Just when you thought you had heard it all – here’s another potential benefit of Canna Oils BCP. A recent US study investigated the effects of Beta Caryophyllene(BCP) on protecting bone from vitamin D deficiency.
Firstly, let’s talk about Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D deficiency occurs when your body doesn’t get enough vitamin D for healthy functioning.
More than 1 in every 3 Australian adults has mild, moderate or severe vitamin D deficiency.
Ongoing vitamin D deficiency can result in osteoporosis, bone and joint pain. Older people who don’t have enough vitamin D are more likely to fall and fracture their bones.
Vitamin D deficiency can be detected by a blood test.
Ok, so then what did this recent study find? The data indicated that BCP enhances the serum level of Klotho, leading to improved bone properties and mineralization.
That’s great news, but what is Klotho and why it that important? Well, I’m glad you asked!
Klotho is a natural protein enzyme that exists within the body and brain. This protein is created by the KL gene and is produced in the kidneys. It appears to have a large role in the regulation of phosphate.
Klotho is currently making headlines because it’s been linked to anti-aging properties and is also known to help regenerate muscle.
Animals and humans with an over expression of Klotho tend to be smarter, with higher intelligence levels and an estimated six point boost in a person’s IQ (woohoo!).
It looks like having BCP in your diet, not only protects your bones if you have a Vitamin D deficiency, it could also make you smarter (hehe)!! This is just another reason why we love Canna Oils BCP.
