CBD and Metabolic Syndrome (High Blood Pressure)

🐝

First off, what is metabolic syndrome?

🌲

Metabolic syndrome is a set of conditions that can negatively impact your overall health by increasing your risk for coronary heart disease (1st leading cause of death in the U.S.), stroke (2nd leading cause of death) and even diabetes (7th leading cause of death in the U.S.).

♻️

There are a few conditions that contribute to metabolic syndrome which increase your risk for a premature death. These conditions include high blood pressure, obesity, high triglycerides, diabetes, and high cholesterol, all which CBD was shown to positively impact (Jadoon, Tan, O'Sullivan, 2017).

🐝

The best approach to avoid premature death from these conditions is to avoid the things that cause it in the first place (root cause). This will most likely include making lifestyle changes. Prevention is everything.

🌲

CBD can offer cardiovascular (heart) protecting properties and the results are out of this world!

♻️

As we may know, stress can cause blood pressure to increase. Although this is a natural response of the human body to stress, chronic stress can cause ill-effects to our overall health by causing high blood pressure and increasing inflammation within the cardiovascular system (increasing pro-inflammatory markers) (Jadoon, Tan, O'Sullivan, 2017).

🐝

CBD can offer many beneficial protecting properties for our cardiovascular system, including a reduction in blood pressure, reducing oxidation (antioxidants), and reducing stress (which also has a positive impact on our heart health) (Jadoon, Tan, O'Sullivan, 2017).

🌲

Chronic stress can cause what? You guessed it, high blood pressure.

♻️

CBD was shown to help improve blood pressure, reduce inflammation within our vascular system (protecting endothelial cells), and reducing stroke volume (Jadoon, Tan, O'Sullivan, 2017).

🐝

Get this, CBD administration before a heart attack has taken place was shown to improve heart tissue re-oxygenation, reduce the size of the infarct (dead tissue from not receiving blood supply), and reduce ventricular arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat) (Jadoon, Tan, O'Sullivan, 2017).

🌲

You may hear me mention the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and neuroprotective properties all the time. The truth is these 3 properties can be applied to almost every diseased state because of the role oxidative stress and inflammation has in all disease processes.

♻️

More studies need to be done to really understand the full capabilities of these plant compounds. The best part about these studies is we will never see any negative effects on our health. No deaths, no overdoses, none of that. The safety profile is great, and it shows a promising alternative approach to improving the health of mankind.

🐝

This study was done 5 years ago (2017). I want to know who suffers from cardiovascular disease or high blood pressure was told about how something health promoting can improve their state of wellness by utilizing CBD? None. Why? They profit off the ill. 

🌲

One of nature's finest herbs for health and wellness.
