As the evenings stretch again and spring is on the horizon, it’s a great time to get back outside training, running, cycling or walking again. As well as increasing your physical fitness, exercising helps reduce stress and boosts your energy levels. It can also be a good way to meet people and get more involved in your community.
At New Leaf we have a wide range of sports products to support your journey, whatever the level of exercise you do. We support sports people who compete at a national level as well as people starting out on a journey towards better health.
You should eat protein (e.g. chicken, eggs, soybeans) as soon as possible after exercise. Protein is helpful for recovery and for building muscle. Many people find protein powders a convenient way to hit protein requirements. We stock Optimum Nutrition whey based protein powders as well as vegan protein powders by Third Wave Nutrition and a specialist recovery protein by Tailwind.
Some people suffer from cramping and stitches when they push themselves, sometimes these are triggered by dehydration and a loss in electrolytes. SaltStick are great to rebalance your electrolytes on the move. We also have a new PR Lotion that effectively delivers game-changing bicarb to the muscles, unlocking power and endurance gains and preventing cramping.
