“Slight Edge Performance Program”: Alarming Vitamin D Deficiencies in NFL Football Players

According to a study presented at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine 2011 Annual Meeting, vitamin D deficiency might be unusually high among American football players, with black players and players who have suffered muscle injuries showing significantly lower vitamin D levels.

According to the study, researchers tested the vitamin D levels of 89 professional football players from the New York Giants National Football League (NFL) team in the spring of 2010 and found that 27 players (30.3%) had deficient vitamin D levels (below 20 ng/mL). As many as 45 players (50.6%) had levels consistent with vitamin D insufficiency (between 20 and 31.9 ng/mL). Only 17 players (19.1%) had values within normal limits (above 32 ng/mL).

Lead author Michael K. Shindle, MD, an orthopaedic surgeon from Summit Medical Group, in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey said, “We found that an alarming percentage of players — 80.9% — had abnormal vitamin D levels of less than 32 ng/mL.”

Dr. Michael K. Shindle added that all players sustaining injuries that caused them to miss at least 1 practice or game had vitamin D levels that were significantly lower than players without muscle injury.

The study done with the NFL’s New York Giants consisted of 31 white players and 58 black players. Blacks tend to have lower vitamin D levels than whites in the general population. “Up to 93% of African American players had abnormal vitamin D levels, compared with 31% of white players,” Dr. Shindle said.

What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin required by the body for the proper absorption of calcium, bone development, control of cell growth, neuromuscular functioning, proper immune functioning, and alleviation of inflammation.

Why is Vitamin D important for good health and athletic performance?
Dr. Shindle says, “It’s also been shown that vitamin D can increase the number of type II, or fast twitch, muscle fibers.” This is very important for athletes who want to get faster and increase their speed.

According to a 2009 study published in “Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise,” 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. Overall, this translates to an increase in athletic performance.

Inadequate levels of vitamin D can lead to a weakened immune system, increased cancer risk, poor hair growth, and osteomalacia, a condition of weakened muscles and bones.

Other Benefits of vitamin D?
•It is crucial for the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorous which help support and maintain healthy bones.
•It is an immune system regulator.
•It may be an important way to arm the immune system against disorders like the common cold.

What is the best way to get vitamin D?
Vitamin D for humans is obtained from sun exposure, food and supplements. Sunlight promotes sufficient vitamin D synthesis in the skin. Foods that contain vitamin D include fish oils, fatty fish, beef liver, cheese, egg yolks, and certain mushrooms.

Personally I have been taking a plant based food supplement called NUTRILITE® DOUBLE X® since my college football days at Virginia State University. I noticed how I had more energy to train harder and workout longer. I also found that my body was recovering faster from workouts and competition. My friend Amanda is a former college soccer player and in 2008 she recommended that I use it to fill all my nutrition gaps. She said Double X was the best and in my personal opinion she was telling the truth! NUTRILITE® is the world’s leading brand of vitamin, mineral, and dietary supplements. It’s formulated by NUTRILITE, the only global vitamin and mineral brand to grow, harvest, and process plants on their own certified organic farms.**

When you compare NUTRILITE DOUBLE X® to Centrum® and GNC Solotron®, there’s really no comparison! Double X contains more of almost every vitamin and mineral, plus many more plant concentrates, which provide superb antioxidant protection.

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.

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.

Asafa Powell broke the world record for the 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.”

“Slight Edge Performance Program”: Personal Development Tip (Athlete’s Higher Standard)

“Slight Edge Performance Program”: Personal Development Tip (Athlete’s Higher Standard). Success is Nothing but a Few Simple Disciplines Practiced Everyday.

You have the Personal Responsibility for making your Dreams and Goals Reality. Time is More Valuable than Money because you can always get more money but you can’t get more time.

There are 3 things Athletes should do to achieve their full potential and reach success both on and off the field; 1. TRANSFORM MINDSET, 2. EXPAND SKILL SETS and 3. DEVELOP STRATEGIC RELATIONSHIPS. Let’s take a look at how we can apply these ideas.

1. TRANSFORM MINDSET. Athletes must learn to “Think Different” about making money. Athletes could benefit greatly from Personal Development, Self-Education and Financial Education. Over 60% of NFL players are broke after finishing their careers. Over 70% of NBA Players file Bankrupt after their playing days are up. Athletes need to be educated about how money works and how they can get their money working for them. With our Program we are Empowering athletes to know the difference between Profit vs Wages, Business Owner vs Employee and Passive Income vs Active Income. We are teaching our students to be Entrepreneurs and Producers vs only Consumers.

2. EXPAND SKILL SET: Athletes must throw away the dependent Employee mindset and adapt a more independent Entrepreneurial mindset. “People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity” ~ Andrew Carnegie. The Domestic Economy that America once was in over and now we live in an Entrepreneur Economy. Athletes must develop Communication Skills, Social Media Marketing skills, learn how to Sell and Develop customers and Develop Goal Setting skills.

3. STRATEGIC RELATIONSHIPS: Athletes must learn to develop Achievement Driven relationships that assets to them and not liabilities. In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. Everything in the world we want to do or get done, we must do with and through people. Having a Mentor is #1 in this category.

“There are only two options regarding commitment; you’re either in or you’re out. There’s no such thing as life in-between.”- Pat Riley

Dark Leafy greens, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Oranges, Papayas, and Brussels Sprouts are foods that are great sources of VITAMIN C.

PHYTONUTRIENTS are the natural NUTRIENTS found in Plants. We often don’t consume enough of these protective PHYTONUTRIENTS through diet alone, which is why it’s important to take Supplements. 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.How Much is Good Health Worth to You?

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.

Why do I need a supplement?
The American Medical Association recommends that all adults take one multivitamin daily.

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.

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 Program”(Enhance Performance with NSF Certified for Sport Supplement Program)

Urgent! “Slight Edge Performance Program” Sport Nutrition Tip of the Day! Breaking Records in High School, Earning a College Football Scholarship and having the opportunity to compete for a job playing in the NFL were all DREAMS that I realized and Achieved! Was it easy? NO! Was it worth it? YES! Growing up I was always very competitive in SPORTS and always looking for an ADVANTAGE to make myself BETTER. I desired to be a Big Time Performer, a Playmaker, someone who could help my TEAM Win! I learned that athletes have a much higher energy requirement than non-athletes and to strengthen my performance I needed to “Eat to Fuel!” I learned about NSF Certified for Sport, Plant based supplements like NUTRILITE DOUBLE X!

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.
