"Who sports sports has more of life!" Following this motto, millions of Germans regularly do sports. For the soul and body stabilizing effect of recreational sports has long been medically proven. But where sport is driven, there is also the risk of sports injury: over one million - mostly light - sports injuries such as bruises, bruises, muscle strains or sprains are registered annually in sports and games in Germany.
Enzyme accompanying measures in case of injury
In competitive sports, athletes have been using enzymes for years. Because in almost every sports injury runs in the first phase of inflammation. The enzyme use is rounded off by the usual measures such as:
- Pause, that is immobilization of the injured organ
- Ice, that means cooling the inflammation
- Compression, that is supporting bandage for the injured body part
- High storage, that is increased storage of the injured organ to reduce the swelling
This is how enzymes help with sports injuries
- The inflammatory symptoms such as swelling and pain remain in the frame.
- The healing of the sports injury is accelerated by the enzymes. Thus, the athlete is ready for use again faster.
- It has been proven in acute injuries, the so-called shock therapy in which all at once a large amount of enzyme is taken to achieve an immediate effect.
But many athletes, such as boxers and ice hockey players, today take before competitions - so preventively - already enzymes. A type of enzyme therapy that has been proven to work. Thus, the enzymes are already present in sufficient quantity in the body when the injury occurs. This means that the sports injury usually goes much more smoothly or the expected swelling completely absent. But enzyme combinations have also proven to prevent muscle soreness.
What is osteoarthritis?
Most people suffer more or less from osteoarthritis in old age. Particularly affected are the joints that have a lot to carry the whole life: the knee and hip joints. Where the bones in the joints meet, they are covered by a protective layer of cartilage. Due to the constant strain, the articular cartilage loses its elasticity.
The smooth surface becomes rough and cracked, and joint movement causes cartilage abrasion. The abraded cartilage particles can irritate the joint and later also the joint inner skin becomes inflamed. In this case one speaks of an activated or inflammatory arthrosis. Pain typical of osteoarthritis is initially limited to movement or exercise. Later, they also appear at rest.
Enzymes in osteoarthritis
Enzyme combination preparations have been proven in the treatment of activated osteoarthritis, in which the enzymes intervene at different points in the disease process: It comes to the decrease in swelling and to improve the fluidity of the blood. The inflammation in the joint is not inhibited, but its course is accelerated, so that a better healing can take place.
The result is a decrease in pain and morning stiffness, as well as an improvement in the mobility of the diseased joint. As a combination partner, vitamin E has proven itself. Soft-tissue rheumatism does not affect the synovium, cartilage, and bone, but the soft tissues surrounding the joint, such as muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bursae. Soft-tissue rheumatism, among other causes, is also caused by overuse, one-sided strain, and incorrect posture.
Particularly common is the epicondylitis, the "tennis elbow" or tendonitis, associated with unpleasant pain and movement impairment. Again, enzyme combinations lead to a significant decrease in symptoms and the inflammatory process.
