Post Workout Pain Relief

Here I have listed a couple of natural way to take away the pain after a tough workout! Don’t go for the medicine cupboard and take pills, try these 3 naturals instead!

For tired muscles, go for ice and heat. According to studies at the Australian Institute of Sport, putting muscles in hot, then cold conditions enhances recovery. For a simple way of doing this just grab an ice pack(or a bag of frozen peas will do) and press against the sore muscle for 60 seconds, then place in hot water for a further 60 seconds. Alternate this for 5-10 minutes.
For Pain Relief, instead of taking pain killers, try Brazilian Tea! Like ibuprofen, Brazilian Tea has shown to reduce pain and swelling according to researchers at Newcastle University. So go switch the kettle on and put your feet up!
Post Workout Pain ReliefFor Joint Ache, get your intake of turmeric extract! Turmeric (pictured left) can stop cartilage from breaking down and, according to researchers at the University of Arizona it can also reduce pain and swelling! Buy turmeric tablets from there you have it, 3 great ways to ease the pain and all done without the need of pills! Let me know how you get on when trying these out.
