Pain… in your lower back, your shoulder, your neck or maybe it’s your elbow or knee. Throbbing, sharp or dull, pain doesn’t discriminate nor does it ask for permission. It finds a pathway to your body in many different forms and most of us just deal with it. We allow it to move in, put up some decorations and stay for the duration of our lives. Occasionally we can convince pain to take a vacation, feel relief, then like clockwork -it’s back again.
What if you didn’t have to deal with pain anymore?
What if you could say goodbye to that relationship, burn the bridge and move on with your life?
What would your life looks like?
How would you be able to show up for your family, friends and yourself?
You’ve heard it before, where there’s a will there’s a way and we have that way for you, but first, let’s understand pain.
There are different types of pain, so let’s talk big picture. You get hurt which causes tissue damage and that is registered in your pain receptors through your skin. Each pain receptor has nerve fiber that is connected to our spinal cord and brainstem that registers the sensation of pain. The information is then processed almost instantly. Obviously, there are different kinds of pain and a plethora of medicines out there claiming to reduce pain yet you still have some throbbing or you just give up all together and learn to live with your pain.
We don’t think that is very fun. We like to live pain free and want to give you that gift as well. So what did we do? We created a pain cream that helps alleviate your pain…fancy that!
Our Evolve Pain Cream focuses on two elements – CBD and Glutathione.
CBD, also known as cannabinoid, is derived from plants, most commonly known as cannabis. CBD does not affect the same receptors that THC does and is non-psychoactive. There is CBD with THC and CBD without. Our human bodies have something called Endocannabinoid system that receives and translates signals from cannabinoids. The Endocannabinoid system (also known as ECS) helps regulate the immune system, sleep and pain.
So what does CBD do exactly? It stops our bodies from absorbing a compound called anandamide which regulates pain. So the higher levels of anandamide IN our bloodstream and not absorbed can reduce the amount of pain we feel. It also limits inflammation in our nervous system and brain which benefits people experiencing troubles with sleep, pain (such as arthritis, chronic pain and multiple sclerosis) and immune-system responses.
Now, let’s move on to the mack daddy of our pain cream… Glutathione.
Glutathione is comprised of three uniquely bound amino acids also known as peptides (cycteine, glutamate and glycine). These amino acids are used by the body to protect against environmental and chemical threats and are found in every cell of the body. Glutathione is also bonded with Sulfur (GSH) which is the sticky part that bonds the three amino acids. Sulfur also attracts bad things in the body to stick to it like gum in hair! Those pesky toxins such as heavy metals and mercury don’t stand a chance – that goes for free radicals too. This amazing sulfur/hydrogen bond is a very special key that unlocks your wellness.
Glutathione is a powerful tool for the body’s defense system for acute and chronic health challenges. GSH is stored in the liver and as we age, we produce less and less. Starting from our early 20s, GSH begins to decrease in the body. However, like most of life, we do things that encourage us to lower our levels which makes it difficult for our bodies to hold onto this amazing compound. These pesky little things include environmental exposures, illness, a stressful lifestyle, nutritional imbalance, disease etc. For optimal health and wellbeing it beneficial to increase GSH levels starting in your 20s, which is suggested to do by medical and scientific sources.
According to Dr. David Katz of Yale University Prevention Research Center, chronic diseases are associated with low levels of Glutathione. He also states that, “if you have diabetes, gone through cancer or struggling with a serious infection, that may indicate you are depleting your Glutathione.”
GSH is stored in the liver and has a starring role as the protective and powerful antioxidant that guards against oxidation throughout the body.
So how do you get this glorious and powerful compound?
Well oral supplements aren’t the most effective because the peptides (those three that are bonded and protect against chemical and environmental damage) degrade when exposed to oxygen… and our stomach acid breaks them down before they can even be effective.
Then there is intravenous supplementation, but whoa nelly! Be careful with that one. Not only is it expensive (almost $900 per procedure), there is the possibility of shutting off the bodies natural production of Glutathione.
Then, alas, there is transdermal which means topically. Transdermal is considered the most effective way for delivering Glutathione to the body. Using a topical cream with Glutathione helps increase overall function of the body mentally, emotionally and physically. It can slow down disease progression, support cell replication, detoxify, decreases muscle and joint pain and reduces inflammation on a cellular level.
Our Evolve Pain Cream with Glutathione and CBD harvests the power of all-natural ingredients to deliver temporary regulation of moderate to intense aches and pains. It also helps protect the body against toxic build-up through the unique combinations of Whole Plant Hemp Extract and Glutathione which empowers the bodies inner defenses.
So when you’re feeling the pain, grab our CBD Extract Pain Cream with Glutathione and enjoy your day!
