Hemp Oil Extract: Part of a Healthy Lifestyle
In 1992 researchers identified a complex system in the body responsible for helping to maintain homeostasis—the natural balance required for optimal health and functioning. Termed the “endocannabinoid system,” it is a transiently active endocrine mechanism that works as needed to help the body maintain a healthy equilibrium—much like the way a thermostat signals a central air-conditioning system to come on when the indoor environment reaches a preselected temperature.
While we all strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle, we often fall short. Work stress, inadequate sleep, and poor diet can all have negative effects on the body’s natural homeostatic mechanisms, and sometimes a degree of supplemental support is required to help the body restore its natural balance.
That’s where hemp oil extract comes in
The oil contained in hemp, a primary ingredient in HempFusion products, is dense in omega-rich fatty acids like Omegas 3, 6 & 9, terpenes, and key hemp phytocompounds. Hemp oil also contains an array of essential minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, and phosphorus.
- Hemp seed oil includes Alpha lenoleic linolenic acid, are valuable omega 3 & 6 fatty acids.
- Research suggests that Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids may help support healthy cholesterol levels.
- Hemp oil extract from other parts of the plan including the stalk, contain key hemp phytocompounds that have been scientifically identified as unique nutrients that aim at nourishing the endocannabinoid system. These key hemp nutrients support balance within the endocannabinoid system when the body may not be able to achieve this balance effectively on its own.
- Rich in antioxidants, hemp oil can help reduce effects of free radicals.
In addition to hemp oil extract, HempFusion products are all full-spectrum products that include clove and black pepper, which contain a full array of terpenes. They also include sunflower oil, which contains phospholipids and additional Omegas 3, 6 & 9.
Terpenes are phytocompounds that are good to know. They are valuable to your health because they’re all-natural, plant-based extracts that bind to receptors in the brain to affect the chemical output of neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin. Researchers have discovered a number of additional health benefits from terpenes such as reducing discomfort, supporting restful sleep, and other benefits.
Combined with the other components of full-spectrum hemp products, terpenes are believed to enhance the natural balancing properties within the endocannabinoid system in concert and are often referred to as the “Entourage Effect”.
While hemp is a natural powerhouse to support your endocannabinoid system, it is also rich in other nutrients like potassium, magnesium, iron, and omega fatty acids that we know are good for our overall health. Making hemp oil extract like those found in HempFusion 5.0 can be part of your total wellness lifestyle.
