CBD

The number of health benefits associated with CBD therapy is expanding at a rapid pace. More and more studies are being approved to investigate new avenues for CBD medical applications. On top of this, many areas have already been explored and show remarkable results. CBD (Cannabidiol) oil is now clinically proven in many areas as an effective, all natural alternative to many common prescriptions. In many cases, CBD oil outshines traditional medications because it provides the same level of relief, but without any of the nasty side effects that can come with mainstream treatments.

Anti-Anxiety

Neuroprotective

Epilepsy and Seizures

Reduces Diabetes

Anti-Psychotic

Reduces Nausea and Vomiting

1. Anti-Inflammation

Inflammation is the primary cause of many peopleÃs chronic pain. Even before CBD was understood, it was often self-prescribed to help alleviate peopleÃs personal daily struggles with pain. Pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties are some of the most popular health benefits of CBD therapy. After ingestion, CBD is able to inhibit neuronal communication through the pain pathways, thereby reducing the experience of pain for the user. It has been shown to reduce chronic inflammation in rodents without causing dependency and the serious side effects often associated with other opioid pain medications.

2. Anti-Anxiety

In one study after another, CBD is proving itself as a safe and side-effect-free treatment for anxiety and chronic stress. In a commonly cited study, people were given CBD and then required to publicly speak. Before and after speaking, they all reported significantly lower anxiety than the control groups. On top of this, all physical signs of stress, like higher blood pressure, temperature and heart rate, were reduced as well. Cannabidiol interacts with the endocannabinoid system, which among many other things, is responsible for mood and the nervous system.

3. Neuroprotective

Cannabidiol is showing exciting progress in the search for stroke and serious brain injury treatments. It seems to hold significant promise through preliminary studies by reducing brain cell degeneration and death, which are common effects post-stroke, and post-traumatic brain injury.

4. Epilepsy and Seizures

Perhaps one of the benefits that first propelled CBD oil into the spotlight, was its ability to dramatically reduce, or even eliminate severe epileptic seizures in small children who were previously considered untreatable with the standard medications. Anecdotal cases were shown on the national news, cases of parents watching their children suffer through dozens or even hundreds of seizures a day, only to see the number dwindle to a handful after CBD oil therapy. These cases have since been backed up with significant scientific data, and are now pointing to one of the most promising areas of study for CBD. After a small, but pivotal, study in Brazil, which looked into CBD as an additive therapy for intractable seizures, Brazil has gone on to approve CBD as a recommended treatment for epilepsy.

5. Targets Tumor Growth

There are many supplements and miracle foods out there that claim to prevent cancer, but few of them have robust scientific evidence backing up their claims. Cannabidiol, on the other hand, has been found, in association with cannabis, to reduce tumor growth both in lab studies and in mice. In one government-funded study from 1974, scientists discovered that cannabis prevented metastasis and increased death of abnormal cells. It has since been found to target a few cancers in particular, including prostate, breast, and leukemia. This isnÃt to say that more cancers are not affected by cannabinoids like CBD, but the research into others is only just getting started. Newer research is showing that on top of these previously discovered anti-cancer effects, cannabis may also have pro-apoptotic abilities, which can help prevent the migration of cancer throughout the body.

6. Reduces Diabetes

In lab studies on rats, CBD was proven to drastically reduce the appearance of diabetes in non-obese diabetic rats. In fact, it reduced the appearance of diabetes by over 50%. Cannabis has been also shown to positively affect glucose, insulin, and insulin resistance levels in adults. In one study comparing sugar levels and insulin resistance between current marijuana users and past users, current users had a much lower fasting insulin rates than past users. This is a key indicator of diabetes onset.

7. Anti-Psychotic

In a strange symbiotic relationship within the cannabis plant itself, CBD provides a natural counter to the sometimes-psychotic tendencies of THC. Both these cannabinoids exist within the plant, but depending on which one is emphasized, that cannabinoid will seriously change the end result. Too much THC has been found to trigger psychotic tendencies in some people, while CBD has exactly the opposite effect and can help reduce the duration of THCÃs effect. The calming, and anti-psychotic effect of CBD has now been applied to other areas of mental illness, including as a potential alternative for schizophrenic patients. It is offering hope to many patients who suffer through periods of psychosis, and are averse to the difficult side effects of traditional antipsychotic medications.

8. Reduces Nausea and Vomiting

In conjunction with CBDÃs ability to target cancer cell growth, it is also extremely beneficial as a supplement to modern chemotherapy treatments. Many patients consider chemotherapy and radiation to be nearly as bad as cancer itself because the treatments cause lethargy, extreme nausea, vomiting, intense pain, and loss of appetite. If CBD therapy is done in conjunction, it can help alleviate many of these difficult side effects, in particular, patients have been very successful in maintaining appetite, and therefore weight and strength. They are also able to reduce nausea, and keep food down. Finally, it helps reduce the pain and body-wide inflammation associated with these harsh therapies.

MCT

MCT oil is mainly used by people looking to lose weight, or boost their endurance during a workout. Some supporters of MCT oil also claim it can improve the ability to think, as well as help with various forms of dementia.

MCTs are found in coconut oil and are processed by the body in a different way to long-chain fatty acids. Unlike other fats, they go straight from the gut to the liver. From here, they are used as a source of energy or turned into ketones.

Ketones are substances produced when the liver breaks down a lot of fat, and they can be used by the brain for energy instead of glucose or sugar.

Better brain and memory function

Energy boost and increased endurance

Weight loss and improved weight management

Lowered cholesterol

Lowered blood sugar levels

1. Better brain and memory function

The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation have reported the pros and cons of MCTs in respect of brain and memory function, as well as their potential benefits for those with Alzheimer’s disease. MCT oil can improve brain and memory function.

2. Energy boost and increased endurance

MCT oil may help to improve endurance, and provide energy for intense exercise.

Supporters of MCT oil claim that it can help boost a person’s energy and improve their endurance when they are working out.

A 2009 study found that consuming food rich in MCTs, rather than longer-chain fats, improved the time that recreational athletes could endure high-intensity exercise.

3. Weight loss and improved weight management

A popular claim that supporters of MCT oil make is that it helps with weight loss. This area has been studied the most by scientists.

A 2003 study found that MCTs increased the calories and fat that overweight men burned. It concluded that MCTs might be helpful in the prevention of obesity and to stimulate weight loss.

4. Lowered cholesterol

MCTs may also have a part to play in helping to protect heart health by lowering cholesterol.

5. Lowered blood sugar levels

MCTs may also help to improve blood sugar levels and play a potential role in diabetes management.

A 2007 study found MCT improved diabetes risk factors, including insulin resistance, in a small group of participants with type 2 diabetes.
