If you have spoken with me and asked why I started taking Beta Caryophyllene (BCP), you will know that I suffered from adrenal fatigue in the past – simply this means that I was a big, fat stress head. When I saw the picture above used in the header, I smiled, because that is exactly how I used to feel most of the time. I felt that BCP lowered my starting point for stress – what I mean by this is that when something happened that would normally end up with me blowing my stack, I found that I was able to cope / deal with the situation in a much more relaxed, calm way. So for me, BCP was a winner (and I think my family could agree too)!!
So today, let’s revisit how BCP can affect stress.
In today’s fast-paced world, stress is a widespread issue that affects people of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds. Anxiety, depression, sleep problems, and cardiovascular disease are just a few of the detrimental health effects that can result from prolonged stress. Many people are looking for relief by using natural therapies like herbal supplements and essential oils to help control their stress levels.
As we know, BCP is one compound that has gained attention in recent years for its potential stress-relieving properties.
But HOW does it work?
It has been shown that BCP has an impact on the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), a network of receptors and substances that controls a number of functions, including mood, hunger, and sleep. BCP interacts to CB2 receptors in the ECS, which are linked to decreasing inflammation and controlling immunological response.
Studies indicate that BCP may also have antidepressant and anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing) effects, making it a potentially useful substance for stress management.
Potential benefits of BCP for stress!
While more research is needed to fully understand the effects of BCP on stress, early studies and anecdotal evidence suggest that it may have a number of benefits, including:
–Reducing anxiety: Some studies suggest that BCP may have anxiolytic effects, helping to reduce feelings of anxiety and improve overall mood.
So in conclusion, BCP is a promising natural stress reliever that may also have positive impacts on immune system health, anxiety, sleep, and pain. Although further investigation is required to completely comprehend the processes underlying these effects, BCP is a promising alternative for people searching for a natural remedy for stress.
