Feeling Stiff?


Do you ever wake up in the morning, reach for your obnoxious alarm clock and realize your hands are abnormally stiff? Or maybe a recent gym session was extra intense and has some joints or muscles feeling like they could use a little extra love and care. Whatever the cause, stiff joints and muscle discomforts are all too common in today’s world. Many of us don’t even realize how much we neglect our body’s internal needs.

There are a plethora of options when it comes to herbs and supplements that may help alleviate and prevent those discomforts. In today’s blog we’ll run through just a few of our favorite ingredients and a bit about what they’ve been known to do. Check them out below:

Calcium Fructoborate: Calcium Fructoborate serves as an important source of bioavailable dietary borate storage, when taken orally it has been known for its positive effects on bone and cardiovascular health. 

Boswellia: Boswellia serrata is a plant that produces Indian frankincense. Boswellia is typically known to be taken by mouth for things such as brain injury, joint discomfort, and swelling of the joints. 

White Willow: White Willow Bark contains salicin, which is a chemical similar to aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid). Salicin is thought to be responsible for the potential pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects of the herb. 

Turmeric: Because of its antioxidant and potential anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric may also contribute to healthy digestion along with all around potential anti-inflammatory benefits. 

MSM: is an organosulfur compound. Research shows that it may be helpful in reducing joint pain, lowering inflammation, improving skin health, decreasing allergy symptoms and speeding recovery after exercise. 

These are just a few of the well known herbs in the natural realm that may help you with occasional joint or muscle discomforts. Kao created a Mobility capsule that blends this list of herbs with an isolated CBD extract to give you a well rounded product that tackles that frustrating morning stiffness while providing you with 1000mg of CBD. Try taking Mobility after each workout for a more comfortable recovery or daily for all around joint support! Great as a stand alone product or paired with your current cannabinoid regimen. 

Keep in mind that staying ahead of the problem is always the most effective route to wellness, preventative care and preparation will help to keep the more severe symptoms at bay. Our body is our vessel in this life and you only get one, so remember to show it some extra love and care!
