Regeneration is a highly active phase for building up the body. If you view this part of the training as such, then it will likely be easier for you to accept a rest without feeling guilty about it. BIESTMILCH, with its inflammation-modulating potential, is of inestimable value in this apparently inactive phase of training.
It is well known that endurance exercise goes hand in hand with micro-injuries in Muscles, tendons, connective tissue and the smallest blood vessels go. These tiny injuries are necessary for the muscle to adapt to a higher level of difficulty. These injuries can only affect muscle cell membranes, individual fibers, or the entire fiber bundle.
The reasons for such micro-injuries are not only the mechanical stress, but also a rising and falling temperature within the tissue, a disturbed blood flow and a changed concentration of hydrogen, or flooding with free oxygen radicals and / or a lack of energy supply . The injuries can be so tiny that you don’t even notice them, or so bad that you experience prolonged muscle ache (DOMS) (Delayed Onset Of Muscle Soreness).
Creatine kinase and higher than usual myoglobin levels in the blood are typical in such cases. All of these injuries promote the inflammatory processes in the body. These inflammatory processes are not only to be seen negatively, they are the foundation of all healing and all adaptation processes that ultimately produce the desired training effect.
Healing processes require a strong and balanced immunity
Our immune system controls the inflammatory processes and then the healing process. An intact immune system can heal micro-injuries within 3-5 days. If micro-injuries do not heal well due to a weakened immune system – this can occur, for example, due to insufficient regeneration time – muscle tears and injuries to the tendons can result.
Any form of inflammation demands energy, be it an injury or an infection, and thus leads to a decrease in performance. Due to the fact that all muscle fibers are never activated at once – studies cite a maximum of 50% in elite athletes – the muscle can tolerate overuse for quite a long time. Different fibers are activated according to a kind of rotation principle.
The pattern of active fibers changes even during the same training session. Parts of the muscle find time to regenerate, even if the entire muscle does not have adequate recovery time.
Efficient development processes require recovery times
Training and competition are situations in which the dismantling processes dominate. The metabolism is catabolic, the levels of cortisone and catecholamine in the blood rise and the inflammatory components of the immune system are activated. In contrast, regeneration is the time for cells and tissue to build up. In this phase, the energy is urgently needed for protein synthesis. The adaptation of the muscles to a higher performance level can begin. Muscle build-up only takes place during this recovery phase and is the actual goal of the training. You may feel guilty for not exercising, but your body is not lazy, it is working hard meanwhile.
BIESTMILCH supports healing and muscle building
In a state of inflammation, BIESTMILCH works as an anti-inflammatory and the growth factors it contains affect cell regeneration. The injuries to the cells are manifold after intensive training sessions and after a race. The natural molecule cocktail in BIESTMILCH promotes muscle growth and the repair processes of the mucous membranes on all external surfaces, be it in the stomach, intestines or bronchi etc.
