‘Podium’ plucks some of the highlights of the running, health, and fitness worlds and gives them all a medal! Here, we give a special nod to just some of the Irish companies who deserve a little love

Revive Active

Who doesn’t like the sound of a product that helps support cartilage, bones, connective tissue and muscle function? That is exactly what Joint Complex, from Irish supplement company Revive Active, is promising those of us who live active lifestyles and experience joint issues from time to time. Joint Complex is ‘Informed Sport Certified’, so it is suitable for professional and elite athletes and it contains 10 ‘active ingredients’ including glucosamine, hyaluronic acid and Peptan collagen peptides. The reviews for this product tell a positive tale of a product that helps people and is trusted by them – we concur and we understand why! Joint Complex is available to buy online at reviveactive.com as well as pharmacies and health food stores nationwide.

Nuasan Active Bodycare Kit 

Impress the runner in your life to, or treat yourself with this beautiful Nuasan gift set, which contains a body wash, body wipes and a gorgeously soft microfibre towel.

The wash contains arnica and magnesium to aid muscle recovery but it is the peppermint that does it for us; it is cooling and smells fabulous – both in and out of the shower! The wipes, advertised as large, are more on the average size we think, but they are so lovely that we didn’t mind. Made with bamboo, aloe and peppermint, they are a refreshing and cooling way to clean on the go and, significantly, are biodegradeable. And, the towel contains a zipped pouch at one end, perfect to safely hold said wipes and wash, or even keys and your phone (when we are safely back at the gym). Made in the west of Ireland, the Nuasan product range also contains a foot spray, which protects against athlete’s foot and nail fungus. All products are sustainably manufactured.
