Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to do another longer run.
Perspective is everything.... Now a 5 miler is a long run, a month ago a 5 miler wasn't even a dream i was having. A mile walk was body wrecking. lol.

I will go out tonight, and find these products.
A couple questions... I don't do smoothies.... Can I take them in another form?
Is safflower/grapeseed and faxseed oil universally the same potency?
Can I take tablets at the ratio you have listed?
I can't wait to be able to experience benefits that so many people take for granted.
Once again, thanks for the information L, you are proving to be my guardian angel!

Unfortunately, there are no capsules or pills that contain the correct ratio (unless you go to a specific website where the products are available based on this book's recommendations--and, trust me, they're expensive since they're the only game in town). It's just as easy to mix the ratio yourself, and the cost of the oils is minimal. Since you don't do smoothies, a thick juice will suffice. I've just found that thin juices cause the oils to sit on top (yuck!), so you can taste/feel the oil. In a smoothie (or just juice whipped with some yogurt or a banana), the oil gets mixed in so that you can't even detect it.
I prefer safflower oil over grapeseed oil because it has less of a taste, but I listed the grapeseed oil because it contains more or less the same amount of Omega 6s and 3s as safflower oil. If you find that the mixture helps you, you might consider reading the book to learn why these oils are able to oxygenate your cells and allow you to exercise without lactic acid buildup in your muscles. I spent a lifetime in pain until I read about this solution, and I will be forever grateful.

Hello! I am 28 and newly Celiac as of January, so I have been Gluten-Free and lactose free for almost three months. I have been iron deficient for over 10 years. I haven't felt 100% yet but definitely see the light at the end of the tunnel some days. One issue I wanted to bring up is muscle fatigue during exercise.
I was a college tennis player and would cramp up almost every match, no matter how much I trained/stretched, how many bananas I ate or hydrating drinks I drank prior to the match. I started training for my first half marathon in january and just finished a 10 mile race for training purposes. Every time I push myself hard for a run or if the run is longer than 6 miles, I would be completely out of commission the rest of the day. I slept the whole rest of the day after the 10 mile race last weekend and still felt 'off' the next day. Primary symptoms: muscle fatigue, dehydrated, tight muscles and just overall tired. I am very active, play on a tennis league and volleyball league during the week on top of working full time and running or walking after work prior to my leagues. I don't always react as extreme as noted above but I definitely do not feel as in shape as I should be with all of my exercising.
My vitamins and minerals all came back WNL. I take Juice Plus, B12 supplement and benefiber daily on top of a well-balanced diet. Wondering if anyone else has any of my same concerns and issues and if you have a solution. Also, any thoughts on malabsorption? Please let me know if I am not making sense, I may not be expressing my questions well. I have many... Thanks for reading!
malabsorption and you may need a ton more magnesium and calcium and vit D than udusl dur to previous glutn damage and malabsorption. I had to increase that for bad episodes just to make through the day (post chrmo/radiation) and during pregnancy (had gluten episoders then too..mild though) but I wasn't athleticaly active. Depends on how much your taking now and where your body is at in recovery. This is primarily based on my experience and communication with a natural path about suppliment uptake and some research I did on Magnesium/calcium/vitamin D. Water intake should be enough that you pee clear since your so active, you need to get lactic acid out of your muscle or you will feel like you've got a crumby day to come (flu like symptoms in the mjuscles). Im also a licensed massage therapist for over 6 years, so I gotta push the water increase Hope you can find a solution and enjoy your activities.
