Ski-ing, snowboarding and all winter sports mean hard work for muscles and in spite of fitness training and warm-up routines there are going to be times when these muscles need extra help to recover.
Natural Hero’s sports recovery products help sidestep muscle fatigue leaving the body refreshed and ready for the après-ski activities. Natural Hero Hot Ginger Muscle Rub contains an effective blend of premium grade Ginger Root, Rosemary, and Sweet Fennel essential oils and delivers warming, soothing actions to ease muscle fatigue. Cool Peppermint Muscle Spritz creates an instantly cooling sensation with the aid of ingredients including Peppermint Oil, White Willow and Witch Hazel to ease stiff and aching muscles.
Both products conform to EU Cosmetic Standards and are free from ibuprofen, sprain relief and numbing agents, and are also free from parabens, SLS and petrochemicals.
Emily Sarsfield is Britain’s No. 1 ski-cross athlete. She is one of Team GB’s 2014 Winter Olympic hopefuls.
“Ski-cross is a full contact race where four skiers compete head to head against each other on a course which tests skills to the limit with slalom turns, moguls, jumps and much more. Natural Hero’s sports recovery products give me everything I need for my muscles to recover from the demands I’ve made on them. The Hot Ginger Muscle Rub provides warmth to ease tired muscles and I love its non-greasy formula. It’s also great used to warm up muscles pre-exercise. If my muscles are stiff I turn to the Cool Peppermint Muscle Spritz which instantly soothes and cools. I wouldn’t be without them!”
