Wigan have formed a new partnership with The Turmeric Co. in order to aid player nutrition and recovery.
The Turmeric Co, founded by former West Bromwich Albion and Wales international footballer Thomas Hal Robson-Kanu, has a strong presence in elite sport working with the likes of Brentford FC, Leicester Tigers and Sale Sharks as well as fellow Super League clubs St. Helens and Salford Red Devils.
The shots include all-natural ingredients including turmeric, beetroot and ginger, with the Turmeric Co. the UK’s leading producer of naturally produced turmeric shots, which are used by a number of professional sports clubs and elite athletes to enhance their recovery and holistic health.
Wigan Warriors head of nutrition, Darren Marsh, said: “We are excited to partner with The Turmeric Co and to integrate their range of products into our performance programme for the benefit of our players.
“The Turmeric Co’s fantastic range of products have anti-inflammatory properties so are used throughout the training week to enhance recovery and support the immune system.
“This is even more pertinent this season with an intense schedule of fixtures resulting in shorter turnarounds and even more pressures on our players.
“The players have had access to The Turmeric Co. products for over a month with really strong feedback so we look forward to working closely with the company to build a long-term, mutually beneficial partnership.”
Thomas Hal-Robson Kanu, Founder and CEO of The Turmeric Co. added: “Clubs like Wigan Warriors are taking exactly the right steps to ensure they fully support their playing squad with recovery, benefitting from Turmeric’s many properties such as anti-inflammatory – crucial for all elite athletes, but particularly in high contact sports such as rugby.
“To be partnered with a side, steeped in such a rich history as Wigan is a huge honour for us as we support them continue to perform at the highest level.”
