Did you know that Beta Caryophyllene may assist in reducing alcohol addiction??
Well, you may or may not like this next newsletter – studies have shown that Beta Caryophyllene (BCP) may assist in reducing alcohol addiction.
We all know that alcohol is not the best for our bodies – below are some long-term effects of alcohol consumption above guideline recommendations:
- mental health issues such as increased risk of suicide
- substance abuse — you may become dependent or addicted to alcohol, especially if you have depression or anxiety, or a family history of alcohol dependence
- increased risk of diabetes and weight gain
- impotence and other problems with sexual performance
- cancers such as stomach cancer, bowel cancer, breast cancer, mouth cancer, throat cancer, oesophageal cancer and liver cancer
- fertility issues such as reduced sperm count and reduced testosterone levels in men
- brain damage and brain-related conditions such as stroke and dementia
- heart issues such as high blood pressure, heart damage and heart attacks
- cirrhosis of the liver and liver failure
Several recent studies have suggested that brain CB2 cannabinoid receptors play a major role in alcohol reward. Basically the study showed that mice that had been induced with BCP did not consume as much alcohol as those that did not have BCP in their system. The mice with BCP still consumed the same amount of fluid as the other mice – just not alcohol.
The conclusion of the study showed – overall, the CB2 receptor system appears to be involved in alcohol dependence and sensitivity and may represent a potential pharmacological target for the treatment of alcohol addiction.
This is another great reason why BCP should be a regular part of your wellbeing routine.
