Play hardand chances are you’re going to get hurt. but you wouldn’t have it any other way.
Because putting yourself on the line is just who you are, on the job or in the gym. And like any professional athlete, you’ve got a lot riding on getting healthy and back in the game as soon as possible.
You twist your ankle, and you can’t walk for a month, but when the pros get injured, they jump right back in the game. What gives? Why can’t you bounce back as fast as they do? Well, you can. And, perhaps surprisingly—or not—a big part of healing comes down to nutrition. Your body may heal itself with time, but chances are, if you don’t take your nutrition seriously, you won’t heal optimally and you may end up with a chronic condition that impairs your performance for years to come.
In the sports rehabilitation field, research has shown that nutrition significantly increases the ability of the body to heal itself. Targeted vitamins, minerals and enzymes play critical biochemical roles in promoting cellular rejuvenation and healing. From joint trauma (that twisted ankle of yours) to broken bones, inflammation, surgical wounds and even contusions and bruises, utilizing the appropriate nutritional compounds can reduce downtime and optimize the healing process.
It’s hard to sit on the sidelines. But while you’re there, get the nutritional support you need to heal and get back in the game.
