How does H3 Rapid Recovery help with athletic injuries and conditioning?
The basic principle of all athletic conditioning is the breaking down and rebuilding of skeletal muscular tissues. Sometimes called “micro-tears”, these small tears occur in the skin, tendons, ligaments, and muscles of athletes. If these tears heal rapidly, they result in increased strength, speed, and agility. If they do not heal rapidly, they may result in long-term chronic injuries, pain, and weakness.
Micro-tears are also the cause of pain and swelling felt after training. At one time, it was thought that soreness was the result of a build-up of lactic acid in the muscle, but it is now understood that this is not the case. Lactic acid causes the muscle contraction process to signal a stop in order to protect the muscle from damage, but once that happens, the liver, heart, and red muscle fibers all act together to metabolize the lactic acid and quickly remove it from the system. The resulting soreness and stiffness felt afterwards is actually a result of the muscle damage that occurred during exercise.
In response to swelling and damage, the muscles signal the body to release healing elements (sometimes referred to as “Growth Factors”) into the damaged muscles. It is a very complicated process involving many metabolic processes and chemicals to create satellite cells and synthesize proteins to build new muscles and repair the old, and all the elements are transported through the blood.
H3 Rapid Recoveryis very effective because it supports this process in two ways: first, by increasing the amount of blood flow to the damaged muscles, and secondly, it ensures that the blood is perfuse with healing elements, or in this case the “Growth Factors” needed to synthesize the proteins to build new muscles and repair damaged muscles. H3 Rapid Recovery has been clinically shown to accelerate healing to less than half the time normally required to recover. Therefore, reducing stiffness associated with swelling and pain, allowing the athlete to regain the full range of motion in the muscles and joints. This reduces the risk of training injuries due to poor form, reduces the risk of injuries associated with overstressing joints and ligaments, and reduces the risk of injuries from major muscle tears.
