CBD Oil, Weight Loss & Metabolism
In the scientific journal Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, Korean researchers explored the potential for CBD oil to aid in the treatment and prevention of obesity.
In the study, researchers found that CBD oil could act as a weight loss supplement in three areas:
- The breakdown and oxidation of fat. CBD oil encourages fat to break down by stimulating genes and proteins in the body.
- Increasing the body’s ability to burn calories. CBD oil increases your body’s ability to burn calories by increasing the amount of mitochondria in you body. It also increases the activity of the mitochondria,
- Decreasing fat cell generation. CBD oil not only increased the body’s ability to burn fat, it also decreased the expression of the genes responsible for fat cell generation.
What is Brown Fat?
The CBD oil study explored the breakdown of brown fat, which is different from white fat. White fat cells store calories and are what we typically think of when we talk about fat. Brown fat is packed with mitochondria and it burns energy and produces heat. Studies show that adults with lower body mass indexes (BMIs) have more brown fat. Therefore, researchers believe brown fat plays an important part in human metabolism and has the power to help fight obesity.
CBD/Hemp Oil & Brown Fat
Basically, the study found that CBD oil has the potential to turn white fat into brown fat, which burns (metabolizes) it away. In animal studies, boosting brown fat improves glucose tolerance and reduces the risk of diabetes as well as other blood lipid abnormalities.
What Type of CBD Oil (Hemp Oil) Do You Need?
When you buy CBD oil online, it’s important to choose a reputable CBD oil company. A recent study showed that 70% of CBD oil products sold online are mislabeled, and the FDA has found that many hemp oil products contain little to no cannabidiol, or CBD (5). Also, many companies deceptively label their CBD oil products with the mg of oil added, not the actual CBD content, so it’s easy for consumers to get confused.
