Scam artist Russell Wilson pushing his BS 'Recovery Water' as a concussion cure again at the Yankees expense

Back in 2015 Russell Wilson said his 'Recovery Water' healed a concussion in a piece in Rolling Stone.

Wilson is an investor in Reliant Recovery Water, a $3-per-bottle concoction with nanobubbles and electrolytes that purportedly helps people recover quickly from workouts and, according to Wilson, injury. He mentions a teammate whose knee healed miraculously, and then he shares his own testimonial.

"I banged my head during the Packers game in the playoffs, and the next day I was fine," says Wilson. "It was the water."

Rodgers offers a hasty interjection. "Well, we're not saying we have real medical proof."

But Wilson shakes his head, energized by the subject. He speaks with an evangelist's zeal.

"I know it works." His eyes brighten. "Soon you're going to be able to order it straight from Amazon."

Wait, Nanobubbles reducing tau protein phosphorylation in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease isn't real medical proof? Hmmmm.

And then he clarified in a Tweet that his 'Recovery Water' didn't help him 'heal' a concussion but it may have helped him prevent one.

And then he talked to reporters.

"I didn't have a concussion," Wilson said. "I guess it was perceived wrong. I did not have a concussion. I was saying that I had been consistently drinking the water for a month and a half -- five, seven times a day. And I was like, 'Man, maybe this stuff is helping me out.'"

"I didn't have a head injury, but what I was trying to say is I think it helped prevent it," he said. "I think your brain consists of like 75, 80 percent water, so I think that just being hydrated, drinking the recovery water really does help."

Richard Watson, Reliant’s chief science officer, recommended three bottles per day back in 2014, but says some use more or less as they find what works best for them. Rather than a product to be consumed during exercise, Watson says it’s meant to “maintain your system.”

And you still cannot buy it on Amazon. You can get it on Reliant's website (where they only state 'Naturally flavored with no sugar added and no calories, Reliant Recovery Water has a fresh, crisp taste without the artificial junk. Just Oxygen and Electrolytes to help you bounce back faster.'). Oh god, then they add:

Our patented high pressure process replicates the natural water turbulence occurring at the base of waterfalls. Our purified water is infused with additional oxygen to help with recovery. We add essential minerals needed for proper hydration.

Recovery Water's ingredients: "PURIFIED WATER, NATURAL FLAVORS (excluding original), OXYGEN, Calcium Chloride, Magnesium Chloride, and Potassium Bicarbonate (MINERAL ELECTROLYTES)"

How much does this stuff cost? $2 per bottle and $30 for economy shipping. 3 day shipping is available for the low low low price of $85 bucks. So roughly 6 bucks per 16.9 ounce bottle of water and cal mag pot.

Now Wilson is pushing his water at Yankees camp.

Outfielder Clint Frazier credited the Seahawks quarterback's advice with helping alleviate some of his concussion symptoms Wednesday.

Wilson's words of wisdom to the 23-year-old, who described his headache as having migraine intensity? Drink more water.

"I think I've drank a gallon, at least, (Wednesday)," said Frazier, who watched the Yankees lose to the Tigers, 9-6, at George M. Steinbrenner Field.

"I don't know for sure -- it pumps oxygen to your brain, a lot. I feel alive right now. Maybe I was lacking water. I don't know."

Pro athlete doesn't know if he's getting enough water? Embarrassing. (BTW - the perfect amount of water is 1/2 your body weight in ounces. ie, 200 pound man gets 100 ounces of water. Add a bit more to make up for any caffeine or alcohol you may drink. And use sea salt liberally.)

And you wondered why Wilson was coming to camp for 5 days...sales.
