As the turn of the New Year arrives, it brings with it resolutions, ideas and hopes for everyone’s 2018. And, the first step towards being able to meet the goals you have made for the coming year is making sure you are feeling as healthy as you possibly can be…
Our first blog of the year here at CBD Life UK, focuses on what you can be doing to make sure you have a healthy lifestyle whilst incorporating CBD into your diet as a daily food supplement.
And, while you can’t stop ageing, you can slow it down in a way. The first step towards good health is to eat right.
Although there are many different factors that can determine how long you are going to live, by following a healthy lifestyle, staying active, eating well, and using CBD, you are definitely doing everything right.
Here’s to your good health!
How do you naturally slow aging? It’s a question that’s been asked for centuries. While there isn’t a special formula that magically erases the wrinkles away, incorporating certain anti-aging foods into your diet is the best way to help bring you closer to that goal.
Staying healthy and happy for most of, if not all our lives is something we all want. By adding CBD into our daily routines, we can ensure that our Endocannabinoid system is working at it’s best to regulate all bodily functions. There is hardly any physiological process that is not affected by our EC system to some degree.
Overall, the ECS is a relatively new discovered regulatory physiological system, which holds great promise for improvements in human quality of life.
The way we extract CBD allows us to pull all of the natural and beneficial nutrients out of the cannabis plant without getting anything nasty in there as well. Not only are you NOT getting high, but you are getting a product from us that’s natural and safe.
In addition to eating right, it’s no secret that adding CBD to your diet can really help to support and maintain great health.
So, in addition to using CBD, which foods should you be eating to stay healthy and slow down the ageing process?
Well, the top anti-ageing foods are also some of the most prominent high-antioxidant foods and anti-inflammatory foods around too.
First of all cut out all inflammatory foods! This is processed, packaged and fast foods, as well as gluten, dairy and sugar.
- Omega fatty acids.
Keeping your skin well-hydrated from the inside out is one of the best ways to prevent dry skin and wrinkles. Omega fatty acids -3, -6, and -9 found in healthy fats and oils are vital because they become part of the skin cell walls. Omega and fatty acids are also found in all of our CBD products. Safe, natural and healthy.
Salmon, walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds, coconut oil, olive oil and avocado are all great choices.
- Amino acids.
Another cause of wrinkles is the weakening of collagen and elastin in the skin that happens as we age. Amino acids found in protein sources can help rebuild and repair damage. Meat, fish, eggs, some grains, nuts, and seeds are all excellent sources.
- Leafy green vegetables.
Broccoli, kale, spinach and mustard greens will keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Green juices are also an easy way to help absorb the nutrients more quickly.
Too much time out in the sun is a leading cause of ageing. The sun creates free radicals that can permanently kill off healthy skin cells. Yet the sun is not the only culprit— an unhealthy diet can do the same. All berries are amazing foods to eat as well as tomatoes!
- Potassium-rich foods.
If you have dark circles under your eyes, it’s probably genetic but they can also be caused by water retention or sodium-rich foods. Many fruits and vegetables, as well as potatoes, nuts, beans, legumes, meat, poultry and fish are potassium-rich and can offset the sodium. Plus, cutting down on your salt intake is a wise choice for your skin and your overall health.
As we age, our bodies change- not just in how they look, but also in how they work.
Also, never forget about water: Not a food, you say? Think of it as one. Water is so underappreciated. Our bodies are mostly water. If you’re chronically dehydrated, just think of what your cells look like.
Finally, here’s one you may like…red wine: Alcohol may help lower “bad” cholesterol, prevent blood clots, and ease your blood pressure. Go easy, of course. That usually means no more than one drink a day for women and two a day for men. If you don’t drink alcohol, though, don’t start.
