While exercising helps athletic bodies remain fit, workouts often stretch people beyond their comfort zone. People who infrequently engage in strenuous effort or have a more intense than normal workout can face stiffness, fatigue, and pain in joints; the worst cases may even cause serious bone and muscle injuries. Natural ingredients such as Cissus Quadrangularis and Omega-3 fish oil are efficient for avoiding these problems.
Do you feel bone-tired after regular workouts? A body needs post-workout recovery to help your bones and muscle overcome the strain caused by a hectic workout or extreme practice.
Often, athletes push themselves too hard, causing injury to bones and muscle that may not be immediately apparent. It is essential to help the body recover from exertion completely and rapidly while repairing and re-energizing muscle and joints. However, the body’s natural recovery time may be tardy for various reasons.
A few points help speedy post-workout and/or injury recovery and alleviate pain.
- Take adequate rest between workouts
- Keep yourself well hydrated
- Ensure your diet has adequate calcium and protein
- Use ointments and/or ice packs to relieve muscle or joint pain
- Nothing heals as well as a good night’s sleep. So sleep well!
Adding a good health supplement to your diet can do wonders, in tandem with the abovementioned points. BestSource Nutrition offers two potent natural products for athletic and fitness conscious people that help in quickly building a strong body and healthier joints while ensuring faster bone, joint and muscle recovery after the workout as well.
BestSource™ Cissus Quadrangularis Extract and BestSource™ Omega-3 Fish Oil are excellent bone supplements that help maintain bone health and reduce post-workout and injury recovery time.
1) Cissus Quadrangularis
BestSource™ Cissus Quadrangularis Extract (350mg/60 Veg Caps) is extracted from Cissus Quadrangularis, a native succulent vine found in Africa and in tropical Sri Lanka & India. This plant of the grape (Vitaceae) family has tremendous medicinal value as general tonic and analgesic.
Cissus Quadrangularis: A Staple for Body-Builders & Athletes
Cissus Quadrangularis offers body-builders, athletes, and even regular gym-goers immense therapeutic value. Regular use of this herb ensures quick recovery after a workout and swifter injury recovery. BestSource™ Cissus Quadrangularis Extract offers all the goodness of this medicinal plant as a convenient, ethical veg (non-animal origin) capsule.
For people undergoing rigorous training, BestSource™ Cissus Quadrangularis Extract is an excellent bodybuilding supplement, devoid of harmful anabolic steroids. The Cissus Quadrangularis content in these capsules brings 3- ketosteroids, along with delta amyrin and delta amyrone, which have both anabolic and styptic properties. These are handy for arresting bleeding in case of accidents during training and they aid bone healing.
Body-builders and athletes often experience muscle aches due to strained muscles due to overexertion and overtraining. Its rich Vitamin C content means BestSource™ Cissus Quadrangularis Extract offers anti-oxidizing properties that help reduce muscle and joint inflammation and pain.
BestSource™ Cissus Quadrangularis Extract has great analgesic properties, making it a natural and chemical-free alternative to Aspirin or Ibuprofen for post-workout muscle and joint aches and stress injury with associated pain in joints or muscle.
Offering all these benefits, this supplement is the perfect natural solution for speedy recovery of muscle and joints after heavy training or from-injury for anyone seeking a fitter and more active life, along with athletes and serious bodybuilders.
Several clinical & lab studies using Cissus Quadrangularis corroborate these benefits, indicating that there can be up to 50% faster recovery from bone and muscle injuries. These, in turn, mean that active use of this supplement may reduce the risk of bone fractures by almost 40%.
How BestSource™ Cissus Quadrangularis Extract Works?
Cissus Quadrangularis is an effective bone health supplement for body-builders & athletes alike:
- It stimulates increased production of Mesenchymal stem cells that cause bone-forming
osteoblasts. Studies indicate that Cissus Quadrangularis works through gene transcription to turn on osteoblasts, boosting production of osteocalcin1 and osteocalcin2. Thus, it acts as a gene regulator to support bone building.
- It alleviates pain and swelling associated with bone, tendon, and ligament injuries. It reduces inflammatory nitric oxide (iNOS) and core inflammatory gene signal NF-kappaB. Its anti-glucocorticoid and anabolic properties are very useful for serious bodybuilders and athletes, as these endogenous glucocorticoids cause bone and muscle tissue catabolism/breakdown during exercise and workouts.
- It increases the body’s absorption of calcium, thus strengthening bones, enhancing
mineralization, and stimulating regeneration of connective tissues and tendons.
2) Omega-3 Fish Oil
Another great addition to the diet of body-builders and athletes is BestSource™ Omega-3 Fish Oil (600mg/60 soft gels). Omega-3 fish oil has all the goodness of fish oil, rich in several omega-3 fatty acids, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) that have anti-inflammatory properties.
How does BestSource™ Omega-3 Fish Oil Omega-3 Fish Oil Work?
BestSource™ Omega-3 Fish Oil potentially enhances joint mobility through many biochemical actions such as alteration in eicosanoid biosynthesis, through signal transduction, and by influencing gene expression.
Each serving of BestSource™ Omega-3 Fish Oil (i.e. every 2 soft gels) contains approx. 360mg of Omega-3 fish oil. Omega-3 fatty acids enhance joint mobility by inhibiting the expression of several bone-weakening proteins. Regular consumption of BestSource™ Omega-3 Fish Oil helps these omega-3 fatty acids get incorporated into the cartilage cell membrane or chondrocyte, which decreases cartilage-degrading enzymes and many inflammatory cytokines like IL-1alpha, TNF alpha, and COX-2.In this manner, it helps alleviate inflammatory conditions of the bone resulting from intense training that athletes may undergo.
Research shows the omega-3 fatty acids in BestSource™ Omega-3 Fish Oil contribute to healthy joints and decrease commonplace symptoms of stiffness, tenderness, and joint pain that body-builders and athletes face. In addition, it also helps increase blood flow to body parts during rigorous exercise and training, thus lowering muscle and bone aches after the workout sessions.
BestSource™ Omega-3 Fish Oil also contains EPA and DHA that studies show as decreasing inflammation and increasing anti-inflammatory markers such as IL-10 and TGF beta.
These two supplements, BestSource™ Cissus Quadrangularis Extract and BestSource™ Omega-3 Fish Oil, when used in combination with the above-mentioned active and healthy lifestyle pointers, can significantly and ethically help people in training rapidly reduce their post-workout joint and muscle pain, stiffness or injury recovery periods.
