CBD & Bioavailability

CBD oils and lotions and vaping, oh my! Here’s why water-soluble CBD is your best bet at higher bioavailability. Curious what the bioavailability of water-soluble CBD is versus its consumable counterparts? We’ll tell you. We get it, the term ‘bioavailability’ sounds confusing. But, basically, it just refers to how much …

CBD: The Dream Ingredient For Athletes in Recovery

 

There are carefully selected ingredients to maximize an active recovery post workout and WillPower is proud we’ve mastered the recipe.

Let us teach you why CBD is any active person’s dream ingredient for an optimized recovery.

 

It was leg day and you pushed yourself hard. You lunged deep and squatted heavy. With every rep you took your quads and glutes burned that much more. You teetered on the verge of exhaustion but you didn’t give up – you finished that last set hard and now you’re ready to reap the benefits. After all, you didn’t commit yourself to that hamstring curl for nothing – you want muscle growth, and you want it ASAP.

Which, is why you’re not about to flake on your recovery protocol. As any great athlete knows, muscle growth begins the moment you stop lifting. During your workout, after you lifted heavy, your muscles suffered from micro-tears, and were actually broken down through catabolism. Now that you’ve concluded your workout, your body will need help repairing.

If you want to get the most from each and every workout, you need to prioritize post-workout recovery, which starts by feeding your muscles the fuel to grow and improve. We’ve made it our mission here at WillPower to provide the highest quality sports and fitness dietary supplements on the market.

 

Unlike most sports supplements out there, we’ve tried something a little different.

 

It’s no secret the natural and fully legalized hemp plant is undoubtedly jam packed with minerals, vitamins, and essential fatty acids that are essential to a healthy recovery. CBD, a cannabinoid found in hemp, is the primary compound that we are focused on for its profound benefits. So, the founders at WillPower leveraged the natural advantages of cannabinoids by creating a special formula using water-soluble CBD in our products.

The best part? WillPower’s CBD doesn’t have to go through your digestive system in order for your body to access its nutrients. Because our CBD is in a water-soluble form, it can absorb into the interior lining of your stomach, directly reaching the bloodstream. This means your body gets to benefit from nearly 100% of the effective ingredients. Instead of leveraging a small fraction (typically 15-20%) of the nutrients from CBD like our competitor’s CBD brands offer, since they’re oil based.

The rapid absorption rate that our whey protein offers is ideal after a grueling workout session. By investing in a quality product, like ReGenPCR, you’ll really be able to see a difference. At WillPower, we use a broad spectrum CBD, meaning we’ve put it through a chromatography process in order to remove the THC while compromising the other cannabinoids as little as possible.

 

 

What exactly are the ingredients in WillPower’s ReGenPCR grass fed whey protein + cannabinoid formula that aid in optimizing recovery?

We’re glad you asked. Let’s break down some of our most potent ingredients for you, and why our formula was designed with active customers in mind.

  • WillPower sources its grass-fed protein, which supports lean muscle and recovery, from dairy farms in Northern California that have had a 100% grass-fed diet.
  • Many fitness nutritionists in the industry recommend a healthy dosage of potassium post exercise, this is because your potassium reserves are predominantly zapped after an intense workout. Potassium is a vital nutrient, which aids in muscular energy. There’s 256 mg of potassium in one scoop of our delicious whey protein powders.
  • Alongside potassium, WillPower focuses on key minerals like calcium and phosphorus to enhance muscle growth and repair. There’s 94 mg of calcium and 96 mg of phosphorus per scoop.
  • Muscle tissue repair occurs the quickest with the digestion of essential fatty acids (EFA’s for short). Our bodies are unable to manufacture certain fatty acids on its own, and instead, we must rely on a healthy diet. Fatty acids are so important for rapid recovery.You’ve probably heard of Omega-3, the most desired fatty acid for bodybuilders, due to its tissue and joint re-building properties. WillPower’s ReGenPCR offers 500 mg of flaxseed powder, which, in turn, will keep your joints strong and lubricated.

The industrial hemp plant, while comprised of over 150 cannabinoids, CBD being our main focus, is jam packed with essential fatty acids that our body doesn’t naturally produce on its own. When the components of CBD interact with your neurotransmitters they’ll boost your body’s production of natural cannabinoids. If you’re someone who frequently experiences sore muscles after an intense workout, you’ll benefit from the anti-inflammatory properties in CBD.

  • Branch Chain Amino Acids or BCAA’s. WillPower offers 6 g of the muscle repair compounds using:
  1. Leucine, which boosts protein synthesis, builds and repairs muscle, and regulates blood sugar.
  2. Isoleucine, which enables energy to be stored in muscle cells rather than fat cells by regulating glucose uptake.
  3. Valine, which improves mental functioning, reduces fatigue and prevents muscle breakdown.
  • Lastly and most importantly, WillPower’s whey protein powder includes 100 mg of PCR hemp oil extract in one scoop, which is packed with active recovery properties.

Curious how CBD, specifically, aids in recovery? We’ll tell you.

  • CBD has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-pain properties that make it every athlete’s dream ingredient.
  • Speeds up your recovery time.
  • Alleviates pain.
  • Relaxes your muscles.
  • Decreases nausea.
  • Reduces muscle spasms thanks to the antispasmodic properties in cannabinoids.
  • Protection of your heart, lungs, and brain.

WillPower’s proprietary formula using Phytocannabinoid rich hemp oil extract is the only thing standing between you and the body of your dreams. Ready to leap into the newest fitness trend and optimize your recovery? Try one of our protein powders – you’ll love our Cinnamon Cocoa flavor for a protein shake that tastes sinfully delicious, or our Vanilla, which we recommend mixing with your favorite fruits and berries.

 

Because, looking good should taste good, too. WillPower products help you Finish Strong!
