If you want to give yourself the best chance at getting to your race startline in your best shape then you have to look beyond your training programme.
While there is no complete replacement for a healthy diet and exercise program, today’s modern diet does not provide the nutrients we need to not only stay healthy, but also have energy and prevent premature aging.
Every excuse you have not to run or exercise can be addressed by the nutrients we ingest to support our body.
Got a guts ache?
Coming down with something that you think might affect your performance?00
In a mental funk?
doTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality Pack is what I recommend to any runner who has a goal in mind.
I have been using LLV since I got started with essential oils, except for one month when I stopped taking them and came down with my first sickness in 12 months. Coincidence? I think not.
I usually succumbed to at least two bouts of bronchitis each winter but I went through back to back winters (including long haul travel and bereavement stress) without falling sick once. Taking LLV is the principle reason I believe I maintained my health.
As one of doTERRA’s most popular products, doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack is full of essential nutrients, metabolism benefits, and powerful antioxidants designed to help promote energy, health, and lifelong vitality.
It’s three supplements in one pack. I’ll go into the make-up in a moment but firstly, why supplement?
When I trained with a coach for Ironman, supplements were part of my training regime. Every integrative doctor, nutritionist, naturopath or switched on individual I know does supplement and with high quality supplements – you get what you pay for.
The truth is, with the world we live in today, we don’t get everything we need from the environment – air and soil and plants and other natural foods – for complete nutritional health.
Even the organic farms are growing in soil that is more depleted than at any other time in history.
Our wider environments have a toxic overload more than at any other time in history.
Our bodies encounter situations daily that we simply didn’t have in pre-industrialised days. Working inside all day, artificial light, toxic pollution in what we eat, what we put on our skin and what we breathe in.
Taking LLV will give you more energy, better quality sleep, help your body to recover from your runs, give you more clarity, improve your moods and so much more.
This product is so good that it has a 30 day guarantee on it. If you don’t feel any benefit then you get your money back.
