The Details: Speed Up Recovery

Beet juice is a good source of potassium. This mineral acts as an electrolyte, helping muscles and nerves function properly. Low potassium levels are a known cause of muscle cramping, weakness, and fatigue.

Beets may improve exercise stamina by increasing levels of nitrates in blood plasma, which reduces the amount of oxygen needed in the muscles during training. Also beneficial is beet’s potential ability to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and speed muscle recovery.

Cucumbers are wonderfully hydrating and rich in vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C and Magnesium which are important for muscle recovery.

The Juicer: Nama J2 Juicer

The Nama J2 Juicer is taking the juicing world by storm!

I made the Red Rogue on the Nama J2! I use this machine the most for my daily juicing!

Why do I use this juicer the most of the many, many juicers I own? Because it’s so damn easy to use! All you have to do is drop chunks of produce into the top hopper, close the lid, and let it rip! If it fits you can juice it without the need to chop everything up into tiny bits.

You also don’t lose on yield or nutrient extraction, as this is still a true cold-press machine – an important criterion for any serious juicer. This model is designed for the person looking to get a lot of great juice fast and easily without giving up an ounce of quality.
