Well psssssssssst i have the inside scoop
RECOVERY is not just for your muscles but for your own Overall health! Did you know:
- Strenuous exercise can cause a decrease in our "good" bacteria in the gut AND strenuous exercise affects our gut motility!
- AND over training and not taking enough rest can cause weakening of your gut lining (due to the excess stress you are putting on it aka increase in cortisol levels) and causing more issues like excess bloating, gas and ETC!
Resting and taking those resting period is 𝘌𝘚𝘚𝘌𝘕𝘛𝘐𝘈𝘓!!! For muscle and replenishing glycogen stores (which Glutamine is an energy source for intestinal and immune cells helping maintain the barrier between the intestines and the rest of your body and aids with proper growth of intestinal cells aka aides in gut health and keeping your lining and microbiome STRONG)
