We continue with our tips on how to exercise smart and maximizing your efforts by eating green! For this purpose, we highlight the Watercress-Apple Smoothie which is known to power up your workout and minimize muscle damage! Here's how:


Watercress-Apple Smoothie

Power up your workout with this green drink! Watercress is considered one of the
 best foods for energy and muscle repair. In one study, people who ate just three ounces of the little leaf daily for eight weeks, prior to engaging in strenuous exercise, suffered from less post-workout muscle damage. And thanks to high levels of vitamins C, K, folate, and calcium contained in watercress, it gives your brain, not just your body, a boost!


To Prevent Muscle Cramping Prior to a Workout or to Treat Pain After Exercise:


MuscleMagic Pain Relief Cream is an all-natural pain relief cream which incorporates Mother Nature's herbal extracts for alleviating pain -- camphor, oleoresin capsaicin, wintergreen oil - among others agents known to address pain at the source and alleviate sore muscles. The benefit of this deep-penetrating heat rub is that it can be used PRIOR to exercise to help warm up muscles and minimize muscle spasms/cramps OR it may be applied after a workout in order to address soreness and speed up recovery.
This all-natural topical analgesic has quickly become a pro-athlete favorite as it presents a nice alternative to pills/painkillers often associated with side effects.
