The scientific community acknowledges the heart health benefits of soy, a claim validated in 1999 by the Food and Drug Administration. Studies show that lunasin, a naturally occurring peptide, is largely responsible for soy’s cholesterol-lowering properties.
Chronic inflammation takes a toll on long-term both on sports performance as well as overall quality of life. Chronic systemic inflammation can lead to a myriad of diseases (such as heart disease and arthritis) but it can also greatly increase the speed of your body’s natural aging process. So, curbing inflammation levels within the body is beneficial for supporting an active lifestyle, sports performance as well as overall health and longevity. For an athlete, whether professional or recreational, over-training can cause the body to be in an inflammatory state where over-use injuries to ligaments, tendons, cartilage and joints can become an issue. Long term inflammation within the body keeps the body in a constant state of alert which makes these soft tissue and joint structures more susceptible to both acute and over-use injuries.
Dr. Alfredo Galvez talks about how Lunasin can help in recovery
Chronic inflammation can cause the following effects on sport/training/exercise performance:
· A Decrease in endurance
· Increasing soreness and recovery time after strenuous activity
· Impaired muscle synthesis
· Intensified perceived exertion
· Disrupting cellular energy production
Overall, inflammation can make training sessions and exercise feel more difficult, decrease positive results, extend recovery time, and decrease energy levels.
