CBD is a Game Changer
Not only is Cannabidiol (CBD) proving to be exactly the health-enhancing supplement that athletes have been looking for, but it's also much safer than other products in American medicine cabinets. Neuro Armour products are formulated with a passion for nutrition and healing. Pushing it in the gym comes with a price, and every day across the country, CBD is changing the way that athletes think about recovery.
CBD oils are rich in Omega-chain fatty acids like Omega-3 and Omega-6, zinc, calcium, magnesium, iron, and more. Additionally, Neuro Armour CBD products contain IsoTerp ᴹ contains a number of terpenes amino acid-like substances which provide simple biochemical compounds useful for many metabolic processes. Dr. Allan Frankel, a renowned doctor of internal medicine in Los Angeles, suggested that CBD will cut appetite in those who overeat and it will stimulate appetite in those who need to eat more, because it promotes cell homeostasis.
Clinical studies have demonstrated again and again that CBD has qualities which impact general health and disease-specific symptoms. The very fact of using a plant-based elixir that alleviates certain physical and emotional symptoms with very mild side effects, if any, can be significant enough to transform our entire workout. We have seen this transformation in action, sometimes with profound and inspiring results. CBD interacts with CB1 and CB2 receptors in the body, in a way that improves cell health, cellular metabolism, and energy utilization. The details of CBD pharmacology will be the subject of much Neuro Armour web content in the future. Forthcoming cannabinoid science is exhilarating, as we are learning more about the intricate mechanisms at work behind the whole-body healing of CBD products.

Reduces Pain and Inflammation
Muscle and joint pain are the all-too-common byproducts of an active lifestyle. The old paradigm is that we work hard, tackle hard, and pay the price later. CBD products have spectacular anti-inflammatory benefits which can alleviate pain and significantly reduce recovery times. Neuro Armour has created products which can be ingested orally, topically, or vaporized to relieve muscle pain.
Neuro Armour CBD replaces that old paradigm with an altogether new way of looking at recovery: work hard, tackle hard, and recover quickly.
Unfortunately for some, addiction and athletics have a cyclical relationship. All too often self-medication is a huge temptation for recovering athletes. Pharmaceuticals, alcohol, and hard drugs can give a temporary escape from pain, but often with grim side effects.
We are unlikely to find simple answers for true addictions. Unfortunately it can lead to living a reality you might have never imagined for yourself. Addiction is complicated, so recovery requires a variety of strategies. CBD is a potentially exciting new treatment option for those who suffer from addiction.
In a newly published study, CBD was shown to effectively halt the reward mechanism in cell receptors of opiate users. The content of this study may prove to be tremendously important one day. The study simply concluded: "The fact of CBD effectively halting the reward mechanism associated with opioid reward suggests that this compound may be useful in addiction treatment settings."
Another recent study found that of 2,400 daily CBD users that were polled, roughly 42% of them had stopped taking pharmaceuticals altogether, and those who were still using pharmaceuticals had by and large reduced the daily amount. The opiate epidemic is a crisis in our country, and making CBD widely available has potential to make a real difference. We believe that the leadership of the United States has a pressing responsibility to alleviate the devastation of this epidemic. CBD is non-psychoactive, and any side benefits are completely benign. It needs to be in every gym, every health food store, and every doctor's office in the country.
CBD has been shown to be extremely helpful for alcohol withdrawal, and what is called “seeking behavior” for those with powerful addictions. CBD’s status as a neuroprotectant means that it activates the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in our bodies, and nourishes a therapeutic and regenerative web of connective tissues. Stable ECS cells are less prone to the pangs of addiction that cause discomfort.
Adequate sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle that can benefit your heart, weight, mind, and more. The ECS in your body fulfills a number of important functions, and because it spreads throughout the brain, the chest, the organs, and the limbs, it generates a widespread feeling of calm and peace which can promote relaxation and healthy sleep. The unique biochemical profile of CBD and other cannabinoids is perfectly tailored to our bodies, and easily metabolized. Adding CBD to your sleep routine can help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and feel vital and refreshed in the morning.
