When it comes to SHIFT™ in general (capsules and tablets), we recommend taking the product in the form in which it is packaged.

However, if for various reasons there is a need to split a dose or if there are swallowing problems, it is possible to empty out the contents of the capsules or crush the tablets in order to take the product in this way. However, it must be taken directly after this has been done, and with a glass of water on the side.

Should you take vitamin D supplements in winter?

Yes, it may be a good idea to take vitamin D supplements in winter, especially if you live in areas with little sunlight. Vitamin D is important for bone health and the immune system, among other things, and sunlight is the main source of this vitamin. Unless you are exposed to sunlight all year round, supplementation may be necessary, especially in winter when sunlight is weaker.

In addition to vitamin D, you may want to take omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin C to strengthen the immune system against colds and flu, which are more common in winter. It may also be useful to take some extra zinc as it plays a crucial role in the immune system and helps to fight infections.

What types of vitamins are most important to consume and why?

All vitamins and minerals are important for the body's functions, but some of the most important include vitamin D for bone health and the immune system, vitamin C for the immune system and wound healing, vitamin A for vision, and vitamin B12 for the nervous system and energy production.

Do I need to take supplements when I exercise?

It depends on individual factors such as diet, exercise routine and any underlying health issues.

During exercise, it is particularly important to ensure adequate intake of vitamins and minerals that support the body's functions and performance. These include vitamin D, which contributes to muscle function and strength, and magnesium, which is important for muscle contraction and energy metabolism. Potassium is necessary for electrolyte balance and normal muscle and nerve function, while iron is essential for oxygen transport during exercise. In addition, B vitamins play a role in energy metabolism and help to reduce tiredness and fatigue.

Questions and answers about SHIFT™ CBD Magnesium oil.

What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, and is a substance belonging to the group of cannabinoids that in its natural form comes from industrially grown hemp (cannabis sativa). SHIFT™ CBD Magnesium oil is the raw material synthetic, according to the Cosmetics Regulation. The synthetic CBD used has an identical chemical composition to trans-cannabidiol found naturally in the hemp plant.

CBD has nothing to do with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the substance found naturally in hemp that can cause intoxication.

How often can I use SHIFT™ CBD Magnesium Oil?

The product is used as needed, and there is no fixed minimum or maximum use per day. On first use, you may experience a tingling sensation in the skin, which disappears after continuous use. The product contains a seawater rich in magnesium chloride, so you will experience a white salty layer on the skin after application. This can be wiped or rinsed off. If you experience skin irritation, discontinue use of the product. The product should not be used on sore skin or on the face.

I am pregnant, can I use SHIFT™ CBD Magnesium oil?
No, pregnant and breastfeeding women are not recommended to use the product.
Can you get high on CBD?

No, CBD should not be confused with TCH even though they come from the same plant species. Industrially grown Cannabis sativa is grown for its CBD content and contains very little THC, unlike the marijuana plant. CBD has absolutely no intoxicating effect whether it comes from a natural or synthetic source.
