A new fitness supplement dubbed PrePair is poised to become the best remedy for the damage caused by lactic acid build-up—that cinder-block feeling in your legs that comes from hammering the slopes. Studies done in Japan and Germany suggest that the new med, which uses an extract from a prickly pear cactus fruit, dramatically decreases muscle recovery time.

Pop the pill—available at perfect-equation.net—start exercising, and 30 minutes later, your body’s naturally occurring heat-shock proteins spring to life, increasing healing blood flow to sore legs. Without PrePair, heat-shock proteins take three hours of physical activity to begin mending those micro muscle tears.

So, while you’re in the tram line, talking smack about racking up five bell-to-bell days, self-medicate and you just might reach day six.
