Evidence suggests its anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory effects contribute to better athletic output By Gail Johnson - June 9, 2020
Having played 15 seasons in the NHL, Mike Cammalleri describes his time in professional sports as a dream come true. It was also a gruelling career, with lots of 3 a.m. flights, an intense training regimen, and injuries.
