Black Pepper Adding a touch of to turmeric increases nutrient absorption of turmeric. It works by simulating the digestive enzymes of the pancreas and enhancing digestion. So amazing in your morning smoothies! Turmeric has become known as an alternative pain medication for osteoarthritis, injury, repairing bone and Inflammatory bowel disease. I have been recommending Turmeric to my clients in their morning protein smoothies or post work out.


Protein is important! especially whilst doing any form of exercise or during busy periods when your immune system needs strengthening. Protein builds and repairs muscle and transports used hormones, so is essential not only for men but for women, especially leading up to their period. Whey protein is great post training, to rebuild and repair tissue and muscle. Women need not be fearful of bulking up and putting on more weight but to understand the importance of protein. Especially after training. Protein transports hormones and enzymes and is involved in almost every function in the body. This is essential for energy. You will find increasing your protein intake will help you focus more throughout the day and help tone your body.
