Our Doctors' Favourite Products For November
As we settle into cooler weather and leave the typhoon season behind, we look forward to staying consistent with our health routines. Here are the products our doctors recommend for November to stay on top of a strong, healthy body.
With fewer junk trips to distract us from our workout routines, weekends can include efficient workouts followed by effective recoveries. Dr. Ariel's favorite recovery tool is a protein shake after a vigorous workout. Women especially need to refuel with protein within 30 minutes of a workout. Her go-to is Nutribiotic Organic Rice Protein Powder, found on iHerb. https://hk.iherb.com/pr/nutribiotic-raw-organic-rice-protein-plain-3-lbs-1-36-kg/44487 Dr. Ariel mixes the powder with ice, water or homemade almond milk, raw cacao powder, peanut butter, and banana for a naturally sweet and calorie-dense recovery.
If the workout doesn't exactly go as planned and you end up with an injury, Dr. Damian uses Mueller Kinesiotape to tape up an injury. It is the best brand for athletic taping up of your injured body parts to help rehab or train or support the joints. It's easy to emulate a professional athlete by taping up the injured area. Watch a couple of YouTube videos about kinesiotaping first. https://escapade.com.hk/collections/mueller/products/copy-of-mueller-mtape-athletic-tape?variant=39346853740631
After a day of working out, make sure the recovery continues well through bedtime, allowing your body to naturally shift with its circadian rhythm. Blue light causes our brain to think it still needs to be in an alert state, causing disruption to our sleep. Mitigate that by changing the color of the light emanating from your screens in the evening hours. Dr. Eleanor recommends F.lux, a free software you can download that adjusts the color of your computer display according to the time of day, so it’s "warmer" (more yellow/orange rather than blue) in the evening. This helps reduce the adverse effects of light exposure before bedtime. https://justgetflux.com/
