Injuries, whether to soft tissues or to the bones in the ankle, require certain nutrients to heal quickly and to heal completely. From the outset of ankle injury, the body experiences first the inflammatory phase, complete with swelling and heat, the proliferative phase, where the scar is developing, and finally, the remodeling phase where the tissue regains its strength. During each phase, specific nutrients can enhance the healing process and expedite return to play.

For my 53 yr old male friend who plays soccer and injures his ligaments often, I have listed the following supplements for protection and healing. Please eat more fish, yellow foods or sulfur containing foods such as garlic, onions, greens and Vit C rich foods (berries, papaya, pineapples). Since you are prone to allergies and eye problems, also take Vit C, digestive enzymes, zinc, Vit B, coconut water or aloe vera juice, potassium for adrenal function and Vit E.

And most important, warm-up with a dance or brisk walk before heavy soccer play and stretch after.
