I'd like to share some helpful information presented at MoveMend a few weeks ago regarding nutrition to speed recovery from injury. Hopefully you or someone you know will find it helpful.
Step #1: Eat more anti-inflammatory foods
-Olive oil, fish oil, flax oil
-Avocados, nuts and seeds
-Cold water fish (salmon, herring, sardines)
Step #2: Avoid inflammatory foods
-Vegetable oils like canola
-Trans and hydrogenated fats
Step #3: "Repair and Remodel" phase
-Eat high quality protein: meats, legumes, eggs, single ingredient protein powders
-Good fats, bone broth, oysters
-Fruits and veggies!
-Hydration and rest
To your health,
