Your Post-Workout Relief Partners


In our last article, we delved into the phenomenon of post-workout aches, explaining the science behind these often misunderstood signals from our bodies. We explored Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), a type of exercise-induced muscle pain that sets in after intense exercise, particularly when our bodies are unaccustomed to it. DOMS is the result of microscopic damage to the muscle fibers, triggering an inflammatory response that helps with tissue repair and adaptation.

To manage these post-workout aches, we discussed the importance of hydration and nutrition, the benefits of active recovery, the essential role of quality sleep, the value of mindful practices, and the efficacy of certain natural remedies and supplements.

Continuing our journey into the realm of post-workout aches and recovery, it’s time to delve into the science behind WholyMe products. At WholyMe, we work in harmony with nature and science to formulate products that aid in effective muscle recovery and relieve post-workout soreness. Here’s how:

Enhancing Post-Workout Recovery

WholyMe Relief Balm aids in post-workout recovery and alleviating symptoms of DOMS. Its anti-inflammatory components work synergistically to reduce muscle inflammation, a common contributor to DOMS. Moreover, the balm’s regenerative ingredients help repair damaged muscles, speeding up the recovery process. The essential oils blend further promotes relaxation and soothes muscle tension, important factors for overall recovery. The balm’s targeted application allows for a localized effect, providing relief exactly where it’s needed. This makes WholyMe Relief Balm an excellent tool for managing DOMS, as it can be applied directly to the sore and aching muscles. This leads to effective, natural relief and aids in the speedy recovery of your muscles after a workout.

WholyMe Recover Relief Salts: Bathing in Recovery

The WholyMe Recover Relief Salts are designed to provide a multi-faceted approach to post-exercise recovery. Combining a range of carefully selected ingredients, the Relief Salts not only promote muscle and joint recovery but also offer a relaxing bathing experience.

Epsom salts, or magnesium sulfate, are at the heart of the Relief Salts formulation. Known for their muscle-relaxing properties, these salts break down into magnesium and sulfate when dissolved in warm water. The magnesium component plays a vital role in enzymatic reactions within the body, including the breakdown of lactic acid, which is responsible for post-workout muscle pain and soreness.

The formulation also includes hemp seed oil, arnica oil, eucalyptus essential oil, and frankincense essential oil. These components bring their unique benefits, including reducing inflammation, soothing pain, and promoting relaxation.

The Recover Relief Salts are specifically designed for post-exercise muscle and joint recovery. Studies suggest that soaking in Epsom salts can reduce muscle soreness and relieve cramps, making them an excellent choice for post-workout recovery.

For those experiencing DOMS, which often develops 12-24 hours post-exercise and produces the most pain between 24-72 hours after the exercise, WholyMe Relief Salts can provide relief. The blend of ingredients supports the body’s natural healing process, potentially reducing the severity and duration of DOMS.

Optimal Use of WholyMe’s Products for Post-Workout Soreness

Start your post-workout recovery routine by soaking in a warm bath infused with WholyMe Recover Relief Salts. Dissolve a generous handful in the bath and immerse yourself for at least 20 minutes. This allows the salts and essential oils to be adequately absorbed into the skin. The Relief Salts provide a blend of recovery and relaxation, offering a comprehensive approach to post-exercise muscle and joint recovery.

After your soothing bath, apply the Relief Balm, focusing on areas of discomfort. This step aids in muscle and joint recovery. The balm is clinically and dermatologically tested, making it a safe way to mitigate muscle and joint stress post-exercise. It’s organic certified, made in France, and suitable for daily use.
