I’ve had Achilles tendon issues and they were incredibly painful.
Q. Hello Terry, “In the past I’ve had Achilles tendon issues and they were incredibly painful. What can I take to prevent any more injuries in the future?” — Tim F., Tuscon, AZ
A. Dear Tim, When it comes to tendon and ligament injuries, recovery can take a significant amount of time. Because of their structure, tendons and ligaments do not have as much blood supply in comparison to soft tissues. Therefore, a tendon injury takes much longer to heal than a cut on your skin.
To assist in the healing and repairing of the Achilles tendon, I recommend a multi-ingredient combination. It should include the active forms of vitamins B6 and B12, along with magnesium, manganese, bromelain, zinc, vitamin C, niacinamide, and boswellia. One of the most crucial ingredients is manganese. You need at least 36 mg of manganese to have an impact, so make sure the dosing of this critical mineral is adequate. I recommend taking these ingredients three times daily.
If there is pain associated with your Achilles tendon, I would recommend these four ingredients: highly absorbable curcumin, boswellia, DLPA, and nattokinase. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to help get you comfortable as quickly as possible. I advise taking these four ingredients three times daily.
