Forever Living Ambassador Ben Cohen on his love for Argi+
The lighter evenings and sun-drenched days of July make this midsummer month the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors and feel the many benefits of being active. Whether it’s a jog around your local park, a scenic cycle ride or hiking in the hills, make sure you take advantage of the glorious British summer and learn to enjoy exercising.
If you’re looking for a sports drink to support you in your exercise plan, then look no further than our amazing Argi+ product. This berry-flavoured drink is particularly popular amongst active people as it provides a daily recommended dose of a ‘miracle molecule’ known as l-arginine. L-arginine is an amino-acid, a building block for proteins that has been fortified with a whole host of synergistic vitamins including vitamin C, K, D, B6 and B12.
Former England rugby star and F.I.T. Ambassador Ben Cohen is a huge advocate of Argi+ and takes it on a regular basis throughout the day. In this exclusive interview, Ben reveals why he loves this Forever Living product so much, and why nutrition and fitness are more than just skin deep for him.
When did you first discover Argi+?
I’ve been taking Argi+ for a few years now as my partner Kristina, was taking it and recommended it to me. I have always been a very active person and I do circuit training every day so discovering Argi+ was of great benefit to me.
When do you take Argi+?
I like to take Argi+ in conjunction with exercise – either before, during or after a workout – but I’ll also take it as an afternoon drink when I’m rushing around during the day as a busy working parent! Each serving of Argi+ contains 80mg of vitamin C (100% of RI), which contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, so it gives me a great pick me up when I’m feeling like I’m starting to flag.
How important is health and wellness to your daily life?
I’m a strong believer in nutrition being the key to looking and feeling well. It’s all too easy in modern-day life to take our health for granted and indulge just a bit too much – to the point that we are no longer taking care of ourselves. The detrimental effects of stress on the immune system also seem to be hugely underestimated, but it is something I’m acutely aware of now. I was recently rushed to hospital after catching a virus, which I couldn’t fight due to a low immune system. This led to me becoming unwell with glandular fever, developing a high infection in my blood and being diagnosed with pericarditis, when the fluid-filled sac around your heart starts to swell. That was a real wake up call for me and although I was already leading a healthy lifestyle before my hospital admission, I think I was far more stressed out than I realised. I’m currently on the road to recovery and gradually easing myself back into exercise, whilst making sure I don’t run myself into the ground and that I take some time to relax!
Who would you recommend Argi+ to?
There are so many amazing benefits in a glass of Argi+ that I would recommend it to many different types of people. Sporty types and gym-goers are an obvious category of people who would benefit from Argi+, but people like my mum would also benefit – she is a carer and works long shift work. It’s also a great product for busy parents, people with physical jobs and just about anyone who will benefit from the extra vitamin boost that Argi+ can offer.
