Ask any physician and they will tell you that exercise is essential to optimal health. What many physicians won’t mention though - especially to non-athletes - is that the key to sustaining optimal health is to balance the breakdown of the body with its renewal.

Thanks to years of research, science has now established that the efficiency of your body’s renewal system depends upon your body’s ability to release adult stem cells. In a nutshell, the greater your ability to release adult stem cells the more efficient your renewal system and the better your body’s ability to sustain good health.

The body is naturally programmed to balance the breakdown and renewal processes but when it gets out of balance problems can develop. In an athlete, this issue of balance between breakdown and renewal is more complicated. For people who are working to improve their performance in a sport or are working toward competition — even amateur competitions — paying attention to natural renewal is critical.

For athletes, it is not enough merely to sustain the body’s health; an athlete’s body also needs extra support for recovery. This is where a patented aqua-botanical concentrate of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) found in a respected clinical study to enhance the body’s natural release of adult stem cells, comes into play.

Both “weekend athletes” and reformed “couch potatoes” are doing what is — by all accounts — good for you. Nevertheless, most every one of these people has experienced muscle soreness after exercise or sport. In medical terms, this discomfort is called “delayed onset muscle soreness” (DOMS), and is thought to be a result of microscopic tearing of the muscle fibers. In addition to small muscle tears, there can be associated swelling in a muscle, which may contribute to soreness.

The amount of tearing (and soreness) depends on how hard and how long a person exercises and what type of exercise he or she does. In fact, any movement you are not used to can lead to DOMS. The weekend athlete limps in on Monday morning because of these microscopic tears, which cause loss of muscle strength, flexibility and power. As the body repairs these microscopic tears, we become stronger. This is recovery.

How quickly and how effectively an athlete’s body can recover affects his/her ability to train without getting injured. This is where the extra support given by the AFA concentrate becomes so valuable for everyone who is exercising to any level. By giving extra support to the body’s natural renewal system, we can support this natural process of recovery from exercise to build strength and stamina.
