Since the boom of the “health fad”, we are constantly looking for ways to be fit and stay healthy. From keeping track of what we eat and how much we sleep, to taking supplements. Speaking on that… natural supplements are one of the most consumed products in the health industry. One of the most popular is the CBD supplements. Many fitness enthusiasts and even professional athletes are starting to link exercise and CBD in the hope of finding natural support to recovery.
The scientifically known overtraining syndrome, or OTS, is the systemic fatigue and declining performance in sport. This condition is very common in people who are new to fitness and attempt to start with too much intensity. This can result which can result in mood changes, decreased motivation, and even injuries.
Exercise and CBD: how can it help?
The human body has a biological network called the endocannabinoid system, also present in all mammals. This network is made up of neurotransmitters and receptors specifically sensitive to cannabinoids. Hemp can produce different effects when it connects with the receptors in our body’s immune system, enabling it to more readily produce its own cannabinoids.
Studies have shown that hemp products have promise in treating the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis.
Let’s get buffed up with Hemp!
First and foremost, No! Hemp will not give you a superman-like body nor will it give you the energy to workout non-stop! But Hemp products may help you in a different way, especially if you are suffering from OTS.
Any physical exercise whether running, lifting weights, or exercise in general, can cause microscopic damage to the body’s muscles and tissues. These damages can cause inflammation, that’s why we feel sore, especially the day after a strenuous exercise. It’s the same inflammation that triggers the body’s repair processes, allowing our muscles to grow back stronger.
While studies currently debate exactly when exercisers should try to curb inflammation and when they should just let the body recover on its own, they also suggest that hemp products can be a powerful aid as an anti-inflammatory compound.
Hemp shows a lot of potential in helping with exercise-related injuries when it reacts with the endocannabinoid receptors in muscle tissues, nervous system, and brain.
So the next time you feel pain after an intense workout, make sure you have some Vesl Oils Muscle Gel to help to reduce that soreness.
