How do these ingredients act to help support digestion?
Seventy-four percent of Americans currently suffer from significant gastrointestinal discomfort or disease. These problems trigger over 51 million visits to primary care physicians or GI specialists nationwide, accounting for upwards of a half a trillion dollars in health care costs.Many of the medications prescribed by doctors or taken over the counter to alleviate some of the symptoms of GI distress have recently been found to lead to even more serious symptoms and diseases than that which they are meant to combat. Take, for example, the leading over the counter heartburn medication Nexium which generates over 15 million prescriptions monthly. This seemingly harmless “Purple Pill” which was meant to offer relief from heartburn, is now being implicated in cancer, intestinal infections, bone wasting and fractures, kidney disease, heart attacks and most recently dementia. Perhaps worse, Nexium is now being called “Purple Crack,” as it has been shown to be highly addictive and to cause the hyper-acidosis condition it is meant to treat.Pure Hempnotics offers Digest, a completely natural product containing Full Spectrum Hemp Oil (CBD), Fennel, Ginger which all have been scientifically proven to diminish gastrointestinal distress and aid in the treatment of a wide array of GI related diseases and disorders included but limited to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s Disease, Gas, Diarrhea, Diverticulosis and Diverticulitis, Acid Reflux including GERD and GER, Ulcers and Celiac Disease.
Fennel: Fennel is a very safe, popular herb that has a long history of use in medicine for almost every conceivable disorder. Studies indicate fennel as having defined pharmacological properties, centering on it being antiaging, antimicrobial, antioxidant, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antimutagenic, antipyretic, antispasmodic, antithrombotic and antitumor. Additionally, it has been shown to be pro-heart, analgesic, chemomodulatory, cytoprotective, hepatoprotective, hypoglycemic, hypolipidemic, and to have stress reducing and memory enhancing properties. More specifically, there have been hundreds of clinical studies proving fennel controls numerous infectious disorders of bacterial, fungal, viral and protozoal origin. Phytochemical studies have shown the presence of numerous valuable compounds, such as volatile compounds, flavonoids, phenolic compounds, fatty acids, and amino acids. These phenolic compounds appear to support the prevention of diseases possibly induced by oxidative stress such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and inflammation.Fennel also regulates the motility of smooth muscles of the intestine, while, at the same time, reducing intestinal gas. Alone, or combined with other plant medicinals, Fennel is indicated in the treatment of many types of spastic gastrointestinal disturbances, including chronic colitis which is resistant to other treatments, and in treatment of stomach lesions, bloating and nausea.
Ginger: Ginger is a spice that has been used universally throughout the world for centuries. Interestingly, there are thousands of medical studies on ginger demonstrating its ability to help pain relief for arthritis and joint problems, muscle soreness, chest pain, low back pain, stomach pain, and menstrual pain. It can be used for treating upper respiratory tract infections, cough, and bronchitis. The fresh juice of ginger has been shown to treat skin burns. Ginger is also used to warm the body for boosting the circulation and lowering high blood pressure. Because of its warming effect, ginger acts as antiviral for treatment of cold and flu. Ginger has also been widely studied for its role in anti-cancer activities in the body, especially for cancers of the GT tract. Ginger’s most profound effect centers on improving all aspects of the GI tract including food digestion. Ginger is also very helpful with problems like morning sickness, colic, upset stomach, gas, bloating, heartburn, flatulence, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and discomfort after eating. Most importantly, Ginger is thought to act directly on the gastrointestinal system to reduce nausea. Therefore, it is used to prevent nausea resulting from chemotherapy, motion sickness, and surgery. Ginger is known as a popular remedy for nausea during pregnancy.
Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil: The CBD contained in this product is Hydro Hemp, a completely water soluble true Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil Powder which retains all its cannabinoid, terpenes and phytonutrients in their natural state. Hydro Hemp™ sets a new standard for solubility and bioavailability as it is a true micelle preparation, hydrophobic on the inside yet totally hydrophilic on the outside. Research into CBD as a treatment for GI disorders demonstrates that it is very useful as a safe, treatment option as it targets CB1 receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS). These receptors regulate food intake, nausea and vomiting, stomach secretion (the cells of the stomach release acid to digest food), stomach protection (if the stomach isn’t protected, it can get damaged by the acidic secretions), GI motility/movement (too much movement –> diarrhea, too little movement –> constipation), ion transport (absorption and secretion –> e.g. maintaining proper fluid/electrolyte [e.g. salt] balance), internal organ sensation, the inflammation process that results from certain GI illnesses, and the number of cells of the GI tract (too many cells may indicate cancer or a disease process, too few may lead to tissue injury). CBD also works on another type of cannabinoid receptor (CB2) which are found most commonly in cells of the immune system (which helps the body recover from, or prevent, sickness/injury. The CB2 receptors regulate motility/movement, controls the inflammation process that results from certain GI illnesses, and aid in reducing internal pain and sensation. Finally, CBD has been shown to positively impact receptors outside the ECS which effect many diseases such as Crohn’s Disease.
