What Athletes Should Learn from Marcus Lattimore’s Injury. (PART 1)

Rehabilitation is not new to Marcus Lattimore and neither is hard work. For what appeared to be an injury that would take a young career there is a lot of promise ahead for the young gamecocks running back. Lattimore returned this year from a knee injury that he sustained last season. He was building a very strong campaign for the gamecocks as the leading ball carrier and pass catching threat for the backfield. Then in the second quarter of South Carolina’s game against Tennessee on Saturday, October 27, 2012 Lattimore fell to a devastating knee injury. What appeared to be a career ending dislocated knee could be an injury Lattimore returns from. Marcus Lattimore suffered a significant impact to the front of his right knee. The ensuing hyper extension of the knee resulted in injury to several ligaments. There were no fractures or additional injuries according to the team physician Dr. Jeffrey Guy. Lattimore’s surgically repaired left knee was on injured going to play.

So the question is what can at least learn from Lattimore’s experience? We know in football, basketball and all sports there is risk for injury. It’s always sad to see any of athlete let alone a big time performer like Lattimore fall to injury. Here some MAJOR important points I believe all athletes can learn from this young athlete’s experience.

1. Athletes Should should possess knowledge to prevent and heal injuries through proper diet and Supplement Program.
Getting injured is one of the most difficult and frustrating things in an athlete’s life. The best way to stop injuries is to of course, prevent them. However in Some cases like Lattimore’s devastating knee injury it’s impossible to prevent but there are proactive measures athletes can take while they are healthy that can help strengthen and quicken their recovery and healing process. An athlete’s diet makes a HUGE difference in the recovery and healing process. Feeding and fueling the body will help to strengthen and maintain the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bone in the best and strongest condition possible. Giving your body the nutrition it needs plays a direct role in enhancing performance, preventing injury/sickness, strengthening and speeding up your recovery process. In contrast, a diet high in refined sugars, starches, and poor quality protein will increase inflammation and lead to a higher likelihood of injury.

So What’s the optimal diet for an athlete or high performer? Most importantly athletes should be sure they are getting high quality, adequate amounts of protein. Healthy abundant protein helps to make and repair muscle, strengthen bones and tendons, and allow for proper function of cells.

The best protein sources are grass fed meats which are full of muscle building conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), anti-inflammatory omega 3 fats, and muscle building zinc and iron. Other good sources of protein are wild caught fatty fish, free range poultry, and organic eggs. – Omega 3 Fats – provide plenty of fuel for energy and anti-inflammatory properties to heal and protect the damage that hard training wreaks on the body.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid(CLA) helps to provide the fuel the body needs to power through a demanding practice. Antioxidants are extremely important to the athlete.

Exercise, especially intense exercise produces large amounts of free radicals which lead to damage and breakdown of tissue within the body. Eating a large variety of brightly colored fresh, organic fruit and vegetables will go a long way to help supply the body with large amounts of antioxidants. Go raw! Raw fruits and vegetables are not only powerhouses of vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals; they also contain massive amounts of enzymes. Enzymes are proven healers of damaged tissue.

The best diet is at least fifty percent raw to prevent and heal injuries. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant and will play a role in the blocking of the damage due to free radicals in the body. Because this vitamin is so important for the repair of the connective and cartilage tissue, it is helpful to add extra to your diet when injured.

Athletes should eat foods that are high in vitamin C such as red peppers, papaya, cantaloupe, kale, oranges and broccoli. Vitamin C is a key ingredient to rebuilding collagen, connective tissue and repairing damage in the body. It is also important to promote the healthy maintenance of cartilage and bones as well as teeth.

Vitamin A is also important because of its rebuilding properties. Its main function in the body is to make new white blood cells to help fight off infection. A higher intake of vitamin A will also help repair any microtears that occurred in the body after a hard workout so it is definitely a valuable tool for any runner, cyclist or weight lifter.

Why do I need a supplement?
The American Medical Association recommends that all adults take one multivitamin daily. This is true even if you already eat a diet rich in fresh, whole, natural foods, because the foods you consume often don’t supply all the vitamins and minerals you need, at the recommended levels. If you’re going to supplement, why not start with the world’s best multi? NUTRILITE® DOUBLE X® Vitamin/Mineral/Phytonutrient.

What’s a phytonutrient and why are there so many in NUTRILITE DOUBLE X Vitamin/Mineral/Phytonutrient?
Phytonutrients are naturally occurring chemicals in plants that help fight off insects, resist disease, promote healthy growth, and enhance survival. Nutrilite has always included these plant nutrients in its supplement formulas because of their health benefits to humans. The phytonutrients found in the 20 plant concentrates in DOUBLE X supplement offer you both broad and targeted antioxidant protection.

Why are antioxidants important?
Antioxidants are your natural defenses against free radicals. Free radicals oxidize compounds in your cells starting a chain reaction of instability and damage. The antioxidants in NUTRILITE DOUBLE X Vitamin/Mineral/Phytonutrient help neutralize free radicals in five categories and offer protection – right down to your cells!

Why should I choose NUTRILITE DOUBLE X Vitamin/Mineral/Phytonutrient over any other multivitamin/multimineral?
Because it’s the best one made by the company that marketed the very first multivitamin/multimineral in North America. NUTRILITE is the world’s leading brand of vitamin, mineral, and dietary supplements (based on 2009 sales). You get the reassurance of Nutrilite’s cutting-edge research; plant concentrates from natural sources, grown to the highest standards; and the nutritional insurance offered by a great multi.

“Slight Edge Performance” Sport Nutrition Tip(VITAMIN E, Antioxidants)

Urgent! “Slight Edge Performance” Sport Nutrition Tip of The Day! Almonds,Asparagus,Hazel nuts, Mangoes and Sweet Potato are all great sources of VITAMIN E! Vitamin E is a fat soluble antioxidant that protects cell membranes and lipid structures from oxidative damage. Athletes need to understand that their body requires a wide variety of antioxidants to deal with the many different types of free radicals that are released during energy production. Athletes need to ensure that they have an adequate intake of a wide variety of effective antioxidants to compromise free radical production. The question that arises is how effectively can athletes defend against the increased free radicals resulting from exercise? Do athletes need to take extra antioxidants? The words antioxidant, free radicals and oxidative damage are commonly thrown around by the media. However, few individuals actually understand what they mean. Free radicals are produced when break down fat, protein or carbohydrates for energy. The health benefits of vitamin E come from its antioxidant properties. Immunity levels improve when vitamin E is consumed. Another important benefit of vitamin E is that it reduces cholesterol and the risk of developing cancer. Research indicated that supplements containing vitamin E and C, may be effective at preventing oxidative damage in those participating in extreme endurance events. Vitamin E thins the blood which is another significant health benefit. In other words, it prevents the blood platelets from clumping. High levels of vitamin E reduce the risk of sunstroke and coronary artery disorder or heart disease. Another widely known health benefit of vitamin E is in skin care and hair care. Owing to its antioxidant properties, vitamin E promotes the circulation of blood to the scalp. Vitamin E helps alleviate fatigue and strengthen capillary walls while nourishing the cells.

“Slight Edge Performance” Sport Nutrition Tip (BETA-CAROTENE)

Urgent! “Slight Edge Performance” Sport Nutrition Tip of the Day! When it comes to your Health Do Not just play the GAME! Learn and Understand how the GAME is played! Today you will Learn about the benefits of BETA-CAROTENE pertaining to your Health and Performance. Almost all the green-yellow-orange vegetables and fruits are rich sources of beta carotene which is a VERY important PHYTONUTRIENT found in PLANTS. People whose diets are rich in beta carotene have lower risk of heart disease. Beta carotene helps activate your thymus gland, one of your most important sources of immune protection. Being an important flavonoid compound, beta carotene has powerful antioxidant functions, helps the body scavenge free radicals, thereby limiting the damage to cell membranes, DNA and protein structures in the cell. Research studies suggest that dietary intake of foods high in β-carotene has positive association with decreased risk of cardio-vascular disease as well as oral cavity, and lung cancers. Beta Carotene, along with other carotenoids, is a molecule that the body easily changes into Vitamin A. Vitamin A is necessary for a large number of metabolic functions similar to other vitamins. When converted to vitamin A in the intestines it has all the functions of vitamin A such as visual cycle, reproduction (sperm production), maintenance of epithelial functions, growth and development. Of the 600 known carotenoids, beta-carotene is the most studied and the most physiologically and nutritionally important member of the carotene family. It also effective in skin disorders, enhances immunity, protects against toxins and cancer formations, colds, flu, and infections. It is an antioxidant and protector of the cells while slowing the aging process. People whose diets are rich in beta carotene have lower risk of heart disease. Beta carotene works with vitamin E to reduce the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol, which lowers the risk of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. Studies show that people who eat a diet rich in carotenoids, had a much lower risk of breast, colon cancer and lung cancer. One way that carotenoids fight cancer is through their antioxidant capacity. Another way that they help is to keep your cells in proper communication, an effective preventive measure against the growth of cancer cells.
