49ers Star Chris Culliver Out for Season: ACL Recovery Tips

49ers Star Chris Culliver Out for Season: ACL Recovery Tips

Ligaments connect bone to bone and tendons connect muscle to bone. The function of these connectors is important for everyday activities and movements especially in sports and athletics. Athletes are prone to ligament and tendon damage due to the stresses of physical activity, especially repetitive motions like running, jumping and quick change of direction. The good news is that many vitamins, minerals and nutrients from food have important roles in ligament, tendon and tissue repair.

What Foods can Help Strengthen Ligaments?

Colorful Fruits and Vegetables provide a variety of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and antioxidants. The powerful antioxidant vitamin C is very common and is very important for athletes. Vitamin C helps support and strengthens connective tissue according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Vitamin C may also help reduce inflammation associated with injuries like a torn ACL. Fruits particularly high in vitamin C include cantaloupe, oranges, kiwi, cherries, mangoes and papaya. Vegetables also high in Vitamin C include tomatoes, spinach, broccoli and cauliflower. Vitamin C is so important to athletes because it can help your body produce collagen, which strengthens the connective tissue that forms our ligaments and tendons. Getting enough vitamin C also helps prevent further injury to damaged tissue and muscles.

Manganese is another important trace mineral that supports ligament and tissue health. Manganese helps supports strong bones and muscle function. Foods like nuts, hazelnuts, pecans, roasted pumpkin seeds and some shellfish contain the mineral manganese. Other trace minerals known for ligament and muscle strengthening and repair include copper and zinc. Zinc is especially important for maintaining strong joints and tissues.

Fatty Fish are prime sources of omega-3 fatty acids which are healthy fats that in addition to promoting heart health may also reduce inflammation associated with ligaments and connective tissue. Athletes should be consuming fresh ocean fish like salmon, tuna, flounder, trout, herring and sardines to get the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. This important nutrient for the body can help protect nerves and help keep blood flowing and joints moving.

How Do I Fill My Nutrition Gaps?

We should be eating a well balanced diet everyday that includes fresh colorful fruits and vegetables, ocean fish and whole foods to provide our bodies with the vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. How healthy is your diet? I know most people and athletes in particular do not have enough time in their day to sit down and eat a well balanced meal. Most people just end up eating fast food. It’s a busy world and truth be told, most of us struggle to eat properly. Getting the right amounts of vitamins and minerals, the optimal range of nutrients from fruits and vegetables, plus essential fatty acids solely from your diet is extremely difficult yet so beneficial to your overall health especially ACL, ligament, and tendon health.

NUTRILITE vitamins, minerals and supplements provide the best athletes in the world with nutrition most people don’t get from their diet alone. Phytonutrients, a cornerstone of NUTRILITE supplements, are the natural nutrients in plants such as lycopene from tomatoes, resveratrol from grapes, and lutein from spinach leaves. Unlike other vitamins and supplements that are synthetic, NUTRILITE vitamins and supplements have plant based ingredients, so you get nutrients the way nature intended. NUTRILITE is the only global vitamin and mineral brand to grow, harvest, and process plants on their own certified organic farms. NUTRILITE takes the utmost care to use only the best sources of ingredients for every supplement in their line and that’s why successful sports team like AC Milan (most successful soccer team), Detroit Redwings (most successful hockey team) and many other major league baseball, professional football, and Olympic athletes trust, believe in and use their supplements.

“Slight Edge Performance Program” Nutrition to Increase Speed and Athleticism

“Slight Edge Performance Program” Nutrition to Increase Speed and Athleticism.

Don’t you want to give your body what it needs to have more energy to train harder, complete your work outs and run faster?

World-class Olympic sprinter and former world’s fastest man Asafa Powell is the perfect example of an elite athlete who plant based supplementation made a tremendous difference for and the reason for that is he was now provided with the nutrients he needed to operate at maximum efficiency.

World class Olympic sprinter Asafa Powell broke the world record for 100-meter sprint in June 2005, three months after adding NUTRILITE™ DOUBLE X™ to his training regimen.

In 2005, the then 22-year-old Asafa Powell broke the men’s 100-meter world record at a meet in Athens, Greece becoming the world Record holder in the 100-meter sprint — just three months after his brother introduced him to NUTRILITE DOUBLE X. Asafa’s brother Donovan, who also was a world-class sprinter, was introduced to the NUTRILITE brand by his wife’s parents. Appreciating the benefits he received from DOUBLE X, Donovan supplied the multivitamin to his younger brother when he complained of low energy levels during his training early in 2005.

“Taking DOUBLE X was the only change I made to how I had been training,” says Asafa. “After I started taking it, I felt I had more energy to train harder and run faster. I am very careful about what I consume so I appreciate the balanced vitamin and mineral content plus the rich, all-natural plant concentrates in DOUBLE X.”

The world class runner said: “When I run, I don’t think about anyone else. I don’t think about my competition, I just do what I have to do. Nutrilite is a lot like me that way, because they don’t consider the competition in what they do, they just focus on being the best in their field,” he says. “I am confident that DOUBLE X and NUTRILITE will help me power up for the competitions yet to come.”

Why and how did good nutriton Help Asafa Powell improve his training, increase his speed and become the world’s fastest man?

Your skeletal muscles contain two main classifications of muscle fibers: slow twitch and fast twitch muscles. Healthy skeletal muscles play a huge role in your day-to-day functioning — they support your posture, as well as allow for movement and locomotion.

Slow-twitch muscle fibers contract at a relatively slow rate and play an important role in muscle endurance. Fast twitch muscle fibers contract rapidly, and allow for explosive movements. The health of your fast twitch muscle fibers relies partially on the quality of your diet, and consuming specific nutrients helps to nourish these muscle fibers.

VITAMIN E
One nutrient that can benefit your fast twitch muscle fibers is vitamin E, a family of eight antioxidant vitamins. When exercising our muscles produce metabolic activity that include the numerous chemical reactions required for muscle contraction that also generate a number of harmful chemicals called free radicals. Free radicals can damage your muscle fibers, causing tissue damage called oxidative stress that can lead to the destruction of muscle fibers. Vitamin E can help suppress the breakdown of fast twitch muscle fibers in the muscles in response to oxidative stress. Eating foods rich in vitamin E and also taking plant based vitamin E supplements might help to prevent fast twitch muscle fiber breakdown due to free radical exposure. Buy NUTRILITE DOUBLE X® and give your body 500% daily value of vitamin E.

VITAMIN D
Vitamin D also might have a beneficial effect on your fast twitch muscle fibers. Maintaining proper levels of vitamin D helps your body to properly use calcium, a mineral required for proper functioning of your muscles, including fast twitch muscle fibers. Consuming vitamin D can increase the number of fast twitch muscle fibers within your muscle tissue, as well as increase the size of these fibers, according to a 2009 study published in “Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise.” Overall, this translates to an increase in athletic performance. Buy NUTRILITE DOUBLE X® and give your body 100% daily value of vitamin D. Research shows that most people don’t get enough vitamin D in their diet. NUTRILITE Vitamin D3 provides the naturally occurring form of vitamin D your body produces when exposed to sunlight – in an amount that is equal to 20 glasses of milk.

While vitamins D and E might prove beneficial for maintaining healthy fast twitch muscle fibers, maintaining healthy muscles relies on a number of factors. Regular physical activity helps maintain or improve the size and numbers of fast twitch muscle fibers as well as maintains the health of your muscles as a whole. In addition, other nutritional factors, such as protein intake, help to determine the size of your muscles and muscle fibers.

PROTEIN
Your fast twitch muscle fibers — as well as your general muscle health — rely on adequate protein intake. Protein makes up a significant portion of your muscle tissue, and your muscle cells must continually generate new protein to maintain themselves. Eating foods rich in protein increases your intake of amino acids, the building blocks used to make protein within your cells. Fast twitch muscle fibers, in particular, require the amino acid beta-alanine. Beta-alanine is important to the production of carnosine, a compound associated with improved athletic performance and found in high levels in healthy fast twitch muscle fibers. Consume lean meats, eggs, dairy, soy and quinoa as sources of beta-alanine, as well as other amino acids required for healthy fast twitch muscles. Fuel your muscle-building power. The ultimate combination of flavor and performance to help fuel the building and rebuilding of lean muscle mass. 25 grams of protein and a nutritious blend of ingredients and antioxidants help muscles recover and rebuild, while boosting energy stores (or muscle energy) to ensure you are ready for your next workout. FEEL THE ENERGY. KNOW THE POWER.™BUY NUTRILITE® Whey Protein Bar – Cookies and Cream.

OTHER IMPORTANT NUTRIENTS
In addition, minerals like sodium, calcium and potassium help your nerves communicate with fast twitch muscle fibers, allowing for controlled muscle contraction and movement. To best nourish your fast twitch muscles, follow a balanced diet rich in lean proteins, fresh produce, whole grains, legumes and healthy fats. If you’re interested in increasing your fast twitch muscle fiber number or size, talk to a registered dietitian or sports scientist to recommend a diet and exercise program to help reach your goals.

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.

NO BANNED SUBSTANCES!!! HOW TO KNOW YOUR SUPPLEMENTS ARE SAFE???

NSF Certification Addresses Athletes’ Fear of Unknowingly Testing Positive for Banned Substances.

NSF International’s Certified for Sport® program reduces the risk that a dietary or sports supplement contains banned substances. Recognized by Major League Baseball (MLB) and the MLB Players Association, National Football League (NFL), Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES), the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) and the PGA, the NSF Certification program responds to the growing demands by athletes, coaches, team owners and others concerned about finding banned substances in sports nutrition products.

“Slight Edge Performance Program” ACL Recovery: Nutrition for Healing Ligaments

Slight Edge Performance Program”
ACL Recovery: Nutrition for Healing Ligaments

An MRI on Wednesday February 13, 2013 revealed that Kentucky center Nerlens Noel has torn his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The star player was expected to be the NBA’s No. 1 overall selection in the upcoming draft.

New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury to his right knee during pre-season practice in July 2012. Thomas, who signed a four-year $28.4 million deal in March, spent the entire 2011 season on injured reserve. Thomas also tore the ACL in his right knee in 2005 while at USC.

The NBA had four ACL blowouts last season (2011′-2012′) including Chicago’a Derrick Rose, New York’s Iman Shumpert, Minnesota’s Ricky Rubio and Oklahoma City’s Eric Maynor.

Leandro Barbosa a guard for the Boston Celtics fell to a torn ACL on Feb 12, 2013. Lou Williams Guard for the Atlanta Hawks suffered a Torn right knee ligament Jan 18, 2013. Rajon Rondo Point Guard for the Boston Celtics tore his right ACL on Jan 27, 2013.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III had January 9th, 2013 to repair two torn ligaments in his right knee. The two-hour procedure was meant to repair Griffin’s torn lateral cruciate ligament or LCL – a band of fibrous tissue that connects the thigh bone to the outer bone of the lower leg – as well as his anterior cruciate ligament or ACL, which he tore initially in 2009. The new ACL injury occurred in grafted tissue used to treat the 2009 tear.

South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore, who tore an ACL in 2011 and battled all the way back, suffered an injury that looked as ugly as any we’ve ever seen playing against University of Tennessee in October 27th 2013.

An ACL injury is the tearing of the anterior cruciate (KROO-she-ate) ligament, or ACL, inside your knee joint. An ACL injury most commonly occurs during sports that involve sudden stops and changes in direction — such as football, basketball, soccer, tennis and volleyball. Depending on the severity of your ACL injury, treatment may include surgery to replace the torn ligament followed by rehabilitation exercises to help you regain strength and stability.

With so many ACL and ligament injuries happening in sports today there is a great need for information and education about how to help prevent this terrible injury. We also need information and education concerning how to recover quicker and stronger from an ACL or ligament injury.

Torn or pulled ligaments can be frustrating and slow to heal especially for athletes. Good nutrition can help quicken the recovery period and help strengthen injured ligaments.

Ligaments are cable like structures that hold your bones together. Without them you would not be able to move without falling apart. A strained or torn ligament actually involves millions of tiny tears of the collagen and that makes up the ligament. Vitamins can help with ligament repair. According to http://www.dynamicchiropractic.com the peak time for collagen synthesis to occur for healing is five to seven days after the injury. Therefore it is critical to introduce proper foods and vitamins and minerals doing that time. After the seventh day the potential for collagen to repair itself is dramatically reduced.

VITAMIN C
http://www.dynamicchiropractic.com suggests that vitamin C and a handful of B vitamins should be included in the healing process. Vitamin C has been shown in many studies to be a powerful anti-inflammatory nutrient especially when combined with proteolyptic enzymes. The combination is even more effective than many drugs used for the same purpose. The body recognizes drugs as poison and has a difficult time metabolizing them, but Vitamin C is natural and easily absorbed into the system. Vitamin C and iron are both essential amino acids necessary for the synthesis of collagen.

B VITAMINS
B-6 is involved in protein synthesis which is especially crucial after a ligament injury. B-12 is a macronutrient found in RNA and DNA. B-12 is critical because a deficiency can cause a slow down in collagen production. B-2 is another vitamin to consider taking since it, along with copper takes part in strengthening new collagen.
Vitamin B-12 is also important for energy! Click HERE and read about XS ENERGY!

MULTIVITAMIN
It’s a great idea to take a multivitamin as a daily routine, but the practice becomes even more critical when healing from a sprained or torn ligament. Generally the body begins healing three days post injury. It is at this point the body will be demanding nutrients, vitamins and minerals to repair the damage done to this remarkable biological machine known as the human body. A daily multivitamin provides the raw material for recovering from ligament damage with a broad range of nutrients, each contributing to the healing process to some extent.

“Slight Edge Performance Program” Injury Prevention and Athletic Performance

Today, more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.” ~Mike Adams

Personal achievements are realized when athletes combine disciplined training, proper nutrition and daily supplements. Energy, Strength, Hydration, Recovery and Daily nutrition needs are important for athletes to get the most out of their training and to help them reach their personal goals.
In 2005 Jamaican Olympic Sprinter Asafa Powell Became the World’s Fastest man! Check out his Story HERE

Let’s look at a an example. Two high school Football All-Americans are training and preparing for their opportunity to compete and excel at the college level. Both wake up early in the morning before school and get a 45 min workout in. Then after school they do weight training with their team. Also 2 days a week they both have a personal strength and conditioning coach that teaches them speed, agility, power, flexibility and strength. Here’s where the big difference is…. PLAYER 1 takes a NSF Certified for Sport, Plant-Based multi vitamin and PLAYER 2 does not. The reason why PLAYER 1 takes a daily multivitamin is because he learned from his coach that there is a higher energy requirement for Athletes and that we often don’t consume enough of the protective phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals that help to Strengthen our physical performance, prevent sickness,injury and Quicken and Strengthen our Recovery Process.

Is your diet giving you all the vitamins and minerals you need for optimal health?
Check out what NFL Super Bowl MVP QB Kurt Warner uses to FUEL HERE

Player 1 has an Advantage and a “Slight Edge” over Player 2. Not only is Player 1 putting the Physical Effort in and eating a good diet he is also covering all nutritional gaps and giving his body the fuel it needs to perform at maximum level.
Check out what Olympic Long Distance Runner Kara Goucher says about the role Good Nutrition Plays in her Life HERE

So how much is good health worth to you and your family?

Here are some Key Benefits Player 2 could be missing because he is not using a daily multivitamin:
Healthy eyes. Vitamin A and lutein esters.
Healthy skin. Vitamin A, niacin, and grape extract.
Healthy bone development and healthy teeth. Vitamin A, vitamin D, calcium, and magnesium.

How healthy is your diet?

When the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans were released in 2005, the federal recommendations for fruits and vegetables increased from 5-9 servings to 5-13 servings per day for adults. Unfortunately, despite known health benefits of higher intakes of fruits and vegetables, very few Americans are consuming these recommended intake levels. Given that fruit and vegetable intakes are suboptimal for most people, it is reasonable to conclude that intake of the phytonutrients typically provided in these foods is less than optimal, too. Essentially, there is a “phytonutrient gap” among the majority of Americans.

Are you eating the recommended 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day?

Today You’ll Learn and Understand why the Nutrients from Plants can help you Prevent Injury and Sickness and Help Increase Your Athletic and Physical Performance.

How Can I Increase my Physical Energy and what Nutrients help with Energy Production? ENERGY

Thiamin also known as Vitamin (B1) is a water-soluble vitamin of the B complex. Water-soluble means it can dissolve in water. We need vitamin B1 so that our body can use carbohydrates as energy – it is essential for glucose metabolism. Vitamin B1 also plays a key role in nerve, muscle and heart function. Thiamine is a co-enzyme – it helps some enzymes work properly. Vitamin B1 is found in high concentrations in the outer layers and germ of cereals, as well as in yeast, beef, pork, nuts, wholegrains, and pulses. ENERGY

What other Nutrients can help me with Energy?

Riboflavin also known as Vitamin (B2) is for Energy Production and and Healthy Nerve Function. It plays a vital role in maintaining the body’s energy supply. Vitamin B2 is crucial for breaking down food components, absorbing other nutrients, and maintaining tissue. Riboflavin helps convert carbohydrates into ATP (adenosine triphosphate). The human body produces ATP from food, ATP produces energy as the body requires it. The compound ATP is vital for storing energy in muscles. Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) is also important for Healthy eyes, nerves, muscles and skin and Preventing the development of cataracts.

Food Sources for Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) include:Asparagus, Artichokes, Spinach, Sweet potatoes, Kale, Peas, Nuts, Energy Drinks (XS Energy), Whole-grain breads, Broccoli and more.ENERGY

Vitamins and minerals do not in themselves provide energy, but macronutrients depend on them to regulate the release of energy from food.

“Slight Edge Performance Program” Injury Prevention and Sports Performance Tips

Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins. ~Jim Rohn

Today We are going to Learn about the Health Benefits of VITAMIN A, the MINERAL MOLYBDENUM and the PHYTONUTRIENT RESVERATROL.

VITAMIN A is one of the required VITAMIN antioxidants your body needs on a daily basis to function properly. Vitamin A works with numerous natural herbs to fight off disease and keep your immune system strong. The Vitamin A benefits help in numerous bodily functions from keeping your skin healthy to fighting off infection & disease (including cancer). Vitamin A helps maintain healthy eyes, skin, teeth, and bones. It’s also essential for cell division, meaning renewal and it plays a key role in keeping your immune system strong.

Molybdenum is an essential mineral required for many signficant chemical processes in the body. The element is available from many foods, including beans, beef liver, cereal grains, dark green leafy vegetables, legumes and peas. Molybdenum, along with copper, controls the movement and release of iron in the body. The role of iron utilization is important because iron provides oxygen to the body’s organ systems, which is essential for life. Without molybdenum, all body functions would be impaired because they would not receive the oxygen necessary for metabolism. This Phytonutrient is key in Protecting your cells from free radical damage, Inhibiting the spread of cancer, especially prostate cancer, Lowering your blood pressure, Keeping your heart healthy and improving elasticity in your blood vessels, Normalizing your anti-inflammatory response and Helping to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Because resveratrol appears to be so effective at warding off many diseases associated with aging, it is often referred to a “fountain of youth” that can extend lifespan.

Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant and Phytonutrient.Derived from various types of berries especially grapes. Resveratrol has been shown to have positive cancer and weight loss benefits. Indeed, the health benefits of resveratrol are proving to be numerous and substantial. Resveratrol helps to protect your health, and that is by preventing your body from sphingosine kinase and phospholipase D which are two molecules known to trigger inflammation. This Phytonutrient is key in Protecting your cells from free radical damage, Inhibiting the spread of cancer, especially prostate cancer, Lowering your blood pressure, Keeping your heart healthy and improving elasticity in your blood vessels, Normalizing your anti-inflammatory response and Helping to prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
