Here at Ergo Hemp Co. we want to help everyone achieve better health & wellness. When we aren’t feeling our best, we don’t perform at our best. So what can we do? This blog will discuss how CBD can help alleviate cold & flu symptoms and boost your immune system.
The fears of coronavirus are extremely high right now. This blog is by no means suggesting a cure/treatment for coronavirus, the common cold or the flu. We thought we could share some natural ways to help reduce discomfort while suffering from symptoms. Research suggests that CBD can help reduce symptoms such as:
- Itchy eyes
- Stuffy nose
- Body ache
When you are feeling crummy, doctors typically prescribe medicine and suggest lots of rest. CBD can help you get the rest you need along with boosting your immune system and energy levels. Let’s discuss how!
We all know that getting sound sleep when you are sick can be difficult. CBD increases the availability of serotonin which has soothing, anti-anxiety effects. It also helps lower inflammation which promotes sounder sleep! CBD can act as an alternative natural method to help you fall asleep and stay asleep, helping you get the rest you need. Sleep is so crucial to a healthy mind & body.
CBD research has also shown that CBD can boost your immune system. Cannabinoids, like CBD, act as immune suppressors allowing CBD to help strengthen the immune system. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is involved in maintaining a proper functioning immune system. CBD interacts with the ECS by maintaining the balance required to keep the immune system functioning at an optimum level. Therefore, the stimulation of the ECS through cannabinoids like CBD enhances the health, balance, responsivity and overall functions of the immune’s system.
Studies have shown that CBD can boost energy levels by strengthening body cells that can make you feel sleepy or sluggish. It can also help reignite focus and mental clarity allowing you to think more clearly. Because CBD interacts with the receptors throughout the ECS, it can help influence any one of its many biological processes. As such, CBD can help give the body the energy boost it needs to function properly when recovering.
CBD is also a natural source of essential vitamins and minerals our body needs to function at an optimal level such as:
- B complex vitamins
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin C
In addition to a healthy diet, exercise and a good nights’ sleep, CBD can help you achieve and maintain good health. But as a reminder, the best way to avoid getting sick and not spreading sickness is to wash your hands often, sneeze and cough into your arm and stay home when sick. We always wish you health & wellness.
