The cannabinoids and active compounds found in Pure Hemp Botanicals whole plant hemp extracts work in sync with the ECS (Endocannabinoid System), a feedback loop of receptors that help regulate the immune system function.
Due to the structure of the CBD molecule, it fits into the receiving end of many cannabinoid receptors found in the ECS, very much like a key. Opening up neural pathways that modulate an immune response to foreign invaders, or the inflammatory response to the stress of pain.
The ECS plays a large part in creating homeostasis; our body’s ability to seek and maintain an equilibrium at the cellular level.
Maintaining this balance is a vital component to the health of our immune system. CBD can most definitely aid in relaxing our body, which is constantly fighting to create an ideal internal environment.
There have been studies that showed CBD can promote immune system function and reduce the spread of toxins throughout the body, by modulating the secretion of a large group of proteins (cytokines) made by immune cells.
Their function is to signal the production of white blood cells, creating an immune response; this occurs when the body detects foreign invaders and attacks.
A broad spectrum of constituents in hemp seem to aid CBD in triggering the production of chemokine, a particular type of cytokine which leads immune cells directly to an infection to destroy invading microbes.
Cannabinoids can promote rapid cellular growth and regeneration of cells, known as apoptosis. When a cell has reached full potential, it is normal to break down and create a new cell in its place.
While CBD can help the cells turn-over more often, the beneficial side-effect just so happens to be a reduction of symptoms.
This process is most noticeable when CBD is taken on a regular basis, especially by people with chronic conditions and ailments.
Vitamin C is crucial to maintain health; our body’s don’t create it, so we must get it from food or supplements.
Known to support the activity of phagocytes that attack harmful bacteria, vitamin C also helps the growth and spread of lymphocytes, a major player in our immune system response team.
Zinc is an essential mineral that is found in cells throughout the body, known to be supportive of a healthy immune system, due to shielding health cells from invading bacteria and viruses.
It is also a building block of proteins and DNA; the genetic material found in all cells.
