Managing exercise-induced inflammation: AXP Recovery Probiotic vs Anti-Inflammatories

Muscle inflammation is created by the immune system in response to the stress of physical exercise. While this inflammation helps to repair muscles, too much inflammation can cause excessive muscle soreness and swelling and reduce strength and range of motion.

Many athletes need help managing their exercise-induced inflammation so that they can keep up with their intense training and competition schedules.

Anti-inflammatory medications

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen and diclofenac are often used as a short-term solution for muscle soreness caused by inflammation, and they work by blocking inflammation pathways in the body.

While these are effective and sometimes necessary medications, there are side effects of long term use which include an increased risk of gastritis and ulceration of the digestive tract.

Although not commonly spoken about, many elite athletes become acquainted with these problems over time due to the high intensity of training and exercise that their bodies endure and the need for these medications to help relieve symptoms of excessive muscle inflammation.

AXP Recovery Probiotic

AXP Recovery Probiotic also targets exercise-induced muscle inflammation but works differently to NSAIDs.

It is another tool athletes can use to help manage mild muscle inflammation.

Recovery Probiotic contains living beneficial gut bacteria that work to regulate immune system function and prevent excessive muscle inflammation over time. By interacting with immune cells in the gut, these specific probiotic bacteria reduce the amount of inflammation created by immune cells in muscle tissue over time. With regular use, AXP Recovery Probiotic helps to keep inflammation under control and improve muscle recovery time.

Rest assured, AXP Recovery Probiotic can be taken alongside anti-inflammatory medications.
