People come to yoga classes to feel better, and it works. The mindful stretching, strengthening, focus and positive energy leave a yoga glow on everyone who shows up on their mat. The problem is – for many students, that yoga glow doesn’t last long. There are a lot of health issues that people are dealing with every day, and it’s hard to know how to find help in a world of doctors who push pills and expect some unnatural solution to fix the human body.

We know through our yoga practice that the solution comes from within, but we need to use the natural tools provided for us so we can live without pain and discomfort, can sleep well throughout the night and maintain the equilibrium of emotions. A dietary supplement known as hemp oil is gaining the interest of holistic doctors, chiropractors, and scientists. Let’s take a closer look at how this natural product can support your yoga practice:

Supporting Your Body’s Systems

Within the last 20 years, scientists have discovered a new system in the body that regulates the endocrine system, which is responsible for things like balancing hormones, allowing the body to sleep and digest food and oversees that whole “fight or flight” syndrome. The regulator of all of this is called the endocannabinoid system, which is supported by cannabinoids that naturally occur in the body. But when the body is stressed – sound familiar? – this system needs external support. Enter phytocannabinoids, this same chemical that is made from the hemp plant into tinctures, capsules, and salves that are used as a natural supplement.

Strong Reviews of Benefits

Not surprisingly with the complexity of the body, the benefits of high quality, natural hemp oil are considerably varied. Reviewers often mention improvements they notice in many different areas of their overall well-being. Some use the salve to rub the hemp oil directly on a sore section of the body, while others begin with a small serving each day and mindfully increase if necessary.

Whole Plant Production is Key

Whenever considering adding a new supplement to the regime, it’s smart to do some homework to decide if it could work. High-Quality hemp oil should start on a small, organic farm that does not require long transportation time, using plants with superior genetics for an effective product. The entire plant – not just the chemical isolate – should be used in a gentle infusion process in a laboratory that has proper oversight and testing to ensure a consistent product.

Overcoming the Body to Simply Sit Comfortably

Traditionally, yoga students didn’t show up to class just to exercise and feel a little bit better after a stressful day. Yoga practitioners once simply worked to overcome the aches and pains in the body, which they considered a distraction from the important work of meditation. Of course, the reality is that today we’re all sitting at desks all day, dealing with deadlines and traffic jams that the original yogis never dreamed of. Today, we require support that can help us feel good even before we step on our mat – so that then we can focus on feeling even better with yoga.
