After an indulgent Christmas and New Year break, you might have set up the goal to start a new workout routine and improve your physical health.

Exercise comes with a wide range of benefits; from better energy and improved cardiovascular function, to boosted mood and weight loss. However, it puts an extra demand on your body, so if your diet isn’t providing enough of the nutrients you need, you might struggle with under performance and slow recovery. With a lack of adequate nourishment and rest, the body can come under a lot of stress, which can also lower your immunity and increase your risk of getting colds and infections.

Ensuring a nutrient-rich diet and supplementing with the correct nutrients can help you exercise better, and recover quicker:

Perform Intensive
