OUR RESPONSE: Over the years our joints have to withstand a lot of wear and tear. Constant movement, exercise and injury can lead us to feel stiff, creak when you move, or just flat out hurt with activity. MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) supplementation can lead to improvement in all the above. MSM can help with repair of tissue, improvement in joint cushion and less pain. If you currently have active pain start with 3000mg-5000mg of MSM daily until relief is seen. If you are looking for maintaining your health then 1000mg of MSM may successfully do the job. Either way MSM is protecting all joints and tissue and can offer extra benefit to help in recovery if a surgery or joint replacement is necessary.

OUR RESPONSE: Where do I begin with this one? Fitness and supplements go hand in hand. The importance of the right nutrition in anyone who exercises, a professional athlete or the occasional cross trainer, is essential. A few basic factors that I recommend across the board is to make sure that a healthy meal, or if a meal cannot happen then a protein drink or bar may be used until food is available, within an hour after you finish exercise. Also essential is Vitamin C (Ascorbate) which is essential for repair of tissue. So 1000mg of the Ascorbate form of Vitamin C within an hour after exercise will start the healing process. Staying active can sharpen your mind and keep you feeling young, so remember to feed and nourish your active body.
