FOR A BETTER RUN, TRY:
To breathe easy during your runs, try clearing your airways with echinacea. Research in The Southern Medical Journal reported it boosts the immunity of your lungs. (Try Now Echinacea, $43.50 from Nature’s Farm stores).
FOR QUICK MUSCLE RECOVERY, TRY:
More specifically, orange or pineapple juices. A study in the Journal Of Ethnopharmacology found that combining the bromelain in pineapples with vitamin C from orange juice reduced muscle soreness and lactic ache.
FOR AN INFLAMED PROSTATE, TRY:
Studies published in Current Sports Medicine found that cycling can inflame the prostate. The solution: pomegranate juice. Research in the Journal Of Urology showed it could significantly reduce inflammation.
FOR DIARRHOEA, TRY:
A study in the Journal Of Emerging Infectious Diseases reported that an average of 1 in 12 public swimming pools contain diarrhoea-causing bacteria. Luckily, another recent US research found that a daily cup of tea boosts your gut’s immunity to such bugs.
