The terms “I’m sore, banged up, injured and tight” are all common phrases when you talk to most combat sports athletes, and rightfully so! Hand to hand combat takes a massive toll on your body, and naturally after training we will feel general aches and pains.
What most combat athletes don’t understand, is that the main cause of their aches and pains is usually due to inflammation. But what does the term inflammation actually mean? When most people think of inflammation they associate it with a joint or muscle, but at its core, inflammation is a systemic immune response designed to strengthen and repair an area of the body. Believe it or not, inflammation is actually great in small amounts and is a natural part of training and the recovery process, but if you go a little too hard, like most of us combat athletes do, the body at a microscopic level basically starts to self-harm.
The general population are becoming more and more susceptible to inflammation due to poor diet and lack of exercise, but even for a combat athlete that ate healthy and trained everyday, due to the stress we put on our bodies through rigorous training and combat activities, proper nutrition becomes an even more important factor to the recovery of a combat athlete to reduce excessive inflammation.
One of the key ways CMBT reload reduces inflammation is by utilising nature’s most potent anti-inflammatory, curcumin.

This potent mixture is beneficial in supporting your joints, brain, heart, and circulatory system by helping to neutralise free radicals (inflammation).
