Be it the anxiety that comes with the first day of school or the pressure from having to provide for a family of our own, we’ve all dealt with stress on various levels for as long as we’ve existed. Without the proper measurements in place, a stressful situation can have a major impact on our physical health and turn into oxidative stress.
What is oxidative stress?
Oxidative stress occurs when the number of free radicals in the body varies from the number of antioxidants in the body. As a result of this imbalance, free radicals aren’t able to properly combat pathogens that cause infections. When pathogens begin to take over the body, they create an environment for diseases such as inflammation, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, neurological diseases, and cancer.
While we’re all exposed to free radicals as we journey through life, excess exposure is what causes the problem. Cigarette smoke, radiation, pollution, toxic environments, and even some chemicals in household cleaners can lead to oxidative stress. Improving your lifestyle by eating fruits and vegetables that cater to the production of antioxidants, limiting alcohol intake, and exercising on a regular basis can help alleviate oxidative stress. Studies are consistently showing that using CBD can also alleviate oxidative stress.
How can CBD help with oxidative stress?
According to the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, CBD has an anti-inflammatory effect that actually reduces oxidative stress.
Another study “strongly supports CBD as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.”
