During the winter months particularly, we start to notice the cold affecting our skin health, with it perhaps becoming dry, cracked and eventually sore, as a result of the harsher temperatures.
Nourishing our bodies with the right nutrients, in sufficient quantities, can be key to supporting our skin health during the winter, as well as all year round.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is the second most prominent natural chemical compound, below tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), of over eighty-five cannabinoids found within the hemp/cannabis plant, representing forty percent of its extracts. As a non-psychoactive compound, CBD does not act on the same pathways as THC, and is therefore not responsible for the intoxicating ‘high’ associated with illegal marijuana use. Nevertheless, until now, CBD has lived long in the shadows of THC, but continued research has suddenly highlighted its potential health benefits.

Ginkgo biloba helps to support arterial circulation. Our arteries help to propel oxygenated blood to our extremities including our hands, feet and head (with the help of our microcirculation, which encompasses the capillaries), before blood returns to our heart via the other side of our circulatory system, the veins.
Ginkgo helps to strengthen and tone blood vessels, reducing spasm in the walls of the smaller arteries so that blood can be efficiently pumped to the extremities. Ginkgo improves circulation all over the body, but the improvement in circulation to the head, especially, has been well recognised.
