It’s never too late to make a healthy, positive change to your lifestyle. Here are five trends you can follow that are shaping the world of wellness in 2019.
Last year, hemp production in the United States was finally made legal with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. This promises to give the American hemp industry a jumpstart, meaning the many benefits of hemp can be made available to consumers around the country.
Putting the plant first
Whether at the farmer’s market or the local produce stall, people want to know that the plants they consume are of the highest quality. Functional Remedies is proud to offer plant-to-bottle control. Our hemp plants are raised on our own farm and processed in our own lab. And we use the whole plant, meaning you’ll get all the nutrients and compounds that hemp has to offer.
“Phyto” stems from the ancient Greek word for “plant,” indicating that this term refers to the vast array of plant nutrients found in plants like hemp that can have many beneficial effects on the body. Functional Remedies’ full-spectrum hemp oil is produced using a lipid infusion process that keeps phytonutrients and other compounds intact, from plant to oil, offering the most effective experience possible. In a full-spectrum product that retains all the compounds found originally in the hemp plant, these compounds produce a stronger overall result, thanks to the “entourage effect,” which refers to the symbiotic relationship among all the compounds in a plant.
One of the most widely-discussed trends this year is self-care. Through methods like meditation, mindfulness and limiting technology, self-care helps people restore a sense of balance to their lives. In a similar way, your endocannabinoid system thrives on balance. It can affect your mood and memory, and it is thought that a deficiency in compounds that affect the endocannabinoid system can lead to discomfort and pain, so make sure you’re taking care of your ECS as part of your self-care regimen.
One way to practice self-care is by doing yoga. After a long day at the office, nothing beats relaxing by doing yoga, whether in a class or in the comfort of your own home. Of course, if you’re starting a yoga practice or returning to it after a long absence, you might have to deal with aches and pains once you hit the mat. But compounds like phytocannabinoids interact with your endocannabinoid system (ECS) which may help relieve that discomfort.
