Your mobility is everything. When pain or fatigue keeps you off your feet, the whole world seems to stop. But you don’t have to just take the pain and exhaustion that is keeping you from doing what you love. You have a host of weapons in your armory.
Things Slowing You Down?
Some days, you feel like you can’t quite pick up your feet, your brain feels cobwebby, and your reflexes are about as quick as a snail stuck in molasses on a Monday. If this sluggishness is happening more often than you would like it to, it might be one of these things:
Lack of Sleep
The first possibility is a simple lack of sleep. Americans love to “run on Dunkin,” rather than sufficient amounts of restorative sleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends that healthy adults get 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night. The two-hour variation in there can only be determined by you. How much sleep does it take for you to wake up feeling refreshed? Remember, everyone is different and has different needs.
Many people don’t know that one of the first symptoms of mild dehydration is fatigue. As your body begins to lose fluids, your blood pressure falls, ultimately reducing the amount of oxygen delivered to your brain. This is what makes you feel tired and sluggish.
Chronic stress can leave you wiped out. When you perceive something to be a threat, your body undergoes a stress response, also called the fight-or-flight response. This releases adrenaline, which causes a chain reaction within your body that raises your heartrate, pushes blood and oxygen to your limbs, brain, and heart, and gives you the sudden boost of energy you need to handle the threat. As stress becomes chronic, cortisol kicks in to keep you in a sustained state of high alert. Just like any machine that is kept running at full throttle for an extended amount of time, your body will eventually become exhausted, and you will experience adrenal fatigue.
Your brain is a complex system of neurotransmitters, hormones, neuromodulators, and neurotransmitter precursors. If even one of these chemicals becomes out of balance, the entire system can be compromised. There are dozens of mental and physical illnesses that are at least partially caused by neurotransmitter deficiency, including depression, insomnia, and adrenal fatigue.
Vitamin or Mineral Deficiencies
When your body lacks certain nutrients, the result can be sluggishness and fatigue. Deficiencies in Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, and Vitamin C will make you feel tired all the time. Similarly, certain mineral deficiencies do the same thing. The main culprits are iron, magnesium, and potassium.
How to Keep Up
Luckily, ProHEMP is here to help you keep up with our Mobility adaptogenic. Mobility is anti-aging, supports your joints, supports healthy skin, and helps you stay active.* This cinnamon vanilla flavored tincture has four important ingredients to boost your energy and keep you going.
Hemp activates the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the human endocannabinoid system, improving support for your anti-inflammatory response and immune system. It also has been found to increase the activity of serotonin 5-HT receptors, helping the body maintain healthy levels of serotonin. Some of the phytocannabinoids and terpenoids found in hemp oil are also believed to support healthy hormone levels, protect neurological pathways, and neutralize free radicals.*
Turmeric is a spice that has long been treasured for its medicinal properties. The active ingredient in turmeric is polyphenol curcumin, which supports healthy oxidative stress levels and recovery from inflammation, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, and anxiety.* It is even thought to support healthy relief from muscle soreness after a strenuous workout.
Ginger is bursting with over 100 known compounds, including gingerol, terpenes, vitamins, and minerals. Gingerol is thought to offer several important biological properties, such as antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-neuroinflammation.* It is also believed to combat nausea and fatigue.
Black pepper contains the sesquiterpenoid B-Caryophyllene, which binds to CB2 receptors and is both an anxiolytic (reduces anxiety) and anti-nociceptive, which inhibits the sensation of pain.
As Robin Sharma once said, “Change is hard at first, messy in the middle, and gorgeous at the end.” It can be so hard to make needed changes in our lives, but it is always worth the effort. If you are experiencing prolonged fatigue, you might need to make some lifestyle changes. Remember, small but steady changes are always more effective than trying to tackle everything at once.
There are some simple steps you can take to address the root causes listed above. For better sleep, find ways to relax your mind before bed. Essential oils for relaxation, such as Lavender and Chamomile, are great for this. For dehydration, set the simple goal to drink more water. It helps to carry a refillable water bottle with you at all times. Visit your doctor to find out if you have a chemical imbalance, and remember, our adaptogenics can help if you do. Finally, eat a healthy diet and take the supplements you need to address any vitamin or mineral deficiencies you might have.
You don’t have to shuffle through life in chronic pain and fatigue. There are steps you can take to address those issues, allowing you to live your best life full of health and vitality. And remember, one tool in your toolbox is always right here at ProHEMP. Don’t wait another day to find out how Mobility can energize you and keep you going.
