It is a pretty universally acknowledged that there are great benefits to natural products, and certainly the trendsetting PR oracle that is the cult of celebrity will have you believe that Hollywood is a mecca for toxin free eco gods and goddesses.
Nonetheless, despite the increasing popularity of a more natural way of life when it comes to what we put onto our skins and into our bodies we still have an underlying reverence for chemical based solutions to health and fitness – it’s all very well sipping a herbal tea when everything’s rosy, but the first sign of a cold and your head screams ‘LEMSIP!’
What is frequently overlooked is the power of chemical free products as a way of life instead of a luxurious frill, but their strengths are not lost on Julie Neville and her footballer husband, Everton captain – Phil. Having overcome health trials and tribulations by helping the body to heal itself Julie now runs a household and a business (WinNaturally.com) devoted to natural living, and as a women embroiled in a world of fitness she is even converting the world of football to a more wholesome lifestyle (one player at a time), proving that top class athleticism doesn’t rely on supplements and chemical substitutes.
And proving the natural way is a winning formula, here are a few of Phil’s top tips from his match day routine!
On the ball … Phil drinks 500ml of an electrolyte drink such as the Kinetica 100% Recovery drink to prepare for a match.
Extra time … A Trekk Flapjack or Trekk Peanut and Oat bar are the perfect fuel post-match.
Final Whistle … At the end of the day have a long soak in a bath with three scoops of Ancient Minerals Magnesium Flakes. These are fantastic at helping muscles recover post-match and really do ease any aches and pains. The magnesium is also a relaxant and helps you to sleep which I often struggle with the night of a match day.
