Recovery is a hot topic. Recovery from exercise, illness and maybe even…. Lockdown? While we can’t promise that CBD will help ease us out of a year of lockdown, our friends at MEDAHUMAN are here to tell you how CBD can help improve recovery when it comes to exercise, inflammation and sleep. CBD has the power to speed up recovery thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.
MEDAHUMAN’s range of targeted functional wellness drinks contain nutrients, adaptogens, nootropics and best-in-class CBD. MEDAHUMAN’s drinks are created with purpose, crafted with all-natural ingredients for targeted functional nutrition. Each drink contains 15mg of premium broad-spectrum CBD to create the desired effect.
Read on for a number of reasons behind why CBD should be your first choice when it comes to an active and speedy recovery.
CBD is Anti-Inflammatory
It is a natural anti-inflammatory, helping muscles to heal faster. It is also recognized for its role in chronic pain improvement and anxiety management (2).
CBD is available in many different forms, some find edibles (such as oral oil or MEDAHUMAN’s CBD wellness drinks) work best, while others find topical products (body creams) more effective.
We all know exercise is good for us. It supports energy production, confidence, weight management, cardiovascular health and mood. But some forms of high intensity exercise can actually damage your muscles, no matter your fitness level. This damage can trigger inflammatory processes in the body and lead to pain and swelling. Research indicates that CBD may play a role in reducing inflammation associated with pain while also supporting mobility, thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidative effects (1,7).
If you are finding your recovery time is getting in the way of your fitness goals, you may want to consider introducing CBD into your post-workout routine.
Studies report that CBD may promote sleep, which is the optimal time for muscle recovery to take place (8). While sleeping the body produces melatonin, a human growth hormone, which helps muscle recovery. If you’re lacking a good quality night’s sleep due to post-workout pain, anxiety, caffeine consumption, jet lag, or stress, your muscles will struggle to fully recover.
Consider drinking MEDAHUMAN Sleep, a botanical blend of CBD, valerian root and cherry.
Synergistic Herbs for Recovery
Ginger and turmeric are two ingredients that have been shown to help reduce pain and protect against disease due to their mighty anti-inflammatory properties. Research has shown that turmeric may be as effective as taking anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen(3), whilst Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric could also help decrease pain caused by conditions such as arthritis (5).
Both ginger and turmeric are a powerhouse when it comes to anti-inflammatory qualities, and with MEDAHUMAN’s Recover drink combining the two with high quality CBD, it is a recovery dream.
If you are currently taking any medication, pregnant, breastfeeding or dealing with a chronic medical condition, please check in with your doctor before taking any supplements.
