Feeling unproductive from muscle soreness, fatigue and tension? Sore Muscles lotion helps resolve lactic acid build up, micro muscle tears, chronic aches, travel fatigue and spasmodic muscular- skeletal imbalance.
There are 2 main causes for muscle soreness from exercise. Burning symptoms are from lactic acid buildup,which resolves within a few days. The day after soreness peaks 72 hours after onset. This is due to tiny muscle tears in muscle fiber during exercise. Any muscle burning or soreness that does not improve over 1 week, seek medical evaluation. NSAIDS are not proven to reduce or speed recovery of muscle soreness and fatigue. Aromatic Tumerones have been successfully used to speed recovery.(Available on our supplement menu).
Certain foods help speed healing. Watermelon contain amino acid, L- citrulline and adequate potassium for a speedy, delicious recovery time. Other super foods include cherry juice and fresh cherries,raw pineapple and papaya ( avoid raw pineapple and papaya with gastrointestinal inflammation and ulcerous conditions),milk products and fermented foods, and ginger root.
To avoid exercise soreness, practice dynamic movements rather than stretching before work outs.These movements may include leg lunges and rolling the arms and shoulders like a wind mill. Hydration before and after exercise, as well as recovery, is a must.

We are organic growers and distill and prepare our products onsite.Massage 2- 3 x daily until soreness abates. This is also a great blend to support strength in low back and limbs.
