We just did a giveaway a couple days ago. We always got new giveaways coming on social, let you guys know about new products and show you guys exclusive deals you can only find here. In today's video, we're going to be talking about Jeff's recovery stack. Jeff wound up getting a shoulder injury during a bar fight and has been recovering the past couple weeks and has some supplements that have kind of sped along the recovery bit. I think you said your physical therapist said you're recovering a lot faster than he expected.

Jeff: (00:40)
Yeah. So, I haven't done any videos for quite some time. I suffered a AC joint separation in my shoulder. This one here may notice droops down a little bit.

John: (00:53)
Is that title belt holder in jail from what he did to you?

Jeff: (00:56)
I know. I know. I know. Yes. So, I didn't get this from lifting or a bar fight. It was a competitive kickball tournament that I got it from, so you can make fun of me all you want. But took a spill, landed right on the tip of my shoulder, the joint that's right here, tore it completely. I think there are a few more fibers left, to the point where I didn't need surgery. It was almost surgically needed, but the orthopedic doctor said, "If you go through physical therapy, take some supplements, watch your nutrition and all that. You should be able to heal up." So, it's been about seven weeks. They estimated that I wouldn't be able to lift for about three months. I've been able to lift for about two weeks now, I would say. So, the things that... I'm still not a hundred percent on shoulder presses, chest, those are probably two things I'm about 50% on, but arms, back, especially the legs, I've done more legs than I've ever had my entire life, but those are completely back. So, I'm [inaudible 00:02:09].

John: (02:08)
Well, you we've even seen you went from struggling to use your mouse on a computer to you were lifting back in Seattle a couple weeks ago.

Jeff: (02:16)
Yeah, exactly. Do not separate your AC joint. It is terrible because you cannot do anything. I can finally do that. I love it. But for the people that are going through injuries, maybe not as severe as AC joint separation or maybe even worse, I wanted to give you some products that I take that I started taking immediately when this happened. Some of these were recommendations from the orthopedic doctor and the physical therapist. And then one was just one that I've taken before for recovery and rejuvenation and I added it to the stack. So, the first one, which some of us take here is collagen. Now, I think a lot of people that think about collagen, they think hair, skin, nails. Yes. So, there's different types of collagen and Ancient Nutrition's Bone Broth Protein actually has the collagen type two and it's got a hefty dose of it. And the collagen type two is the one for joints and for ligament repair.

John: (03:14)
Like you said, some of the other collagens are more for the hair, skin and nails, but this one's specifically for joints and connective tissues.

Jeff: (03:20)
Exactly. Exactly. So, when you're looking for collagen and you have an injury, you want to look for collagen type two. Some of them are blends, which is okay, but if it doesn't have the type two, skip that collagen. This stuff actually doesn't taste that bad either. I was worried.

John: (03:37)
The Ancient Nutrition has a real loyal following. Great, great products.

Jeff: (03:41)
I'm used to the tasty protein, but I wanted it to heal, so I started with that and I took one scoop a day. The next one is Super Cissus. And have you ever taken this before?

John: (03:53)
I have not taken that one, but that one's a really popular one.

Jeff: (03:56)
Yeah, exactly. So, this is another one. In the past, I've taken it during the fall or winter, when it gets cold and your joints start hurting. But this is a great product that helps promote not only ligament, cartilage repair, but bone and muscle repair as well. All things that I've had a problem with. So, this is a product I've been taking since the beginning as well. One of these bottles lasts, I think around 30 days. I'm about halfway through my first bottle. But USP Labs Super Cissus, it's the best dose I could find, and that's why I took that one. The last one, which is a more expensive one was by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, Pro IGF-1. Now, I haven't taken this one before.

John: (04:40)
You know what? I have taken the remnants of a bottle that I found in the office.

Jeff: (04:45)
It's pretty pricey.

John: (04:46)

Jeff: (04:46)
It is. But it's a great product. In the past I've used it for lean muscle when I didn't want to be on a prohormone or anything like that. But there is a lot of research behind... This product increases IGF-1 levels, and there's a lot of research behind it that it does help with cartilage repair, joint repair and overall just improving injuries.

John: (05:08)
Now, would Protropin be something that someone could take as well for injuries?

Jeff: (05:13)
Yes, you can add Protropin. Unfortunately, I have a budget and taking all these does get expensive. So, if you do have more money left over, it's more serious and you want to bust through this injury as quickly as possible, you could stack it with the Protropin. But the Pro IGF, I was taking in the mornings when I wasn't working out, and the days I was, which was mainly legs for a month.

John: (05:41)
You were loving those leg workouts.

Jeff: (05:44)
I do enjoy it more now, I can tell you that. But I took about five tablets of these right before my workout. So, one bottle lasts you 50 days, so the price isn't too bad.

John: (05:55)
Yeah. It's a little bit pricey, but yeah, it's almost two months worth of supply.

Jeff: (05:59)
Exactly. So again, those are the three products I took to help me get back to repairing my injury. The other thing though was I went to physical therapy two to three days a week, so that had a drastic improvement on things as well. So again, I'm six to seven weeks in. I'm hoping to be fully done in a month or something.

John: (06:19)
That'd be good.

Jeff: (06:20)
So, I think, Maddie over here has us playing volleyball and I need to spike it. But yeah. So, we're going to add probably a stack, so if people want to purchase it.

John: (06:29)
Yeah, we'll put the stack together on a website.

Jeff: (06:30)
Yeah. So, we'll link to these three products that you can purchase together. Again, if you got an injury, this is something great to try and hopefully it gets you back into the gym a lot quicker. But yeah, if you have any questions for me or John, or if you want to know anything else I took or how to take these correctly, just post them in, I guess, the comments below.
