TRAVELLING SUPPLEMENTS: 2. EXTRAS
Here are a few more travel supplements that are worth considering:
OMEGA 3's*: Really useful for balancing out omega 6s - found in fried foods, vegetable oils etc - which has inflammatory properties and can worsen any existing join pain if the ratio of omega 6: omega 3 is too high.
Try for 5-10g a day of omega 3's to help balance, or try to get omega 3 rich sources in your diet (salmon, mackerel, tuna, hemp, flax, chia, walnuts).
ZMA*: Amazing for fighting off a cold (thanks to the zinc - actually better than Vit C!). Magnesium by itself is incredible. It's involved in over 300 enzymatic processes, hormonal regulation and CNS recovery, improves digestion, helps with sleep, relieves stiff and sore muscles, and to top it off...It's a common mineral deficiency. Worth keeping in your diet even after travels!
MELATONIN: For those who don't sleep properly, or struggle with jetlag and hate that drowsy feeling the morning after taking a sleeping pill. Melatonin is worth trying. It's a natural hormone produced in your body to aid sleep - it's helped me get over jetlag pretty quickly if I'm doing a 4+ hr time difference.
Stay Healthy & Happy!
