Post-Workout Muscle Aids

Sore Muscles and Joints After a Workout? Natural Remedies Can Help Alleviate Muscle Pain After Exercise.  

Magnesium Muscle and Sleep Cream 

Magnesium is essential for helping muscles contract and relax properly. Taking magnesium can help prevent cramps, spasms, and muscle fatigue. A way to take magnesium could be through supplements, such as our Sea Pure Magnesium Capsules, which can be taken orally, or directly apply our Magnesium Muscle and Sleep Cream. This can be massaged into aching muscles and joints after a workout aid in muscle recovery. A key ingredient of our cream is Zechstein magnesium chloride. Zechstein magnesium is harvested from a primordial sea over 250 million years old and untouched by human activity and pollution.  

Epsom Salts 

Alternatively, soaking in Epsom salt (chemically known as magnesium sulphate) can help with alleviating muscle pain. When you soak in an Epsom salt bath, your skin absorbs magnesium, which can help replenish levels in your body. Magnesium helps regulate the activity of various enzymes in your body, including those involved in muscle function. 


In order for muscles to recover, a diet rich in nutrients and protein is needed. Include complex carbohydrates like whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes in your post-workout meals to replenish glycogen stores effectively, and healthy fats that have anti-inflammatory properties may help alleviate muscle soreness and promote recovery. Include sources of healthy fats such as fish like salmon and mackerel, nuts, seeds, avocado, and olive oil in your diet to support muscle recovery. 


 Stretching before and after a workout offers several important benefits for your body. Performing dynamic stretches before a workout helps to increase blood flow to the muscles, which can reduce the risk of muscle strains, pulls, and other injuries. It also helps to improve muscle elasticity, making them less prone to injury during exercise. Stretching after a workout helps to relax and lengthen the muscles that have been contracted and shortened during exercise. This promotes muscle recovery by reducing muscle tension, soreness, and stiffness while also increasing blood flow to the muscles and flushing out metabolic waste products, such as lactic acid, that accumulate during exercise. 

Gardeners Sporty Tea

Gardeners Sporty Tea is a supplement that supports the muscles and joints and helps them to relax after strenuous exercise. It contains Cramp bark (Viburnum opulus) which is known for its muscle-relaxing compounds. Research also suggests that cramp bark has cardiovascular benefits, such as helping to lower blood pressure and improve blood circulation.  

Cold Therapy

Cold therapy, such as applying ice packs or taking a cold bath, can help reduce inflammation, numb soreness, and alleviate pain. Apply cold ice packs to the affected muscles for 15-20 minutes at a time, making sure to wrap them in a cloth.  

 Heat Therapy

Applying heat to sore muscles can help increase blood flow, relax tight muscles, and alleviate pain. You can use a heating pad, warm compress, or warming cream to experience the benefits of heat therapy. Our Capsicum and Ginger Warming Cream can be applied to affected areas to stimulate blood supply and relieve tension. 

Exercise is crucial for maintaining overall health and well-being. It offers numerous benefits, including improved cardiovascular health, enhanced strength and endurance, better mood and mental health, and reduced risk of chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Regular physical activity also promotes better sleep, increased energy levels, and a stronger immune system. 

However, it's important to strike a balance and avoid over-exercising. Over-exercise, or excessive exercise beyond what the body can safely handle, can lead to various negative consequences, including increased risk of injury, muscle fatigue and weakness, hormonal imbalances, compromised immune function, and mental burnout. It's essential to listen to your body, give yourself adequate rest and recovery time, vary your workouts, and avoid pushing yourself to the point of exhaustion or injury. Finding a sustainable exercise routine that aligns with your fitness goals and allows for proper recovery is key to long-term health and fitness success.
