The Pickle Juice Company
The Pickle Juice Company has agreed to sponsor the Dallas Rugby Club for the 2015-2016 campaign through product and financial considerations. As some of you with muscle cramping history that are already using it can attest, the stuff works and it works well. Here’s why: Recent studies are revealing that muscle cramping is not a physiological thing as much as it is a neurological thing and electrolyte imbalances are merely a contributor rather than the cause. Pickle Juice works for cramping not because of its heavy electrolyte concentration, though that’s extremely helpful for maintaining hydration, but because the Acidic Acid in some of the ingredients functions as a neural blocker. Essentially, it disrupts the message being sent from the brain to the muscle that is telling it to engage (ergo: cramp). That is why Pickle Juice works better than just about any other remedy to prevent and treat muscle cramping so be sure to support this sponsor by liking their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/picklejuicesports and following them on twitter https://twitter.com/PickleJuice2001 .

Learn Effective Skills – Bak Fu Pai is a system of marital forms, exercises, meditations, and medicines from southern China. Bak Fu Pai, which translates roughly to White Tiger Kung Fu, is also known as the Emperor’s Art. The dedicated practitioners healed, advised, and protected 6 generations of Chinese Emperors. The system has remained a closely guarded secret of the Doo family for almost 400 years. The system was so secretive, and so widely revered, that it was said that “The only time someone saw the White Tiger system was immediately before death.” Considered lost in the early 1800’s. the system remains one of the most secretive, mysterious, and powerful systems in the world today. The system has been kept meticulously preserved over the last 4 centuries, and remains the exact same system Fong Doe Duk created in the 17th century. This system, in its complete form, is now being made available to the public through the generosity of Grand Master Doo Wai.
