Poor recovery after exercise can cause muscle and joint pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and even nausea. It typically lasts for 2-3 days and reduces athletes’ ability for peak performance and obtaining a high-level condition.
Studies have shown that Turmeric can improve muscle after exertion leading to faster restoration of the muscle tissue. This is due to Curcumin, the active constituent in Turmeric, which directly helps muscle cells to increase growth and function. The effects of Curcumin on muscle tissue show significant stimulation of muscle cell regeneration after just a few days.
Taken before a workout, the anti-inflammatory properties of Turmeric can also aid in reducing muscle soreness and pain from from injuries.
In clinical experience, the use of Turmeric in a treatment plan for peak performance, endurance and optimum recovery post-exercise has worked successfully in India for years.
