Incorporating Hemp Extract into Your Fitness Routine

How to help your body benefit from hemp extract

It’s a great time of year to get new routines started and be a little better to your body than you were last year. So many people set new fitness goals in the beginning of a new year, but whether you’re hitting the gym for the first time in a while or maintaining the tried-and-true regiments you’ve been doing for ages, High Peaks offers high-quality hemp extract products which may give your body the aid it needs for more energy, easier recovery, and better fitness results.

You can learn all about hemp extract, CBD (cannabidiol), CBG (cannabigerol), CBN (cannabinol), how and why they all work within your body by checking out our blogs in our Science section on our website.

Hemp Extract and Fitness

Protein bars and active people have gone hand-in-hand for years. This is because protein bars offer easy ways for people on the go to have an easy, healthy, and protein-packed snack at any time.

Protein is important for us to consume daily because our bodies don’t store protein. While the amounts of protein needed vary per person depending on things like age and lifestyle, we all need protein to regulate many of our body’s chemicals like hormones and enzymes. Protein also builds and repairs tissue, which is just one of the reasons why it’s great for active people to make sure they have in their system.

So if you’re an active person, you probably already enjoy protein bars before, during, or after your workout regiments. High Peaks offers two flavors of protein bars: peanut butter chocolate and cookie dough.

Both of High Peaks’ protein bars contain plant-derived protein (six grams of it) and twenty milligrams of full-spectrum hemp extract. Full-spectrum hemp extract means that the hemp contains more than just CBD. It has several other hemp plant extracts, such as essential oils and terpenes. All these goodies work together with your endocannabinoid system and may help your body recover faster and better after a workout.

Studies have shown that CBD may help reduce muscle inflammation, which in turn would help your body recover from an active day or a workout. Introducing a High Peaks protein bar after you work out gives your body a dose of protein, which we know helps our bodies, and CBD, which may give your body a hand in reducing the inflammation that comes with physical activity.

High Peaks recommends eating your protein bar after a workout if your intention is to reduce muscle inflammation. This optimizes potential impacts of the protein bar.

What’s more is that both of the flavors of High Peaks’ protein bars contain only nine ingredients and are less than 200 calories. That makes these a tasty, uncomplicated, healthy snack that won’t undo the work you just put in.

Muscle Soreness

You can take your health routine a step further with the High Peaks Formula and Hemp Extract Pain Management Spray. This ‘relief in a can’ aims to treat inflammation and pain from the outside in.

The can contains roughly 150 sprays of a cooling, calming, formula that you can apply on sore muscles after a workout. And while the protein bars may be working inside you to reduce inflammation, this topical spray aims to work from your skin inwards. The cool thing about this product is that you can target the exact area where you need relief. So if you had a leg day, you can use this spray to focus in on only your legs, giving them a spray to help them relax and recover.

Like the protein bars, High Peaks recommends using this spray after your workout. In this case, you get to listen to your body and apply the spray exactly where you feel pain.

Finding Your Fitness Peak

No matter what your fitness goals are, High Peaks’ protein bars and pain spray may be helpful tools for you to achieve them. The protein bars may be helpful from the inside, giving your body well-earned and needed plant-based protein with full-spectrum hemp extract to potentially reduce muscle and joint inflammation caused by your workout. Combining that with the pain spray, which can target specific areas of soreness, could be just what you need to take your wellness and fitness to the next level in 2022.
