The owners of CB Supplements are all CrossFit junkies.
It’s true, we all love CrossFit. Actually, the three partners (Charlie, Kyle & Eric) all met at their local CrossFit gym (shout out to CrossFit Orlando) and quickly bonded over fantastic workouts like Fran, Murph, and good ole fashion deadlifts.
Why does that matter? Because we created a product to help CrossFitters improve performance, recover faster and get back to doing what we love — tomorrow's WOD. And that is exactly what we did. We created a product that helps CrossFit athletes of all skill levels recover from workouts sooner.
Collagen (in particular MULTI collagen), is an awesome supplement for CrossFit athletes.
Collagen aids CrossFitters in stronger skin (and faster wound healing)
But perhaps the best benefit from taking multi-collagen may be stronger skin and faster wound healing.
Fear not doing that extra bar muscle-up, kettlebell swing or rope climb; collagen can help protect the skin to not rip during workouts or speed up wound healing should tragedy strike.
Imagine the layer of your skin looks like the front doors to the White House - huge columns connecting the floor steps to the overhanging entrance that supports the roof. The columns are the collagen and the roof is the outer layer of our skin. What happens if the columns erode and lose the integrity of their structure and strength? The roof will cave in.
As we age, collagen manufacturing in the body begins to slow, which damages the density and strength of the collagen holding up our skin (side note: this is one reason why we get wrinkles). Collagen supplementation can help to strengthen the collagen matrix holding our skin in place.
Proline is the skin-loving amino acid abundant in collagen that plays a central role in wound healing and can result in stronger skin that can take rubbing against the pull-up bar 100 times in one workout.
Joint Support & Recovery
Another awesome benefit of collagen supplementation for CrossFitters is joint support and recovery.
Tendonitis and joint pain are some of the more common injuries for CrossFit athletes. CB Supplements multi-collagen can help to restore overall strength and flexibility in aging joints by lowering total inflammation in the body, especially around the joint.
Collagen contains high amounts of the amino acid glycine, which is an essential component to multiple bodily functions including digestion, the nervous system, and the immune system. Glycine allows the body to ‘do its job’, which means repair the inflammation caused by the daily WOD so that you can go back for another one tomorrow. Isn’t that what every CrossFitter wants?
The most abundant feedback we receive at CB Supplements from CrossFitters who take our product is that they ‘feel good’. When a CrossFit athlete wakes up feeling good, the chances the workout of the day gets crushed in almost a certainty.
