Aging well – bones and muscles
Top up your diet and keep yourself at peak performance with our essential vitamins, minerals and botanicals to support muscle growth and recovery. Our supercharged supplements will help your body to repair damaged tissue, protect cells from damage by free radicals, and form the key proteins that contribute to muscle growth and strength.
Vitamins B6 and B12 are possibly two of the most important ingredients for muscle growth. Vitamin B6 helps our bodies to use and store the energy we take in from protein and carbohydrates in our diet, and also helps our bodies to form red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. Vitamin B12 also contributes to the production of red blood cells, immune system cells and allows us to release the energy we store from food.
Any vitamins which are powerful antioxidants, such as vitamin C and vitamin E will be beneficial for fighting free radicals which can impair muscle recovery and growth. Vitamin C also contributes to collagen production, which is essential for supporting and strengthening connective tissues and bones.
Your muscles feel sore the day after a workout as your body has been exposed to stress, which causes microtears and inflammation. This soreness fades over time as your muscles repair themselves and strengthen in the process. As a natural antioxidant that can speed up the healing process, vitamin C is a great choice for helping your sore muscles recover from a workout.
