Damage on a cellular level occurs every time you exercise, as muscle tears down in order to rebuild. A well-balanced exercise program consists of strength, endurance and cardiovascular activity. Muscles and other tissues that support joints weaken when they aren’t moved enough, causing joints to lose shape and function.
People of every age are exercising more than ever before! Along with exercise come aches and pains that may have been induced or aggravated from a previous condition or injury. Building activity into your life is always important, but particularly so if you have arthritis. All categories of exercise (aerobic, strength or flexibility) are beneficial for pain and inflammation sufferers.
The dilemma that all healthcare professionals face when treating athletes is the obvious fact that pain inhibits
movement and movement is required for training; however, most pain relievers inhibit healing and prolong rehabilitation.
The keys to successful therapy are relief of pain and inflammation without inhibited healing.
Aging causes the connective tissues to lose their flexibility. This is due in part to decreased stability of the cell membranes and collagen fibers. This loss of flexibility contributes towards the risk of injury during exercise and other forms of intense activity. Most sports injuries are caused by either accidents or overuse.
Strengthen & tone muscle with Recovery™
The goal of preventing sports injuries focuses on strengthening the supporting structures of the body.
Athletic injury and age-related decline is generally associated with connective tissue structures such as the ligaments, tendons, and other joint structures. Muscle tissue itself is not affected as often as is thought.
The connective tissues lose flexibility with age due to:
- Decreased production of fluid maintaining long-chain glycosaminoglycan structures
- Decreased stability of cell membrane and extracellular collagen fibers
- Decreased production of glycosaminoglycan structures also results in decreased size of muscle groups.
Athletes are prone to sports related injuries of connective tissues (ligaments, tendons, etc.) during the course of their athletic pursuits.
Connective tissue protects and reinforces the muscle fibers from stress and trauma. The protective sheaths receive all the transference of force that occurs during muscle use, and therefore the bulk of the stress associated with athletic activity may result in injuries.
Recovery™ will improve endurance & flexibility
Recovery contains Nutricol™, which is proposed to increase the structural integrity of connective tissue structures and to maintain optimum tissue hydration. The potential results after using Recovery™ are:
- Decreased susceptibility to injury
- Decreased tissue breakdown
- Faster recovery rates (shorter recovery times)
- Decreased lactic acid buildup
- Decreased pain and inflammation
- Increased overall training capacity
Reinforcing membrane and matrix structures through increasing aldimine reducible cross-linking of collagen fibers. This reinforces the strength and elasticity of connective tissue structures such as fascia, dermis and blood vessel walls.
Neutralizing reactive oxygen species (ROS) and catabolic enzymes before they can negatively impact cellular and extracellular structure and function. This results in increased membrane receptivity to growth factors such as insulin, somatomedins and thyroxin that are required for anabolic repair and cellular maintenance.
Decreasing catabolism of membrane and matrix collagen and glycosaminoglycan (GAG) structures via decreasing the pathological production of catabolic enzymes and other biochemicals such as collagenase, elastase, hyaluronidase, tumor necrosis factor, nitric oxide synthase and xanthine oxidase. These biochemicals are released from immune, microbial and damaged cells and cause further damage to connective and epithelial tissue structures, resulting in joint pain, inflammation, capillary fragility and other soft-tissue damage
Stabilizing cellular membranes, preventing the release of compounds that promote inflammation such as histamine, serine proteases, prostaglandins and leukotrienes by non-competitively inhibiting the release of associated inflammatory enzymes such as cyclo-oxygenase, lipoxygenase and phosphodiesterase
Increasing the stability and production of protective epithelial mucosal surfaces in the digestive, respiratory and genitourinary tract to decrease the absorption of antigens (environmental compounds that may initiate immune or non-immune mediated inflammation, spasm and damage within muscle tissue structures).
Recovery™ is an all-natural non-drug medicine that addresses inflammation and breakdown of tissues at a cellular level. The primary active ingredient in Recovery™ is Nutricol™— a potent, proprietary bioflavonoid complex of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), theaflavin, proanthocyanidins and resveratrol (from grape and tea). These naturally occurring plant antioxidants have been shown in numerous clinical studies to profoundly affect the health of the cells.
- Engineered to treat and prevent degeneration and inflammation at the root of the problem
- Reinforces membrane and matrix structures
- Halts damage that initiates inflammatory and spasmodic reactions
- Increases membrane receptivity to hormones such as insulin, IGF and thyroxine (required for anabolic repair and healing)
- Stabilizes collagen strength and elasticity of connective tissue such as cartilage, synovium, ligaments, tendons, and dermis of the skin, etc.
- Neutralize negative impact on cellular and extra cellular structure and function
- Prevent the release of inflammation promoters
- Improves protective mucosal surface integrity (digestive, respiratory and genitourinary tract)
Recovery™ goes beyond simply addressing symptoms; it is a cell structure-oriented health science that addresses the pathogenic factors of degenerative and inflammatory conditions.
Recovery™ (Nutricol™) may be safely combined with other medications or taken on its own to help counter inflammation. It does not produce unpleasant side effects.
Heal faster after injury, surgery & over-training
- A proprietary mix of proven ingredients purified from grapes and tea consisting of EGCG, theaflavin, proanthocyanidins and resveratrol
- These anti-catabolic compounds are known to halt tissue damage and inflammation
- All Natural Nutricol® decreases trauma - from chronic lameness, surgery, injury & over-training
- Increases the cell's resistance to damage & improving it's ability to repair damage
The significant water and fat soluble antioxidant actions of Nutricol® produce the following anti-catabolic and anti-inflammatory effects:
- Stabilize collagen aldimine reducible cross-links to reinforce the strength and elasticity of connective tissues such as cartilage, synovium, ligaments, tendons, fascia, bone, blood vessel walls and the dermis of the skin.
- Neutralize ROS and catholic enzymes decreasing their negative impact on cellular and extra-cellular structure and function: this improves membranes receptivity to growth factors such as insulin, somatomedins and thyroxin required for anabolic repair and cell maintenance.
- Decrease excess production of catabolic substances such as collagenase, elastase, hyaluronidase,
TNF, NOS and xanthine oxidase; these substances are released from immune, microbial and damaged cells and
cause damage to connective and epithelial tissue, resulting in joint pain, inflammation, capillary fragility
and other soft-tissue damage.
Prevent the release of inflammation promoters such as histamine, serine proteases, prostaglandins and leukotrienes by non-competitively inhibiting the release of the pro-inflammatory enzymes cyclo-oxygenase, lipoxygenase and phosphodiesterase.
- Improve protective epithelial mucosal surface integrity (digestive, respiratory & genitourinary tract).
Sports related injuries involving 42% of children and young adults are the leading cause of unintentional injury. Injuries sustained during athletic pursuits account for 23 percent of all traumas, second only to motor vehicle injuries, and are the leading cause of death in children. Among adults, the exact figures for these types of injuries are not known.
The decreased stability of the cell membranes and collagen fibers as we age contributes to the higher susceptibility to injury. This loss of flexibility contributes towards the risk of sports related injuries during exercise and other forms of intense activity. Most sports related injuries are caused by either accidents or overuse.
Increase training capacity with Recovery™
- Always warm up and stretch before physical activity. Cold, stiff muscles are more prone to injury. Warm up with jumping jacks, stationary cycling or by running or walking in place for three to five minutes. Then slowly and gently stretch, holding each stretch for 30 seconds. Similarly, always cool down following activity.
- Work up to intensity. Gradually increase the intensity and duration of physical activity. As your fitness level improves, you will be able to work out with more intensity without risking injury. Whenever possible, use the “10 percent” rule. (When upping your activity level, increase it by no more than 10 percent per week. Use the 10 percent rule as your guide for aerobic training as well as for strength training.
- Don't be a "weekend warrior". Trying to fit all your physical activity into two days sets you up for trouble and does not increase your fitness level. Try to get at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity every day. If you can’t fit this in, you can break it up into ten-minute sessions of activity. Remember that “moderate” physical activity includes things like walking the dog, working in the garden, and taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
- Take lessons and invest in good equipment. Even if you have been playing a sport for a long time, lessons or coaching are a worthwhile investment. Proper form and technique reduce the chance of developing an "overuse" injury like tendinitis or stress fractures as well as a pull or strain. Select the proper shoes for your particular sport and use them only for that sport. Replace them as needed.
- Listen to your body. As you grow older, you may find that you are not as flexible as you were, or that physical activities that once seemed pleasurable are now causing you pain. While no one likes to admit that they are growing older, you will be able to prevent injury by toning down your activity to accommodate your body's needs.
- Develop a balanced fitness program. Incorporating cardiovascular exercise, strength training and flexibility will keep you from getting bored and lessen your chance of injury. You will also benefit from the balanced nature of this program.
- Don’t ignore aches and pains. If you feel pain in a body part as a result of activity, rest or reduce your activity for a few days. This will help you avoid more serious problems.
- Take Recovery with Nutricol™ a food-based non-drug supplement, formulated to help support the tissues and improve quality of life.
Breathe with ease with Recovery™
Sustained a sports injury? The following tips will help your body repair itself in as short a time as possible.
- Rest up! It’s tough to rest when you’re an athlete but you will heal better if you do. If possible, keep up your activities through cross-training. Resume regular activity gradually. Start out slowly, remembering to reduce your “normal” duration/intensity of activity. (If you run, go for a shorter distance; if you lift weights, do fewer reps with a lighter weight.) Stop immediately if you feel any pain.
- Eat to Heal! Take note of your nutritional status. It is especially important to eat high quality protein to help repair the tissues. You may want to consider a vitamin-mineral supplement as well, especially if you are unsure if your diet includes what nutrients you may need.
