Maximize your Training Results
Busting your ass with training and not recovering efficiently or getting the results you want? Control inflammation and recovery faster. If you recover and repair quicker, you can get back to training hard sooner, which essentially brings you greater results quicker! Eating a diet rich in foods that are known to reduce inflammation such as chia seeds, blueberries and salmon can do wonders for repair and recovery. In conjunction with this, minimizing foods like processed meats, baked goods, and foods high in saturated fat can assist in keeping inflammation under control. Additionally, supplementing your diet with Omega 3 fatty acids is one the smartest recovery moves you can make. Typically, within today’s western diet we’re not consuming enough Omega 3’s to reap the powerful benefits. Not only are they shown to positively impact brain function and overall cellular health, this essential fatty acid is also linked to increased metabolism, increased blood flow and heart function as well as weight loss. The EPA form of Omega 3’s particularly has been shown to reduce inflammation at the cellular level. By adding Omega 3’s to your regular diet you are setting yourself up for success when it comes to overall performance and recovery from intense workouts.
Maximize your training efforts by taking steps to reduce inflammation to speed up your recovery. Supplementing with high quality Omega 3′s is a great addition to an anti-inflammatory diet that will help maximize your results!
