Hyland's product review and giveaway!

7 miles on the schedule today....done but it was a cold one out there this morning.


So the folks over at Hyland's asked me if I was interested in reviewing some of their products.  I said that I would be happy to.  While I did not know much about Homeopathic products, I have heard about them and their benefits.  In addition to these items, Hyland's sells all kinds of remedies not only related to runners but these here are specific to what many runner's would be interested in using.  Here's what I was sent:

The first item is Bioplasma Sport with electrolytes.  Basically you open these packets and they dissolve in your mouth.  While you can mix them with water, you really don't need to and they taste great in my opinion.  The product is to help with injuries, pain in muscles, joints, fatigue.  Given the electrolytes also in it, it helps get you going again after a tough work out.  While I don't typically use anything like this on a regular basis, I've certainly had a few tough runs over the last month and it did seem to help make me feel better after the workout.
 The next product is to help with Leg Cramps.  Honestly, I have still not tried these yet.  Since they are for leg cramps, I have not been running enough to have any leg cramps.  Actually, the only time that I had a leg cramp was in my first marathon and I think much of that had to do with not fueling properly.  I sure wish I had these at that time though.
 The next item is Arnica.  These are essentially for pain relief.  I used these on several occasions.  I tend to use Advil but I think these are a great alternative to that being they are natural.  These also dissolve in your mouth and taste good.  I've tried them several time and the pain went away so I can say that they do work.
The last item I was sent was some Muscle Therapy gel with Arnica.  I've never been one to think that rubbing something on your muscles helped that much.  However, I can tell you that I have used this a couple times on my knee and also on my foot after some tough runs and it really worked!  I put this on and within 30-45 minutes the pain in my muscle went away - amazing.

Probably the best thing about all these products is that they are all natural, homeopathic products that are safe for you to use on a daily basis.  I'm not one to put drugs into my systems(except Advil) so this is a really nice alternative to help maintain a healthy lifestyle.
