Boost immune response
Support cartilage, tendon, ligament & bone health
Athletes with an established baseline of optimal nutrition have a shorter treatment time and faster return to sport, up to a 25% reduction in time required compared to athletes experiencing nutritional deficiencies.
Rigorous training causes free radicals (reactive oxygen species) to collect in muscle, lungs and connective tissue. Rapid reversal of free radicals requires ample antioxidants, which may shorten the response time associated with athletic conditioning and recovery from injury and surgery.
Endurance athletes require more key nutrients to maximize their training. Important supplementary nutrients include zinc, selenium, vitamin C, vitamin E, alpha lipoic acid, calcium, omega-3s flaxseed oil, magnesium and plant-derived antioxidants.
Athletes sometimes suffer later in life as a result of participation in a sport. Preventive nutritional support fuels natural pathways for healing, thereby promoting lifetime physical activity.
High physical stress can prolong recovery from viral illnesses. Optimal supply of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants is fundamentally important to maintaining an immune system.
Healing of early cartilage injury is possible, but dependent on nutrient factors like glucosamine, chondroitin, and vitamin E.
Tendons are maintained by very few cells and these cells require anti-oxidants and collagen-directed nutrients like vitamin C, zinc, copper, manganese and glucosamine. Tendon cells need “all the help they can get” especially during flexibility training. Major interruptions in tendon exercise (greater than 4 weeks) are undesirable and may lead to loss of tendon strength.
Ligament strength is nutritionally dependent. Similar to tendons, ligaments respond to regular training and optimal nutrition by becoming stronger and less susceptible to injury. The nutrients vitamin E, vitamin C and glucosamine are needed for optimal training response. Following injury, healing ligaments have increased nutritional requirements. A six month recovery period may be necessary to regain adequate ligament strength.
Optimal nutritional allows bone to maximize its intrinsic strength during training by becoming more resistant to traumatic fractures, stress fractures and bone bruises. Bone depends not only on calcium and magnesium, but also on the key nutrients vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin D, potassium, zinc, copper and manganese.
