Did you know that hypertension, or high blood pressure, affects an estimated 25 percent of adults? The prevalence of this potentially life-threatening syndrome only increases in aging and unhealthy populations.
There are several preventative measures one can take to keep his or her blood pressure at normal levels. However, for patients who are already in the more progressive stages of hypertension, more immediate and drastic action is typically required to lower that individual’s risk of having a heart attack or other cardiac emergency.
Endocannabinoid regulation through supplementation with CBD, while still being researched by the medical community, has already shown some promise in helping to regulate many health disorders, including high blood pressure. Taking a supplement with activated hemp cannabidiol isolate could possibly help patients with hypertension get their levels back to normal – and even prevent future high blood pressure in healthy individuals as well.
Of course, a healthy diet and exercise regimen is absolutely vital to the process of lowering blood pressure and preventing cardiac issues. Cannabinoids such as CBD may help to reduce the pressure even more by tackling two root causes of hypertension:
One major preventable cause of hypertension is inflammation. A patient’s lifestyle, over time, can cause the walls of the arteries to swell, creating a tight passageway for blood to pass through. Eating inflammatory foods, smoking and using alcohol or drugs can intensify this inflammation over time and create risks for heart problems.
“Vasodilation” is a known therapeutic side effect of CBD, and refers to the widening and relaxing of the veins and arteries. Using cannabidiol alongside your healthy lifestyle is almost like creating a low-pressure system within your own body, helping to keep hypertension at bay.
Another root cause of hypertension is simply that the heart and arteries are working too hard, contracting too quickly and pumping too much blood into the vascular system at one time.
The exact role of CBD in this process remains mostly unknown to scientists. However, it has previously been found that anandamide plays an important role in heart and vascular function. Cannabidiol helps to regulate the reuptake of anandamide and other neurotransmitters integral to the healthy function of the cardiovascular system. For this reason it makes sense that CBD supplements play some kind of role in regulating the contractions of the heart muscle.
About one in every three adults are at risk for high blood pressure in the US, or already have it. Stop putting unnecessary strain on your system and start making healthy lifestyle changes now that can reverse and prevent damage to your heart.
