TURMERIC IS YOUR BEST WORK-OUT BUDDY! Exercise is definitely an important part of a healthy lifestyle and we all benefit physically and emotionally when we add it to our daily life. That is simply a super-fact! Just look at all these benefits, just a few that can give you the inspiration you need to make it a habit, regardless of the temperature or the terrain in which you live. WHY GET REGULAR EXERCISE? Getting exercise regularly:Grounds us mentally and spirituallyEnsures weight lossReduces anxietyLowers stress levelsImproves sleepLowers the risk of heart diseaseReduce the chances of strokesIncreases oxygen to the bod and brainLowers cholesterolRegulates blood sugarPrevents diabetesStrengthens bonesHelps prevent osteoarthritis andFlushes toxins through sweat and increased circulation EXERCISE AND HEALING As beneficial as exercise is, it is also important to do it in a way that doesn’t cause injury to yourbody! Whether you are just beginning, or a seasoned athlete, you must never overdo it, and always take enough time to recover from each workout, giving your body time to rest and heal. It may sound a little crazy to say that your body needs to heal after a workout, but no matter what type of exercises you’re doing, that is the truth. So, why is that? No matter what level you are at in your exercise regimen, those from newbies to top athletes can hurt after a workout. Pushing our bodies beyond their regular limitations of exercise will cause this pain, which is a natural result from making your body do more than it’s been required to before. That said, a little pain is to be expected, and is a good sign that your body is working just right! But a lot of pain, such as cramps, muscles that hurt a lot, or muscle weakness, is called muscle fatigue. Muscle fatigue is when your muscles are tired out from working and can’t perform the requested tasks at a normal functioning level. If muscles continue to be worked even after becoming fatigued, they enter a stage called muscle exhaustion. This is a crucial stage because if we don’t take the time at this point to let our muscles rest and heal, we can cause muscle damage.These 3 stages of muscle response to exercise all involve the body’s response to stress, the dreaded… Inflammation. Dun, dun, duuuuun!! TURMERIC TEA IS INVALUABLE FOR AFTER-SPORTS RECOVERY But here is where our beloved Turmeric teas come to the rescue. We are always singing loudly about how Turmeric combats inflammation, because it is the favorite secret weapon of many athletes and those who incorporate exercise into their daily lives! The reason we use it in ALL our teas and blends, is because it is famous for reducing inflammation in our joints and body systems. If you have overworked yourself during a run or your favorite spin class, or even lifting light weights, Turmeric will go to work right away to prevent chronic inflammation from settling into your joints and muscles. Plus, it will speed the recovery process faster. What’s even more exciting is that taking Turmeric before a workout can help prevent muscle fatigue and damage! This is great news for those just embarking on a new, or someone who may be in training for a professionally competitive event.
