While Inflammation is necessary, it inhibits training progress, as it temporarily limits muscle function due to increased muscle soreness and stiffness. Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator contains turmeric—with active compound curcumin—used in traditional herbal medicine to help reduce inflammation.14ESCOP (2003): ESCOP Monographs: The Scientific Foundation for Herbal Medicinal Products, 2nd edition.
