One of our new favorite post-workout supplements is Alkamind Daily Minerals. For those of you who get sore after a workout and want to avoid the burning sensation and sore muscles that go with a strenuous workouts Alkamind was made for you. If you work out often you are probably familiar with lactic acid. This can lead to muscle fatigue and soreness and the body tries to neutralize this acid, but to do so the body will steal minerals from other places, such as bones. If you take Alkamind after a workout, the minerals will help to neutralize the acid and help the body recover faster without depleting minerals from other parts of the body. Alkamind Daily Minerals are fast-absorbing so they will start replenishing your body right away with their unique blend of calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium bicarbonate. Alkamind is very easy to drink with a smooth and subtle taste and it comes in individual on-the-go packets, so just throw them in your gym bag and drink it right after your workout and your body will thank you.

Immun’Age is simply a wonder when it comes to supplements. This is a Fermented Papaya Preparation (FPP) superfood supplement that is clinically proven to combat the internal and external signs of aging and to boost the body’s immune and antioxidative systems. So for the athlete who is always pushing to their maximum and taxing their body to all the way to the everyday person who is just looking for ways to combat the stresses of everyday life, this is the perfect supplement. Proven to help heighten low immune defenses and combat oxidative stress (excess of free radicals) caused by chronic fatigue, unbalanced lifestyles (stress, toxins, pollution, alcohol, tobacco), and intensive workouts (endurance, stamina and recovery).

40 lengthy and extensive clinical trials to test fermented papaya preparation’s health benefits — among them, 2008 Nobel Prize Winner Luc Montagnier, who is credited with first discovering the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Montagnier concluded, “This Fermented Papaya Preparation and its remarkable immuno-stimulant properties contain compounds that protect against myriad infections and disease and greatly boost energy.”

Although these two defense systems decrease with age, it is clinically proven that Immun’Âge delays the aging process at the cellular level without side effects. This unique combination has made Immun’Âge a one-of-a-kind antiaging food supplement. Furthermore, in 2015, Professor Ryan Dickerson from Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center in Columbus and his team discovered that Immun’Âge increases cellular energetics (the cell’s capacity to create energy).
