What is Chi Running?
Chi Runners are taught to combine the Tai Chi principles of focus and flow with the power and energy of running. Runners learn to engage the core, align the posture, relax the limbs, and take plentiful, light steps, landing midfoot. By directing your attention to the process of running (form and technique), you’ll reduce stress on the body, which will lead to hugely improved running technique with fewer injuries, improved speed, and more pleasurable, relaxing runs.
Why Take Heart Essentials?
Heart Essentials is a unique formulation of nitric oxide, l-arginine, l-citrulline and vitamins and minerals which helps the cardiovascular system works as it should.
Nitric oxide occurs naturally in the body and as we age, nitric oxide depletes by up to 85%. We can, however, replenish through supplementation.
The dosage is entirely safe as we are simply returning to the body what it has lost through ageing; also, as nitric oxide doesn’t travel well, Irish-made Heart Essentials retains potency on its short journey to the consumer. Easy on the stomach, it also has a pleasant citrus berry flavour.
Heart Essentials also contains:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
- Vitamin K2
- Folic acid
Why Take Joint Essentials?
Joint Essentials, with a pleasant taste of lemonade, contains a wide range of important ingredients to support bone and joint health. This is an original formulation, based on years of research by nutritional scientists which is designed to:
- Maintain connective tissue
- Contribute to the normal function of cartilage
- Contribute to the normal function of bones
To keep everything working as it should, we need a diversity of proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and micronutrients to interact at a cellular level. That’s why Joint Essentials brings together lots of carefully chosen ingredients, which work separately and together, to support osteo-health in a fuller, more effective way. These include:
- Vitamin D3, boron, manganese
- Vitamin K
- Selection of B vitamins
- Essential trace minerals such as zinc & selenium
