While virtually all of the Athletic Trainers already knew about stem cells and their potential benefits, most had absolutely no idea that you can nutritionally support the body's natural ability to release stem cells from your bone marrow
San Clemente, California (PRWEB) July 25, 2009
Athletic Trainers who attended the recent NBATA (National Basketball Association Trainers Association) annual meeting in Chicago were exposed - most for the first time ever - to a promising new concept in the area of reducing exercise recovery time among athletes: stem cell nutrition.
With recent controversy continuing to highlight the use of banned substances by athletes to enhance athletic performance, this novel, non-invasive and all-natural alternative garnered much interest from the Athletic Trainers.
"While virtually all of the Athletic Trainers already knew about stem cells and their potential benefits, most had absolutely no idea that you can nutritionally support the body's natural ability to release stem cells from your bone marrow," said Heather Livingston, STEMTech's VP of Global Product Training & Sports Marketing. According to Livingston, an internationally recognized health expert who has trained and counseled a number of Olympic athletes and professional sports teams, "Science has shown that a higher level of one's own circulating adult stem cells is related to supporting greater health. Our research indicates that this also extends to muscle recovery, which significantly affects athletic training and ability."
According to Livingston, "With the demands of long seasons and the multi-million dollar risk of injury, big name pro athletes are beginning to embrace this new category of supplements in a big way", though she added, "all athletes, from professionals to weekend warriors, can benefit from this kind of nutritional support."
STEMTech's goal within the sports community is to educate athletes and Athletic Trainers about the benefits of stem cell nutrition and their StemSPORTTM dietary supplements. More information can be found at http://www.stemsport.com.
