CBD’s antioxidant effect is another of its interesting properties in terms of prevention and health maintenance.
This (antioxidant) effect, together with its anti-inflammatory properties, has made CBD into one of the most interesting therapeutic weapons that can be used to maintain the body’s cells in good health, thereby delaying their natural aging process.
CBD’s antioxidant effect on brain cells was demonstrated in a study of CBD’s neuroprotective effect on neuronal damage caused by alcohol abuse (Hamelink C et al., 2005).
The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect of CBD has also been demonstrated in the kidneys, where CBD acted as a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, reducing the damage caused by the induced and controlled reduction of blood flow performed in this study (Fouad AA et al., 2012).
CBD’s positive interaction and synergy with the active ingredients of some plants have also been studied. The most prominent study is one where CBD is used together with moringuin, a compound made from the Moringa oleifera (M. oleifera) plant, which demonstrated that the two substances combined enhance their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBD is therefore believed to be a highly efficient compound by those who are concerned with the premature cellular aging indirectly caused by the external factors of modern life.
