Obesity is one of the silent killers of our 21st century modern age. The easy availability of fast food and terrible lifestyle has done very little to keep us healthy, and the downward spiral is only beginning. Since 1975, worldwide obesity has tripled and by the year 2016, as many as 1.9 billion adults were overweight. In America alone, 1 in 3 adults is obese, which is a staggering 33% of adults who are fat and out of shape! Not to mention the 16% of adolescents who are obese. The scene is dreary at best and this is posing a burden on the health and medical care delivery system in countries.
Obesity causes an increased strain on the underlying muscles and bones, not to mention the stress put on the heart to pump blood and increased chances of catching a stroke. If you are obese and you plan to enjoy your double patty burger with cheese and a large Coke every other day, then do everyone else a favor, dig yourself a grave and sit in it. But for those who want to make a change and enjoy a better quality of life, then CBD may be able to do just that!
Ushering CBD In With Welcome Arms
The research is fast underway and CBD has been shown to vastly increase the metabolism; the rate at which the body is able to break down nutrients and fats. The reason for the CBD to work is because of its effects on the Endocannabinoid system or ECS, which otherwise transports and stores the energy for safekeeping for a rainy day. the CBD in turn dulls the CB1 receptor in the ECS and effectively dialing up the metabolism.
There is CBD news that welcomes the research that another cannabinoid in hemp extracts called THCV is a perfect partner to CBD’s metabolism effects. The THCV reduces the appetite (another feature that the ECS controls). The THCV is also known for its anti-convulsant properties, but that is for another day. Scientists and certified nutritionists say that the best thing would be to combine both CBD and regular exercise to give amazing results.
The best way to reap all of these benefits is to stick to broad-spectrum or Full spectrum activated hemp extract. These have the added punch of other cannabinoids like the THCV that will boost the effects of the CBD as well.
The future of an all-natural alternative for weight loss doesn’t seem too distant anymore.
