Antioxidants seems to be “the rage” these days. Rightly so. Antioxidants are vitally important to our health and well being. Free radicals in our bodies create a process, a chemical reaction called oxidation. These reactions are known to cause many negative effects on our health, the worst of which might be malignant cell growth. While our body does naturally produce antioxidants, we don’t generally produce enough to fight all the unhealthy factors our body experiences on a daily basis. When we have the imbalance of pollutants vs. antioxidants we experience sickness and disease.
So where does CBD fit into this equation? CBD is loaded with vitamins and is a very powerful antioxidant which serves to increase your overall health and body wellness. When we ingest CBD we are triggering the cannabinoid receptors in our body. The powerful CBD, as an antioxidant, has the ability to prevent hydroperoxide-induced oxidative damage that occurs when too many free radicals enter our system and affect our health. The US government holds a patent (US6630507B1) that suggests CBD might actually be a more powerful and effective antioxidant that many vitamins.
Along with all the other properties of CBD, it also contains a HUGE number of vitamins and minerals essential to our body. A few of them are:
Vitamins A, B complex, C and E, Iron, Beta Carotene, Zinc, Potassium, Calcium Selenium, Phosphorus, Manganese, Magnesium, Flavonoids, Terpenes and Terpenoids.
Nature takes care of us. We just have to let it.
