Improve cholesterol levels with hemp oil
Cholesterol problems are becoming more frequent in our society. About 102 million American adults suffer from high cholesterol levels, of which 35 million have levels of 240 mg/dl or more, increasing the risk of heart disease. According to research, hemp oil could be a natural alternative to effectively treat this problem.
What is the endocannabinoid system and how does hemp affect its functioning?
Many researchs suggest that hemp is an effective solution for controlling cholesterol levels and reducing the risk of heart disease.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a network of receptors and neurotransmitters present in the body’s immune and nervous systems. Its role is crucial, as it determines the proper functioning of the different parts of the body. Endocannabinoids function as messengers that send information to cells. When the body experiences a state of hyperactivity or under-activity the system detects it and an imbalance occurs. This is reflected in weight problems and obesity.
Hemp oil helps to maintain the right balance. Hemp communicates directly with the receptors and sends signals to the body so that it functions correctly.
What is cholesterol and how does it affect our body?
Cholesterol is a fatty acid that is present in all the cells of our body. It helps in the production of hormones, vitamin D and helps in the digestive process. Cholesterol is produced naturally in the human body, but it can also come from foods such as eggs, meat and cheese.
Our body only needs a certain amount of cholesterol to function properly. When those levels are exceeded, problems occur because cholesterol is a sticky plaque that adheres to the walls of the arteries. The arteries become blocked, which in turn leads to heart attacks and heart failure.
Hemp oil is an effective solution to this problem, because:
- Boosts the metabolism: As time goes by, our metabolism slows down little by little, therefore calories and fats are not processed as fast. The hemp, interacts with the receptors of the body and allows to accelerate the metabolism.
- Helps in weight loss: Hemp helps to burn fat through a process known as fat browning.
- Provides essential nutrients: Hemp is rich in omega-3 and 6, as well as polyunsaturated fats. These nutrients maintain cholesterol levels.
Many benefits are still attributed to hemp. It is a non-psychoactive alternative which, according to studies, has no side effects and has a number of health benefits.
