Historically, Hemp has offered many things from providing fuel and textiles to feeding animals and now we’re starting to discover the many health benefits. HempCeutixis a family of products from Natures Plus that are standardised to therapeutic levels that contain the complete profile of naturally occurring hemp Phytocannabinoids, which are the natural substances present in the cannabis sativa plant.
As well at this, terpenes and other important compounds are included to help promote homeostasis within the body and initiate necessary reactions. Whether that be to alleviate inflammation in the body like swelling, digestion issues, or support the nervous system with regard to sleep and stress etc…
The Endocannabinoid System or ECS serves as the telecommunications network for the entire body and enables the body to fine-tune or balance tissue activity in response to changes in other tissues. The system includes molecules that act as messengers called Cannabinoids.
The Cannabinoids are released from their cells, telling them to increase or decrease their activity, but they must attach to receptors to be effective.
A healthy Endocannabinoid System properly regulates stress, memory, mood, inflammation, energy, sleep, pain response and more! There are two categories of Cannabinoids, Endocannabinoids that are found naturally in the body and Phytocannabinoids that are made by plants and by far the greatest concentration of Phytocannabinoids can be found in Hemp.
“Endocannabinoids have effects on many systems and processes in our body, including digestion and appetite, mood, stress response, sensations of pleasure and pain, our immune system and reproduction. So, phytocannabinoids from cannabis sativa are thought to have beneficial effects in these areas.
Phytocannabinoids have been researched for their benefits in relieving pain and inflammation; protecting against the effects of stress, helping depression and anxiety, supporting heart health, protecting the brain, helping those with epilepsy, and even for potential anti-cancer effects – amongst others!” explains nutritionist Cassandra Barns.
