"Musculoskeletal injuries (muscles, tendons, bones & ligaments) are extremely common within professional football, accounting for more than 60% of all injuries within the English Premier League and nearly 70% within the National Football League. Such injuries are typically underpinned by weakness within the extracellular matrix, which requires specific loading protocols separated by a six hour refractory period to maximally stimulate bone and collagen synthesis rates, respectively.
Beyond loading, supplementation with 15 g of collagen and ~50 mg of vitamin C has recently been shown to elicit a further two-fold increase in collagen synthesis rates above that shown via exercise alone. Such findings have immediate implications within professional football, preventing and accelerating return to play from musculoskeletal injuries, which have huge competitive, financial and personal costs.
As a result of the compelling science outlined above, the Nutrition X repair shot makes up an essential part of our pre- and rehabilitation process. Their recently revised formula provides all the ingredients required to maximise collagen synthesis (20 g collagen; 96 mg vitamin C; 1 mg Copper), while the high palatability of the tropical and raspberry flavouring increases behavioural consumption and enjoyment amongst the squad. I would highly recommend this product to any nutrition or medical practitioners working within professional football."
