As we get older, our muscles and joints may ache after workouts or especially long treks (think: long distance running or cycling) — so if your muscles hurt or you feel depleted after a long race or bike ride, take a gulp of Play Again Now, an anti-inflammatory and immune system support drink supplement to combat body stiffness and muscle soreness and help you recover faster.  Physician-recommended and clinically tested, it contains hyaluronic acid and MSM, an organic sulfur compound known for its nutritional value, joint health benefits and light mood uplifting effects. It really benefits anyone who needs help recovering from physical effort or exhaustion. Find it at


Arnica has been used since the 1500s to soothe muscle aches, reduce inflammation and heal sprains. Sebastian Kneipp, a Bavarian priest and one of the founders of the naturopathic medicine movement in the 19th century in Germany, invented the Kneipp remedies using only the natural essences of plants in association with a pharmacist. Today his remedies are still used throughout the world. For sore, post-workout legs, soak them in Kneipp’s Arnica Joint & Muscle Bath or try the Joint & Muscle Active Gel botanical formula with camphor. Apply liberally and massage to ease those sore, tired muscles. You’ll feel a cooling effect, and will be ready to run the next day. Find more information about this healthy, ancient remedy at
