Adding this Simple Ingredient to Your Meals Can Improve Your Recovery
by Brian Maslach, founder of Enduro Bites
Like many of you, I’m constantly searching for ways to improve my nutrition so I can recover faster and ride stronger. Even if I'm not training for a particular event, I still want to be able to perform at or near my best. This leads me to do a lot of research and experimentation.
Turmeric is one of the strongest natural substances I’ve found to reduce inflammation and it plays an important role in my anti-inflammatory diet. I’ve been a big fan of Turmeric, also known as Curcumin, for years and was actually involved in the development of a Turmeric product in my product development role at a previous company.
Turmeric has a long list of healthy benefits, but what most attracted me are its strong anti-inflammatory properties. Repeated long, hard workouts trigger a lot of inflammation. The key to recovering faster, and staying healthy, is to consume a healthy diet and practice restorative techniques to minimize inflammation. It's nice to know that there's also research showing Tumeric improves memory, eases depression, and kills cancer cells.
Having worked in the sports nutrition industry as long as I have, I've become a skeptic of new product claims. So when I met the creator of Pranjali Turmeric Paste, Ruma Patel, and she gave me a sample, I didn't have expectations of it working any better than regular tumeric root.
After a few days of using Pranjali Turmeric Paste daily, I felt fresher. The various aches and pains I typically experience with regular training seemed to subside and my energy level was a bit higher. It wasn't that hard workouts didn't affect me, it's just that I seemed to be able to bounce back from them more quickly; thus, meriting its' claim of improved bioavailability over raw tumeric.
I also like that I can easily add this product to any meal. Convenience should never be underestimated when it comes to consuming something regularly. If it isn't convenient, it's too easy to get out of the habit of using it regularly and then it just becomes another item collecting dust in your pantry. In addition to adding it to recipes, it's mild flavor makes it easy to mix with with your coffee, tea, or eaten right off the spoon.
Since this is one of the few nutritional products I use consistently and recommend to friends, I decided to offer it through our online store. It's backed by the same 100-percent money-back guarantee as our own products so you can try it risk free.
One word of warning. Turmeric is known to stain most things with which it comes in contact and Pranjali Turmeric Paste is no exception. Be careful not to spill it on your clothes or favorite table cloth. There’s a good reason why Turmeric is used as a natural food coloring!
Pranjali Turmeric Paste is made here in Colorado Springs using organic, non-GMO and gluten/wheat-free ingredients, and creates an easy and tasty way to incorporate turmeric into your diet.
