after the race.

A strong coffee provides an initial spike in energy levels which is unfortunately followed by a rapid decline in energy. It can also leave you feeling jittery and acidic and you know that you will be uncomfortable running with a sour stomach. Substitute your pre-run coffee with our special Good Health Always Marathon Infusion that provides long-lasting energy without the crash. This infusion will hydrate you before as well as during the race and boost your post-run recovery.

The Good Health Always Marathon Infusion has ingredients which will do the following:

- Help clear congestion in the respiratory system and reduce mucous formation.
- Reduce airway constriction.
- Prevent tissue inflammation.
- Provide stress-reducing amino acids which elevate metabolism.
- Provide magnesium and zinc for testosterone production( for durability and recovery)
- Provide calcium and manganese for bone health.
