Sports and Fitness Support: Enhancing Recovery


Principal Proposed Natural Treatments

Other Proposed Natural Treatments

In the competitive world of sports, the smallest advantage can make an enormous difference in the outcome of a contest. A supplement that could improve an athlete's strength, speed, or endurance could make the difference between tenth place and first place in a race. Supplements advocated for these purposes are discussed in the article Sports and Fitness Support: Enhancing Performance . Supplements could conceivably play another helpful role for athletes: aiding recovery from the “side effects” of intense exercise. While exercise of moderate intensity is almost undoubtedly a purely positive activity, high-intensity endurance exercise, such as running marathons, can cause respiratory infections. In addition, all forms of exercise, when carried to the extremes, can cause severe muscle soreness, which may in turn get in the way of training. Herbs and supplements advocated for these problems are the subject of this article. For information on natural treatments intended to aid recovery from injuries caused by sports, see the Sports Injury article.
