FROM THE SHOULDERS UP™

HELP US STOP THE NEGLECT OF BRAIN HEALTH IN SPORT AND EQUIP ATHLETES TO BETTER PROTECT THEMSELVES

Join Cellular FitnessTM and athletes from football, rugby, MMA, boxing, kickboxing, ice hockey, NFL, cycling, and more, to make a lasting change in sport by focusing on the importance of brain health, hydration, and injury mitigation.

There is so much focus in sport on strength, performance, and stamina; we worry about physical injury and limitations. But that’s only one part of achieving our potential and preventing injury. We forget about what’s going on From The Shoulders UpTM. Actually, many of us are guilty of neglecting it, and so is the sports industry. We introduced groin protectors before helmets in cricket; we use faster footballs that impact with greater force; it’s never been top of the agenda. And yet, the brain is our most important performance organ in sport: nothing else works without it. We don’t think enough about the importance of complete brain hydration, and how it affects cognitive function whilst also providing cushioning to the brain and body.

The best way to protect the brain is to keep it hydrated. A dehydrated brain struggles to think quickly, recognize and react to risk, but most importantly it leaves athletes with less cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) around the brain. CSF is the watery fluid that irrigates and surrounds the brain and spinal cord; it acts as a fluid buffer for the protection of the nervous tissues whilst also being secondary to the skull for protection of the brain.

Furthermore, when your brain is not supported, and you have high physical demands on your body, this can negatively impact your performance and recovery which increases your likelihood of developing overtraining syndrome. Overtraining syndrome is a form of burnout that strikes athletes in various types of endurance sports and is characterized by inexplicable performance drop, extreme mental and physical exhaustion, and cognitive decline in the absence of apparent injury.

We don’t think enough about what essential nutrients are needed for focus, concentration, and long-term brain health. And yet, it has an enormous impact on our health and performance both now, and in the future. Too often, it takes something to happen to make us stop and pay attention.

We’re calling on everyone in the sports community to stop neglecting brain health, stop waiting until it’s too late, and start thinking more about hydration and protection From The Shoulders Up™. Sport brings us so much, it brings us focus, direction, and lifelong connections. Sport has the power to change the world and the lives of individuals. But we must learn more, understand more, hydrate more, and mitigate more. Now is the time for a change. Help make a difference for this generation, and for the next.

Why Cellular Fitness?

Cellular FitnessTM are working with research teams’ worldwide, with the main focus being on cellular longevity, cellular hydration, cellular transportation, cellular communication, cellular absorption, cellular excretion and over all cell function. With our in-depth knowledge we have developed the world only, unique protocol for athletes which is called Cellular FitnessTM.  This protocol specialises in everything to do with the cell so every athlete can enhance their performance, recovery and repair whilst protecting their brain and body.

HYDRATE 78 + HYDRATE 78 NIGHT + ESSENTIAL FATS = CELLULAR FITNESSTM

The combination of these essential nutrients supports complete hydration. When you are hydrated at a cellular level this improves levels of cerebrospinal fluid which provides cushions for the brain during impact. Not only this but hydration, also affects brain cell function and communication which impacts performance.
