Whether you're a soccer mom, pro athlete, or silver sneaker, one thing WE all need to do every day is stretch our bodies. Dogs and cats do it organically, NY Yankee players, ballet dancers, soccer players, basketball players, football players, race car drivers (both NASCAR and Formula One) all do it because they know it's the secret to protecting their bodies from injury.
Most of us don't realize that our everyday aches and pains, as well as our injuries, all need daily movement in the form of recovery stretching to encourage blood flow and remove toxic waste caused by trauma and oxidative stress (like living). Blood flow is the miracle-worker when you want to feel better fast because the super nutrients that nourish, heal, and protect our muscles, tendons, and ligaments are delivered via blood flow.
Stretching is an everyday job, just like brushing your teeth, so your routine needs to fit into your lifestyle, so you can be consistent and frequent, and you'll never skip a day.
No equipment needed. So simple, safe, and fast you can’t "not do it." Do it every day as soon as you wake up.
Wanna make it easier? Hydrate by drinking a full glass of water (warm with lemon is best) to help flush out toxins and make blood thinner and easier to move around, which also makes muscles more limber and pliable.
Need more advanced healing or rehabbing? Take your Recovery Agent before stretching and Daily Joint Repair after.
Lisa Tip: Whenever people ask me, “What are the best supplements to take for joint health or to reduce aches and pains?” the answer is simple science. Take the daily essentials for joint health, which are Recovery Agent, Pure Omega 3 (or Daily Wellness for advanced cases), and always start with Complete Protein Powder. It should be the core of everyone’s nutrition because it provides the right kind, and the clinically dosed amount, of amino acids that promote healing.
