Hemp Oil Complex
We have been getting a lot of questions pertaining to the Standard Process (SP) Hemp and why do we recommend it over CDB oils. Main reason we use SP Hemp Oil Complex is quality. SP as a company has always been very conscience about producing high quality supplements so that doctors in the field practicing see therapeutic results with their patients.
Why do we recommend hemp oil verses CBD oil? Simple answer is research shows that full spectrum hemp oil works better than straight CDB oil. Hemp oil contains 116 of the know phytocannabinoids where CDB oil is just a single phytocannabinoid. They both work, one just works better.
Below is information that I have complied from the Standard Process website on common questions regarding Hemp Oil Complex.
What Is Hemp Oil Complex™?
Available in a convenient softgel, Hemp Oil Complex™ is uniquely formulated with hemp oil, omega-3 oil, TrueBroc® and broccoli to provide individuals and their canine companions with a 3-in-1 whole body benefit, supporting the endocannabinoid system (ECS), healthy inflammation response, and endogenous antioxidant pathways.
Why Use Hemp Oil Complex™?
- Supports the ECS*
- Supports the body’s natural inflammatory response function*
- Offers ingredients that provide antioxidant activity*
- Includes non-genetically engineered hemp
- Consists of a combination of natural omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA, DPA and EPA
- Made from gluten-free ingredients
- Contains certified, sustainable Calamari oil from the nonprofit Friend of the Sea®
Why Support The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
Hemp Oil Complex™ contains natural, plant-based compounds called Phytocannabinoids that support the ECS, the body’s primary regulatory system. Evidence shows that the ECS regulates various cellular, intestinal, immune response and stress response functions to support physiological homeostasis in the body. This ranges from simple functions, like eating, sleeping and relaxing, to complex functions, such as neuroplasticity, metabolism and inflammatory processes. A well-balanced ECS encourages favorable conditions in body systems, impacting the body’s ability to manage metabolic stress and support overall health and well-being.
What Can I Do To Support My ECS?
The proper functioning of the ECS is known as endocannabinoid tone. A variety of factors can influence the ECS and support its tone, including healthy lifestyle habits, such as diet, exercise, stress modification, acupuncture, massage and using dietary supplements, like Hemp Oil Complex™.
How Do The ECS And Diet Affect Healthy Inflammatory Response Processes?
The ECS and a healthy diet may support key resolution pathways to inflammation, energy balance and metabolism through nutrient-rich omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and fibers from a whole food matrix in the form of phytonutrients.
Why Consume Omega-3 Fatty Acids?
A large percentage of the U.S. adult population falls below the recommendations for omega-3 fatty acid consumption, including ALA, EPA and DHA, which are required for normal systemic body functions and must be obtained from dietary sources. Omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids are precursors of specialized lipid mediators (eicosanoids), which play an important role in the regulation of inflammation and the immune response. A balanced combination of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids favors healthy inflammation processes and supports the resolution phase of the inflammation processes by regulating various systemic functions in the body, including cardiovascular, pulmonary, immune and endocrine systems.
How Does TrueBroc® Help Support Healthy Inflammatory Response Benefits?
Cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli, are rich in sulfur-containing compounds called glucosinolates. Glucoraphanin, the type of glucosinolate in broccoli, helps to form sulforaphane, a biologically active isothiocyanate. The biological actions of glucosinolate-derived isothiocyanates with active myrosinase enhance the bioavailability of isothiocyanates thereby supporting cellular antioxidant capacity. Studies have shown that many isothiocyanates found in plants such as broccoli, particularly sulforaphane, increased expression of antioxidant enzymes via the activation of nuclear factor-2 (Nrf-2) dependent pathway.
Is Hemp Legal In The United States?
Foreign hemp is legal in the United States, serving as an important industrial import for decades. Standard Process legally sources high-quality, non-genetically engineered hemp oil from Eastern Europe. Additionally, the hemp oil is efficaciously derived from mature, nutrient-rich plant seeds and stalks with a THC content of less than .3%, making it a legal product.
