Well Fit * Why Muscles Ache

September 20, 2017

Well Fit  *  Why Muscles Ache                 *  Answers to Aches *

 

Have you ever wondered why muscles ache  when you have worked out  or completed  an exercise class.

 

Understand your Body  and how it works.

 

Your body has a heart which pumps the blood round giving oxygen to all your organs and limbs, so when you move your arm or leg the muscle is creating energy.  

Once the oxygen is used up there is a waste product called  lactic acid    and your lymph system  comes along and picks up the waste product  and transports it to the lymph  nodes who then  dispose of the lactic acid.

 

The lymph  system  does not have a heart to pump it round so it relies on your muscles moving to pump the lymph  system around the  body.

 

When your muscles are bunched up,  the lymph system  cannot get through to the lymph nodes so the lactic acid then builds up  which  can cause aches, cramps and general discomfort.

 

The more lactic acid builds up the more intense the ache.

 

 Answer    *    Release the muscle and you release the ache  *

 

An Epsom Salt bath  was the original way to release muscles (Epsom Salts is Magnesium Sulphate) and muscles   need Magnesium to work properly.

 

 

which every organ in the Body Needs for health as well as relaxation.
