Living a healthy lifestyle means staying active and getting regular exercise. Moving the body is critical for circulation, metabolism, and even the support of your immune system.
Building Muscles Through Activity
The more we move, the more likely we are to experience minor pains in the muscles of the body. Muscle cells actually undergo very slight amounts damage when they work, which allows them to grow larger and stronger over time. Exercising does not add muscle cells, but it makes the existing muscle cells better at doing their job. It also increases blood flow to the area, providing the nutrients the muscles need to rebuild and strengthen.
This growth and strengthening process can create muscle stiffness, soreness, and even slight amounts of swelling. To help your muscles recover, and to relieve that pain and soreness, Young Living offers several options in products to assist and support your muscles. The three that are most recommended are the Cool Azul Pain Cream, the CBD Rub, and PanAway.
Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream
For pain relief and a pleasant, cooling sensation, Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream is an ideal solution. The use of Wintergreen and Peppermint, as well as other essential oils, provides a sensation that is both soothing as well as offers fast pain relief to muscles and joints.
Nature’s Ultra CBD Rub from Young Living offers both a heating and cooling sensation that helps to quickly relieve the pain of any type of activity or workout. It contains a blend of essential oils, including peppermint, lemon, clove, and tea tree. In addition to 100% pure essential oils, this rub also offers the benefits of CBD.
The CBD (cannabidiol) reduces the inflammation around overworked muscles, providing faster healing, longer pain reduction, and a decrease in any muscle tension or stiffness. CBD provides optimal recovery through a deep, sound sleep, which is linked to faster muscle recovery.
The cooling sensation of wintergreen and peppermint is also found in PanAway, which is one of the most popular Young Living essential oil blends. In addition, the blend contains clove and helichrysum, with clove used for pain relief and helichrysum ideal for inducing feelings of relaxation on both a mental and physical level.
