Prevent Inflammation & Impaired Healing by Avoiding Painkillers & Ibuprofen

Avoid painkillers and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as Ibuprofen, during training, as they cause damage to the gut, and hinder absorption of nutrients, therefore delaying recovery.

NSAIDs have also been shown to impair healing of tendons, and blunt the muscle hypertrophy response.

When you combine physical activity with NSAIDs, you increase damage to the intestines, as a result of redistribution of blood flow from the gut to the muscles, skin, heart and lungs. This harms the lining of the gut, which in turn, can put you at increased risk for greater susceptibility to toxins, because the gut lining is more permeable, and not as protective.

It will also inhibit absorption of nutrients.

Long term NSAID use can lead to serious damage to the gut, and chronic inflammation.

Instead of reaching for an anti-inflammatory drug, opt instead for the more natural option of fresh turmeric.

Turmeric contains the chemical curcumin. Curcumin and other chemicals in turmeric are beneficial in decreasing swelling (inflammation), and therefore can be used to treat conditions that cause inflammation.
