Blueberries Are A Runners New Best Friend & A Giveaway


A delicious blueberry smoothie helps me to run faster.


    It has been three weeks since I started running again after my numerous injuries, which were linked to wearing the wrong running shoes. I am quite happy with my progress of easing back into running. I am now running four days a week and walking one day. On the days that I run, I am able to run for five minutes and then walk for thirty seconds doing this for 40 minutes. For the most part, my ankle feels good after running. I am still bother with the tightness in that one ankle, which was diagnosed as Achilles tendonitis but lots of stretching seems to help. My knees, thankfully have not experienced any problems, which is a good thing as most people my age complain about that. I have been noticing a clicking sound in my knees when I exercise on the stairs, though, so I did some research and discovered that blueberries might just be the thing that I need to help with the clicking in my knees and more.


  I discovered a wonderful delicious product made from blueberries and it tastes great by itself and in smoothies. This Hyaluronic Acid Blueberry liquid made by Neocell gives my joints the lubrication that they need to remain healthy.This yummy blueberry liquid not only has blueberries in it but also Hyaluronic Acid: Nature's Moisturizer. So what is Hyaluronic Acid and how does it help me with running? Here is the cool info that I discovered on Neocell's website:

HA is one of nature's most water loving molecules and its role in the control of tissue hydration and water transport in the body helps support the appearance of smooth, supple skin, as well as provide lubrication to the joints and eyes.

NeoCell’s HA Benefits:*

   I love thatNeocell's Blueberry liquid will help in cushioning of my joints so I can continue to run and keep my joints healthy. Maybe the extra cushion in my joints will stop the clicking noise in my knees too. I just love adding this delicious liquid to my morning smoothie and if I forget to do so, then I drink my one tablespoon serving later in the day. I love the taste of blueberries so I make my smoothie with more blueberries. I also love adding spinach to my smoothie as the flavor of blueberries mask the color and taste of spinach. Check out my delicious smoothie recipe and then enter my giveaway to win a bottle of Neocell Hyaluronic Acid Blueberry liquid.
