CBD can help people of all genders and gender identities. In honor of National Women’s Health & Fitness Day in September, we’re joining the celebration and shining a spotlight on women’s* health specifically. Here are seven ways that CBD can help women stay fit, healthy, and achieve next level wellness.
Firing Up Fitness
Women’s Health & Fitness Day promotes the importance of regular physical activity. CBD can help prevent inflammation and soothe muscle aches, so it’s easier to maintain a consistent fitness routine. NextEvo Naturals Premium Pure CBD Extra Strength is formulated to absorb in as little as 10 minutes for speedy post-workout recoveries.
According to The Sleep Foundation, women are more likely to suffer from sleep disorders and general insomnia than men. CBD can help women stop a racing mind, fall asleep more easily, and stay asleep longer. NextEvo Naturals Triple Action CBD Sleep has the added boost of two types of melatonin to promote deep, peaceful sleep.
Women are champion jugglers and multi-taskers. CBD has been shown to help sharpen mental focus, which in turn makes it easier to get things done without exhaustion or burnout. Gummies, dissolvable powders, and mints provide convenient, on-the-go CBD for even the busiest of days.
Chronic stress has an impact on people’s health and well-being. In women, chronic stress can disrupt estrogen production and cause detrimental hormone imbalances. CBD can help women manage day-to-day stressors, and prevent stress from leading to longer-term health issues.
Women are nearly twice as likely to be diagnosed with anxiety as men (source: American Anxiety Disorders Association). CBD can help calm anxiety and frazzled nerves. In fact, a Forbes Health poll found that over half of people who use CBD do so to help manage anxiety.
CBD works with the endocannabinoid system, which regulates nearly every biological function, including all aspects of the female reproductive system. This means health issues unique to women - from pelvic inflammatory disease to menstrual discomfort - can be soothed by CBD. Since CBD helps fight inflammation at its root, it can play an important role in preventative care as well.
Promoting Lifelong Wellness
Health, wellness, and fitness are lifelong endeavors. Because women live longer than men on average, they have more to consider in terms of healthy aging. Some initial studies link CBD to neurogenesis, the creation of new brain cells, which is one of the key factors of lifelong mental and physical health.
We’ll continue to celebrate Women’s Health & Fitness day September, while supporting women’s health all year long.
