Surfing the Wobenzym Wave

Posted by: Rhonda Price on Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Laird Hamilton -- big wave surfer, model, and author -- is making waves in and out of the water lately, as we’re seeing him all over the place in magazines and on television. What’s Laird got to say that keeps the presses hot? For starters, that Garden of Life’s Wobenzym N supplement for inflammation and joint health helps him relieve the soreness that comes with shredding monster waves up to 70 feet high!

In our current issue of Extraordinary Health Magazine, Laird rolled out a laundry list of numerous injuries he’s received while chasing giant waves. The list includes everything from broken ear drums to crushed vertebrae. He’s broken his left ankle six times and stopped counting stitches after the total number exceeded 1,000!

In Extraordinary Health Magazine and in a recent issue of Men’s Journal, Laird said that after taking a beating from Mother Nature, he relies on Wobenzym N’s unique formula of systemic enzymes to help with the healing process.

“Wobenzym is an amazing natural product,” he says. “[Its] ingredients work synergistically with the body to help break down harmful proteins that cause inflammation.”

Laird knows what he’s talking about. Wobenzym N promotes a natural inflammation response, but the supplement benefits the body in other ways as well. Wobenzym N helps increase flexibility and mobility, supports joint and tendon health, and provides temporary relief from everyday aches, pains, and muscle soreness. The dietary supplement has been hugely popular in Europe for over 40 years, first hitting the shelves in Germany during the 1960’s. Since then, more than 29 million people throughout Europe have tried the product, placing Wobenzym N among the most successful natural supplements ever released.

Of course we were excited to feature Laird and his family in Extraordinary Health, but we’ve also seen him recently on Oprah’s Master Class: Life Lessons on the OWN Network and in a recent  Men’s Journal article titled, “Live Longer, Perform Better” as well. In a nutshell, Laird’s philosophy on living an active and healthy life is:
1. Make it fun
2. Emphasize what you can eat – not what you can’t
3. You’re going to be sore, but don’t wallow in it
4. Don’t go it alone
All good advice, plus the fact that whether you are surfing gigantic waves or tackling the roller coaster challenges of everyday life, don’t forget Wobenzym!

They look like a normal, wholesome, All-American family -- minus the odd looking gigantic pig in the photo! I guess you can't expect someone like Laird Hamilton to have a poodle.

"Emphasize what you can eat – not what you can’t."

This is one amazing piece of advice that I am pulling from this article. I love it. It's too often that people attempt a healthy lifestyle but focus on all of the foods that they shouldn't be eating. Instead, people need to recognize all of the AMAZING foods that they can use to fuel their bodies.

Great inspiration. It's actually inspired a blog post of my own for the week. ;)

I have been reading some of your posts about Laird and some of your early facts are not correct. I know several people who knew him and his upbringing both in Hawaii and on the mainland. It was not quite the way you reported it. He had allot of help from many people, one in particular that gave him the opportunity to start his career. Laird is truly a world class athlete and everyone can agree on that. His contributions to the sport of surfing and his accomplishments as a waterman have not been matched.

Thank you for your comment Joanna. We definitely agree that Laird is a world class athlete, and while he may have had many people give him opportunities to start his career, these people were not mentioned when we interviewed him.

Also, in our fact checking efforts, Laird did not mention that any facts were incorrect.
