Inflammation Reduction and Recovery Boost for BJJ Athletes Over 40: A Complete Guide

I hit 45 last year. Things change. As much as I wish it were still the case, I don't recover as quickly and am a little slower to get going. However, instead of pining for times gone by, it was time to start figuring out how to make the most of what I have now. My biggest thing - is recovery - and a prime candidate for optimising my recovery (or lack of it) - is inflammation.

Anxiety in a Coffee Cup: Understanding the Link and Finding Balance

I love coffee. It's fair to say I am highly addicted to it. However, I am also becoming more and more aware of how the stimulant affects my state of mind in the mornings once I have had a couple of cups. As someone who has been diagnosed with anxiety issues (namely PTSD) - I have to accept and acknowledge that caffeine doesn't help that. But - what to do about it? 

Simply put, for most hunters/outdoors people - we can instantly narrow it down to the Performance or Expedition Ranges. As a general option, I would lean towards the Expedition Range for reasons I will cover off in this article.

Radix Nutrition provides a variety of options – and sometimes it can be a little challenge to figure out which one to get.

Simply put, for most hunters/outdoors people – we can instantly narrow it down to the Performance or Expedition Ranges. As a general option, I would lean towards the Expedition Range for reasons I will cover off in this article.

To provide a bit of a comparison, I got the same ‘meal’ from both the Performance and Expedition ranges. Flavour wise – they were both the Mixed Berry flavour.

Before you even open the packets, you get your first indication on the difference between the two products.

While the Expedition range weighs more (about 40 grams), its physically smaller – and this is common across the entire offering. Essentially, you can fit more of these into a backpack.

While the packs weight a little more, they require less water to rehydrate them (200ml vs 225). At the same time, it provides more calories per serve. Essentially, it provides more bang for the buck, for less pack size, water and fuel use heating said water.

Opening them up, you can see some visible differences in the packs, this continues after adding water and letting them re-hydrate for the time specified. The expedition (on the right in the photos) is visibly ‘whiter’ – which I think is the result of the coconut fats being added in to bolster the energy content.

Flavour wise – the performance was more acidic and berry like (sharper) and the expedition more coconut, heavier and ‘fatter’ (in a good way). My personal preference was for the Expedition, while my expert 5 year old helper prefered the lighter taste of the Performance.

There was no issue at all with the flavour of either of them really, as indicated by the regular ‘yums’ and thumbs up from Claudia.

The Expedition Meal was enough to happily fill me up. Claudia got around a 1/3 of the way through the meal.

Once rehydrated, the size of the Performance Meal is larger – so – if you physically prefer a larger meal – the Performance might be the better option – though – I can eat a lot, and I wasn’t left wanting with the Expedition either.

Simply put – between this and the Apple and Cinnamon option – breakfasts, (bar the mandatory bacon fry up early in the piece!) while in the back country would be sorted. I could happily live on the them for quite a time, and, due to time and effort being put into the nutritional profile in all the Radix product – I could actually be eating a more nutritious breakfast than most of the time at home!
