Kim Kardashian Wants a ‘Zen’ CBD-Themed Shower for Baby No. 4: ‘I Just Want Massages’
By Maria Pasquini
Kim Kardashian West Loves CBD
““This year, because I am freaking out so much, I just want a zen-like CBD-themed baby shower,” the 38-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star — who has previously shared that she’s “obsessed with CBD everything” — told E! News at the launch of her new sunglasses line for Carolina Lemke.”
These Are The Best Supplements For Easing Chronic Inflammation
“There’s a big difference between regular inflammation and chronic inflammation. The former occurs when there’s an injury or infection present, and believe it or not, it’s actually a good thing. It’s natural, and it signals the body to begin the healing process. Take it from nutritionist Brooke Alpert, M.S., R.D., C.D.N, who says “inflammation can be caused by numerous things but it’s important that inflammation as a whole isn’t always a bad thing. Acutely, it’s a healthy immune response to some type of injury, illness or infection. Think of swelling from a sprain or even a scab. Chronic and systemic inflammation, on the other hand, is when there’s an unhealthy reaction that can be caused by poor diet, lack of sleep, stress, chemical exposure and more.”
“CBD (otherwise known as the non-psychoactive component of marijuana that’s derived from hemp) isn’t just a buzzy wellness trend with no merit. No, according to Alpert, it has real substance and efficacy, especially when it comes to chronic inflammation.”CBD is gaining traction as one of the best anti-inflammatory supplements that you can find,” Alpert says. While she recommends all of the anti-inflammatory supplements on this list, she admits she recommends CBD most often. “It’s amazing for so many conditions from inflammation, anxiety, stress reactions and more.”
“”In fact, after studying the incredible benefits of CBD and becoming certified as a cannabis practitioner, I created my own Daily Habit, to be able to provide my clients with the best CBD out there,” Alpert says. Her new CBD supplement provides 300mg of full-spectrum CBD, combined with MCT-rich coconut oil powder. It’s meant to be taken daily (as the name implies) for best results. Add it into smoothies, coffee, dressings, and more to reap the anti-inflammatory benefits.”

HERE’S WHAT WE ACTUALLY KNOW ABOUT CBD OIL AND ANXIETY
By TAMIM ALNUWEIRI, FEBRUARY 5, 2019
“Still, finding out what’s real and what’s false about CBD oil and anxiety can be difficult. To clear up some of the confusion, I spoke to Brooke Alpert, RD, a holistic cannabis practitioner, and Cayla Rosenblum, a healthcare informatics specialist at PotBotics, on the topic to see what experts know (and don’t) about the cannabidiol and mental health.
The first thing they both tell me is that should you have anxiety, you should always speak to a qualified medical and mental health professional before incorporating new supplements or products into your routine.”
CBD Beauty Products: What You Need to Know About Shopping the Budding Beauty Trend
By JACKIE FIELDS February 20, 2019 04:23 PM
“Without a doubt, the buzziest word in the beauty right now is CBD. Watch Kristen Bell’s Instagram Story before an awards show, and you might catch a glimpse of her slathering this CBD-infused cream on her feet before putting on her heels. Scroll through the high-end beauty buys at Neiman Marcus, and you might stumble upon serums containing the ingredient. But what is CBD – and why is it popping up in everything from moisturizer to bath bombs? We reached out to registered dietitian, holistic cannabis practitioner and founder of supplement Daily Habit CBD Brooke Alpert to answer all our burning questions.”
“1. What it is: Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a compound found in the cannabis (both hemp and marijuana) plant’s flowers, leaves and stem. Alpert clarifies that for beauty products, it’s sourced from hemp plants which contain less than 0.3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (popularly referred to as THC), the compound capable of altering your mental state when ingested in larger quantities. Rest assured, these topical products are non-psychoactive, so will never result in a case of the munchies. Alpert adds that when in doubt, you can reach out to the company for a detailed analysis of ingredients: “Any brand that won’t share that isn’t being transparent.””
CBD Oil Is the ‘Wellness Vitamin’ Everyone Can Benefit From, Experts Say
By Nicole Catanese July 17, 2018
“First things first — what exactly is CBD? CBD oil, which is extracted from the hemp plant, stands for cannabidiol. “It’s the non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant,” explains New York City-based nutritionist Brooke Alpert, who is currently becoming certified in holistic cannabis and launching Daily Habit, a line of CBD supplements in the fall. And, yes — it’s legal in all 50 states, with one caveat. “In order for it to be legal, it has to have 0.3 percent THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) or less,” notes Alpert.”
CBD on the menu: Cannabis extract showing up in cocktails, coffee and dessert
By Melissa Kravitz, August 20, 2018 6:51 PM
“CBD has wonderful anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-insomnia and pain management benefits, and is incredibly safe and effective,” Upper East Side nutritionist Brooke Alpert says.”
“Consuming a good quality CBD can be a great addition to any healthy diet: The only caveat is that if you’re consuming an unhealthy food with CBD in it, it won’t undo the negative health effects from it,” says Alpert. “So a CBD soda, dessert or candy, while providing CBD, is still an unhealthy treat.”
Alpert recommends her clients start with 5 mg doses and work their way up to 10-15 mg, depending on the strain and quality of the product.”
THE ULTIMATE BEDTIME ROUTINE FOR DEEPER SLEEP—AND A MORE ENERGIZED A.M.
By ARDEN FANNING ANDREWS, AUGUST 6, 2018
“Brooke Alpert, RD, author of The Diet Detox, fully believes in this ritual. “I love talking to clients about ‘sleep foreplay,’” she says. She recommends taking a magnesium supplement with a cup of Pukka’s Night Time tea. “It’s organic—and not bitter at all!”
“To drift away even faster, swap blue light for a wash of white noise.“Our hearing is used as an alarm system to protect us when we’re asleep—white noise can mask those sounds that wake us up,” Alpert says. She’s a sucker for the $1 White Noise App that actress Nina Dobrev recently touted, though the options are endless—oscillating fans, ocean waves, whale songs, cats purring. “What’s most important is to find what sound works best for you,” she says. Gentle sound of a spin bike whirring, anyone?”
Gwyneth Paltrow Drinks an Adaptogen Smoothie Every Day: Find Out Why
By Nicole Catanese September 21, 2018
“Celebs such as Olivia Wilde and Mandy Moore have embraced the adaptogen in the form of CBD oil. “It’s the non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant,” Brooke Alpert, a New York City-based nutritionist and author of The Diet Detox told Us in July 2018. “In order for it to be legal, it has to have 0.3 percent THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) or less.”
“CBD is the most ideal and functional adaptogen out there,” Alpert, who is currently becoming certified in holistic cannabis and launching Daily Habit, a line of CBD supplements in the fall, explained to Us. “Our bodies are so out of whack, whether it’s stress, anxiety, athletic pain or inflammation that when we consume CBD, because it’s an adaptogen, it actually goes to where you need it to go.”
