Joovv

This podcast is sponsored by Joov Red Light Therapy! Red light therapy is a simple, non-invasive treatment that delivers concentrated natural light to your skin and cells. Red light therapy is quick and easy: all you have to do is sit or stand in the light for 5 to 15 minutes, ideally every day. This gives the mitochondria in your cells the natural light they need to make the energy that powers your body.Friends, I have recently become painfully aware of how light can impact overall health. I was on blue light overload and struggling with weekly migraines, sleep issues, and chronic infections, and it led me to finally try Joovv red light therapy. There was no bigger skeptic than me on this. But I have seen a dramatic shift in my health since using my Joovv device daily, specifically my migraines have completely disappeared, and I’ve also noticed more consistent, deeper sleep, and less fatigue. I’ve also rebound very quickly from infections, and, I haven’t had anxiety like I would expect during this sort of crazy time in our world. You guys know I don’t do anything unless it’s worth it, and unless I’ve done my research. There are literally thousands of clinical studies on red light therapy, and the research continues to grow as more and more people are becoming aware of its proven benefits. By stimulating energy production in the body and improving mitochondrial function, studies show red light therapy reduces inflammation, it speeds up muscle recovery and aids in the healing of injury, and it can significantly improve sleep, circadian rhythms, and overall mood, including anxiety and depression. Joovv is offering an exclusive discount for our community on their newest devices, go to  joovv.com/wellfed and use code WELLFED. Available for a limited time.

LMNT

This podcast is Supported by LMNT, I have been looking for a company for years like LMNT, that makes clean and easy electrolyte supplementation, for both myself, my husband, and my kids, and I have repeatedly come up short—until now. Most of you know we talk a lot about hydration, and specifically how electrolytes are an important aspect of hydration that so many people overlook. Electrolytes are crucial minerals that conduct electrical charges in your body. The primary ones are sodium, chloride, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. These minerals can mean the difference between feeling like a champ and feeling like garbage. Especially during exercise. Every message sent through your nervous system (including your brain) involves electrical transmissions—or nerve impulses. You need electrolytes in order for nerve impulses to fire. The problem is, you lose electrolytes through sweat, urine, and feces—and they have to be replaced through diet and supplementation. And that need increases significantly if you’re exercising regularly and sweating, or if you’re following a whole foods diet. When training, especially fasted, electrolytes are critical for performance. Many athletes feel dehydrated and drink more water – however this can dilute blood sodium levels even further. This shows up as muscle cramps, headaches, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. And Electrolytes play a key roll in hormone regulation, too. Low sodium levels actually spike adrenal hormones like cortisol. And get this, if you’re following a lower carb or whole foods diet, added salt is needed because you’re not getting it though processed foods. And if you’re regularly training and sweating, this need really increases. LMNT makes grab and go electrolyte replacement supplementation. You just take an LMNT recharge packet, mix it up with water, and sip! There’s absolutely no sugar, gluten, fillers, artificial ingredients, and it’s paleo friendly. To grab packets of LMNT recharge, go to drinkLMNT.com/wellfed, there you’ll get free shipping on all orders. There’s also a money back guarantee, so if you don’t like it, you can send it back. Grab yourself some packets to have on hand!
