Turmeric - the ultimate post-workout recovery

We’ve got the spice on how turmeric can support your post-workout recovery + bonus smoothie recipe

Let’s talk about the connection between post-workout routines and turmeric. Yep, the golden spice hailed as a miracle worker for everything from inflammation to Instagram-worthy lattes. 

We all know, in the fitness world, what you do post-sweat sesh is just as important as the workout itself. Recovery isn't just a luxury; it's the secret sauce to muscle gains, performance boosts, and overall wellness. And that's where our superfood blends, starring turmeric as the MVP, come in. 

The lowdown on muscle recovery 

Before we jump into the benefits of turmeric, it’s worth clarifying what it means to have a good post-workout recovery. Recovery after a gym, bike ride or dance-in-your-bedroom sesh isn’t just about kicking back with a protein shake. It’s about muscle repair, glycogen refuelling and especially dodging any injuries. If you skip out on proper recovery, you might just sit on the sidelines for a while with more aches than gains.

So, what’s the key to a good post-workout routine then?

Pumping yourself with all the right nutrients to aid recovery and maximise muscle repair. According to National Institutes of Health the post-exercise period is the most critical part of nutrient timing, with the body being most receptive to nutrients within 30 minutes post-exercise.

Experts recommend a 3:1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein for optimal recovery, alongside hydration to restore lost fluids and electrolytes.

Now we know about post-workout muscle recovery, what does turmeric have to do with it?

Turmeric, with its golden colour and warming touch to both savoury or sweet dishes and drinks, boasts potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Incorporating turmeric into daily routines can benefit fitness enthusiasts (like you) with many health advantages, including:

  • Regulating blood pressure
  • Enhancing intestinal health
  • Bolstering the immune system 
  • Warding off cold symptoms
  • Maintaining optimal cholesterol levels
