Both plant-based products and cryotherapy are known to aid in sports recovery. That’s why TIDL’s cryo products use plant-based ingredients to give you the best in sports recovery.
The benefits of choosing plant-based diets are clear. Going plant-based improves the individual and the environment. In addition, people who follow a plant-based diet enjoy a lower risk of succumbing to several diseases, including heart disease, certain cancers, and type 2 diabetes.
When it comes to the environment, the global food system — especially animal products such as beef, lamb, and dairy — contributes to 20-35% of the earth’s greenhouse emissions and plays a significant part in deforestation and loss of biodiversity.
When you look at the power that plants have in supporting your health and the environment’s health, it stands to reason that the benefits of plant-based products offer similar rewards.
TIDL Sport’s plant-based cryotherapy products harness the power of plants to offer athletes a complete, effective method to improve sports performance and recovery.
What Is Cryotherapy?
There are many types of cryotherapy, ranging from cold compresses and ice packs to submerging in an ice bath to high-tech cryotherapy chambers.
When considering cryotherapy, most people think of high-tech whole-body cryotherapy (WBC) chambers, which originated in 1978 by a Japanese physician, Dr. Toshima Yamauchi, to treat arthritis. In WBC, the patient wears limited coverings and is enclosed in a chamber that can reach temperatures as low as -300 degrees Fahrenheit.
The treatment lasts only two to four minutes and works to recover and rejuvenate the body naturally.
The origin of cryotherapy dates back far longer than the 1970s, however. For centuries, applying cold to sore or injured muscles has reduced inflammation and swelling and offered restorative benefits.
Now, athletes use cryotherapy for sports recovery and to boost performance.
What Are the Benefits of Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy means “cold therapy” and involves exposing the body to freezing temperatures to promote healing and relieve pain. Oftentimes, athletes turn to cryotherapy to recover from injuries or intense workouts and return to their activities with fresh, restored muscles and joints.
Some key benefits of cryotherapy include:
- Reduced inflammation
- Increased blood circulation
- Lessened muscle pain
- Relaxing of overworked muscles
- Muscle and tissue repair
- Reduced recovery time
Since TIDL Sport creams and sprays allow athletes to receive the benefits of cryotherapy at home, athletes can conveniently speed their workout recovery and improve their performance without visiting a cryotherapy facility.
What Are the Benefits of Plant-Based Products?
The perks of going plant-based extend beyond what you eat. Harnessing the power of plants to support the body inside and out may seem trendy now, but the practice has been around since the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations.
At TIDL Sport, we choose our ingredients based on the benefits of plant-based products, which naturally contain vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory agents that permeate the skin and offer long-term recovery relief.
Some of the benefits of plant-based products include:
Using plants instead of a synthetic compound allows for cleaner products containing fewer chemicals with unknown side effects.
For example, many products meant for skin application contain harmful parabens and phthalates. Parabens are preservatives that have been linked to breast cancer development, while phthalates are lubricants linked to breast cancer and congenital reproductive disabilities.
Plant-based products skip the chemicals for leaf extracts, oils, and juices that can offer the same benefits without the side effects.
When choosing plant-based products, you don’t have to worry about secretly applying rendered animal fat or bug excretions to your skin. Instead, rest assured that you’re utilizing the power of nature to perform better and recover faster.
Plant-based products put less strain on the environment. The meat and dairy industries emit greenhouse gases and also use more water and clear more land than the industries fueling plant-based products.
How Does Plant-Based Cryotherapy Work?
One of the most exciting components of TIDL Sport’s plant-based cryotherapy products is the ability to use nature to improve sports performance and recovery. Our products include carefully selected ingredients to reduce inflammation and soothe aching muscles.
Some of these products and their benefits include:
Arnica Montana Flower Extract
The arnica flower has been used for medicinal purposes since the 1500s. This perennial flower with daisy-like buds has been used topically as a tincture or main ingredient in creams, salves, or TIDL Sport’s Cryotherapy Spray.
Arnica montana flower extract is proven to soothe muscle aches, reduce inflammation, and relieve injuries, especially sprains and bruises.
Beta-caryophyllene, often shortened to caryophyllene, is found in cloves, rosemary, hops, and black pepper. Numerous research studies focus on caryophyllene’s health benefits, including anti-inflammatory effects, promoting sound sleep, calming the body, improving blood flow, and relieving pain.
Beta-caryophyllene is one of the main ingredients in TIDL Sport’s Cryo-Relief Performance Cream.
More commonly known as the chemical in peppers that gives them their heat, capsaicin offers more than flavor. It has anti-inflammatory benefits and is a common ingredient in oral and topical pain relievers. Capsaicin is a critical ingredient in TIDL Sport’s Cryo-Relief Performance Cream.
Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract
Also known as marigold flower extract, calendula oil offers anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that make it a powerhouse for relieving pain and restoring function. Calendula flower extract is found in TIDL Sport’s Cryotherapy Spray.
Organic Aloe Vera Juice
Organic aloe vera juice provides the body with soothing, anti-inflammatory benefits. In addition, the hydrating juice of aloe vera plants can help flush away waste like lactic acid, provide vitamins and antioxidants, and expedite healing.
Organic aloe vera juice is just one of the powerful ingredients found in TIDL Sport’s Cryo-Relief Performance Cream.
