How does BCP affect the Gut – Brain Connection?
Most of us have heard that the gut is called our second brain. The below excerpt explains how Canna-Oils BCP has the potential to help our “two brains” talk to each other effectively via our Endocannabinoid System (ECS), and therefore, help with the healing process.
You’ve no doubt become very familiar with the “gut-brain connection.” Many researchers now believe that connection is the ECS. The enteric nervous system – sometimes called The Brain in the Gut – contains all the components of the ECS including CB1 and CB2 receptors, synthesizing and degrading enzymes, and endocannabinoids. The ECS regulates communication between the gut and the brain in a bi-directional manner. This means that changes in the brain due to things like stress or pain can alter GI function and may be important in functional bowel health and health concerns like irritable bowel. Conversely, changes in the gut due to inflammation or infection are communicated back to the brain via the ECS. Deficiency of the ECS may be one reason that some chronic GI challenges can be hard to resolve.
My takeaway from this article is that if we can eliminate stress, pain and inflammation from our bodies or even keep it at a minimum, we could potentially avoid major gut issues.
As you know, stress, pain and inflammation are some of the main conditions that Canna-Oils BCP has already helped so many of you with, and it’s due to the effect it has on our ECS (see previous blog Endocannabinoid System Explained).
So, here is ANOTHER reason why Canna-Oils BCP not only has the potential to assist with existing conditions, but it could also help prevent potential gut issues in the future.
