In the past, we've talked to you about the many benefits of exercise, from helping you maintain a healthy weight to boosting your mood. It's hard to find a downside to staying active -- but if you've suffered a sports-related injury or are starting to feel aches and pains in your joints, you might not be feeling too excited about your regular workout.


This month, we've focused on products and treatments that help you maintain an active lifestyle. On the cutting-edge of natural, noninvasive treatments, we've been using regenerative therapies including stem cell therapy to reduce inflammation and enhance healing in injured or worn-out joints. Keeping the right balance of vitamins and minerals is also important for a busy, active life. Check out our recommendations for ensuring that you replenish your body's electrolyte levels, and keep reading to learn more about how magnesium helps support your whole-body health.

How Your Own Cells Can Help You Heal Faster
Staying in shape is already hard work. If you experience regular aches and pains -- whether it's a bum knee or tennis elbow -- putting in gym time can be that much harder. As we get older, wear-and-tear on joints inevitably builds up, but you don't have to live with that pain and let it take away from enjoying your life. For the past year at Rejuvé, we've been treating patients with problems like knee osteoarthritis and ligament tears with stem cell therapy, leveraging the body's own healing power to repair and replace damaged tissue and to regenerate lost tissue. This same-day, in-office procedure has minimal downtime and requires no general anesthesia.

This therapy is supplemented by injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) -- another healing tool that comes from your own body. Platelets are the component of blood that helps your body heal; by separating out and then concentrating these, we can create a solution that's rich in growth factors. PRP is used in conjunction with the initial stem cell injection to enhance regeneration, reducing inflammation, encouraging circulation, and continuing to stimulate the growth of new, healthy tissue. PRP can also be used alone as an alternative to cortisone injections for ailments like plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and Achilles tendonitis.


If you're in pain, and especially if you've had trepidation about a more invasive procedure like a joint replacement, regenerative therapy may be a good option for you. Come in for a consultation with Dr. Tang to learn more about stem cell therapy, and find out how you might be able to benefit from the procedure. Call Rejuvé today at 408-740-5320 for an appointment.

Do you regularly experience leg cramps, headaches or migraines, heart palpitations, fatigue, or symptoms of PMS? Though these might seem to be completely unrelated issues, they can all potentially be linked back to a common cause: Magnesium deficiency. Few people get enough magnesium from their diets. If you're active, you need even more magnesium -- and you use it up more quickly. 

Magnesium helps to balance your blood sugars, assists with liver detoxification, offers adrenal support, aids in sleep, and can help with mood. It's vital for those with an active lifestyle is because magnesium is necessary for energy (ATP) production, proper circulation, and optimal skeletal muscle functioning. This essential mineral actually functions as the bio-inorganic catalyst in over 350 enzyme reactions. 


Think magnesium deficiency might be an issue for you? Come in to Rejuvé for vitamin testing with Dr. Tang. Typical blood tests for magnesium levels like the standard magnesium serum test can be inaccurate, and tend to underestimate deficiencies for patients who would actually benefit from supplementation. We can provide you with the RBC Magnesium test, which boasts greater accuracy. 


All of that said, supplementing with magnesium can be tricky. The stabilizing molecule attached to magnesium can cause loose stools if you take too much, or the wrong form. Dr. Tang recommends taking magnesium glycinate or malate as opposed to magnesium oxide, which is what's most commonly found in supplements. Our pick for a magnesium booster is Mag Complete, which comes in easy-to-take capsules. 


Want to check your vitamin levels and find out whether your supplementation is working? Call Rejuvé today at 408-740-5320 to make an appointment for a consultation.

Electrolyte Synergy


It's important to stay hydrated, especially if you're active. You might be tempted to turn to a sports drink like Gatorade, but though these boast about their electrolyte levels, they aren't actually formulated so that your body can actually absorb the electrolytes. 

Instead of buying a sports drink at the grocery store, we recommend Electrolyte Synergy. This powder can be stirred into any beverage, or even mixed with water and frozen to make popsicles! The complete and balanced electrolyte formula in Electrolyte Synergy helps promote optimal hydration, especially after you've worked up a sweat. 


In addition to the electrolytes potassium, sodium, chloride and magnesium, Electrolyte Synergy also has D-ribose to help with healthy cardiac function, exercise recovery and energy production. Taurine is part of the mix too, as a regulator of cellular electrolyte flow. And don't worry about a chalky or powdery taste -- Electrolyte Synergy has a natural lemon flavor. It gets its sweetness without sugar, from the natural herb stevia. In all, it's a perfect pick for supporting a healthy, active lifestyle.
