What’s in JJ Virgin’s gym bag?

It’s no surprise that Bioenergy Ribose is a must-have in JJ Virgin’s gym bag. This fitness and nutrition expert, who is also a New York Times best-selling author, has embraced a natural approach to health throughout her high-profile career.

“Bioenergy Ribose helps muscles recover faster, so there’s less stiffness and soreness. When I work out, I bring my Virgin Diet All-in-One protein powder with a teaspoon of ribose in a blender bottle. I just add water for a great recovery shake.” She adds that if you are traveling, you can easily pre-sort this combo in little plastic bags.

Everyone from Dr. Phil to high-performance athletes and A-list celebrities have relied on JJ’s expertise. A board certified nutrition specialist, she is also board certified in holistic nutrition and a certified nutrition and fitness specialist.

The contents of JJ’s gym bag also include:
• Dehydrated or low-roasted almonds to stave off hunger. “If you don’t like almonds, you can substitute other nuts.”
• Rhodiola rosea: “This helps fight stress and fatigue. It’s a great workout booster!”
• A super-light pair of Nike or New Balance gym shoes.
• Lululemon workout pants. “I prefer lightweight clothing that doesn’t weigh me down as I’m working out.”

And JJ’s best training tip? “Consider burst training. Scheduling an hour for aerobics class in your already-loaded schedule only creates more stress for both your mind and body. According to Charles Poliquin, aerobic exercise raises cortisol (your stress hormone), accelerates aging and lowers testosterone. Burst training is the efficient, effective antidote to an hours-long gym routine that you can do in just minutes. I love to combine it with weight resistance for the two best kinds of exercise on the planet. You can get both with my 4 x 4 Workout, which fits into your busiest schedule: You can knock the whole thing out in just 15 minutes, three times a week.”

Mom Talk Radio’s Maria Bailey learns how Bioenergy Ribose helps moms on the go

It’s easy for moms to let details such as health and exercise fall by the wayside. Between driving the kids to practice, cleaning up after their messes and managing their ravenous hunger, exhaustion is inevitable. Not to mention that a lot of moms also work full-time jobs! Fortunately fitness and nutrition expert, JJ Virgin says that taking care of yourself doesn’t have to take more time.

She suggests incorporating spurts of exercise into your day, rather than trying to pencil in an hour-long session. The latter can lead to burnout and might not provide the workout quality you need. To shorten recovery time and combat muscle fatigue, she recommends Bioenergy Ribose. Ribose occurs naturally in the body and helps drive the replenishment of our cellular energy. However, the production of ribose in muscle and heart cell tissue is limited, and its demand cannot be met naturally, making supplementing with Bioenergy Ribose critical. Bioenergy Ribose is the only ribose that is patented. The FDA has issued a no questions letter stating that Bioenergy Ribose is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS). No other ribose can be legally used in the U.S. for foods, beverages and supplements.
