Leading an active lifestyle?


Whether you run in the mornings, hit the gym every day or just make sure to get in hikes at the weekend, if you’re constantly active in your everyday life, your body might feel the toll. Energy support, muscle recovery and sleep assistance are just a few of the things that go hand in hand with an active lifestyle. I consulted Bandon Road Store Manager John for his help on what is good to take if you’re always on the move. During his teenage years, John developed a passion for working out and shortly after, decided he would like to improve his knowledge on fitness and nutrition. He completed a series of courses involving Diet and nutrition, personal training, and nutrition consulting.

Here’s just a few options that we have for those leading an active lifestyle:

1. Protein:


Family-founded and run, Kylie and William O’Donoghue’s mission was to create a brand that caters for the nutritional needs of women, to create an environment where they belong and to create products that consisted of only the most premium ingredients.

4. L-Glutamine

One Nutrition Glutamine is ideal for building and strengthening muscles. It supports exercise recovery as glutamine becomes essential during intense mental and physical stress as demand is greater than supply and the body cannot generate enough.

5. Viridian Sports Electrolyte Fix

Electrolytes are mineral salts dissolved in the body’s blood and fluid, they carry an electric charge and therefore can affect the bloods pH and muscle function. This Viridian Electrolyte Fix contains electrolytes in an ionic form to support effective hydration as well as natural trace minerals. Hydration is key for an active lifestyle especially now in the summer when the weather should be warmer and the sun more prominent.

5. Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha has more than just a few benefits: it can support stress, sleep, cognitive function, and One Nutrition’s Ashwagandha has a dosage of zinc which is beneficial for normal testosterone levels as well. From an active lifestyle view, Ashwagandha has gained popularity for its benefits with endurance support and helping with minimising stress and cortisol, which naturally occurs when putting your body on pressure.
