Twice as many American adults suffer from chronic pain daily as are affected by heart disease, cancer and diabetes combined. Common chronic pain complaints include headache, low back pain, cancer pain, arthritis pain and neurogenic pain. As more and more people suffer from pain, the incidence of abuse and addiction to opioids such as heroin, morphine, and prescription pain relievers becomes a serious problem that affects the health, social and economic welfare of society. The consequences of this abuse have been devastating and are on the rise. For example, the number of unintentional overdose deaths from prescription pain relievers has soared in the United States, more than quadrupling in the last 15 years.
While the causes of pain can be very complex and can certainly include causes such as trauma, disease or even aging, most often, the root cause of the pain is increased inflammation. As inflammation increases, so do sensations of pain. As inflammation decreases, pain abates.
While powerful pharmaceuticals exist to decrease inflammation, they carry with them potential devastating effects such as uncontrollable bleeding. And the reality is that these medications are most often purified, synthetic molecules originally derived in nature from the plant kingdom. Interestingly, although not patentable by Big Pharma, the raw extracts or beginning plant materials are often more effective than the resulting synthetic isolated molecules.
Boswellic Acid: Boswellic acid is a terpene that appears in the resin of the boswellia serreta plant, as well as in hemp. Recently, boswellic acid has been used in studies as an anti-inflammatory treatment agent. These clinical studies do suggest that boswellic acid promotes pain control and dampens inflammation in osteoarthritis and colitis and helps to control brain swelling associated with radiotherapy of cerebral tumors. It has also been found to have many anti-inflammatory effects in rodent trials. More to the point, clinical trials have demonstrated promising benefits from boswellic acids in osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, chronic colitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s Disease and bronchial asthma, in addition to benefits for brain tumor patients.
Science is at the very beginning in its attempt to clarify the molecular target of boswellic acid in inflammatory disorders. It has been found that boswellic acid can inhibit pro-inflammatory 5-lipoxygenase in low molecular concentrations. This suggested that boswellic acid might dampen inflammation by blocking leukotriene synthesis as well as being operational in many other pathways.
Devil’s Claw: Devil’s Claw is another name for a South African plant rich in anti-inflammatory harpagosides and glycosides. Research studies have shown an extract of the plant to decrease back pain and painful symptoms of osteoarthritis equal to common NSAIDs and popular prescription drugs. The exact mechanism of action remains elusive, however.
Piperine: Piperine or Biopurine is an extract from the black pepper spice. Piperine has been shown to increase the bioavailability of many plant based compounds sometimes by factors into the thousands of percentages. Piperine has a special affinity for increasing the bioavailability of curcumin. Although curcumin has shown efficacy against numerous pro-inflammatory human ailments, poor bioavailability due to poor absorption, rapid metabolism, and rapid systemic elimination have been shown to limit its therapeutic efficacy. The use of adjuvants that can block the metabolic pathway of curcumin is the most common strategy for increasing the bioavailability of curcumin. The effect of combining piperine with curcumin has produced much higher concentrations within 30 min to 1 h after ingestion, increasing the bioavailability of curcumin by 2,000%.
CBD: The CBD contained in this product is Hydro Hemp ™, a completely water soluble true Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Powder which retains all its cannabinoid, terpenes and phytonutrients in their natural state. Hydro Hemp™ sets a new standard for solubility and bioavailability in that it is a true micelle preparation, hydrophobic on the inside yet totally hydrophilic on the outside.
When it comes inflammation, CBD has been proven to reduce the inflammation and pain associated with diseases including Cancer, Heart Disease, Pulmonary Disease, Diabetes, Arthritis, Autoimmune Diseases, Gastrointestinal Diseases, Neurological Diseases and Alzheimer's. In fact, anti-inflammatory and pain reduction are the main reasons while people take CBD and/or Full Spectrum Hemp.
