Segment One – Tim Doelman & JJ Betts of Core Power explain the superiority of Core Power and the importance of nutritional recovery. Get the inside story on how Core Power is made and why it’s the right product to restore your core and not leave your workout unfinished.
What is Core Power? It’s a protein revolution out there, and people everywhere are discovering why protein is an important part of their diets. Protein is critical for everybody, but even more so for active individuals who are searching for what to drink and what to eat after a workout. The market has responded to this consumer awareness with a number of high-protein recovery shakes, but most of them are made with powders and additives and are therefore chalky, hard to swallow and awful tasting. Core Power looked at this as an opportunity to give people who are looking for the best source of protein what they really want: natural protein that tastes great.
Core Power is a delicious post workout recovery drink for your active lifestyle, Core Power is a real milk protein drink made from fresh, low-fat, lactose-free milk and real honey. Its balanced protein to carb ratio and nutrient-rich profile make for the perfect end of every workout. From endurance sports and bodybuilding to running, yoga and cross-fit, Core Power helps you recover faster, build lean muscle and stay at the top of your game. No matter which game you happen to play.
Segment Two – Dr. Adam Anz of the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine discusses the advancements in stem cell research with Dr. Cole: procedures, uses, benefits and the future technology; treating knee injuries by removing the deforming source by unloading the joint with use of the Rebound Cartilage Brace by OSSUR. The Rebound Cartilage brace is a protective functional solution designed to support regeneration of the knee cartilage after repasir procedures. Based on the clinically-proven 3-Points of Leverage System and patented Cartilage Protection Straps,™ joint unloading is maintained in flexion for protection of the cartilage during the healing process.
When one walks through the various wards of a hospital, it is easy to encounter a wide range of patients who are dealing with a number of health issues. A child may be battling with leukemia. An elderly man could be struggling with Parkinson’s disease, hoping that one day, scientists will find a cure. A college football player with a knee injury may wonder whether surgeons will be able to repair his tendons and get his career back on track.
On the surface, it may not seem like these individuals share much in common. However, in the eyes of science, these patients may all benefit from stem cell research. This field of medicine is rife with opportunities for therapy, drug development and other scientific advances that may ultimately lead to treatments for diseases that were once thought to be incurable.
The potential for stem cells in regenerative medicine has piqued the interest of many athletes who have sustained injuries, such as torn ligaments and tendons. Adult stem cells may be especially promising if they are harvested from an athlete’s own bone marrow and fat cells. At the Andrews Institute, doctors and surgeons are studying stem cells in order to bring the best treatments to patients in a manner that is safe, effective and ethically responsible.
