The Untold Longevity Secret of Successful Strength Athletes – Its all about the Joints!
July 12, 2022
Competitors, weekend warriors, laborious workers and those just trying to live a healthier life (of all ages) can experience the mental and physical anguish people face when they are hurt and looking at weeks/months of being sidelined due to pain or damage. We all say things like “if I knew then what I know now” or “I wish they had this product/technology when I was younger”… But then again you see guys like Mike O’Hearn or Tom Brady that are still at the peak of their physical performance into their 40s and 50,l and wonder “what is their secret?” Truth is, joint care is not just for people with pain, its preventative and precautionary.
Hello all, my name is RJ Ritchie, MS, PA-C, Ph.D – I’ve worked in the fields of orthopedic surgery and sports medicine for over 15 years, and worked for 10 years prior to medicine in exercise science, athletic training, and personal training; so its been 25 years now and counting! I too search for this ever elusive fountain of youth. Years of high level sports, national level bodybuilding, and hard labor jobs working through school have taken its toll.
In the office and the Operating Room, I consistently see acute injuries and worsening chronic conditions and ailments to patients as well for which I ponder “did this person take enough care and precautions to prevent this from happening?”
As I said earlier, joint care is not just for people with pain, its preventative and precautionary.
The harder you train, the more you need to worry about your joints. All the time and energy from pushing hard in the gym can be wasted if your preworkouts, aminos and proteins are not complemented with a great joint product; or else your gains will not last. No one is in it for the short term. Building muscle takes a long time, guys like the Titan himself, Mike O’Hearn, have been in the gym for decades. If you’re not protecting your joints you will never be able to reach your fullest potential. Pain equals weakness, so getting ahead of the pain becomes crucial!
But how do we accomplish this in a safe, all-natural manner? There are many avenues to healthy joints for example, like smart training, proper form, proper warm-up, bona fide exercise techniques, legitimate nutrition AND, supplementation! You need to look for all-natural, clinically studied ingredients to help you perform at your best every workout…Titan Series Muscle & Joint Fix provides this advantage.
The Science: A Two-fold Approach to Healthy Joints
1.Repairing damaged tendons, cartilage and muscles:
Hydrolyzed Beef Collagen is derived from cows and has been clinically shown to increase the production of type I and type III collagen. Collagen is important for the support of bones, tendons, and ligaments. Collagen is a type of protein. In fact, it’s the most abundant structural protein. A structural protein is one that makes up the structure or framework of your cells and tissues. Collagen is composed mainly of the amino acids glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline. These amino acids form three strands, which make up the triple-helix structure characteristic of collagen. An increase in collagen may relieve symptoms of arthritis and may prevent bone loss in older adults.* By protecting our bodies and by increasing the production of collagen, Muscle and Joint Fix may help you recover faster from those killer workouts and training sessions.*
2. Fighting off inflammation:
Muscle & Joint Fix has two popular anti-inflammatory herbs work together to help your body fight off oxidative stress and to help relieve joint pain. White Peony and Turmeric contain antioxidants that can protect cells from free radical damage and oxidative stress and reduce inflammation*. Oxidative stress occurs when free radicals and antioxidants are out of balance. Oxidative stress can cause damage to many of your tissues by breaking down cell tissue and causing DNA damage. This damage can result in harmful inflammation which can lead to accelerated/early onset osteoarthritis, chronic tendonitis & swelling, tears/injuries, chronic pain and decreased workout load volume tolerance.
