Recovery and performance

Athletic training and competition increase inflammation. Your ability to recover from exercise-induced inflammation is controlled by your diet.

Our recommended products for the resolution of inflammation caused by training and competition are OmegaRx Sport, MaquiRx and PastaRx. The PastaRx is the ideal post-workout recovery meal and is ideally suited for maintaining stable blood-sugar levels throughout the day to maintain better performance.
