Carrot & Ginger Super Shake

Most of us could benefit from a daily immunity boost from extra anti-oxidants. Fortunately, my featured recipe today, Carrot & Ginger Super Shake, delivers on both counts.

Carrots are a great source of Vitamin A which aids in improved immune function and eye sight.  

It also plays an important role in the healthy maintenance of the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs. In short, Vitamin A is good stuff.

Paired with the other ingredients in my super shake - Ginger, Celery, Cucumber and Parsley, you've got yourself a powerhouse of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.

It's quick to prepare and provides a healthy pick-me-up at any time of the day.

Each super shake yields, just 175 Calories; 40g Carbohydrates; 3g Fiber, 2g Protein and zero grams of fat.  

Our all-new Super Charge! Xtreme 4.0 is perfect for athletes, bodybuilders, and fitness enthusiasts who want to enjoy better workouts via increased energy, endurance, strength and mental focus.
Super Charge! Xtreme 4.0 contains the 10 most effective sports performance enhancing ingredients available today. 
You'll get the scientifically proven amounts of each ingredient required to maximize workout output, all in one super concentrated daily dose. Every ingredient is listed on the label with their corresponding amounts. Unlike some companies, nothing is hidden in a so called "proprietary blend".  
Super Charge Xtreme 4.0 is backed by real science and exhaustive testing. During our 8 week study at the University of Kansas, 30 trained male subjects were separated into two groups. One used Super Charge! prior to training, the other did not. The Super Charge! group increased their bench press max by 70% and their squat power by 110% greater than the control group.

How Can I Reduce Muscle & Joint Soreness?

Our "Ask Lee" today comes from Joanna, L. NYC. USA

Hello Mr Labrada, I suffer from a lot of soreness in my hamstrings after I train , quite often it becomes worse a couple of days after training. I also feel a slight pain in the back of my knee joint. I was told that holding a heat pack on my hamstrings would help.

Is this true, and if so what type of heat pack would you recommend?

Joanna L.


Hi Joanna, you seem to be suffering from a combination of D.O.M.S , (delayed onset muscle soreness) and sore joints. 

In regards to using a heat pack as a solution, there's no data showing that a heat pack reduces muscle and joint soreness significantly, if at all.

Some studies show increased flexibility using a heat pack in conjunction with extensive stretching - but not a reduction in the severity of soreness in a muscle, joint or connective tissue.

The most practical advice I can give you,  is to ensure you warm-up thoroughly. If you're consistently jumping into a hamstring workout without a warm up , then you're certainly at a greater risk of injury, aches and pains.

I recommend a low-intensity, 5 minute warm-up. Choose whichever cardio machine you prefer . Then follow that warm-up with two sets of light hamstring work before you start your full-effort sets. Try that for a couple of workouts and see if your soreness decreases.

If not, it's probably simply a case of D.O.M.S, (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). There's nothing to be concerned about, it's  absolutely normal after resistance training.

The joint pain however in the back of your knee, may need attention. I would consider making an appointment with your medical practitioner to be safe. Always treat pain in your knees seriously.

As we get older, it's common for joint injuries and soreness to become more acute. I see this with a lot of our older customers. I generally recommend two products, both of which get fantastic customer feedback.


The first one is Elastijoint. It helps protect and maintain healthy joints and connective tissue. Importantly in your situation, it also assists in post-workout joint and connective tissue recovery. 

It's cost effective as well. One tub will last you a month. The positive feedback from our customers keeps rolling  in -  you can read their comments about how much it's helped them here:

The second product I recommend is Sorenzyme 

It's specifically designed to reduce D.O.M.S . It also increases your workout recovery and performance. Again, it's not an expensive supplement, a single bottle will last you a full month. 

You can read Sorenzyme reviews here:

Try taking both of these for 1 month and I'm convinced you'll see the difference Joanna.

Thank you for taking the time to write in.  

Until next time,  stay healthy and strong. 
Get lean, live lean!

Yours for a Lean Body,


Lee Labrada,

Founder & CEO Of Labrada Nutrition.
