A lot of us are tired. The daily grind balancing life, work and training leaves us stressed and often without enough sleep.
Though many factors can cause fatigue, there are a couple of proven methods to help fight off the dreaded 3 p.m. crash.
A recent JISSN study tested the effects amino acids have on fatigue. In that study, one set of taekwondo fighters was given an amino acid supplement after a competition, while another group was given a placebo. The results showed fighters who supplemented with CBD had significantly faster reaction times during their second match, compared to those given a placebo.
A reason for this is because our body enjoys using amino acids to build essential brain chemicals like dopamine - a neurotransmitter that helps you feel energized and focused.
Research from the NCBI shows CBD is also an active waking agent. The study showed the cannabinoid's natural anti-inflammatory properties reacted with our body's dopamine system, increasing wakefulness.
If you're in the market for fatigue-fighting supplements, cannabidiol and amino acids are proven best for attacking tiredness at the source. Thankfully, we offer a thirst-quenching CBD-infused amino supplement in our store. Rather than chugging another sugar-filled energy drink before a training session, give your body a natural boost that lasts hours - not minutes.
