Early spring is the time when many people face a common problem that’s very hard to get rid off: spring fatigue. Weather changes and huge temperature differences affect not only our well-being but also our mood, our mental health. We get overwhelmed with an unusual fatigue, a of lack of energy, anxiety, and exhaustion. Some individuals become very irritable, but overall it feels like we all need more rest and quality sleep time.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE CAUSES?
- It is our body’s response to the sudden changes. As temperature gradually increases our blood pressure drops. We feel starved of oxygen, tired and without energy.
- Another problem has to do with the change in our consumption of energy. Over the winter we store it so we can regulate body temperature. The body simply needs more calories to maintain normal body temperature. In the spring months however, we don’t need that much food anymore. However, the need for more vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fluids is now increasing.
To take on spring fatigue, a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables, vitamin C and magnesium is crucial. Because we ran out of vitamin and mineral when the winter ended, it is now perfect time (in addition to the changed diet) to strengthen the body with mainly fat-soluble vitamins and minerals.
IMBALANCE BETWEEN THE HAPINESS & SLEEP HORMONE?
- In the winter months, there are usually two different hormones that predominate in the human body. Problems usually appear because of an imbalance between serotonin or happiness hormone and melatonin or sleep hormone.
Serotonin regulates our sleep/wake cycle and ensures well-being and satisfaction. At night, the human body automatically converts serotonin into melatonin and thus regulates the circadian rhythm. Due to lower amounts of daylight, hormone melatonin (sleep hormone) is prevalent in the winter. In the spring, when the days become longer and sunlight becomes stronger our glands become more active: the thyroid, epiphysis, or the pineal gland and the adrenal gland, also accelerate the formation of serotonin. The change in hormones does not happen overnight, and the body needs some time. The process is accompanied by fatigue and lack of energy and coincides with the change in the season.
- In the first spring days, we can surely notice that our immune system has weakened over the winter. We are often in a bad mood, irritable, and apathetic. The immune system is calling for reinforcements, as many of us are getting ready for a new difficult period plagued with allergies.
SO WHAT’S THE NEXT BEST THING TO DO?
CBD (cannabidiol) together with other phytocannabinoids, terpenoids, and flavonoids intensively support the functioning of our endocannabinoid system responsible for the so-called “emergency call.”
In cases of illnesses like insomnia, fatigue, and for situations, in which we are exposed to prolonged psychological and physical stress, and strain, pathogens or allergens, the body does not produce enough endocannabinoids.
Physical activity, for example just a daily walk, will accelerate the circulation of blood, which in turn ensures the flow of oxygen and nutrients in the body.
WE RECOMMEND ….
The dose of vitamins present in ADECANNA and cannabis tips will strengthen the immune system and the entire body. If you’re feeling severe symptoms of spring tiredness, add a few drops of TROPICANNA to your daily meals.
