At the end of race day celebrations, definitely have the Swisse Ultiboost Liver Detox on hand to give your body a boost and help with recovery. The key ingredient is St Mary’s Thistle, which has traditionally been used to help support liver health and function, and was in fact used by Ancient Greeks and Romans as a treatment for liver ailments.

The Swisse Ultiboost LIver Detox effervescent includes B vitamins to assist with the energy production, especially given B vitamin levels might be depleted after a long day of sipping drinks at the races.

Swisse is available at leading supermarkets, pharmacies and health stores across Australia. For more information visit www.swisse.com/au

blk premium fulvic-enhanced all natural mineral water is something that’s a bit more than your usual bottle of water. It’s water infused with alkaline fulvic minerals that provide hydration and nutrient benefits without sugar, carbs or calories.

As it’s name might suggest, blk is black in colour that comes from the fulvic trace minerals that are added to pure water. Distilled over millions of years, fulvic trace minerals are rare organic materials, originating from pre-historic plants that boosts the hydrating properties of water and quickly energises each cell. blk is also high in electrolytes meaning that it is the perfect drink to sip during the day between drinks to help restore electrolyte levels and help with hydration. Perfect as an end of day drink too!
