Workouts and Health
Tough Post-workout Recovery?
You usually get the consequences of your hard workout one or two days later as your immune system decreases. And you may feel like going down with something up to 3 days later.
Organic Lycopene can help you recover faster as it boosts your defense systems and thus helps
- decrease muscle soreness, pains, cramps, stiffness, and fatigue
- speed up recovery after a strenuous workout.
Intensive workouts and oxidative stress - How does it work?
Free radicals are normally produced in our bodies for specific purposes such as energy production and immune defense. However, when in excess, they are destructive. The resulting damage is known as ‘oxidative stress.’
During an intensive workout, your oxygen consumption increases dramatically. This triggers too many free radicals for your anti-oxidative system to eliminate. Your body is facing oxidative stress that leads to small oxidative damage such as muscular injury, cramps, stiffness, pain, muscle soreness, and fatigue. Your immune system has been weakened.
With training, the body learns how to handle oxidative stress and its anti-oxidative capacities will expand. The bodies of trained athletes have enhanced their anti-oxidative system capabilities. However, everyone has a limit to how much they can adjust these capabilities.
Even well-trained athletes are not sheltered from injury particularly when they over-train.
More than 50 published clinical studies demonstrated that Organic Lycopene properties help stimulate the two main body defense systems, i.e., the anti-oxidative system and the immune system
