Olympic fever has taken over all across the world, we’re all thinking about how we can be exercising our bodies in the best possible ways and alongside that — how we can look after our bodies.
Reakiro’s Smart Restart line is dedicated to encouraging natural recovery and healing before, during, and after sporting activities.
«I would like to thank and congratulate the Reakiro product development team on launching such excellent products that reinforce and support the commitment to our customers to supply only the highest quality natural product solutions. Feedback has been extremely positive and we are confident that both the foot cream and muscle relief gels will be amongst the most popular in our portfolio» said Stuart McKenzie, CEO of Reakiro.
When training, how you recover from pushing your body to the limit is a crucial factor in your sports development. If athletes don’t provide themselves with the adequate attention and care, their bodies can become injured and tired.
To help avoid this scenario for many sportspeople, the Smart Restart line has just extended with two new formulations: CBD Foot Cream and CBD Muscle Relief Balm.
Regardless of the sport, it will require being on one’s feet. In addition to this, having sore, tired, aching feet can ruin just about any activity, and it can certainly knock you off your game. Smart Restart foot cream is formulated to soothe and protect tired feet which have been encased in the four walls of training shoes for slightly too long.
CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties work to target the source of any foot related pain, while this cream is filled with hydrating and nourishing benefits.
Warming up and cooling down are amongst the most effective ways of insuring a muscle injury is not inflicted during a training session. However, sometimes this isn’t enough. Unfortunately, you cannot always be worrying about whether you’re going to pull or strain a muscle, you need to focus on your performance. But when these moments do come along, it is a number one priority that the athlete gives time and care for the injury (no matter how minor) to recover.
Using Smart Restart muscle relief balm and the active ingredient of CBD allows the source of muscle pain to be targetted and soothed from the transdermal application. The better a muscle recovers, the stronger it can be in the future.
Reakiro’s entire Smart Restart line contains 0% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), making it a highly attractive solution for athletes and all those participating in sporting events. THC is one of over a hundred cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant family. While it is a legal requirement in most European countries for THC levels to be below 0.2%, this is still a high enough level to trigger a positive drug test. Consequently, those using CBD alongside their sports training will need to find a product with 0% THC levels. In accordance with article 4.2.2 of the world anti-doping code, Cannabidiol (CBD) is no longer prohibited for professional athletes.
All Reakiro Smart Restart products are tested in independent third party laboratories for the presence of pesticides, heavy metals and debris — as well as measuring the purity and cannabinoid levels. This guarantees that there is no detectable THC in the products.
Football players, ice hockey players, golfers and beyond are using CBD as a natural supplement and ingredient incorporated into their training programme. Football champion and olympic medalist Megan Rapinoe Megan Rapinoe described her draw to CBD as wanting “a healthier, more natural option for pain management, sleep aid, relaxation while flying, and general recovery.”
