(I do own other running clothes… it just so happens that I’m wearing the EXACT SAME THING in these two pictures. Ooops…)
I see advice commonly given is to immediately apply ice on bumps to promote healing and minimize bruising. That’s rarely a reality for me, especially when bruises show up rather surprisingly. So here are a couple things that I’ve been incorporating the past several months:
Grape Seed Extract:
* The Naturopathica gel is also AMAZING for sprains. When I hurt my ankle in the clumsy Elliptigo experiment , rubbing this gel into the ankle made an immediate impact. It felt so much better within moments.
** I truly do buy my supplements from Swanson and they did not ask me to post their name. I’ve been buying from them for years and years. Way back to when their website was really crummy looking… and even back to when it was all through a print catalog. I’m hard-pressed to think of any reason to not use them! They have great deals and a wide selection. I also buy my Chia seeds from them!
Side Note: I did receive the Naturopathica gel for free to review on my site. I had kind of figured I would just write a standard review of the properties, but after figuring how how it helped me in real life application, I thought I would share that in this format!
