Cannabidiol isn’t just for people with chronic pain and other chronic health conditions. Even if you’re healthy, hemp CBD oil can help improve overall health.
Hemp seeds themselves are a great source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. Several parts of the hemp plant have health benefits – we’ll go through a few of the important ones below.
May Balance Hormones
For women, maintaining an even hormonal balance – especially during the menstrual cycle and menopause – can be difficult.
Hemp oil, derived from hemp seeds, can help your body regulate prostaglandin PGE1. Prostaglandin PGE1 is responsible for regulating hormonal balance.
Improved Complexion and Healthy Hair
Do you have acne or other skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis? Is your hair brittle or dry looking? Hemp CBD oil can help hydrate your skin by increasing the amount of water your skin can hold in its tissues. When it comes to your hair, massage a little hemp oil into your scalp to help restore moisture and may calm an itchy scalp.
Reduces Blood Glucose Levels
Elevated blood glucose levels don’t always mean that you have diabetes. If you eat particularly unhealthy for a few days, your blood glucose level can be a little high and you might feel more thirsty or tired than normal. Using hemp CBD oil can help regulate and promote healthy blood glucose levels.
High cholesterol is often hereditary. Even if you eat healthy and live an active lifestyle, you can still have high cholesterol. Hemp CBD oil may help increase your body’s natural metabolic process (increase metabolism), providing energy. This helps your body burn unneeded fat faster and may aid in stopping fats from adhering to the walls of major arteries in the body.
Do you get sick easily? Does it take you longer to get over a simple cold? Your body needs healthy fatty acids to fight off germs. In compromised immune systems, the healthy fatty acids may be lacking. Slightly increasing your Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acid intake may help your body make more natural endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids help regulate your body’s response to germs and strengthen your immune system.
Brain and Nervous System Health
Your brain has conductors in it that send electrical signals throughout the body. The conductors are called myelin and without essential fatty acids, your brain and nervous system may degenerate over time. Adding hemp oil to your diet may help bridge the gap and correct a deficiency to maintain proper protection to nerve cells.
Those practicing a vegetarian or vegan diet may find it difficult to properly balance Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids in the body.
These healthy fats are needed to maintain proper digestion and a healthy body. Using hemp CBD oil can help balance a minor deficiency in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
There are dozens of reasons to include hemp oil and hemp CBD products into your daily routine. From boosting your immune system to rejuvenating unhealthy skin or hair, hemp benefits the body. You don’t have to be sick or chronically ill to benefit from hemp oil products. The natural plant proteins and essential healthy fatty acids benefit your overall health.
Fun Fact: Hemp oil and hemp CBD products do not produce psychoactive effects. Regardless of age, hemp oil and hemp CBD have dozens of overall health and wellness benefits.
