What’s in Helios Revive to help you recover?

If you’ve ever had a can of our water-soluble energy drink, you already know it tastes great. We’ve worked hard to make it taste as good as possible. 

But as a hemp extract recovery drink, it’s more than just about how it tastes. It’s about the quality and effects of the drink ingredients that takes it one step above your typical energy drink. Let’s take a look at what makes Helios, a nano-emulsified hemp extract energy drink, an excellent option when you’re interested in perking up after a night of playing hard. 

Purified Water

At Helios, we want to make sure that our hemp extract recovery drink contains everything you want and nothing you don’t. That “nothing you don’t” means that we start with purified water so that the water is a higher quality, free of as many contaminants and impurities as it possibly can. This makes the water safe for consumption and giving you fresher, more pure, water to put in your body. 

Nano-Emulsified, Water-Soluble Hemp Extract

Hemp extract is derived from the cannabis sativa plant, more commonly known as hemp. The molecules found in our hemp extract are different molecules from THC, the psychoactive component found in marijuana, so there’s no chance of you getting a high from hemp extract. 

Hemp extract is currently under constant study for its possible benefits to the human body. Unfortunately, most hemp extract products you’ll find on the market contain oil-soluble solutions of cannabidiol. Most hemp extract from other products moves through the body unprocessed, simply because our bodies can’t absorb this oil-soluble version. 

More than half of our body – and four-fifths of our blood – is made from water. Hemp extract molecules like to gather in large clumps, so the Helios preparation process breaks them apart so they can enter the bloodstream more easily. The next step, nano-emulsification, houses these smaller batches of molecules in liquid-protein packets that stick to the intestinal walls and deliver the hemp extract molecules into the bloodstream. 

Caffeine

Caffeine is just a great pick-me-up, and is, in fact, the most widely used drug in the world. Billions of people get their caffeine intake from drinking coffee, tea, soda, and energy drinks in order to wake up a bit and make the most of the day. 

Our hemp extract energy drink, Helios Revive, is a great way to get the caffeine people want without the calories. And thanks to the water-soluble hemp extract we put in, you’re less likely to experience the crash that you might get from other caffeinated drinks.

Potassium

Potassium is absolutely essential to the body and plays many roles. The most common place to find potassium in the body is in muscle cells, but also the bones, liver, and red blood cells. 

Potassium functions as an electrolyte in the body, meaning that it dissolves into positive ions that conduct electricity. As you might know, muscle fibers contract thanks to electrical activity. If you’re low on potassium, your muscles might not contract as efficiently as they should. Potassium also helps with fluid balance in the body and supports nerve signal function. 

Taurine

Taurine is an amino acid that’s most commonly found in meat and dairy products. Taurine is a bit like caffeine, but it hasn’t been studied nearly as much. Some studies suggest that Taurine increases physical stamina, helping people exercise longer. Others show that it helps with alertness and mental acuity, especially when paired with caffeine. 

B-Vitamins

B-vitamins are a family of eight vitamins (called B-complex when taken together) that are all needed by the body in some way. 

Our hemp extract recovery drink contains the three most common B-vitamins that people lose when they go a little too hard: B3, B6, and B12. Let’s take a closer look at each of these.

  • B3 – B3, also known as niacin, plays a key role in converting carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into energy that is usable by the human body.
  • B6 – Vitamin B6 does a lot for the body, far too many functions to list here. Perhaps the two most well known are the roles it plays helping produce amino acids and the duplication of DNA. 
  • B12 – In addition to performing some of the same functions as other B-vitamins, B12 also aids in the creation of new red blood cells and nerve cells.

Recover faster with Helios’ water-soluble hemp extract recover drinks

At Helios, we want to decrease your recovery time after you smash headfirst into life, so we created Revive. It’s a water-soluble hemp extract recovery drink that you’ll actually want to reach for when it’s time to speed-track-it back into the game. 

You’re probably wondering how it works and who’s enjoying it. Let’s take a look. 

So what do we mean by “recovery”?

Recovery can mean a lot of things to different people. Some people think of recovery as something they have to do after a workout. (Helios is pretty good for that.) Others think of recovery as what happens after surgery. (Helios is…well, ask your doctor.) 

But in general, recovery to us means bouncing back from something that’s worn you out. Maybe it’s playing too hard, maybe it’s working too hard. Maybe it’s…well, keep reading.

You’re burning the candle at both ends

If you feel like you’re constantly on the move, Helios is for you. Maybe you’re working hard and don’t feel like going out (even if you want to feel like going out). Maybe you’re in college and want to get a late-night boost without the crash just a couple of hours later. Helios has the amazing ability to wake you up while the hemp extract prevents that caffeine crash you might be used to.

It doesn’t matter why you’re feeling like the world is running you ragged; it just matters that you recover from it. Helios is a tasty way to get just the right amount of caffeine and hemp extract into your bloodstream so that you can make the most of every moment. 

You stayed out too late

Whether you’re drinking alcohol or not, staying out too late with friends can really mess you up the next day, especially if you’re not able to sleep in like you want. But you’re not going to not go out with friends, so you’ve got two choices: be miserable or grab a Helios Revive. We’d suggest the Revive.

Yeah, you drank a little too much

Let’s be honest, sometimes the party gets out of control and some people end up drinking too much. While that’s certainly something you want to keep under control, you also want a way to recover faster when it does happen. 

Is our hemp extract energy drink a hangover cure? We’re not going to claim that you’re going to feel immediately better with a single sip, but Helios Revive does have a lot of the stuff that can start to help you feel better. Stuff like purified water, caffeine, taurine, and b-vitamins. And, of course, water-soluble hemp extract. It’s the closest thing to a hangover cure we’ve found. That being said, you’re probably asking the question…

So what’s the deal with it being water-soluble?

Believe it or not, hemp extract in its basic state isn’t very easy for your body to absorb. The problem is that most of these molecules clump together into clusters that are too big to enter your bloodstream. A typical product containing 25 milligrams of hemp extract will only deliver about 2.5 milligrams into the bloodstream, which means 90% of it is wasted.

That’s where the water-soluble nature of Helios Revive comes into play. Not only are the molecule clusters in our hemp extract small enough, but they are also housed in a liquid-protein packet that sticks to the intestinal wall and helps the hemp extract pass into the bloodstream. (Don’t worry, these organic packets are simply digested afterward.) It’s the most efficient method of making sure you get as much hemp extract goodness into your system as possible. Faster, too!

Ready to recover?

No matter why you’re looking for a water-soluble hemp extract recovery drink, we’re happy to let you know that Helios Revive has exactly what you need to help you bounce back a little faster. Pick up a four-pack right here and check it out.

Water-Soluble Hemp Extract / Nano Hemp Extract: What You Need To Know

If you’re new to the world of hemp extract, you might be confused by the many terms that show up on various sites. Maybe you’ve heard of water-soluble hemp extract and wondered why it’s used in the same articles with phrases such as nano-hemp extract, nano-emulsified hemp extract, or nano-enhanced hemp extract. If you’re a little confused, you’re in good company. That’s why Helios is here to help you understand the jargon you might be hearing when it comes to our water-soluble hemp extract energy drinks.

What’s the difference between water-soluble hemp extract and nano-hemp extract?

There’s really no difference, and these terms are used interchangeably in the industry. Both of these terms refer to hemp extract molecules that have been separated from each other — essentially made smaller — so that they can be more easily absorbed into the bloodstream. So when you hear terms like nano-emulsified hemp extract, nano-enhanced, or simply nano-hemp extract, they are referring to water-soluble hemp extract.

Why is it important to choose water-soluble hemp extract?

As the old saying goes, oil and water don’t mix. hemp extract is hydrophobic, meaning that it does not like to mix with water. With the human body being more than 60% water (and blood more than 80%), hemp extract needs to be delivered in a water-soluble state to make it easily available to the body.

On top of that, molecules of hemp extract want to stick together, but most of these clusters are simply too large to be absorbed into the body. This means that most of the beneficial molecules in a typical hemp extract product — from hemp extract energy drinks to oils to gummies — can’t be absorbed into the bloodstream where they can do the most good. The water-soluble hemp extract found in Helios has higher bioavailability than oil-based hemp extract. 

What does hemp extract bioavailability mean?

Bioavailability simply means the ratio of a substance put into the body compared to the amount that is actually absorbed and made use of. While many products will tout the milligrams of hemp extract their product contains, it’s unlikely that most of it is actually being absorbed by the body where it can do its job.

What happens if hemp extract isn’t made water-soluble?

Since the molecules in hemp extract tend to stick together, most of them are too large to be absorbed and never get into the bloodstream. They are either destroyed by the digestive system or pass through the body unused. In fact, most hemp extract from other products never gets the chance to do any good to anyone. By some estimates, only 10% of hemp extract is absorbed by the body when an oil-based version is taken. Conversely, about 90% of hemp extract in a product is absorbed when water-soluble hemp extract is used.

How is hemp extract made water-soluble? 

In its most natural form, hemp extract simply can’t be absorbed by the body in helpful quantities. That’s why special care has to be taken in order to make it water-soluble, taking each nano part and tailoring it for the human body.

Helios uses the most advanced methods for assisting hemp extract into your bloodstream. Our hemp extract molecules are nested inside organic liquid structures that attach themselves to the intestinal wall, release the hemp extract molecules into the bloodstream, and break apart to be digested. They’re also time-released; not only do they get into the body faster, but they also stay around in the body longer. It’s the perfect delivery method to increase the level of hemp extract molecules that are absorbed.
