It’s the time of year when we are all a little beat up from the holidays, the delicious/unhealthy food and drink, the weather, the constant barrage of germs, and all the training.
We can fortify ourselves with nutritional supplements that support our immune systems, our sleep and recovery, and our ability to resist wear and tear and injury. Here are a few products from Thorne, our preferred supplier, to consider adding to your daily routine:
RecoveryPro—a blend of whey protein, tryptophan, magnesium bisglycinate, and PharmaGABA that promotes restful sleep and optimizes recovery in a great-tasting chocolate-flavored powder. See Katherine for a free sample!
Vitamin C—Provides antioxidant support and promotes glowing skin.
Vitamin D—Promotes healthy immune function and good cardiovascular health, especially important during the short winter days when we don’t get much sun exposure. Even if you’re on the hill all day, only part of your face gets any rays.
Quercetin—A flavonoid that supports healthy immune function and promotes healthy aging; can be helpful for seasonal allergies.
Zinc bisglycinate—Supports healthy immune function, connective tissue, and promotes healthy skin and eyes in a highly absorbable form. (Note: if you are taking a Thorne multivitamin in the recommended daily dose, you're getting at least 15mg of zinc already.)
NAC—An amino acid that supports detoxification and helps break up mucus for good respiratory health.
Amino Complex--A mildly sweetened powder for post-workout containing the essential amino acids your body can't produce on its own, to aid recovery/repair, reduce muscle soreness, and promote energy production and lean muscle mass.
