Essential Fatty Acids are important for every cell membrane to function at its best and if muscles and joints are to recover quickly after training then the cells that make up the muscles and joint tissues need to be able to work at their best.
Anyone who participates in sport, physical activity and/or exercise knows how frustrating suffering from an injury can be. While rest and recovery is essential, the right nutritional plan can also assist with the healing process.
Immediately after exercise and particularly an injury the healing process begins. First of all 'clean-up' cells are sent to the injured area to remove damaged tissue. This is followed by an inflammatory response that includes laying down collagen fibres and rebuilding healthy connective tissue. Nutritional support can help to speed up this process.
Omega 3 fatty acids help to produce chemical mediators which regulate inflammation, blood clotting, vascular dilation and immune suppression, which all help with recovery.
In a study undertaken in Denmark, athletes who were given Essential Fatty Acids by including Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend in their diet, reported that they recovered quicker after exercise.
Many of the athletes involved in Ultra-running, a sport that pushes joints and muscles to the limit recommend Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend for helping the recovery process as well as providing them with an ideal fuel source for endurance training.
