You may remember that I tried Zaca’s Recovery Patch a while back. As I said then, I’m not exactly the target audience for it. It seems to be for people who party – a lot! However, there are benefits for those who travel and exercise a lot. I fit that bill. When they wrote me to see if I wanted to try their Recovery Chews,…
