The Science Behind Turmeric and CBD Oil
8th Mar 2022
How do Turmeric and CBD Oil Work Together?
Turmeric and CBD Oil are a powerful combination, pairing two potent, natural antioxidants for amazing benefits.
Turmeric has gained quite a reputation as a superfood. It has been found to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Not only that, but it is also said to be a natural defense against more severe health concerns. CBD oil has similar benefits when it comes to inflammation and stress. Together they may promote faster recovery from aches and irritations while promoting optimal wellness.
What’s Going on In Your Body? - Oxidative Stress
When you breathe, cells use the oxygen you take in and spit out free radicals. This is a process called oxidation and it's the same thing that causes apples to brown, iron to rust, and skin to wrinkle. This concept is called “oxidative stress.” Free radicals are more prevalent in response to poor diet and polluted environments such as poor air or water quality.
Free radicals are a natural response that promotes inflammation, which is helpful in moderation. If left unchecked, it can have serious consequences in the body.
According to Medical News Today, various studies and theories have connected oxidative stress due to free radicals to:
- - Central nervous system diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and other dementias
- - Cardiovascular disease due to clogged arteries
- - Autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and cancer
- - Cataracts and age-related vision decline
- - Age-related changes in appearance, such as loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles, graying hair, hair loss, and changes in hair texture
- - Diabetes
- - Genetic degenerative diseases, such as Huntington’s disease or Parkinson’s
How Free Radicals Work
We are about to drop a little science on you. Here we go: Free radicals have unpaired electrons, which make them highly unstable. A molecule with unpaired electrons has two choices. It can either get rid of an electron or steal one from somewhere else to become stable. The problem with this stabilizing action that it can cause a damaging chain reaction of unstable molecules.
How Antioxidants Work
The antioxidant molecule is a generous little guy. It donates an electron to the free radical, which serves to effectively neutralize it. If a chain reaction has already begun, antioxidants have the ability to put a stop to it or they can prevent it from ever getting started in the first place. Keep in mind that oxidation is a natural process.
Turmeric and CBD Oil Antioxidants
Both CBD and Turmeric have known antioxidant properties. The U.S. Government patented CBD as an antioxidant and neuroprotectant over 20 years ago, though cannabis use for various benefits has existed for centuries .
The use of turmeric dates back nearly 4000 years to the Vedic culture in India, where it was used as a culinary spice and had some religious significance. It is estimated to have reached China by 700 A.D., East Africa by 800 A.D., West Africa by 1200 A.D., and Jamaica in the eighteenth century.
