Our wonderful bodies are complex and unique, each with its own challenges and needs. Some days we feel energized and ready to take on the world, while other days can feel like a trek up Mount Everest. Thankfully a few key superstar supplements can help support us, whether we’re endeavoring to take on the world or just getting through the day.

Fish Oil/ Omega 3s - In a perfect world we would eat 2-3 servings of fatty fish each week to reap the benefits of fatty acids found naturally in fish oil. But schedules get busy. And since our bodies don’t produce these polyunsaturated fats on their own, food or supplements is the only way to get them into our system. Omega 3s are associated with joint, brain, cardiovascular, and mental health, so this essential fat could be a valuable part of your health regimen.

Vitamin D - Most commonly associated with good bone health, our bodies can produce vitamin D when we’re exposed to sunlight. For those who don’t get enough sunlight (perhaps concerned about premature aging or skin diseases), a supplement may be a healthy way to boost levels of this beneficial pro-hormone.

Pro Tip - While this vitamin has a reputation for helping achieve restful sleep, if you take it right before bed it could be keeping you up instead. You may find this better suits your needs as a part of your morning supplement routine.

Charlotte’s Web hemp extract - Either in oils or capsules, our hemp extract is a simple way to upgrade your day. Hemp’s phytocannabinoids, like CBD (cannabidiol), work with our Endocannabinoid system - a network of receptors in the bodies of all mammals that helps us maintain a healthy balance and overall wellbeing. And more than just CDB, our hemp extract supplements contain many of hemp’s other naturally occurring phytocompounds such as terpenes, flavonoids, and more phytocannabinoids that work together to heighten the positive effects of CBD. While there are many reasons people love and take Charlotte’s Web, a few of them are improved focus, help with everyday stresses, and recovery from exercise-induced inflammation.*
For those just getting started with Charlotte’s Web, many feel an overall sense of relaxation, so this too might be an ideal supplement for your nighttime routine.

Lives are busy and proper nutrition can feel hard. But it doesn’t always have to. However you’re supporting your health, we’re here to support you.
