Introducing the new Ardoa CrossPro CBD Recovery Cream!
There are more than a thousand CBD products on the market, and there are another thousand more for athletes. However, despite fancy packaging and celebrity endorsements, not all of them provide you with clear results. That’s the true test of a good product, and in reality, this is where the focus should be.
We have taken care to put our focus on an end result with CrossPro Topical. We have taken 100% natural ingredients to create a powerful mix for the everyday athletes, even up to elite level competitors. Training, exercise and conditioning can take a toll on your muscles, joints and ligaments. It is therefore important that you have something that not only provides pain relief but aids recovery as well. This is where our CrossPro CBD cream comes into play.
You as an athlete always care about getting better and we want to help you do just that. And we do it without any synthetic perfumes, harsh chemicals or toxic additives!
After trying CrossPro CBD cream, you’ll know what the hype is about! But let’s talk about the fantastic ingredients that make this the perfect topical for you as an athlete!
If you haven’t heard of CBD, here’s a little run down: Your body naturally contains what is called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), and these cannabinoids [like CBD, CBN or even THC] can be found in the hemp plant. They all can be isolated for multiple uses and when the receptors of the ECS are activated, a cascade of effects [called The Entourage Effect] can occur. These beneficial effects can include the lowering of inflammation, antioxidant activity, serotonin regulation, and relaxation. All of which go into recovering from physical activity and lowering any pain that is associated.
Hemp Seed Oil:
You may be here because of the hero ingredient CBD, but other parts of the hemp plant are useful too! Although hemp seed oil contains no cannabinoids, it does contain all 21 amino acids, a perfect Omega 3:6 ratio and vitamin E, carotene, phytosterols, phospholipids, sulphur, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc! All of which make this plant high in antioxidant activity, anti-inflammatory, non-comedogenic (will not clog pores), and suitable for literally any skin type. Having this component of the plant creates the perfect pairing for optimum results, especially in the topical form!
The Perfect Aid for Athletes
As an athlete, you need to feel your best so that you can perform your best. You also need to recover at a high rate to adapt and get better. Without fast and proper recovery, your training can catch up to you, which can make things a little difficult. This is where you can use CrossPro cream to your advantage.
Your ECS is all about keeping balance, so having the right product to activate it can help to balance out inflammation in the joints, muscles and tendons. Inflammation is often the cause of most pain in relation to physical activity. With too much inflammation, you can’t properly recover, which then eventually leads to overtraining or even injury.
In regard to pain, CBD will also help to activate serotonin and vanilloid receptors which both play a key role in pain transmission and regulation. This will help you to push farther and harder than you were previously able to do.
Having the right product to lower your levels of inflammation and promote the healing process can take your performance to the next level.
So, what else makes this the right product for an athlete?
Thanks to a number of hemp terpenes and menthol serving as permeation enhancers, the cream can get deep into those layers of the skin and reach your muscles or joints fast. This allows for a potent effect on those areas of the body that you may not have experienced with other products. As if that wasn’t enough, our CrossPro CBD cream contains extra ingredients that have additional potent effects on muscles and joints.
This is perhaps the most famous natural ingredient used to ease aches and bruising. As a result, there are a number of studies that have investigated and confirmed its efficacy.
One study looked at the effect of topical arnica gel application on osteoarthritis patients. After 3 and 6 weeks of twice daily application, participants experience significant reduction in pain and stiffness. In a later study osteoarthritis patients found, after 21 days of testing in a double-blind placebo trial, that ibuprofen (5%) and arnica (50 g tincture/100 g) as gel preparations produced the same results.
Centella Asiatica (Tiger Grass)
This herbaceous perennial plant has been used for over 3000 years in both traditional Indian and Chinese medicine for a swathe of ailments. In more recent times, there has been amazing research into the main components of the plant on neurological diseases, endocrine diseases, skin diseases, cardiovascular diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, immune diseases, and gynaecological diseases.
One 2020 review of its therapeutic potential showed that it appears to have ‘extensive beneficial effects on neurological and skin diseases’ as confirmed through clinical studies. These include anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative stress, anti-apoptotic effects and even improvement in mitochondrial function.
Healthy skin matters for athletes too!
As an athlete, you may not pay too much attention specifically to your skin but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep it healthy. Interestingly enough, you have an Endocannabinoid System for your skin too! So, the CBD making contact with your skin is having a direct impact on improving its protective abilities. Using the CBD cream, you’ll keep out more microbes, UV rays, free radicals and pollution!
In addition to the CBD, there is the hemp seed oil which contains numerous nutrients that help to improve the quality, elasticity, and firmness of your skin.
And there’s even more natural ingredients for amazing skin:
Shea, Jojoba, Apricot, Aloe Vera, Hyaluronic Acid, Beta-glucans.
The CrossFit cream has a rich base, formulated using some of the most densely nutritious and moisturising ingredients the world has to offer. All of the above are bursting with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and tannins, for intense hydration, repair and detoxing actions.
Grapevine, Centella Asiatica, Horsetail, Dandelion, Arnica.
As our cream is designed to target both on the surface and internally, as it permeates through the skin, having a raft of potent anti-inflammatories and antioxidants was a must. We have included these six ingredients largely for this purpose. In addition, The World Health Organisation has referred to Centella Asiatica for its traditional use in treating wounds and burns to prevent poor healing, while horsetail and dandelion are well documented for their cell-regeneration and arnica as a remedy for bruising or trauma.
Vitamins E, C, Peptides
Alongside the densely nutritious hemp seed oil used to partly make up the base of our product, we’ve included an extra boost of Vitamin E, C and peptides. Peptides and vitamin C increase the synthesis of proteins such as collagen, keratin and elastin, while vitamin E helps to keep dry skin hydrated.
Essential Oils like Peppermint, Ginger, Lavender, Geranium, Cinnamomum Camphora, Menthol and Mint are all key components to our topical cream.
Our proprietary blend of essential oils not only smells wonderful (and you won’t find any synthetic fragrance here!), but each oil selected is a key player in the overall benefits of our cream.
Anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-microbial, anti-septic, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties are well noted. Alongside this we also have analgesic actions, particularly in ginger, which reduces prostaglandins, responsible for activating pain processes caused by inflammation.
You won’t find anything in the CrossPro cream that isn’t listed here and, more importantly, that wasn’t meticulously selected to deliver the results your body needs – inside and out.
