|More downed branches ;(|
|My beloved Dawn Redwood!|
So, darn it, my ankle rolled right over that branch and boy oh, boy, did it hurt. The 1st 24hours were the worst. I kept the snow on it, 10-15minutes on, 10-15minutes off. But what do you eat to help reduce inflammation?

Thank goodness for my gas fireplace!

I also take Physiologics Cartilage Companion for the Vitamin E & Omega oils, besides the glucosamine & chondroitin.
I am a big proponent of getting what you need through your food:
"Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food" Hippocrates (Father of Medicine)
It makes sense, you have a better chance of absorbing 100% of the nutrients from your food vs. supplements. Nutrient absorption from supplements and ergogenic aids is limited to about 40%.
Well, here goes another shot of that Tart Cherry Juice!
Hopefully my foot & ankle will hold up for my half-marathon in Florida this Sunday!
