Hello:

I'm experiencing a lot of soreness lately from my workouts.  I'm 41, very fit, and have worked out with weights for years.  However, of late, the soreness is really sticking, so I am thinking about inflammation and possible supplements to combat it.  I'm considering either 5 LOX Inhibitor 100 mg or Super Bio Circumin 400 mg, and was wondering if anyone had experience with these and which route they would go.  I'd rather not acquire both.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks!

Doc,

I take both and they may help your soreness.

This is just a thought, but maybe the soreness could be a symptom of a recovery problem. Although you are still pretty young, you aren't 30 anymore. You might need more recovery time or more help with extra creatine and possibly the addition of d-ribose if you don't already use it.

Charles Staley also recommends aspirin before a good workout. 

"Pre-training salicylate (aspirin): Aspirin is perhaps the most
powerful anabolic drug you can possibly take (legally, in any
event). This effective substance operates on a variety of levels. . .
check with your physician before implementing a regular schedule of aspirin therapy,
no matter how small the dose."

Muscle soreness can be caused by lactic acid buildup or injury.  If it is the former, more exercise, hydration and DMG may help.  If you suspect injury, please consult your physician.  Both of the supplements you mention can help with inflammation, as can others.

I take LEF's 5-Lox Inhibitor, and it does seem to help.  You should also consider taking MSM, Collagen Type 2, and Glucosamine-Condroiten.

Thanks guys!  I take creatine with my pre-workout supplement before every workout, and I can't take aspirin because I am allergic to it.  I took MSM for 3 months when I was dealing with a back problem, and it went away, although I was also taking hyaluronic acid and going to a chiropractor also. 

I'm going to pick up some 5 LOX and give it a shot.  I've been training 5 days per week, so maybe I need to cut it back some.  I've also considered switching over to a crossfit type workout, but it's really expensive.  I guess the bottom line is that it's expensive to stay healthy and fit, but the alternative is worse!

I would recommend BCAAs and creatine (must take on empty stomach) for muscle soreness (before and after workouts), especially before bed on an empty stomach.  Take with Vitamin C and B-6, which are important co-factors for the Leucine, etc.

If you have tendinitis or joint soreness (like me), I would recommend the curcumin and 5 Lox Inhibitor.  You could also try Cissus Quadrangularis.  Hard to find, but there is some very interesting research on this herb.

In all cases, consider Rhodiola and Ashwagandha (Sensoril) for stamina and recovery.  The Sensoril has been shown to lower cortisol levels.

It seems like a good nutrient to try for the prevention or recovery of muscle soreness is the Life Extension Foundation's bromelain. The amount to use would take some experimentation.
