Service dogs play an important role in the lives of individuals with disabilities, performing a wide variety of tasks to help the individual maintain their independence and improve their quality of life. An emotional support dog is another animal entirely. Emotional support animals[1] (ESA) provide comfort and companionship, but they generally do not receive any special training. 

While service dogs are protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act[2] (ADA) and receive hundreds of hours of training, emotional support animals do not have any special certifications. Unfortunately, some pet owners try to pass their pets off as service animals in order to bring them into pet-free areas or to avoid paying pet housing fees.

Does Service Dog Certification Really Exist?

Service dogs go through extensive training to perform their roles, but there is no such thing as service dog registration, nor is there an official database of service animals. Unfortunately, fake service dog registries do exist and many pet owners fall victim to the scam, believing they can certify their pet as a service animal to skirt the rules. 

There are a number of websites online that sell service dog certifications but they are in no way legitimate. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, service dog owners are not required to carry any kind of certification and businesses are prohibited from asking for one. Simply obtaining a certificate online and putting a service dog vest on your dog is not enough to make him a real service animal. 

What Is A Service Dog?

Service dogs are trained to perform specific tasks. They can be used to guide people who are blind, alert people who are deaf, or calm people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They can also help remind an individual to take medications, go for help in the event of a seizure, or assist with various daily tasks. The main thing to remember is that service dogs are working animals and not pets. 

Emotional support animals serve an important role of their own, but it is very different from the role played by professionally trained service dogs. Emotional support animals provide support through companionship and can help ease mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, and phobias. In order for a pet to be legally considered an emotional support animal, it must be prescribed by a licensed mental health professional for a person diagnosed with a mental illness. 

What Do the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Say?

According to the ADA[3], a service dog is, “Any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability.” 

Here are some of the tasks a real service dog might be trained to perform:

  • Opening and closing doors or retrieving objects for individuals with mobility issues
  • Guiding individuals who are visually impaired
  • Alerting people with hearing impairments to auditory signals
  • Providing stability for individuals who struggle with balance
  • Alerting to oncoming seizures and obtaining help for individuals with epilepsy
  • Reminding individuals to take their medications
  • Detecting a drop in insulin levels for diabetic individuals
  • Alerting to the oncoming attack of PTSD symptoms

Service dog training is not limited to guiding the blind, as should now be abundantly clear. While many individually trained service dogs provide assistance in the completion of daily tasks, psychiatric service dogs often provide companionship and support. In this way, the role of psychiatric service dogs overlaps to some degree with the role of an emotional support animal. 

Under Title II and TItle III of the ADA[4], emotional support animals, comfort animals, and therapy dogs are not considered service animals. While an emotional support dog’s mere presence may provide mental and emotional support, their work must be directly related to the individual’s disability for it to qualify as a legitimate service dog. Simply having a doctor’s note stating the individual’s need for an emotional support animal doesn’t turn the animal into a service animal. 

The ADA does not have specific obedience requirements for service animals, but it must be well-behaved in public. In addition to being housebroken, the animal should be able to follow basic obedience commands such as:

  • Sit
  • Stay
  • Come
  • Down
  • Leave It
  • Heel
  • Look

Again, service dog training should be catered to the individual’s disability. They are trained to take specific action when required to assist an individual with their disability. 

How to Spot a Fake Service Dog?

The ADA prohibits businesses and employers from asking too many questions about an individual’s disability or their need for a service dog which makes it easy for pet owners to pass companion pets off as service animals. In some states, the local government has passed laws designed to punish pet owners who dishonestly claim their pet is a service animal. The consequences of such dishonesty range from fines to criminal charges. 

So, how do you spot a fake service dog? First and foremost, remember that the ADA does not require a person with a disability to obtain any form of license or certification for service dogs. 

While service dogs do go through rigorous training, they are not required to be trained by a professional organization. There are certainly organizations that provide this kind of training, but the costs can be prohibitive for many service dog handlers. Consequently, the ADA allows service animals to be trained directly by their handler for both basic obedience training and for specific task training. 

Here are some signs a service dog may be a fake: 

  • The dog is being carried or pushed in a cart
  • The dog is not on a leash or has poor leash etiquette
  • The dog is barking or whining
  • The dog is distracted by its environment 
  • The dog looks nervous or seeks attention from people
  • The dog shows signs of aggression

Fake service dogs are becoming increasingly more common as more and more pet owners try to pass their pet dogs off as service animals. Unfortunately, the rise in fake service dogs has created some challenges for the individuals who really need service animals. Spam service dog companies are on the rise and people who need actual service dogs can fall victim to the scam. Just know that legitimate service dog teams will never offer any kind of certification or registry. 

How Are Service Dogs Trained? 

The truth is, there is no quick or easy way to train a service animal. Training an assistance animal takes a minimum of 120 hours plus at least 30 hours of practice in public. Not only does the dog need basic obedience training, but it must be trained to perform specific tasks consistently and without prompting. How an assistance animal is trained is best determined by the individual in consideration of his or her needs. 

Psychiatric service dogs are generally best trained by their owner because they need to form a strong bond with the handler to develop an effective method for mitigating symptoms. Spending time with the handler enables the dog to learn to recognize departures from the individual’s base state. Even so, professional service animal trainers recommend owner-trainers seek help from a professional trainer. 

Not all dogs are cut out to be service animals. In some cases, a dog may be too shy or reactive to other dogs and people. In some cases where service dogs fail out of their training they are better suited to becoming emotional support dogs. 

Here are some qualities that makes a good service dog candidate:

  • Confident and self-assured in public
  • Calm and steady temperament
  • Easy-going and eager to make friends
  • Not aggressive or reactive around other dogs
  • High food drive (for training purposes)

A service dog helps perform a wide variety of tasks specific to their individual handler. On top of these skills, a trained service dog should meet the following behavioral standards in public:

  • No aggressive behavior toward people or other dogs
  • No soliciting food or attention from other people
  • Walking calmly on a leash, staying focused on the handler
  • No urinating or defecating indoors
  • No sniffing around or barking/vocalizing in public

When it comes to federal and state laws regarding service animals, the handler is legally liable for damage incurred by a service animal. This is one of the many reasons adequate training is so important for individuals who require service animals. 

What Breeds Make Good Service Dogs?

The Americans with Disabilities Act does not specify any breeds that should or should not become service animals. Assistance animals come in all sizes, though their size should be appropriate to the specific tasks they are being trained to perform. For example, a small dog may be appropriate for providing emotional support or hearing assistance but might not be the best choice to pull a wheelchair. 

Some of the best breeds for mobility assistance include larger breeds like Bernese Mountain Dogs, Great Danes, and St. Bernards. Poodles are a versatile option because they come in three different sizes – toy, miniature, and standard. Guide dogs are typically larger, people-friendly breeds like Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, and German Shepherd Dogs. In the end, breed doesn’t matter as much as the dog’s temperament and training.  

Where to Find a Service Dog?

Any breed of dog can become a service dog with the proper training. If you find yourself in need of a specially trained service dog, you have two options. The first is to adopt a trained service dog from a reputable organization and the second is to train your own dog to perform the required tasks. Many people who require service dogs prefer the former option because training a service dog yourself can take years. 

Before you set out in search of a service dog, talk to your doctor. To qualify for a service animal, a person with a disability needs to obtain written documentation of the need from a licensed medical professional. The note should state that you are being treated for a physical or psychiatric disability that requires assistance from a service animal. 

Once you have obtained the necessary documentation, you can start looking for organizations that train service dogs. These organizations train service animals for a variety of general tasks but will also train the dog to perform tasks specific to the new handler’s disability. 

Hearing dogs are trained to assist deaf and hearing-impaired individuals while seeing-eye dogs, or guide dogs, are trained to lead the blind and visually impaired. Mobility assistance dogs can be trained to push buttons, retrieve objects, and open doors for mobility-impaired individuals. Psychiatric service dogs can help with tasks related to emotional disability such as providing tactile stimulation during a panic attack or making the handler feel safe in public. 

Final thought

Standing side by side, you may not be able to tell the difference between a real service animal and an emotional support animal, but you will be able to tell by seeing the two in action. A real service animal is focused on its task and not distracted by its environment. An actual service dog is disciplined and non-reactive, especially around other dogs and people. An emotional support animal, on the other hand, will generally act more like the pet it is. 

If you are considering getting a service animal, take the time to familiarize yourself with the provisions set forth by the ADA and know your rights. Be aware that the ADA does not provide any specific service dog requirements, nor does it register service dogs. Your best bet is to find a reputable organization (generally a charity) that trains service dogs. If that option is too expensive, you can always train your own dog to become an assistance animal. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you know if a service dog is legit?

It can be tricky, but service dogs are typically well-trained and well-behaved. If the dog is not solely focused on its specific task as related to its owner’s disability, it may not be legit.

Do service dogs need to be certified?

No. Under the ADA, real service dogs are not required to obtain or carry any kind of certification. The organizations that train service dogs have their own processes to determine whether the dog is ready for service.

Can you get a fake service dog certificate?

Yes. There are many websites online that sell fake service dog certificates and pet dog owners can obtain fake service dog vests fairly easily as well.

Is the Service Dog Certification of America legitimate?

No. There is no official database for legitimate service dogs nor are service dog handlers required to obtain or require any sort of certification.

Are emotional support animals allowed on planes?

In recent revisions to the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA), the U.S. Department of Transportation ruled that emotional support animals do not qualify as service animals and will be treated by airlines as pets.

]]>How Much Sodium Per Day To Lose Weight? Salt Intake Dailyhttps://www.healthcanal.com/life-style-fitness/how-much-sodium-lose-weight Tue, 27 Jul 2021 03:46:00 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267629Salt Intake Daily

There is currently an ongoing debate in the research community whether regulating daily salt intake can help a person lose weight. Numerous studies support the premise that high salt consumption can lead to hypertension. But with the increase in obesity in the world, studying salt intake and its influence on weight and fat metabolism has been gaining much interest.

It is a proven fact that ingesting too much salt can cause the body to retain water in its attempt to maintain homeostasis. Reducing salt intake releases excess water thus causing weight loss. This weight loss is water loss, however, not fat loss.

In addition to increasing water retention, eating too much salt can cause high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and many other health problems. Salt also desensitizes your taste buds which can affect the amount and type of food that you eat. This in turn can cause weight gain.

“Until now, we have always focused on the effect of salt on blood pressure,” says Jens Titze, MD, associate professor of medicine, molecular physiology, and biophysics at Vanderbilt University in Nashville. “We have to expand our concepts of salt and diet.[1]

More studies need to be done looking at the role of salt and hunger. According to Professor Titze, people on high salt diets also become hungrier. Over the long term, that boost in appetite could lead us to overeat and gain weight. Ghrelin is called the “hunger hormone” because it stimulates appetite, increases food intake, and promotes fat storage. How it is involved in high salt intake and appetite needs further study[1].

How Much Sodium is Too Much?

Sodium is a mineral found in table salt and is necessary for many bodily functions. Our main source of sodium in the food we eat. However, many people are getting more sodium than they need due to the large amounts found in a variety of today’s foods.

The American Heart Association recommends we eat only 1500 milligrams of sodium per day. The DGA, or Daily Guidelines for Americans, is listed at 2300 milligrams per day. The CDC reports that the average American eats 3400 milligrams per day! How is this possible?

Just look at the popular foods Americans like to eat: snacks, chips, fast food, fried foods, processed foods, and restaurant meals. These are all foods high in salt. In addition, many of these foods are also high in fat and calories. Salty foods can also make you thirsty, which can increase your intake of high-calorie beverages like soda or beer.

Some studies are now focusing on the roles of fat, high salt weight gain, and the typical American diet.

Salt And Obesity

According to the World Health Organization, there are around 2 billion overweight adults worldwide. Of those, 650 million are classified as obese. That equates to 39 percent of adults aged 18 or over who are overweight.

As of 2020, the U.S. adult obesity rate stood at 42.4 percent, the first time the national rate[2] has passed the  40 percent mark, and further evidence of the country’s obesity crisis. The national adult obesity rate has increased by 26 percent since 2008. Rates of childhood obesity are also increasing with the latest data showing that 19.3 percent of U.S. young people, ages 2 to 19, have obesity. 

Recent studies[3] have shown that high salt intake is associated with an increased risk of obesity because many people drink sugar-sweetened beverages to offset the effects of too much salt. This type of body fat accumulates around your middle. When you reduce your salt intake, you lose water but not body fat.

Obesity studies have been done with both adults and children. Results support the relationship between obesity, salt intake, and high-calorie beverages. It is unclear however whether salt intake itself causes obesity or whether a low salt diet can reduce body fat.

Another study from researchers at Beth Israel Medical Center in Boston[4] however could not prove that salt intake was directly responsible for weight gain. Their results only supported the traditional view that decreasing sodium intake is critical to managing hypertension. Clearly more studies need to be done in this area. 

Your Gut Microbiome And Sodium

In addition to influencing blood pressure, sodium may be involved with the gut microbiome and its influence on fat metabolism. Since healthy body weight is a reflection of healthy gut flora, researchers are now beginning to look at the interactions between the gut microbiome, salt intake, and weight.

The gut microbiome refers to the trillions of beneficial bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other microorganisms that normally inhabit our gastrointestinal tract. These organisms are crucial to our digestive system and to the overall health of our body.

A new study by a research group at Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin, Germany shows that high-sodium diets may kill off the beneficial bacteria in our gut possibly setting us up for weight gain. They found that a version of the good bacteria Lactobacillus found in mice is destroyed when they are fed a diet high in salt. 

Another study[5] done on mice using a high salt diet in 2019 included the rapid depletion of 90% of Lactobacillus spp. following 14 days of high sodium (5,500 mg/day)diet, indicating a low resilience of the Lactobacillus spp. to sodium.

Conversely, both animal and clinical studies from Harbin, China have shown that some lactobacilli possess an anti-obesity effect by significantly reducing body weight gain through reduced liver lipid accumulation and improved lipid metabolism of adipose tissue. By using mixed lactobacilli supplementation, the researchers[6] could manipulate the gut microbiota and its metabolites resulting in a reduction in obesity.

Dietary Considerations To Lose Weight

Avoid Processed Foods

Processed foods are notorious for containing salt and fat that add pounds to your weight if not eaten in moderation. Avoid snacks like pretzels, potato chips, salted nuts, and even some frozen foods. Go for healthy vegetables and low-fat cheese instead.

Lose Water Weight Today

 Eight things that you can do to reduce your water retention:

  • Reduce the amount of sodium you are consuming in your diet
  • Do exercises that make you sweat a lot
  • Drink more water
  • Reduce carbohydrate consumption
  • Limit processed foods and pre-packaged foods in a box, bag, or can because they often contain a lot of sodium
  • Purchase and eat daily fresh organic fruits and vegetables
  • Read food labels and choose the ones with lower sodium.
  • Check labels for “no salt added” or “low sodium”. Labels that say “low-sodium” mean the product has no more than 140 mg of sodium, “very low-sodium” has no more than 35 mg, and “sodium-free” has no more than 5 mg

Burn Off Belly Fat Naturally

  • Warm water with lemon in the morning
  • Jeera water in the morning 
  • Garlic in the morning
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Use coconut oil for cooking
  • Eat only natural sugar
  • Consume herbs 

 Try Fat Burning Drinks to Lose Weight While You Sleep

  • Greek yogurt protein shake
  • Chamomile tea
  • Cinnamon tea 
  • Soaked fenugreek water 
  • Turmeric milk 

Everyone’s body is different so the amount of daily salt intake needed to lose weight will vary from person to person. Remember there are two types of weight loss: water loss and fat loss. A healthy, whole foods diet along with good sleep habits and exercise can go a long way towards maintaining a healthy weight and body.

However, keep in mind that since the oil is a full spectrum oil it may contain 0.3% THC or less.

Their tincture is available in 500, 1,000, 2,500, and 5,000 milligrams of CBD per bottle and combines CBD with minerals, vitamins, plant proteins, and terpenes. I like that this product is non-GMO, pesticide-free, and made with industrial hemp using only organic farming practices. Also, all CBDistillery products are subject to third-party testing conducted by ProVerde Laboratories.

]]>6 Steps To Manage Weight Gain From Steroids 2021https://www.healthcanal.com/life-style-fitness/lose-weight-from-steroids Mon, 26 Jul 2021 03:34:00 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267642Manage Weight Gain From Steroids

Prescribed steroids from your doctor can help you manage conditions such as eczema, asthma, lupus, Crohn’s disease, and arthritis. However, like with most medications, steroid use comes with its side effects, one of which is weight gain. 

These tips could help you manage your weight gain from steroids without compromising their efficiency.

What Are Steroids? 

Steroids known also as corticosteroids are medications with anti-inflammatory properties. They are often variations of hormones produced by your adrenal glands[1] . For instance, steroids such as dexamethasone act by mimicking the effects of cortisol[2] in your body.

Your adrenal glands situated above your kidneys produce specific hormones such as cortisol that regulate several body functions including metabolism and stress. Taking steroids can help reduce inflammation by switching off genes[3] involved in the inflammatory response. This action is effective at reducing inflammation for chronic inflammatory conditions such as asthma. 

Also, steroids can help depress immune responses for the treatment of autoimmune diseases such as lupus[4] . Types of steroid medications include:

  • Prednisone 
  • Prednisolone
  • Methylprednisolone 
  • Hydrocortisone
  • Dexamethasone 

Many users of steroids such as prednisone find themselves gaining weight or feeling bloated[5] as a common side effect. These tips could help you watch your weight during your treatment.

6 Steps To Manage Weight Gain From Steroids 2021

Managing your weight gain from steroid use will not be an easy road. However, with some dietary changes and physical activity you could see results. These steps include:

  • Exercise more 
  • Drink lots of water 
  • High potassium low sodium diet 
  • Plan your meals 
  • Eat healthily 
  • See your doctor 
  • Wait it out 

Exercise More 

Exercising can help you manage your weight gain from steroids. However, if you are experiencing inflammation in your joints that make mobility a little difficult, that might determine which types of exercises that you can try and for how long.

If your motion is restricted due to joint inflammation, you could participate in a low-impact exercise such as walking. You might want to discuss with your healthcare provider safe exercises that you can try with your joint inflammation. 

If you do not have joint inflammation and your mobility is unhindered, you could participate in a couple of minutes of cardio workouts daily to burn calories and lose weight. Aerobics are great exercises for losing weight and help maintain your health and wellness. Weight training can also help you build and maintain muscle mass and burn fat. 

Drink Lots of Water 

One of the ways steroid medications cause weight gain is by causing fluid retention. Steroids cause water weight gain by altering your body’s salt balance and causing sodium retention, therefore, causing water retention. Soon enough, you could start gaining weight.

Drinking lots of water to help balance the salt out is a way to manage your water weight. You might also want to cut down on foods with high salt content and carbonated drinks. So, you can drop that soda bottle and pick up a water bottle instead if you would like to lose weight.

Water can also help reduce your weight gain from taking steroids by filling you up before your meal. When you drink water before your meal, the less likely you are to overeat.

High Potassium Low Sodium Diet 

Consuming a high sodium diet can increase your chances of getting fluid retention and bloating. Consider keeping your daily sodium intake under 2300mg per day[6] to control your body’s sodium levels and reduce water retention.

Sodium and potassium have a complementary relationship in your body. Therefore, taking in more potassium can help reduce your body’s sodium content. Potassium can also help your body excrete more water by encouraging urine production. A daily intake of about 4700mg[7] daily of potassium can be effective for controlling fluid retention.

Potassium-rich foods[8] that you should include in your diet to help you meet your daily needs include:

  • Bananas
  • Apricots 
  • Lima beans 
  • Raisins
  • Tomatoes
  • Milk 
  • Potatoes 

Plan Your Meals 

Meal planning and meal prepping is an effective way of controlling your daily food intake. Meal prepping can help you plan your nutritious meals and keep you from overeating. 

Instead of eating three large meals daily, consider breaking it up to six smaller meals throughout the day. That way, you can better control your increased appetite from taking steroids. Since there is a shorter gap between your meals, you will not need to indulge in unhealthy snacks. 

Meal prepping also helps with portion control. So you will not exceed your daily set limit. You could also check your calorie intake so you do not exceed your daily nutrition requirements. A low-calorie diet also helps with weight loss.

Eat Healthily 

In prepping your meals, consider eating a high-protein meal. Proteins help you feel fuller[9] and you are less likely to snack in between meals. Lean proteins can help with building and maintaining muscles especially if you are strength training. Foods that are rich in fiber are a great idea too.

Fiber-rich foods help fill you up and prevent overeating. Consider including foods such as whole grains, vegetables, and fruits in your meal plan. Foods and herbs such as garlic help in your weight loss journey. 

Cutting out heavily processed carbohydrates from your diet could help you control your weight. So, your diet should feature less junk. Reducing your consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, therefore, less fried foods, mayonnaise, butter, or margarine, could help too. 

See Your Doctor 

If you are still experiencing uncontrollable weight gain from your steroid use despite your best efforts, you might want to see your doctor. Seeing your health provider is also your best option if you are also experiencing other side effects of using steroid medications.

Your doctor might adjust your dosage and that might be enough to reduce the unpleasant side effects you might be experiencing. If that does not work, your doctor might have to change your medication altogether.

However, you should not stop taking your steroids abruptly without talking to your doctor. You might experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms[10] such as joint pain, fatigue, muscle ache, diarrhea, vomiting,  and fever when you quit steroids cold turkey. They would typically need to be tapered off slowly under your health provider’s control.

You could also try supplements as an effective choice for losing weight with your doctor’s approval. Supplements such as CBD[11] show promising results in encouraging fat loss.

Wait It Out 

If you are not on steroids long-term, you might notice an improvement in your weight after your steroids therapy ends. The water weight that you have gained from fluid retention typically goes away on its own after a while when your steroid therapy ends.  

Therefore, being patient with your body as it attempts to restore the normal order of things is essential. Your exercises and diets probably will not give you results in a day. Nevertheless, consistent efforts bring results and you will get them soon enough.

How Steroids Cause Weight Gain?

Weight gain and bloating are common side effects of steroid use. With steroid medication use, you might experience increased appetite. Therefore, you might find yourself eating more, causing you to gain weight. 

That is why meal planning and spreading out your meals throughout the day can help you manage your weight gain from using steroids. 

Steroid medications affect electrolyte balance[12] in your body. Hence, causing water retention. They can also cause fat redistribution[13] to your abdomen, face, and neck. You may develop the classical moon face from prolonged use of steroids. 

If you are receiving steroid therapy for a condition that limits your physical activity, that might cause weight gain. That is because you might not be getting enough physical activity to burn the extra calories you might be consuming.

Conclusion 

Steroids or corticosteroids are effective anti-inflammatory medications. However, you might experience some side effects with its use, especially weight gain, and fluid retention. 

Drinking water before your meal will help you stay hydrated and keep you full so that you do not overeat. Sticking to a healthy diet filled with lean protein and high fiber foods such as fruits and vegetables will also help curb your appetite and encourage weight loss.  

Exercises such as cardio and weight training depending on your physical abilities can help you burn fat. 

Taking less sodium and more potassium-rich foods could help you manage the water retention that comes with steroid therapy. Your doctor can adjust your steroid therapy to reduce the unpleasant side effects that you may be experiencing. 

At the end of your steroid therapy, the water weight will go down on its own so you might want to exercise some patience.

]]>Daily Flaxseed Use: Can It Help Me Lose Weight?https://www.healthcanal.com/life-style-fitness/flaxseeds-for-weight-loss Mon, 26 Jul 2021 03:25:00 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267659Daily Flaxseed Use

More and more people are turning to natural supplements to help with weight loss, but how do we know which ones are effective? Can flaxseed be one supplement that actually works?

CBD and weight loss have been shown to have a connection. Now, from what we have found in our research, flaxseed has a similar connection to weight loss and many other benefits.

How Much Flaxseed Per Day to Lose Weight?

Whole flaxseed[1] has been determined to have the fullest benefits for losing weight. How much of these seeds are we supposed to eat anyway? 

Multiple studies have shown that 30g[2] of flaxseeds taken over 12 weeks is significantly effective for weight loss with people who begin the weight loss process overweight or obese.

It has specifically been found in a 45 trial meta-analysis[1] that those who began with a BMI greater than 27 kg/m2 and took a minimum of 30g of whole flaxseed per day over the course of at least 12 weeks found a significant reduction in body weight, waist circumference, and body composition. 

A separate study concurs with the meta-analysis results in regards to the efficacy of 30g of flax seeds per day for 12 weeks. However, it also highlights the importance of making a lifelong lifestyle change and taking lifestyle modification[2] advice from experts in order to see the best results.

Yet another study showed significant weight loss results with participants taking 100g[3] of flaxseed daily for a total of 60 days. Obviously, there are many dosages that could benefit you when adding this plant-based ingredient to your diet. If you are wondering how much is right for you to take, your best bet is to talk to your doctor before starting to take flaxseed as a supplement.

How It Helps?

Though it is small, flaxseed contains some healthy and essential mega-ingredients! These tiny seeds pack a big punch when it comes to being a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids (specifically ALA[4]), dietary fiber, antioxidants, protein, and lignans. 

As with most supplements, medical advice is to always drink plenty of water when adding flaxseeds to your diet to maximize effects and improve your health.

Flaxseeds contain specific compounds with properties that reduce inflammation, act as antioxidants, and regulate lipids within both human and animal species. (Kuang X, Kong Y, Hu X, et al., “Dietary Flaxseed as a Strategy for Improving Human Health.” Nutrients, 2019 May 25)  

With those superpowers, flaxseed has many overall health benefits almost everyone can enjoy! 

Weight 

People who begin their journey with flaxseeds as overweight or obese have the best results in relation to weight loss. In several studies reviewed, including a meta-analysis[1], groups who took flaxseed lost more weight than any other type of control group. 

Flaxseed has proven more effective than psyllium[5], sunflower seed oil[6], and lifestyle modification[2] alone for losing weight. Making sure to use flaxseed in your foods will also help prevent weight gain. Watching calories and making sure to eat a protein-rich, fiber-loaded diet by adding flaxseeds can help you lose weight.

Body Mass Index 

BMI was improved in study participants both with and without Metabolic Syndrome[2]. In the meta-analysis study, BMI[1] was shown to be improved in groups of participants who took flaxseeds across the 45 randomized controlled trials. Your weight loss will likely be because you are losing fat. That, in turn, will lead to the improvement of your BMI, which can be a strong indicator of your overall health. 

Triglycerides 

Flaxseeds contain those powerful plant-based omega 3 fatty acids that go to work to protect your heart. The results of a second meta-analysis[7] show that triglyceride levels were improved after increasing flaxseed intake. These results are incredible because it means flaxseed may actually delay the onset of heart disease.

Cholesterol 

Those who struggle with being overweight or obese often have problems keeping cholesterol under control. In studies including a meta-analysis[7] of 62 randomized controlled trials, daily use of flax seeds was shown to improve LDL-C[7] (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol), HDL-C[5] (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol), and TC (total cholesterol) levels. Flaxseed may help lower your cholesterol when you include it in a healthy diet.

Waist Circumference 

In a meta-analysis[1], both healthy participants and those with Metabolic Syndrome showed a decrease in waist circumference after taking flaxseed. For those who don’t measure weight loss success on a scale, you’ll see yourself becoming more healthy as you lose inches when you choose to add flaxseed to your dietary intake. With its lignans, protein, fiber, and essential fatty acids, flaxseed is a supercharged ingredient for dropping a pant size.

Specific Conditions Benefited

Several health conditions have been shown to benefit from the use of flaxseed. This list is not all-encompassing, but it does show the breadth of flaxseed’s effectiveness.

Heart Conditions 

Many studies are underway to find the cardiovascular[8] benefits of taking flaxseed. Research so far has found that flaxseed benefits cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which in turn can delay or reduce the risk of heart disease[7]

Digestive Conditions 

According to the Mayo Clinic, “People use flaxseed and flaxseed oil to reduce cholesterol and blood sugar and treat digestive conditions[9].” Flaxseed contains fiber and fatty acids that help people with digestive conditions lessen their symptoms. Flaxseeds outperformed psyllium’s level of benefit for those who suffer from constipation[5].

Inflammatory Diseases 

Because of its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antispasmodic properties, research says flaxseed “offers promising potential to be developed for IBD[10].”

Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver

A study[11] has shown fatty liver grade and IL-6 improvements in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease who consumed flaxseeds with their food.

Cancer 

The properties of flaxseeds have proven to induce apoptosis[12] in cancer cells, which leads to the potential for flaxseeds to be used as anti-cancer therapy! More studies are underway to confirm this, but one study[13] has proven flaxseed’s effectiveness in destroying breast cancer cells.

Type-2 Diabetes 

When compared to psyllium as a treatment for symptoms of Type-2 Diabetes[5], flaxseeds proved to be more beneficial for improving participants’ glycemic indices, lipid levels, and fasting plasma glucose readings. 

Metabolic Syndrome (MetS)

In studies looking for the effectiveness of flaxseed when used to treat people with Metabolic Syndrome, the percentage of participants with Metabolic Syndrome decreased 32%[2] more than the control group. The participants noticed a reduction in insulin resistance, body weight, waist circumference[6], and BMI that was significantly greater in the flaxseed group than the control group.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Those who began a study with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome[14] lost significantly higher amounts of weight after taking flaxseed than the control group.

How To Use It?

Now that you know all the superpowers hidden within this little seed, I am sure you are wondering how you can use it! Incorporating whole flax seeds, which are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, other essential fatty acids, dietary fiber, lignans, and protein into your diet can be surprisingly easy.

One form of flaxseed is called partially defatted[15] flaxseed meal, in which some of the lipids have been removed. Flaxseed oil can be used in recipes, as can whole flaxseeds, when cooking. Whole flaxseeds can be ground up into what is called ground flaxseed or ground flax. Many people buy the flaxseeds whole at health food stores and use a coffee grinder to grind the seeds up fully, which makes it easy to add them to recipes you already love when starting your flaxseed supplementation. 

According to the Mayo Clinic’s website[9], “Flaxseed can be used whole or crushed, or in a powder form as meal or flour. Flaxseed oil is available in liquid and capsule form.” It would be easy to incorporate whole seeds, ground flaxseeds, or flaxseed oil into sauces, soups, or sprinkled on top of salads. You can get as creative as you want – it is your diet, after all!

Side Effects

Flaxseeds, flaxseed oil, ground flax, or any other form of flaxseeds are natural and healthy for most bodies. Of course, like anything we ingest, it could have side effects[9]. The good news, though, is that they can be easily resolved by talking with your doctor about what you are experiencing. Make sure to pay attention to your body and any allergic responses you may have to flaxseeds!

The Verdict

So, will it help you lose weight? According to our review, YES, flaxseed is most certainly beneficial for losing weight, among many other benefits, for those who are overweight or obese. Studies still need to be completed to discover more details about its benefits and long-term effects. However, it is safe to say that once you have cleared the use of flaxseeds as a dietary supplement with your doctor, you will be on your way to improving your health in a variety of systems within your body!

]]>5 Helpful Tips To Lose Weight With A Saunahttps://www.healthcanal.com/life-style-fitness/sauna-weight-loss Sun, 25 Jul 2021 14:29:00 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267627Lose Weight with A Sauna

When it comes to losing weight, there are a plethora of different ways to do it, and what is going to work for one person may be completely different from another. If you love sweating it up in the sauna, these 5 helpful tips can aid in your weight loss journey. 

Saunas originated in Northern Europe (most probably Finland) around 2000 BC[1] and they became a large part of their cultural life. In the very beginning, they functioned as kitchens, washrooms, hospitals and sometimes, during very harsh winters, they were literally the only place to live in. They even became holy places that were intertwined with spiritual beliefs and therefore became places where people were born, laid out after their death, and where all sorts of important ceremonies took place. 

Today, we use saunas to unwind and relax, mostly as a part of spa treatments or after a good workout in the gym. The heat is great for muscle relaxation and increased blood circulation[2], bringing fresh oxygen into all areas of the body more efficiently, which is why they are nowadays being used as part of many rehabilitation and therapeutic treatments.

Does Sauna Help You Lose Weight?

The short answer is: Yes, sauna sessions can most definitely be a helpful tool when trying to lose weight. It is not and cannot be the only solution, but it works really well in addition to other, already well-known healthy routines such as exercise, healthy meal plan, adequate amount of sleep, proper hydration, and working on reducing your stress levels. Everything must work in unison to be able to lose weight in the healthiest way possible, which will also help you maintain it long-term.

5 Helpful Tips To Lose Weight with A Sauna

Try Different Types of Sauna

Depending on how the room is actually heated, there are several types of sauna. These include:

Wood burning sauna[3]: Usually high in temperature and low in humidity, in these types of saunas, wood is used to heat the sauna room and sauna rocks.

Electrically heated sauna: Similar to wood-burning saunas[4], electrically-heated saunas have high temperatures and low humidity, and the room is heated by an electrical heater, usually attached to the floor.

Infrared sauna[5]: In these types of saunas, the room is not heated. Instead, special, infrared lamps heat a person’s body. The temperature is typically lower than other saunas, but the person still sweats in a similar way, getting heated inside out instead of the other way around.

Steam room[6]: High in humidity as well as temperature, steam rooms are heated with steam generators, with studies showing its benefits on the cardiovascular system[7]

All of these types can aid in weight loss, and here are some helpful tips to achieve that:

Do not Overdo It

Always make sure you are not overstaying your time in the sauna. Even if you are regularly enjoying your self-care sweating sessions, anything over 20 min is not recommended as you risk dehydration. Even the esteemed American College of Sports Medicine[8] agrees. 

If, on the other hand, you have never used a sauna before or you are just starting out, it is always better to start small and avoid using it for more than 5 to 10 minutes at a time. Also, if you have exercised beforehand, wait for at least 10-15 minutes before you enter the hot room. You do not know how your body will respond to heat and you might get dehydrated way sooner than you think, which can wreak havoc on your body[9]

The initial weight loss will mostly be just retained water, so it might be tempting to indulge in longer sessions. This is where most people have it wrong. Keep it simple and avoid dehydration by staying under 20 minutes per session. 

Allow it To Cleanse Out Toxins

Sweating in general is a body’s way to:

  • Maintain an optimal body temperature by cooling it down in hot conditions
  • React to stress and exercise
  • Get rid of toxins accumulated in your body

When you are trying to lose weight, you are working on lowering your body’s inflammation and getting rid of toxins in the most natural way possible. Hot air conditions in the sauna will make your body sweat, and therefore help flush toxins out[10]

Although we should be able to detoxify on our own every single day, it is genuinely hard to do so without a little push. Sauna sessions can definitely help. 

When your inflammation is reduced, your body can function better, faster, stronger, and overall healthier. This is how you will be more efficient in losing the excess weight that is being retained. 

Let it Help Increase Your Metabolism

When your body is exposed to intense heat or cold, it has to work much harder and your heart rate can increase by up to 30%[11]. This boosts your metabolism and helps you burn more  calories[12]. That’s why working out in cold conditions may help you lose weight as much as doing it in the heat. Depending on your body’s preferences, you might respond better to one way or another, but taking some “me time” in the sauna will definitely be more enjoyable than sitting out in the cold. 

In order to burn a calorie, heat must be released[13]. So when your body is working hard to either warm up your body or cool it down, more heat gets released, resulting in more calories being burned. This speeds up your metabolism and makes you burn calories faster and at a much more efficient rate. 

Use it For Stress Release

Spending some time in the sauna can be a real therapeutic experience, helping you relax and destress from your everyday life. The majority of people who are struggling with losing weight are under tremendous amounts of stress which keeps them in constant “fight or flight” mode[14], creating a false sense of danger which makes their bodies hold on to every little ounce of fat in order to protect itself. 

It is also stimulating highly inflammatory responses in many different areas in the body which turn on light little lightbulbs and communicate amongst each other to prevent you from turning them off quite as easily. 

That is where regularly closing your eyes and sweating it up in the sauna can come quite handy. Let yourself breathe in that hot air and use it to release all tension that is building up on the daily. You can even include some relaxing music, essential oils, or even CBD oils which are known to help with weight loss. 

Creating relaxing rituals and making them a part of your regular routine can do wonders for your overall health and wellness, helping you not only lose the unwanted pounds, but also maintain a healthy weight long-term. 

In addition to sweaty sessions, it is important to implement other healthy habits such as adding exercise prior to your self-care time, lots and lots of fluids and hydrating foods, prioritizing sleep, as well as getting lymphatic drainage massage[15] to help speed up the process. 

Be Consistent

Nothing in life works unless you stay consistent with it. Eating nutritious food, getting enough sleep, moving your body – in order to get results, none of these things can be done for a few weeks and then stopped. The same works with sauna treatments. 

You cannot do one or two and expect magical results overnight. Instead, implement them into your regular weekly schedule (2-4 times per week) and you will be amazed at what your body can do when it adapts to sweating on-demand. It is going to reduce your inflammation and flush toxins at a more efficient rate and allow you to fully reap the benefits from the moment you enter the hot room. 

All in all, sauna rooms are a great tool which can aid in weight loss as well as your overall wellness. All that is left to do is give these sweaty sessions a try.

]]>How to Lose Weight on Phentermine Fasthttps://www.healthcanal.com/life-style-fitness/fast-weight-loss-phentermine Sat, 24 Jul 2021 09:10:17 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267595Lose Weight on Phentermine Fast

Safe AND fast weight loss? Can it be true? Here we’ll lay out tips for how to maximize the efficiency of doctor-prescribed phentermine and plan for maintaining long-term weight loss results.

While countless approaches have been studied as to what’s good for weight loss, FDA-approved prescription phentermine has shown the ability to be a useful aid for those needing to lose weight.

Is Phentermine good for weight loss?

Yes! However, you DO have to use it as prescribed and combine it with dietary changes AND an exercise program in order to notice a difference in your weight

Phentermine, when you combine it with some level of an overhaul of your lifestyle, exercise, and diet, can be highly effective[1] for weight loss, particularly in patients who are obese.

Phentermine’s Best Weight Loss Buddies

Dietary/Nutrition Changes

When trying to lose weight with phentermine, you also have to make a decision for a permanent lifestyle and nutrition change. The medication is only a short-term prescription (usually a few weeks[2] maximum). You’ll need to plan for what comes next!

A study has shown that participants who do not plan for their bodies to maintain their weight loss through dietary changes after discontinuing phentermine will regain[3] any weight loss.

The number 1 thing to do to help phentermine kick you into weight loss is to drink LOTS of water! A 2010 study[4] suggests we should be drinking between 74 oz – 101 oz per day!

One of the intended effects of Phentermine is a suppressed appetite. Researchers[5] found that a group of people participating in a meal plan and taking phentermine lost 3.3% more bodyweight than a group participating in a meal plan alone. Those taking Phentermine also had reduced food cravings as well.

Once you start taking phentermine, start practicing your long-term “meal plan” for properly controlling portions and creating well-balanced meals that you’ll stay motivated to continue long after you stop taking Phentermine.

The real success with nutrition is what you’re able to maintain. 

Planning ahead for your body’s nutritional success is like planning ahead for the lifetime maintenance of a luxury car. Phentermine is what helps build your body into that beautiful shape; a lifelong nutrition plan is the “must-do” maintenance that will keep you looking and feeling like you belong in a showroom.

Talk to Your Doctor

Talking with your doctor about your desired weight loss goals, potential current medication interactions, and known side effects of phentermine is a necessary first step. Your doctor will tell you if phentermine is the right choice for your situation.

Once you have your doctor’s support, take it exactly as prescribed. Starting your plan well-informed and having it professionally monitored is a great start to boosting yourself into your new, healthier lifestyle.

Exercise Plan

Regardless of your current activity level, Phentermine can help you lose weight when combined with an exercise plan that is tailored to your safety and health. Talk with your doctor to find out exactly what that should look like for you.

There are more than enough exercise plans out there to gain health, reduce stress, and take care of your body. If you already have a favorite, go with it! Walking, running, swimming, cycling, fitness classes, and Pilates are just a few examples of ways you can get your body moving and boost your metabolism.

Frame Your Goals

When creating your expectations and goals for taking Phentermine with your doctor, make sure to determine an appropriate goal that’s within a healthy range for your body. 

Take that super vague goal of “losing weight” to new heights, and FRAME it!

Finish

Weight loss goals can be very daunting if you don’t give yourself a finish line where you can assess your progress. Knowing there’s an end in sight can provide great motivation to keep going when it gets tough!

Reachable

Making your goal reachable will not only increase your chances of success; it will also give you a mental boost when you start to question whether or not you can do it! If you decide from the beginning that your goal is within reach, you won’t be able to question yourself on it later.

Accountable

Everyone needs support when trying to reach any kind of goal. Get people around you who support what you’re doing and are willing to hold you accountable to reaching your goal. It’s especially helpful to include a behavioral specialist if you find yourself unable to keep yourself accountable, as s/he can help you understand how to improve that.

Measurable

If your goal isn’t measurable, you’ll never know if it has been met. You can measure by weight loss, body shape, clothing fit, lab work results, or any other method you choose. Just make sure whatever you choose can be made specifically measurable. That makes it easy to keep up with progress along the way, too!

Exciting

If you’re not excited or motivated to meet your goal, you’re probably NOT going to meet it. If your goal is made realistically but doesn’t hit the total weight you want to lose, realize it is a baby step. Get excited about every baby step, and you’ll be closer every time to your overall goal.

Here’s an Example

Remember that boring “lose weight” goal? Let’s FRAME it. Kick it up a notch by replacing it with something like this: “I will lose at least 15 lbs within 8 weeks by taking Phentermine each morning, following my nutrition plan daily, and exercising at least 30 minutes a day.”

Which goal shows more thought and planning? Which goal is more likely to be met? Taking more time to think through the details of a goal translates to higher levels of success in reaching that goal. 

Charge Up with Sleep

Ideally, our bodies would keep burning fat for us while we sleep, right? There are some bedtime drinks you can try that may help your body do that for you!

Drinks or not, getting enough sleep is a critical part of making sure your body is at its best. We all know how stressed out we can become when our smartphones are in need of a recharge. You wouldn’t want to start your day with your phone at 20%, would you? Don’t force your body to do that, either!

Make sure to include 7-9[6] hours of sleep almost every night. Keeping your body “charged” with sleep will help you start each day with more energy and can only help you on your road to better health.

Avoid Common Mistakes

Skipping Meals

Although it may become easier and maybe more tempting to skip meals as your appetite lessens with the use of Phentermine, don’t fall into that mistake! Your body needs you to keep eating in order to keep up your metabolism, which is your body’s food-to-energy converter. 

According to this study[7], “appropriately timed meal patterns are critical to prevent circadian desynchronization and limit metabolic risks.”

Unrealistic Expectations

Creating unrealistic expectations does nothing but sabotage your success. Saying you’d like to lose 40 lbs in 2 days is not realistic and will only make you feel like a failure when you don’t meet it.

Inconsistency with Medication

Phentermine is a stimulant medication. Taking this pill in the morning gets the biggest bang for your buck. It gives you the energy you need throughout the day to keep your lifestyle change momentum going. Taking it at the same time every morning will help you not to skip or forget the medication as well.

The Bottom Line

With doctor guidance to create a long-term plan for weight loss success, taking Phentermine is a great option for some. You’ll have an increased understanding of your own body, specific plans, and goals you can FRAME. With consistency, support, determination, and a positive attitude, you’ll be on your way to a lifetime of health.

]]>Quitting Sugar For 2 Weeks: How Much Weight Do You Lose?https://www.healthcanal.com/life-style-fitness/cutting-sugar-to-lose-weight Sat, 24 Jul 2021 08:52:00 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267597Quitting Sugar Weight Lose

There are many reasons why you should cut sugar out of your diet and losing weight is only one of them. But sugar is highly addictive and can be difficult to quit and losing weight can be stressful. In addition to a healthy diet and exercise, many people have found success using CBD

Learning how much weight you can lose by cutting out sugar might be the key to kicking the sugar habit and living a happier, healthier life. 

How Much Weight Can I Lose By Cutting Out Sugar?

How much weight you could lose by cutting sugar out of your diet depends on several factors including diet, exercise, and lifestyle. If you follow a typical Western diet that is high in sugar, you get little-to-no exercise, and you live a high-stress sedentary lifestyle, you could expect dramatic results if you quit sugar for two weeks. 

Following these guidelines[1] for healthy weight loss, you could expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week. 

Factors Affecting How Much Weight You Can Lose

Weight gain is typically caused by consuming too many calories and not getting enough exercise. So to reverse that weight gain and improve your health, you’ll need to assess the following areas.

Your Current Diet

If you eat a lot of sugary and processed foods, then cutting back will serve you well. Many processed foods are high in sugars (and calories!) and low in nutrients that your body needs. 

Take note of the foods you purchase and eat on a regular basis. If you are eating out a lot, there is a good chance you are consuming too many calories and too many added sugars. 

Your Current Level of Activity

Working a sedentary job is a common culprit for weight gain. Add to this factors such as a long commute, or a busy, irregular lifestyle and you may be at the lowest level of physical activity. 

A sedentary[2] lifestyle can cause many other health problems besides weight gain. It can be a leading risk factor for diabetes, heart disease, anxiety, and depression.

Other Lifestyle Factors

Other lifestyle factors that can affect weight gain and overall health include stress and preexisting health conditions. 

If you experience a high level of stress in your daily life, you are more prone to emotional eating and making poor dietary choices. 

Consuming alcohol and other drugs can cause weight gain and other health problems.

Why Should You Cut Sugar Out of Your Diet?

Aside from fighting unwanted weight gain, there are several great reasons to quit sugar.

Clearer, Glowing Skin 

A diet high in processed foods and refined sugar results in a poor complexion. Acne[3] and inflammation can be cleared up dramatically by reducing sugar intake and drinking more water. 

Decreased Risk of Depression

Studies[4] have shown that eating too much sugar can increase the risk of depression, especially in women. 

However, know that when you decide to cut sugar out of your diet, know that you may experience some signs of sugar withdrawals or “detox.” The most common symptoms[5] are headaches, mood swings, and shakiness. 

Decreased Risk of Diseases

A diet high in sugar has been linked to an increased risk of certain health problems[6] such as:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Cognitive problems, including dementia and Alzheimer’s
  • Colon cancer
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Obesity
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Retina, muscle, and nerve damage

Getting Rid of Sugar in Your Diet

It’s no secret that most of us are eating too much added sugar on a daily basis. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, we should be getting less than 10%[7] of our total calorie intake from sugar.

That is about 200 calories per day for someone following a 2,000 calorie-per-day diet.

Cutting out items like candy and soda isn’t enough. Neither is skipping dessert. 

Added sugars are hidden in many foods that we think of as healthy. The problem is in finding the biggest hidden offenders and cutting them out. 

Foods to Avoid

You already know that your favorite coffee from Starbucks is a sugar bomb. You also know to skip the ice cream. 

But did you know that the seemingly healthy fruit and yogurt parfait[8] from McDonald’s has 28 grams of sugar? 

Here are some other sources of added sugar:

  • Granola and trail mix
  • Nut butters
  • Smoothies and fruit bowls
  • Dressings, dips, and sauces 

Sneaky Sugar Culprits

While you should always read the label, sugar can go by many names[9]. Here are some words to watch out for when you’re checking labels:

  • Dextrose
  • Fructose 
  • Lactose 
  • Table sugar
  • Beet sugar 
  • Honey
  • Corn syrup
  • Turbinado 
  • Agave

Remember, just because it isn’t called “sugar” doesn’t mean it’s good for you.

4 Steps to Kick the Sugar Cravings Once and For All

If your body is used to eating a high sugar diet, kicking the habit can be challenging. Here are four steps to follow every day for better nutrition. 

Eat More of These Foods

Try to consume more lean protein (eggs, fish, seeds, and nuts) and high-fiber, non-starchy vegetables (broccoli, asparagus, mushrooms, peppers, and onions) with every meal. 

Complex carbohydrates such as brown rice and whole grains can be a good source of energy and fiber, but consume these in moderation. Find a more in-depth guide to carbohydrates here[10].

When you need a snack and you are craving something sweet, opt for fresh fruits such as berries, apples, or grapefruit. Natural sugar will satisfy your craving and the vitamins and minerals will keep you healthy. 

Increase Activity

If your goal is to lose weight, you need to do more than remove sugar from your diet. You need to increase your activity level. 

The good news is that you don’t have to do a bunch of high-intensity exercise in order to lose weight. It can be as easy as walking 10-15 minutes a day. 

If you are looking for a fun, low-impact challenge, start with something like this plank challenge.

Drink More Water

Want to beat the sugar cravings, lose weight and have overall better health? Drink more water. 

It’s that simple. 

Your body is made up of mostly water, so to keep it healthy and functioning well, it needs water. 

If you want to give your water some low-calorie flavor, add some slices of fresh fruit like lime and sprigs of mint.

Restrict Access to Sweets 

This may seem obvious, but it’s best to say it outright. If you want to cut out sugar, you need to make your living space a sugar-free zone. 

You can’t be tempted by high sugar snacks, ice cream, and sugary fruit drinks if you don’t buy them in the first place. 

Replace food high in sugar with food high in fiber such as vegetables, whole grain bread, and brown rice. 

You can find a guide to breaking your sugar habit in 10 days here[11].

Conclusion

How much weight you can lose by reducing your sugar consumption depends on several factors, including diet, exercise, and lifestyle. 

You could lose up to 2 pounds per week, with proper diet and exercise. But the real benefits of lowering your sugar intake may come in the form of healthy skin and decreased risk of depression and certain diseases. 

You should always consult your physician before beginning any diet or exercise program.

What Is Red Maeng Da Kratom?

The Red Maeng Da kratom[1] is one of all Maeng da variants’ most potent strains. It originated from Thailand. 

But where did Red Maeng Da kratom come from? Both kratom powders and capsules contain Kratom Powder, from kratom trees’ leaves. The plant where Red Maeng Da has been taken is naturally found from various areas in Southeast Asia. The tropical climate that can be experienced in these areas makes the kratom tree and plants grow well. 

Red Maeng Da kratom is derived from a particular horn-shaped leaf of kratom to become more specific. The leaf has been called the Mitragyna Speciosa leaf. This Mitragyna Speciosa leaf is red in color. Thus, this kratom strain is called Red Maeng Da.

Who should use red maeng da?

Red Maeng Da Effects

Using Red Maeng Da Kratom improves your body[2] functions and well-being. The following are the significant benefits of Maeng Da (red vein).

Pain Relief

The Red Maeng Da becomes highly popular because of its painkiller effect. The kratom strain affects and activates neurotransmitters such as dopamine, opiate, and serotonin. It causes a higher energy level and a happier mood. In some instances, Red Maeng Da kratom is used to treat chronic pain.

Relaxation and Stress Relief

It is said that the red Maeng Da strain kratom promotes relaxation, antidepressant, and anti-anxiety effects in the human body. These effects are also known to be caused by the reactivation of the two receptors/neurotransmitters, serotonin, and dopamine.

Euphoria

This is the state where your mood is elevated, where most people see this as a feeling of highness. However, such terms should not be taken in a literal form. Maeng Da strain only supplements the effect of being an antidepressant for someone who experiences a relatively low mood.

Stimulant Serving

As the Red Maeng Da kratom activates certain areas of the brain[3], you can become more capable of focusing on the task you found impossible to do in your regular days. According to research, this is caused by the interaction of the 7-hydroxy mitragynine with the body’s opiate receptors.

Aid for a Better Sleep

The Red Maeng Da kratom is also known for its effects on sleep[5] , especially for people who have insomnia. With the help of Red Maeng Da, which acts as a sedative, you will experience a relaxing and peaceful sleeping time.

Top Alternatives to Red Maeng Da kratom

If you are a fan of Red Maeng Da kratom, you may also be interested in Green Thai kratom. Like the classic Red Maeng Da, it is more focused on boosting your energy than the Maeng Da kratom. Thus, it is more beneficial when it is taken in the morning rather than at night.

While Red Maeng Da kratom is one of the most potent kratom strains available in the market, another popular strain of kratom that you might consider buying is the Bali kratom.

If you like to explore proprietary blends aside from Red Maeng Da kratom, Organic Kratom USA can provide you that. They also produce their products with quality and varying potency.

  • Wide range of products

  • Some products can cost higher

Organic Kratom USA[7] started operating online in 2017. They are based in Clay County of the state of Missouri. Like other kratom vendors we reviewed above, Organic Kratom USA also provides a large product selection.

Organic Kratom USA also offers free shipping if your order reaches a specific price. They usually give same-day shipping or around 24 hours, depending on when the order is made. As for their customer service, you can keep in touch with them via email or phone number.

Buying Guide

Is kratom legal in the place where you live? If not, you might get yourself into trouble. Nevertheless, kratom I legal in most of the states in the US.

Whether kratom is legal in the state where you live or not, as long as you want to buy kratom, it makes a significant difference if you buy kratom from vendors members of the American Kratom Association (AKA).  

While vendors sell relatively low-priced kratom products but still hold the quality, most companies sell low-priced kratom because they simply cannot afford the risk of spending money to secure the purity and potency of their products. 

We are not trying to put down other kratom vendors based on other countries. However, the American Kratom Association only covers kratoms within the country. Thus, buying from kratom vendors outside the United States will require you to do more extensive research.

It is always better to buy kratom from companies that make their third-party lab results available in public. Not all companies do that. It is becoming even better if you know the kratom-related terminologies to understand everything presented in the works.

Red Vein or Green Vein

There are four significant types of kratom according to their color. These are red vein, green vein, white vein, and yellow kratom. Among these colors, the most recommended beginners are the red vein and green vein. Of course, you can go in other colors if you think it suits you best.

Most reports say that red strains are best taken at night or somewhere in the evening. Meanwhile, green strains are best in the morning or anytime within the daytime. However, the main reason why this is recommended to users new to kratom is due to its gradual effect on the body than white strains.

If you want to choose red vein kratom strains, you can pick a Red Maeng Da kratom from the recommended vendors above. You may also want to consider the form of kratom. Powders are generally faster to take effect than a capsule.

Red Maeng Da Kratom Dosage

According to some Red Maeng Da kratom reviews, dosage may also be influenced by what effect you want to achieve. Your weight and physique are also other things you should consider when taking any kind of kratom.

The best thing you can do is following the dosage guidelines indicated on the product label. It usually consists of enough for an ideal adult. It will also be better to consult your doctor for your eligibility to take one as part of your routine.

Another tip is to start with a lower dose, especially in the beginning. This gives you a chance to determine the correct dosage by yourself.

It is suggested not to consume more than 5 grams of kratom to ensure your safety. Most users over 18 years old and above 60 years old use around 4 grams or lower per serving.

Potential Side Effects

When not taken accordingly, kratom, including the Red Maeng Da kratom, will cause some side effects. Some Of these effects include weight loss, which can benefit as well. You may also experience dry mouth and nausea, dizziness, or vomiting, especially if you overdose on it.

Experts say that taking a very high amount of kratom may harm you instead of giving you benefits. For example, you may experience seizures, breathing difficulties, hallucinations, and delusion. Nevertheless, the American Kratom Association regulates the production of all its members. It is only your responsibility not to overdose and takes it with proper caution.

The bottom line: Is it right for me?

If we analyze this Red Maeng Da review, we can say that it is considered one of the world’s best kratom strains. Anyone can try it, but it is best to consult your doctor before taking kratom. Nevertheless, it brings various benefits to the body. Red Maeng Da kratom’s benefits include chronic pain relief, easing of anxiety, alleviation of mood, stimulation of mood and energy levels, and treating insomnia.

Health Benefits Of PurKratom?

Research on Kratom is relatively limited. However, a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry in April 2002 suggested that the tree has powerful analgesic properties.

Because it has potential such as opiates, Kratom can show help to help patients with symptoms of withdrawal of opiates. Therefore, this activates the same brain receptor, thus providing comparable results but a much lower risk of dependence.

Here are a few possible PurKratom benefits:

  • Stress relief
  • Sleep aid
  • Anti-inflammatory[3]
  • Improved focus
  • Analgesia
  • Anti-depressant effects
  • Immune system booster

Where To Buy PurKratom Online?

Kratom is available in lots of health food and supplement shops, head shops, and online. Due to the lack of clinical studies of Kratom, reviews of its potential therapeutic effects are primarily anecdotal. As a result, if you shop for Kratom in a physical store, dealers may not be able to give you a lot of information, and if they do, it is most likely based on their personal experience. For that reason and several others, buying an online kratom can be a better choice.

Kratom’s online products come with a lot of competition. The opposition can lead to improved quality, lower prices, and additional information about the company and its origin. A great example of a trusted online kratom vendor is PurKratom.

PurKratom sells a wide range of products, both powder and capsule form, available also in a variety pack of both powder and capsule form. Also, the American Kratom Association, a trusted Kratom advocacy group, has registered PurKratom as a trusted kratom vendor. This means that all PurKratom products are certified by GMP. Good manufacturing practice (GMP) ensures that the products are manufactured and controlled with particular quality standards.

What Is Purple Carrot?

Have you ever wanted to have your meals, a food that is ready to cook be delivered to you? If yes, Purple Carrot is for you. It is a plant-based meal delivery service offering plant-based meals for people practicing a plant-based diet.

With Purple Carrot, you are allowed to pick from a wide selection of menus available. Whether it will be food for your breakfast, lunch, snacks, or dinner, they have something for you. The great thing with them is that you are allowed to have a customized or personalized menu.

In our Purple Carrot reviews and research, we are going to give you information about how it works and how it helps. Will this be a great choice for someone like you? Come and join the discussion.

Does it work for weight loss?

There is no direct study or research solely about Purple Carrot, however, science agrees that it may have an impact on your weight. For instance, a diet with low carbohydrates, and a low calorie intake may contribute in aiding weight loss. Moreover, it may keep you away from an issue regarding your health. Issues may include obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular/heart disease, high blood pressure, and chronic kidney disease.

As such, medical practitioners now consider a plant-based as an optional and supplemental treatment and/or prevention for obesity[1]. In addition, there is a systematic review of studies[2] showing that consistent consumption of a plant-based diet can lead to a short-term to moderate-term reduction in body weight as well as inflammation. Added to that is its ability to reduce the levels of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c). It is a body compound responsible for marking blood glucose among people suffering from diabetes.

Another research supports the idea. For instance, the search suggests that high fiber content found in a plant-based diet can protect a person from developing diabetes.

As for cardiovascular health, heart disease, and blood pressure, a study from the Journal of the American Heart Association[2] estimated that people opting into a plant-based diet may have a lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease for almost 19%. This is because plant-based practice reduces the risk of developing high blood pressure (hypertension). Similar benefits are found for kidney health.

All of the health conditions mentioned have an impact on your weight. Thus, meal planning might be important to you. If you decide to opt into a plant-based diet, Purple Carrot will be ready to serve.

Who Would Benefit Most From Purple Carrot?

Purple Carrot is best for those people who are a fan of a plant-based diet, especially if you do not like the hassle of going out for meal shopping. Due to the variety of options, those who love vegan types of diet will surely like what Purple Carrot offers.

Aside from that, Purple Carrot offers not only the meal delivery service, but also health benefits through its available meals. Such benefits include support for heart and kidney health, control in blood pressure, and support for weight loss.

How does Purple Carrot Work?

As mentioned in the introduction, Purple Carrot is a company offering a plant-based meal kit subscription service, delivering the meal ingredients for a specific menu you want for your diet. Each meal kit delivery service allows you to choose a serving plan.

If you are new to Purple Carrot, the first thing you should do is signing up with an account for the said meal delivery services. Upon having an account, you must choose between two-serving plans and four-serving plans. The two-serving plan delivers three or four meals per week, while the four-serving plan delivers two or three meals per week.

Moreover, the two-serving plan offers at least eight meal options/menus, while the four-serving plan offers you at least four meal options. The good thing about Purple Carrot regardless of what serving plan you want to choose is that you can see all the meal options that are coming for four weeks or one month ahead. You can then skip the week that does not offer the meals you like.

In contrast with other meal kit companies offering similar meal delivery services, Purple Carrot decides the best time to deliver your meals. Their decision will depend on your proximity to their distribution center. This saves you the hassle of calculation.

Add-Ons: Extra Meals

Isn’t it good that aside from a wide selection of menus, Purple Carrot offers more extra meal options that can serve as an add-on to your orders? For instance, those who subscribe to a two-serving plan can add an additional meal per week in a maximum of three. It can be for dinners, lunch, or breakfast extras.

Oftentimes, the meal delivery company offers two extra meal add-ons for breakfast, and also two for lunch. The commonly available meals are Peanut Butter Overnight Oats with Dried Figs and Cacao Nibs, and Kale Beet Salad with Chickpeas and Scallion Cashew Cheese.

For the breakfast meal options, the menu comes with four-serving kits, while dinners and lunch come with two-serving as for its minimum.

Support Materials & Ingredients

Aside from healthy meal ingredients sent directly to your door, Purple Carrot also makes its mark through its recipe instructions. For instance, they reduce the number of lost recipe cards through the use of recipe booklets. In addition, these plant-based recipes are also made available at their website, near the bottom of their website’s home page.

Read More:  Obamacare Turns 10. Here’s a Look at What Works and Doesn’t.

If you want to try a food that is something new, or revisit the recipes you have done in the past, always feel free to search through their database. Instructional or how-to videos are also made available at the site. All of those can easily be found in the web’s menu.

What’s The Deadline to Edit, Skip, or Cancel The Meal Plan

In terms of the deadline for canceling, editing or pausing a meal plan, Purple Carrot has a reasonable policy. As soon as you have a change of mind and want to change your meal delivery service subscription, you can do it with just one click. The same goes if you want to skip weeks. In addition, you can also pause your subscription for as long as 10 weeks, or even completely stop such a subscription.

If you decide to pause your subscription to a meal kit delivery service in a span of ten weeks, Purple Carrot will notify you through an email ten days before your subscription resumes. This way, you will have enough time to decide and do the thing you want to do such as pausing again, or changing your existing subscription.

Packaging

According to Purple Carrot reviews, Purple Carrot’s packaging is very similar to other kit delivery service companies in the sense that they do not have a shortage of plastics. However, they come with a difference.

For instance, they have fulfilled their goal of limiting the negative environmental impact of their packaging. Their meal kits are wrapped inside a cardboard box that can be easily recycled. The ingredients on the other hand are packed in plastic bags. But do not be deceived by these plastics. These are recyclable materials too.

The common feedback is that they use lots of plastics. However, this is for security purposes – to avoid the ingredients breaking down. Regardless of everything, having the fact that these plastics can be recycled is already a big thing.

Recipe Variety

If you are looking for a large selection of recipes, look no more further from Purple Carrot. They have different food options, so whether you want something for breakfast, lunch, snacks, or dinner recipes, you will surely get something from them.

In terms of flexibility in making choices, this meal delivery company wins. For instance, they offer different dishes that can accommodate your needs. Choose from dishes that are either with high protein, quick and easy, gluten-free, and soy-free.

In addition, these meals are coming from a different array of cuisines with many nutritional ingredients inside. You can choose one cuisine among beans, sweet potatoes, quinoa, kimchi, fresh spinach, and many more. In addition, they also offer the popular Middle Eastern cuisine, which is the Carrot Hummus Bowls flavored with Za’atar.

Furthermore, Purple Carrot package seasonings and spices individually. As a result, it gives customers more flexibility on how the food will taste

Easy to Prepare

The cooking process required for Purple Carrot’s meals is also a lovely feature. Whether you are next to cooking or not, Purple Carrot meals are easy to prepare. Each meal kit you buy from the company comes with recipe cards in a form of a booklet. According to consumers, the guidelines from recipe cards are written in a way that is easy to understand by everyone.

The cooking process and preparation are literally more straightforward than other companies. There is no need to buy additional kitchen accessories to cook your favorite meals!

Delivery Service

Purple Carrot offers two types of meal plans – the two-serving plan and the four-serving plan. No matter which of the two meal plans you choose, you are eligible for free shipping.

Purple Carrot’s meal kit delivery services are somewhat different. For instance, you cannot decide on the date of the delivery nor predict it. Unless it is not your first time ordering from Purple Carrot, you will not know when your order will arrive. However, we are sure that all your meals will be delivered. The company decides one for you. They base it on the nearness of your location from their centers.

Customer Service

As for the customer service, Purple Carrot also performs well. If you have questions in mind, the first thing we can recommend is checking their FAQ section. In case when you did not find the answer you are looking for, you can contact their customer service through their email, telephone number, or live chat.

If you use the lie chat customer support service, you will get an instant reply via autoresponder. It will tell you that a chat representative will be able to send you a response within around 20 minutes. However, according to one Purple Carrot review, customers usually receive a reply in less than 20 minutes.

The cooking process required for Purple Carrot’s meals is also a lovely feature. Whether you are next to cooking or not, Purple Carrot meals are easy to prepare.

The cooking process and preparation are literally more straightforward than other companies. There is no need to buy additional kitchen accessories to cook your favorite meals!

Recommendation

When compared to other companies offering plant-based meals, we strongly believe that Purple Carrot is the best for vegans. However, if you have a different type of diet, you may consider other meal kit companies.

Meanwhile, Purple Carrot is still good for those people wanting to adopt a plant-based diet. This will also give you a way where you can experiment with dishes using healthy ingredients.

Keep in mind though that a plant-based diet is not for everyone. This is not best for those who have a certain allergy, as meals may contain certain types of allergens. This diet is also limited to plants. This means that if your body needs meat, products for vegans may not be a good option to choose.

Pros

There are a couple of reasons why people love Purple Carrot. Here are some of them:

  • It’s Vegan
  • It’s organic
  • It has a wide selection of recipes
  • It’s gluten-free, soy-free, and more
  • It’s easy to prepare

Cons

Even though Purple Carrot has lots of pros to consider, some may still avoid their meal delivery service. Here are a few reasons:

  • They are not good for those who want meat
  • They are not ready to eat yet (You still have to do cooking preparation)

Purple Carrot Compared

Aside from Purple Carrot, there are also other meal delivery companies offering plant-based meal delivery service. Some of them include Home Chef, Sun Basket, EveryPlate, and Freshly.

Home Chef

Most of the customers suitable for Home Chef are those people who are picky with their food. They include meat in their dish and customers can double it further. They also offer oven-ready meals, which turn out to be easier to consume, but may be less healthy.

If you are practicing a Vegan style of diet, then Purple Carrot is more suitable for you. Though you must prepare the foods on your own, you can further customize it.

Sunbasket

Sun Basket is quite similar to the Purple Carrot. They are also having a large selection of meal options. However, some of their meal kits include meats, which is not best suitable for vegans.

Nevertheless, you can still choose vegan meals among options. Perhaps, the hassle falls onto having more meals which will turn out not to be in your best interests..

EveryPlate

EveryPlate is also considered one of the best plant-based meal kit companies offering high-quality meal delivery services. According to some delivery service companies and Purple Carrot reviews, EveryPlate comes with a more affordable price upfront.

As of writing, the total price of Purple Carrot comes lower compared to Every Plate’s, including the shipping fee. However, their package can justify its cost.

Freshly

Freshly is one of a few meal kits companies that offer a ready-to-eat or fully cooked meals. Like others, they also deliver the meals through your Door. However, you cannot practice your cooking skills, and you cannot further customize the taste.

If you are the one who loves trying to cook for yourself regardless of whether you are good at it or not, the Purple Carrot is still the best for you. Not only can you develop your cooking skills, but you can also customize your chosen plant-based meals.

Procana CBD Products Reviews

CBD Complete Tincture

CBD Complete Tincture

Passionate in CBD oil but you are not sure where to start? Procana CBD oil tinctures present you with a more customized product selection.

Procana offers two types of CBD tinctures: CBD oil tinctures, and Hemp oil tinctures. Both of them used olive oil as oil carriers.

CBD oil tinctures are in a form of CBD pure isolate. It has three variants with varying CBD content. The three variants are CBD Balance containing 240 mg of CBD (8 mg/serving), CBD Complete containing 600 mg (20 mg/serving), and CBD Ultra containing 1500 mg (50 mg/serving), where ultra CBD has maximum strength.

On the other hand, hemp oil tinctures do not only contain Cbd, but also other phytocannabinoids like THC and CBG. As a result, it becomes full-spectrum hemp.

Hemp oil tinctures also contain a number of fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6. Moreover, the product features a cannabidiol and cannabigerol tincture with a ratio of 1:1.

This cannabigerol or CBG is a type of cannabinoid known for its power to reduce inflammation and relieve pain. In addition, it has the capability to slow down the multiplication of cancer cells.

As for the CBD oil tincture’s health benefits, many users report that they experience less stress and anxiety as well as an improvement to their mood. However, it is worth noting that it does not cure nor treat any mental condition. Instead, it performs well when it comes to dealing with stresses and mental discomfort.

Procana CBD Complete SoftGel

Procana CBD Complete SoftGel

Procana CBD complete is in the midst of Procana CBD dosage. This is perfect for an average CBD user.

We mentioned CBD complete in Procana CBD oil. However, another Procana CBD product has been labeled as complete. The CBD softgel capsules have the same variant as those with the oils.

The Procana CBD Complete Softgel capsule was made through a pure isolated CBD, which was derived from hemp. Each bottle contains 30 softgel with a total of 600mg Active CBD — 20 mg of CBD per capsule.

As for the benefits, many of its users report an improvement in mood and sleep patterns[1]. The suggested dosage  for Procana CBD Complete Softgel is to take one capsule a day. If you crave for faster bodily reaction, you can pick oil tinctures, which you can insert directly under your tongue.

CBD Balance Fruit Chews

CBD Balance Fruit Chews

If you are looking for a CBD product that contains a controlled dosage to ensure that your endocannabinoid system stays healthy, you can definitely choose Procana Gummies.

Another excellent product of Procana is their CBD gummies called CBD Fruit Chews. Here, you have two options — 300 mg and 750 mg. Both of them contain 30 chews. If you take one chew per day, then you will have a one-month supply per bottle.

Moreover, each bottle contains gummies with assorted flavors. The available flavors are grape, strawberry, and orange.

As for their difference, the 300 mg contains 10 mg of CBD per chew, while the 750 mg contains 25 mg of CBD. Regardless of whichever you choose between the two, you will still get its benefits — balancing your endocannabinoid system[2].

 Disposable Vaporizer

Disposable Vaporizer

It has been found out that CBD becomes more effective and has faster reactivity if you choose vaping. If you want delicious e-liquids that offer you many health benefits, vape pens and vape cartridges are the best options.

Procana, like other brands selling CBD vape products, also offers both vape pens and cartridges. However, Procana vape products come in different flavors. 

There are four available flavors for this product namely tangie, classic OG, smooth vanilla, and fresh menthol. Whichever you choose, you will get the same amount of CBD, (200 mg).

Procana Vape pen’s Vaporizers pre-charged upon order. Therefore, you can use it right away — the moment it arrives at your given address. All you have to do is place it on your lips, and then start your vaping process[3].

With Procana vape pens, you can be very flexible with your CBD dosage. Furthermore, this vaping product is extremely portable. No more buttons, no more lengthy assembly and charging.

Procana cartridges, on the other hand, are highly compatible with their vape pens. The way that it works is the same as how you use their vape pens (unless you buy  a vape pen from other brands.)

If you purchased a vape pen from other CBD brands available, you may or may not have to press a button. Therefore, for your convenience, order both pens and cartridges from Procana.

CBD for Pets

CBD For Pets

This is rare — A company that has a wide variety of CBD options for pets. It comes with different potency formulas, depending on how big they are.

The best thing about Procana pet products is that you do not have to overthink about how to give CBD to your pets without ruining their health. Specifically, the company offers you six CBD pet product options. Which one should you buy? That will depend on your decision on certain conditions.

There are two major types of CBD for pet products available at Procana. These are the oil tinctures and the softgel capsules. The oil tinctures come in five classes with varying CBD dosage, depending on your pet’s weight.

If you have a cat[4], you will only have one option — Mini Breed Dog & Cat CBD. You can also buy this one if you have a dog[5] weighing 12 pounds and below. 

On the other hand, for those who have dog collections, you have four more options left: small, medium, large, and extra-large. The Small Breed Dog CBD is good for dogs weighing 12-25 pounds; the Medium Breed Dog CBD is best for dogs weighing 25-50 pounds; the Large Breed Dog CBD is perfect for dogs weighing 50-100 pounds; the Extra Large Breed Dog CBD is an excellent option for dogs weighing 100 pounds and above.

All of these pet oil tinctures are peanut butter flavored. In case your dog does not like the peanut butter flavor, you can give them the Vet Formula softgels. This is best for dogs weighing over 100 pounds.

Other products

It seems like we already mentioned too many CBD products. Yet, we have difficulty finishing since Procana literally has many things to offer.

The Procana CBD Balance softgels and CBD Ultra capsules are great options if you want to consume lower or higher doses than the regular CBD product. Procana also offers CBD that specializes in sleep concerns.

Procana brings you their Nighttime. It comes from two different and popular product types — oil tincture and softgels. Both products contain a total of 400 mg of CBD (15 mg of CBD every take.)

Taking  Procana CBD PM Night-Time pills and tinctures around 45 minutes before your bedtime (applicable to both pills and tincture.) They contain Melatonin along with CBD work as a  promoter to get better sleep

The company also provides CBD Topicals. At present, there are two different topical products with two Variants that you can take. These two products are Arnica Spray and Arnica Roll-on.

At first, only a 375 mg CBD Arnica Spray and a 250 mg CBD Arnica Roll-on are available. Later on, they introduced a new variant labeled as Extra Strength. The CBD Arnica Spray Extra Strength contains 750 mg of CBD, while the CBD Arnica Roll-on contains 500 mg of CBD.

Anyone can use CBD especially if you are experiencing muscle and joint pains. This is more beneficial to people who have an on-the-go lifestyle like athletes. Aside from pain relief, it can also be helpful for minor bruises, swelling, and stiffness.

In using these types of products, make sure that you shake the bottle first. In addition, do not rinse it after applying.

What You Like About Brand? 

Third-Party Testing

Receptra takes its products to a third-party lab for testing. The use of other labs for testing helps eliminate any doubt about the products’ safety and efficacy. 

These third-party labs will test for heavy metals, microbes, terpenes, and cannabinoid concentrations. At the end of it all, Receptra receives a Certificate of Analysis from the labs. 

Receptra will include QR codes on the product packages linked to the third-party results[1]. The aim is to help the user learn more about the product on their own. 

Receptra is also cGMP certified[2], meaning it has the best environment for making the best CBD products in addition to third-party lab testing. 

Extraction Methods

Receptra Natural relies on using cold ethanol extraction for getting their hemp extract. 

Using ethanol is seen as an efficient and clean method for making sure the company has high-quality CBD oils at the end of the process. 

The CBD oil Receptra Naturals will have gone through nine filtration stages before purification to remove residual solvents that might be remaining in the CBD oils. 

Once purification is done, the Receptra Naturals plus hemp CBD oil will then be used in a wide range of Receptra Natural CBD products. 

Receptra Naturals is always improving its cold ethanol extraction method to ensure the Receptra CBD oil from the hemp extract will be of the best quality. 

Sourcing Methods

Receptra Naturals relies on family farms in Colorado to provide the hemp necessary for its operations. The amount of hemp the company uses varies from year to year, depending on demand. The farmers’ organic growing practices for the hemp plant mean that the company ends up with the best source materials. 

To make it better, a hemp plant would be handpicked when it is harvest time. As such, it would be easier to decide what hemp flower would be suitable to make which CBD product. 

Such a method means that Receptra prioritizes quality over anything when sourcing materials for CBD oil. It is why more other companies are also opting for organic growing practices. 

Receptra has the same standards when adding other ingredients to make different products. Let us say the company is making a product for an active lifestyle; the choice of other ingredients also has to meet its quality standards. 

Some of the Receptra active ingredients other than CBD oils include essential oils, carrier oils, and more. All the ingredients must adhere to the cGMP guidelines. 

Transparency

CBD products without proper sensitization can lead to abuse. It is why Receptra Naturals has an interactive COA platform that teaches people about the use of CBD and related products. 

From this information on their range of products, you would know what to choose for an active lifestyle, sleep, headaches, and general health and wellness. 

To review Receptra Natural products, you need to look at what other people say about the products. You will quickly notice the brand has invested a lot in transparency. It is why any Receptra Naturals CBD oil review would be positive. 

The QR codes on the packaging help you learn more about the product. This includes Receptra active ingredients and the tests done by other labs other than Receptra.

]]>How Long Does It Take To Notice Work-out Results?https://www.healthcanal.com/life-style-fitness/how-long-it-take-to-see-workout-result Tue, 20 Jul 2021 14:31:00 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267467how long does it take to see weight loss results from working out

When starting your fitness journey, you will naturally wonder how long it will take you to notice results. Even more so, if you’ve already planned to include some helpful tools like CBD oils to speed up the process. 

How Long Does It Take To See The Result: No Size Fits All

Although it would be absolutely amazing if there was a specific set of rules everyone would follow and achieve results overnight, the real answer here is that no size fits all. 

Everyone’s body is different and responds differently to even the most basic exercises, such as push-ups and planks. The reasons for it are vast, and here are some of the most important ones to note:

Starting point 

How fast you’ll see results will definitely be different if you’re only just beginning or if you’re coming back from a short break. Muscle memory[1] is a real thing and it plays a huge role in how fast your body will respond to exercise. If you’ve worked out before and you’ve developed a certain baseline for your muscles, once you start working out again, they’ll quickly get back into their familiar routine, bringing you those results much faster. 

On the other hand, if you’ve never worked out before, your body needs to figure out what it’s doing and your muscles need to adapt to the stress, learning when to push and pull, how to activate specific muscle fibers, and how to rest and recover, so they’re able to grow, burn fat, and increase blood flow. 

Age, Genetics, and Gender

Even though you might see 50-year-olds performing hard exercises and looking better than some 20-year-olds, they do have to work twice (if not three times) as hard as the younger folks to see results and maintain their level of fitness day after day after day. 

Unfortunately, age does matter. So do genetics and gender. Younger bodies generally perform better, adapt faster, and show results much quicker. Add to that a family history of active individuals with fit lifestyles and you got yourself a group of people who’ll go to the gym for a month and already look completely different than they did when they started. 

Gender also plays a role. Women are less likely to see changes faster because of their hormonal profile[2], which changes every single day, depending on which part of their menstrual cycle they’re in. This can severely impact their exercise level, endurance, strength, fatigue, and even recovery rate. All of this makes any kinds of predictions on when you’ll be able to see results completely useless. 

Men, on the other hand, don’t have a highly variable hormonal profile and are therefore usually those whose results show faster. And since their bodies can endure surviving on really low body fat percentages, their muscles will pop out with much higher emphasis, making the changes clearly visible. 

Type of Exercise

Just like there’s not one diet that works for everyone, no one way of working out will be beneficial to everyone. We’re all differently built, with different muscle fibers that activate and react completely differently, so it’s only natural that one person may thrive off of a specific workout regimen while another person might find it counterproductive. 

It’s important to discover what type of exercise works best for your body and level, brings the least amount of stress into your body, doesn’t put too much pressure on your joints and tendons, and allows your muscles enough time and energy to recover, rest, and recuperate after a tough session while maximizing your training potential. 

Sometimes it’s as simple as doing the thing you love and your body enjoying it, and other times it takes a bit of trial and error until you get it right. 

Commitment

How committed you are to your training regimen and everything else around it greatly impacts how quickly you’ll see your results. Are you prioritizing sleep, paying attention to your stress levels, implementing self-care routines, moving your body and adding in extra steps to your day, and choosing healthier food options? 

If the answer is yes, you’re more likely to see results faster as your body will work in a minimally inflamed state and be able to focus on burning unnecessary fat and growing muscles, increasing range of motion and flexibility, as well as promoting faster recovery rates and cell regeneration. 

If the answer is “not really”, that’s already telling you a lot. You cannot expect seeing results if all you’re focusing on is working out alone. You have to put in the work in all the other areas as well and let everything combined do its magic. There’s no amount of squats or push-ups you can do that will trump over having frozen pizza five days a week. 

Attitude

Another important aspect of working out that will impact how fast you’ll be able to see results is your attitude towards working out itself. If you’re heading into your workout already hating the fact that you have to do it, you’ll subconsciously train with less intensity and focus, making yourself more vulnerable to injuries, as well as slowing down your progress. 

However, if you’re loving your workouts and actually look forward to sweating in the gym or shaking when holding those long yoga poses, you’ll give your 100% every single time and increase your chances of seeing results much quicker. 

It’s incredible how our mindset can influence our actions, so it’s important to find the type of exercise that works best for you and the one you’ll fall in love with, so you’re able to stick to it and see progress. 

The Dangers of Quick Results

You might be triggered by the media with “detox teas” and “waist trainers” which promise fascinating results in only 5 days, but in reality, anything that yields results that fast is only going to hurt you in the long run. 

Initially, as your body starts moving and your metabolism starts improving, it’s normal to lose a few pounds of water, reducing puffiness and making you look slimmer in the matter of days. Once this part regulates, your body will plateau and look pretty much the same for quite some time until your inner composition starts to change and your muscle mass increases while your body fat decreases. 

Any other scenario is not allowing your body to do what it needs to do to adapt at its own pace, signaling some sort of danger and activating your “fight or flight mode” which will only make your body hold on to those fat deposits even more as it’s fighting for survival. For your body, whether you’re being attacked by a lion or overexercising and undereating; it’s the same. 

And once you’re in that situation, your body will start asking for more food in shorter increments (which can lead to binge eating) as well as more frequent rest periods (which leads to overworked adrenal glands and hormonal imbalance). And that’s how the vicious cycle begins, and it’s really hard to get out of. 

Conclusion

All in all, when it comes to working out and seeing results, it depends on a plethora of factors. From age and gender to exercise type and your attitude, they all work in unison to create your ideal working out schedule that will yield results in the healthy and optimal timeframe for your specific situation. Don’t compare yourself to others and focus on getting the most out of every single workout you do – that’s all you need to see results.

To understand the somatic nervous system, let’s run a little experiment. First, raise your hand. Now, lower it back down. You have just witnessed the somatic nervous system in action.

Your brain, more technically the central nervous system, is where thinking takes place. However, it’s the somatic nervous system that allows you to turn thought into motion, as well as allowing you to sense your environment.

What is the Somatic Nervous System?

The somatic nervous system (SNS) consists primarily of 31 pairs of spinal nerves and 12 pairs of cranial nerves. It connects the central nervous system (CNS), your brain, and spinal cord, to the rest of your body, communicating sensory and motor signals. 

To understand what that means a little more clearly, imagine a cold glass of water. If you touch it, sensory neurons in your fingers pick up that sensation and transmit it to your brain. You decide to pick it up, sending another signal down to your hand. 

That signal gets transmitted to the skeletal muscles in your arm and hand, the muscles that you use for voluntary and reflex movements. All of those signals are traveling through the somatic nervous system.[1]

As we’ve mentioned, signals are processed in the CNS[2], the brain. In addition, 12 pairs of nerves that are part of the SNS run to the ears, eyes, and mouth. Those pairs are called:

  • Olfactory nerves
  • Optic nerve 
  • Oculomotor nerves 
  • Trochlear nerves
  • Trigeminal
  • Abducens
  • Facial 
  • Vestibulocochlear
  • Glossopharyngeal
  • Vagus
  • Spinal accessory
  • Hypoglossal

Most of the rest of the SNS, however, is part of the peripheral nervous system[3].

Peripheral nervous system

Most of the nerves that aren’t part of the brain and spinal cord belong to the peripheral nervous system[4]. Most of your organs, including your heart and lungs, are connected by the autonomic peripheral nervous system. They don’t get involved in the SNS. 

All the nerves in the rest of the body do. 31 pairs of nerves run from your spinal cord and down your spinal column. One nerve from the pair transmits signals from sensory organs up to the brain, while the other sends signals down to motor neurons. From the spine, nerves branch out to your arms and legs. There are:

  • 8 cervical nerves
  • 12 thoracic nerves
  • 5 lumbar nerves
  • 5 sacral nerves
  • And 1 coccygeal nerve

Nerves that transmit signals to the brain are called afferent nerves. Pain relievers and medications for nerve pain work partly by stopping those signals. Those that transmit signals to motor neurons are called efferent nerves. 

It takes only a fraction of a second for signals to travel back and forth from the brain. However, we can actually respond even faster, as sometimes signals travel right from sensory neurons to motor neurons, causing a muscle contraction. This automatic response is better known as a reflex.

Voluntary vs Reflex Actions

Your body can be separated in broad strokes between the aspects you can consciously control and those you cannot. An example of something you can’t consciously control might be your digestive system. Most of what the somatic nervous system does, however, is all about voluntary actions, things you decide to do.

In some circumstances, though, your SNS will act automatically. It’s generally the same nerves and neurons involved. However, sometimes something sudden or serious has happened, so there needs to be a quick reaction. 

We’ve all experienced this, for example when touching a hot stove accidentally. You reflexively flinch away from the pain and heat that might damage your skin. In the time it takes for a signal to make it to your brain and then come back, you might have quite a serious burn.

In order to react more quickly, reflexes[5] take a shortcut. Rather than going to the brain, the signal makes a shorter trip to your spinal column. There, the signal goes right from the afferent nerve to the efferent nerve, from sense to motion without stopping to think. This process is called the reflex arc.

Another classic example is when the doctor taps your knee so that your leg jumps. The sensory neuron connects right to the motor neuron, so the reflex happens as quickly as possible. 

Nerves and Neurons

One nerve[6] is made up of millions of specialized cells called neurons, all they do is pass electrical signals from one to the next. Neurons have all the same things a cell normally does. It has a nucleus, mitochondria, and so forth. However, a neuron also has some unique equipment.

A neuron looks sort of like a balloon at the end of a string. The balloon is the cell’s nucleus. Coming off the nucleus, like dog hair stuck to the plastic of the balloon with static electricity, are fine little branches called dendrites.  

Dendrites get tangled up with other neurons and are used to receive signals from further up the line. The long string dangling down from the balloon is something called an axon. Once the neuron has received a signal through the dendrites, it flows down the axon, where it gets passed to the next neuron.

Strings of neurons come together to form fibers. Bundles of those fibers are what makeup nerves. 

The Autonomic Nervous System

The somatic nervous system covers voluntary actions and reflexes. However, there are a lot of things going on in our body that need to be regulated, but that you can’t control consciously. For example, you can’t speed up your metabolism just by thinking about it. No matter how hard you concentrate, you probably can’t change the balance of hormones in your body. All of those processes that you’re not conscious of form the autonomic nervous system (ANS). 

It’s made up of neurons just like the somatic nervous system, but it reacts and operates differently. Rather than moving around and sensing things, the autonomic nervous system[7] is mostly concerned with homeostasis[8].

To call homeostasis a balance between the different bodily systems would be a little simplistic, but that’s sort of the idea. In order to be healthy and live our lives, everything in our body has to work together smoothly. However, the balance point is constantly shifting as we react to our environment. Homeostasis isn’t one thing, therefore, but a range in which you can operate healthily.

Sympathetic and Parasympathetic

The ANS is broadly divided into two parts, called the sympathetic and parasympathetic[9] nervous systems. The sympathetic nervous controls things like:

  • Heart rate
  • Perspiration
  • Pupil dilation
  • Blood vessel constriction or dilation
  • Increased metabolism

That’s just a shortlist. The sympathetic nervous system is also associated with the flight-or-fight response. Danger causes your heart rate to increase, your lungs open up, and a bunch of other changes, all regulated by the ANS.

The parasympathetic nervous system is further divided into restorative and defensive systems. The defensive system is also associated with the fight-or-flight reaction, reducing function when the sympathetic system starts revving things up.

The restorative system takes over once the danger is past. When your heart rate slows down, it’s because the sympathetic system is chilling out, while the restorative system takes over to clean up after the red alert.

Conclusion

The nervous system is probably the most complicated part of the body. There is a lot more to it than whatever is taking up space in your skull. It touches every part of your body and it’s what sets everything in motion. The part that literally gets you moving, however, is the somatic nervous system.

What You Like About Sol CBD?

Hemp source

The only reference to the source of Sol CBD hemp is mentioned in the product description of CBD capsules and states that it contains non-GMO industrial hemp grown in the United States. However, it is unclear whether all of their CBD extracts come from the same location

Extraction method

The cannabidiol is then extracted using carbon dioxide, which is widely believed to be the best way to maintain the effectiveness of CBD as it is eliminated from hemp. One note: the most efficient type of CO2 extraction is known as “supercritical,” but we cannot tell if Sol CBD uses a supercritical or standard CO2 extraction method. Their educational articles focus on supercritical extraction as the gold standard, but the company doesn’t really come out and say that’s how they use it. Either way, their desire for the CO2 extraction process is good.

Transparency

There aren’t many third-party tests on Sol CBD products, but there are some reports that third-party labs maintain an eye on those products, most of which are THC-related in those products’ configuration. The company guarantees that there are no traces of it in their products. If you think about it, it couldn’t even be in the market if it were.

Product range

Sol CBD focuses on quality rather than quantity. You won’t find dozens of products in their range, just about 10.

Other common products include various tinctures, especially pet tinctures, balms, and body care products. Each product has different strengths, so you want to choose the optimal supplement based on your personal needs. There are actually quite a few flavors to choose from. There are no second alternatives for determining the size.

Money-back guarantee

When you try SOL CBD oil for the first time, there is usually doubt and fear that it may not work for you. If you buy any of their products and are not satisfied with the results you get, you can get it back and get your money back. Sol CBD solves this problem by providing a 60-day money-back guarantee.

Customer service

Providing excellent customer support is a focus of this brand. In addition to sending an email, you can speak to one of their representatives on-site. Customer support is friendly and knowledgeable. They have an initial interaction with you by browsing the website – a chat popup will open asking if there is anything you want. You can minimize it, and it won’t bother you again. However, you could also benefit if something is unclear.

You can also get in touch with Sol CBD by phone – 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST, Monday to Friday. Sol CBD is also very active on social media – Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and Instagram. You can always contact the company if you are unsure what type of CBD product or dosage you need. You will receive a suitable solution that is tailored to your personal needs.

SOL CBD Liposomal CBD

SOL CBD Liposomal CBD

20% Off Coupon: “HEALTHCANAL”

Perhaps the most remarkable product in Sol CBD’s whole adventure is the liposomal CBD formula. Sol was one of the first companies in the CBD oil world to offer these products. Made water-soluble CBD, soluble CBD oil with no synthetic, genetically modified, or toxic ingredients.

Sol CBD Liposomes is a relatively new product on the market, and SOL CBD is at the forefront. A CBD liposome is a CBD oil that can dissolve in water. First of all, this comes in handy when you need to make CBD drinks because you don’t just like the taste of hemp.

CBD is used to fill a liquid “foam” called a liposome. Bubbles (sometimes defined as spheres) are made from phospholipids similar to those that make up the body’s cell membranes. Because liposomes are lipophilic and water-soluble, they are easily well known to the body without bypassing the liver, where cannabidiol is generally sent for degradation. Still, instead, liposomes are in the intestine. It goes directly, where it dissolves quickly, and the CBD is absorbed.

This Sol CBD liposomal product is famous for dogs and cats. Liposomes are delivery vehicles that effectively transport substances into the body. There is a positive outlook for pet CBD oils. However, some research has found that CBD is orally absorbed in cats and cats. Dogs are low and can cause liver complications.

]]>10 Things That Matter About Psychoactive Drugshttps://www.healthcanal.com/mental-health-behavior/psychoactive-drugs Mon, 19 Jul 2021 09:37:00 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=26742010 Things That Matter About Psychoactive Drugs

The World Health Organization (WHO)  estimates that about 270 million people[1] globally have used psychoactive drugs in the past year. It is also estimated that drug use results in about 0.5 million deaths annually.  

Learning more about psychoactive drugs and how they affect humans could help reduce their negative societal impact.

10 Things That Matter About Psychoactive Drugs

Psychoactive drugs affect your mental state by altering your brain and nerve function. Factors such as your age, type, and quality of the drugs could affect how it interacts with your body. 

Taking psychoactive or psychotropic drugs could affect your mood, consciousness, and perception of your environment. The intoxicating effects of psychoactive drugs are why many people take them.

If you are wondering what psychoactive drugs are, we will answer your questions. A psychoactive drug alters your brain chemistry and function. Drugs that fall under the psychoactive category are not limited to the big-name hard drugs and you could be guilty of consuming psychotropic drugs daily. Alcohol, tobacco, and even coffee are classified as psychoactive drugs because they can alter your brain chemistry or influence your central nervous system (CNS). 

Psychoactive drugs have several applications in medical care. Some psychoactive substances such as CBD are used as medications for the management of anxiety disorders and pain.

However, there are risks to consuming psychoactive drugs because of how they interact with your body. That is why you should never take prescription psychoactive medication not prescribed by your doctor even if you have access to them. 

Your Age

It is common knowledge that lots of drug users start using it in their teens. The average age where people first start using drugs is between 12–14 years[2] when the brain is not fully developed. Starting so early could have negative consequences for your mental development. 

During most of your late teen and early adult years, your brain is still getting developed. Persistent exposure to high doses of psychotropic drugs during your formative years could interfere with proper brain development. Therefore, you could see some harmful effects of psychoactive substance use in adolescents that you might not see with later exposure. 

Teens and children who abuse psychotropic drugs might experience cognitive and behavioral issues[3]. These effects of drug use might impact academic performance negatively. Kids this young are also exposed to diseases, accidents, and possible overdose from abuse of a psychoactive drug. 

Early exposure to psychoactive substances could also encourage drug dependence in later years.

Route of Administration 

The quicker the psychoactive substance can get to your brain, the more likely it is that it will become an addiction. The route of administration of a psychoactive drug affects how quickly it gets to your brain and neurons. 

Injections might seem like the fastest route but they are not. Drugs administered through intravenous injections have to make it through to your heart and your lungs before getting to your brain. This journey through your circulatory system is responsible for the slight delay in response.  

However, psychoactive substances taken through intravenous injections are still one of the fastest acting and you could begin to feel its effects 15 – 30 seconds after[4].  Intramuscular and subcutaneous injections might take a few minutes to act. 

Inhalation is the fastest route for psychoactive substances and you could feel the effects as early as 7 – 10 seconds after.  Smoking, snorting, and inhaling, all fall under this category. However, inhalation could lead to cardiovascular effects such as increased heart rate and myocardial infarction. It could also damage your nasal mucosa.

Other examples of routes of administering psychoactive substances include oral, sublingual, and transcutaneous. 

Purity 

It is safe to assume that the purer the substance, the greater its effects on your mental state. This rule applies to psychoactive substances too. Pure heroin has a greater psychotropic effect than heroin mixed with fillers such as talcum powder.

At several points in the supply chain, dealers mix their drugs with fillers to maximize profits. However, users are not usually too happy with this because they require a larger quantity to get high and prevent withdrawal symptoms. 

To tackle this challenge of dissatisfied customers, dealers are mixing drugs like heroin with other drugs such as fentanyl. Using drugs like fentanyl to increase the potency of opioid drugs is one of the reasons for the increasing number of deaths from an opioid overdose. 

Fentanyl is super potent and a tiny amount like a grain of salt can kill a few people. That is why some countries have decided to legalize opioids so people can have access to pure morphine and heroin which is far safer than fentanyl tainted products. 

Half-life 

The half-life of a drug is how quickly it reduces to half of its original concentration in your body. This figure estimates how quickly your body clears the drug from your system. 

Other factors such as how often you use the said drug and your body metabolism will affect drug clearance in your body. Drugs with a shorter half-life will get cleared from your body quickly while you will feel the effects of drugs with a longer half-life for longer. 

Psychoactive drugs with a shorter half-life such as heroin for 2 – 6 minutes and cocaine for about 50 minutes[5] might cause you to crave more much sooner as the effects wear off. They act rapidly to get you high, followed closely by a crash. The crash phase is often the direct opposite of the high.

To keep these effects for longer, users often compulsively seek out such drugs, therefore, it could lead to addiction.

Longer-acting psychoactive drugs due to their longer half-life include methamphetamine, MDMA, and methadone. However, these psychoactive drugs are not without their harmful effects. They might take a little longer to start working and it is not unusual for people to take on more doses or mix it with alcohol to set it off. This practice is dangerous and could be fatal. 

You could also experience residual effects of these long-acting drugs[6] such as aggressiveness and hostile behavior. 

Source 

Psychoactive drugs could be gotten from plants or they could be manufactured in a laboratory. 

Plant-sourced psychoactive drugs include cocaine, morphine, codeine, and marijuana. 

Years of selective genetic engineering have helped create stronger strains of marijuana. Therefore, marijuana on the market these days contains a higher concentration of THC, the psychoactive component.

Designer drugs, created in labs to mimic the effects of naturally occurring psychoactive drugs, have been increasing since they made their first appearance in the United States in 2009[7]. These synthetic drugs include bath salts, ecstasy, and spice.  

Synthetic drugs known also as legal highs are made to bypass regulations restricting controlled substances. However, behind their colorful appearance and fun names lie a hidden danger. 

Many users of these drugs have no idea what exactly they are taking. Furthermore, their effects can be pretty dangerous especially when combined with alcohol. These effects[8] include aggressiveness, seizures, violence, paranoia, coma, and death. 

Set and Setting 

Set and setting[9] are factors that affect your response to psychoactive drugs. These factors could be psychological, social, or cultural.

The set includes your preparation, intentions, expectations, and personality. Set also includes biological factors such as your genes that create selective responsiveness to substances. Your brain chemistry and overall body physiology can influence how you respond to drugs.

On the other hand, the setting includes your social, physical, and cultural environment. A better understanding of how the set and setting influences drug use could help reduce drug harm and increase drug efficacy.

Poly-Drug Use

Many young people are likely to use multiple psychoactive substances simultaneously. Mixing different psychoactive substances is much easier with suspicious drug cocktails available for purchase. 

These mixtures can produce a greater high than the component drugs would when isolated. This feature is known as potentiation[10]. However, these mixtures can be unpredictable and could result in death. A large number of drug-related incidents involve people who combine several drugs and alcohol. 

Refinement and Extraction 

The extraction and refinement process to produce drugs from their plant source often concentrates the active ingredient. 

Therefore, you are likely to have a stronger reaction to crack or refined mescaline than you would if you chewed a coca leaf or took a piece of cactus.

Potency 

A more potent drug is likely to have a stronger effect on you. Most psychoactive drugs act by stimulating dopamine release in your brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter involved in reward, pleasure, and aversion.  

However, you cannot determine the potency of illicit drugs.

Type of Drug 

Psychoactive drugs can be classified based on how they interact with your central nervous system (CNS). The classes include:

  • Stimulants. Increase CNS activity e.g cocaine and caffeine 
  • Hallucinogens. Alter your sensory perception e.g LSD and mescaline
  • Depressants. Decrease CNS activity e.g alcohol and opioids
  • Others. Do not quite fit into the other categories but have psychoactive properties e.g cannabis and MDMA

Conclusion

Psychoactive substances, that alter a person’s mental state, have several clinical applications. However, abuse of psychoactive substances is a global health problem affecting lots of teens and young adults. 

When it comes to psychoactive substance use, there are some important factors to note such as how the type and process of making the drug interact with your body. Your environment is also a key player.

What We Like About Brand

Safety

Plus CBD Oil, under the CV Sciences parent company, was the first to receive the GRAS[1] or Generally Recognized as Safe designation. This is determined by comparing the products the company makes against the FDA guidelines. 

The process took almost 5 years to complete, showing the brand had invested a lot in making sure its products were safe. 

Third-party Lab Testing

The third-party labs’ extensive lab testing ensures the oil drops or any other type of CBD products from the brand are safe for your body. 

The most notable third-party lab the company uses is DB Labs in Nevada. Since this facility is ISO-17025 certified, it should appeal to PlusCBD oil consumers. 

That is not all as CV Sciences still has its own in-house testing lab crucial for maintaining the quality of the different hemp products the company makes. 

A consumer can also access the company’s certificate of analysis[2] detailing each product’s different results after extensive lab testing. 

Extraction Methods

Plus CBD oil brand uses the CO2 extraction process[3] to derive the oil from the hemp plant. The hemp plant parts used in the process include the stalks and stems. 

Many companies commonly prefer using the CO2 extraction process as it is safe and will pull out all the important phytonutrients from the hemp plant. This also includes CBD, which is what we want. 

Purity

Before you can end up with headlines such as products that are gluten-free, there is a lot that goes behind the scenes to make these Plus CBD Oil products. 

C02 extraction has been one of the most methods the company uses to make its CBD oils have improved purity. 

The company also ensures quality assurance is performed through extensive testing of the CBD oils before using them in different products. 

The certificate of analysis on different products should make the consumers learn more about the improvement in the CBD’s purity.

Plus CBD Oil Reviews

Plus CBD Background

CV Sciences, the parent company, founded Plus CBD Oil in 2014. The company has since grown into a top brand in the CBD industry, where consumers can comfortably, can get their products. 

PlusCBD as a brand is well respected and quickly identifiable among other CBD brands. CV Sciences made it stand out by making sure the company delivers high-quality products to the masses always. 

As of September 2018, CV Sciences obtained the GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe by FDA standards) designation on its CBD products. This meant the PlusCBD oil products would now have a wider reach. This includes the US population, who had hoped to buy the PlusCBD oil products for a long time. 

It is not always easy to obtain the GRAS designation. It required CV Sciences to ensure their product could meet the FDA standards appropriately first. This also meant that the company had to publish safety data[4] on their formula CBD oil. 

The EU certified hemp seeds being part of the CV Sciences supply chain meant that the company could now make high-quality full-spectrum CBD products for the consumers. The hemp is sourced from Holland and then processed into the various products PlusCBD offers to the consumers. 

PlusCBD oil also agrees to third-party testing for all their CBD products. This means that their products have better purity and accuracy.

Formulas 

It is hard to go wrong with the PlusCBD oil products considering they are made with different formulations. This makes consumers choose what is right for them. There are up to four formulations. They include;

Raw formula

The raw formula is the basic formulation of a CBD product. It contains both the CBD and CBDA compounds. 

The CBDA compound breaks into CBD once heated. It is believed that CBDA would have the same benefits as CBD. As such, the formula may be suitable for cancer and seizures. However, the research on its application is still scarce. 

Extra strength formula

To make it stand out, the extra strength formula is both distilled and decarboxylated. 

The extraction process involves the use of chlorophyll and other crucial plant material. The result is that the oil turns to a gold color. That is how you also end up with the gold formula. 

There is no doubt you would love to use the gold drops for various CBD applications.

This is the highest concentration and cleanest CBD oil that the company offers. The distillation method definitely makes it the cleanest. 

Original formula

The original formula is a slight modification of the raw formula through the decarboxylation method. The result is that it would be stronger in CBD concentration, however, less strong than the extra-strength formula. 

The decarboxylation method involves heating of the CBDA compounds to end up with a more active CBD form. 

The decarboxylation method is done at a low heat stretched over time. The aim is to make formula CBD oil to preserve its cannabinoids even after heating. 

This hemp-derived formula will also contain other important compounds. Such include vitamin E, fatty acids, and other cannabinoids important for boosting the consumer’s overall health.

Maximum Strength formula 

Whether it is CBD oil spray, CBD drops, or other products, they can have the maximum strength formula as an option too. 

The maximum strength formula products are made to have more CBD concentration. It might not be as high as the extra-strength formula, but it is higher than what you get with the other formulas. 

For those whose CBD tolerance might have grown over the years, consider using the maximum strength formula to unlock more benefits of hemp CBD products. 

Benefits of Plus CBD Oil

The first thing you will benefit from the Plus CBD oil products will be the high-quality hemp the brand uses. It is extracted using the C02 extraction process to maintain purity. 

The company makes its products with different CBD concentrations. So, you can always start slow and increase your concentration after you are comfortable. The last thing you would want is to be overwhelmed with the CBD concentration. 

You are also likely to come across different flavors such as peppermint and goji. If you do not like the flavors, you can still opt for the unflavored peppermint products too. 

The lab results from other companies give you the confidence that the hemp used is top tier and will have the benefits you desire. The company also has a seed to shelf tracking process to ensure quality is always maintained. 

How To Purchase Plus CBD Products

Maybe you have seen a peppermint oil CBD product on the PlusCBD oil website, but you are not sure how to get it. 

There are two main ways of getting CBD products from the brand. You can buy them from the official website or many retail locations available across the country. Use the company’s store locator[5] to get these local retail stores. 

The company can ship your peppermint oil balm or any other CBD product you might have considered. All the orders take around two business days to process before shipping. The shipping period will depend on the courier chosen. 

Simply login into your PlusCBD oil account to start the purchase process. If you ever have a problem, get in touch with the company’s customer support team for help. 

Conclusion

Health Canal only recommends brands that can offer safe products, value for money, and many other desirable features. This means that you can now feel comfortable about buying CBD products from PlusCBD Oil. 

The company is always improving its C02 extraction and overall manufacturing methods to ensure the clients can end up with high-quality products. Their additional verifiable lab reports make it easier to trust their CBD products. 

Look at their official website to understand more about what the company can offer you.

What is Blue Moon Hemp?

There are a lot of reviews about hemp companies out there but not all of them are reliable. If you want trustworthy and informative Blue Moon Hemp CBD reviews, then you might want to check out our article. So without further ado let’s check the company out and how it was formed. 

Blue Moon Hemp is the result of a former competitive golfer  Christopher D. Cowartwho suffered an injury to his labrum muscle. Because of his pain, Cowart wanted to seek natural remedies to help him with his pain which eventually led him to form Blue Moon Hemp CBD. Which leaves us with a question: Is it a reliable brand?

Pros

Blue Moon Hemp CBD is a company that has a lot going for it. Here is a list of its well-known advantages compared to other companies:

  • Large Product Variety
  • Easy to use website
  • Amazing Customer Service
  • Full Transparency
  • Free shipping

What You Like About Blue Moon Hemp?

Quality 

The first thing that you might notice when using products made by Blue Hemp CBD is that they are well made and of high quality. That is no surprise considering that the company uses advanced methods like high-speed emulsion to create amazing products like CBD shatter and three-quarter moon. 

Another thing worth mentioning about their quality is the website as well. It’s easy to navigate and they even have a table of contents as well which only male Blue Moon Hemp’s brand shines even further. Overall. Blue Moon Hemp is a good example of a hemp company that strives for excellence. 

Potency

If you’re looking for strong pain relief options, then you’ll love Blue Moon Hemp. Their e-liquid, CBD tincture, and other non-GMO products are very strong. Their CBD tinctures in particular can reach up to 3000 mg of CBD per bottle which is more than enough to help you deal with most types of pains especially chronic ones.

Of course, they also have lower concentration doses as well like their Gummies and edibles. These are more suited as a tasty snack to help relieve you of tension rather than a product designed to help with the pain. Overall, Blue Moon Hemp CBD is a good choice if you’re looking for high potency items. 

Range of product

If there’s one thing to praise Blue Moon Hemp about then it’s about the range of their products. This CBD brand has a wide product selection ranging from CBD oils like an e-liquid to products like CBD shatter sour diesel which compliments your vape kits. With this being said, they also have CBD for pets as well like dog treats and pet tinctures.

Most CBD oil hemp brands out there only focus on one product like tinctures and dog treats which limits your potential options. The wide product selection also ensures that you can enjoy Blue Moon’s product in other ways and find out the best way to use their Natural CBD. After all, vaping CBD provides a different experience compared to using it as a salve. 

Hemp source

Blue Moon Hemp CBD is sourced from Kentucky and they were grown with absolute care and precision in hopes of making them into the high-quality products that they are now. Blue Moon Hemp products like CBD isolate and e-liquid are free from any dangerous chemicals or substances that can be detrimental to their customers’ health. 

If you didn’t know, Kentucky is a famous and reliable place to grow hemp. Which makes it a good place for a hemp company that sells a wide range of products like their three-quarter moon, half-moon, and total eclipse products. Expect a mix of CBD isolate and broad-spectrum CBD oils from them. Overall, expect non-GMO, eco-friendly, and sustainable sources when buying from Blue Moon hemp. 

Lab Test

Quality and potency wouldn’t mean anything if the product is falsely advertised in the first place. Luckily for you, Blue Moon Hemp products have undergone rigorous lab tests by a third-party lab. What’s even better is that they are very transparent about their product and they display their lab results on their website for each product.

Another reason why you should be relieved that their products are lab tested is because of safety. Some CBD products may contain heavy metals, pesticides, and other harmful substances. By ensuring that they don’t contain harmful chemicals, you are making sure that you aren’t being counterintuitive to buying CBD products and damaging your health in the process. 

Shipping & Return Policy

Blue Moon Hemp is pretty reliable when it comes to shipping as they can ship out to other countries and they are very punctual. But the best thing about their shipping policy is that it’s free once your orders reach a certain threshold. Orders over $ 99 are free provided that the shipping destination is inside the US.

As for their return policy, it’s good as well. However, they do not have a money-back guarantee since products must be unopened for a full refund which is a big letdown. But aside from this, they do return your orders provided that you give them a good enough reason.

Top 5 Best Blue Moon Hemp CBD 2021

E-liquids

E-Liquids

Blue Moon Hemp e liquids is an e-liquid sold at reasonable prices. The best thing about this vape juice e-liquid is that it contains delicious flavors ranging from the red devil to mango moon.

One of the biggest things that we like about Blue Moon Hemp oil is their product variety and their innovative products. A good example of these products is their Vape CBD e-liquid or vape oil that goes well with a vape pen.

Of course, this also goes with the flavors as well. CBD Blue Moon hemp seed oil products have an amazing flavor variety like mango moon, kush, red devil, flan, and many more! Not only are all of the flavors delicious but their variety will ensure that you’ll pick the best choice to use with your vape pen with their vape e liquids.

Last but not least is their CBD concentration. All of the CBD e liquids that they sell contain up to 1000 mg CBD per bottle ideal for CBD vape use. The only issue we have is that they sell 30 mg bottles which are relatively small compared to other brands which are probably why they’re called the quarter moon. 

CBD Tinctures

CBD Tinctures

Moon Hemp Blue CBD products are all amazing in their own right but their CBD tincture is one of the best CBD products to try out because of its potency that can reach up to 3000 mg CBD.

When you think about CBD products the first thing that would come to mind would be CBD tinctures. CBD vape pens and CBD e liquids might be more modern and convenient but if you’re looking for potency and effectiveness, then we highly recommend that you try out Blue Moon Hemp CBD tinctures.

Their CBD oil tinctures can reach up to 3000 mg of CBD oil per bottle which is extremely useful especially if you’re planning to use Moon Hemp CBD oil for pain relief. However, Blue Moon Hemp CBD can also be used for recreation as well since they offer lower concentrations as well.

The tinctures have concentrations as low as 500 mg as well which makes this product line a good choice for choosing the right amount of potency for you. Overall CBD tinctures Blue Moon Hemp is a product worth trying out. 

CBD Salves

CBD Salves

Blue Moon Hemp CBD salves are a good product if you’re looking for quick-acting pain relief or to remove tension.  Their salves also contain other ingredients that help work wonders on pain.

Blue Moon Hemp e liquids and CBD tinctures might be good for relieving pain but they can’t beat CBD salves when it comes to dealing with pain immediately. By simply rubbing Blue Moon Hemp’s CBD salve on the affected area, you can expect to benefit from its pain-relieving effects within seconds.

This isn’t the only thing you have to look forward to since this hemp blue moon salve also contains other ingredients that soothe the pain as well. A good example of this would be their eucalyptus salve which is known to have pain-relieving effects as well.  

Aside from this some of their salves also contain limonene as well which also has some positive health benefits. Limonene in particular is known[1] for its antineoplastic and chemopreventive properties.  Overall, we highly recommend Blue Moon Hemp salves for their effectiveness. 

CBD Gummies

CBD Gummies

Blue Moon’s CBD Gummies are the tastiest out of all of their product lines. We highly recommend their assorted flavoring for you to nibble and enjoy.

If you aren’t a big fan of the hempy flavor of Blue Moon Hemp Products then we highly recommend that you try out Blue Moon Hemp CBD Gummies. This product line is being sold in numerous ways and it contains CBD edibles like CBD gummy bears, gummy worms, and gummy drops taking you back to your days as a child.

Of course, their CBD gummies aren’t just limited to this as they offer a wide range of products to go along with their edibles. Some of their CBD edibles are sugar-free while others contain melatonin which is known for its therapeutic properties of helping people sleep[2]

Overall, we highly recommend their CBD gummies not just because of the different flavors that they offer but because it’s one of their best CBD products that you can take because of their low CBD content with less than 250 mg of CBD per serving. 

CBD Gel Caps

CBD Gel Caps

Out of the million bottles of CBD out there, Blue Moon CBD Gel Caps are the best when it comes to getting your daily dose of CBD. No need for special tools or mixing them with beverages.

Blue Moon offers quality products but most of them require tools and mixing which can be inconvenient. If you’re looking for a good alternative to CBD gummies, then we highly recommend the CBD Gel Caps of the company. 

And although this product line doesn’t reach 1000 mg of CBD content, 750 mg of CBD is more than enough to help you get through the day. Just like with CBD gummies all you need to do is put it in your mouth and swallow, letting the CBD isolate do its magic. 

Overall, their CBD Gel Caps may not be as impressive as the other CBD products on this list but it’s still a good option especially if you’re looking for a convenient quality CBD product for you to use. 

Where Can I buy Blue Moon CBD Oil?

Blue Moon Hemp CBD can be bought online as well as locally. If you choose to buy it online, then we recommend that you try out their main website[3]. It’s well organized and it contains the lab tests you need to check the product out. Of course, Blue Moon Hemp is also available on Amazon and other websites that sell CBD online. 

Should I Buy Blue Moon Hemp CBD Oil?

It depends on what you are looking for. If you’re looking to find a specific CBD product or want a safe and trustworthy brand, then Blue Hemp CBD oil is highly recommended by a lot of people. 

Cons

Blue Moon Hemp is a good company and its pros outweigh its cons. However, it does have some negative aspects that people might find annoying.  Things like:

  • Small e-liquid container
  • Too many products
  • Lack of innovation

Final thoughts

Overall, we can say the Blue Moon Hemp CBD is an amazing company. Although some of their products have shortcomings like the small containers, it doesn’t take away a lot from the company at all. After all, they have a large product variety and the majority of those products are doing well. Our Blue Moon Hemp CBD reviews conclude that they are a trustworthy brand for CBD enthusiasts to try out.

Depends on what you’re looking for. However, we do recommend that you try out Blue Moon Hemp CBD.

Want to lose butt fat permanently? Exercises To Lose Butt Fat?

You are not alone. Getting a toned butt is a fitness goal for many but achieving it will take some work. 

The right exercise routine can help you burn your butt fat and tone your butt muscles to achieve toned rounded buttocks. 

You can also capitalize on the relationship between supplements such as CBD oil and weight loss.

10 Quick & Effective Exercises To Lose Butt Fat Permanently

These exercises are great for toning your butt muscles and burning butt fat. 

  • Kickbacks 
  • Squats 
  • Step climbing 
  • Running 
  • High-intensity interval training (HIIT)
  • Lunges 
  • Lateral band walk 
  • One leg deadlifts
  • Chair pose 
  • Side-lying hip abduction

Spot reduction of fat in your buttocks alone is almost impossible. The best way to reduce your butt fat is to work towards a general weight loss. 

When you lose weight generally,  you will lose fat in your face, belly, butt, arms, thighs, and other parts of your body. 

You will need to pay attention to your nutrition during this time. Moderately reducing your daily calorie intake can help with general weight loss.  

Consider eating health friendly foods so that you are not missing out on your necessary nutrition.  

Power training exercises that target the muscle groups in your buttocks help you build muscle and are also great for promoting weight loss. These workouts should help you tone your butt muscles. Combining diet and exercise should also improve your results. 

You might need to seek medical advice before you jump on these exercises.

10 Easy Exercises To Reduce Butt Fat

Kickbacks 

Kickbacks are great for targeting the gluteus muscles. They are simple to perform and do not require special equipment and you can quickly get into a routine at home. 

You could bruise your knees if you attempt this exercise on the bare floor. Consider laying down an exercise mat before you begin. If you cannot get your hands on an exercise mat, an old towel will do. 

Here is how to do it 

  • Get on all fours with your knees and palms pushing the floor. 
  • Fully extend right legs till toes are nearly touching the floor 
  • Kick your heels upwards while keeping your legs straight and return your leg down 
  • Repeat the same motion 12 times on your right leg before switching to your left and doing it again. 

Squats 

Would our butt exercises list be complete without squats? 

Squats became a popular exercise for people trying to tone their butt muscles. It has lived up to its reputation and many people report positive results on their butts from performing squats. 

The great thing about squats is that it works on several muscle groups in your butt, thighs, and abdomen. Therefore helping to tone your lower body and midsection. 

Here is how to do squats right. 

  • Keep your shoulders level and extend your arms in front of you 
  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart 
  • Lower your body slowly bringing your butt as close to the floor as you can
  • Ensure your back remains straight during your descent 
  • Return to your starting position 
  • Repeat the entire process

If you want a more intense workout to burn more weight, consider using weights. The steps for the exercise remain the same but you would have to hold the weights in your hands while squatting. 

You could also tweak your squats workout to activate your gluteus medius[1] and gluteus maximus muscles by doing the single-leg squat. 

To perform the single-leg squat, you should:

  • Extend your hands in front of you at shoulder level 
  • Straighten your right leg and extend it forward 
  • Slowly bring your butt close to the ground while keeping your back straight 
  • Return to your starting position and repeat several times for both legs. 

Split squats are another variant of the exercise for toning your butt muscles. A study shows that it is more effective than deadlifts and good morning on your gluteus maximus muscles.

Step Climbing 

If you want to tone your butt muscles, you might want to use the stairs.

Step climbing is easily one of the easiest exercises that you can do to tone your muscles. You only need a flight of stairs and willpower to get started. 

Step climbing also helps strengthen and tone your upper legs. 

We are not done yet. 

Using the stairs can improve your oxygen uptake and reduce your bad cholesterol levels. Therefore, for your heart health[2] consider using the stairs today. 

You can get your step climbing exercise when you:

  • Use the stairs 
  • Use step climbing machines at the gym 
  • Go bouldering 
  • Hike uphill 

Running 

If you are looking to burn fat in your buttocks then you should include running in your exercise routine. 

Cardio such as running is excellent for losing weight. They also turn up your heart rate and have multiple benefits[3] for your heart health. 

Running for 30 minutes daily can burn fat and bring you closer to your fitness goals. 

The general weight loss you might experience from running regularly could translate to less fat in your butt. 

It goes further. Running gives your butt and thigh muscles a good workout.  Hence, it is a great way to get a rounder butt. 

While running is a more intense workout than walking, you can opt for walking if you cannot run. It is still a great way to work those muscles and burn fat cells. 

High-intensity interval training (HIIT)

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) involves committing to a single activity for a short period followed by a slow-paced activity for a longer period. 

HIIT has become an increasingly popular fitness trend for losing weight[4] with success. 

If you have got a tight schedule and you are worried about finding enough time to commit to exercising, HIIT might be the option for you. 

HIIT compresses intense workouts into a short time frame so that you can get the most benefits within your tight schedule. 

A simple HIIT routine that you could try might involve:

  • Warm-up 
  • Run on your treadmill for 1 minute at 7mph
  • Run on your treadmill for 2 minutes at 5mph
  • Repeat the process for 15 minutes 

Lunges 

One of the best strength training exercises for your lower body is lunges. Variations of this exercise include forward, sideways, and transverse lunges. 

Lunges activate your gluteus maximus muscles as well as your thighs and calves. 

Here is how to perform forward lunges:

  • Stand with your feet apart at about your hip’s distance
  • Put your right leg forward
  • Lower your body slowly keeping both knees at 90°
  • Ensure that your left knee does not touch the ground and your right knee does not move beyond your toes on your left foot 
  • Return to your original position and repeat the motion several times for both legs

Lateral Band Walk 

For this exercise, you will need to get resistance bands. 

The lateral band walk makes a great warm-up exercise before you dive into more intense workouts such as running. It is also helpful in toning your gluteus medius muscles. 

Once you have got your resistance band, here is how to do the lateral band walk:

  • Place your resistance band flat against the balls of your feet 
  • Stretch your legs to shoulder width and evenly distribute your weight 
  • Bend slightly into a semi-squat position 
  • Squeeze your core muscles and glutes 
  • Take a step about three inches to your right 
  • Take another step about three inches to your left 
  • Repeat this motion about ten times

A higher level of resistance from your resistance band gives you a more intense workout to burn more calories.

One Leg Deadlifts

Deadlifts can give your gluteus muscles an intense workout. You might need to use weights if you want to increase the intensity. 

Here is how you do the basic one leg deadlifts:

  • Stand on one leg
  • Extend your other leg backward, keeping your shoulders back and your back straight 
  • Lower your torso forward but not below your hips 
  • Return to your starting position and repeat the motion several times 

You can rest on your non supporting leg for some time if the workout gets too intense for you. 

Chair Pose 

If you are into yoga you have probably heard of the chair pose. Just like squats, it targets your buttocks and back fat. 

You could think of the chair pose as static squats. 

You can perform the chair pose anywhere you find a sturdy wall. Here is how to do it:

  • Stand straight with your back to the wall 
  • Get into a squat using the wall for support 
  • Extend your hands forward at shoulder level 
  • Hood the pose for 15-60 seconds depending on your endurance level 

Side-lying Hip Abduction

The Side-lying hip abduction is a buttock and hip toning exercise that you can do on your exercise mat. 

It targets your gluteus medius muscles. If you want to increase the challenge you could use ankle weights for resistance. 

Here is how you do the side-lying hip abduction:

  • Lie on one side keeping your knees together and your legs straight 
  • Support your head with your arm 
  • Raise your top leg slowly as high as you can without rotating your pelvis 
  • Return your leg to your starting position slowly 
  • Repeat the motion several times for both legs 

Conclusion 

If you want to get rid of butt fat and keep it off, you will have to work for it. It takes the right cocktail of exercises to help you lose fat and tone your butt muscles. 

Spot reduction of butt fat is not practical. However, these exercises could help you tone your butt muscles to burn fat.  

Aerobic activity to burn more calories is also important.

]]>5 Helpful Tips To Help Someone With Anxietyhttps://www.healthcanal.com/mental-health-behavior/help-someone-with-anxiety Fri, 16 Jul 2021 05:29:02 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267291Tips To Help Someone With Anxiety

Anxiety is one of the normal human emotions and we all get to experience it sometimes, especially when under stress. However, it is a little different for people with anxiety disorders as they can feel like they are drowning in their fears. 

How can you help? There are strategies for managing anxiety that you can practice with your loved ones if you have noticed their anxiety.

5 Helpful Tips To Help Someone With Anxiety

Tips for helping someone with anxiety include:

  • Learn the signs 
  • Do not enable avoidance or force confrontation 
  • Maintain communication 
  • Talk to a professional 
  • Take care of yourself 

About 18.1%[1] of the US adult population suffers from anxiety disorders annually, making it the most prevalent mental disorder. Despite several treatments being available for anxiety management, only about 36.9% are receiving treatment. Anxiety is also linked to other mental health disorders such as depression[2].  

Sometimes, a person with an anxiety disorder might experience a panic attack featuring fear and intense panic. They might have obvious triggers or it might come on suddenly, without warning.

Treatment for anxiety disorders includes medications such as antidepressants and anti-anxiety medicine. Some also use supplements such as CBD to help them relax as much as possible. Combining medication with psychotherapy could produce better results than medication alone.

If you have got a loved one with anxiety, your support could be instrumental in them getting better.  

Five Ways to Help Someone with Anxiety

Learn the Signs 

You cannot truly know what to do to help the person if you cannot tell when someone needs help. Everyone’s different and your loved one might not display all these signs but knowing them should help you identify when your loved one is struggling with fearful feelings. 

Signs of anxiety[3] can be grouped into physical symptoms, anxious thoughts, and anxious behaviors. 

Some physical symptoms of anxiety to look out for include:

  • Nausea 
  • Lightheadedness
  • Restlessness 
  • Sweating
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue 
  • Shortness of breath 

Anxious thoughts patterns that people with anxiety might express include:

  • Constantly worrying 
  • Jumping to conclusions off a single event 
  • Expecting the worst-case scenario 
  • All or nothing perspective 

Behavioral patterns that could let you know that your loved one is struggling with anxiety include:

  • Compulsive behaviors such as repeated hand washing 
  • Second-guessing themselves 
  • Constantly needing reassurance 
  • Avoiding uncomfortable or feared situations 
  • Easily irritated, defensive, or frustrated in uncomfortable or feared situations 

Your loved one does not have to display all the symptoms and behaviors above. Like with most emotions, everyone responds differently to anxiety. However, if you notice one or more of these, it could be a sign that they need your help. 

Do Not Enable Avoidance or Force Confrontation 

Sometimes, your loved one might not be quite ready to face their fears. It is essential that you do not force them[4] to face their fears before they are ready to. 

If you push too hard, you could break your relationship with your anxious loved one and make things worse. However, just because you are trying to preserve the relationship does not mean that you should enable avoidance. 

Consistently helping your loved one avoid uncomfortable or fearful situations might be enabling their anxiety and stopping them from improving their mental health. Avoiding uncomfortable situations does not help them improve with time. Instead, they would have limited room for expression and their anxiety could worsen. 

Encouraging your loved ones to face their fears could help them eliminate their cause for concern. Even with panic attacks, it is usually best to ride it out instead of avoiding such situations. Breathing exercises[5] might also help.

It is all about striking a balance. You do not want to encourage the anxiety and at the same time, you should not be forcing a confrontation. 

Consider getting professional help to help them build the courage they need to face their fears. You could suggest that the person sees a professional therapist. It takes some of the burdens off you so that you can focus on being helpful in other ways.  

Maintain Communication 

It is essential to ensure that your loved one understands that you are there for them. You could let them know that you have observed that they seem anxious about something lately and you are willing to help. 

People struggling with anxiety might appreciate a loved one reaching out to them. You can ask them[6] to share with you ways that you can support them.  

Everyone’s needs are different and you can only help them deal with their anxiety when you pay attention to how they want to be helped. 

Sometimes they might need your help breaking up a seemingly large task into manageable bits. Other times, a distraction might be the right remedy and can help take their mind off those thoughts. 

Your anxious friend might also just need a friend to speak to. Talking about diverse topics might help them feel better. Try not to make your discussions only about their anxiety. Listen to what they have to say and let the conversation flow normally and drift from one topic to another. However, if they would like to speak on their anxiety let them express themselves and share their fears with you.

Try not to belittle their experiences. Telling them to get over it is not helping. Their source of anxiety does not have to make sense to you. Their experience is very real to them and you will need to be sensitive to their plight if you want to help.

If possible, spend quality time together[7].  Physical one on one time can help reassure your anxious friend. If you cannot spend much time together, technology provides several alternatives.  

Phone calls, video calls, and texts, every couple of days can help you keep in touch and monitor your friend’s progress with anxiety. You can also let them know to contact you anytime they feel overwhelmed.

Talk to a Professional 

There is only so much that you can do to help a loved one with anxiety and sometimes encouraging them to seek professional help is the best course to take. 

If you notice that anxiety is affecting important areas of your loved one’s life such as school and work, it could be time to discuss speaking to a therapist. 

They might not feel too excited about the idea of speaking to someone. Instead of trying to force them to seek help, remind them that they do not have to commit to it after the first visit.

Let them understand that a visit to their therapist could be like a routine medical exam but for their mental health. After the first visit, they might develop the motivation to follow through with the treatment. 

Your therapist could help your loved one manage their anxiety through[8]:

  • Psychotherapy 
  • Medication

Psychotherapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy and behavioral therapy focuses on helping them handle anxiety better. Medications such as antidepressants might also be part of their treatment.

You can still support their treatment journey by asking them about their experience or suggesting a different therapist if the first one does not work out. Joining in on a therapy session could also help you learn more helpful skills. 

Take Care of Yourself 

It will be incredibly difficult to provide adequate support if you are falling apart too. Taking out time to care for yourself[9] is important if you want to help someone with anxiety. 

When you have been the support for too long without getting any support yourself, you could feel overwhelmed. Ensuring that you are looking after your own physical and mental health is vital. 

Consider setting boundaries and provide as much help as you feel able to. Do not take on more work when you feel overwhelmed. You could also lighten the load by getting help from someone else. 

Share your feelings and anxiety with someone else too. You could also get help from support groups.

Conclusion 

Wanting to help a loved one with anxiety is only natural. However, since everyone’s needs are different, having an open conversation with them about their condition and how they would like to be supported is essential. 

Knowing what sign to look out for helps you identify when your loved one needs your attention. Discuss getting professional help if you notice that anxiety is holding them back from important parts of their life. Combining medicine and therapy might help a person experiencing anxiety. 

However, helping someone with anxiety should not feel like a prison. Take time to care for your physical and mental health. You could find help from friends and in support groups so that you do not feel overwhelmed.

Healthy adults need at least seven hours of sleep daily[1] for optimal health. Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea can disrupt a healthy sleep cycle. It also increases your risk[2] of depression, heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and stroke. So how weight loss reduce sleep apnea?

Weight loss may help you manage your sleep apnea. Exploring exercise and the relationship between CBD and weight loss could be invaluable to your journey.

How Much Weight Should I Lose for Sleep Apnea 

Losing about 10%[3] of your current weight could significantly improve your sleep apnea and reduce your symptoms. A study shows that sleep apnea patients who lost up to 20 pounds[4] in a year and maintained their weight loss experienced fewer sleep apnea symptoms. 

People with mild sleep apnea might also experience the disappearance of their symptoms with weight loss. Researchers found that losing about 33 pounds[4] could cure sleep apnea in mild cases. 

The lower your current weight and waist circumference, the better your results might be. Therefore, aim for a sustainable weight loss journey that brings consistent results.  

Significant weight loss is invaluable for reducing other health complications that you might experience due to sleep apnea. Therefore, you might observe improvement with heart conditions and reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes and stroke.

Losing weight is just as important as keeping it off. Hence, pursue only sustainable weight loss options for your health. 

How Weight Loss Can Help Reduce Sleep Apnea?

People who are overweight might have extra tissue that could cause airway obstruction in their sleep. Therefore, as you drop the excess fat, your obstructive sleep apnea might be improved.

Obstructive sleep apnea affects at least 25 million American[5] adults and is more prevalent among obese or overweight people.  

If you are overweight or obese you are likely to have excess fat deposits in your neck called pharyngeal fat[6]. When you sleep, your airway relaxes, therefore, the excess fat can block your airway. Your breathing can become labored and you could stop breathing multiple times through the night. 

Excess abdominal fat can also affect your breathing at night. The extra fat can compress your chest wall, reducing your chest capacity and increasing the likelihood that your upper airway collapses and you stop breathing. 

These risks associated with being overweight could be reduced with weight loss. Therefore, if you lose the excess fat, you could eliminate the extra pressure on your chest wall and decrease the chances of blocking your airway with pharyngeal fat. 

Weight loss is also helpful for other health conditions associated with sleep apnea. For instance, losing weight could help improve heart disease, lower blood pressure, and decrease your risk of stroke. 

How to Lose Weight for Sleep Apnea 

Starving yourself simply to lose weight is not only unsustainable but could hurt you as well. On your journey to getting healthy, you should ensure you are getting proper nutrition and taking advantage of physical activity. 

Calorie Deficit 

Calories present in food give your body the energy it needs to perform daily functions. However, if you are getting more calories from food than your body needs, you will be saving the extra fat in various parts of your body causing weight gain. 

On the flip side, consuming fewer calories than your body needs daily, will send you to your fat reserves for energy. That is why restricting your daily calorie intake is essential for weight loss. 

A study[4] on overweight people with sleep apnea used a caloric deficit diet to improve sleep apnea with a weight loss of about 20 pounds. 

However, take precautions not to severely limit your calorie intake.  You still need to ensure you are getting the proper nutrition daily.  Starting at about 500 calories less than your normal daily intake is a good place to start. 

Weight loss promoting supplements such as CBD could help you on your weight loss journey.

Physical Activity 

Engaging in physical activity can help you burn fat and lose weight to improve your sleep apnea. 

Joining a gym or getting a physical trainer can help you stay focused on your goals. However, you can lose weight without gym through simple at-home routines.

Instead of going on the treadmill at your local gym, you could take a walk around your neighborhood instead. You can also use household items as props for your exercise routine. 

The right blend of exercise can help you lose weight and tone your muscles. 

Aerobic exercises such as walking, running, cycling, and swimming are easy to get into. They are excellent fat burners and are beneficial for your heart health too.  

Strength training and resistance training exercises might involve weight lifting and using resistance bands. These types of workouts help you tone your muscles to achieve a leaner appearance. 

Building muscles also helps you burn calories faster.

Other Treatments for Sleep Apnea 

While weight loss reduce sleep apnea, it might not provide a cure. Your doctor might still recommend other treatments to manage your condition. 

Lifestyle Changes

In addition to losing weight, you can make some changes to your lifestyle that can help you manage your sleep apnea. 

These changes are typically the first line of treatment for sleep apnea and help you normalize your breathing.

You could try the following[7]:

  • Quit smoking 
  • Switch to a healthy diet 
  • Decrease alcohol intake 
  • Positional therapy

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Therapy

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is a major sleep apnea treatment that helps to keep your airway open through the night. CPAP works by providing pressurized air[8] through a mask constantly.

The increased air pressure from the machines help prevent airway collapse while you sleep. Initially, you might find the CPAP therapy uncomfortable but it gets more comfortable after your adjustment period. 

You could also get other airway pressure devices[8] such as Bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP) and Variable Positive Airway Pressure (VPAP).

Mandibular Repositioning Device (MRD)

These custom-made oral devices help to keep your jaw and upper airway open through the night. 

After complete assessment by your dental professional, they’ll take a mold of your teeth to design your custom oral appliance for sleep apnea. 

The mandibular repositioning device (MRD) is the first line of treatment for relieving the symptoms of mild obstructive sleep apnea. 

Medication 

Your doctor and sleep specialist might recommend medication for the management of your sleep apnea symptoms. However, you will need to consult your doctor for medical advice before taking any medication for sleep apnea.  That is because these drugs can have serious side effects and might not be for everyone.

Surgery 

When other sleep apnea therapies fail to provide desirable results, your doctor might suggest getting surgery to widen your airway. 

Your doctor can surgically remove excess tissue or enlarged tonsils that might be obstructing your airway. Depending on how extensive your procedure will be, your doctor can perform the procedure in their office or at a hospital. 

Conclusion 

Losing up to 10% of your current body weight could help improve your obstructive sleep apnea symptoms. Weight loss may help reduce some of the pressure on your chest obstructing your airway. 

When you lose weight, you could also improve your overall health by reducing your risk of other health conditions associated with sleep apnea such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, and heart disease.

Committing to a healthy calorie deficit diet and exercise could help you shed pounds. 

Your doctor can also recommend other treatments for your sleep apnea such as lifestyle changes, airway pressure devices, oral devices, and surgery.

]]>How Long Does Cocaine Stay In Your Systemhttps://www.healthcanal.com/health/how-long-does-cocaine-stay-in-your-system Tue, 13 Jul 2021 08:07:01 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267268Cocaine Stay in Your System

There are several reasons why you would be asking how long does cocaine stays in your system. It could be because you or someone you know has used cocaine recently or you have got a drug test coming up.  

Learning how long cocaine can stay in your system plus the factors influencing it could help you get the help you need. 

How Long Does Cocaine Stay in Your System

Cocaine has a half-life of about 50 minutes[1] and can stay in your body for up to four days[2]. However, cocaine can still show up in tests a few weeks later.

Cocaine is a fast-acting drug that gives users a quick, often short-lived high. This property makes it addictive because users need a fix pretty often. It has a pretty short half-life of about 50 minutes. Meaning that about 50 minutes after ingestion, the concentration of cocaine in your system reduces to half. 

Other psychoactive substances could last several days or weeks in your system before being cleared. People using CBD products could find that CBD can stay in their system for weeks.

Cocaine acts as a stimulant on your central nervous system (CNS). As cocaine effects begin to wear off, you might begin to experience withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are often a direct opposite of how you felt during your high, therefore, users might feel the need to get another dose. 

Cocaine withdrawal symptoms include[3] sleepiness, irritability, increased fatigue, anxiety, and appetite. You might also experience intense sadness. This period is delicate because this is when you might start to feel intense cravings for a fix of cocaine. If you are trying to get clean, recognizing these signs and beginning interventions could help prevent a relapse. 

Lots of psychoactive substances have health applications, for instance, more people are becoming aware and gaining from the health benefits of cannabis. However, drug abuse could have disastrous consequences. 

Factors Affecting How Long Cocaine Stays In Your System 

Cocaine can stay in your system from a few days to a few weeks. If you are asking how long does cocaine stay in your system, you might be interested to know that many factors[4] including your metabolism and how you take the drug can affect how long cocaine stays.

How Much Drugs You Took

If you took a smaller dose of crack, it is likely to stay in your system for a shorter period. However, the larger the dose, the longer it will take for your body to clear it up and it will be around for a little longer. Taking large doses or multiple doses of cocaine could keep it in your system for up to a month.

Route of Administration 

How you take cocaine can affect how quickly you begin to feel its effects and eliminate it from your system. Injecting or smoking acts fast and is eliminated quicker while cocaine taken orally might stick around in your system a little longer. 

Frequency of Intake 

If you are a regular cocaine user, it will take longer for your system to clear it and its metabolites than if this was a one-off incident.

Taking With Alcohol 

Mixing alcohol with psychoactive drugs is a common yet dangerous practice among drug users. Alcohol binds to cocaine to form cocaethylene[5] and slows down its elimination process.

Cocaethylene produces more toxic effects on your body than cocaine alone. It could cause liver damage, cardiovascular troubles, increased risk of stroke, impulsive behaviors, and death. 

Purity 

Contaminants present in cocaine could affect how quickly your body can process and eliminate it. 

Body Fat 

More body fat typically means a longer elimination time. That is because benzoylecgonine, a product of cocaine metabolism, could be stored in your fat tissues. Benzoylecgonine is also a cocaine metabolite tested during drug screening. 

Your Body Metabolism 

When it comes to eliminating cocaine from your body, individual differences come to play. Factors such as your age, health issues, gender, and genetics could affect how quickly cocaine and its metabolites are eliminated from your body.

How Quickly Does Cocaine Act 

Cocaine acts pretty quickly and users can begin to feel its effects in a few seconds to a couple of minutes depending on the route of administration. 

As a fast-acting psychoactive substance, cocaine gives you a high lasting only a couple of minutes to a few hours. This short-lived euphoria could cause users to binge to prolong the feeling. However, repeated cocaine use can quickly turn into an addiction and you could develop some tolerance to the substance use. 

Injecting and smoking cocaine acts pretty quickly and users can begin to feel the rush followed closely by the high as soon as five seconds after[6]. This feeling does not last very long.

Snorting cocaine might take a little longer for the effects to kick in, usually between 3 – 5 minutes. Oral ingestion could take as long as 30 minutes to act and the effects last a little longer and could act for up to 90 minutes. 

If you find yourself or a loved one developing a cocaine addiction, you might need addiction treatment. Consider checking yourself into a treatment center or encouraging the affected party to do so. You could also call[7] a free addiction helpline for free confidential advice. 

How Long Does Cocaine Show up in a Drug Test 

You can usually detect cocaine and its metabolites in a drug test 1 – 4 days after use. However, you could still get a positive result if you are an active drug user even after four days. 

Drug tests check for the presence of cocaine or its metabolites such as benzoylecgonine in your blood, urine, saliva, or hair. Because of cocaine’s short half-life, it typically gets cleared from your system in a few days. Benzoylecgonine, the major cocaine metabolite tested for. Also has a short half-life of about 12 hours and could be eliminated from your body in four days.  

The sample used[8] for your drug test will affect your results as cocaine metabolites could persist in some samples longer than others. 

If you are testing blood, cocaine could be detected up to 24 hours after use while for saliva, it could be up to two days after. Cocaine detection times for urine drug tests could get up to four days. However, cocaine stays in hair the longest and you could still get a positive result up to 90 days after. 

Hair drug tests are not really popular anymore because the results can be influenced by several factors such as cocaine in the environment and hair color. 

Other factors[9] such as your weight, height, polydrug use, and liver function could affect how long cocaine shows up in your drug test. 

Getting Rid of Cocaine in Your Body Fast 

Perhaps you have landed a job but before you can resume, you need to take a drug test. If you have spent the past week partying and you have used cocaine, you might be on the lookout for a fast way to clear it from your system.  

The internet is filled with loads of tips and tricks that claim to help you eliminate the cocaine in your system quickly for a clean drug test. However, many of these techniques are not backed by scientific research and could be dangerous. 

The best thing you can do under this circumstance is to drink lots of water and wait for your liver to break down and eliminate cocaine and its metabolites from your system. Cocaine does not stay in your system for too long unlike other psychoactive substances and you could have a clean test result some days later. 

If cocaine use is interfering with your work or you think you might have a cocaine addiction, it is a sign that you need help and would benefit from going to a treatment center for addiction treatment. They will help you explore several treatment options to help improve your substance abuse.

Conclusion

Cocaine with a short half-life of about 50 minutes typically stays in your body for about 2 – 4 days after use. If you are a heavy user or you took it with other psychoactive substances such as alcohol, it could stay in your system longer. 

A drug test can detect cocaine and its metabolites 1 – 4 days after ingestion. However, the detection period can be longer depending on the sample tested and your body’s metabolism. 
If you need help with cocaine addiction, consider getting help from a treatment center or call[10] the national helpline for free confidential advice and addiction treatment.

In January of 2020, WHO (World Health Organization)[1] communicated that depression is a common mental disorder, with 264 million worldwide suffering from it. A significant factor in the overall burden of disease worldwide, depression is the leading cause of disability globally.

Depression can be a severe health condition when it is moderate to severe in intensity and is long-lasting, causing those who suffer from it to function poorly at school or work. At worst, depression can lead to suicide, with close to 800,000 people dying from it every year. 

Fortunately, some treatments are effective in managing depression, including online depression help. Online therapy for depression is currently in its infancy, but the Internet has great potential to help physicians support patients suffering from depression.

Why Should I Use Online Counseling?

Physicians have used Internet-based psychotherapy as a tool to help their patients. Therapy could be in the form of Internet-based therapy sites[2], interactive response programs through the phone, or programs on stand-alone computers. 

With so many people having access to the World Wide Web, it’s pretty easy to search for medical information, screen for health problems, and perform other self-help approaches. The information is also always available to read and absorb at the user’s own pace and refer to it repeatedly when needed. 

The high cost of physician consultations also makes the Internet the more cost-efficient source of health and medical information. It also covers the person in a shroud of anonymity when searching for information on and treating stigmatized diseases, such as depression. People are more willing to disclose added information about themselves to a computer versus a therapist.

How To Choose The Best Online Depression Help?

COVID-19 has caused a rise in mental health symptoms[3]. According to the CDC, in June 2020, 40 percent of US adults reported they have struggled with mental health symptoms, a significant increase from the same period in 2019. But quarantines and social distancing have made seeing a therapist face-to-face challenging, and the best option for many is to seek help online.

Before deciding which online resource is best to help you with depression, determine first if getting this method is best for you. Ask yourself if you need help with depression. 

Depression Symptoms

While the symptoms may be different for each person, these are the most common symptoms:

  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Thoughts of self-harm
  • Anxiousness
  • Hopelessness
  • Sadness
  • Helplessness
  • Guilt
  • Tiredness or having little energy
  • Restlessness
  • Loss of happiness and interest in things you used to enjoy
  • Digestive issues, bodily aches, and pains that have no physical cause and don’t go away
  • Speaking or moving slower than usual
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
  • Sleeping too much or having trouble sleeping
  • Weight changes and a change in appetite

Help is Available

Online therapy for depression is not for those who are technophobes or have literacy issues. You would also need to have access to the Internet and a computer, tablet, or smartphone. 

When looking for help for depression online, it is essential that the information provided on the website is updated and of high quality. Several tools assess the quality of health information provided on a website, such as the Automated Quality Assessment (AQA) procedure, DISCERN, HealthInsite, and HONCode. 

Still, there is no clear-cut standard and consensus as to what is considered high-quality information. It is also important to note that while many sites provide information, not many diagnose or prescribe medication.

When assessing websites for help with your depression, consider the following:

  • The wide range of their therapists’ expertise
  • All their therapists are licensed
  • The services they provide accept insurance
  • The site has positive user feedback
  • They have flexible payment options

Why Getting Help Matters

Depression is a debilitating illness for those that experience it. Many who suffer from depression find it difficult to seek help, but the sooner you seek help, the sooner you can recover. Without treatment, it is unlikely to go away on its own. Untreated depression can go on for months and years, leaving many adverse effects on a person.

People who suffer from depression may at times experience[4] mental pain and physical pain, such as disrupted sleep, sore muscles, poor digestion, and joint pains. And the pain from depression may mask other health problems you may have. Some people shrug off physical symptoms they may feel, thinking it’s because of their depression, then discovering that the sign was from another disease. Treating your depression eliminates one reason for the physical pain you may be feeling, and doctors can run further diagnostic tests to find what ails you.

Therapy for your depression can help change your way of thinking and improve your coping skills, so you’re able to deal with any conflicts or stress you experience going through life. Therapy can also identify and change unhelpful ways of thinking and behavior.

There is a wealth of information available on the Internet about depression, but as mentioned earlier, not all provide diagnoses or prescriptions for medication. Here are seven depression resources online we recommend that could help you if you’re seeking support.

Frequently Asked Questions

How effective is online therapy?

Many studies have been conducted recently, and there have also been reviews of several previous studies. The consensus has been that online cognitive behavioral therapy is as effective as face-to-face sessions with your therapist.

What are the benefits of online therapy?

There are many benefits of online therapy – the first one being its convenience. Since you don’t need to travel to see your therapist, you also save time. Even scheduling appointments with your therapist is more convenient since communicating with them is available 24 hours a day. The other benefit is safety. With the pandemic, it is safer for you to stay at home and meet your therapist online than go out in public. Another advantage is online therapy is less costly than face-to-face sessions.

What are the disadvantages of online therapy?

Some may feel that online therapy is more impersonal than meeting your therapist face-to-face. Also, your therapist will not be able to read your body language as well over a video call than in person.

]]>Drinking Wine And Stay Fit: Does It Really Work?https://www.healthcanal.com/life-style-fitness/wine-for-weight-loss Mon, 12 Jul 2021 10:41:00 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267285how to drink wine and lose weight

For years, there have been headlines declaring drinking wine can help you lose those unwanted pounds. While this sounds too good to be true, there may be a grain of truth to the claim.

Some studies have suggested drinking wine, especially before going to bed, may help you achieve your weight loss goals

How to Drink Wine and Lose Weight?

In addition to a healthy diet and a consistent exercise routine, weight loss can be achieved by drinking 1-2 glasses of wine in the evenings — there is science to back this theory up!

One of the studies on drinking wine and losing weight comes from scientists from Washington State University[1]. They showed that a plant compound found in grapes, resveratrol, can change white fat cells into beige fat cells. 

Another study[2] conducted by the Harvard School of Medicine on 20,000 women showed women who drank wine moderately reduced their risk of developing obesity by 70%. One more study[3] by the Arizona State University on bees triggered a moderation effect on their food intake when given the compound resveratrol.

White, Brown, and Beige Fat Cells

White fat cells are found in connective tissues as visceral fat and subcutaneous fat and convert excess calories into fatty acids. Too many white fat cells[4] in your body lead to an imbalance and disease.

Beige fat cells are found in areas where white cells are (beneath the skin and abdominal cavity) but act like brown fat cells. Brown fat cells burn energy[5] to help your body produce heat when your body’s temperature drops. 

Beige fat cells are transformed from white fat cells through regular exposure to temperatures above the shivering point for at least two hours, regular exercise, and intake of nutritional supplements such as quercetin and CBD.

Brown fat cells not only encourage weight loss but also reduce your risk of hypothermia and increase your body’s insulin sensitivity, therefore lowering your chances of developing diabetes. This means your ability to turn white fat cells into beige cells can help you lose weight[6] and partially prevent obesity.

Health Benefits of Drinking Wine

There has been much debate on the health benefits of drinking wine. However, more and more studies seem to support the idea that drinking a moderate amount of wine can reduce the risks of various diseases.

Here are a few of the known benefits of red wine:

  • Good for your heart. The antioxidants[7] contained in wine help decrease your risk of developing coronary artery disease. Your risk of heart attack increases with coronary artery disease. While not completely understood, this might be because these antioxidants protect against bad cholesterol buildup and increase good cholesterol levels.
  • Lowers blood pressure. A study[8] showed that dealcoholized wine increases the level of nitric oxide in the body, which helps blood vessels relax, therefore reducing blood pressure.
  • Reduces insulin resistance. Another study[9] showed the beneficial effects of wine on insulin resistance. This study took sixty-seven men with a high risk of cardiovascular disease and gave them red wine and dealcoholized red wine and gin in the same amounts. The study found fasting glucose was constant throughout the study, and plasma insulin and HOMA-IR, an indicator of insulin resistance, decreased after giving red wine and dealcoholized red wine in the participants.

Wine and Weight Loss

A diet rich in antioxidants can help you slow damage to your cells caused by free radicals and reduce your risk of developing various diseases. Some antioxidants such as thymoquinone found in cumin, quercetin found in massive amounts in buckwheat tea, and resveratrol found in wine have numerous health benefits and are now showing promise in helping aid weight loss. 

However, wine can also be loaded with sugar and calories, leading to the debate on whether wine can help you lose weight. While different variations of wine have different amounts of alcohol, sugar, and calorie content, most of its calories come from alcohol. 

Wine contains resveratrol and other antioxidants that can help your body reduce inflammation, increase heart health, and control blood sugar. Some human studies[10] have shown moderate wine consumption can also keep you from gaining weight.

Drinking moderate amounts of wine can also improve blood flow because it relaxes your blood vessels, increasing the number of nutrients your cells get along with oxygen, a necessary component in burning fat.

In addition, wine consumption increases two hormones that help you build muscle and burn fat, respectively: testosterone and adiponectin. Not just that, it also decreases estrogen production, the hormone that makes you retain fat, and serum hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), which prevents testosterone in your body from acting on receptors. 

The increase in testosterone and adiponectin coupled with the decrease in estrogen and SHBG helps release stored fat and increases your metabolism.

However, excessive alcohol consumption, especially in men, leads to weight gain. Overconsumption of alcohol can also lead to problems in regulating blood sugar levels and insulin resistance.

There is a fine line between overconsumption and moderation when it comes to drinking wine. To minimize overindulging and getting the maximum health benefits from your glass of wine, here are some tips on the best ones to drink and how to drink wine and lose weight.

Best Types of Wine for Weight Loss

If you’re looking to take full advantage of the antioxidants available in wine, the best ones to consume would be red wines over white. Red wine[11] contains more antioxidants than white wines because red wine includes grape skins, which have the antioxidants during fermentation.

Opt for dry red wines instead of sweet ones because the sweeter wines can contain more sugar than dry wines. It can be difficult at times to determine if a wine is dry or sweet if you base it off of how it tastes, but a wine that has fewer than 10 grams of residual sugar is categorized as dry, and a wine that has over 35 grams of residual sugar is considered sweet.

For red wines, choose rosé, pinot noir, or merlot. These only have 1 gram of sugar, 3 grams of carbohydrates, and 88 calories per five ounces (one glass). Steer clear of sherry and marsala, which have 8 grams of sugar, 14 grams of carbohydrates, and 164 calories in one glass.

But the most crucial tip to keep in mind is to drink in moderation, that’s one glass for women, one to two glasses for men. If you plan on drinking wine, make sure you are still at a calorie deficit to keep your weight loss on track.

Go Ahead and Have a Glass

For decades we have been told to forego alcohol if we want to lose weight because of the belief that it merely contains empty calories and causes us to overeat. This is why it seems too good to be true that there are now studies that prove otherwise and show that there may be multiple health benefits to moderate consumption of wine, including weight loss.

Red wine is high in antioxidants, especially resveratrol, which can reduce your risk of coronary heart disease, reduce blood pressure, and keep your blood sugar levels stable. 

To reap the full benefits of your glass of red wine, stick to one serving which is one glass or 5 ounces (150 ml). Keep track of your calories as well, so you know how many calories you’ve consumed in one day. 

Remember, the way to lose weight is to consume fewer calories than what your body uses. When drinking wine, stick to dry red wines, which are healthier than white wines and sweet wines because they have more antioxidants and have less residual sugar.

Whatever your viewpoints or opinions, there sure is a lot to get angry about these days. A lot of it, we simply cannot do anything to change or improve within the short term. It’s not a surprise, therefore, that a lot of people are more-or-less angry a lot of the time.

Bottling anger up is healthy for you and letting out may not be healthy for anyone. The energy that comes with anger is supposed to help us deal with dangerous situations, but in the modern day it just leaves us wound up with nothing to do about it.

That’s where anger management comes in. As the name implies, it’s possible to manage your anger in a healthy way. It is possible to express your dissatisfaction, relieving the emotional pressure if nothing else, without taking that anger out on the people around you.

Why Should Join Anger Management Classes?

Here’s an important piece of information that most of us don’t hear: anger[1] is not necessarily a good or bad thing. It’s an emotion, a reaction to the world around you, and an honest reaction can never really be bad. However, an expression of that emotion definitely can be either positive or negative.

Most of us have experience with this sort of thing. Someone cuts you off in a rush hour, being rude and thoughtless but leaving you no outlet for your outrage. If you work in a service industry, you probably deal with irritating people all the time.

If you’re cut off, do you yell at your passenger? If a customer is rude, are you rude in return? Both of these are probably unhealthy expressions of anger that don’t resolve anything and just make other people unhappy as well.

The point of anger management is to learn strategies for controlling anger so you don’t act thoughtlessly. It can also help people express anger in a healthy, productive way in an effort to support emotional health.

7 Best Online Anger Management Classes 2021

Online-therapy

Online-therapy.com doesn’t just focus on anger management but offers a general therapy service. While it’s great for personal growth, it may not meet requirements for court-ordered anger management classes.

  • Highly structured therapy
  • Regular, weekly therapy sessions
  • Security and confidentiality guaranteed
  • Individual therapy
  • Costly
  • Not available in all 50 states
  • May not satisfy court requirements
  • Doesn’t issue certificates of enrollment or completion

Online-therapy.com matches you with a licensed therapist, meeting weekly for either phone or video sessions. They structure their approach around cognitive behavioral therapy and use easy-to-digest lessons to supplement therapy.

You certainly can focus on anger management as an aspect of your therapy. Online-therapy.com doesn’t offer specific anger management classes. There’s no end date for therapy, either, so things like certificates of course completion aren’t available.

Note that there is the very similarly named onlinetherapy.com. The dash makes a difference.

Talkspace

Talkspace

Talkspace is a great option for someone seeking to learn strategies for anger management as part of improving mental health. Work with a therapist over text, phone or video on a weekly basis.

  • Work with licensed counselors
  • Offers psychiatrists to prescribe medication
  • Text, phone, or video sessions
  • May work with your insurance provider
  • Expensive
  • May not satisfy court requirements
  • Doesn’t offer a completion certificate

Online therapy has become a big business, especially in the wake of COVID. As a result, there are a bunch of offerings for someone looking for a convenient way to improve themselves at their own pace. Talkspace is one of the better options, offering full online therapy with a mental health professional, as well as some supplemental services.

It may not be what a probation officer is looking for in terms of an online anger management course, though. Since there’s no end date, there’s no completion certificate. If simply managing anger is your goal, however, this might be a good option.

Calmerry

Calmerry

Calmerry is similar to Talkspace or Betterhelp, but with not as many bells or whistles. It’s a little cheaper as a result, so it can be a great option for self-improvement and therapy.

  • Licensed counselors
  • Weekly therapy sessions
  • Communicate by text, phone, or video
  • Less expensive
  • Some types of therapy require you to call to start
  • Probably doesn’t satisfy a court order
  • No certificate of completion

You can connect to Calmerry either online or through an app on your smartphone. The services will connect you to a therapist who you can work with to improve your anger management skills, as well as a number of other issues.

Anger management is definitely a specialty that is offered by Calmerry. As with a number of other options, however, it’s not really an anger management program as it is just regular therapy moved online. If you need a certificate that satisfies court requirements, this might not be the best option.

BetterHelp

betterhelp

BetterHelp is another full-service therapy option, allowing you to work with a therapist from home. It also offers group therapy and online courses for many problems, including anger.

  • Message your therapist
  • Anytime contact with text messaging
  • Smartphone app or website
  • Anger management classes and group therapy available
  • Pricey
  • Check to see if probation officers will accept it

Like some of the other options on this list, Betterhelp connects you with a therapist for regular, weekly sessions. Text messaging through their secure connection means you can reach out whenever you need some help.

Unlike some equivalent options, however, BetterHelp does offer online courses and group therapy sessions. They are offered at no extra cost, so while it’s not free anger management classes, there might be some savings.

Open Path

Open Path

Open path focuses on anger management, teaching skills like meditation and stress reduction, all available to go over at your own pace. Guaranteed to satisfy court needs.

  • Free first lesson
  • Specialized in anger management
  • Online courses
  • An instant certificate that satisfies court requirements
  • Less expensive
  • No general therapy

For a one-time registration fee of about $ 5, you get access to all of Open Path’s courses. You do have to pay additional fees for the course hours. However, there are a bunch of benefits. In addition to a free first class, you also get hard-copy certificates at the completion of the course.

Learn skills like mindfulness meditation, stress reduction, and communication. Open Path is actually a non-profit, helping people learn to control anger.

Logan Group Anger Management Classes

Logan Group

The Logan Group offers self-paced courses, focused on anger management skills. It also offers more focused courses, like how to deal with road rage.

  • Instant certificate of enrollment
  • Self-paced courses
  • Pay by course-hours
  • Free account
  • Anger management assessment
  • Slightly more expensive

It’s not always clear ahead of time which anger management courses are going to be acceptable to probation officers or the court. The Logan Group specializes in helping people navigate the court system while improving their mental health. As a result, they offer a letter of enrollment when you sign up.

With that letter, you can find out if the course meets your needs before you shell out the cash. The Logan Group offers a range of social services, including substance abuse counseling a

Anger Masters

Anger Masters

Anger Masters is accepted by courts everywhere in the U.S. Their courses focus on different aspects of anger management, including custom courses for specific needs.

  • Pay by course-hours
  • Alternatively, choose by course length in weeks
  • Guaranteed accepted by court or money back
  • Free certificate of completion
  • Accepted in all 50 states
  • Custom course lengths
  • Mailed proof of enrollment

Anger Masters focus solely on providing anger management classes to people across the United States. Their program is accepted by jurisdictions throughout the country. It’s possible to sign up for courses either by hour or by week. You can also start and stop the course at any time.

All course materials are provided for free, as is a certificate of completion.

How To Choose Online Anger Management Classes?

While most of us can think of one or two people, at least, who might benefit from anger management classes, really anyone can benefit[2]. At the heart of most approaches to this problem is an understanding of:

  1. Managing emotions in a healthy way
  2. Expressing those emotions for a positive result

Those are good skills for anyone to have, ones that most of us could stand to work on to some extent. Together, these are part of a skill called emotional intelligence.

For people who genuinely struggle with a wild temper, anger management courses can serve as a lifeline. Unsurprisingly, people don’t enjoy being around working with people who can’t control their temper. They can face issues in their workplace, their personal lives, and really any time they interact with other people.

All that is great, but in practical terms, an anger management class needs to meet a few requirements to actually be of any help. Expense is always a consideration, as are things like a digital certificate of competition or enrollment. The method of teaching anger management can also make a big difference.

Cost

Managing money is always stressful and often infuriating. It’s not a good sign if the cost of the anger management course sets off your temper. The good news, most anger management courses are very affordable.

The cost can vary depending on how you want to approach an anger management class. For some services, like Talkspace or Betterhelp, anger management is one piece of an overall approach to mental health and self-improvement. These services tend to be more expensive, but also have a wider array of options.

With those full-service mental health options, you work with a mental health professional and licensed therapist. There isn’t a specific endpoint and you can keep working as long as you need to.

More affordable options focus on anger management specifically. They tend to offer classes in 4 hour chunks with a registration fee, so you can decide how much you need and how much you can afford. Some services may charge extra certificate fees for a certificate of completion. Others will hand out a free certificate.

Court Approved

Sometimes, anger can get really out of hand or just increase the odds of bad luck striking. When that happens, just about anyone can end up in front of a judge after doing something unwise. It’s not unusual for the judge to include anger management as a part of the sentencing when that happens.

Obviously, an online anger management class is a lot more convenient. Anger management courses often have court approval and can offer an online certificate of completion. It might be harder to get with Talkspace, Betterhelp, or one of the services that allow you to work with licensed therapists.

Skills And Methods

Not all anger is the same. There is irritation anger, which may not be caused by any one incident but slowly builds as perceived injustices pile up throughout the day. Aggressive anger is pretty hard to miss when someone is willing to act in some socially inappropriate ways to express themselves.

Passive-aggressive anger is very common, in which we harbor anger issues and express them, but never clearly or unequivocally. Temper tantrums are all about unfulfilled needs. Even justifiable anger can be a problem.

A few anger management techniques[3] will work with any type of anger. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for example, is a really useful type of therapy that helps people gain control of their thoughts and emotions. It’s also good for general personal growth.

Meditation is also widely used as a method for controlling anger. Other methods may be specific to the situation or type of anger. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do anger management courses cost?

It can depend on the circumstances. However, a 4 hour course is usually between $ 25 and $ 30 dollars.

Are all anger management courses accepted by court?

Not every anger management class will satisfy a court’s requirement. It’s important to make sure the course you sign up for is acceptable. Many services offer letters of enrollment, which allow you to check before paying. Others offer a money back guarantee.

What are some anger management techniques?

Meditation, deep breathing, and stress management are all common techniques. Mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy also are used to address anger problems.

Extraction method

CBD for Life offers a 360-degree method of extraction and distillation. They currently use isolates in their CBD products, which requires three processes:

Crude: This is a natural plant-based extract that uses raw sugar cane alcohol (ethanol) to provide the first crude oil path.

Distillate: Once they have made the crude oil, they reprocess it to increase the CBD’s efficiency and further purify the oil. These distillation and refinement steps can be repeated several times until natural oil is obtained.

Isolate: Creating a great CBD isolate starts with a fine distillation. The oil is put under a lot of pressure. This pressure allows the CBD to split off from the rest of the distillate. Once this procedure is complete, a beautiful, crystallized powder (isolate) is formed.

Range of products

CBD for Life has a catalog spanning fourteen exclusive CBD products. The majority of its products are targeted at health and beauty, with several pain management products.

Here are just a few of the reviews customers have left on the company’s official webpage:

If you’re looking for a therapist who works from a Christian perspective, you may find more options online than in-person. Plus, with so many professional mental health counseling services available online, you have the ability to choose the option that best suits your needs. 

Before you choose an online therapy program, take the time to do your research. It’s particularly important to explore your options if you’re looking for a therapist who understands and lives by biblical principles – most therapists understand religion, but it’s a different matter to find one who follows the same faith as you. 

Here are some things to consider when looking for an online Christian counselor:

Know what you’re looking for

Anyone can benefit from therapy, but it’s important to have some idea of what you want to work on before selecting a therapist. You might choose a different therapist if you’re looking for family therapy, for example, than if you needed depression counseling. 

Try an online search

Once you have some idea what you’re looking for, you can complete a simple Google search to find licensed professionals online. The biggest decision you’ll have to make is between choosing a specific therapist or going with an online platform like Online-Therapy.com. Online counseling programs give you the ability to choose from a list of therapists and you may even be able to switch if your first pick doesn’t end up being a good fit.

Check the credentials

As you start looking for licensed therapists online, make sure you’re vetting their credentials. It’s important to find a counselor who shares your Christian values, but you also want to be sure they have been clinically trained and have real clinical experience. 

Do a trial run 

The benefit of online Christian counseling is that many companies offer a free or discounted trial so you don’t have to make a major commitment right away. The first session with a new therapist is always a little awkward, but you want to make sure you have some flexibility in finding a counselor you can connect with. 

Consider your budget

Professional mental health services are expensive but many people find that online therapy is more affordable than in-person counseling. Just keep in mind that not all insurance providers will cover online therapy, so do your research ahead of time. Fortunately, many online programs offer flexible payment plans. 

What Services Do Online Christian Counselors Provide?

Many online therapy companies give clients the ability to choose from a wide array of therapists to find the perfect fit – including offering Christian therapists. Licensed Christian counselors are trained to provide a variety of counseling services including marriage counseling, anxiety counseling, depression counseling, and more. Many specialize in common forms of mental illness along with other issues like eating disorders, premarital counseling, or family counseling.

]]>CBD Vs. THC: Key Differences, Benefits, and Side Effectshttps://www.healthcanal.com/health/cbd-vs-thc Wed, 07 Jul 2021 11:28:54 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=266938CBD Vs. THC

By now, CBD has become Wall street’s next big thing due to the CBD mania. The health benefits of CBD oil are promising. Many people have gotten their hands on CBD products, as it works very well against a lot of health issues. If you are new to the CBD trend, then you might want to know the differences between CBD and THC.

Firstly, to know what’s legal and what’s not. Secondly, to be aware of the benefits and side effects and lastly, to know what you are paying for. Dive into this article to know the difference between CBD and THC.

Differences between CBD and THC

Cannabis is made of nearly 120 compounds which are known as Cannabinoids. CBD and THC are the most common ones. Both marijuana and hemp contain THC and CBD. However, marijuana contains more THC and less CBD. On the other hand, hemp contains more CBD and less THC. Also, unlike THC, CBD doesn’t stimulate euphoric-like psychoactive sensations. 

How Does CBD Differ From THC?

Both CBD and THC come from natural compounds of cannabis Sativa plants. Both hemp and cannabis produce THC and CBD. Hemp is defined as a cannabis plant with less than 0.3% percent of THC. whereas, marijuana is a cannabis plant with more than 0.3% THC. CBD and THC are the most common cannabinoids that cause drug-like reactions in our bodies. 

Cannabis has higher concentrations of THC. Whereas, hemp has a higher concentration of CBD. An average strain of cannabis today holds about 12% THC[1] compared to 4% in 1995. 

CBD oil may have small amounts of THC in them, due to low levels of THC present in the hemp plant. Regular CBD oil should have 0.3 % or less to be legal at the federal level.

Hemp with 0.3% or less THC is considered legal according to the 2018 farm bill. THC is the crucial psychoactive compound in cannabis that gives sensations of high. Hence people associate it with the use of marijuana. 

It is available in oils, edibles, or by smoking cannabis, capsules, tinctures, and many more forms. Whereas CBD won’t give you sensations of high. CBD is available in the form of gummies, gels, supplements, oils, and extracts. 

Both CBD and THC interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system but have different effects. Although CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, they interact with different receptors in our brain. 

The difference between CBD and THC lies in various factors like their psychoactive components, forms of availability, legality, medical benefits, drug tests, and side effects. 

Differences in psychoactive components of CBD vs THC

Although the chemical structure is the same for both, their psychoactive effects differ. CBD also has psychoactive effects but different from THC. CBD does not produce high sensations associated with THC. 

THC binds to the cannabinoid (CB1) receptors in our brain and produces a sense of euphoria or high. Whereas, CBD has little binding effects, if at all, on CB1 receptors. It needs THC to bind to the CB1 receptors, which in turn helps reduce the unwanted psychoactive effects of THC, like sedation and euphoria.

THC, due to its high psychoactive response, is considered illegal in many US states. Whereas, CBD is considered a non-psychoactive compound, meaning that there’s an absence of euphoria that is associated with THC. 

Although CBD may have trace amounts of THC of 0.3 % or less which is considered legal, it is not enough to produce the psychoactive response. CBD is popular for its health benefits and the absence of psychoactive side effects.

Medical benefits of CBD vs THC 

CBD and THC have similar health benefits. They both help in relieving similar health conditions. However, there is the absence of euphoric effects in CBD, but are present in THC. For the same reason, some people prefer CBD. 

In June 2018, Food and drug administration (FDA) approved Epidiolex[2], the first medication that contains CBD, which can be prescribed to treat rare and difficult forms of epilepsy. 

CBD can help with conditions such as seizures, pain, inflammation, inflammatory bowel disease, psychosis or mental disorders, nausea, anxiety, migraine, and depression. Epidiolex is approved for the conditions above. 

THC helps with muscle spasticity, pain, glaucoma, to increase appetite, nausea, insomnia, and anxiety.

Side effects of CBD vs THC

Even at large doses, CBD is well tolerated. However, the side effects that occur by using CBD are due to the drug-to-drug interaction among other medications and CBD according to research by WHO[3]. side effects of CBD are weight loss, dizziness, fatigue, appetite changes, diarrhea.

Coming to THC, the side effects are due to the psychoactive properties of the compound. However, neither of them is fatal. But, high levels of THC may be linked to long-term adverse psychiatric effects. This is especially marked in adolescents who take large amounts of THC.

Although there is no data to prove that using cannabis can cause psychiatric disorders like schizophrenia, THC causes temporary side effects such as dry mouth, coordination problems, increased heart rate, red eyes, memory loss, slower reaction times, anxiety, and memory loss.   

The legality of CBD vs THC 

In the United States, laws on cannabis are changing from time and again. CBD is still categorized as a Schedule I drug under federal law. Hemp has been taken off from the Controlled Substance Act. However, the food and drug administration (FDA) and drug enforcement administrator (DEA) still classifies CBD as a schedule I drug.

Moreover, 33 states along with Washington D.C, have approved cannabis-related laws, which states that medical cannabis, even with high levels of THC, is legal. However, cannabis should be prescribed by a licensed physician. Furthermore, several states have made the use of THC and cannabis legal for recreational use. In states where cannabis is legal for medicinal or recreational use, you can buy CBD. However, before getting your hands on THC or CBD products, it’s important to know your state laws. 

You could face legal penalties if you possess cannabis-related products in a state where it’s still illegal. Even medical marijuana, in the absence of medical advice in states where it’s illegal to use CBD products could get you in trouble. 

Drug testing of CBD vs THC 

Cannabinoids like THC and CBD are stored in fat cells in our bodies. Your test can come positive on drug tests as it can show up for several days to weeks after consuming CBD products. However, not every test can detect CBD, but it is very much possible in CBD-sensitive tests. Most of the standard tests will look for the chemicals linked to THC, so usage of marijuana or THC might show up on screening.

Similarly, hemp can produce some amount of THC along with CBD, so the test might turn out positive for THC despite not consuming it. Remember, the products that claim to be free from THC may not be completely THC-free. So, for drug tests, you should not use any THC or CBD products.

What is medical marijuana?

Medical marijuana is approved by food and drug administration for the treatment of epilepsy. However, the US Drug Enforcement Administration considers marijuana as a schedule I drug, like heroin, ecstasy, and LSD, which are likely to be abused. 

It is derived from marijuana plants and chemicals to treat health conditions. When the CBD dominant version of medical marijuana is used, it is nothing but using CBD from hemp. The two cannabinoid medicines found and medically reviewed by FDA are Dronabinol and Nabilone to treat nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy.

The Cannabidiol drug named epidiolex was approved to treat two severe, rare forms of epilepsy named Lennox-gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. It is illegal to use or prescribe marijuana under medical advice in states that do not allow it. There is no federal law that allows using it illegally.

Is CBD legal?

Hemp-derived CBD products with less than 0.3% THC are legal at the federal level but are still illegal under a few state laws. In addition to this, cannabis-derived CBD products are illegal at the federal level, but are legal under a few state laws. Check local legislation, especially while traveling. Bear in mind that the FDA has not approved CBD products without prescription which are inaccurately labeled. It’s better to go with the ones that are approved by the FDA. 

Final words

Both CBD and THC pose health benefits and are considered safe under medical advice. But consider the drug interactions. Make sure to get your condition and the drugs you take medically reviewed before starting on CBD. Consult a qualified CBD Clinician and doctor before usage. Lastly, familiarize yourself with the state laws before using CBD or THC.

]]>Does CBD Show Up On A Drug Test – How Do Drug Tests Work?https://www.healthcanal.com/health/does-cbd-show-up-on-a-drug-test Wed, 07 Jul 2021 05:09:30 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267033CBD Show Up on a Drug Test

CBD offers an excellent set of benefits for many chronic health issues. However, some people may feel afraid if they are going to fail a drug test for CBD. And, you may also wonder about the same. The result of the CBD drug test depends on several factors.

Typically, Cannabidiol will not show up on drug tests. However, there are many CBD products that contain traces of THC, about which you should be concerned, in some cases. To be legal, for any CBD product, the permitted[1] amount of THC is 0.3%. So, how do you determine if you are going to pass a drug test or not? Well, read this article to know everything about it.

Does CBD Show Up on a Drug Test?

CBD drug screening varies from method to method, so do the cut-off values of tetrahydrocannabinol. If the CBD you consume has less than the permitted tetrahydrocannabinol percentage, you will not test positive. Anything more than 0.3% may lead to a positive drug test result. 

The Relation Between Different CBD Products and THC

Not every CBD product is regulated by the FDA[1]. This makes it difficult to know exactly what is used to make them. There are several factors that impact the levels of THC and the chances of its contamination. For example, the method of THC harvesting plays a crucial role here.

However, depending on several factors, some CBD products may contain more THC than others. Here are the prominent CBD types and their THC values:

Full-spectrum CBD

Full-spectrum CBD extracts have all the natural compounds that occur in the plants they are extracted from. To be precise, full-spectrum CBD products contain several types of cannabinoids including THC. 

The amount of THC in full-spectrum CBD products may vary from one product to another. However, these products should not contain more than 0.3 THC, to be deemed legal. Not every manufacturer will disclose the amount of THC. So, make sure to purchase the products with less than 0.3 THC, to not fail a drug test.

Broad-spectrum CBD

Similar to full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD products also contain several terpenes and cannabinoids. However, THC is completely removed when preparing broad-spectrum CBD products. So, you do not have to worry about even the trace amounts of THC here, as it is a THC-free product.

CBD Isolate

CBD isolate is nothing but pure CBD. These are derived from hemp plants. And, any hemp-based CBD product should not have THC. So, you need not worry about a drug test after consuming any form of CBD isolate, be it oil or tincture. 

What are the Different Types of CBD Drug Tests?

Any typical CBD drug test screens for THC or THC-COOH, one of the many THC metabolites. According to Mayo Clinic[2], the federal workplace drug screening cut-off scores are established to determine a drug test result.

To be clearer, even if you pass a drug test, it doesn’t mean there is no THC in your system. However, if your drug test result is negative, it means that the amount of THC in your system is under the cut-off value. 

By the way, different drug testing methods come with different detection windows and cut-off values. For better understanding, here is a look at different THC drug tests:

Urine Tests

This is one of the most common workplace drug testing methods. For a positive test result, the THC-COOH concentration must be at least 50 nanograms[3] per milliliter in your urine sample. Anything less than that is not easily detectable in urine testing. 

The detection window of urine testing may vary a lot depending on the frequency and dosage of your CBD usage. Typically, the THC metabolites stay detectable in urine for 3 to 15 days after using CBD. 

If you are using heavier CBD doses, that too frequently, the metabolites may stay longer in urine, extending the detection window of a urine test up to 30 days.

Blood Tests 

This isn’t a very common workplace drug testing method. Because THC metabolites don’t stay long in your blood. However, it is possible to trace through plasma[4], as the metabolites stay for as long as seven days. 

Usually, blood tests are conducted to detect current impairment, such as driving after taking Marijuana or other substances that contain THC. For a positive drug test result, your blood sample has to have a THC concentration of at least 1 ng ml, 2 ng ml, or 5 ng ml, depending on the state you are living in. 

Saliva Tests

Unlike Urine and Blood testings, oral drug testing doesn’t have an established cut-off value to detect THC positive. However, the Journal of Medical Toxicology[5] published a set of recommendations that suggest 4 nanograms per millimeter as the cut-off limit. 

THC can be detected in oral fluids up to 72 hours after you take CBD. The detection window could extend further if you are a chronic and heavy user of Cannabis. 

Hair Tests

This mode of screening is rarely used. Similar to saliva tests, hair testing also doesn’t have a federal cut-off limit. However, the private industry considers 1 picogram per milligram[6] as the cut-off value for a hair test. THC compounds stay detectable for up to 90 days in your hair follicles.

Can CBD Convert into THC in Your Body?

There are different arguments about this particular aspect. Some say that CBD could turn into THC under a few circumstances. While, on the other hand, some say that the claim is not proven yet.

One of the main arguments is that CBD can turn into THC under acidic conditions in your stomach. However, this study[7] has debunked that claim, as they found no medical evidence of CBD effects that are associated with THC.  

How to Avoid Products That Contain THC

If you don’t want to test positive in a drug testing environment, you would have to simply avoid consuming any CBD products that have more than legal amounts of THC. In most cases of positive drug test results, the culprit is excess THC. So, here are a few ways you could follow to buy THC-free products:

Read the Product Description

Purchasing anything related to CBD is going to be tricky. Especially when you google “buy CBD oil near me”, you will see a lot of products. Making the right choice is not easy at all. Moreover, if you don’t want the drug test result to be positive, you need to be extra careful to avoid THC. Here, reading the product information carefully can go a long way.

CBD products that are derived from Marijuana or hemp may likely carry THC. So, when buying such items, make sure that the value is equal to or less than the legal limits. 

Choose the Products That List CBD Concentration

It is better to buy products that display the concentration of CBD and other cannabinoids. However, the concentration may vary depending on the type of product whether it is an oil, edible, or tincture. If you are trying to buy products with very high potency available, try to see the tetrahydrocannabinol percentage. 

At the same time, try to see where the hemp-derived products are made. Because the quality of hemp differs from state to state. High-quality hemp doesn’t contain high amounts of compounds that could lead to a positive test result. 

How to Pass a CBD Drug Test Naturally?

To avoid being tested positive, you can simply stop using products with either CBD, hemp, marijuana, or cannabis. Or, you can opt for detoxifying your body and getting rid of any amounts of Tetrahydrocannabinol. Here are a few ways to do that:

Exercise

If you are looking to detox from cannabis or marijuana, working out is one of the best options. Tetrahydrocannabinol is stored in your fat cells. So, when the fat is burned out while exercising, so does tetrahydrocannabinol. 

Moreover, exercise stimulates an endocannabinoid called anandamide, which gives you a euphoric sensation. So, working out not only detoxes your body from marijuana, it also helps you produce more endocannabinoids. 

Proper Hydration

When you drink water regularly, your body stays healthy while it also removes any kind of toxins. Hydration is a great way to detox yourself, even from marijuana or cannabis. Good amounts of hydration help you expel tetrahydrocannabinol from showing up on drug screening. 

Healthy Diet

Avoid foods with high amounts of sugar, sodium, and fat, if you are trying to detox from marijuana. Foods such as junk and red meat slow down your metabolism, thus helping marijuana elements stay longer. A nutritious food that includes a lot of fruits, leafy greens, and veggies aid in detox. 

Conclusion

CBD offers a lot of healthy benefits, especially as a treatment for chronic pain issues. However, if you consume anything that has a lot of tetrahydrocannabinol, you will test positive in a drug test. If you are working in a company that has strict policies regarding cannabis usage, you might want to be careful. 

To avoid any hassles, try to go with the products that have a tetrahydrocannabinol percentage that is permitted by the FDA. Even if you take only reasonable amounts, work on detoxifying yourself from time to time.

]]>3 Ways CBD Can Improve Your Sex Lifehttps://www.healthcanal.com/sexual-health/cbd-for-sex-life Wed, 07 Jul 2021 04:54:58 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267035CBD Can Improve Your Sex Life

When people think of the benefits of CBD oil, improving your sex life is probably not one of the first things that pop up in your head. 

You might be surprised to learn that your sex life too can also be improved with CBD use. 

3 Ways CBD Can Improve Your Sex Life

Cannabidiol (CBD) could be great for your sex life because it:

  • Reduces anxiety and stress 
  • Increases libido 
  • Relieves pain 

CBD and THC are the two major cannabinoids in cannabis plants. THC gives cannabis users the high while CBD does not have psychoactive properties. 

In recent years, CBD use has increased exponentially. It is believed to help improve chronic pain and anxiety.  

However, your sex life could benefit from CBD use. Conditions that make you uncomfortable during sex and dampen your experience such as performance anxiety, stress, or pain, could be improved with CBD use. 

CBD could also help with arousal and libido through its effect on your brain and blood flow to your genitals.

How CBD can help improve sex

Reduces Anxiety and Stress 

Relieving anxiety and anxiety-related disorders is one of the major reasons why people use CBD. 

Performance anxiety could negatively affect your sexual interaction. Worrying about your sexual performance before or during your sexual interaction might only cause you an unsatisfactory sexual encounter. 

CBD oil is excellent at relaxing your nerves. You can focus more on enjoying sex than worrying about how you will perform. 

Stress too can dampen your sexual function.  

Work, school, family, and finances can all contribute to stress. Lots of people turn to alcohol for stress relief. However, it does more harm than good for your health and sex life. 

Under stressful conditions, your body goes into conservation mode. The hormone cortisol[1] mediates most of the changes you experience under stress. 

Cortisol can steal some of the pleasure from your sex life. Some women might be robbed of their sex drive completely while men might find it difficult to get and sustain an erection. 

Furthermore, under stressful situations, you are less likely to focus on intimacy. You might find your mind drifting to other matters. Hence, attaining climax might be difficult or almost impossible. 

Excessive alcohol consumption[2] is linked to liver disease and other health conditions. Alcohol also dampens your sensitivity. Therefore, it could turn down your sex drive. 

Consuming excess alcohol to manage stress will only bring on more trouble.  

Instead of attempting to drown your stress and anxiety in wine or beer bottles, consider CBD. 

CBD oil is not as damaging to your body as alcohol is. Rather, it offers other benefits for your health such as weight loss, stress relief, and pain relief.

With CBD oil you can feel more relaxed and pay more attention to your intimacy for more pleasure. 

Less stress and anxiety equal more sexual pleasure. 

Increases Libido 

CBD works by activating receptors of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in your body.  The ECS also responds to cannabinoids produced by your body. 

Studies have identified these ECS receptors in various parts of your body including your brain and sex organs. 

Some studies find that excessive cannabis use in males decreased their sex drive while others support CBD use for improved libido. 

Anxiety and stress could be responsible for decreased libido in some individuals. Therefore, CBD’s ability to reduce stress and anxiety could translate to improved libido. 

Sadly research into CBD use for improved libido is limited and there are no dosage recommendations. 

Anecdotal evidence from users supports CBD use to improve libido and sexual satisfaction. 

Therefore, you could give it a go. You will have you monitor the effects of CBD on your sex life to decide if it is doing a good job at improving it. 

Some studies[3] show a higher prevalence of erectile dysfunction amongst cannabis users. However, CBD use could help you with erectile dysfunction. The cannabis plant[4] and CBD products have been used in some cultures to improve erectile dysfunction. The mechanism through which CBD could help erectile dysfunction is barely understood due to limited research. 

People with low sex drive might benefit from CBD oil use. Some studies show that cannabis could activate parts of the brain[5] that control sexual arousal. Therefore increasing your sex drive. 

CBD could also be beneficial for more enjoyable sex and might be linked to increased sexual function in men[6]. A study found that 72% of men and 76% of women[7] admitted to experiencing stronger orgasms with CBD use. 

As a vasodilator, CBD can help reduce blood pressure[8]. Therefore it could encourage blood flow to your genitals to encourage arousal and satisfaction.

Most of these sexual effects of CBD on libido and sex drive have not been fully established by scientific research. 

You might know a friend who knows a friend whose sex life has benefited from CBD use. So, consider taking a few CBD products moderately with your doctor’s approval and gauging their effects on your sex life.  

Relieves Pain 

Pain relief is one of the popular uses of CBD oil and this could come in handy for your sex life. 

If you are having painful sex, it could be due to[9] endometriosis, depression, vaginismus, or anxiety. 

Painful sex is almost a taboo topic. Yet, it is more prevalent than you probably realize.  

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists estimates that three out of four women[10] will experience painful sexual intercourse at some point in their life. 

Trauma, muscular tension, or inflammation could affect your sexual experience. 

If you feel embarrassed to discuss your painful sex with anyone, it is not unusual.  Many people have trouble discussing such intimate matters and seeking medical help. 

However, you should never feel ashamed to seek help for your sexual and reproductive health.  

If anything is making you uncomfortable during sex, discuss it with your healthcare provider during your next appointment. 

You could also supplement your medical treatment for painful sex with a holistic approach. 

CBD could help decrease your discomfort during sex. It is popular for reducing anxiety which could make sexy time uncomfortable. 

Furthermore, vaginal dryness could also be responsible for painful sex. In that case, lubricants containing CBD oil can be helpful due to their anti-inflammatory properties. 

Getting the Most Out of CBD for Sex 

Simply getting into CBD use without prior experience might not yield positive results. However, with the right tips, you could make the most out of CBD use for your sex life. 

Use Quality CBD Products 

Good product quality means you are likely to get the best from CBD use. Some shady companies contain less CBD than they state on their packaging.  

They might also contain fillers that offer zero benefits. 

Therefore, when choosing CBD products consider going for established brands with lab results to back their claims. 

Do not just stop there.

Read what real people like you have to say about the product. Reviews can help you understand how effective a product truly is. 

Do not Wait to Use It 

Do not wait till you are in the middle of sex to use CBD. Sometimes, CBD might need some time to work on your endocannabinoid system.  

Therefore, you might not necessarily feel its effects immediately. 

Consider using your CBD products about 60 minutes[11] before sexual activity so that it can have some time to work. 

Use Your Ideal Dose 

Taking too much or too little CBD might mean that you will not get the results that you would like. 

So, how much CBD do you need to take?

You will have to figure it out yourself. It will take some trial and error, experimenting with different doses to get the best one for you. 

Of course, start slow and work your way up to the best dose for you. 

Conclusion 

You can improve sexual pleasure with CBD use. 

CBD is popular for reducing anxiety, stress, and pain, all of which could negatively impact your sex life. 

Furthermore, CBD oil could promote the flow of blood to your genitals to encourage arousal and libido for a more satisfying sexual experience. 

To get the best from CBD use ensure you are using a high-quality product, use your ideal dose, and give it time to work.

Garlic has been a key ingredient used in many Indian and Eastern kitchens for the last few hundred years. Not only is the raw garlic very healthy, but it also enhances the taste of food immensely. However, not many people are aware of its effective weight loss properties. So, how to use raw garlic for weight loss?

Garlic oil is popular among obese people, as it helps in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels[1]. However, the recent trend is to use CBD to lose weight along with garlic oil. While many people use garlic for its flavor and aroma, it also offers a lot of health benefits, as it is rich in several nutrients and vitamins. 

How to use raw garlic for weight loss?

Garlic can help you lose weight in a natural and healthy manner. Since it doesn’t taste very well on it’s own, you can consume it by including it in your tea or milk. Some of the famous combinations are garlic honey tea, garlic-lemon tea, garlic and milk, and unpeeled garlic with honey. 

How does garlic help in your weight loss journey?

Garlic brings in a multitude of health benefits, as it boosts metabolism and helps in burning excess fat. It also suppresses appetite and keeps your hunger pangs at bay. Out of all, weight loss is probably the most significant among raw garlic’s health benefits. 

If you are wondering how it helps you lose weight, there have already been several scientific pieces of research that proved the efficiency of garlic in helping weight loss. Here are a few things to demonstrate the working mechanism of garlic:

Boosts Metabolism

You can effectively boost your metabolism[2] if you consume garlic regularly. When your metabolism is enhanced, your body burns more calories to increase the energy levels. By doing so, you shed more weight, which helps you further in your weight loss journey. 

Regulates Appetite

Garlic is also very well-known for its appetite-suppressant qualities[3]. To lose weight, you need to control your hunger, where you can take the help of garlic. As you feel less hungry, you tend to eat lesser food, which in turn helps you keep a check on calorie intake. 

Burns Fat

Anyone who is trying to lose weight should focus on burning excess fat in their body. And, to be honest, it is not an easy task. However, if you consume garlic regularly, you can burn fat reasonably. According to this study[4], garlic has a significant effect on burning fat, which makes your weight loss goals further. 

Detoxifying Agent 

Apparently, garlic also has the ability to detoxify the body[5]. When you include garlic in your diet, it may help eliminate toxins from your digestive system, which plays a key role in regulating your body weight. The better your digestive system, the easier it is to lose weight. 

Promotes Liver Health

This is probably one of the lesser-known health benefits of garlic. Anyhow, garlic also may help boost the health of your liver. As per this study[6], people with fatty liver who consume garlic lose weight significantly. Because, liver plays a key role in metabolizing fat. So, a healthy liver with the help of garlic can support your weight loss journey. 

4 Ways to Use Raw Garlic for Weight Loss

After reading the immense health benefits of eating garlic, you must be wondering how you can eat garlic and lose weight. Well, there are several ways to consume this amazing vegetable. For starters, you can eat 2 3 cloves of raw garlic on an empty stomach or simply mix some raw garlic with water and drink it. However, it doesn’t taste very well on its own. Of course, for the sake of your taste buds, here are 4 ways of eating garlic you should try:

Garlic and Honey Tea

This is one of the simplest ways of consuming garlic and reaping its health benefits. For this, take a cup of warm water and add fresh garlic with a tablespoon of raw honey. That’s it. You can start consuming it instantly and enjoy its vitamin[7] and nutrition properties. Especially, people who have vitamin b6 deficiency can benefit immensely from this tea.

Raw garlic and honey help you burn calories, as they both are good at promoting metabolism[8]. Additionally, honey is also healthy for your overall immunity. Apart from that, honey is also known to[9] boost your energy levels. This tea tastes sweet with a hint of pungent flavor. Moreover, since the process of making this tea is very simple, you can easily make it every day and enhance your health. 

Ginger, Garlic, and Lemon Tea

The process of cooking this tea may be a bit complex, but this tea can be highly beneficial to your health, as it brings a lot of vitamin and nutrition properties. You just have to spend 10 minutes of your time to prepare this. By the way, this tea may be more effective when you consume it on an empty stomach.

Take a couple of raw garlic cloves and chop them nicely into several pieces. Now, take a tiny piece of ginger and crush it until it becomes pasty. Now, add some lemon juice to it and mix them thoroughly. Finally, take a glass of warm water and add the mixture to it. For better taste, you can also add a teaspoon of raw honey. Boil it for a minute before consuming this juice. 

This tea is very potent for weight loss, especially if you consume it regularly. Ginger is another valuable herb[10] that has fat-burning qualities, which in turn helps you lose excess body weight. Ginger also helps in managing[11] blood pressure, thus reducing the risk of heart disease. According to this published study[12], lemon juice has promoted the burning process of body fat. Along with that, it also carries a lot of other nutrition benefits as well.

Garlic Milk

First things first, avoid consuming this on an empty stomach, as milk doesn’t do well when taken in the early mornings. Anyhow, the idea of garlic and milk may sound outlandish to you, but it does have several benefits for weight loss. 

To make this, crush raw garlic cloves and mix the crushed raw garlic with water. Then, take a cup of fresh milk and boil it for 10 minutes. Now, add the mixture along with tiny amounts of turmeric powder and black pepper. Leave it to boil for a couple of minutes. Then, drink it before it becomes cold. 

Milk offers[13] a lot of weight loss benefits such as increasing fecal excretion of fat and regulating appetite. Piperine[14], one of the active compounds of black pepper, helps in promoting the fat burning process, thus promoting your weight loss. On the other hand, turmeric helps[15] purify and relax blood vessels and reduces blood pressure, which helps in keeping heart disease at bay. 

Unpeeled Garlic With Honey

Another way to use garlic for weight loss is by consuming a combination of unpeeled garlic and honey. Unpeeled garlic gives you more health benefits than raw garlic, as the former is rich in phenylpropanoid antioxidants[16], which not only detoxifies your body but is also known to boost fat burning as well. 

For eating this, you have to put a few unpeeled garlic cloves in a jar with some raw honey and mix them well. Then, keep this mixture in your refrigerator the whole night. Once you wake up, try consuming this on an empty stomach. 

If you make this a part of your diet, you can enjoy several health benefits such as weight loss, better immunity, and optimum blood pressure. It also helps to relax blood vessels as well. 

Other Health Benefits of Raw Garlic

Like we discussed earlier, garlic is indeed a special herb that carries a lot of health benefits. When you make it a part of your regular diet, you can lead a healthy life. Here are some of the many benefits it offers:

Contains Medicinal Compounds

Garlic contains many compounds that offer several health benefits. Allicin, S-Allylcysteine, and Diallyl disulfide are some of the popular compounds present in garlic that enhance your health. The sulfur in garlic can enhance your digestive system. 

High in Nutrition and Low in Calories

When eating garlic, you don’t have to worry about calories, as it comes with only a few. However, garlic contains high amounts of vitamin b6, manganese, selenium, vitamin c fiber, and calcium among others. 

Improves Bone Health

Garlic is also known to promote bone health. Especially in women, it stimulates estrogen, which helps in preventing bone loss. When garlic is eaten with honey, it helps in better bone health along with reducing inflammation. 

Conclusion

Garlic is proven to help in burning fat and calories. Along with that, it supports your immune system, enhances your digestion, reduces cholesterol levels, and detoxifies your body. With such a wide array of benefits, you should definitely include it in your diet. Along with garlic, you can also use cumin to lose pounds quickly. 

As it promotes a healthy and natural weight loss, consume it regularly. However, keep in mind that garlic produces a bad odor if you overeat it. So, add little amounts of it, but do it consistently.

]]>8 Signs Of A High-Quality CBD Oil – How to Find A Quality Producthttps://www.healthcanal.com/health/signs-high-quality-cbd-oil Tue, 06 Jul 2021 10:33:51 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=267039High-Quality CBD Oil

The popularity and usage of CBD is growing day by day, as many people like the way it makes them feel. Many people are using CBD oil to support their health. Due to its medicinal properties, the demand for cannabidiol for health and wellness is high. To meet this demand, new CBD companies are emerging time and again. But the key is to find high-quality CBD oil. In this read, you will learn the signs of a high-quality CBD oil. 

How to identify high-quality CBD oil?

  1. Extraction process of CBD oil
  2. Product made of naturally grown hemp
  3. Labelling of CBD products
  4. Third-party testing
  5. Certificate of analysis
  6. Cannabinoid profile
  7. Effective absorption of CBD oil
  8. Less than 0.3% THC

8 signs of a high-quality CBD oil

When it comes to buying a product, product reviews are not just enough to determine the quality. Many factors make a high-quality CBD oil, so having the knowledge of the terminology, extraction process, labeling, and many other factors can go a long way. So these 8 signs can help you find high-quality CBD oil near you.

 Extraction process of CBD oil

The highest quality CBD oils use supercritical CO2[1] to extract. Safe solvents like ethanol and CO2 reduce the residual solvent toxicity. Avoid CBD oils that use butane, propane, hexane, or pentane, as they leave behind toxic contaminants. Look for CBD oils that use ethanol or CO2 for extraction.

A solventless extract like rosin tinctures made with organic carrier oils is nontoxic, unlike butane and hexane. The use of carbon dioxide gives a cleaner and healthier product, as CO2 extraction does not contain any solvents or chemical residues. 

Moreover, due to the properties of CO2 gas, supercritical CO2 extraction effuses through the entire plant matter, whereas the liquid properties of CO2 allow it to efficiently extract the compounds. Some labs use liquid CO2, whereas, some use CO2 gas. CO2 acts as a solvent and separates plant material and essential compounds, giving you a high-quality full-spectrum CBD oil.

Product made of naturally grown hemp 

The hemp plant is well known for absorbing everything that is in soil and that shows up in the foliage. Hence it is also called a hyperaccumulator plant. It can absorb both essential vitamins and minerals as well as toxic metals. This includes toxic metals like lead, mercury, arsenic, iron, cadmium, zinc, and copper. 

The USDA does not certify hemp as organic. However, some reputed farms give information about where the hemp was grown. And some also claim their plants are pesticide-free. CBD oil is a mixture of cannabis oil and carrier oil. So, look for the products that use USDA certified organic carrier oil, instead of unknown purity industrial oil.

The safest CBD oil is always sourced from the area where the government certifies the produce. Moreover, their fields are often tested for toxic substances. The oil must be tested by a lab accredited with ISO/IEC 17025:2017 as they make sure to certify products that are free from heavy metals, pesticides, solvent residue, bacteria, and fungus. 

Labelling of CBD products

A reputable company with the best CBD products will have proper labeling of CBD content that is precisely measurable. Look for concentration or the milligrams count on the bottle. Higher the number, the more potent. An effective CBD oil contains 250mg- 1000mg per 10 ml of the bottle. Anything less than that is a waste of money. 

The amount of CBD is mentioned in milligrams for the entire product and not for serving or a dose. Look for milligrams by milliliter(mg/ml), because this determines the concentration of CBD in a product.

 A CBD oil bottle of 2000mg CBD oil comes to 40mg/ml only. Moreover, A pack of 300 mg CBD gummies may contain only 10mg per gummy with 30 gummies. Best products offer nearly 5mg of CBD per capsule of gummy. 

However, most times it is written as 50mg of hemp extract per ml and will not mention the CBD content in that 50mg or 1 ml of hemp extract. The product you are buying should clearly label the contents and you as a customer should not be guessing. 

Third-party testing 

Make sure the product is verified by third-party testing, where the lab is an independent testing facility and it doesn’t hold any stake in this CBD product. A reputable company keeps these results public on the packaging or an insert or put it on their website. 

Many companies with good quality products and customer reviews are so proud of themselves that they will not keep calm, they will make sure you find the reports easily. Moreover, third-party lab tests are important as they state the concentrations of CBD and THC and even if they contain trace amounts of heavy metals.

If you happen to buy CBD gummies at a gas station or a CBD e-liquid at a vape store, make sure to scan the QR code on the package. Scan with your phone to see the lab reports. The State of Indiana has passed a law demanding all CBD products to be traceable with a scannable QR code on the package.

Certificate of analysis

A high-quality CBD product from a reputable brand comes with a detailed certificate of analysis with lab results from independent labs. As mentioned earlier, scan the QR code to see the lab reports. If it is not available, email the company and demand a COA. 

Firstly, cross-check the CBD, THC levels on COA and product labels to make sure they match. These inaccuracies are a major issue while buying CBD products.

COA is a way to unveil the exact composition of the CBD product. Consider the COA invalid if the test was done long ago or if the lot number does not match or if you see a change in packaging. Always check the lot number and date.

Cannabinoid profile

If you have a CBD product that is a full spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD, look for the cannabinoids[2] present in the CBD product. Along with the CBD and COA, the product should also contain a list of cannabinoids like cannabidiol acid( CBDA), cannabigerol(CBG), cannabinol(CBN), and cannabichromene(CBC). The list of cannabinoids should contain most of these. 

Some products may deceive you by mentioning hemp seed oil, or Cannabis sativa oil, or hemp seeds and do not mention anything about cannabidiol or hemp extract. These contents are not the same as CBD. Due to ever-changing laws, some CBD products will be mentioned as hemp extract. 

Effective absorption of CBD oil

Did you know only 6% of CBD of standard tinctures is bioavailable? To increase the bioavailability, a new class of liposomal CBD products[3] that have greater absorption is used. The technologies like liposomal, water-soluble, nanoemulsions, microemulsions, and micellized CBD are known for high absorption. Look for these terms or Nano CBD. liposomal nano emulsified CBD products have an immediate onset and an absorption rate of 6 times higher. 

Traditional CBD tinctures may be slow working, but they are more affordable. Carrier oils not only preserve the CBD, but also help our body absorb it. For the same reason, the main ingredients used are grape seed oil, olive oil, MCT oil, or cold-pressed hemp seed oil. Make sure your oil has them.

Less than 0.3% THC

CBD oil cannot contain THC above 0.3%[4]. The percentage higher than this is considered marijuana and may be illegal. CBD oils made of hemp may have trace amounts of THC, usually 0.2 % or less. 

But it will not make you high, however, low standard processing may boost the THC levels to an extent that creates psychotropic effects. It is not only a low-quality product but can also be illegal according to the state you live in. 

Benefits of a high-quality CBD product?

A high-quality CBD oil can have potential benefits on health issues. It has effects such as anti-seizure, pain reliever, neuroprotective, anxiety reliever, anti-acne and anti-inflammatory, and in cancer treatment. Apart from these health benefits, a high-quality CBD oil may last longer. As it has a long shelf life.  

Final words 

The more of these signs a product claims, the more one can rely on them. There may not be a single brand or a product that matches all these signs. And then, there may also be some amazing products that do not match many of these signs. Always buy full-spectrum oils made from whole-plant extracts, as they are considered signs high-quality CBD oil. 

Although CBD isolate is considered a pure form of CBD, it is made of cheap materials that lack flavonoids, terpenes, and cannabinoids. So, always consider these tips and further look for customer reviews before investing in a good quality product.

]]>How To Burn Inner Thigh Fat: Explore 5 Toning Exerciseshttps://www.healthcanal.com/life-style-fitness/how-to-lose-inner-thigh-fat Tue, 06 Jul 2021 10:24:10 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=266942How To Burn Inner Thigh Fat

One of the most stubborn areas to get rid of fat on your body is on your inner thighs. At times, it may even feel like everything you eat goes straight to them — especially for women who have evolved[1] to keep fat in the thigh and hip area, giving them a pear-shaped body. So, how to lose inner thigh fat?

Yet, with the right diet, a few lifestyle changes, and targeted exercises, you can slim down the thighs giving you the lean look you desire. 

How to Lose Inner Thigh Weight

You will have to lose weight overall to reduce the fat in your thighs, and to do this, you can:

  1. Eat a balanced diet. More than cutting calories, what you eat is more important than how much you eat. We will discuss this more in-depth later.
  2. Eat the right amount of calories. When dieting, many focus on not going above their daily calorie intake goal, but it is also essential that you eat enough. Not eating enough calories can sabotage your weight loss goals because your body goes into starvation mode, and your metabolism slows down. So eat the right amount – enough that you burn more than what you eat but at the same time enough that your body doesn’t think there is food scarcity and goes into starvation mode.
  3. Set realistic goals. Setting goals that are realistic is a way to keep yourself motivated and on track. If you have a big goal, break it up into mini-goals so you can feel your progress. Small wins can help motivate you and keep you on track.
  4. Exercise daily. Exercise doesn’t have to be intense sweat sessions all the time. You can alternate between high-intensity workouts with low-intensity ones. What’s essential is to keep your body moving to burn calories and stored fat. Even making minor adjustments such as walking to the store instead of taking your car or taking the stairs at work instead of the elevator can help you reach your weight loss goals faster.
  5. Don’t rely on your scale. The numbers on your bathroom scale do not tell the whole truth about your body’s weight loss. It can fluctuate depending on how much water weight you have. Water weight can cause you to gain additional pounds and bloat parts of your body, like your face and stomach. Take note of your weight, but at the same time, also consider your body measurements, how you feel overall, and how your clothes fit.
  6. Talk to your doctor. Before embarking on any diet or exercise program, it is always essential to consult with your doctor first, especially if you have any chronic illnesses. Your doctor can ensure your diet and exercise plans are safe and can help you achieve your goal.

With so many types of diets, exercise programs, and supplements available, it is not as clear-cut when someone says all you need to do to lose thigh fat is maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly. 

Five Exercises for Your Inner Thighs

Diet and exercise programs aren’t just one size fits all. Many factors[2] need to be considered when selecting a diet and exercise program suited for you. Your metabolic health, gender, activity level, age, current weight, and height could make some diet and exercise programs more effective for you than for someone else and vice versa.

Excess body fat on your thighs can form as subcutaneous fat, fat just below the skin, or intramuscular fat, which is fat within your muscles. There is no way to focus on one body part for weight loss. 

To help tone your inner thighs, try doing the following exercises to engage your thigh muscles. Depending on your level of fitness, you can start with two to three sets of 8 to 10 reps for each activity, except for the seated bridge and seated hand push. Start with three sets for twenty seconds per set for the seated bridge and one-minute per set for the seated hand push.

  1. Back Kick: Stand on one leg, with the knee slightly bent. Raise your other leg slightly behind you while keeping your core and your butt tight. Bend forward, keeping your body straight, as you kick the lifted leg back. Squeeze your butt muscles as you return to your starting position. Repeat with the other leg.
  2. Butt Lifts. Lie on the floor and keep your back flat, knees bent, and feet flat.  With your arms at your sides, raise your pelvis towards the ceiling, creating a 45° angle with your body. Flex your thighs and butt, hold the position for a few seconds, and lower your body.
  3. Seated Leg Lifts. Sit on a chair with your feet flat on the floor and your hands on the chair’s sides. Bend your knees at a 90° angle. Lift your right and hold for 30 seconds, then lower your leg. Repeat with the other leg.
  4. Seated Bridge. Sit on a chair with your feet flat on the floor, bending your knees at a 90° angle. With your hands at the side of the chair, lift your hips, letting your feet and hands support your body. Hold for 20 seconds, then slowly lower your body. Work your way up to holding this position for one minute as your body gets used to it.
  5. Seated Hand Push. Sit on a chair with your feet flat on the floor, and your knees bent at a 90° angle. Put your hands on the outside of your knees. Simultaneously push your knees in with your hands while pushing your knees outwards and hold this for one minute.

How to Get Rid of Inner Thigh Fat

While some body fat is essential to protect your organs and to sustain life, more often than not, many of us have unhealthy levels of excess fat. Mainly determined by your DNA, women tend to store their extra body fat in their lower abdomen, hips, and inner thighs, while men tend to hold theirs in their stomachs. 

Before you start your diet and exercise programs, make sure you consult with your doctor first and get their help tailoring a fitness program that’s best for you.

To lose fat on your inner thighs, you must restrict your calorie intake to where you’re consuming less than what your body is using, and of course, exercising daily. 

Bear in mind that limiting your calorie intake does not mean starving yourself. Doing so may even prevent you from reaching your fitness goals. How many calories you should have in a day depends on multiple factors such as your age, activity level, and current weight, to name a few. 

Make sure your diet consists of whole, unprocessed foods and that you do a combination of high-intensity interval and strength training when you exercise. 

Engaging your thigh muscles as you exercise is one way to tone them, but make sure you also work out other muscle groups. Doing this can help you lose weight all over your body faster. Increasing your muscle mass also boosts your metabolism, allowing you not just to look toned, but keep you burning calories even while at rest.

Making minor adjustments to your lifestyle, such as eating more protein, eliminating processed food, refined carbohydrates, and sugary drinks from your diet, and consciously making an effort to be more active during the day, can help you achieve your goal of reducing fat on your inner thighs.

Suppose you have a regular exercise routine and keep a healthy diet? In that case, you don’t need to depend on the weighing scale much to tell you of your progress. Feeling better about your body, having more energy, and fitting into your clothes better are other telltale signs that you are on the road to achieving your fitness goals.

Understanding Thigh Fat

Storing fat in the thighs and hips helped women survive through famine and drought during the caveman times. When women go through pregnancy and breastfeeding, their bodies need an additional 1,000 calories[3] a day on top of their basic caloric needs. They used the fat stored in their hips and thighs during pregnancy and breastfeeding when there wasn’t sufficient food available, helping both them and their offspring to survive. 

Females who can easily store fat in these areas had higher chances of surviving and, at the same time, passed down this ability to their offspring. One reason why your thighs are one of the most challenging places on your body to shed fat is that it could literally be written in your DNA to store it![4]

Men store most of their excess fat on their abdomen, but they can also store fat in their thighs. A study[5] from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health discovered that men with high amounts of thigh and abdomen fat are at a higher risk of developing advanced and fatal prostate cancer.

Most of us in these modern times hardly experience shortages in food. In reality, we even have food excesses more often than not — making it even more challenging to lose weight. The best way to reduce thigh fat is really through diet and exercise.

Thigh Fat and Cellulite

Aside from the health risks, excessive weight on your body can bring, aesthetically, having too much thigh fat can make your legs look dimpled. Cellulite builds up around the thighs and buttock area for nearly everyone, but more so if you are overweight. 

While not a danger to your health, many opt to have the appearance of smooth skin. Diet and exercise can also help reduce the appearance of cellulite. There are also many cellulite creams available in the market that claim to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Creams containing CBD oil seem to show a lot of promise. Preliminary animal studies have shown CBD can help reduce food intake and boost metabolism. 

Diet

To lose fat in your inner thighs, you need to eat fewer calories than your body uses. Use a calorie calculator to determine how many calories you need to maintain your current weight, and from there, reduce your calorie consumption by 500 calories[6]. Doing this should help you lose one pound every week.

As mentioned earlier, it is more important to focus on the kind of food you eat than how much of it, as nutritious foods boost your health while you lose weight. You may make these changes to your diet to help you reach your weight loss goals:

  • Eat less than what you usually eat
  • Avoid food that is processed or has refined carbohydrates
  • Eliminate sugary drinks such as soft drinks and juices
  • Eat more protein
  • Drink more water
  • Exercise

Toning your muscles can reduce the appearance of fat. To help you have slimmer-looking thighs, do exercises that engage your thigh muscles, such as walking or running. You can do both activities on a treadmill or outside. 

Once your body gets used to your usual walk or run, you can add intensity by walking or running on an incline.  Running or walking on an incline engages your thigh muscles more. When starting, aim to do this two or three times a week.

Thigh Muscles

However, don’t just focus on your thigh muscles when you work out. Spot training to lose weight on one body part is not practical. You will achieve better results if you do exercises that use different muscle groups at a time, such as pull-ups, lunges, pushups, and squats. 

Doing high-intensity interval training workouts for 20-minutes two or three times a day can help you burn more fat effectively and consequently help you lose inner thigh fat. Interval training enables you to improve your aerobic capacity as well as build your muscles.

Aim to include both aerobic and anaerobic exercises in your exercise routine. Aerobic exercises are activities that increase your heart rate and can be done for long periods, such as walking, biking, or running. 

On the other hand, anaerobic exercises are exercises designed for short bursts of activity with high intensity. Examples of anaerobic exercises are sprinting, interval training, and strength training.

With long-term calorie restriction, your body tends to slow down your metabolism[7] to save energy, therefore burning fewer calories and reducing your muscle mass. Compensate by lifting weights to exert your muscles. Strengthening your muscles increases your metabolism and prevents muscle loss. 

Don’t think that you need to go to a gym for strength training. Exercises utilizing your body weight, such as pushups, squats, and sit-ups, are sufficient.

While it is best to do exercises that use different muscle groups to maximize weight loss, you can include exercises that target your thighs, such as those listed below, to keep them toned.

]]>Best CBD Oil Near Me In Illinois (Chicago) 2021: Where To Buy CBD?https://www.healthcanal.com/cbd-oil-near-me/illinois Mon, 05 Jul 2021 08:54:00 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?page_id=266245Where To Buy CBD Oil In Illinois

CBD is highly popular in the United States, as its benefits are becoming extensively well-known to many. Likewise, it helps ease anxiety and stress[1], relieves chronic pain[2], and controls seizures[3]. If you are one of the Illinois residents, there is good news for you.

Illinois is one of the CBD-friendly states in the US. Thus, this article will answer your question, “Where to buy CBD oil in Illinois?” But it is still important to know the state law of Illinois before you decide to buy CBD. So, we also tackle Illinois cannabis regulation.

CBD Oil In Illinois

Did you know that it was in Illinois where the CBD was discovered? In 1940, there was an American scientist who did research on the CBD compound in the cannabis plant. His name is Roger Adams.

Where To Buy CBD In Illinois?

If you want to buy CBD oil in Illinois, you have two possible choices – online or offline. When you choose an offline store, it means that you must go to a physical store near your place. Meanwhile, buying online means buying CBD oil through a company’s website. Often, it is discouraged to buy from online retailers for legitimacy, consistency, and reliability.

Local stores

This method is easy to perform. All you must do is find and choose a CBD retailer near you, and see if your chosen CBD oil is available. But, before we introduce the best and reliable CBD stores within the state, here are some of the benefits you can get when buying CBD offline.

  1. Buying in a physical store lets you see the product and check its label immediately.

From the moment you see the product, you can check what is written on the label. It means that you can check its THC content, potency and concentration, and other important things you need to know before buying CBD oil.

  1. Buying in an offline store lets you obtain answers to your questions right away.

If you need advice or questions about the product return and refund policy, you can ask the salesperson right away. He or she will be able to immediately respond to your needs. There is no need to wait for hours for an email reply, and there is no more waiting for a phone call.

  1. You can bring your CBD oil right away.

Buying in a physical store will save you from the hassle of weighing and tracking the entire shipping process. As soon as you pay for it, you can bring it right away as you go back home.

Now, here are some of the best CBD retailers in Illinois. Most of them are head shops, vape stores (which also sell tobacco products), and natural health outlets.

Online Shops

Buying CBD online also comes with various benefits. These include the following.

It saves time.

One of the benefits you get from buying CBD online is less time spent in making purchases. You do not have to travel before you can browse products, and you can shop even in the middle of the night or early in the morning. Moreover, you do not have to spend extra minutes just to go to a different store, especially if you cannot find what you are looking for from a specific website.

You have a wider selection.

Most of the CBD brands sell CBD oil and other products with varying potencies, formulas, and flavors. This means that switching to different stores is minimized.

Yet, remember that not all companies you can see online are good. Some of them only think about their business and not your well-being. So, here are some tips when choosing an online shop.

Check for a third-party lab.

A third-party lab is important for a CBD store, brand, or company because it checks the safety and quality of CBD oils and other CBD products. Check if the result of the third-party lab test is also displayed on their website itself. These results are available by batch or individually. For some, results are only available upon request, but that is okay.

Check their extraction method used.

The CO2 extraction method is often used when extracting hemp-derived CBD. It is the safest method to give you a high-quality CBD product. So, when finding an online shop to buy your CBD oil, it is always best if they use CO2 extraction.

Check their hemp source.

Your CBD oil must come from industrial hemp and not from marijuana. This is to keep you safe from the adverse side effects of high THC. Always take note that hemp-derived CBD contains less than 0.3% THC or even none. Moreover, their hemp should be organic and come from reputable hemp farms in the US.

Avoid CBD brands or companies claiming that their product can cure any disease.

Hemp-derived CBD is still under research. Hence, it is still not used as an official treatment or cure for any kind of illness.

How to choose the best CBD oil products?

Why would you want to buy CBD oil? Perhaps the primary reason is its benefits. While the research about the benefits of CBD and its possible treatment for some diseases is still ongoing, it is undeniable that it already has certain positive effects in our body. Nevertheless, here are some of the possible effects of CBD in your body:

  • Chronic pain relief
  • Lessens symptoms of depression and anxiety
  • Promotes better sleep and relaxation
  • Helps controlling seizures

Regardless of such benefits, buying CBD oil without any conscious decision-making is not advised. Thus, here are the tips on choosing the best CBD product for you.

  1. Buy CBD from a brand that submits its CBD oils and other CBD products to a third-party lab for testing. They should also make the lab test results available either upon request or by posting them on their website. Hemp source and the extraction method are also important.
  2. For first-time CBD users, choose the CBD oil that has the lowest potency or dose. You can increase the dose gradually as you go along your health journey with CBD.
  3. Choose full-spectrum if available. This lets you experience all the health benefits that CBD offers. The second choice is broad-spectrum, only if you do not want to take THC content. Meanwhile, CBD isolate is the last option. It contains only CBD of the industrial hemp plant.

Is CBD oil Legal in Illinois?

While you already have the list of the CBD retailers within the state of Illinois as well as ideas on how to choose a good shop and CBD product, we also give you some of the best online CBD brands where you can get your favorite CBD oil. Prior to that, it is good to dig into the legality of CBD in the state.

Is CBD oil legal in Illinois? The answer is yes, but with certain limitations. This guide will discuss everything one by one.

Marijuana CBD Oil and Hemp CBD Oil in Illinois

First, you must be aware of the main difference between marijuana-derived CBD and industrial hemp-derived CBD. Marijuana CBD oil contains a lower amount of CBD and higher THC content. It can be classified according to the reason of use – medical marijuana and recreational marijuana.

On the other hand, hemp-derived CBD contains lower amounts of THC and is high in CBD. Specifically, hemp CBD oil contains less than 0.3% THC. In relation to their differences, state laws have something to say regarding each matter.

Marijuana Law

Many years ago, marijuana was a “Schedule 1 drug,” according to the federal government. Indeed, federal law treats it the same as how they treat meth, heroin, and LSD. Now, the state is one of the states having the gentlest marijuana law in the USA.

In 1931, marijuana was considered legal under Illinois government law. This refers to both medical marijuana and recreational marijuana. However, things had changed in 1978, when a law[4] called the Cannabis Control Act was approved. The law states that marijuana can be used for medical purposes only. Yet, you cannot purchase marijuana from local stores.

The marijuana law continued progressing. In 2013, another law was passed. It allows people who are using medical marijuana to both grow and purchase marijuana from a state-licensed dispensary.

In 2016, a new law was passed. This time, the law was in favor of recreational marijuana. Specifically, the use of small amounts of recreational marijuana has been decriminalized. Finally, both medical and recreational marijuana is fully legal in Illinois from 2020. However, you must be 21 years old and above before you can obtain possession of recreational marijuana.

However, possession of recreational marijuana has limitations. For instance, if you are an Illinois resident, you can only have a maximum of the following: 30 grams of marijuana from licensed stores, 500 milligrams THC in marijuana-infused products, and 5 grams of concentrated products. Yet, if you are not a permanent resident, you should avoid having more than 15 grams of recreational marijuana in any source.

The Medical Marijuana Program

The state of Illinois has a special program called the medical marijuana program. It is where patients with conditions where medical marijuana is used as a treatment can avail a medical marijuana card. This sets you free from fines upon purchasing marijuana in local stores or online, even if you purchase up to 2.5 ounces per week.

Hemp CBD Oil

Like marijuana, hemp CBD was also considered illegal within Illinois. However, thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill. It removed hemp from the list of illegal drugs under the Controlled Substances Act.

Today, hemp is now also called industrial hemp. It means that farmers are free to cultivate hemp within established hemp farms. It can also be manufactured and be used in many ways such as oils, powders, food, and beverage ingredients, etc.

Final Thoughts

Do you want to purchase CBD in Illinois? Thankfully, you are free to do so, regardless of if it is prescribed CBD or not. This is because the state already allows the buying and selling of industrial hemp-derived CBD products. As such, farmers can grow hemp and distribute it for personal consumption.

Even though hemp cultivation is legally permitted, not all CBD in Illinois can be freely obtained. Indeed, the legalized marijuana under the state’s drug administration states that a cannabis product, specifically the marijuana-derived CBD can be purchased for both medicinal use and recreational use. However, the latter should not exceed what the state legislature allows.

]]>Period Weight Gain: Why & When Will I Be Back To Normal?https://www.healthcanal.com/health/lose-weight-after-period Sun, 04 Jul 2021 15:33:00 +0000https://www.healthcanal.com/?post_type=informational_posts&p=266759Period Weight Gain

Menstruation is a part of every woman’s life. The same applies to the symptoms of it as well. However, the severity of it varies from one woman to another. Some may experience only mild symptoms[1] such as bleeding, bloating, tenderness in breasts, and mood swings among others. Some women may experience much more severe changes such as weight gain. 

And, it is very irritating when you put on some weight every time you experience premenstrual syndrome. It only becomes tougher if you are already a bit overweight. However, you can lose the period weight gain, by following some simple yet effective methods such as proper diet, regular physical activity, and CBD and weight loss. But, the real question is, how long it takes for you to shed the excess weight you have gained in your period[2]. This article will explain the exact answer to your query. 

How long will I lose weight after the period?

During your menstrual cycle, it is quite normal to gain about three to five pounds. This weight gain will go away after a few days on its own. However, if you gain more than that, you would have to follow a strict diet, proper workout regime, and keep an eye on your calorie intake. By doing so, you can lose the excess water weight in about 4-6 weeks. 

The causes of water weight gain during the menstrual cycle

If you are wondering why you gain weight around your periods, there are several reasons for that. And, when you figure out the particular reason for your gains, you can simply work on that specific issue and lose all the unwanted weight. So, without any further ado, let us see what causes weight gain during periods:

Hormonal Imbalances

Pretty much everyone knows that hormonal changes lead to excess weight gain. However, not many people know that hormonal imbalances peak at the time of the menstrual cycle. Just a few days prior to your period, your body will see sudden hormonal fluctuations in estrogen and progesterone levels. This indicates to your body that it is time to menstruate. 

Progesterone and estrogen play a crucial role in your body’s ability to regulate fluids. When these hormones go out of balance, it becomes very hard for your body to control fluid levels. This, in turn, results in the accumulation of water weight[3]. It is also known as Edema. Water retention is one of the major PMS symptoms. This temporary condition causes swelling in your breasts and stomach. However, do not worry, as it only causes you to retain water, but not fat growth. 

Bloating

One of the prominent symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is bloating. Almost every woman experiences it often. However, it is not a serious symptom that you should be worried about. While you are approaching your period, your body may undergo some hormonal changes. This may increase the gas in your GI tract, which in turn causes bloating.

Sometimes, excess fluid retention may also lead to bloating. When bloating happens, you may feel tight in your abdomen or a few other parts of your body. Along with bloating, you might also experience stomach cramps. This happens due to the increased production of chemicals called prostaglandins[4]

Bloating usually starts four to five days before your period. And, it continues for the first few days after your period begins. 

Food Cravings

Hormonal changes not only make you feel bloated, but they also lead you to overeat. Many women tend to experience high progesterone levels right before their period. Progesterone[5] is the hormone that stimulates appetite. So, it is natural that you feel hungrier at the time of your period. However, that does not give you a free pass to eat a lot. 

On the other hand, we have estrogen which regulates serotonin. It is a neurotransmitter that is responsible for controlling your appetite[6] and mood swings. When estrogen levels drop below normal before premenstrual syndrome PMS, so does serotonin. This simply causes more food cravings. 

Decrease in Magnesium

Magnesium is an important mineral that regulates your hydration levels. As soon as your period begins, your magnesium levels slowly decrease. This drop in the magnesium levels triggers sugar cravings, which will only contribute to PMS weight gain. Moreover, magnesium deficiency also causes dehydration.

More often than not, dehydration provokes your food cravings. It may also make you want to eat sugary foods, which can lead you to gaining weight. Simply put, magnesium deficiency should be treated sooner. 

Constipation

It may be surprising to find constipation as one of the PMS symptoms. But, the reality is, many women feel constipated[7] when they are on their periods. It may not be one of the prominent symptoms of PMS, but it does add to our problem here, which is period weight gain. And, the reason for that is mainly menstrual hormonal changes. Water retention is another reason for that.

When progesterone levels fluctuate, things tend to slow down. And, when you cannot get rid of your bodily wastes, you will experience a slight weight gain. However, this excess weight goes away soon after your period ends.

Skipping Exercise

When your body is experiencing period cramps, you will probably want to skip working out and take rest. However, this may not work in your favor. During your period, you will have cravings for foods, which contributes to weight gain. Simultaneously, if you skip working out, it only doubles the trouble. 

Also, if you stop working out, you may not be able to combat water retention which is one of the major symptoms of a period cycle. Lack of physical activity will definitely increase the chances of weight gain. Lack of regular physical activity worsens several disorders such as sleep apnea, which also affects your menstrual cycles. If you are not able to work out, at least try to manage your sleep apnea by using a mouthpiece for people with sleep apnea.  

How can we treat it?

There is no magic formula to help you with shedding the excess weight gain during your period. You need to spend effort on preventing excess water retention, in order to not gain a lot of weight. Moreover, if you are wondering how long after your period do you lose water weight, it totally depends on how well you work on it. Anyhow, here are a few ways you can avoid water retention during your period and stay in shape:

Stay Hydrated

Okay, this may sound a bit contradictory to what we have discussed earlier. Fluid retention causes you to gain a few pounds[8] during menstruation. Now you are reading that hydration is a treatment to counter that. Well, here is the thing. The human body holds onto things that are in shortage. 

So, if you are not hydrated properly, your body will store extra water, which leads to water retention. If you drink water properly, you will stay healthy and also not gain any weight during menstruation. Sufficient intake of water also reduces bloating as well. 

Healthy Diet

You may probably know how important it is to eat healthy foods. Well, it not only preserves your health, but also helps you stay in shape. Healthy eating habits can take you a long way. So, focus on the foods that don’t offer a lot of calories, especially fats. 

Try avoiding eating processed foods, as they contain severe amounts of calories, which is not healthy for you, especially during your periods. Also, foods like caffeine cause bloating and other gastrointestinal issues[9]. So, avoid caffeine while you are on your periods. At the same time, it is better to curb your sugar and salt intake, as they contribute to fluid retention.

Exercise Regularly

No matter how healthy your diet is, you will have to exercise regularly for better health. Especially, women need to workout in order to combat weight issues. Eating good food only does half the job. The second half of the treatment lies in working out, even during periods. 

When you go to the gym and get yourself some physical activity, your body will burn the excess calories, which will help you in reversing the weight gain caused by your periods. As soon as you start exercising regularly, you will notice a difference in your weight within a week or two. 

Eat PMS-fighting Foods

It is not easy to shed some weight when you are on your periods. However, if you focus on eating the below foods that are helpful in handling PMS symptoms, things become much easier for you.

  • Kefir: If you feel bloated, try drinking kefir-fermented milk. It helps in breaking down lactose, which is responsible for gas, bloating, and abdominal issues.
  • Spinach: In one cup of spinach, you will get 156 mg of magnesium. By eating this, you can avoid magnesium deficiency, which helps in dealing with a lot of PMS symptoms.
  • Avocado: It is rich in potassium, which helps in regulating sodium levels, and stimulating urination. With this, you can manage excess retention of water seamlessly.
  • Broccoli: This has high levels of calcium which fights fatigue. Broccoli is also rich in fiber, which reduces bloating and constipation. 
  • Seeds and Nuts: Most nuts and seeds are rich in Vitamin B, which reduces many PMS symptoms such as retention of fluid, irritability, and bloating. 

Conclusion

If you want normal weight and stay healthy during your periods, you will have to put in some effort. To decrease the severity of symptoms and lose excess weight, you will have to follow a healthy diet, workout regularly, and also keep an eye on your hormones. Also, if you are still struggling, better consult your doctor and see what they have to say.
