High Adventures in the Great Outdoors

Be Spunki

No matter if I am traveling or how long my days are, in a bid to balance stress and all that comes with a busy schedule, I try to get exercise in whenever possible.

While it is more often a very enjoyable part of the day, it can at times feel a chore, especially the motivational bit at the beginning when you either have to scrape yourself from your mattress early or get off the couch when you feel like Netflix, craft beer and chill.

As one grows older, things do not tend to get easier either.

Along came the supplements of Be Spunki.

I started incorporating their REBOOT into my schedule, which is meant to help optimise the key hormones connected with health to the level they were during your twenties.

REBOOT is a melange of 9 natural and organic herbs and active ingredients that shall aid with boosting testosterone levels, enhancing physical and cognitive performance as well as the improvement of immune functions, stamina, energy and endurance.

When it comes to such supplement I usually approach them with a heathy dose of scepticism as once you have invested in them, the placebo effect might kick in.

However, after a while of using REBOOT, I felt a sense of better general wellbeing, for a lack of a better term. It was easier to get a cardio or gym session in even after long days and stressful situations seemed to be easier to cope with.

The recovery times from more intense sessions, including half-marathon preparations shortened and I felt like during the flu and colder seasons I was less prone to falling sick, for which certainly the Zinc components played an integral role.

It was no longer after running a half-marathon that I started using their RECOVER product as well. Now, with post workout recovery I feel it is a tad easier to feel tangible benefits straight away as the combination of easily-assimilable vegan protein combined with adaptogen herbs is never not conducive to get things metaphorically and literally back on track,

The range of active ingredients read like a best of the good stuff: Spirulina, enough Maca to make John Joseph proud, Pomegranate, Asparagus and Broccoli extracts and good ole Ginkgo biloba among others.

The most tangible benefit I felt after using REBOOT for a while is that I was able to get back into it within twenty-four hours and that the discomfort from sore muscles subsided much quicker than without it.
