CBD and Antioxidants
Pollution is not just an environmental concern. Our cells deal with their own version of pollution constantly. Fortunately, we have ways of fighting pollution in our bodies: antioxidants. An antioxidant is a natural substance that inhibits oxidation, a chemical reaction that produces the free radicals that eventually damage cells and lead to illnesses and chronic diseases. The body naturally produces antioxidants, but the amounts are often insufficient for neutralizing all of the harmful effects of oxidative stress.
New research is emerging that shows that cannabinoids are good, if not the richest source of anti-oxidants known to man (a study published in 1998 was one of the first to document CBD’s antioxidant properties, and CBD was found to be a more powerful antioxidant than both vitamins C and E).
The CBD structure also contains a free oxygen atom2. This is the atom that is donated to the free radicals, thus neutralizing them. It is this free oxygen atom that gives CBD its antioxidant property, and which makes it great at getting rid of free radicals.
There are many ways that antioxidants can help clean up or even prevent cell pollution.
More importantly, CBD helps the body regulate its own antioxidant systems, which help to boost overall homeostasis and slow down aging.
