Five-a-Day, Work, Rest, Play and CBD
Of course, the most recent advice from public health experts is that we should consume 10 portions of fruit and vegetables every day. For most people that will be very difficult to achieve so it highlights why food supplements can be such an important part of a healthy diet.
Using CBD as a food supplement is even more important because cannabinoids, which used to be part of everyone’s everyday food, have been virtually removed from our diet since the ban on cannabis in the early part of the 20th century. Before that, all over the world, hemp was one of the most common agricultural crops. Every town and village in the UK would have been surrounded by fields of hemp and it would have been a very normal part of life.
Some scientists believe that the modern surge in cancers, auto immune diseases, allergies and many other conditions may be caused by endocannabinoid system deficiency. In the past humans would have avoided this by the consumption of what are called phytocannabinoids, that is cannabinoids from the cannabis plant.
There may be many other factors in modern day disease but there can be no doubt that regular, moderate consumption of CBD as a food supplement can help to improve and maintain health. Other hemp derived products such as hemp seeds and hempseed oil are also very beneficial with an almost perfect balance of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids.
We all need to take care of our nutritional intake. A balanced diet is the first stage in that process but the pressures of modern life can get in the way. Commuting to work can play havoc with the time needed to eat a proper breakfast and the mad scramble for lunch in our busy cities often means that it’s a rushed sandwich and then home late in the evening often far too tired to prepare a healthy meal. Vitamins, minerals, juicing and Love Hemp CBD supplements are all ways to fill these gaps and provide the stability that is the hallmark of good health.
Many people find using CBD last thing at night can help with restful sleep. Science demonstrates that a well-nourished endocannabinoid system helps with rest, relaxation and it is implicated in the processes of healing and recovery after sport and exercise.
So whether you’re managing to get your five-a-day or even 10, add a Love Hemp CBD supplement as well. It’s part of an all-round health and fitness routine that will make you healthier, stronger and happier.
