Sports recovery is just as an important part of any exercise or workout. Having a good recovery routine can affect fitness and sports performance, allowing you to train more effectively. Sports recovery after a workout is critical for muscle repair and strength building. Your muscles need 24 to 48 hours of recovery to repair and rebuild tissue. While replacing fluids, eating protein and resting can help, including a whole-food supplement can aid in replenishing essential nutrients for recovery.
Some nutrients include:
Magnesium acts as a helper molecule for more than 600 chemical reactions in the body including energy creation and muscle movement. It also helps to move blood sugar into your muscles and remove lactate, which builds up during exercise and causes fatigue. We tend to use up more magnesium when we exercise, thus it’s important to replenish this.
Tart Cherries are full of antioxidants, especially the compounds called anthocyanins. It has been said that cherries are linked to benefits like reduced oxidative stress, inflammation and muscle soreness. Tart cherry may also reduce muscle breakdown and speed up recovery times.
Turmeric contains the compound curcumin which is a strong antioxidant and also has anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin can help in reducing inflammation, which occurs during exercise as your muscles experience micro-tears and strain during workouts. It can also reduce the number of free radicals which are produced during exercise and help muscle soreness and damage recover faster.
