Healthy Aging and Mobility

Healthy Aging and Mobility

Despite having a significant impact on overall health, mobility issues often receive less attention than other health issues. We often take a reactive rather than a proactive approach to mobility, viewing it as an inevitable aspect of ageing.

Over the last few years, we have become more aware of how different aspects of health can impact our overall wellbeing and how a proactive approach to health, through diet and exercise, can boost the body’s immune system. Mobility however is an aspect of wellbeing that is often overlooked despite a considerable proportion of people stating they have concerns about their mobility health.

FMCG customer insights found that only around 50% of consumers state that good dietary habits can help maintain good levels of mobility. There is an opportunity here for the food and drink industry to do more to promote active ingredient claims and highlight the link between diet and good mobility health.

One of the major contributing factors to reduced mobility is arthritis or joint inflammation.

Arthritis has a multitude of related conditions making it one of the leading causes of disability. Osteoarthritis, which is its most common form, is usually managed through inflammatory medicines, which often have serious side effects and can lead to tolerance and in serious cases, joint replacements may be necessary.

Although the most widely recognised, joint pain and inflammation aren’t the only contributing factors to reduced mobility, fatigue and tiredness also play a considerable role. With the increased uncertainty of recent years, an inability to relax and sleep is something that many people struggle with. With a few simple diet changes, there is an opportunity to improve our overall wellbeing and therefore improve our mobility.

Hemp Seed Oil, Hearts, and Protein are a healthy and natural superfood that could be the very thing that your body is needing to regain your mobility.


Hemp Farm® Hemp Seed Oil

Cold pressed from one of the most nutritionally balanced foods available, contains all the essential amino acids that your body needs along with gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Hemp Seed Oil contains omega-6 and omega-3 in the optimal 3:1 ratio.

GLA may have anti-inflammatory effects similar to drugs like ibuprofen and one study found a 75% reduction in arthritis-associated pain in participants after nine months of GLA supplementation. Another 2016 study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology states that hempseed oil has an anti-rheumatoid effect on cell types associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
