Replenishing Lost Electrolytes
Everyone knows the best way to quench your thirst after a hard workout is a sports drink to replenish those lost electrolytes. Grocery store aisles are littered with neon-colored, sugar-laden beverages that promise to replenish all the nutrients your body needs. Take a look at the ponderous ingredient list on most of those pre-packaged sports drinks and you’ll find sucrose syrup, glucose-fructose syrup, red dye 40 and blue dye 1. Yikes! The good news is you can replenish everything you body needs without a bushel of sugar or a heap of chemical ingredients. Read on for Brothers Essential CBD Honey Sports Recovery Drink.
The Base: Green Tea, Water & Coconut Water
The base of our all-natural sports recovery drink is just three simple ingredients – water, coconut water, and Brothers Buddha’s Berry Hemp CBD Green Tea. Green tea is packed full of immune-boosting antioxidants and flavinoids. Brothers Buddha’s Berry Tea is a harmonious blend of Green Tea, Tulsi (Holy Basil) Blackberry Leaves, and medical-grade hemp CBD. Coconut water is a powerful source of natural electrolytes. It also contains 13 times more potassium than Gatorade, and twice as much natural sodium. Potassium is an electrolyte essential for proper cell function.
Raw Local CBD Honey
Honey is an amazing source of energy to repair and replenish the body. Honey also keeps blood sugar levels in check and keeps cortisol levels balanced. Brothers Wild Rosin CBD Honey is handcrafted using full-spectrum Hemp Rosin and blended with sustainable, ethically harvested raw wildflower honey. Terpene rich and packed with flavor, this honey packs a punch with an estimated 20MG CBD per teaspoon.
Sea salt is naturally chock-full of electrolytes and essential minerals. It also plays an important role in balancing the stress hormones released during exercise, and has been found to reduce blood cortisol levels. Salt also helps enhance flavors, providing a perfect foil the sweetness of the Brothers Wild Rosin CBD Honey.
Sure, fresh fruit juice provides some helpful antioxidants and vitamins, but the main reason is the flavor. Just because this drink is healthy doesn’t mean it has to taste bad! For our recipe, we use unsweetened pomegranate juice to provide a little tartness and a beautiful, rich color.
