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” Health Education: Liver Health

Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.” ~John F. Kennedy

“If you want to make big changes in your life start by making small ones. They can really matter and last!”

The Mayo Clinic Staff defines your liver as an organ about the size of a football that sits just under your rib cage on the right side of your abdomen. Without your liver, you couldn’t digest food and absorb nutrients, get rid of toxic substances from your body or stay alive.
Healthful Facts: fatty foods, alcohol and tobacco can impact your liver’s ability to function efficiently. Our modern lifestyle which includes high stress levels, poor diets, excessive alcohol, medication, poor water quality, processed fast food, exposure to hazardous pollutants like pesticides and herbicides put a lot of stress on our liver which can cause liver problems.

Our liver is the second largest organ in the body. It metabolizes carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It attracts nutrients such as iron vitamin A, B12, D from the bloodstream and stores them for future use. The liver also regulates blood clotting and detoxifies the blood by filtering toxins such as drugs, hormones, microbes and alcohol.

Even if you live a healthy lifestyle and practice good eating habits your liver still undergoes attacks everyday due to air pollution in the environment we live in. The Environmental Protection Agency of the US estimates almost 6 Trillion pounds of chemicals are released into the environment each year. Some of these make their way into your body via the air you breathe, food you eat and water you drink.

As your body’s primary organ for detoxification the liver processes everything you eat, drink or inhale. The liver is the only internal organ that can regenerate itself after damage. If your liver is unhealthy you may suffer from symptoms of liver problems like: extreme tiredness, general poor health, weight loss, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, fever, abdominal pain, itchy skin, enlarged or tender liver. A poor liver is also more susceptible to hepatitis A, B, C virus infection and probability of liver cancer increases.

SOLUTIONS FOR BETTER LIVER HEALTH
In order to avoid and prevent these problems you need to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Creating a good and healthy lifestyle is in your hands and it’s something you can cultivate. Some small but powerful changes you can make are eating lots of fruits and vegetables, beans, whole wheat cereals and less fat. Also drinking plenty of clean water and avoiding or limiting alcohol exposure. Also Incorporate antioxidants such as vitamin A, C, E into your daily diet. Apart from adopting these daily habits there are also herbs you can take to protect your liver.

One herbal remedy that has been known in Europe and other Mediterranean countries since ancient times is Milk Thistle. Milk Thistle is a recognized, natural supplement that can prevent liver damage. It is effective in managing chronic liver disease and protecting the liver from toxic, chemicals, alcohol, drugs and chemotherapy. Milk Thistle has been used in Europe to treat liver problems for thousands of years. In modern-day research Milk Thistle has been shown to protect the liver from damage. The detrimental effects of environmental toxins, alcohol, drugs may be countered with this valuable herb. This is largely due to the active chemical components in the herb that are collectively called Silymarin. Silymarin has the ability to stimulate the growth of new liver cells to replace old and damaged cells. It can also prevent free radical damage by acting as an antioxidant. In fact Silymarin is at least 10 times more potent in antioxidant activity than vitamin E.

Milk Thistle nutritionally supports the liver’s ability to maintain normal liver function. It has shown positive effects in treating every known liver disease including Cirrhosis (scarring of the liver), Necroses and liver damage from drug and alcohol abuse. Apart from preventing liver damage Milk Thistle can also stimulate the production of new liver cells to replace old damage ones. It also blocks the absorption of toxins into the cells, stimulates the secretion of bile (a substance that helps carry away waste) and is needed for the breakdown and absorption of dietary fats.

It’s essential that the Milk Thistle extract you choose for your liver’s health provides you with a minimum amount of Silymarin in each dose. Dandelion has been used for centuries to treat liver conditions such as hepatitis and to encourage normal digestion. It also has a high concentration of vitamin A and Choline (a B-Vitamin that stimulates the liver.) Tumeric is another natural extract which supports liver and gallbladder functions by stimulating the flow of bile. It is also high in vitamin C a very important antioxidant. These natural ingredients respond very effectively to our bodies, providing the supplement that supports and enhances our daily health. I encourage you to make the smart choice with NUTRILITE® Milk Thistle and Dandelion , a very convenient mix of natural herbs that support our liver. If you want to make big changes in your life start by making small ones. They can really matter and last.

Is your liver overworked? Fatty foods, alcohol and tobacco can all stress your liver and make its job much harder. So can common painkillers. Why not lighten its load before it lets you know it’s had enough? Product Advantage
The smart choice is NUTRILITE Milk Thistle and Dandelion, with more ingredients in one convenient tablet to support normal liver function.

Each tablet provides:
156 mg milk thistle extract with 76 mg silybin extract
125 mg dandelion root extract
75 mg turmeric extract
Citrus Bioflavonoid and Acerola Concentrates

“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?

“Slight Edge Performance Program” injury Prevention and Sports Performance Tip

Time And health are two precious assets that we don’t recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.” ~Denis Waitley

Today We Learn about the BENEFITS of the Vitamin E, the Mineral Magnesium and the Phytonutrient Chlorophyll.

Athletes need to get adequate amounts of vitamin E. Nutritional elements like vitamin E are often most found in fresh fruits and vegetables. Foods Rich in Vitamin E include: Mustard Greens, Swiss Chard, Spinach, Kale, Collard Greens, Nuts Tropical Fruits, Red Peppers, Broccoli, Oils and Wheats. The body’s own metabolism creates free radicals during excessive aerobic exercise. Vitamin E reserves make sure these free radicals don’t get out of hand and cause trouble.The majority of vitamin E’s benefits stem from its antioxidant qualities. That means it combines with oxygen and destroys free radicals. It protects polyunsaturated fats and other oxygen-sensitive compounds such as vitamin A from being destroyed by damaging oxidation reactions. Vitamin E’s antioxidant properties are also important to cell membranes. For example, vitamin E protects lung cells that are in constant contact with oxygen and white blood cells that help fight disease. As an antioxidant with a powerful punch, vitamin E helps prevent cancer, heart disease, strokes, cataracts, and possibly some of the signs of aging.
Vitamin E protects artery walls and keeps the “bad” low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol from being oxidized. Oxidation of LDL cholesterol marks the beginning of clogged arteries. Vitamin E also keeps the blood thin by preventing blood platelets from clumping together. High levels of vitamin E in the body decrease the risk of a non-fatal heart attack or stroke in most people. A dynamic cancer fighter, vitamin E protects cells and DNA from damage that can turn cancerous. It reduces the growth of tumors while enhancing immune function and preventing precancerous substances from being turned into carcinogens. Vitamin E can be beneficial to people with diabetes. It enhances the action of insulin and improves blood glucose metabolism by reducing oxidative stress. The health benefits of vitamin E come from its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants remove free radicals — the unstable compounds that damage the cell structure. 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.

Leading health authorities tell us we need to eat from 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. But who really does eat this much? Click HERE to Learn about NUTRILITE Concentrated Fruits & Vegetables can help. It captures crucial phytonutrients from natural fruits, vegetables, and plants – enough to equal the amount found in 10+ servings – in just 2 easy-to-swallow tablets.

Magnesium is a mineral that’s crucial to the body’s function. Foods Rich in Magnesium Include: Peanut butter, rice, Wheat, oat Bran, Squash, dried herbs, almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds and cocoa powder. A deficiency in magnesium can lead to muscle spasms, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety disorders, migraines, osteoporosis, and cerebral infarction. Major Benefits include stronger bones and Muscle Function. Magnesium is also a major cofactor in Energy Metabolism and aids in regulating a Healthy Heartbeat. Magnesium helps keep blood pressure normal, bones strong, and the heart rhythm steady. Experts say that many people in the U.S. aren’t eating enough foods with magnesium. This mild magnesium deficiency could put them at risk for a number of diseases. According to a 1999-2000 NHANES study (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey), 68% of Americans consumed less than the U.S. recommended daily allowance for magnesium. Studies showed that 45% consumed less than 75% of the recommended amount, and 19% consumed less than 50%. Adults who consumed less than the recommended amount of magnesium were about 1.5 times more likely to have elevated inflammation markers than adults who consumed the recommended amount. Magnesium is an essential mineral for staying healthy and is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Multiple health benefits of magnesium include transmission of nerve impulses, body temperature regulation, detoxification, energy production, and the formation of healthy bones and teeth. Health specialists have always emphasized the importance of including adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals in our daily diet. Zinc, calcium, and magnesium are three of the most important minerals essential for good health. Magnesium aids in the absorption of calcium by the body, while zinc actively supports the body’s immune system.

Chlorophyll is a major Phytonutrient found in mostly green foods. benefits in our body heals, cleanses, and destroys many harmful pathogenic bacteria, fungus, and cancer cells. Foods Rich in Chlorophyll are Broccoli, Alfalfa, Tomato, Apples, Carrot, Spinach, Bananas, Garlic and Green Tea Leaves. Chlorophyll is as important as sunlight, without it life would not be possible. Hemoglobin is the iron-containing substance that provides red blood cells their red pigment and transports oxygen to the body tissues. In fact, we may not realize that our blood is composed of 75% of hemoglobin. As we digest green food, the magnesium helps in rebuilding and replenishing the red blood cells which is responsible for boosting our energy. Refined, low fiber and and animal fats contribute to major diseases start in the colon. Gastrointestinal problems can be best treated by improving the digestion and assimilation. Among those natural nutrients that heal the intestinal track, green vegetables high in chlorophyll content aid in loosening and cleansing the colon. This is to clarify that chlorophyll is not considered as essential nutrient. Nevertheless, people are lacking of green foods in their daily diet are lacking of enough chlorophyll, and therefore advised to add chlorophyll in their diet. We get our food from plants and the chlorophyll benefits within the plant. Even if you eat animals, most of the animals some people eat get their food from plants. But were to plants get their food?
The 2 key components plants get their food from are Healthy Soil and Sunlight.

Phytonutrients literally means plant (phyto) substance needed for good health (nutrients). Phytonutrients are the natural nutrients found in plants, such as lycopene from tomatoes, resveratrol from grapes, and Lutein from spinach leaves. We often don’t consume enough of these protective phytonutrients through diet alone, which is why it’s important to take supplements, such as DoubleX to fill in the gaps!

“Slight Edge Performance Program” Vitamin D Health Benefits

Mainstream medicine would be way different if they focused on prevention even half as much as they focused on intervention…” ~Anonymous

Vitamin D deficiency is common in athletes. Correcting the deficiency by taking a Vitamin D supplement can produce significant musculoskeletal sports health benefits. Here are Vitamin D Effects on sports health & athletic performance. Vitamin D affects:
muscle protein synthesis, muscle strength, muscle size, reaction time, balance, coordination, endurance
inflammation; and immunity. Vitamin D deficiency produces: muscle fiber atrophy, slow peak muscle contraction, prolonged time to muscle relaxation, and increased risk of chronic musculoskeletal pain.
Type II, fast-twitch muscles fibers, extremely important in many of the burst activities necessary for peak athletic performance and fall avoidance, are particularly sensitive to the effects of Vitamin D deficiency. There is no known threshold for optimal sports health benefits of vitamin D, but studies show many elite athletes are vitamin D deficient, with incidences of vitamin D deficiency in:
basketball players (up to 94%)
gymnasts (83%)
football players (81%)
Because seasonal variations are expected (athletes have higher levels in the summer, when they are getting vitamin D from exposure to the sun), so current recommendations are for testing athletes in early autumn.

Vitamin D is found in many food sources, such as fish, eggs, fortified milk, and cod liver oil. The sun also contributes significantly to the daily production of vitamin D. The major biologic function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones. It is used, alone or in combination with calcium, to increase bone mineral density and decrease fractures. Recently, research also suggests that vitamin D may provide protection from osteoporosis, hypertension (high blood pressure), cancer, and several autoimmune diseases. It helps the intestine absorb nutrients, including calcium and phosphorus. This ensures strong bones and a strong immune system. Vitamin D provides calcium balance in the body that prevents osteoporosis or arthritis. Vitamin D regulates blood pressure, reduces stress and tension, relieves body aches and pains by reducing muscle spasms, reduces respiratory infections, helps in differentiation of the cells, aids in insulin secretion, helps fight depression, improves overall skin health by reducing wrinkles, makes skin soft, strong, and smooth, and improves cardiovascular strength by providing a protective lining for the blood vessels.

“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. 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.
