Natural recovery for broken leg
There are many ways to help speed up the recovery of a broken leg or a broken foot, however sometimes the oldest and the simplest methods are the ones which work the best. The product being referred to here is made by Mother Nature herself, Milk.
Sometimes, we complicate things so much that we lose sight of the little things. People have 3D printed casts nowadays that are lighter, stronger than ever before and these may help the bone to heal faster. There are nutritional supplements that are being sold over the counter at all major pharmacies that claim to have everything from essential micro nutrients to unknown elixirs which magically speed up the process of healing and recovery.
All of these things may or may not have a significant effect on the recovery process and to what extent that effect may be is also up for debate. One thing however that is proven scientifically to help your broken foot get better is Milk.
Milk does make you stronger
Good old Milk is rich in calcium and proteins all of which are essential in the reparative process. In fact, the main process by which Milk aids the recovery process is by providing a boost to your immune system.
The immune system affects the functioning of almost every aspect of our body. It is what keeps us resistant to infection and it is also what decides how fast we get back on our feet. Scientific research has shown that by having a full complement of essential amino acids, Milk is able to fulfill the nutritional requirements that our disease limiting cells need.
Vitamin D and Calcium
Most people know that Calcium plays an important role in making our bones stronger but much fewer know that we need Vitamin D almost as much as we need Calcium. In fact, it is the presence of Vitamin D in the body that helps the absorption of Calcium from various food sources and into our bodies where it can be finally used for purposes like the healing of your broken leg.
Now, Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that is extremely rare ion natural food stuff. In fact, for vegetarians milk is one of the very few things that contain this Vitamin. Other food stuff like fatty fish (salmon, tuna)
and Eggs also have Vitamin D but the amount available to our body can vary depending upon the style of cooking.
Milk does not come with any of these caveats.
There is a reason that Body Builders drink Milk
Milk was the original protein shake; in fact it is still every bit as good as the other Protein shakes on the market. The process involved in the repair of muscles after they have been injured due to weight lifting is very similar to what goes on during the fracture healing process.
The muscles, tendons and the supporting cartilages all need to heal after a fracture. It is almost never just the bone that is injured during a fracture. In fact apart from these hard tissue structures, the micro-vasculature around the area also plays a vital role.
Milk has the necessary healing factors that are essential for the growth and development of this intricate anatomical system. Body Builders have been using this unknowingly for years as they chig down glass after glass to help in their recovery.
Read between the lines
Sometimes it is important for corporations to develop newer sources of income and so they market these products aggressively in the market (ex: Crutch, Knee Scooter, Knee Walker…) Your decisions should be based on scientific research and proven results. Milk is simple to get and delicious to drink. It is also extremely beneficial to your health. Look beyond the marketing and make the right choice.
