The benefits of massage oil with CBD

Massage is very important for all athletes. When we train 5-6 days a week, sometimes even twice a day, it’s very important that we make sure we smoothen out all muscles regularly. Massages can not only relax the body, but also prevent injuries and even promote muscle growth.

When getting a massage, it’s important to use the best oil, as your skin is the largest organ and absorbs anything that is applied topically. A high quality massage oil with CBD is a great option for any massage, whether at home, in spas or at a chiropractic office.

Why have CBD in my massage oil?

Your skin contains endocannabinoid receptors and is connected to your endocannabinoid system. The main function of the endocannabinoid system is to regulate and maintain bodily homeostasis, while keeping the biological harmony of our body in place in response to environmental changes. It also plays a crucial role in helping regulate an array of physiological and cognitive processes, which includes supporting memory retention, balancing mood, maintaining a normal appetite, boosting our immune system and supporting overall wellbeing. CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system, which therefore promotes homeostasis in the body, combats swelling, enhances circulation and helps to reduce discomforts. The interaction of CBD and the endocannabinoid system also enhances clarity and focus, decreases anxious feelings, promotes a sense of calmness, aids in recovery and assists in a better night’s rest.

A massage is a perfect solution if you have sore muscles or want to promote overall wellbeing. CBD can help reduce discomfort, promote relaxation, ease stress and even nourish the skin.

How to eat for weight loss

There are so many diets out there, no wonder people get confused which one would suit them better. Atkins diet, bloodtype diet, cabbage soup diet, grapefruit diet, slimming world, weight watchers, ketogenic diet, low fat diet, low GI diet..... and the list goes on. Is losing fat as simple as creating calorie deficit? Most diets say: if your calorie intake is less than what you burn off, you will lose weight. Well, that might be true – to a certain extent, but is it only fat that you will burn off?

A pound of fat equals 3500 calories. A pound of muscle renders 600 calories. So 500 calories deficit a day will give you 3500 calories over a week: 500 x 7 = 3500
However there are 2 ways it can go:
- you will either lose 1 pound of fat (3500 calories)
- or you can lose 6 pounds of muscle (6 x 600 = 3600 calories)
 Obviously you want to avoid losing muscle tissue. That's why it is important that you pay attention to the correct calorie deficit based on your current bodyfat levels and activity level. If you have a higher % of bodyfat, you can get away with a larger deficit in the early stages of your diet. But if you have a low(er) % of bodyfat, the calorie deficit needs to be adjusted to avoid losing muscle tissue. In your cutting diet, the type of protein, carb and fat has to be considered as well as how the body processes them.

1 gr of protein = 4 calories,

1 gr of carbs = 4 calories and
1 gr of fat = 9 calories.
 In general, high glycemic carbs create a large, temporary rise in blood sugar because they're quickly digested. Low GI carbs create a lower rise because they're slower digested.

A rapid blood sugar rise means:

- more insulin is released. A high insulin level promotes quick storage of sugar in muscle and liver. It also inhibits the hormone glucagon which normally tells the body to burn stored fat. Obese people tend to be sugar burners, they mainly burn stored glycogen. Their forthcoming meals restore glycogen (especially if it's high GI) and the circle goes on, therefore they never get to burn stored bodyfat, they just store more and more.
- Blood sugar levels drop quickly, leaving you feel hungry sooner, so your body needs fuel again. The glucagon is still in short supply, therefore the body does not tap into the stored fat for supply. You feel hungry and will eat again – needlessly, which will lead to increased fat gain over time.

 Moderate and high glycemic foods are recommended after exercise when the plasma glucose concentrations are elevated and it facilitates muscle glycogen replenishment.
