DJs are spinning! Bands are touring! Festivals and concerts are back!
Ready to dance your worries away and sing at the top of your lungs?
Of course you are!
But is your body ready?
Here are some ingredients in Hydronique that will help you return to those good vibes only:
- Vitamin C: Antioxidant which may protect your cells from stress-induced damage. May also help with immune support both during and after that weekend of fun. It’s water-soluble so any excessive will be excreted. 1000mg per day is more than sufficient.
- Magnesium: For relaxation and stress release. May also help alleviate muscle cramping throughout your body (think legs, jaw, neck). The Glycinate form is better tolerated than other forms. 60mg per day is a good start.
- Grape Seed Extract (contains Vitamin E): Contains antioxidants which may help protect your cells (especially of the immune system and brain). Vitamin E is fat-soluble so stored in the body once consumed. Don’t overdo it!
- Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR): Antioxidant derived from amino acids, which also may improve exercise (think dancing) endurance and recovery.
- B-vitamins: Many B-vitamins help support energy production, but each one has unique properties. For instance, Vitamin B6 and B12 may provide the mental clarity and energy you need, without the jitteriness of other aids (like caffeine or energy drinks). These are water-soluble so anything excessive will be excreted.
- Green Tea Extract: Contains a catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a potent natural polyphenol antioxidant with a ton of health benefits including protecting cells from free radicals.
- Electrolytes: These are minerals that can conduct electricity when dissolved in water, including sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, phosphate, magnesium, etc. It is especially important to continually replace your body’s sodium and potassium stores, which are depleted during exercise (such as dancing).
Other things to consider:
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) and Coenzyme Q10: Antioxidants which may play a role in metabolism and possibly have neuroprotective effects. However they can be expensive and unstable. Also, ALA is notoriously understrength in products. Buyer beware!
Amino acids: Taurine is an amino acid that is necessary for normal muscle functioning and may improve athletic performance; it is relatively safe though the recommended daily amount has not been established. There are also other supplements that are not listed here (ie. 5-HTP, Lysine), however these may have side effects, so be sure to do your research!
