Hemp Extract has demonstrated bone-healing and bone-building abilities. Studies have shown that the endocannabinoid system, or ECS, plays a significant role in growing, preserving and strengthening bones.
Thus, Hemp Extract can play a part in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.
A 2015 study found that cannabinoid receptors could trigger bone formation and strengthen the tissues that connect broken bones. Researchers found that bones treated with Hemp Extract healed faster and with a strengthened fracture callus. A “fracture callus” builds a natural bridge with cartilage between the areas of the break.
The cannabinoid system appears to regulate how much old bone material is broken down, how much fat is stored inside the bone, and how many new bone cells were allowed to be born.
Hemp Extract has one more important function when it comes to healthy bones: It stimulates bone-building cells to express the genes involved in producing the primary enzyme involved in bone healing.
Thank you for taking your time to become educated on the science and technologies behind the best health supplements.
