Collagen and CBD

Posted on Aug 31, 2020 - Guardian

For a long time, people have been looking for the fountain of youth. When it comes to maintaining a
long lasting youth, people are willing to spend thousands of dollars trying any product promising a youthful look. People even risk going under the knife to remove any signs of aging. Unfortunately, most anti-aging products on the market promise a youthful look but are proving to be temporary solutions and they contain synthetic ingredients that cause harm in the long run. Health-conscious people are looking for beauty products that are natural and do not include any harmful ingredients such as parabens, synthetic colors, synthetic fragrances, synthetic preservatives, sulfates, and petroleum products. CBD is proving to be a safe natural ingredient that actually works to heal the skin, moisturize it, and provide anti-aging benefits.

Many in the beauty and wellness industry continue to boast about the incredible benefits CBD and Collagen can offer. Collagen is the body's main protein component of connective tissue, and makes up about 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. CBD is naturally extracted from the hemp plant with many health and wellness beneficial compounds that can improve many underlying factors relating to skin and inflammation.

Scientists have discovered in clinical trials that combining these two super nutrients improved skin health and anti-aging effects by increasing the skin's hydration, and the powerful added effects of CBD reparing skin regenerative tissues. In a study conducted by George W. Booz, it was found that CBD oil demonstrated potent antioxidant properties in managing oxidative stress. Oxidative stress triggers skin aging as well as the depletion collagen, making CBD oil a major advantage in increasing collagen levels.

Additionally, CBD has been found to reduce signs of skin aging, based on study conducted on the endocannabinoid system of the skin, health, and disease. Therefore, Collagen and CBD oil combined are supercharged to work against collagen depletion and skin aging. Ultimately, inflammation and oxidative stress are two of the top precursors to many human diseases. That being said, CBD could become paramount to the future development in research with its effective anti-inflammatory actions on immune cells, and with the advantage of zero psychoactive effects. Although all sounds promising, CBD is still very new to scientists and more research is being discovered between inflammation and oxidative stress, that affects organ damage and human disease.


How does CBD and Collagen circumvent Aging?

When CBD enters the body, it interacts with the receptors in the endocannabinoid system to improve balance or homeostasis. This system regulates memory, fertility, pain, circulation, moods, appetite, the immune system, sleep, hormonal function and other body functions.

It reverses ageing by relieving stress, improving blood circulation, acting as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and moisturizer by increasing collagen production.


CBD Relieves Stress and Improves Sleep

CBD relaxes body and mind and improves quality of sleep, which gives the body opportunity to removed toxins and regenerate body cells. The result is better health and skin appearance. It also improves the body's response to stress preventing the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles.


CBD Improves Blood Circulation

One of the major causes of fast again is poor circulation that causes poor health of skin cells, slow cell regeneration and skin discoloration. CBD counters that by improving blood circulation which then improves the health of cells, improves cell health and reduces skin discoloration. The result is better health generaly and better skin health which glows in youthfulness.

CBD is An Anti-Inflammatory

Inflammation is a major problem that is destroying the health of millions since it is a major factor in most chronic diseases. CBD reduces inflammation, reversing diseases, healing skin conditions and reducing puffiness around the eyes. In the process it improves health, improves skin health and reduces the appearance of fine and deep lines around the eyes. The result is better skin appearance.


CBD Destroys Free Radicals

Free radicals that are created by natural body functions, poor diet and pollution destroy body cells leading to accelerated breakdown of collagen in the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints, leading to poor function of organs, disease, and aging. Antioxidants from diet are normally not enough to destroy all these free radicals and a strong antioxidant is needed. CBD is a very powerful antioxidant, more powerful than vitamins C and A.

CBD is a Powerful Moisturizer

Dry skin causes the early appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles. Scientists have found that endocannabinoids are responsible for oil production in the sebaceous glands and that dry skin may be caused by a shortage of endocannabinoids. Fortunately, CBD is a very powerful skin moisturizer and it improves natural skin oils, making the skin supple and preventing the appearance of fine lines.


CBD Increases Collagen Production

Scientists have discovered that collagen production declines by 1% every year after the age of 20 years. That means aging begins slowly from then on! Breakdown of collagen can be accelerated by free radicals leading to weak muscles, weak connective tissue, weak bones and loose-looking skin and that create the aging look. Scientists have also found that CBD improves the production of collagen, making the skin and muscles firmer and connective tissue and bones stronger. CBD also improves the appearance of scars wrinkles and skin discoloration. By consistently applying a product with CBD one creates a youthful appearance.
