Maintaining an active lifestyle is part of any wellness plan, contributing to optimum physical and mental health. However, many activities can lead to discomfort post-workout, such as sore muscles and achy joints. Consistent self-care can help prevent and relieve such ailments. Botanical remedies are useful in creating holistic rituals for athletes of all levels, in particular hemp-derived formulas. How do they support an active lifestyle? Here are 3 simple, effective and natural ways to incorporate hemp into your fitness routine:
Stretching is not always enough to prevent soreness and potential inflammation after a strenuous work-out. Topical formulas powered by hemp seed oil in the form of balms or lotions are especially soothing and can be used daily pre or post work-out. At Alurx, hemp seed oil is combined with other botanicals such as peppermint oil, natural arnica and ginger extracts to enhance their soothing benefits and help relieve any early sign of inflammation. You may have observed that many physical therapists use ointments such as the Nourishing Salve with Hemp, Relax to massage away painful areas. To deliver the same experience at home, massage our Cooling Gel with Hemp, Relax onto your skin as you enjoy the cooling sensation as you apply it with the metal roller tip on the end of the Alurx product tube.
Shift Your Mindset:
Keeping an active lifestyle requires staying consistent, motivated and clear-minded, which can often be a challenge for all of us from time to time. Seasonal transitions, work-related stresses and other energy-sapping circumstances can get in the way of your daily walk, yoga session or visit to the gym. Adding Broad Spectrum CBD tinctures and gummies to your daily rituals can help you regulate your mood and tap into your motivation and energy banks. Alurx’s premium CBD formulas are made in the U.S.A., developed in state-of-the art labs and production facilities, preserving the valuable properties of the hemp plant with no THC. Our tinctures, such as the Unflavored Hemp Tincture for Boosting Wellness, include droppers to allow for personal and precise dosage, and they’re naturally flavored. Try adding them to your morning coffee, water bottle or juices.
Get Plenty of Rest:
The secret to staying active is to get plenty of rest. A good night’s sleep allows for your mind and body to reset, repair and refuel for the next day. Exercising in the morning is known to help achieve a more restful evening. In addition, having a sleep ritual builds healthy sleep patterns as our AMEC member, Sarah Moe, explains in her research and sleep practice. CBD can support better sleep cycles by interacting with the endo-cannabinoid system that helps regulate mood and sleep. Sipping a cup of herbal tea can be another relaxing addition to your sleep ritual. Botanicals such as calming valerian root, chamomile and lavender are blended with 25mg Hemp in our 5 Herbs Tea Blend with Hemp, Sleep to deliver a soothing and refreshing way to relax before bedtime.
Tapping into the wellness benefits of botanicals is an effective and natural way to support an active lifestyle. As more research on the endo-cannabinoid system continues to explore the benefits of the hemp plant, there are many effective ways to incorporate hemp-infused formulas to your daily rituals and optimize your health and fitness plans.
