Are toxins hindering your results?

Let’s talk toxins.  Why, because they can significantly impact your health AND potentially hinder the functions of your Endocannabinoid System (ECS).  If our ECS is not in tip-top shape, then your Canna Oils BCP may have a tougher time activating the CB2 receptors.  And we here at Canna Oils are all about seeing our customers living their best lives now, so let take a look at something that just may be causing you more harm than you think.

Firstly, what are toxins? Basically, a toxin is a chemical substance which damages an organism. Simple.

What is the ECS?  Well, it’s a fascinating and intricate network that plays an important role in maintaining your overall well-being. The activation of the receptors within the ECS, provide signally throughout the body to assist the various systems to function optimally (that’s the short answer).

So can toxins affect your ECS?  Yes!!

Let’s single out one particular toxin – BPA.

Here’s what the Mayo Clinic has to say abut BPA:

“BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles. They may also be used in other consumer goods.

Epoxy resins are used to coat the inside of metal products, such as food cans, bottle tops and water supply lines. Some dental sealants and composites also may contain BPA.

Some research has shown that BPA can seep into food or beverages from containers that are made with BPA. Exposure to BPA is a concern because of the possible health effects on the brain and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children. It can also affect children’s behaviour. Additional research suggests a possible link between BPA and increased blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.”

So now, let’s tie this together. 

I found a great study that looked at how BPA deranges the ECS.

This study looked at how Bisphenol A (BPA) can mess with hormones. They focused on special cells called Sertoli cells. The researchers wanted to see if BPA modulated the Endocannabinoid System in these Sertoli cells.The conclusions showed that BPA deranges the ECS in Sertoli cells, and this affects how they make hormones like inhibin B. The findings basically found that BPA hinders the signalling ability of the ECS.

Oh no, so we definitely don’t want our signally hindered.

Here’s the Mayo Clinic’s advice:

“If you’re concerned about BPA, you can take steps to reduce your exposure:

  • Use BPA-free products. Manufacturers are creating more and more BPA-free products. Look for products labelled as BPA-free. If a product isn’t labelled, keep in mind that some, but not all, plastics marked with recycle code 3 or 7 may contain BPA.
  • Avoid heat. Don’t put plastic containers in the microwave or dishwasher, because the heat may break them down over time and allow BPA to leach into foods.
  • Focus on fresh whole foods. When you can, choose fresh whole fruits and vegetables.
  • Use alternatives. Use glass, porcelain or stainless-steel containers for hot foods and liquids instead of plastic containers.”

Add these steps to your wellness journey!  Remove BPA from your home and body – it’s not worth it.  I still had some plastic containers in my cupboard, but I’m replacing them with glass for sure!
