Enhancing Recovery from BJJ & MMA sessions

Key points:

  • Gut health – reduce sugar intake, increase fermented food and probiotic intake.  Fibre too.
  • Omega 3/Omega 6 ratio – increase omega 3 (specifically look at EPA) and reduce omega 6
  • Consume more turmeric with black pepper
  • Consume ginger
  • Consume apple cider vinegar 10 mins before main meal to aid digestion
  • Pineapple contains bromelain which is a strong anti-inflammatory
  • Himalayan salt, rather than table salt to obtain a range of minerals, including magnesium which reduces blood pressure as opposed to sodium which increases it.
