Especially useful fruits and vegetables

When doing a lot of sports, it is a good idea to include starch-containing products on the menu. These products help restore energy reserves lost during training more quickly. Potatoes are a rich source of starch. Not only are potatoes a rich source of Vitamin C, but they also contain nearly all nutrients necessary to maintain life. Fruits that contain high amounts of anti-oxidants are also invaluable. Melons are great for restoring damaged muscle tissues. The same can be said for pineapples and kiwi, which greatly help combat pain and swelling. Don’t forget about bananas – they are especially rich in potassium.

Fish

Combining different nuts gives the best effect – almonds and Brazilian nuts help maintain hormonal balance and walnuts help combat fatigue.

Fermented dairy products and probiotics

Use of fermented dairy products improves digestion, reduces swelling and pains, strengthens the immune system and helps the organism recover a lot quicker. Probiotics can be found in unsweetened yoghurt, fermented milk products (kefir, buttermilk), as well as pickled and fermented vegetables.

Eggs

Eggs should be consumed to speed up cell restoration and strengthen the body’s immune system. Eggs are a rich source of proteins, which are consumed by the organism almost completely. They also contain vital amino acids that are not found in the human body naturally, so eggs are a must to consume regularly.

Seasoning

The specialist recommends using different seasoning to reduce pain. These include turmeric, ginger or cinnamon. They all help against swelling, muscle and other types of pain. Three grams of cinnamon can help stimulate metabolism and improve one’s mood.

Water and green tea
