It’s not always easy to maintain motivation and energy levels when training. It’s also important to be mindful of not over-stressing your immune system while ensuring your body is fuelled with the adequate vitamins and nutrients it needs. Thanks to Arctic Juice & Café, Spartan’s official coffee, juice and energy food partner, we have packed a punch to help you fuel and fight towards your best Spartan 2022 race year ever
The benefits of ginger and turmeric are the immunity warriors we love! Our friends at Arctic Juice & Café have created one of their signature juices “Vitamin Boost” as well as a specialty “G&T Latte” coffee around these powerful, ancient remedy nutrients. A “must have” to supplement your winter training sessions, as well as a zingy & delicious way to incorporate into your every day. For Arctic, this dynamic duo form part of their Superfood staples, which help remedy, restore & rejuvenate.
“With the combination of vitamin C-rich fresh orange and apple juices, blended with immunity boosting ginger and turmeric, topped off by black pepper. Particularly important in winter…”
The perfect winter boost and tonic to your every day.
Ginger and turmeric have been used for centuries across Asian based cultures to cure many health ailments.
Both are rich in many essential nutrients, such as magnesium, Vitamin C, iron, calcium and zinc as well as anti- inflammatory properties.
With their spicy, tangy flavours, each originates from the Zingiberaceae family and are rhizomes. Rhizome is a stem which is later modified into a root.
The list of benefits seems endless but for Spartan winter training, undoubtedly the season’s best tonic:
Ginger is loaded with bioactive compounds and nutrients that are beneficial to our brain and body. It is also believed to protect against Alzheimer’s disease.
Ginger contains gingerol, a substance with powerful medicinal properties. And helps to combat colds and typical winter congestion symptoms.
It also contains magnesium, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, phosphorus, copper, iron, calcium and zinc in small amounts.
Turmeric is an excellent source of iron and manganese and is reputed to dramatically increase the antioxidant capacity of the body.
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric and offers powerful anti-inflammatory effects.
Also believed to help lower the risk of heart disease, delay ageing and assist wounds to heal.
A great liver detox…post the other festive G&T’s perhaps?!
