There are hundreds of products out there that are marketed to help you enhance your workout. When choosing the right products for your pre-, mid-, and post-workout regimen, it is important to choose safe products that support your body! Young Living offers clean, safe, & effective products that will have you feeling your best!
usage & safety
Throughout this page, we will make suggestions for oils and products you can use every day to support your wellness and workouts. Before we dive into specifics, let’s talk about usage and safety.
AROMATICALLY: Put 6-8 drops of an oil or a combo of oils in your diffuser. The diffuser will send the oil into the air and fill the room with your essential oils.
TOPICALLY: Apply essential oils to your skin.
Diluting first is recommended. A conservative dilution would one drop of essential oil with 10-15 drops of coconut, grape seed, or almond oil and then apply it to your skin.
Citrus oils like Lemon are photosensitive. Please avoid sun exposure for 12 hours after application to areas where you have applied citrus oils topically.
Avoid putting essentials oils in the eyes or ears directly.
INTERNALLY: Young Living oils are pure and are labeled as Generally Regarded as Safe by the Food and Drug Administration. Because of their purity, some people like to ingest their oils to avoid “smelling” like an oil, or to support their body from the inside out.
There is no right or wrong way. Chose one and try it out! Try out each option to see which ones you prefer.
seed to seal promise
Young Living has a seed to seal guarantee and promise. The company abides by very strict guidelines to fulfill this promise to us.
– YL owns its own farms, which no other major company does. It has partner farms that have to abide by the same standards.
– YL won’t plant on soil that has had been in contact with ANY chemicals within 50 years. (Organic standards are only five years!!)
– YL picks the absolute best seeds from strong thriving plants.
– YL hand weeds and uses its own oils on plants for pest control to avoid harmful chemicals.
– YL harvests at peak times to ensure you get the highest quality oil.
– YL distills on site without chemicals.
– YL tests every batch multiple times throughout the process with state of the art equipment.
All of these factors make a huge difference in quality and effectiveness. If a batch doesn’t meet YL standards for any reason, it doesn’t get bottled up to distribute. YL would rather have something go out of stock than let an inferior product slip through to us. It’s rare to find a company with such transparency and high standards. For more info, go HERE.
Everybody needs antioxidants! Antioxidants are important to maintaining health and wellness by attacking free radicals in your body. Aerobic metabolism from extreme exercise can cause oxidation in your body, producing free radicals. Daily antioxidant intake can neutralize this process so that your cells stay stress-free.
There are many foods you can add to your diet like blueberries, strawberries, artichokes, kale, red cabbage, beans, beats and more. The easiest way to get all the antioxidants you need is to take 2 oz. of NingXia Red supplement daily! It tastes SO good!!
NINGXIA RED is one of Young Living’s most favored products. It is one of the most popular products ordered on Essential Rewards orders, too! (You’ll find out what that is soon!) Ningxia Red is formulated with Ningxia wolfberries, a super fruit from the Ningxia Province in China. They have been a part of traditional Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years.
Wolfberries are often marketed as a superfood because they are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. These berries are among the foods highest in antioxidants. Antioxidants have a positive effect on your health by creating an unfriendly environment for free radicals and should be taken daily. Support healthy blood sugar levels, your immune system, eye health and total wellness with just 2-4 oz. of Ningxia Red daily!! Learn more about Ningxia.
agilease & powergize
When we exercise we burn energy stored in our body. Depending on the type of workout, our body burns fuel in different ways at different stages (low intensity vs. high intensity, quick power movements vs. long, steady cardio workouts). We can fuel up and store energy through food and plant-based supplements.
POWERGIZE™ is a supplement that is infused with Blue Spruce, Goldenrod, and Cassia essential oils. It was formulated to help individuals of all ages boost stamina and performance. With botanicals from around the world, it helps sustain energy levels, strength, mental and physical vibrancy, and vitality when used in addition to physical activity. As you can see, taking two capsules daily will definitely support your active lifestyle.
Exercise also increases energy levels, helps manage a healthy weight, improves your mental health and mood, helps balance blood sugar levels, builds muscle mass, builds bone density, and so much more! Healthy joint mobility allows us to move at our optimal level during workouts as well as performing day-to-day functions as we age.
AGILEASE is a supplement that will help maintain your muscle, bone, and joint health. This is especially beneficial for athletes, as well as middle-aged and elderly people who want greater mobility and flexibility in their joints through the reduction of inflammation. Young Living uses unique and powerful ingredients such as frankincense powder, UC-II undenatured collagen, hyaluronic acid, calcium fructoborate, and a specially formulated proprietary essential oil blend of Wintergreen, Copaiba, Clove, and Northern Lights Black Spruce, oils that are known for their joint health benefits to combat natural acute inflammation that may occur after exercise. Take two capsules daily as a preventative measure to protect your joints and cartilage.
DID YOU KNOW?
When your supplements are infused with essential oils, they become more bioavailable! This is a unique feature that the regular supplements you have been taking don’t offer. Add these supplements to your regular monthly subscription box a.k.a. your Essential Rewards order!
When you’re feeling unmotivated or too tired for your workout, reach for NingXia Nitro®. After you take Nitro you will feel energized and alert without the crash hours later like typical energy drinks.
– Supports mental and physical health
– Provides a boost before or during your workout, thanks to naturally occurring caffeine
If you are more of a carbonated drink type of person, then this one is for you! NingXia Zyng contains the same whole-fruit wolfberry puree found in our popular superfruit supplement, NingXia Red® which means it’s high in antioxidants. It also contains pear and blackberry juices, and a hint of Lime and Black Pepper essential oil, which gives it a very light and fresh taste.
It delivers 35mg of naturally occurring caffeine and has only 35 calories! Compare that to the leading energy drinks!
You need energy to fuel your exercise. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) produces the energy that is used to power movement of muscles while working out. ATP is the body’s biochemical way to store and transport energy. However, ATP is not stored well in cells; therefore, once muscle starts using ATP more ATP must be made quickly.
ATP is created in three different ways: creatine phosphate, glycogen, and aerobic respiration (using oxygen). As you can see, your breath is a very important piece in providing your body what it needs to keep your muscles moving during exercise.
Essential oils like Eucalyptus and Peppermint are the perfect tools to use for optimal breathing! There are many blends that contain these two. Here are some of our favorites…
Breathe Again Roll-On
This Roll-On is the perfect companion for tough workouts. It combines oils such as Peppermint, Myrtle, and Copaiba with four different types of Eucalyptus and the naturally occurring constituent eucalyptol, all to create a powerful, invigorating experience and a rejuvenating aroma. Conveniently roll on as needed under your nose or on your head, neck, or chest to awaken and invigorate your senses before your workout.
Raven™ is a cleansing blend of Ravintsara, Peppermint, Eucalyptus Radiata, and other essential oils. Raven creates a cooling sensation when applied topically to the chest and throat and is great to diffuse before or during your workout.
It’s no secret that hydration is SO important for your health. A good rule of thumb is to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water each day. Drink more if you complete an intense sweaty workout! If you weigh 200 pounds or more, try to drink at least 100 ounces of water a day.
Now that you are drinking enough water, let’s take it to another level and make sure you are neutralizing the acidity in your body. If you eat a lot of foods like meat and sugar, you may tend to be more acidic than someone who eats a lot of vegetables. A balanced pH is thought to play an important role in maintaining overall health and vigor.
AlkaLime® is a precisely-balanced alkaline mineral complex formulated to neutralize acidity and maintain desirable pH levels in the body. Infused with lemon and lime essential oils and organic whole lemon powder, AlkaLime also features enhanced effervescence and biochemical cell salts for increased effectiveness. It also comes in individual packets for easy grab-n-go use!
Your workout regimen shouldn’t end when you leave the gym or step off the trail! If you want lean muscles, you need to support your body post-workout. Both muscles and nerves are considered electric tissues. That means they need electrolytes or minerals to function. In order to ensure proper exercise recovery, you need to rehydrate the body.
AminoWise™ is formulated to give you everything you need to help your body replenish fluids and minerals that are used up during exercise. It includes a muscle performance blend, recovery blend, and hydrating mineral blend to build and repair muscles, reduce lactic acid, and replenish minerals lost in exercise. #powerhouse
– Helps support muscles during and after exercise to help fight fatigue and enhance recovery
– Reduces lactic acid induced by exercise through a complex blend of antioxidants and minerals
– Helps support the production of nitric oxide, which can improve vascular blood flow
– Contains branched-chain amino acids, which have been shown to aid in preventing muscle breakdown from exercise
– Supports hydration by replenishing important minerals lost during exercise
– No preservatives, synthetic colors, or artificial flavors
– No added sugar or artificial sweeteners
Mix one scoop of Wolfberry Lemonade flavored AminoWise with eight fluid ounces of water and drink it during or immediately after your workout!
pure protein complete
Muscle protein synthesis, the process of repairing and rebuilding muscle fibers, uses amino acids from protein to encourage healthy recovery and muscular growth. Not getting enough protein immediately after your workout is one of the biggest workout mistakes you can make.
A protein shake post-workout is a great way to get the 20-30 grams of protein that is recommended by professionals. Protein powder is an isolated nutrient source, so it provides a lot of nutrition for relatively few calories. It is also a fast and easy option when you are on the go. It is important to go with a high-quality protein and not just any ol’ protein shake.
Pure Protein Complete™ provides 25 grams of protein and a full range of amino acids to help your post-workout muscle recovery. Mix your choice of Pure Protein Complete—in Chocolate Deluxe or Vanilla Spice flavor—with water or the milk of your choice and drink it within 45 minutes of your workout. This proprietary blend of enzymes, amino acids, and protein will give your body the post-workout support you need.
PURE PROTEIN COMPLETE
– Supplies 25 grams of protein with an optimal five-protein blend in only 170 calories
– Provides a full range of amino acids, including d-aspartic acid, threonine, l-serine, glutamic acid, glycine, alanine, valine, methionine, isoleucine, leucine, tyrosine, phenylalanine, lysine, histidine, arginine, proline, hydroxyproline, cystine, tryptophan, and cysteine
– Offers protein metabolism support
– Supports ATP production, the energy currency of the body, with elevATP—an extract of ancient peat and apple
– Supports post-workout muscle recovery
topical muscle and joint relief
Giving it your all in a workout usually means sore muscles. Luckily there are a few YL products that can help with that!
Cool Azul Pain Cream provides cooling relief from minor muscle and joint aches, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains. It is formulated with two powerful, synergistic active ingredients– methyl salicylate found in Wintergreen and natural menthol found in Peppermint. A little goes a long way with this one!
Deep Relief Roll-On is the BOMB! The combo of oils gives a cooling sensation when applied and it really does provide quick relief to your muscles and joints. The roll-on top makes it really easy to use.
Ortho Sport Massage Oil is a combination of pure vegetable oils with therapeutic-grade essential oils such as Wintergreen, Peppermint, Thyme, and Oregano. This is the easiest and most affordable way to get a full body post-workout SPA treatment.
Cool Azul Sports Gel has an aloe base, which makes it cooling on your skin. It is also very hydrating.
Many people turn to exercise to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. Regular exercise may help ease depression and anxiety by releasing feel-good endorphins, natural cannabis-like brain chemicals (endogenous cannabinoids) and other natural brain chemicals that can enhance your sense of well-being. When you don’t have the chance to work out or are taking a rest day, you can easily turn to your Roll-on blends for some added benefits of relaxation.
Stress Away has a unique and pleasant aroma with a distinct mix of Vanilla and Lime that helps relieve feelings from occasional stress. Stress Away contains vanilla’s naturally occurring eugenol. This blend also includes Copaiba, which has a history of beneficial properties; Lavender, with its refreshing and calming scent; and Cedarwood, which features the powerful plant constituent cedrol. All of these ingredients are expertly blended with the exotic scent of Ocotea, a unique, Ecuador-sourced essential oil.
Tranquil Roll-On is another favorite. The name really does say it all. It is a blend of comforting aromas such as Lavender, Cedarwood, and Roman Chamomile. Just inhale deeply or roll onto your wrists, chest or neck to enjoy a moment of tranquility. This roll-on is perfect before bedtime to promote a restful night’s sleep helping you wake up refreshed and ready to hit the gym!
I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for healthy snacks to keep in my gym bag or in the car when I am rushing around. Having these bars handy when I am desperate for food helps keep me on track with my healthy lifestyle. The Slique Bars are really yummy and have a dual-targeted satiety approach to help you feel fuller, longer.
One of my favorite ingredients is the Baru Nut. It has a very high nutritional value, fewer calories and fat, and great taste! Its flavor is a mix between peanuts and cashews with a hint of cocoa. Chia seeds are another bonus ingredient in the Slique Bar. They are high in fiber, a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, and high in antioxidants and protein. The Goldenberries, Bing cherries, Wolfberries, and honey give it an exotic sweet flavor.
