Think of kelp as the dark, leafy greens of the sea!
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that food can be your first line of defense against fatigue and occasional stress – both of which can affect energy levels during your workouts and recovery time after your workouts. But what about adaptogens? Like cordyceps?
